For this week’s ROM of the week for the Galaxy S2 GT-i9100 and SGH-i777 models, check out latest Android 4.3-based SuperNexus ROM.

The latest SuperNexus ROM v3.0 will give you near 100% pure Google Android 4.3 experience with no additives.  This isn’t the most customizable Android 4.3 ROM out there but it certainly is the one that’s going to give you near stock-like experience as if you had a Google Nexus phone like the Galaxy Nexus or Nexus 4.

The SuperNexus ROM does pretty well, pretty stable except some minor issues like stock browser flickering (which happens on most Android 4.3 ROMs but you can use any other 3rd party browser such as Chrome to fix the issue), touch-focus not working for camcorder, and some random reboots (right after installation but the problem went away after).

Certainly, I’ve tried many Android 4.3 ROMs on many Android devices so far, this is one of the best builds I’ve seen so far.  If you are looking to experience the latest Android 4.3 on your Galaxy S2, definitely check it out this week’s ROM of the week and do let me know what you think!

    Installed this ROM had problems with trying to access camera settings, then Gallery app was playing up. Tried to do a reboot after downloading my apps from Google Play, phone would not reboot froze. These 4.3 ROMS are bad news at the moment.

    • Rubic_cube

      While I agree in the overall summary, problems I faced were different. I have posted them below.

  • Alberto Maldonado

  • neoBIT666

    Not stable… Wait 4.3 updates next weeks

    Problemas en camcorder en cambio de horizonal a vertical… y varias cosillas mas.
    Bateria si… buen rendimiento. Pero tiene todavía muchos bugs, no recomiendo hasta próximas actualizaciones.

  • john

    Installed on my gs2 can not view any thing in my gallery, so need fix. Not stable

    • Rubic_cube

      Same problem. I have shared my experience below.

  • Rubic_cube

    So, I did test this ROM… and glad to report that I did not experience any Chrome browser flickering. My most common problem with other ROMs have been the Camera app. This ROM was good in that aspect.

    However, I am back on ShoStock3 (4.1.2) ROM. I think I am going to wait for this ROM to mature to a point where it is declared stable enough for use as a daily driver.

    From my experience: Gallery app did not work – probably because jpg information wasn’t getting interpreted properly. I tried installing picture viewer apps and they had the same problem. Apps like Whatsapp could not look at folders that actually contained jpgs. I was able to access the folders via FileExplorer and open the images in PixlrExpress. But Gallery view did not work – to me it was sort of a deal-breaker. Also, Some apps force closed involuntarily while still in use.

    Luckily I had a complete nandroid backup of my previous ROM and was able to reinstate to last stable state on ShoStock3 ROM.

    • Rubic_cube

      Edit: Stock browser did flickr for a bit on sites that had video content and FC’ed at times. Chrome worked perfect.

      Another observation that I missed sharing before: When editing a picture on Instagram, the phone rebooted involuntarily.

  • Sudhish

    I agree with the comments of Rubic_cube. The gallery application does not show jpg images but shows only PNG. Also the picture clicked by the camera are not visible.

    Another problem is on enable voice access the touch stops working and the phone needs to be factory resetted

  • Abhishek

    With all these problems mentioned above and still No big changes as compared to 4.2.2. its better to stay on to 4.2.2 till further updates.

  • Srinivas

    Hi All,
    I am using supernexus roms from the more than 8 months.
    last night I have installed the latest 4.3 in my at & t i777 model, and the phone is asking for the SIM network unlock PIN, I got the PIN from the customer care and that was not working.

    guys please help me to get out of this issue.

    • Srinivas

      finally..I have unlocked my phone with galaxy sim unlock app using busy box…
      feeling happy

      • Lucas

        Hello,
        I’m with this problem also.
        Please explain to me how should I proceed to unlock my device.

  • Shrini

    Hey guys,
    Please avoid
    installed this ROM some hours ago.. its the 1st day. Though i didnt face camera issues as like many, the Camera app is perfect and also the features changed to earlier 4.2.
    but the problem i faced a lot is flickering of few apps like YouTube and All-in-one toolbox wher i backup my apps and restore whenever i upgrade to another ROM. here the app turns into a black screen..and as u touch the screen and is visible back..but selecting etc is difficult.. and yes YouTube too is flickering a lot..
    apart from this am unable to adjust my navigation/ notification bars..as like earlier u can change the battery icons, notification icons etc.. here in this ROM u cant do this..
    i am shifting to CM 10.2 (4.3 JB) will come with further comments.

  • SGS2-I9100

    TOTALLY UNSTABLE!!! Restarts when it wants to, main menu and focal crashes. I’ve been using Cyanogen Mod 10.2.
    Plz fix bugs.

  • zuned

    ..gallery not working.
    Else is well enough.

  • buchi

    Waiting for official release….. From Samsung

    • Patrick

      Samsung will not be releasing any Android 4.3 for samsung galaxy s2 only for galaxy s2 plus I’m sure of that 😀

  • Ioan

    I might be missing something here but I am facing a rather awkward problem. I have no google play installed, no google, no google plus, no gmail, no messenger. I haven’t been facing any of the problems reported above and I’d like to continue using this ROM but having none of the above is a deal breaker. Am I missing something? Perhaps I need to somehow flash the google things? (I only need the play store to be honest, I couldn’t care more for the rest, they’re junk if you ask me).

    • Ioan

      I also couldn’t set up a google account to sync all my contacts.

    • Rubic_Cube

      @Ioan:

      Did you install the gapps zip file after the ROM? If you do not install the gapps, you’re not going to get any of the Google features. Based on your description, I suggest you do a clean wipe of your phone and reinstall the ROM. Make sure you install both ROM and Gapps.

      Cheers,
      rubic_cube

      • Ioan

        Thanks. I wasn’t aware I needed to install an extra zip after installing the ROM. I take it gapps stands for google apps?
        Anyway I actually installed a different ROM to avoid the problems I have been hearing about this one. None the less, your suggestion was useful as this last ROM also didn’t have Google features so thank you for your time.

  • beelzebub.uk

    I had same problems with gallery not showing files and Facebook sync with contacts.
    I’ve fixed my problems by downloading quickpic and sync.me for free off Google play store.
    I love this ROM, it’s the same as my nexus 7 and got no bloatware on my phone. It’s the best ROM so far.

  • Sup’Man

    Gallery can be fixed by quickpic
    Thanks Helton

  • Looka

    Super Nexus is just a cheap copy from aways… original developer is Faryaab!
    aways is a bad developer , he makes just cheap roms , that aren’t much better than cyanogenmod’s one.
    I recommend only original SuperNexus and not a cheap making made by a bad developer.
    I am developer for many phones too and he wanted to ruined my rom making carrier on xda … i hate work made by him!

  • ATRX

  • thomas
