Hi,

No updates for Nexus 5 since october ; any chances to get a AOKP for Android L ?

Thanks
Looks like there's a little activity on AOKP Gerrit. I tell you what though it's not much I hate to see this ROM go to the wayside. I know it slowed down a lot and it's obviously out of anyone's control. Very disappointing though.

As soon as the head honcho left for CM the writing was on the wall, damn shame, this was my favourite rom but the git is in pieces, no setups even for the Nexus devices, all the other roms are well into LP development and AOKP seems dormant.

Stick a pin in em, they're done.

Sad to hear that, i've been using AOKP for years...

Looks like it's time to move on.

Any recommendations of similar Android L ROMs that have at least part of the AOKP features ?

Thanks !

I wouldn't quite consider the project dead yet (there were 2 changes merged in Gerrit less than a week ago). I noticed that each Android release causes things to go quite. Like they're all digging in to the code to figure out how to port all of the AOKP features. I'd say that L combined with the holiday season will cause things to go quite for a while. Heck, they all may be too busy DDOSing Motorola trying to get a 64GB N6... like me. ;-)

AOKP is not dead. Although things have considerably slowed as some of us 'veteran' members have gotten busy in other aspects of life. However, there is still a talented pool of people working on the project.

Much of the background work for L is underway (Tom appears to have Mako booting as of today). Much of this work happens in the background, or possibly pushed directly to github. (https://github.com/AOKP?query=). No need to run this type of stuff through Gerrit.

As with nearly all new releases, we have to re-do a lot of code, port forward etc. However, each time we do this, we re-write and modularize more and more of our code to try and help make the next port a little easier :)

TL;DR. Not dead, just a little sleepy.

Thanks for the update Zaphod. Looking forward to some AOKP on my Nexus 6... that I JUST ordered from Moto (said like an excited little girl)!! Now I have to explain to my wife that the $768.24 I just spent was a necessity...

If you have to explain ....

She isn't the one.

I just built an AOKP VM again and it's still not building yet you say the team has a working rom, so what am I doing wrong? (breakfast doesn't work either)

including vendor/aokp/vendorsetup.sh
ls: cannot access device/*/mako/aokp.mk: No such file or directory
build/core/product_config.mk:233: *** Can not locate config makefile for product "aokp_mako". Stop.

** Don't have a product spec for: 'aokp_mako'

No such item in brunch menu. Try 'breakfast'

I had my fingers crossed that there would have been atleast a stable build of a sort of vanilla build, then more lolly pop releases after, but a few months have gone by and no talk and/or even a post on whats happening with the new droid version. Hopefully someone can post up proving me wrong but I don't see much happening with AOKP in the future. I would assume that if things were brewing on their end, there would be a forum post with some news and/or reviews on whats to come in the future.

Also, for the people reading this, what is another good rom you recommend? Since there were so darn many people using AOKP, many people will now be starting to look.

Nope, AOKP is still not dead (http://gerrit.aokp.co/#/q/status:merged <-- last merge was 3 days ago). AOKP isn't a huge team of developers and they only develop for the devices they own. I'd rather them pound away making sexy unicorns than waste time on some forum.

If you're looking for another ROM, you could always try Cyanogenmod while you wait for AOKP.
