What is AOKP?
AOKP stands for Android Open Kang Project. It is a custom ROM distribution for several high-end Android devices. The name is a play on the word kang and AOSP (Android Open Source Project). The name was sort of a joke, but it just stuck, just like our infatuation with unicorns.

We fork the source code of Android that Google puts out in the open with every major version release, and we then add the magical unicorn bytes (read: we add some of the coolest features that are both useful and make your ROM awesome).

With AOKP, you can generally do a lot more with your device than what you could do with the original firmware that came installed on it.


Why AOKP ?
We were waiting for when you’d ask this.

There are a variety of reasons why a hilly billy Android user, on a bright sunny day, would suddenly start using AOKP and loving it.

For one, AOKP is lightweight. Most OEMs provide a heavy UI layer over Android and have loads of bloatware (i.e. apps that not everyone use every day, but you cannot remove because they’re “baked in” by default). Since AOKP is built upon vanilla Android source, it has neither of the above.

Also AOKP has features that you will not find on your stock firmware. You can have a multitude of toggles to quickly flip a lot of your phone’s settings right at your fingertips, or you can launch apps quickly from any screen using our Ribbons.

You can change almost each and every aspect of the OS, from its looks to the way it functions, with total freedom. And did we tell you, AOKP helps you make tacos?

My notes from beta testing this rom. It seems a bit more stable than Carbon atm.

1. Cool startup screen
2. Received "Unfortunately, the process com.android.systemui has stopped" on first boot (Clicked OK and got by it)
3. Asking me to insert SIM card
4. The rest of setup went fine
5. Wi-Fi is working well
6. Phone seems to need a few minutes after a reboot, it is laggy at first but then it subsides.
7. GPS Locked right away (Did not try navigation though)

To get data working I did the following (T-Mobile)
1. Went to Settings
2. Clicked on Mobile networks
3. Clicked on Access Point Names, it was blank
4. Clicked on Network operators
5. Waited for Searching to complete
6. Clicked on Choose Automatically
7. I then had data and there were a couple of different tmobile apns now under Access Point Names
8. Also clicking on Carrier settings under Mobile network settings throws the "Unfortunately, the process com.android.systemui has stopped " error

8. Calling a contact doesn't show the contact
9. Calling and texting seem to work fine
10. Recents key doesn't respond to tap or hold
11. Can't find a way to adjust key lights
12. Auto time/date did not correctly set the time

    you guys are nuts.


    not mnay people (at least devs) have the phone. with the s4 steve had it before release. heptic feedback is fixed on cm. only thing broken is incoming calls and camera. this all seems pretty normal to me. there isnt anything bad about the s5 thats gonna make it hard to dev for. its just a 8974 processor. the s4 was 8960 as was the s3 and countless other phones so it was mostly copy and paste

    stop the gloom and doom and actually do some reading before spouting crazy theories
