Over the weekend, Milestone 2 of the Android Open Kang Project (AOKP) was released for the masses. It took a bit longer to release due to some of the developers taking vacation time and other important obligations, but it is finally out and it has a few features that show big progress since the Milestone 1 build. (more…)
The new “milestone” release from the Android Open Kang Project (AOKP) is starting to roll out today. So far, we’re seeing builds available for most Nexus phones including toro (Verizon Galaxy Nexus), toroplus (Sprint Galaxy Nexus), mako (Nexus 4), and maguro (GSM Galaxy Nexus). We’re told that a post detailing the full changelog is in the works, but for now, you can expect changes to the nav/statusbar for tablets, “rewritten” RomControl, custom toggles, and a ton of bug fixes.

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.
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.
Well, the time has come. The AOKP team has released their first official Jelly Bean build and already, they’re off to a great start. Users can expect to see all of the well-known features such as notification bar mods, lockscreen tweaks, and a lot more custom hax. To find downloads and get more info on the build, follow the via down below.
Features you will see (but not limited to) in this build:
Lockscreen tweaks (no custom targets yet)
Navigation bar modifications
Custom kernel performance options
Phone ringer modifications (Flip call to silent, silent/vibrate when headphones are in)
Update 2: The Galaxy Nexus LTE (toro) build is up. [Download]
We’ll be sure to get it booted up and have a nice little run down of the build as soon as we get it downloaded.
Developer nize2beme uploaded a port of AOKP for the Nexus 7 to the forums at RootzWiki last night. So far, this is a very early alpha build and in order to get it booted up and running, he says he needed to take pieces of code from the newest CM10 source. At the moment, the developer is looking to get it up and running with more stability, then will add custom features such as a tablet mode tweak and all of the other battery mods and other AOKP customizations.
If your Nexus 7 is unlocked, rooted, and running a custom recovery, then feel free to give it a go. Be sure to make a backup.
For everyone that has been waiting on the Android Open Kang Project team to release a build for the Galaxy Nexus that incorporated Jelly Bean, you can download a “preview build” that was released just a coupe of days ago. It has all of the Android 4.1.1 goodness you have been dying for, along with some added AOKP goodies.
From what I’ve found so far, they have only just begun to add all of the fancy customizations. For now, you can have toggles in the pull down menu, clock and battery mods, and of course, those awesome AOKP custom wallpapers. (more…)
A non-profit organization named Linaro has recently posted codes that help boost Android system performance by a reported 100%. Their work is focused on how and what the Android OS spends time processing, making the OS run with better efficiency. Since release, it was only a matter of time before that we would begin to see these codes be written into our favorite ROM’s, and the time has come. The creator of AOKP has re-released Build #38 with the Linaro codes baked in, and the performance increase is definitely noticeable. There are also builds available for CyanogenMod users if CM is more your style. (more…)
