C-ROM for Galaxy S2! [Android 4.4.4/Floating Multi-Window]

c-rom-galaxys2-android4.4.4-floatingmultiwindow

For this week’s Galaxy S2 ROM of the Week, check out C-ROM, available for GT-i9100 and AT&T SGH-i777 users.

Based on latest Android 4.4.4, C-ROM brings you the blazing-fast Android 4.4.4 along with endless number of customization options (as shown in video overview).

With C-ROM, you can get two cameras working, the AOSP camera and Google Camera (install from Play Store after installing ROM).  Both work flawless so you should be happy in that department.

As for customization, C-ROM brings you plenty  to rant about including Power menu customization, Driving Mode, custom Animations, Shake Events, LCD Density changer, status bar customization, traffic monitor, lockscreen notifications, Active Display, 8 slider shortcuts for lockscreen, PIE Controls, App Circle Bar, App Bar, Omni Switch, Battery Saver mode, and even more stuff.

Best of all, you will be able to get full floating multi-window working on your Galaxy S2, which is actually another level up from Samsung’s multi-window implementation in my opinion.

Pretty good stuff I’d say so definitely give it a test drive this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

    After installing the highly touted CM11 Android 4.4.3 ROM, only to be very disappointed with it, I must confess I’m pretty reluctant to devote much time to installing many of these. Will however look forward to user feedback on this.

  • Hristo

    Hello. I flashed my Gt i9100 with this and there is that problem that occurred (it never happened on other roms) – apps can not be moved to sd card. It tells me that there is no available space in the SD card (but of course there is a lot).I wiped the cache partition and davlik with no result also I reflashed and again I couldn’t move my apps to the SD. Please Help 🙂

    I tested this phone for three days now, so far so good. Everything are open really fast and smooth. the only problem I found is when I use other themepack like Google L and particularly themepack LG G3 it always crash, hopefully it will gone in the near time. The looking good Google keyboard is a killer keyboard.

  • Additya

    Bad battery life everything else is fine…… Currently using apollo kernel regular 7.0b

  • vg

    Do not install this ROM on SGH-i777 (AT&T Galaxy S2) as I did. Here is list of issues I encountered so far after installing:
    1. Back physical button doesn’t work. It is really bad as you can’t exit from anywhere. You have to use Home button instead which for many apps work differently than Back.
    2. Search physical button doesn’t work
    3. Holding Home button to get list of previous apps doesn’t work.
    4. After I switched on Camera app the phone started buzzing like it can’t focus correctly. In video mode the zoom is stuck on high setting and you can’t change it
    5. Phone lost the talking feature. I can’t hear anybody who calls me. I can’t hear the voice mail prompts either. I can’t hear voice over Bluetooth either while playing music works through Bluetooth.
    6. Wi-Fi works on 2.4 GHz only. It can’t see 5 GHz WiFi networks any more.
    7. When I insert the phone into the charging dock the phone starts ringing like I got incoming call. Some sounds seems like messed up.

    So from this experience I assume that Max Lee do not thoroughly test ROMs before recommending them. He just briefly glance it and assumes that it will work. I will be more cautious next time. I need to fix bigger problem I got because of following this post recommending to install Shift Kernel: now my phone identifies itself as GT-i9100 and I can’t roll back to previous ROM I had.

    So if you own SGH-i777 then do not install C-ROM as recommended in this post. You will have many problems.

    • Tomas

      I think we all understand that you were not happy with this Rom.. from my personal experience with the S2 GTi9100 I sometimes have to install a Rom a few times before it installs without any bugs. I’m gonna give it a go, it can’t be that bad… 😛

  • Bruce Gordon

    tried to install it using the CMW KitKat compatible recovery module and got “script succeeded: result was [/system]” error. tried reloading a few times by Wiping Cache, Dalvik Cache and formating everything but to no avail. so will wait it out till a successful rom comes out with less issues.

  • Okanlawon Ridhwan

    The ROM has been installed and to be its better than CyanogenMod or others have ever used now the problem is connection to PC isn’t recognized and SD card not readable by Apps should there be a way around that. I’d pray for you
    Kudos

  • Tomas

    I’ve been using it for a week now. Everything works, battery life is somewhat undesirable 5 1\2 to 6 hours of heavy usage. I’m used to biftor Rom which has the best battery life in my experience. The only very annoying thing with this Rom is the fact that even though I disabled driving mode it still turns on and doesn’t let me use the phone when it’s synced with the BT in my car.

  • Petr

    I like the ROM, however I realized the SIM Tool Kit is not working. Is there any way to get it work?

  • Boris

    Hi,

    Is there any built-in capture screen option, like in some other ROMs?

    Thanks

  • Ananthu Rocky

    good rom i like it ..im always facing some problems they are ,..

    1, force closing apps
    2, camera glitch and suddnly force close
    3, floating window somewhat closes
    4, battery draining fast and needs more time to charge

  • Faridullah

    my galaxy s2 i9100 sometimes knows Sim card and sometimes it doesn’t, so if you know how to fix it so please tell me, What to do? I installed several roms but they didn’t work.

  • Indrajit

    I managed to find out the screen capture in C-Tool.

    Would want to find out the SAR value as it is done my *#07# in unrooted phones. Can anyone give a clue.

    Thanks and Regards

  • Carlos Lopez

    Es la mejor… he probado todos y ninguna como esta… he probado la ultima que se llama PACMan ROM for Galaxy S2 GT-i9100/SGH-i777! y es UN ASCO…

    Esta Rom es mejor… No pierdan su tiempo

  • Serkan Demirhan

    I guess the problem with the battery life is something about with the cpu….. its allways using it in top rate at 1200 mhz both cores….. you can check it in perofmance option in settings under the personalization tab…. but if you use a task manager program and kill all backround processes that are working and then reboot your phone and it turns to normal….. but sometimes after reboot you should check the perfomance again…. well at least that works for me….. I dont know, it looks like there are some tweaks need to be done from the creator of this rom….
    there are some little problems of course but in the whole its a good and entertaining rom…. just give it a try and if you dont like it you can allways return to your previous rom…. do backups of course 😉

  • Sharo

    Hi Guys,

    What do you say about the Torch app in this rom. Is that some kind of spyware? I already removed it however – I wanted to share this info with you.

    As overall – it is a good rom. Very snappy and have everything that I need – even beyond. The only issues that I have for now is the battery life – I still trying to overcome this…
