Batista FoxHound ICS ROM for Galaxy S2 i9100! [TouchWiz UX]

Batista Gingerbread ROM was probably one of the best custom ROMs when Galaxy S2 first came out last year. Well, I know there’s been a ton of new great ROMs out since then but let’s take a look at the latest updated Batista FoxHound ICS ROM for your Galaxy S2 i9100, still one of the best ROMs for your i9100.

The new “Sniper Wolf” version is fully stable and features cool things like TouchWiz UX, overclocking, and more.

For those of you who want TouchWiz UX (from Galaxy S3), great performance and battery life, give this ROM a go and let me know what you think!

    I’ve been trying to install this ROM, but keep facing problems. Wiping all there is to wipe, and reinstalling over and over again. Result is the same; Android process stops, and limps on. Impossible to make it run properly.
    Anybody else experiencing this?

    Because…i try fix the mms…i cant read my mms

  • daniel

    Go to extras and click on menu than click on configuration than click on extra settings than manage extra sever than click menue than click update featured extra server. You should get something that shows up in that list. Now go back to the main extras screen and click menu and check now. That should do it. I had to do the same thing.

      i did exactly the same and found the update download options. but it is just not downloading. its says download error. md5 verification failed.

  • Nick

    Sensational ROM but the following needs fixing then it will be kick ass….

    – Vibrate on touch throughout menu system would be awesome.
    -SMS and MMS text is still crappy. Better but needs work with better colouring system.
    – Text in search results for contacts is way too dark.

    Best rom but the text needs to be fixed… fix text and u got a hands down winner.

  • James Tan

    what files do i need to install from the foxhound file?

  • Zenar

    Is it more stable than the official one? Since i’ve installed the official android 4.0.3 some various apps started to crash and my s2 became slower when i’m doing some stuff like going through contacts. Oh and one more question does it retain the functionality of “slide right to call & slide left to message” of the original rom ? Thanks a lot
