KOA (KOH-AH) IS THE HAWAIIAN WORD FOR "SOLDIER"
Built from CM9 Source Thanks to DHacker, Hashcode, DroidTh3ory, Google, Android, Cyanogen, AOSP

Alex, Russ, Gerland, Aaron and DemoManMLS: for being my testers and not being mad about having to wipe data every time lol. Thanks Guys! Would also like to thank all the other developers here. Arcanexvi, DDX, Nitro, EmericanX and anyone else. If I forgot to add your name, it's not personal. There are just so many great devs here and it's hard to remember all your names lol.

So what exactly is KOA ROM?
KOA ROM is a custom ICS ROM built by me from dhackers CM9 source which can be found here:
