Android 5.1.1 ROM for T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989! [Validus ROM]

It’s been a quite awhile since my last update on the T-Mobile Galaxy S2, particularly because every Android Lollipop I’ve tried have been very buggy and not recommended as daily driver and also development has slowed down.

But, this week I decided to take the plunge and try out several different ROMs.   To my surprise, I have finally found a good stable Android 5.1.1 custom ROM I can recommend, and thus I am writing this post.

CM12 ROM Alpha for Galaxy S2! [Android 5.0 Lollipop]

For those of you wondering where is Android 5.0 Lollipop for Galaxy S2 smartphones, I have some good and bad news.

The good news is that there are working versions of CM12 ROM alpha, which will give you the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop.

The bad news is that these ROMs are still in “alpha” stages, meaning there are many bugs.  However, if you do want to try out the Android 5.0 Lollipop today, you can make a backup ROM, try Lollipop, then restore your previous ROM.

AOKP ROM + Uber Kernel for T-Mobile Galaxy S2! [Android 4.4.4/2Ghz OC]

For this week’s T-Mobile Galaxy S2 ROM of the Week, check out latest AOKP ROM with Android 4.4.4 along with latest Uber kernel with up to 2Ghz overclocking support. (Updated 9/15/2014)

Although this isn’t official AOKP (as there’s no more official builds for T-Mobile S2), it’s a solid performer and you can expect to get all of latest Android 4.4.4 AOKP features along with full ROM Control.   Add in the latest Uber kernel (and overclock to 1.89Ghz, my recommendations setting, use TricksterMOD App on Play Store) and you have a fast-performing custom ROM with the latest and greatest Android 4.4.4 custom ROM tweaks/features.

CM11 ROM + OnePlus One Conversion Kit for Galaxy S2!

For those of you looking to try out the new OnePlus One smartphone, did you know you can install CM11 ROM and our HighOnAndroid OnePlus One conversion kit on your Galaxy S2?

This combination essentially turns your Galaxy S2 into OnePlus One, you will get nearly all of OnePlus One software features like OnePlus One lockscreen, Hexo theme, OnePlus One camera, Voice Recording app, and Screencast app (allows you to record voice while recording screen but having some trouble getting working on SGH-T989, works fine on GT-i9100 and SGH-i777).
