AOKP hasn't actually released anything except a statement. If you head over to their page they don't have download links for any JB roms and their official release page actually says that downloads aren't available.

if you look really really close, you'll realize that they're done building it for GN and its simply being complied, meaning it'll be up shortly.

It's up for 3 models currently (S3, Nexus 7, and Nexus S). I've tried MIUI for a little bit but so far, IMO AOKP FTW. Can't wait to test AOKP for the GN (not out yet). MIUI is up for the GN, Nexus 7, and Nexus S.

If I used the gsm gn download link, would it just not work on the cdma gn? I really want the aokp but I don't want to bother downloading the int'l version if its not going to work.

Get bored of the ANDROID UI and then switch to AOKP for a slight refresh.

After that move to MIUI. Use it till you get tired.

Then switch back to Android UI.
In effect, never get bored

Isn't it MIUI what the smartphone Xiaomi Mi-Two is using?
Is it any good?

Poor article information .. it is cyanogen that makes all the roms. And then aokp. And miui take cyanogens roms and then tweaks them from there.

i wish i could find a custom rom with sound quality as great as stock player...
those roms are great (i love paranoidandroid) but none of them has the sound i can get on stock with just Rock equalizer set. they are all weak and their rich dsp managers and equalizers just distort the sound.

That's because they have crap DACs. You'd have to stick with the older Nexus S and its Wolfson DAC, then Voodoo it.
