What is AOKPCB?
This project is a representation of the benefits that open source brings. Using the Android ROM source of Team Kang, we bring you a rock-solid, feature-rich ROM, topped off with a serving of PCB goodness that gives your device a very unique look.
We plan on adding more features and modifications as the ROM progresses, so feel free to leave us suggestions via the forum threads or by using our Contact Form.

Release, Nightly, or Theme Chooser?
Here at Team Broccoli, we like to provide you, the power user, with the latest bleeding-edge products that we can provide. This means that we offer two lines of AOKPCB, both 'official releases' and nightlies, as well as a stand-alone version of the PCB Theme.
Releases are deemed to be of utmost quality and stability, at least to the best point that we can make them (don't expect them to always be flawless). If you're looking for a daily driver ROM, you'll want to choose this one. Updates will not come as often, however.
Nightlies contain our latest experimental recipe, which can include new features, mods, theme elements, etc. These versions are compiled automatically by our buildbox every night, and are possibly not as stable or well-tested as the 'official' Releases of AOKPCB. Be forewarned!
Theme Chooser versions are compatible with ANY ROM that supports the CM/T-Mobile Theme Engine. This version of PCB is 'portable', meaning you don't have to use AOKPCB in order to enjoy the theme.
We're on Github!
AOKPCB is completely open source, meaning that you can clone/fork our projects and build AOKPCB yourself. Find our team page on Github here --> AOKPCB by Team Broccoli.
Getting started with Git can be confusing, but we highly recommend reading their help section, which has easy-to-learn examples of basic Git functions that should be enough to get you going.
