aokp logo

Late last night, the AOKP team finally dropped their first release as MR1 for Jelly Bean (Android 4.2.1). As you had probably hoped, it contains many of your favorite features from past builds.

You’ll find the custom boot animation, statusbar tweaks, power menu options, custom lockscreen options, a fully customizable navigation bar, more statusbar styles, LED control, sound settings, and more. And maybe more importantly, they fixed some of the bugs that came with stock Android 4.2.1.  (more…)

AOKP Forum Infected With Malware, All Usernames and Passwords Compromised

Oh, the Internet. It’s a fun and beautiful place for the most part, but sometimes, it can be a real pain in the ass. Unfortunately for our friends in the Android Open Kang Project, their forum (aokpDOTco) has come down with an illness, malware to be exact, and all of their user’s usernames and passwords have been compromised. AOKP’s founder, Roman, took to Google+ to break the bad news and to advise people who signed up that this would be a good time to change up your passwords.  (more…)

AOKP’s Kangerator App Will Make Sure You Have the Newest Build Available (Update)

In a matter of days, fans of the Android Open Kang Project will never have to worry if they’re running the latest build or not. Kangerator, created by member adamthecashew of their development team, is an app that will list all current builds with release logs right on your phone. No more searching forums and trying to find which builds are the right ones for your select device.

Update: The application is now live in Google Play. Go grab it.

The application is set to hit Google Play within the next day or so and we’ll update the post and let you know when you can grab it as soon as it drops.

Cheers Adam!

Android Open Kang Project’s Build 3 Released, Go Get Your Custom ROM On

Just moments ago, the AOKP team released Build 3 of their popular ROM for the consumption of the masses. A changelog is yet to be posted, but once it is, we’ll update the post. The team has added a few newly supported devices such as the crespo4g, i9100, i9100g, i9300, and toroplus. Unfortunately, users of wingray/stingray devices will no longer receive builds due to lack of a maintainer.

Update: Here is the changelog.

  • SMS QuickReply
  • Stopwatch & Countdown in the Clock app (CM)
  • Expert Calculator functions (Graph, Matrices, etc.) (CM)
  • IME Switcher & Vib/Ring toggle as NavRing target

We fixed some serious bugs (you can set custom ringtones now), and made a few other fixes & improvements as usual.

AOKP Jelly Bean Build 2 Released for Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7, and Others

Just under a month ago, the AOKP team released their first stable build of Jelly Bean. As expected, it was a hit. But one of the draws to AOKP over the last year, has been the massive list of extra features that were initially missing from build 1. Well, they aren’t missing any longer as build 2 was released last night and includes one of the larger feature-packed changelogs we have seen in some time.

Some of the highlights would be better LED controls, a “Kill all” button in recent tasks, a weather panel in the statusbar, and call answering by using the Home button. The list is massive, so jump below to check it all out.  (more…)

AOKP Developers Add In Their Own Jelly Bean Easter Egg Goodies

Oh, those crazy developers. If you have flashed the newest build of AOKP, then just like the official Jelly Bean build from Google, you can find some amusing Easter Egg fun. Under Settings, tap rapidly on “AOKP verison” which will bring up a flashy picture of a majestic unicorn. Long press on the unicorn and boom, tons of floating multi-colored unicorn heads for you to play around with.

Good work, fellas.

Cheers Bryan!
