RELEASE for S3 Mini
Android Open Kang Project 4.4

New release (20131129) of AOKP 4.4 for S3 Mini is available!

For flashing KitKat, we recommend you to install our TWRP recovery (available on Download page)!

If you want to say thanks by donating us using PayPal, feel free 😉

Do full backup before installation and wipe data/cache (factory reset) after installation (only from stock ROM).

If you’re updating from older AOKP version, you don’t have to perform a wipe!

You can get it on our DOWNLOAD page.

I’d be glad, if you shared links to our download page, instead of direct links to download.
Also would be great, if you wouldn’t create the mirrors 😉

    Its kind of stupid question but why apollo is not installed? Cm 11 has it

    • It’s exclusive of CM… if you search for it in the play store you’ll find the free (ads included) version, the full version is for Cyanogen… But once more, you can take it out from the ROM CM and install it in anywhere.

    Do I need to flash GApps for that? if yes which one should I choose to download?

  • Marcos Gonzalez says:

    Maclaw, they teach in how to put screen recording in any 4.4 rom, can you try it?

  • Gonzalo says:

    The Gapps for this rom are generic or specific for this device?
