KangXperiaProject
bringing AOKP to Xperia

AOKP is an awesome custom Android firmware. (just like MIUI and CyanogenMod).
AOKP is based on AOSP and looks as vanilla as possible, and focusses on lots and lots of user-friendly features. What makes it different from CM is that there are many more user-customizable features.

KANGXPERIAPROJECT
This ROM is a combined work of all members of KangXperiaProject.



AOKP is not officially supported on any of the Xperia smartphones. So we made a Kang XperiaProject team comprising
Supervenom , Championswimmer, Pikpok, mikegapinski
We maintain sources from which we build (not winzip porting) AOKP for all the Xperias.

We are not any great developers (all teenagers). We are just trying to provide users with more ROM options
Our work is not possible without using sources from FreeXperiaProject.


Changes to the UI / framework / functionality of the ROM is the work of Team Kang
Changelog is released with every official build here ---> http://aokp.co

Changes specific to Xperia devices are maintianed by us here

I believe that status7 means it has failed to get prop, I'm not 100% on this but I believe that the lines in the updater script which contain 'getprop' need to be deleted? I can't test it yet as I am waiting for my new acro to be delivered

It's glad to see more and more ROM are starting working for ACRO S. However, please pay attention for the difference between Xpreia S and ACRO S extremly the extenal SD card support.
