Announcement from semdoc: [ROM] [ d2vzw ] AICP - 10.0 - LP 5.1.1_r6 | OFFICIAL NIGHTLIES


Android Ice Cold Project

AICP is known by everyone as Ice Cold Project that started on Desire HD and since then evolved into a mature ROM with the BEST community you can find!!!

Until Lollipop, Rom has always been AOKP based. Unfortunately, since AOKP either stopped development or will make a comeback later this year, we changed our base to CM when it comes to hardware, drivers and some features.

If there are any bugs, either we will sort them or CM team if it concerns their modifications. This rom isn't CM supported so no need to report errors or bugs to them!!

In the beginning we would like to thank:
  • CM team
  • maxwen
  • SlimBean rom team
  • CarbonRom team
  • LiquidSmooth rom team
  • Omni rom team
  • DU team
  • Community

  • @LorD ClockaN
  • @zipsnet
  • @n3ocort3x
  • @semdoc
  • @eyosen
  • @alienmind
  • @Chezbel
  • @Drgravy
  • @eboye

We are now paying for servers that build nightlies and everything that comes with it, so EVERY DONATION will really be appreciated and be used to cover those expenses.
Thank you!!

Latest Stable Release Version 8

Download link:

Full Changelog link:

  • Don't disable Heads-Up. You wont be able to answer phone calls otherwise.
  • You tell... :P

ROMS should contain everything you need to enjoy Lollipop. You are not required to install any Add Ons, simply download the latest ROM, gapps, flash it, and go!
You are STRONGLY recommended to fully wipe your device before flashing, and if possible avoid restoring system apps and system data with Titanium Backup - these can cause stability issues that are very hard to debug. If you believe you know what you're doing - then fine, go ahead, but please don't complain if you experience strange behavior.

How to flash:

  • Don't do it if you don't know it
  • ROM has gapps persistance in between dirty flashes

Kernel in this rom follows CM source with custom additions.

To be able to flash over OTA app, TWRP recovery is needed.

Check here for latest F2FS compatible recovery by @invisiblek:

You can still use CWM and OTA app, but only to download zip file and flash it manually from within recovery. Zip gets saved under AICP_ota folder on your internal SDcard.

If you want to contribute to the AICP or wanna see what is being worked on/merge feel free to visit our gerrit, link is at the bottom!!!

NO NO NO! That was my Luke Skywalker impression when he found out Vader was his Father..

Anyway, I certainly hope the s3 ain't dead. Altogether I know it isn't dead. As for myself, I've used two different versions of this rom so far, and so far it's been my favorite. I haven't tried slim one of my old fav's because of the lack of or newly implemented theming system that I'm not certain I'm ready for at the moment. RRO Overlays or whatever it's called. I've done some reading on it but need to study it more to let the details soak in.

All in all this rom has worked great for me. Very smooth, I was running the DKP lollipop kernel so I can't comment on the built in kernel, but with my settings at 216-1728 and gov tierservative, the rom was smooth as silk and not to bad on the battery. I did enable the battery saver a time or two just to see what happens but I've got to do more testing first.

Right now, I'm torn between this and running my old KitKat favorite, which I've made a nandroid of, I didn't reformat the internal sd and should, but again, no issues either way. The only thing keeping me personally from using it permanently are little things like mapping the home button on the lockscreen to turn on the flashlight. And I like being able to adjust the time it takes to end tasks with the back button, a feature I've only found in Nameless and MIUI. But again, so far so good here. I know more features will come as time progresses. I'd just hate to see it get overloaded with features that I personally don't use. Although many others might. Which is the reason we have so many choices. Well, not as many as we used to but people are working are and I for one really appreciate the work going into bringing lollipop to the s3 or d2vzw and I see it's available for other d2's as well.

Kudos to the dev's again for keeping my old phone cranking and for the bragging rights.. Oh you have a brand new s5 or note 4 or whatever, Well mine has lollipop.. see look.. Ha ha ha.. I'd like to have a new phone. A moto because it seems my old DX got slightly better signal here than my s3 both on stock roms and with the improvised RIL. I don't know if it's sammy in general and I don't know how locked down devices are nowadays, but I imagine it's only getting worse from what I've heard. I've left Big Red for Selectel so I'd have to buy a new phone outright, and that won't be happening for a while due to my layoff and lack of stable employment.

I've rambled enough as always, but thanks again for the sweet rom, I plan to try the newest 02-10 build tonight unless of course I check back later and see a newer one as dropped.

Stock camera should be fine while 3rd party apps doesn't work (like Google Camera).

Make sure that your GAPPS zip doesn't contain script to remove stock camera...
