Mod Type:: ROM

Difficulty:: Easy

Mod Base:: AOSP

Android is all about choices. And here's another choice for AOSP ROM:

"AOKP" (Android Open KANG Project) is a built from source ROM similar to CyanogenMod (but different). I didn't create AOKP, STS-Dev-Team only ported it to the BIONIC.

You can visit the AOKP website here:
http://forum.aokp.co/

Their developers include: Roman, Zaphod-Beeblebrox, Whitehawkx, and more.
The future of AOKP is quite bright as new features are popping up all the time.

This port is based off mine and Hashcode's ICS work for CM9 and it has ALL of the same issues (and possibly some which weren't addressed in the port).

SafeStrap: from Hashcode's blog

I recommend doing a wipe data/cache before installing this ROM.

DON'T LET GOOGLE RESTORE YOUR SETTINGS WHEN INSTALLING THIS ROM COMING FROM GINGERBREAD

For STS-DEV-TEAM website:
http://sts-dev-team.us.to/
and github / sources are now here:
https://github.com/o...ns/STS-Dev-Team

FOR DEVS: Hashcode has a local_manifest.xml setup for this ROM, so that you can repo init from AOKP's manifest and drop in the STS changes to build for all 4 phones.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR GETTING DATA ENABLED:

New GSM only mode under Settings/Wireless & Networks/More/Mobile Networks/Network Mode/ Select GSM only wait till the screen flashes twice (or it says 4G SIM detected would you like to switch to LTE/CDMA) then switch to LTE/CDMA. Data will come up.

NOTE: OLD Method You may have to dial *#*#4636#*#* (or use Phone Info from the market) and toggle data mode between modes. For me toggling to GSM only till the screen flashes and then back to GSM/CDMA auto (prl) works perfect. It will show data for a sec then flash off and about 30 seconds it will pop up to full data.

WHAT DOESN'T WORK:
Camera (in progress)
HW Video Codecs (in progress)
Bluetooth on but not connected = loss of all audio (in progress)
Seems only 1 SD card is sharing, this needs to be corrected with a CM patch -- might also be causing a NovaLauncher crash which needs a battery pull.


ENJOY!

Downloading now!

EDIT: Actually nevermind. Link is no go. Lol

Edit2: You forgot the slash "/" between download and Bionic. It's "downloadsBionic" change it to "downloads/Bionic" in the URL :)
Fixed the link sorry about that

Hey DH -

what does this DON'T LET GOOGLE RESTORE YOUR SETTINGS WHEN INSTALLING THIS ROM COMING FROM GINGERBREAD mean in the OP?

If I'm currently running Axiom on safe side of safestrap...?
If you are installing ICS for the FIRST time it's best to uncheck the box that says allow google to restore my device

Ok what am I missing. One, I can't keep a data signal on 3g or 4g when I leave my house, go into the subway and come out at work. Multiple reboots and toggles don't do squat.

Two, long pressing power simply reboots right back into aokp, I get no options and don't even see the safestrap screen.

Three and most minor does anyone know how to switch to a different keyboard? I don't get the option in the pulldown like in axiom.

Biggest problem for me is data...I like this rom a lot but can't be sitting here with nada. Had to pull battery to get safestrap to come up again so I could toggle back to nonsafe.

Don't enable torch out doesn't work and messed up reboot. You have to go in run control and enable ime switcher. No idea on the data as mine is solid

ok someone help please - I downloaded the latest (2/20) build and cannot get this to install properly in safestrap recovery on safe side. wiped everything, selected install from zip, choose zip from sdcard, external sd card, and install. It says "installing /sdcard/AOKP-4.0.3_r1_targa-2012-02-20-05_15.zip, and it simply says

"Finding update package...
Opening update package...
Installing update...

Install from sdcard complete."

I disabled safe side, downloaded to my Mac, copied to SD-EXT, and tried again, same deal. When I try to reboot, my device simply shuts off. going to toggle back to non-safe... maybe not enough battery? I'm actually connected to battery right now and it states it's at 40%.

Thoughts?
It is installed there is no fancy script
