The second Milestone 2 build of AOKP Android 4.2.2 ROM has been officially released today by the Android Open Kang Project team. There are over forty devices supported by this release, including Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One, Galaxy Note 2, Xperia series from Sony and others more.
There are tons of new features that were added in AOKP Milestone 2 ROM such as the new AOKP Ribbon, which allows users to add navbar and apps actions and other similar shortcuts to show up in a slideable ‘ribbon’. It can be placed wherever you want on your home screen and to make it show up, you will simply need to slide from the bottom, right or left side for the ‘ribbon’ to appear. Also, you can add the ‘ribbons’ to your lockscreen, quick settings panel or integrate them with the notification panel. If you choose to place ‘ribbons’ in Notifications shade, then you should know that these will work as shortcuts instead of toggles.
Enable AOKP Ribbon by going to ROM Control in Settings, use the options and start customizing its appearance and where you want it to appear. Discover this new feature on your own and see if it improves your overall Android experience.
This build of AOKP Milestone 2 is based on the same AOSP Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS improved with some other functions borrowed from CyanogenMod builds. Other small features that have been added with these release are as following: Dark AOKP, Permission Management, Quick Torch displayed on Lockscreen, HDR Mode for AOSP Camera, new toggles, Persistence support and the Superuser from Koush. The HDR camera mode doesn’t work with all Android devices, which is why you might not be able to use it. Hopefully, we will see this released in later versions.

AOKP Milestone 2 Jelly Bean 4.2.2 ROM might be the last version released based on this AOSP build, as Google is preparing to launch the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean at their own event on July 24.
