Probably one of my favorite custom ROMs all-time, Biftor has now released V12 of his Biftor ROM for Galaxy S2 GT-i9100 and SGH-i777 users.

Packing Android 4.1.2 TouchWiz-based along with Jeboo kernel (that’s super fast), latest Biftor ROM is faster than ever, all the while bring you perfected Biftor ROM Control so you can control every detail of your Galaxy S2 down to the colors of your text on the status bar.

While many S2 ROM developers are moving away to Galaxy S3 or even S4, Biftor ROM has been continually developing for S2 users so you can enjoy the latest tweaks/features the open source developers bring you. That is one thing I really like about Biftor ROM, there are new releases at least once/twice a month.

With Biftor ROM, you will get a ton of lockscreens, shortcuts (like lockscreen Torch), full rotation for launcher/drawer, and more features than you can ever imagine. (Don’t forget to watch the video overview!)

If you are looking for the best Galaxy S2 ROM for your GT-i9100/SGH-i777, definitely give Biftor ROM a try this week(end) and do let me know!

  • Jamril

    Is this Rom and kernel, supports aircrack-ng and airmon-ng ????

  • Nick

    I have been using Aaliance Rom until now. I must say Biftor Rom is smooth, fast and not glitchy like Aaliance Rom. Navigon now works properly and a few seconds to pick up satellite. I recommend Biftor rom. It’s not loaded bloat wares either and it’s highly customisable.

    • Luis

      Asegurate de que el kernel sea para tu versión de android y tu modelo de teléfono , cuando ya tengas el recovery, instalas esta ROM, el módem y por ultimo jeboo. Este kernel es estable y biftor ROM es muy fluida y se puede personalizar como quieras.

  • Makesh

    I have followed the steps under (How to Install GT-i9100 ROM on AT&T Galaxy S2.), now i after I reboot the biftor rom boot logo keeps looping and doesn’t proceed further..

    I tried reinstalling ROM and as well but doesn’t work.

    Please provide some suggestion to troubleshoot this.


  • Marcelo

    I didn’t like its UI. Although developers did a good work on building this ROM, I can’t tell the same about the theme of its interface. It shows bad taste for colours (you get confused whether a feature is on or off) and buttons (Toggle and Check buttons are better on other ROMs). An interesting feature is that you can replace the battery icon (you have dozens of options to pick up). Showing your connection speed beside network signal is another cool feature as well. Customizing colours is possible, but it would be better if it had had themes to be chosen. About its performance, well . .. its UI didn’t keep me motivated to stay with this ROM more than a day. I’ve just moved to Paranoid.

  • slasher1986

    Biftor v14 is out : ) has anyone tested it?

  • marc

    TtHow come when u press the home you can’t multi task ? And no camera will work when I make the 4

  • Arturo

    will this work for gt-i9100, JB 4.1.2,
    I am from Mexico.

  • Celes

    This is an awesome rom, performance wise and battery life wise.. both are great, but it keeps hanging all of a sudden (randomly more specifically said) while texting, whatsapp, in settings, navigating. Occurs few times a week.. kinda irritating while in a hurry :/
    any suggestions pls???

  • Daniel

    El multitask no funciona con esta room en mi s2 gt-i9100, dejo pulsado el boton central y me aparece la pantalla de todas las tareas abiertas pero al intentar accesar en algunas de las abiertas me regresa a la pantalla de inicio, alguien me puede decir como lo puedo arreglar?

  • Stefan

    Best rom I ever had. I did tried lots of roms, but this one have also very good battery life. Thank you!

    • Richie

      The V12 ROM crashes alot especially with UI system error force close. I installed the ROM several times but the same error occurs. I installed Biftor V14 and the problems were solved. Its much more stable. The only problem now is that the battery drains twice as fast as stock ROM but only when the screen is on.
      I like Biftor, it is super fast. I hope they make a new version to address the battery.

  • Inigo

    No me aparecen las notificaciones por ejemplo de whatsaap. Alguna solucion?

  • ronit

    i have just rooted my s2 gt i9100 …. now i want to install this rom but i dont know how to do it…i have currently 4.1.2 and baseband version i9100pxxls8 and jeboo kernel installed as shown in root tutorial…. can i flash this rom? how? can you send me links on it… plz reply…

    • Richie

      This guy explains everything:

      I just installed it on my Galaxy S2 I9100. Works fast and stable. It does not include the samsung bloatware. The advanced setting on in the Biftor control panel does not work – not a problem, its just for customization.
      There is a Biftor V14 but I do not know how stable it is.
