For this week’s ROM of the week, check out AOKP ROM MR2 for AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, Canadian, GT-N7105, and GT-N7100 Note 2s.

It’s been quite awhile since AOKP Team has been building Android 4.3 versions of AOKP MR2 now but we’ve got some even better news, they are already working on Android 4.3.1 versions.

What is new?

AOKP MR2 brings some new additions to AOKP ROM Control Settings and biggest addition is probably the “Animations”, which have been implemented already into custom ROMs like PACMan ROM and others.  You get to fully control every transition animation on your phone, which can give you true custom transition animations.

Of course, AOKP isn’t going to give you 3 wishes or stuff like PIE Control, HALO, or ParanoidAndroid Hybrid Settings.  BUT, it is going to give you the stability and performance built by AOKP Team, which may be a complete different experience from other ROMs that have simply ported AOKP features.  All AOKP ROMs for Note 2 are official AOKP ROMs except the GT-N7100 version, which is ported.

That being said, you can always opt to use alternatives like LMT Pie launcher, Floating Notifications, and Xposed App Settings if you absolutely need features like on ParanoidAndroid/PACMan ROMs.

Overall, AOKP ROMs have always been in the forefront of UI/system customization through its AOKP ROM Control Settings.  If you want to check out what’s coming soon with MR2 milestone, definitely give the AOKP MR2 nightlies a try this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

    Was wondering is there a hotspot that works with android 4.3?

    • Max Lee says:

      Hotspot should be working out of the box for all Android 4.3.

      • Alvin says:

        When I install the trevE mod 11 22 2012 it always says installed with errors. I have tried this on the pacman rom as well as the carbon rom and got the same message. Any suggestions?

        • Max Lee says:

          Try using the one on the ROM, “Tethering and portable hotspot” under settings->wifi & net.

          • Robert H says:

            Max, would you know if any of the Note 3 ROM would be able to be ported to a Note 2. The new Note 3’s are using a touch wiz with version 4.3 and has a lot of cool features with the pen. Thanks, keep up the great work.

    whenever I try to install a rom, it starts and after the installation aborted Feedback.

    what I do because the only rom I could install was a jedi jedi 17 and then 19, now in this jedi 19 can someone help me?

    • alex says:

      what recovery version are you using? try switching to TWRP, which you can get via goomanager app on the playstore. just install it, and then go to options, and find InstallRecoveryScript (or something like that). it has proven to work better for me.

  6. Brandon says:


    Is this the overall best AOPK rom or what about Bean Stock?

    Sprint version is broken. Everytime I try to copy over to my phone, it says “cannot copy file. device is disconnected”

    • john says:

      that makes 2 of us have same issue

    • Sam says:

      I have the sph-l900, and had the exact same problem, but figured out a fix last night.
      step 1) DL AKOP from:
      and dl the latest version/ud, as of right now its 10/31/13, the one on top of the list, i guess the update from 10/18 is not going to work.

      step 2) DL Android 4.3 Gapps from the link provided here on this page

      step 3) factory wipe, install akop, install gapps, dalvik cache wipe, reboot, should work fine.
      One thing that didn’t go off without a hitch was the google apps installs, like i never got maps and i needed it today, and we all know how great sprints service is, so just dbl check in the play store under “my apps” when you have a wifi link.

  14. P. T. says:

    Can someone please tell me why I get an error email every time I try to flash 4.3 rom??

  15. Drew says:
