As some of you may have noticed, I'm Android Police's resident AOKP nut, running the popular custom ROM on both on my Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7. Good news, everyone: Android Open Kang Project has reached Milestone 1 of its Jelly Bean release, and official downloads are now available for all flavors of Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7, and Nexus S. More supported devices should be updated tonight and tomorrow.

Unicorn POWAH!

Team Kang notes that this will be the last update before the Jelly Bean 4.2 AOSP code becomes available, whenever that is. All of the bug reports from popular modder forum RootzWiki and those submitted to Team Kang's Twitter account have been addressed. A few new features have been added, most notably the ability to adjust the width of the newly-customizable tablet navbar. You can also add vibration to the lockscreen targets, hide toggles, and do some nifty new things with the clock and calendar in the notification drawer.

This time we definitely focused on fixes, we managed to close each bug report received on Rootz and Twitter in the last few weeks.
But AOKP isn't AOKP without new features, right?

  • Adjustable NavBar width for Tablets
  • Allow "Vibrate on Touch" behavior for Slide unlock
  • Toggles can be hidden like in ICS - long press on the Settings button!
  • Clickable (short & long configurable) Clock and Calendar in the Notification Slider

Further notes:

  • Evita (AT&T HTC One X / XL) is back!
  • Tunas (Galaxy Nexus phones) ship with a different kernel (LeanKernel 4.5.0), you might need to reset your Color/CPU settings in ROMControl. Do it if you encounter any weird colors (usually green) on your screen.
  • Grouper (Nexus 7) includes the stock kernel from Google

Happy flashing!

AOKP JB M1 (WTF BBQ) is available for download from the AOKP site now, as well as through the Kangerator app. In both cases, remember to flash Gapps afterward, even if you're coming from the latest build.

    You'll find that torch functionality is much improved as well!

    • Justin Swanson

      Just want to give you guys a huge +1. I love AOKP. Do you have a sign up spot for people who want to test the 4.2 nightlies? (when they arrive of course)

    • phinn

      Are you supporting any phones unofficially? Specifically I'm talking my Dinc2 (vivow).

  • Andrew

    Awesome. Great work guys!

  • DrMacinyasha

    If you've got GooManager, you should receive an update notification sometime in the next 12 hours or at your next reboot.

  • grammarpolice

    shouldn't be "til" not "till"?

    • Jeremiah Rice

      I've always used "till" - apparently both are acceptable. http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/till

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Cameron Summerson

      AFAIK, "til" is slang, and "till" is more proper. Kind of like the difference between "u" and "you."

      • cjfromsanandreas

        But that makes no sense. "Til" is just an abbreviation for until. Why add an extra l?

      • dobbsy

        You're mistaken. 'til predates till.

    • grammarpolice police

      @4f5aacdc48a7d573a59f39bd9053b100:disqus Yeah, except if you're going to be the grammar police, you should check your own post. "Shouldn't be 'til' not 'till'?" This statement makes no sense at all.

    I wish we can get some AOKP love for the EVOLtE

    • http://twitter.com/AOKP_ROM AOKP

      we're not taking any more devices on officially for a while. Only exception will be if a lead developer gets a new device

    • Scott

      Should have bought a Nexus!

      • rob90262

        Had one and got horrible battery life moved on maybe a S3 in a month or so

    any chance of touchpad?

  • Casen Brashear

    I'm loving AOKP on my RAZR MAXX

  • daveloft

    I like it, except for the missing multi-tasking button. I see no reason to replace it with a search button, especially considering search is available in the top left.

    • Dinofan01

      I'm almost positive that is a user choice. AOKP lets you customize almost everythingthere including what buttons.

      • jacob

        this is the answer you are looking for.

  • Dinofan01

    Did they adopt the CM toggle style yet? That's literally the only thing keeping me on CM.

    • Scott

      That's funny, I like the AOKP style toggles. If CM had those I'd use CM more often. You can change the order and what toggles appear on your drop down status bar.

  • aots16

    Does this have the feature that allows me to change a song in progress with long presses on the volume buttons?

    • jacob

      yes! I was missing this feature from builds 4 and older. since B5 it has worked great for me!

  • timwoj

    I am sad to see that the d2spr is not supported :(

    how do you find the battery life on this ROM? I was running Paranoid Android but found the battery life to be getting worse. Currently running CM10 and the battery life is great.

    • cguella

      For me - AOKP JB Release 5 works well with LeanKernel

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=290601972 Justin Crowley

        thanks man!, I'll check that out

  • rmp20

    Does the voice dialer over bluetooth still not work properly with the latest Gapps? This is a huge problem for those of us who actually use our phone as a phone.

    • Ryan

      mine doesn't. been looking for a 'fix'.

  • kumar

    loving AOKP on my Droid 4! I'm running an unofficial port, made by the renowned dev Hashcode, and I think it's better than CM10, and has more features than codename android! keep up the great work!

  • D-Licious

    In call volume is still super loud on the lowest setting!

    Hey I've been using aokp on my verizon galaxy s3 for a few months now, i'm currently running milestone 1 with the kt747 kernel. I have 1 issue that ive had here and there on earlier builds as well, and that is that after installing a custom boot animation the screen will flash white 3 or 4 times during the animation on boot up. Ive tried installing the animation using several different methods, but stillthe problem persists. I know that this particular animation works fine because ive had it work on previous builds.

    Can anyone help me with this?
