AOKP ROM vs Official Jellybean ROM for Galaxy Tab 2.0
For installation instructions on AOKP ROM in Galaxy Tab2 P3100 see my guide from the link below.
AOKP ROM vs Official Jellybean ROM
AOKP is a light weight and it includes Nova launcher in addition to default jellybean launcher, due to it’s light weight packaging it does not even include a file browser and of course due to it’s after market nature you have to install google apps in a separate package. There’s nothing new in the UI and it includes all the extra settings found in the cyanogenmod ROM’s and with the ability to customize Navigation, Status and Toggle buttons.
The real difference with the AOKP and Official Jellybean ROM lies in the performance and the time between charging. I have already benchmarked these two fields when I reviewed the official jellybean ROM for Tab2 http://news.indiandragon.in/2012/11/26/galaxy-tab-2-jelly-bean-android-4-1-1-upgrade-review-performance-magnified/.

The benchmarks clearly shows above 2k points increase in performance scores between Official ROM and AOKP ROM mainly due to the optimised kernel and interactive Processor Clock management.
As AKOP includes different processor governance rules, I benchmarked in Interactive mode in which the processor states are switched between 300MHz and 1.2GHz and in Performance mode where the processor stays at 1.2GHz, un-surprisingly there’s just few hundred points difference which shows that the processor governor switch the processor clock to maximum performance when needed.
