    hi max, what do you mean by (unless coming from AOKP rom)??? do i just install the rom without doing wipe data
    AND if an app doesnt work on a rom, what could that mean??

    • Jordi Paulus

      If you’re coming from a previous version of an AOKP build, there is no need to do a wipe/factory reset.
      What do you mean by: “If an app doesnt work on a rom”?
      Give a example! 😉

      • Eric

        I came from AOKP MR1 Build 5 and tried to do a dirty update, and only deleted my cache and dalvik cache, but it didn’t work right still. It will just keep saying system UI has stopped working over and over, so I rebooted and just did a clean rom install. Is there something I’m missing for doing the dirty update and keeping my data?

        • Jordi Paulus

          Install Titanium Backup and backup all your files and system data! 😉
          I don’t know why this is happening.. :/

      • ghost

        i mean like, (viber) and (gtalk) used to work on my previous rom which was (rootbox)… but now after i installed aokp build 6, it doesn’t work… viber only works for messaging but the calling is not working,and gtalk the same only for messaging….???
        do you have any idea?

    • dom

      hey max does any roms have a screen capture built in

      • Nishant

        Just hold the power button and you may see the screenshot tab…if you still couldnt find it then you may find the option in the ROM Control tab…!

      • Arnon

        in most of the AOKP based ROMs (or all of them?) you can hold power button + volume down button to take a screen capture

  • prashanth

    Does it have multi Window

    • Docta

      It would have definitely been mentioned.q

    • Jordi Paulus

      Multi Window is only for TouchWiz based roms.. ;D

  • Anthony

    im using aokp mr1 build 5 and i want to go to build 6, so i dont have to factory reset right?

    • borghorhay

      No you don’t. I just came from build 5 as well. Just flash the rom and g apps without wiping any data/factory reset, dalvik cache etc. All your data, apps & settings will remain the same, make sure you do a backup before flashing the new build though, just in case. Doesn’t hurt to be cautious. The new lockscreen customisation that Max talks about in the video is really cool.

      Has anyone figured out how to change the storage location on the default camera and video recorder?? I can’t get it to save onto my external SD, so I can hardly record cuz I dnt have much internal space left. Any help here?


      • Tommy

        I’ve just been manually moving the files via whatever file manager, but if anyone knows an easier way, please share.

        • goolong

          Use ES file explorer then you can set the default download locations, i think camera store locations is also there.

  • kemanth

    does blue tooth tethering work in this rom?????

    • ragu 486

      its not working…same problem here

  • heavy g

    Having troubles with the screen turning off.
    Sometimes trying to make a phone call and screen won’t turn back on – very annoying when trying to end a call! Also, screen randomly won’t turn on (phone is on though because power button turns on the backlight buttons). Had to hard reset multiple times. Went back to build 5 – found that more stable.

  • jassi

    hi dude this rom does have theme chooser please reply soon……….. i m waiting………..

  • AJ

    im also having few problems, phone freezing while in usb mode, phone dial pad not loading etc. im reinstalling rom to see if that fixes, if not going back to build 5.

    • Anthony

      its works great with me

      • Sarah

        Did that. Can’t connect my Bluetooth with ugld3 modem

  • James T

    Looks great and was running well for me. As soon as I tried using voice to text recognition though it locked up and now anytime you touch somewhere expecting a keyboard to come up it locks up. Unable to get any keyboard now.

  • Sarah

    Can I use this ROM for 9100m?

  • sarah

    super frustrated…
    changing roms

    • sarah

      found out the issue.

      it seems like non of the 4.2.2 rom’s support canadian modem. ugld3.
      if i change it then bluetooth works but then it puts me in roaming, therefore mms doesn’t work and, i have to tick allow roaming data to have data connection.

      this sucks

  • Pedro-San

    I can’t get any Google apps working (Play also). There is also not any option to add a Google account, just exchange and normal mail. I also can’t switch on data transfer via USB….


    • Jordi Paulus

      Try reinstalling/install google apps.

  • Eric

    I’d like to try installing a different kernel for the t989 and this rom, but I have no idea where to start for that, any searches only find unofficial versions of this rom. Ideally, I’d like to be able to overclock, and possibly dual boot.

