    A SPECIAL THANKS :thumbup: to jbdan for everything he put into the AOKP threads during the ICS/early JB days!

    Also, a SPECIAL THANKS :thumbup: to our fine Admin, EarlyMon, for handing me the reins to this thread when jbdan had to step away. I'm having a lot of fun maintaining this thread and it inspired me to create and maintain the N4 and N7 AOKP threads.

    Reasons why I dropped JB and went back to m6....


    • Wake phone with volume keys. I hate having to use the most important button just to wake it up.
    • I could set a 5 minute wait to lock screen. (Screen blanks after 1 minute, but I can wake it shortly after with a touch of the screen.)


    Tell me these features are in the preview.... :D


    BTW, someone should DL the jb and jb1 files and compare them. (Ok, I will.)

    If you want a daily JB rom I'll suggest XenonHD. It has the first feature you seek. And many more. It's like the "AOKP of JB" up to this point and is as stable and smooth as I've seen.

    It has volume wake, new browser features, pull down toggles, clock mod, new transitions that are beyond butter!, sound boost, the list goes on just try it :D

    Or just wait a couple weeks and aokp will have it's first official build!

    edit: and just so ya know, or it might not matter, I've been on it for 4 days now and ran JellyBelly for the 2 weeks before that. Xenon is really good the developer knows how to build a ROM.

    - do I need to flash the jb bootloader before flashing this?
    - do I need to do a special wipe procedure like unmount data then reboot recovery before doing a wipe?
    - are there jb market apks hacked to avoid incompatibility issues when using a custom LCD density?
    - does this preview build allow for changing nav and led colors by chance?

    can't wait to try this!!

    Hmm, might try AOKP once it becomes a better daily driver...

    I compared the Toro JB and JB1 files.

    JB1 is missing two files:
    system\app\SwagPapers.apk
    system\app\GNexusParts.apk

    JB1 zip is about 7.5 hours older than JB file.

    I'd stick with the JB file that everyone is already using. :D

    Oh geez - I am going to have a field day when a non-test build is up and ready. I will need to gather the jb bootloader (please tell me this flashes the same as anything else) and all files.

    AOKP JB - exciting! :D

    This IS an alpha preview, though, and doesn't promise to make a capable daily driver. Give me a beta build or a stable release and I'm all over it, baby!

    I'd rate this below average for AOPK... I know its early but boot time gets hung on Google screen... torch feature doesnt work in power controls... battery drain pretty quick... gmail was not included in the GAPPS flash... and light flow does not work...

    Got plenty of faith in developer though so will keep eyes out for a better version way too early to make judgements :(

    couldn't 4g to work on aokp preview so I switched to XenonHD. Seems similar but the 4g works.

    Yep, 4G doesn't work for me either. :(

    Superuser keeps asking for root rights for Titanium and goo.im apps. I saw something about installing supersu, but it is paid. Is there a free alternative? Also, when I find the "superuser" app in the play store, it shows as "isn't compatible with this device". :(

    Thanks for the info on this ROM. I hadn't heard of it before, checked it out Flashed it and its running great. It has the three things that I use a lot volume wake, toggles, and song advancement by pressing the volume key.
