If you appreciate my work and would like to support me with a small donation you can click on button.
If every happy user of this rom would just donate something I could invest more time in all these Android projects.

Issues and possible workarounds

* After the setup wizard the launcher won't fit correctly the screen but after a reboot it will automagically fix by itself. If you don' like transparent status / system bar go into Settings -> ROM control and edit the transparency.
* Accelerated video playback is supported by MX Player in HW+/HW mode and pretty much every file will play, try both playback method because it depends on the video codec; I noticed that HD videos plays better in HW+ mode while SD (XviD for example) play better in HW mode. For a better audio support (included DTS playback) have a look here.
* HDMI shows a picture but it doesn't fill the TV screen entirely.
* This is not a broken functionality but a lack of this ROM that can only export one partition through USB Mass Storage, if you wanna access to both memories you should use MTP instead of UMS, only CyanogenMod can export multiple LUNs.
* Probably other things...

Features

* USB GPS support (cp210x and pl2303)
* Xbox 360 gamepad support (xpad)
* PS3 USB gamepad support (hid-sony)
* Generic / chinese (Pantherlord / GreenAsia) gamepads support (hid-pl and hid-gaff)
* OpenVPN support (tun)
* Veno congestion control algorithm
* USB audio
* USB bluetooth (It supports only CSR devices, they can be identified typing "lsusb" from an app like "terminal emulator": the supported device will be present with an entry like "Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0a12:0001" ("0a12:0001" is the supported VID:pID). Do not boot with the bluetooth plugged in; plug it once you booted to android.)

Instructions

* You need TWRP to be able to flash this rom. Read the linked thread for instructions.
* Put rom (aokp_spark_unofficial_2_$DATE.zip) and gapps (gapps-jb-$DATE-signed.zip) files inside internal or external sdcard.
* Turn on the tablet in recovery mode as explained in TWRP thread.
* If this is your first install select "Factory reset" from "Wipe" menu.
* Flash rom (aokp_spark_unofficial_2_$DATE.zip), gapps (gapps-jb-$DATE-signed.zip) and, if you're installing this rom on a device that is not the Spark, the required compatibility zip.
* Now select "Reboot".
* Enjoy AOKP 4.2!

FAQs

* If your devices doesn't have a volume rocker you can install one of these apps to control volume from the notifications: Volume in notification, TrayVolume
* WiFi now can stay enabled with display turned off. Note that if WiFi is enabled the tablet won't enter deep sleep so if you're more interestead in battery life instead of an always on WiFi change policy (on "Advanced" WiFi settings) from "Always" to "Never" and select your preferred WiFi timeout.
* Internal memory is mounted at /storage/sdcard0, external sdcard is mounted at /storage/sdcard1. If you wanna swap them (and make primary your real microsd) just edit "persist.sys.vold.switchexternal=0" to "persist.sys.vold.switchexternal=1" in "/system/build.prop" file

* WARNING: before flashing this build you HAVE to flash stock SDK 3.2 using Phoenix Suit and answering "yes" to the format prompt, after that install the new TWRP for SDK 3.2 and proceed. You can do a nandroid backup before flashing with phoenix suit and copy the whole "TWRP" folder from the internal memory to your microsd (or to your PC) if you don't wanna reinstall everything again. In this case restore the backup and after that flash the new zip. If you get any weird trouble do a full wipe.

It's not the browser, it's a problem of the touchscreen kernel driver, you can easily track it down using a touch tester app

Anyone tried AOKP on Onda V972 (v1)4.2.2?
I tried a couple of times to install via TWRP the AOPK, Gapps and Onda compatibility zip. The 3 zips were successfully flashed but after re-booting, I could not unlock the frozen screen and ended up starting again with Phoenix.

@all
I solved the touchscreen regression that was, wrongly, registering multiple touches. Flash this file, it will be included in next builds.

you have to come from an SDK 3.0 firmware because the bootloader has to match the kernel

Am I right that I can use the compatbility-zip for the V973 for cm 10.1 (if its ready) here with AOKP also?

I see there is a lot of stuff to test the next days! Thanks for the AOKP too. It looks like a lot of work to get all done.

One comp zip to rule them all. But 973 is not ready yet, I've been busy with the ROMs, now I can dedicate some time to the devices, but now I have to leave

Hello, just to report. I quickly installed AOKP 4.2 and I couldn't use it because my microSD wouldn't mount and after re-inserting it, I also lost mouting of internal SD... Quite strange. When I go to "parameters/storage" I can shortly see the information of the internal SD card then it goes away, leaving only a menu to install an SD card.

Also, when I insert a microSD card, it tries to mount it as internal SD card because it does not seem to register the real internal SD card in the first place...

Well, I hope my explanations were clear enough ^^

They are but it shouldn't behave that way. Try to flash again using phoenix suit before. BTW, ExFat is not supported.

Installing on my 2nd Spark (the first one is still waiting for digitizer replacement).
Hopefully the zooming bug goes away with the new file.

AOKP is my favourite among the Spark roms.
Did it solve it for you? Because for me and another couple of guys did, but for others didn't. Maybe they've screwed up even the gslWhateverIsItsName kernel driver too

I'm using this ROM and I have to say it's spanky!

Yesterday I took it for a 2-3h spin (configuring a multi-user setup, with a shotload of installs, uninstalls, heavy usage of wifi and screen) and it drained about 20-25%, so I'd say it's a problem with your particular setup.
Mine's not overclocked though since the ROM is still very fresh and I hadn't had the time to do it yet.
