Android Open Kang Project Milestone 5 Reached

One of the hottest families of custom ROMs out there these days is the Android Open Kang Project (AOKP). With over 30 builds under their belt since late last year, the project has now reached Milestone 5. What does that mean? Basically, when enough features and fixes have been added to the project to merit an official release marker, it’s called a Milestone. These builds are the recommended builds for those who don’t flash the less stable nightly builds.

AOKP has ROMs out for many devices, not all of which have received a Milestone 5 build yet. But the big boys have, including the Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy Tab 10.1, Motorola XOOM, ASUS Transformer TF101, and HTC Incredible. Other devices should be reaching Milestone 5 hopefully within a couple of weeks.

If you’re someone who flashes ROMs and you haven’t tried AOKP, you may want to give it a spin. It includes many enhancements and mods seen in other ROMs, such as Cyanogen 9. It also upgrades the kernel on the Galaxy Nexus, fixes camera issues, and squashes many bugs. Well worth a look.

    AOKP 34 here! I like the nightly builds better myself, probably because I’m a crackflasher lol but in all seriousness,Aokp has definitely proven itself as one of the best (if not the best) rom out there. Beating cm9 (currently)in features and customization. Absolutely a fun and stable rom for my GSM galaxy nexus.Thanks Team Kang