  • Juan

    When i installed it on my t989 it works just fine til i realized that my cellular service wasnt working and i have to do a restore on it…so can anyone help me on this problem before i reinstall

  • Joel

    I just install AOKP MR1 Build 6 ROM for Galaxy S2 SGH-T989 T-Mobile. Everything is fine except for 4G connection. It dont have a data connection without wi-fi.

    • Lazlo

      toggles a top right ->there a t-mobile bars icon …push one times or two times … you can change data on off.
      This help to me.

      • Lazlo

        …or any cellular service icon of course (not only t-mobile).

  • Alan

    I love this rom, only downside for me is chainfire3d doesn’t work. (not compatible with 4.22)

  • Jenn Huynh


    I have problem of reading Vietnamese on this ROM… Could you please help me?

  • Emma

    Hi there, I am now using AOKP MR1 Build 6 on my phone (GT-i9 100 4.2.2). It is great but I can’t seem to get any of my data off of the SD (apps and contacts). If I plug the phone into the computer all of the files on it are there but the selection for accessing the SD is greyed out on the phone. Any suggestions please? Thank you.

    • Jordi Paulus

      I had that isue once.. U are fucked! You need to do a Factory reset and you need tot reinstall your ROM! ;(

  • Asher

    I have a problem with this build and build 5. When i connect it to the computer and enable usb mass storage it works but when i copy something to my sd card usb mass storage crashes and messes up my sd card.

    • Lazlo

      Settings -> Storage -> click menu button -> USB computer connection
      check the box next to Media Device (MTP)

  • brent

    i love the rom very much but for some reason it wont let me transfer anything in usb storage mode besides that one issue i love this rom very much.

  • brent

    nvm i figured out a way around that issue. so yes this rom is THEE BEST nothing less

    • kluz

      I had the same issue. How did you fix it?

  • Emma

    Hi there, I can use WiFi at home with this ROM but when I am out and about 3G doesn’t switch on and I can’t find a menu to set it up/test it. Can anyone help please? Em

  • Raymz

    I have the same problem as Emma. Can’t excess my SD card and can’t restore my backup. It says MD5 mismatch. Please help anyone.

    • Raymz

      I have solved md5 problem but can’t excess sdcard. Please help.

  • Andray

    Is there a way to get tango or viper video calls working? It’s kinda of weird because skype video calls are working fine on this rom…

  • Lon Alkalay

    Hi Max, or anyone that can help.

    Google Play will not work what so ever.
    I’ve cleared cache, data, reinstalled, fixed permissions, rebooted. And it STILL Crashes Instantly upon opening it.

    What do you suggest?

    • Emma

      I found making a fresh down load of gapps from the website (deleting the old one from my phone and computer first) and then transferring it to the phone SD for re installation helped resolve this issue for me.

  • HamidHelal

    I’m waiting for someone , who playing with it and recommend for my T989

  • Emma

    Hi there,

    Thanks for your help with the SD card Jordi, I re installed build 6 and the SD card can now be read for app transfer. 3G is also now working. My signal strength is not as good as it was, does anyone have a fix for this?

    Finally please can anyone help with my storage problem?

    Internal storage (phone?)= 156MB App (data and media), cached data 13.73MB, availiable 9.02MB out of 1.97GB.
    Internal storage (USB?) = 95MB Apps, 87.50MB Pictures/video, 64.00KB Audio, 94.20MB Downloads, 20.00 Cached data, and Misc 122MB, availiable 11.08GB out of 11.49GB (lots of storage but I can’t access it),
    SD Storage = 6.88GB out of 7.60GB.

    My phone keeps telling me it is running out of storage and I can’t downloads apps. I have tried to research this and have cleared various caches (they fill up almost instantly) and redundant odex files for old apps etc, even deleted apps/photos/text messages/wigits etc but still no storage. This happened after re installing build 6 and I have done so twice more since – still the same.
    Any new ideas would be most welcome, I really appreciate your help in advance.

    I love this ROM and don’t want to change it for anything else so that is the only suggestion that I probably wouldn’t go with!

  • Tayeb

    i can’t download any app from play store , i press start download but it keep loading ?

  • Shawn

    Does any one know how we can over clock this ROM with a custom kernel that works?

