I don't know how the current situation is with AOSP/AOKP and HOX. But when I tried it in ICS days, it was buggy and battery hungry. And that happened to me as well with my old DHD even right before I got my HOX.
When I buy an HTC I know I never gonna have the lastest version on time, I can live with that by now. The 4.2.x doesnt mean much to my HOX. And I have it on my N7.

Ah ok, that would be even worse. If we hadn't enough with OEM's delaying of porting the skins/kernels/etc..
