Xperia S AOKP Development Begins!


CyanogenMod has always been the go-to custom ROM for many devices, specially those that came with an older version of Android, thanks to its fast performance and customizability, with CyanogenMod 9 (CM9) providing devices with Android 4.0. Then another ROM entered the Android world where CyanogenMod was king. This ROM was AOKP, which was based on AOSP like CM9, but added ‘more than you can digest’ customization options that let you customize almost every aspect of the ROM, and took the custom ROM world by storm.

Now, XDA Senior Member Supervenom has started working on a port of AOKP ROM of the Sony Xperia S, the company’s first dual-core smartphone that debuted with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, much to the dismay of fans that had been waiting for the device for a long time. CM9 for the Xperia S has been out for some time, but the release of AOKP must have surely been awaited by a lot of users, and now finally they will be able to get their hands on it.

But as with all good things, there is a catch. AOKP for the Xperia S is in a very early alpha stage, with almost none of the important things such as calls or WiFi working at this point. Since Supervenom does not own an Xperia S himself, the ROM could take quite a while to get stable. However, it’s nice to see that work on AOKP for the Xperia S has started, and we’ll hopefully a better ROM soon enough.

So, head over to the official development page on XDA for more details on the ROM, and be sure to bookmark it so you can check back at a later date and hopefully find a better version of the ROM. We’ll also keep you afloat of new developments, so stay tuned.
