CM11 ROM + OnePlus One Conversion Kit for Galaxy S2!

cm11-rom-oneplusone-conversionkit-galaxys2

For those of you looking to try out the new OnePlus One smartphone, did you know you can install CM11 ROM and our HighOnAndroid OnePlus One conversion kit on your Galaxy S2?

This combination essentially turns your Galaxy S2 into OnePlus One, you will get nearly all of OnePlus One software features like OnePlus One lockscreen, Hexo theme, OnePlus One camera, Voice Recording app, and Screencast app (allows you to record voice while recording screen but having some trouble getting working on SGH-T989, works fine on GT-i9100 and SGH-i777).

For GT-i9100 and SGH-i777 users, you will benefit from having a stable CM11 ROM Snapshot “M9”, which is very stable and fast.  (Everything should be working flawless out of the box.)

For T-Mobile SGH-T989 users, you won’t be able to get a stable Snapshot version (as CyanogenMod team has stopped releasing snapshots) but you can still get pretty good performance with unofficial version.

Overall, this is a fun way to spend your week(end) or free time and try out what’s on the OnePlus One so definitely give this combo a go this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

    Hi. I am using Amazing Rom DevDroid v1.2(based on CM10) because I read that they are so good at saving battery.

    • Cesar Belmonte

      Bryan, I had the same happen to me before. I just dont remember exactly how I managed to fix it. It was either a different USB cable, or a computer using Windows XP. Try each method and hope one of them helps. 🙂

    hi

    this rom are great install this rom on my gs2 tmobile but the camera apps dont work everytime i take a pic with flash phone reboots or shuts down …..great rom but i take alot of pictures just socks

    is there a solution for this issue

  • alias

    Hi…I have install it and smooth ….only thing that battery charging not work properly. Charging only when the phone is in power off.

  • the Cadman

    Cool rom. My issues are the same as ADV and alias, when taking a picture with flash, the phone shuts down and reboots and it doesn’t charge properly, sometimes not at all except when its shut down. Also is there an overclocking kernel that works with the rom? I’ve tried wild kernels 5,6, and 7 and they make the phone keep rebooting like every minute or sometimes stay in a boot loop till I just reinstall.

  • Eric

    Can any i777 users confirm everything works?

  • iii

    Was the camera flash issue solved?

  • Brett

    On the download page you have a nightly build for the t989 from 09/01/2014. Now that there are more recent nightly builds for the t989, can we update to a more recent build? Would that fix some of the issues maybe?

  • aditya

    This rom sucks!!!….drains battery heavily in my i9100……

  • David

    Does anyone else have a problem calling people? I’m using this rom on the Galaxy S2 for T-Mobile.

  • Ged

    The only other ROM I flashed is AOKP ROM with wild kernel. Became so unstable I wanted a new ROM but wanted to hold out n wait for One plus One contest. I tried the AOKP with uber kernel but I couldn’t even restore my user apps. Love my first CM for the T989. Less customization but its stable. Did anybody try the volume booster?. U download n then what?

  • thevinh

    This rom is very good , but when I install the rom finished , I heard the call or not to call , the other party can not hear speak , I speak just to hear the other side , off recall not hear anything else , restart the ok , but after the first time it again . please help me fix it

  • James

    Trying to install on i777, No luck. I’ve tried TWRP and CWM for install, both end with a Failed message. Error states that this ROM is for an i9100. Any ideas on why?

  • James

    For anyone else with the same problem, my solution was:

    1) Install shift kernel
    2) Reboot into recovery
    3) Install ROM, Reinstall Shift Kernel, Install GAPPs
    4) Enjoy or Complain, YMMV.

    Use this entirely at your own risk it worked for me, I don’t know how it will work for anyone else.

    • Man_Ram

      Thanks James. This really helped me out. Not just with this rom but other roms as well. The author never really tells us SGH-I777 users to install shift kernel 1st

      • James

        Glad it helped!

  • James

    After a day of testing with an I777 here are the problems I see with this ROM:

    1) USB not recognized for file transfer.
    2) Back light not working on capacitive keys.
    3) If you enable proximity sensors for screen wake you can not unlock your phone without forcing a reboot.
    4) Once oneplusone conversion is installed the standard CM slidelock screen no longer formats properly.
    5) Every time I use “OK google” to initiate a google voice search I receive an “Unfortunately, Google Search has stopped.” error. Voice search works fine otherwise.
    6) Occasional camera errors.

    On the plus side my battery life has improved dramatically from the ROM I was running before.

    All in all the ROM and conversion look great. Thanks for all of the work on getting these to us.

    One question though, Can does anyone know if I can install CM11 M11 over this without a complete factory reset? If not for the conversion I would have no fears of doing a direct install and reflashing the kernel afterwards. Not really sure what all the Conversion tampers with. Just curious to see if a few of my issues might clear up with a new release.

    Thanks again for all that is done to help me keep this S2 running!

    • James

      Just for the sake of having my solutions in one location for others with same/similar problems:

      1) I haven’t had any luck fixing this one
      -Probably the biggest issue I have, cant find a solution to this one. Anyone else?
      2) The app STweaks fixed for me
      -I had the same problem with resurrection remix a while back
      3) No luck here
      -Would love to hear from anybody with ideas
      4) Sure there is a way, I can’t find it

      5) As found on the internet
      1-disable OK Google from any screen
      2-reenable OK Google from any screen
      3-Retrain by saying “OK Google” three times exit the final screen with the home key, Don’t press
      “OK” or “Finished” don’t use the “back” key. Just press home. Not sure what this keeps from
      getting corrupted but it works like a charm.

      6) Looks like I will live with this one for the time being, it’s VERY infrequent anyway.

  • Wikus R

    Installed the ROM on my S2 9100.Worked fine till i installed the update to the latest release.Nowthe One Plusone theme is gone?

    • James

      Just out of curiosity, did just the them get taken out or the camera/screen recorder/etc?

  • lordrapheal

    Please can anyone here light up my darken side about this. Anytime I try to install this rom on my t989 it always give error dat {radio must be higher than my radio uvli4} then I tried to upgrade my radio to uvle1 but now it says radio must be higher than uvle1 problem please help me out

  • Vikram

    @james, could you pls explain how to enable backlight for capacitive keys using STweaks. I’d really appreciate it. Thanks.

    • James

      Allow superuser access, scroll to the right until you find BLN tab. Check mark next to BLN, BLNWW(saves battery). Set timeout. I also enable light on touch. That should do it. A reboot shouldn’t be necessary a I normally do one anyway. YMMV your own risk etc etc.

  • Sean Wong

    This may be asked before, but what’s the difference between CM11 snapshot and highonandroid.com oneplusone convert? Thx in advance.
