AOKP Android 4.2 Build 3 update brings support for Galaxy Note 2 LTE, more Galaxy S2 devices

AOKP fans will be happy to know that a new upgrade has been issued. The update, an MR1 based on 4.2 and dubbed Build 3, adds support for five new devices, including the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 LTE, T-Mobile’s Galaxy S2 and the Acer Iconia Tab A510. Support for the international Samsung Galaxy S2 i9100 and i9100G (Exynos and OMAP versions, respectively) are also supposed to be coming, though a couple of issues is holding that particular device back until sometime tomorrow.

More than just new device support, though, you can expect some very nice changes on the software front. The biggest change will be the addition of a UI mode selector, so you can switch between phone, phablet or tablet at the quick press of a button. I’m sure the new Galaxy Note 2 users added in this update will especially enjoy that one.

Other changes include transparency options for “all the things,” dual panel support for any DPI setting, the return of Car Home, a quick unlock feature for the lock-screen, the ability to hide the navigation bar (slide up from bottom to bring it back), and more. You can find all the details you need about today’s juicy changes and additions here, but if your device is supported then why not just give it a whirl yourself? Find all the links you need here, and don’t forget to back your current image up and do a full wipe if you’re coming from another ROM or base build.

    This is not based on the unreleased 4.2.2. Although they mention it in their announcement it is only stating that they hope it does not make them start from scratch.

      Thanks, just made the correction.

    “Here we go again! We’re eagerly waiting for the 4.2.2 update from Google – hopefully the team won’t need to start over again. ”

    The new build is not based on 4.2.2

    Nice to see it officially come out. I’ve been enjoying cherry picks for months now.

    why is there every galaxy s3 variant, (even us cellular!) but no sprint?

    • NYCHitman1

      Nobody on the official AOKP team owns a Sprint SGS3, and they do not have an official maintainer of the device otherwise.

    I love being on the cutting edge. Updated my Gnex this evening and everything runs great. I’m coming off build 1 so I really like the power shutter on the camera.
