Carbon ROM for T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989! [Android 4.3][1.836Ghz OC]

For this week’s T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989 ROM of the week, check out latest Carbon ROM bundled with latest Android 4.3.

Carbon ROM Android 4.3 now comes with animation menu that allows you to fully control all of your transition animations.  This is one of my favorite features and Carbon Team has done a fantastic job of bringing customization so you can change every little transition animation to your liking.

For those of you with a T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989, you should be happy to learn that you can install the first AOKP ROM MR2 based on latest Android 4.3.

This isn’t an official build (and we are not sure if there will ever be official builds starting with Android 4.3) but it is fairly-close to the final build and runs pretty smooth.  Also, we saw AOKP ROM Control losing featuring during ICS to Jelly Bean upgrade and taking a long time before some of AOKP core features were added back in.  In the MR2 variation, that is not the case and you will get all of your previous Android 4.2.2 AOKP ROM Control features plus a wee-bit more.

For those of you who need to be on the bleeding edge of Android and also willing to try out “beta” custom ROMs, do check out CM10.2 Android 4.3 ROM for your T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989.

This is an “unofficial” port of CyanogenMod 10.2 ROM, which comes with the latest Android 4.3.   Out of the box, I was actually rather impressed as almost everything was working smoothly except for a slightly buggy camera that seems to work at times and freeze at others.
