aokp-logo-large

In recent years, Sony has become a Good Guy Greg for developers and users by allowing them to unlock their bootloaders and by releasing kernel source code in a timely fashion. Many of their devices and Android modifications are quite unique. Some devices, like the Xperia Tablet Z have an interesting baked-in feature that uses screen to wake their devices by simply double tapping on the screen. The double tap to wake feature was originally exclusive to that tablet. But thanks to AOKP team, users can now use this feature on the Xperia Z family of smartphones.

XDA Senior Member championswimmer recently merged a kernel patch that adds double tap to wake support for the Xperia Z, ZR and ZL. His investigation showe. . . READ ON »

Custom ROM Central Expanded to Include AOKP and SlimRoms

XDA Forums for the LG G Watch, Samsung Gear Live, and Asus Padfone X

Not too long ago, we announced the creation of a dedicated forum for large-scale, multi-device custom ROMs. Originally, this forum was home to development and discussion surrounding OmniROMPAC ROM, and Paranoid Android.

Now, we’ve gone ahead and expanded the forum to include two other important multi-device ROMs: SlimRoms and AOKP. As is the case with the previously created entries in the Custom ROM Central forum, this is where general discussion pertaining to these ROMs belongs, as well as Q&A about the projects themselves, and feature development to be incorporated into the ROMs themselves.

Jelly Bean 4.2.1-Based AOKP Available for Nexus Devices

AOKP

Whenever there is mention of custom ROMs for Android, AOKP is one of the first to come to mind.

Though over the past few months, several AOKP users (including myself) decided to jump ship to other ROMs because of the delay in a release based on Android 4.2. There is good news: The wait is over, as Team Kang has officially released Android 4.2.1-based AOKP JB-MR1 Build 1, starting with the Nexus line of devices.

As with the changes in Android 4.2 from 4.1, the changes in this AOKP release from the previous one aren’t as many as we’ve seen in previous major rel. . . READ ON »