    My quadrant benchmark tests were higher with Jedi mind trick

    • Tommy

      So since the time of this post, do you like this ROM, or JMT more?

      • Shawn

        I like both but both have some issues. Im still using Aokp Build 6… just hope build 7 fixes the issues and has an overclocked kernal

  • Avinash

    I have a galaxy s2 i9100. I tried installing the AOKP MR1 Build 6 and it gave me an Error, e: system verification error. I tried again with a secure XWKE8 kernel, but the same continues. Do i need to go in for a Siyah kernel or not.. If i do which kernel do i go for? I am running stock gingerbread. I really feel lost.

    • matt g

      U need to install Gapps…… follow the directions, simply search how to install a rom on my galaxys2 9100i

  • Craig

    Does this ROM support T-mobile 4G? I can only get 3G were I used to have 4G?

    • matt g

      Yes update gapps with goo manager

    • Jose

      U can still have 4G signal if u see H+ in the signal bars then u have 4G.

  • matt g

    Ok if u haven’t downloaded goo manager from play store do it…this solved all my glitches with this rom. Gapps has a….. 2013 update camera is now working no more glitchy screen everything flawless. On T-Mobile t989

    • Shawn

      I dont know why, but when I downloaded goo manager to update / flash Gapps The service stopped and kept crashing every second… I had to flash the original Gapps that AOKP provided in order for it to work again… any one else have that problem?

  • Frankie G

    installed this rom last week and has worked great all except for one thing, calls have been sounding cloudy to some people. I’m not sure if anyone else has had this issue or not and if there is any kind of fix for this. i have the T989.

  • Nestor

    Frankie G, go to dial pad, menu, scroll to noise cancellation option and select it., this worked for me.

    • Frankie G

      Thanks Nestor. That resolved my problem and people can now hear me lol

    • t989 user

      I’m at the dial pad, but I don’t see menu, do you mean “settings”? Even after I click on settings I don’t see noise cancellation option.

      Do you mean “Noise suppression”?

      It’s already selected and people have a hard time hearing me, they described it as muffle and choppy.

  • Roman

    Only ran for one day. Interface is beautiful and every app works. Unfortunately battery life is half what it used to be with liquid smooth. Also noticed that my phone stayed warmer than normal (not exactly hot just noticeably warmer) than with liquid smooth. When I checked the Device Battery for usage, it said 43% was used by Phone. I made 1 3 min phone call. Also 41% was used by messaging, I made mabye 10-15 sent and received text messages. It’s really nice but gonna try something else, gotta have a full days charge or else it’s pointless.
    Liquid Smooth (and most decent ROMS) gave me a charge all day till midnight with a little left
    This ROM, my battery died from 8am to 5pm 🙁
    Could be a setting I need to change but couldnt find it. I am open to suggestions.

    • Roman

      Oh one more thing, no data switch on toggles…..really needs a data switch in toggles. Really liked the transparent status bar, really liked it.
      This was for a T989.

    • matt

      I have the same problem. Battery life is poor. But everything else is perfect. I don’t know much about kernals. Can anyone advise. Do I need a new kernal or is that the same as just changing performance settings. I want performance and good battery like original samsung rom. Asking too much?

  • Ranas

    MHL Adapter Is Not Working, It Was Before, Is This An Aokp Issue Or Do I Need A Different Kernel? Or What Else Could Be

    • Ranas

      Plz Help With MHL I Need It Plzplz….Someone….

  • Shawn

    for all complaining about battery life…

    Go on ebay and buy 2 batteries and a wall charger for about $10 (make sure its 1850mah or better with good seller reviews)

    I usually go through 1-2 batteries a day… at night I can charge one with the wall charger and the other in my phone and im good to go again the next day…

    • matt

      The only problem with this is that I have to take my case of every day and taking the battery out of the S2 isn’t very easy compared to other phones. I doubt it will do the phone back much good taking it off daily either. May look into bigger batteries.

  • schorsch

    Hey guys,

    • Jordi Paulus

  • Philippe

    Great ROM! only problem I had with it is that it corrupted my external sd card. I had to format it so I lost all my data (not that important). Otherwise recommend it! (or go install the milestone 1 version, even better)

  • t989 user
