Unofficial AOKP Port Lands on the Galaxy S III

Unofficial AOKP Port Lands on the Galaxy S III

Just yesterday, we brought you news that the Samsung Galaxy S III had been graced by official nightlies of CyanogenMod 9. Now we have further choice in AOSP-based ROMs thanks to XDA Recognized Developer Faryaab, who has ported Recognized Developer romanbb‘s Android Open Kang Project ROM to Samsung’s latest flagship device.

The ROM’s feature list is quite extensive, and the release is highly functional as well. Since Faryaab used Team Hacksung’s device tree, users can expect that everything that works on the CM9 nightly builds should work here as well.  Like before, however, the following minor issues should be noted:

  • FM Radio: currently not supported, try Spirit FM from market
  • Using flash in camera causes problems.
  • LED is not being lit when charging.

Those looking to snatch a piece of the AOKP pie should continue on to the ROM thread.
