For this week’s ROM of the week for Galaxy S2 GT-i9100, SGH-i777, and SGH-T989, check out CM11 ROM.

Galaxy S2 GT-i9100

For GT-i9100, check out CyanFox ROM, built on CM11 and everything working out of the box including calls, data, camera, camcorder, video, sensors, wifi, gps, etc… I do recommend trying this build out as daily driver since everything is working and you should find a pleasant Android 4.4 KitKat experience.

Download:

Download CM11 CyanFox ROM with Android 4.4 KitKat for Galaxy S2 GT-i9100

Download CyanROM Android 4.4 Gapps (do not use other Gapps you will FC!)

Please follow How to Install Android 4.4 KitKat ROM on Galaxy S2!

AT&T Galaxy S2 SGH-i777

For AT&T Galaxy S2 SGH-i777, check out ported version of CM11. This build is pretty solid except video camcorder is not working and also battery stats are broken. But if you don’t take lots of videos (but still camera works) and you don’t mind the broken battery stats, you may be able to use/test it as daily driver.

Download:

Download CM11 ROM with Android 4.4 KitKat for AT&T Galaxy S2 SGH-i777

Download Gapps for Android 4.4 (do not use older Gapps you will FC!)

Please follow How to Install Android 4.4 KitKat ROM on Galaxy S2!

T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989

For T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989, check out CM11 ROM. This build is much more stable than the BeanStalk ROM with Android 4.4 we featured last week (absolutely no FCs) but it does have a broken camcorder(still camera works fine). If you don’t mind the broken camcorder, you can also use this as a daily driver.

Download:

Download CM11 ROM with Android 4.4 KitKat for T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989

Download Gapps for Android 4.4 (do not use older Gapps you will FC!)

BEFORE INSTALLING, UPGRADE your CWM Recovery to latest version by downloading the zip and installing with your CWM recovery:

Download and install CWM Recovery 6.0.4.3 for KitKat custom ROMs

To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps, and reboot.   (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop, reboot into recovery, go to Advanced Wipe for TWRP or Mounts &Storage for CWM, format/wipe /system, then re-install ROM.)

Overall, Android 4.4 KitKat custom ROMs for Galaxy S2 ROMs are coming really close to being bug-free, especially considering the GT-i9100 essentially has a bug-free ROM like CyanFox ROM. At the worst, you can always make a backup ROM of your current ROM, try out the ROM, then revert back.

So, definitely give CM11 ROM a go this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

    • RubenQ

      Hi mike!.. Please, can you tell me how can I revert back to a different ROM, I’d like Carbon or AOKP, but when I try to flash those ROMs or other kernels like Siyah or Jeboo, the system shows me a “Failed” message.

      I got now OMNI Rom with the CWM recovery v6.0.4 and it seems doesn’t support to flash a different ROM.

      Please HELP! tell me how you did that!… And thanks a lot!

    • paijow

      yes..is also cant detect my external sd card but if we used file explorer, the card is there but not in the right path

      • Jed

        try taking out your SD card and formatting it on your PC.format it in fat32

        • Nav

          This will work however the concern is, not able to find the apps backedup using Titanium Backup as it does not detect the external sd card.

    • Ahmad

      I also have the same problem, I try to get a path to the external SD to restore from the backup that I did lately but there is just the internal SD.
      I saw in the security settings that the memory that used is just the system memory, but can’t change it.
      Please help

      • paijow

        yes please help

  • Rubic_Cube

    Used the Carbon 4.3.1 ROM until 3-4 days back and used MIUI V5 for 1-2 days just to get a taste of what everybody is raving about… and now, finally getting a taste of 4.4 on my SGH-i777!
    – Battery status would not display. Every time I disconnect from the charger, the phone warns me that there is very little power left. Like DD said, I see -1061820012% in the battery status. Also, because there is no assurance for battery status, I fear using this ROM as a daily driver.
    – Camera works ok as long as I do not switch it to Camcorder mode. In Camcorder mode, recording sfarts.. but app FCs when you stop recording. No recording is actually saved. Other than these 2 peeves, I guess it looks pretty good. I would like some option where I can configure status bar like displaying battery % etc.

  • Rubic_Cube

    @Max – any reports on OmniROM?

  • AJ

    Video recording not working when I use the stock camera.apk and also all other camera apks. on t989

  • Shane

    It works ok so far on my t989, as we all know some features don’t work. the only problem so far is the video cam. other wise it stable. am in Jamaica so some of the features doesn’t work here but the ROM is nice.

  • CADman

    Flashed the new cm11 kitkat on my t989. No problems at all. runs really smooth. everything seems to work except I don’t have screen capture. But other than that it works great. Good job guys.

  • CADman

    Just noticed my video doesn’t work. Camera works great. When I switch to video, it changes but when I press the button to begin recording I get nothing.

  • buchi

    Lol….so many unstable comment. …Patiently waiting for update on stable Kitkat

  • Tony

    Massive battery hog on t989. Free falls to 50% in less than an hour just checking mail/twitter etc.

    • Mikel

      I agree.I can’t even run my Comodo battery saver app. It starts up and displays the icon on the notification window but when trying to open the app to adjust the settings it FC’s. Anybody know of a good battery saving app that works on the T989.?

    • Rob

  • Xavier

    Got some colors on the kitkat statusbar icon.

    Running the latest cm-11-20131128-UNOFFICIAL-hercules build with CWM 6.0.4.3
    new build has the correct kitkat dialer icon and more customization options.

    Battery icon is the only icon that doesn’t want to change color.

    i used

    XposedInstaller_2.4-beta1.apk with Xblast tools for above Android 4.0.3+ module

    It also gave me the ram bar, kill button, dark halo background and i was able to change the clock font.

    i was able to change the boot animation using ROM TOOL BOX apk

    I have successfully installed the CM11 Kitkat ROM…its good and working but my Wifi is not working in sense it is not detecting or searching. So unable to use WiFi. Please help.

