The State of AOKP
We've been a bit more quiet than we've meant to be lately, and decided it was time to catch you, the user, up with what's going on in Team Kang Land.
We hope you've been enjoying our nightly builds. If you didn't know we had nightly builds, we're very sorry. We've been posting them on http://www.androtransfer.com/?developer=AOKP
Several of you have reported problems there - problems such as extreme slowness and the builds downloading with the wrong file extension on your phones - these problems are being worked on and we expect them to be resolved. If your device doesn't seem to have as many builds as some of the others, it's due to unforeseen issues we had with that particular device/build for that device, we promise we are not playing favorites!
Now, some announcements....
First, a ‘build’ is coming. We’re getting very close to an official, non-nightly JB build. Just throwing that out there with no ETA to let you know that it is a real thing that will happen, pretty soon.
Second, a new IRC channel for support has been created - join #aokp-support
on Freenode for any questions you have regarding the use/problems you encounter with the ROM. We realize that #teamkang
can get a little hectic (and lets face it, caustic) sometimes, but that’s the place for irreverence - #aokp-support
will be strictly business, and will have rules enforced. All of that is ‘in progress’ right now, but soon will be there for you, with friendly Team Kangsters and fellow users there to help you get your AOKP questions answered.
Third, we are currently working on a major revamp of aokp.co
. We’ll soon have a wonderful new site that will be more streamlined and useful!
Fourth, we have a renewed sense of community - expect to see more of us on the usual suspect social media and forums!
Finally, we are seeking device maintainers! Here are the rules for becoming a device maintainer for us:
~be in “good standing” with the community
~be comfortable with gerrit/git
~submit clean, easy to read code
~keep the device they are maintaining “up-to-date” until at least the next release of Android (big release: GB, ICS, HC, JB)
~submit original work, or at the very least keep authorship of all commits not written by the maintainer
Final decision will be made by a vote.”
If you’re interested, please hang on to that interest - we will begin taking applications sometime shortly after we release build 1.
That about does it; may the Kang be with you! Hope this has been enlightening!
