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!
