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.


Code:
==beta1==
merged latest sources
fixed toggles

==alpha2==
fixed FC com.android.phone

BUGS / NOT-WORKING

everything working !!! (except HDMI)

  1. Copy ROM zip and Gapps to sdcard
  2. If coming from stock, flash kernel that has recovery using fastboot (not needed if you have kernel with recovery)
  3. Boot phone, go into recovery (press vol-up(2012) or back(2011) when led is purple)
  4. IF COMING FROM SOME OTHER ROM, make factory wipe then go into mounts/storage and format system
  5. install zip from sd card then flash gapps if you want them (kernel is flashed automatically with zip for 2012 models, for 2011, fastboot flash the kernel)
  6. reboot and enjoy


Sources are hosted at

We all spend countless hours working with thousands of lines of code to be able to bring these ROMs to you. It needs us to devote our precious time, and often we need to spend money to maintain the build machines, hosts and other stuff. So if you like this ROM and if it makes your phone look cool, please consider donating to us.

Im confused, you probably cant use this unless your bootloader is unlocked, but in the steps you say "If coming from stock, flash kernel that has recovery using fastboot (not needed if you have recovery)". So does that mean i can install this along as i have access to CWM?

Sound is great. LED button lights don't work, but I don't care since they're useless in the dark anyway. It'll probably be fixed at some point!

You need an unlocked bootloader. The installer needs to be able to flash a kernel, and you can't do that with a locked bootloader.

Make your steps more clear...it says you dont need to fastboot, unless you dont have recovery. It just says you need a kernel that has recovery and we have recovery without a custom kernel, so just make your steps more clear.

sorry
i have edited one word in that makes a hell lot of a difference now

basicaly the instructions were written at a time when recovery was possible only with custom kernel thus if you had recovery it implied you are running a custom kernel (which means you had an unlocked bootloader)

anyways people on the forum should have realised by now that aokp/aosp/cm will never be available on locked bootloaders
