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?
