What is AOKPCB?

"This project is a representation of the benefits that open source brings. Using the Android ROM source of Team AOKP, we bring you a rock-solid, feature-rich ROM, topped off with a serving of PCB goodness that gives your device a very unique look.

We plan on adding more features and modifications as the ROM progresses, so feel free to leave us suggestions and feedback via the forum threads or join us on IRC."
-Team Broccoli

How does it look?

Just thought I should say that yes, we stopped AOKPCB for ICS since JB was on the way, and when Goo.IM went down, it took all of the AOKPCB ROMs we built with it That was the only spot we had been hosting them unfortunately…

If all goes well though, we are planning on releasing AOKPCB for JB, however as AOKP JB is quite young (we base our source from theirs), we’re going to wait a little bit until more devices are added, and things get stable. Our team is a fraction of the size of Team Kang, so it’d be much tougher for us to manage an early ROM at this point.

It’s in the cards though, so as soon as it can be done, IT WILL BE!!!!

So glad that it seemed to be a success, Team Broccoli wants to thank everyone, especially the users, for your support and bigups.

Don’t forget to keep checking back, or subscribe to our RSS feed above!

Thanks or being patient everyone!"

I apologize for not keeping everyone informed. As it stands now, the plan is to get a final R3 (ICS) release out, however our repo is currently borked (I know, just before the last ICS release!). We're trying to get it fixed up (remicks is really, he's great with our builds), but hopefully that will happen soon. Afterwards, it's kind of up in the air for what we're going to do with JB. remicks and I have started working on Project FNV, which is a different type of ROM, being built by the community, however there is still a chance that we will make AOKPCB(ean) the way we like it, and keep Project FNV true to it's goal of being a community ROM.

It's obviously a LOT of work to maintain two ROMs, including websites, social media efforts, etc., but we're doing our best. We really love giving back to the community in this way, and it is more than amazing to hear good feedback. At the very least, when Theme Chooser arrives on Jelly Bean ROMs, you'll be able to use my PCB Themes as I will port them over ASAP. Again, I would love to keep AOKPCB going, however the team still has to discuss this past our plans for an R3 ICS release.

Hope that kind of clears the air a bit, and please don't consider this to be a "we're quitting" message. Life is crazy for many people, and lately things are no different for most of our team. We hope you'll understand, and keep watching this thread, the PCB Mini-site, and its RSS feed for future updates!

Thanks for your patience during these less than ideal times, but rest assured we'll always be taking care of our work to do with this project. Stay tuned for more!

We'll be in touch, but new nightlies may not appear for the next few days (not much will change, as R2 has a slew of goodies for your enjoyment!)

Cheers, and please spread the word + let us know your experience with R2!

Those of you with OFFICIAL devices are encouraged to PM me and/or come by our IRC channel to help with testing this weekend. Sorry for the interruption in builds but I want to make this as stable as possible before I run a full build cycle again. Thank you for your patience and your support!


"Today we bring you our second Official Release! This has been about a month in the making and includes all of the changes from our Nightlies. You’ll also notice that there are MANY more devices that we now build AOKPCB for. Please continue to give us feedback as we are building these ‘blind’ (we don’t have the actual devices), so tester feedback really helps.

Note that you should perform a full-wipe, as there have been some core changes. You could try a dirty-flash, but we wouldn’t recommend it for R2.

The changelog below contains everything that has been added to R2 of AOKPCB, and as it stands, R2 is based from AOKP Build 37 (+ newer commits).

Thanks to testers and everyone who gave feedback!"

  • Optimized certain images (signal strength, etc.) with thanks to chevycam94’s effort

  • Second nightly build
  • Again, probably not much new, and note that if there are no nightly changelogs for a particular day, it just means there were no notable changes
  • Also, comments will be enabled for nightly builds so issues can be tracked easily

  • First nightly!
  • Not much would be different from R1-M5

What kernel is included? Official AOKP comes with Glitch ics kernel? I don't see any mentions about Glitch/Sixstring on the credits.

The theme is nice.
