AOKP ROMs are gaining so much popularity these days that many developers are creating their ROMs based on the AOKP builds. One of the latest AOKP ROMs to be released is Milestone 6 that features stock Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich equipped with the latest advanced features, smoother performance, and customization options for users to enjoy.
Thanks to XDA Developers member karoodee, HTC One X users will be able to experience the blazingly fast AOKP ROM. Since this ROM is considered to be an unofficial port and the HTC One X is not a supported AOKP device, expect to see some minor bugs that are still present in this ROM. Despite these setbacks, it is still completely stable for everyday use.

But, he keeps himself up to date, so now he has a dual-core beast in his pocket, and is looking forward to getting his first quad-core monster, and when it comes, his first eight-core phone. Perhaps he should be called Mr. X-Core, where "X" equals the number of CPU cores.
