AOKP MR1 has just been released for Galaxy Nexus! Based on latest Android 4.2.1, the AOKP MR1 brings the stability/speed of Android 4.2.1 and AOKP ROM Control customization into perfect harmony.

One of the major features added in AOKP MR1 include the ability to add unlimited/any widgets to the lockscreen. This is very useful since you don’t even have to unlock your phone to check your e-mail, watch your stocks using stock widgets, check out weather in other countries you travel frequently, and much more.

I also feel like the latest AOKP MR1 has improved vastly in speed, definitely this is a ROM you must try if you haven’t yet.

Right now it’s only available for GSM and Verizon Galaxy Nexus but should be available for Sprint variant soon. (I will update this post when that happens.) You can also try Xylon ROM, which is “very” similar to this and just as good in my opinion if you don’t have GSM or Verizon GNex.

What are you waiting for? Try it out and let me know what you think.

      first use latest cwm, second move clockworkmod file to data/media using file explorer with root access, then restore from cwm.

    I’ve waiting some months to get AOKP 4.2.X done. Am still on rooted stock 4.1.1 with franco.Kernel.

    Do you recommend the change to AOKP in this new release? Worth doing?

    Everything working fine? Battery performance also?

    Max? It this has a network mood like 3g and 2g? I need a network mood.

  5. adam says:

    How is the volume on this rom? I am using the AOKP ICS rom with volume+ because I just can’t stand how quite the stock gnex is. Is there a volume enhancement in this rom or could you recommend a kernal that would enhance volume?
