AOKP releases build 2 of its Jelly Bean ROM
Custom ROM lovers, it's time to get a bit excited because AOKP, the up-and-comer of the mod world has released a huge update to its Jelly Bean ROM with support for 16 devices, which isn't much, but it's a solid start. So, if you have one of the supported devices, which includes the Nexus S 4G, Motorola XOOM (and XOOM LTE), Galaxy Nexus (GSM & CDMA), and Nexus 7, you may want to try out this ROM. 

It is considered to still be a beta version, but we've been running it and have had no problems in the past couple days. The biggest of the updates now allow for the tablet UI on any device, custom vibrations on phone calls, a "kill all" button in the recents menu, full theming options for Contacts and MMS, and the 720p recording that we heard about for the Nexus 7. 

Another cool new feature is the ability to add up to a total of 7 buttons to the soft nav buttons tray. So, in addition to the standard Jelly Bean "back", "home", and "recents" buttons, you can add a search button, app link, or more if you'd like. 

For a full list of features, and supported devices, hit the source.

AOKP kills my battery. The BEST GNex ROM out there is Eclipse Build 15. That ROM with Lean Kernel @ 1.6GHz is completely EPIC.

AOKP STILL has a long way to go. Eclipse Build 15 is the fastest & most stable ROM that I have tried. It also has every feature you could ask for.

I have tried EVERY ROM out there. (Literally) Some have more features, some have great battery life, some have great stability, some are lightning fast, & some are extremely smooth. Eclipse Build 15 has everything. It's the perfect marriage of everything I have stated.

Anyone with a rooted Samsung Galaxy Nexus or Nexus 7 please do yourself favor & check it out. You WILL thank me. lol

i tried it out and there's things i like more like the darker color scheme but customization is terribly lacking in comparison to AOKP.

Yeah but what is the point of having great customization if the ROM is no good? AOKP kills battery & it's very laggy.

not from my experience. did you give the ROM time to settle? also have you even tried the new build?

My AOKP + franco gets significantly better battery life than Eclipse + lean in battery life. But you do know that every phone reacts differently right? That's why there is no one size fits all custom ROM.

yeah, like a "my phone was made on Monday, yours was made on a Friday" kind of thing.
