I found ROM-control very useful in ICS. But it can only work on AOKP roms. So is there an app can do the same job on ROMs other than AOKP?

From searching it appears that this manages aspect of the user interface, is that correct? If so then no, you can't do this on any arbitrary ROM because most ROMs don't have configurable settings for all those things. You should look in Settings for what the ROM makes available. – Matthew Read May 2 '12 at 15:07

The answer is no, you cannot, because ROM Control is an app that is geared and orientated towards Android 4 and in this instance AOKP, hence internal API's are different. Back porting it into a non-ICS/non-AOKP ROM may fail due to the dependencies on the aspect of AOKP, such as settings, and ICS internals are vastly different to non-ICS code.

If you are a programmer and like to torture yourself with the challenge of it, then maybe its possible to back-port certain aspects and build the ROM yourself.

Matthew is correct, these controls are specific to the ROM. Many Cyanogenmod ROMs offer settings like these, but there will be no way to access them without being built into the ROM you're using.

We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.

Welcome to Android Enthusiasts. Could you elaborate on this? Where can we find this 'xposed' app? – THelper Dec 28 '13 at 10:15
And which are those "different tweak modules" solving the issue? Also, what is "not true"? – Izzy Dec 28 '13 at 11:57
It's from the XDA forum and can "modify ROM". Quite useful and powerful. – Yue Dec 29 '13 at 9:54
