We would say too much, too soon. But we’re rather elated that the dedicated AOKP team has unveiled an update to Build 2. Outed just last week, the build brought the famous Jelly Bean goodness to the G-nex, Nexus 7 and others.

Now we have access to Build 3 which aims to improve the clock, with stopwatch and timer functions. A nifty new calculator app with advanced calculating functions also appears. You can thank CyanogenMod for those two items. Lastly, known issues with Build 2 have been appropriately addressed and fixed. For a quick recap, here is the new feature list from Build 2. Build 3 may not bring much in the way of eyecandy, but it does polish up the image and ties some loose ends overlooked in Build 2:

  • General

If you’ve never used AOKP before but are curious, do be aware that doing so could cause damage to your phone should the operation fail. Take caution and always backup by booting into recovery and creating a backup. Then and only then you can wipe data and cache and then begin flashing. The Build 3 party is live now and located in the links below. Don’t let us keep you, go get your AOKP fix now!
