BeanStalk ROM with Multi-Window for T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989!

For those of you looking for a good custom ROM with multi-window feature on the T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989, your long wait is over as the latest version of BeanStalk ROM comes with multi-window feature ported from Omni ROM.

This new multi-window feature allows you to multi-task between two different apps in horizontal or vertical mode with an evenly-divided screen.  You cannot resize the windows  yet like Samsung TouchWiz but it’s still better than not having multi-window at all, which has been the case for the T-Mobile Galaxy S2 ever since Samsung released multi-window feature on the Galaxy Note, S3, and Note 2.
