We know it’s not been too long since build 35 came out, but you gotta appreciate the efforts development team is putting in in keeping and updating the AOKP rom to its best, with all bug fixes and issues fixed promptly, almost on a weekly basis.
Build 36, features-wise, isn’t a biggie and is more of a bug-fixing version while also adding on support for new devices (Samsung Tab 2 7-inch – congrats to rare those who own this). With build 36, default ICS wallpapers are back, so is your favourite Phase Beam Live Wallpaper I guess (am yet to try it).
Compared to build 35, which brought the lovely T-Mobile Theme Manager from CM9 to AOKP, it may not sound a very compelling update – quite rightly – but those who can’t resist one they know can simply download it and flash it – it doesn’t take more then few minutes after all.
If you are still on Milestone 5, update to build 36 to get Theme Manager and other goodies. But if you’re on build 35 already, it’s okay to skip this one. Here’s the official changelog of build 36 to further help you decide:
- fixed MTP not being enabled by default (yet once more)
- added Galaxy Tab 2 7″ (espressowifi)
- moved tablet clock to the far right of the statusbar
- updated tuna kernel to faux 17m
- added Transformer Prime (tf201)
- updated Nova Launcher to 1.1.2
- fixed potential weather service FC
- updated p4 devices
- added more padding to statusbar buttons
- updated Mms emoji code from CM
- added delayed ring feature to Phone
- fixed a bug when hiding sender information, photo would still show
- default ICS wallpapers have returned
- added SwagPapers (AOKP Wallpapers)
- updated theme engine from CM
- wifi icon cut off has been fixed on tablets
- fixed volume slider showing incorrect volume in a voice call (making it look like it wasn’t full)
- added USB Tether toggle to devices that support it
Installation Instructions (in brief)
Well, if your device is official supported, just download the build 36 from the official AOKP download page here, and also the gapps (at the bottom of the list). Transfer the rom and gapps files to your android phone/tablet, reboot to cwm recovery, (optional) make a backup, (recommended) factory reset the phone, flash rom, flash gapps, and then reboot. That’s it.
