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. Links are provided below for your convenience. Drop your specific device’s source files onto the device’s internal storage, follow the instructions and go about enjoying AOKP Jelly Bean build 2!
