The Motorola Droid 4 is definitely getting some attention from the developers, especially with another recently released ICS-based ROM for the device. This time it’s an AOKP (Android Open Kang Project) ROM, which is also an AOSP-based ROM.
If you have tried other ICS-based custom ROMs for this device, you ought to check this out and experience more customization options (said to be better than other ICS-based ROMs for this device), as well as greater speed and performance.
This ROM was developed by XDA Developers member Hashcode, who ported the AOKP ROM to the Droid 4. In terms of development status, the ROM is still in beta stage, which means that there are still things to work on. This also means that there will be some bugs and issues, but hopefully the developer can roll out the fixes very soon.
So far, the developers have identified only a few known issues (there could be more). First is Bluetooth, which appears to be on but is not really connected, and at the same time, when you turn Bluetooth on, you lose your audio. Other things that are not working are the Better Camera function (includes Face Detect, front-facing camera, and etc.) and the hardware video codecs.
