AOKP Jelly Bean build 3 released, solid for phones

0. phoneArena 24 Sep 2012, 18:14 posted on

The Android Open Kang Project team has released the 3rd build of its new Jelly Bean custom ROM today, just over one week after build 2 was released, and there are some nice new features in this version. It's not the huge update that build 2 was, but this should be a solid bump for those of you using AOKP on your smartphone...

You should check out the unofficial AOKP Linaro builds over at xda. Much faster and a lot more stable.

Yep. Linaro + Jelly Bean's project butter is amazing. This rom is by far the fastest and most stable my Galaxy Nexus has been on. The AOKP Build 3 of it is already up. I'm about to flash that one now.

I just flashed it so far so good. Let me know what you think. Just make sure you flash a Linaro kernel. They have some listed in the OP.

Been running AOKP since like ICS Build 10. It's only the best.

I've been on AOKP since ICS build 7. It was nowhere as big as it is now. I came from Redemption ROM. I've been on the AOKP Linaro builds since some random date before JB build 2. I will be sticking with the much faster and more stable AOKP Linaro builds from now on.

you should try the Codename Android JB ROM, it's pretty sick. it brings the best of AOKP and then some. o:

Does anyone know if this build incorporates the new radios?

Radios aren't included in ROMs, and must be flashed separately.

Someone please help me out by answering if you can please.

What do I need to do to download this rom? Do I have to root?

Also, does it give a group text messaging option in the default messenger app? (I'm using a Galaxy Nexus). I used GO SMS PRO but I'd much rather have my default text app for that feature.

yes, you should root (even if you dont need to, but you more than likely do).

AOKP and Cyanogen are like "Stock +". They dont generally change the apps unless they are adding functionality. You'd need to go to the site to get an exact answer. Generally though, if its a stock option, it should be there still.

Ok thanks.

I have to research all this now, I have no idea how to root nor how to install all this lol.

Google one click root for Galaxy Nexus. Very simple, just follow the instructions and don't panic.

it doesn't work like that with the baked in app. i just checked.

32. The_Innovation (Posts: 538; Member since: 18 Jul 2012)


So this AOKP thing doesn't unlock anything of the sort huh? I saw this rom once made by someone that unlocked a group text feature in the baked text app. I figured this might have done that too.

you can send to multiple peeps in a thread in the normal SMS, i dont remember, but I think it splits into individual threads as peeps reply.

yeah, you can do that on like anything. i remember the Razr's stock ICS build could do what he's talking about but not AOKP yet.

well you need to press download... and the computer downloads it for you(amazing right? *winks*)

You need to root. rooting will not void your warrenty unless you take it to the verizon store while it is possible to check it your phone is rooted

if you phone got ran over by a truck then the verizon people aren't going to find out
if you unroot your phone then verizon people aren't going to find out.(you cant unroot a custom rom, but just restore stock rom backup and you should be find)

I prefer cyanogen or paranoid android

paranoid+franco kernel = amazing performance and battery

notice i use optimus one, not gnex

Paranoid Android is awesome my 2nd choice but AOKP customisations are second to none, thats what made me switch since like build 20 for ICS

posted on 24 Sep 2012, 20:01

14. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5540; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)


i'm running the 2nd build with the Franco Kernel currently and i think performance is really good, battery life is ehhh, less than what i'm used to on my Razr. i think i'll skip this build but for future reference is there any way to just update the ROM version for AOKP or can i only flash it and start from scratch? i'm kind of new to modifying Android to the extent that i can from this Nexus and let me know about some ROM/Kernel combinations that work good for you! i don't have to have an AOSP or anything but i mostly want a Stock JB experience and i like AOKP's customization options.

franciscofranco is the best kernel developer on xda... too bad he sold his optimus rom...

20. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5540; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)


yeah, i tried Trinity before this and i'm using an upclocked GPU for all the kernels i'm trying. Trinity and AOKP weren't that great together in my experience and Franco delivers in performance but nothing is comparing to the battery life i got on my stock ICS Razr.

Just flash AOKP and wipe cache and dalvik. You should be fine. If its bringing issues that's when its advised to full wipe (system, factory reset wipe) then install clean and should work perfect

posted on 24 Sep 2012, 23:50

23. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5540; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)


ohhh, didn't think about actually NOT doing a full wipe. haha thanks guy. xD

25. maxican16 (Posts: 363; Member since: 29 Sep 2011)


There really isn't a way to update the ROM version other than flashing. You could try a "dirty flash" (flashing the zip after only wiping cache and dalvik cache), but I wouldn't recommend it with the changes to stock apps AOKP added. I would recommend a factory reset and wiping dalvik cache. Remember to flash the latest version of Google apps before leaving Recovery Mode.

Using an app like Titanium Backup, or ROM Toolbox helps back up and restore user apps (NEVER restore system apps... EVER). A custom launcher also helps because you can backup your home screens.

I've tried Bugless Beast (Gapps included) and Codename Android, both with Franco's kernel. I've tried AOKP. I think my favorite is Codename Android so far, but I haven't tried AOKP B3.

Franco's kernel also improves my benchmark scores, and using the ROM performance settings to undervolt, I've achieved 5 hours of screen on time with the extended battery. Granted, that was on Wi-Fi, but still, not bad.

27. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5540; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)


yeah, yeah, it's a pain in the ass though. the most recent gapps has a real out of date Play Store and you have to replace it with the most recent version for your JB widgets to not FC and my apps aren't really a problem because i just back them up into a flashable zip and i use Nova and it backs up it's settings but i'm real OCD about my settings man, i don't like having to change them all back to perfection over and over again.

i want to try Paranoid Android next time i get a good chance to.
i'm not really ready to do AOSP ROM's yet but i'll look up Codename Android.

I'm rocking CNA right now. Just as much configuration as AOKP, but also has lock screen tweaks.

How do you back up your apps into a flashable zip?

well i've tried PA 2.x w/ Franco, a Linaro AOKP build w/ the recommended AIR Kernel and CNA w/ Franco and i like the CNA combination the best. i'll be rocking it as my daily driver for now. thanks for the suggestion! ;D

how was the Linaro build?

posted on 27 Sep 2012, 11:54

47. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5540; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)


it was alright, i didn't notice any kind of instability and it adds the ability to add more shortcuts to the navbar ring like CNA but it doesn't really offer anything compelling over CNA. my next favorite was probably PA but i just think there's too much fluff in CM10 and not enough of the good stuff that's in AOKP.
