For this week’s Galaxy S2 ROM of the week, check out AOKP KitKat ROM.

Based on the latest Android 4.4.2, AOKP ROM now is fully supported on KitKat along with subtle new additions/improvements to AOKP ROM Control.  Although this is specifically made for GT-i9100, you can also easily install on SGH-i777 AT&T S2 using a custom kernel (See below for instructions on that).

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!

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.

How to Install Android KitKat/Lollipop ROM on Galaxy S2! [GT-i9100/SGH-i777] 90

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

For those of you who want to install Android KitKat or Lollipop 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.

This method is also same for CM11, CM12, and CM12.1 custom ROMs.

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.
