How to Install Infinitum AOKP on AT&T Infuse 4G
Infinitum AOKP ROM for the Infuse 4G, by XDA Forum Member mg2195, is a port of the ROM of the same name for the Galaxy S, and brings you a sleeker AOKP ROM, based on Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0, with great performance and amazing customization options.
Below are some notable features of the ROM:
- Huge RAM patch
- Windows Phone 7 Font
- Increased call volume
- Stock theme with some visual mods
- Modded Market that works even after changing DPI
However, the ROM is under development so there are a few issues in it as noted below:
- Camera works partially. If it doesn’t work, try changing settings in Camera app
- Car dock audio doesn’t work properly
- Bluetooth doesn’t work
- TV Output doesn’t work.
The ROM is otherwise very suitable for daily use if you can get past the issues listed above. AOKP provides great performance and a high amount of customizability, so be sure to try it out.
Let’s take a look at how Infinitum AOKP ROM can be installed on your AT&T Infuse 4G.
NOTE, Please Read: Since this is an AOSP based ROM, some features like 3G video calling will be unavailable as those are only possible on stock Samsung ROMs (video calls using 3rd party apps like Skype will work fine though). Also, if you use Swype as your preferred keyboard, you will need to download the beta version from beta.swype.com as Swype is also not included in the ROM.
This ROM and the guide below is compatible only and only with AT&T Infuse 4G, model number I997. It’s not compatible with any other device. Do not try this even on the Rogers Infuse 4G. Check your device’s model number in: Settings » About phone. If it’s not I997, please do not attempt this.
The methods and procedures discussed here are considered risky and you should not attempt anything if you don’t know completely what it is. If any damage occurs to your device, we won’t be held liable.
