RELEASE for S3 Mini
Android Open Kang Project 4.4.2

New release (20140117) of AOKP 4.4.2 for S3 Mini is available!

For flashing KitKat, we recommend you to install our TWRP recovery (available on Download page)!

If you want to say thanks by donating us using PayPal, feel free 😉

Do full backup before installation and wipe data/cache (factory reset) after installation (only from stock ROM).

If you’re updating from older AOKP 4.2/4.3/4.4 version, you don’t have to perform a wipe!

You can get it on our DOWNLOAD page.

    Great release, but I confirm torch problem, and I can not sync calendar. I tried to deinstall it and install again from google play, but still does not work.
    In google acount settings there are not option to sync calendar.

  • Erick says:

    Hey the latest update is great but i’m still experiencing problems with the in-call volume since its very very low, even when i activate the speaker mode is still very low; if you could include a fix for this or a way to boost the sound on the next update, thanks!

  • helpful says:

    Boot animations created from gif file using ROM Toolbox Pro no longer will install. Downloaded ones will still install. In previous version of this ROM it worked fine. Thank you for your attention.
