The infamous AOKP team has released their latest Jellybean 4.2.2 ROM build for Android phones, JB-MR1 Build 5! Build 5 adds the following new features:

  • Traditional toggles instead of Tiles (optional)
  • New Navigation Ring configuration menu
  • S Pen support for Note IIs
  • Quiet Hours toggle

Build 5 also introduces official support for these devices:

  • i605 – Samsung Galaxy Note II (Verizon)
  • l900 – Samsung Galaxy Note II (Sprint)
  • i9300 – Samsung Galaxy S III (Intl.)
  • p930 – LG Nitro HD (AT&T)
  • su640 – LG Optimus LTE (SKT)
  • vs920 – LG Spectrum (Verizon)

In addition, Build 5 also fixes several bugs, particularly a severe memory leak issue that has been plaguing past AOKB JB-MR builds.

UPDATE:

I had the chance to run AOKB JB-MR1 Build 5 on my Galaxy Nexus for several days now, and I’d have to say that this is probably the best performing ROM that I have run on my Galaxy Nexus thus far! It’s quite packed with a lot of useful features and has been running extremely stable. The only bug I’ve encountered is that the Wi-FI & 3G/4G indicator in the status bar do not highlight in blue, but that’s a fairly minor issue that has no effect on usability of the phone.

If you have a device that is officially supported by AOKP, I would highly recommend flashing JB-MR1 Build 5. Remember to backup and wipe your system data before flashing!
