Unofficial AOKP Released for the Xperia T
We initially brought you news of CyanogenMod 10 by FXP hitting the Sony Xperia T. Since then, more developers have been working on making CM10 even better for the device, and that includes XDA Recognized Developer tilal6991 and Elite Recognized Developer codeworkx. With the additional help, CM10 has gotten a whole lot better in a very short time. Thanks to this, an unofficial AOKP has also made its way to the Xperia T.
XDA Recognized Contributor championswimmer, who is a part of the KangXperiaProject that has brought unofficial AOKP to a bazillion other devices, has posted the unofficial Jelly Bean AOKP for the Xperia T. However, tilal6991 has also offered to help be a maintainer.
So far, there isn’t much information about the ROM itself. It boots and acts about as well as the local CM10 port. Since it is based off of the CM10 build, this is to be expected. The reported issues on CM10 include Bluetooth, audio routing, and, of course, the camera. There may be a few bugs that haven’t been reported yet as well. Given the developers working on all this, it likely won’t be long until both CM10 and AOKP are stable and working perfectly. For more info, check out the original thread.
