BeanStalk ROM with Android 4.4.2 for Galaxy S2! [GT-i9100/SGH-T989]

beanstalk-rom-android4.4.2-galaxys2

For this week’s Galaxy S2 GT-i9100 and SGH-T989 ROM of the week, check out BeanStalk ROM!

Based on latest Android 4.4.2 sources, BeanStalk ROM brings you the bleeding-edge of Android 4.4.2 along with a high level of UI/system customization we are used to on Android 4.3 custom ROMs.

First, BeanStalk ROM is fast and furious with everything working out of the box.

Second, BeanStalk ROM gives you a ton of customization (I think actually all of them found on Android 4.3 ROMs) including Dark Stalk, Halo floating notifications, and a slew of customization includi

For this week’s ROM of the week for Galaxy S2 GT-i9100, SGH-i777, and SGH-T989, check out CM11 ROM.

Galaxy S2 GT-i9100

For GT-i9100, check out CyanFox ROM, built on CM11 and everything working out of the box including calls, data, camera, camcorder, video, sensors, wifi, gps, etc… I do recommend trying this build out as daily driver since everything is working and you should find a pleasant Android 4.4 KitKat experience.

Omni ROM with Android 4.4 KitKat for Galaxy S2 GT-i9100!

omni-rom-android4.4-kitkat-galaxys2-gti9100

For those of you who have been waiting for Android 4.4 KitKat ROM, you can definitely try out the latest Omni ROM, which comes with Android 4.4 KitKat.

Omni ROM is a “preview” ROM and video replay is not working on this ROM so I do not recommend it as a daily driver.  BUT, you can easily make a backup ROM before installing this ROM, try it out, then restore your ROM.

Other than video replay not working, Omni ROM has everything working out of the box including data (to get data working, make sure you put your APN for your carrier!!!), wifi, bluetooth, etc&#

How to Install Android 4.4 KitKat ROM on Galaxy S2! [GT-i9100/SGH-i777]

howto-install-android4.4-kitkat-rom-galaxys2-1

For those of you who want to install Android 4.4 KitKat custom ROMs on your Galaxy S2 GT-i9100 or SGH-i777 (AT&T S2), you must be using latest CWM Recovery v6.0.4.3 or higher.

Now since recovery is an integral part of kernel on the Galaxy S2 GT-i9100 and SGH-i777, you will have to flash a kernel with the latest CWM recovery v6.0.4.3 or higher.  The easy work-around this is to install any of latest CM10.2 ROMs then simply reboot into recovery after installing CM10.2, which will give you the latest CWM recovery since CM10.2 comes with it.

But I have made things even easier

For this week’s ROM of the week, check out latest version of MIUI ROM V5 for your Galaxy S2 GT-i9100 and SGH-i777.

Based on Android 4.1.2, the latest MIUI ROM is better than ever, giving you a ton of free themes, UI makeover, and lots of features not found on TouchWiz/AOSP custom ROMs.

Xiaomi, maker of MIUI ROM, has released their own Android smartphones into the China market and you can also get them on Amazon if you want.  But if you own a Galaxy S2, you can simply flash the MIUI ROM turn your S2 into a Xiaomi phone and see what the fuss is all about.
