Question [Q] Moving to AOKP

I'm currently rooted, but running stock ICS.

How do I get to AOKP without loosing my apps and their data safely?

I'm fairly comfortable with ROMs/rooting on my Droid phones. Just a little nervous with my spendy tablet.

Thanks guys.

Titanium backup. Oh and if you want AOKP, you might want to check another site for the latest version.

Thank you! XDA doesn't have the latest version? Wha?

Man I am soooo nervous to unlock.

Also I guess my next question is with AOKP updates. How do I apply those without wiping cache/data and all that every time like on my Droid?

Sorry, I would speak my mind about moderators around here, but I'd probably be banned for free speech.

It's easier to bash the President than it is to say anything negative about an XDA moderator.

Glad to see freedom of speech is still alive and kicking. Hehe. Not the only forum with that problem.

And I wasn't trying to be negative. I thought that XDA was THEE place to go for Android stuff. Am I wrong? Where would I locate the newer version? AOKP.co? Just don't wanna download from Uncle Jimmy's used Android ROMs or anything.

Thanks.

I concur with you completely. I thought XDA was THE place to be. Apparently, there are other discos in town and there is a lot of fighting in between them.

It is not the popular opinion but simply put the forum is not controlled by the government. There is no free speech here.

And you're ok with that? Wow....

Back on topic though... how do I easily update AOKP versions?

all I ever do when trying a new rom, is back up with Titanium Back up and also with Clockwork.
I install the new rom and see if its working fine. Then reinstall my apps and I am good. If all else fails, i restore to a back up on Clockwork

Of course I am ok with it. Those are the rules I agreed to. Do I think the mods are fair? It depends on the situation.

But simply put this is not a public board. It is a private board that the public at large may view and join as they wish. Grow up.
