Nice, are you going to be maintaining both threads or will the Rootz one eventually take over, since AOKP now has an official home here? I'd rather follow just one thread if possible. Also, is the latest 1.7 (per the XDA numbering) different from the one that you linked to a couple days ago to give us a "taste"?
Sportsstar89 (XDA) is keeping up with that thread, while I do pop my head over and support users and assist. I, myself, will keep this one updated with all the official AOKP news/updates as they come.
1.7 shouldn't be much different, maybe the only thing is the mute key working or not.