    • Xavier

      Do a full wipe and re-install the rom. That might help.

      • Alaa

        how could I make full wipe??

        • Xavier

          go to Advanced Wipe for TWRP or Mounts &Storage for CWM, format/wipe /system, then re-install ROM

          • Alaa

            i THINK THE PROBLEM IS WITH ROUTER WIRELESS SETTINGS SUCH( COUNTRY CHANNEL…ETC)

            PLEASE CAN YOU SCREENSHOT THE SETTING FROM YOUR WIRELESS ROUTER AND UPLOAD IT, AND GIVE ME A LINK FOR IT

            • Xavier

              Are you at least getting your wireless router on your wifi list.

              • Alaa

                no…

                in OMNI ROOM we have the same problem but there (in OMNI ROOM) we have a choose with country channel for wifi …and when I select USA this problem get solved

                but in this ROOM we do have this choices….so I may can change setting in the router

    • Hanz85

      If u had tried to activate wireless display, the WiFi would not work after that and the option to turn wireless display off greys out.. got to wipe and re install the ROM will be the only option i can think off unless we had an option of reset the setting part.(which i think we don’t)

  • Xavier

  • tomas

    Running it for the Second day. One charge is lasting me 14 hours give or take a few hours depending on how much I use it. My only problem is the WiFi. The first day it was fine I reset the phone once and now the WiFi is stuck on activation…. I’m going to try to reinstall it and back up just in case.

    • Tomas

      Just an update. I’ve been running this ROM for 9 days now. I resolved the wifi problem by reinstalling the rom with no wipes, and it fixed the issue but took away my awesome battery life. One charge now will last me about 7-8 hours depending on the use. Camera camcorder and everything else works great. I’m going to test my luck one more time and reinstall it once more just to see if I can get that boost back to the battery.

      • Shane

        how to you get the camcorder to work on this?

  • sandesh

    Installed it on i9100 and then phone is stuck on samsung logo! How do i get it working?

  • Mikel

    I have been running this on my SGH-T989 for about 2 days and
    there were a few minor issues that I noticed.
    1. Camcorder not working
    2. Netflix not working
    3. Google Play Music App music plays choppy, all other apps play mp3’s fine
    4. MX player FC upon trying to play a video.
    5. also hangs up a bit when coming from sleep mode

    Coming from the Beanstalk 4.3 ROM I kind of miss some of the customizations,
    however this is a great ROM to use for a daily driver.

    • Cory

      the hang when coming from sleep annoys me….i had the same issue in cm 10.1

    • Rob

      Any solutions to Netflix on the SGH-t989?

  • poppiesgdd

    Nice ROM , but still a bit bland yet.
    We can’t have everything at once, or there
    wouldn’t be anything to look forward to .
    Adding pages is an absolute pain compared
    to jellybean , and around 40% of the apps I
    use don’t work at all yet , or only partially.
    My biggest gripe is the number pad for the
    phone dialing is too small for someone with
    large fingers as it’s too easy to touch the key
    above or below the one you are trying to touch.
    This would take up extra time in an emergency.
    This is one time where bigger is better without
    an argument from males or females .
    Good job by the developer to have a ROM this
    good with nearly everything working this early.
    I will be using this ROM as a daily driver, with its
    few bugs until its next iteration comes out .
    Hopefully someone listens about the number pad.
    Glenn.

  • Alaa

    this ROM has many bugs, can I go back and install 4.1.2 ROM???

    • Jack

      Yeah there shouldent be any problem with it, just make sure to wipe data/factory reset. And if it gets stuck go to Advanced Wipe for TWRP or Mounts &Storage for CWM, format/wipe /system, then re-install ROM.

    Alright i was wondering if anyone could help me install viper4android on my T-Mobile Gs2. I follow the video max posted on it but when i get to the Buildprop editor i cant find lpa.use-stagefright, or tunnel.decode. Lpa.decode is the only one of the 3 i can find. Also i can’t seem to find where in the music setting you change the default music effects selection on this rom either? I really need some help!

    • Blake

      Hey jake i had the same issue but i didnt worry about changing settings in bulidprop cause i have a different music player than the stock one if you have next, Apollo or something different than stock music player you shouldnt have to worry about that as far as setting start the music player go to the settings in the music player chose equalizer from there you should be able to choose viper i also went ahead and froze the other music effects with titanium backup so viper is the only effects available. Hope this helps

  • v10

    any info on how to get proper path to the extSDcard working? format does not work stuck with the problem. also i cant seem to find a way to install another rom now . when i try to flash Kernel_Siyah-Dorimanx-V8.20-[16-06]-[20-05]-JB-SGII-PWR-CORE to instal another rom it doesn’t install at all.

    • v10

      Used Odin to flash Kernel and installed another rom.

  • sandeep

    For the issue : INVALID PATH TO “EXTERNAL SD”
    Install : “ASTRO FILE MANAGER”.
    even i faced this issue on default ‘file manager’ and ‘es file explorer’ ….but u can access external sd files on astro file manager. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • Jochen K.

      This won’t help as Titanium Backup stores its files on the external SD, and it DOESN’T recognize the card – I think.
      For the time being I reverted to Alliance ROM 9.0 and Jelly Bean 4.1.2 – and shall wait until there is a rather more complete version of a KitKat ROM to be had.

  • Joe

      I do have my working sim on the one that worked and there is no sim on the other s2. Don’t know if that’s the reason. Anybody know why?

    PLEASE HELP…PLEASE HELP….I AM USING THE INTERNATIONAL VERSION I9100

    • Xavier

      You might also want to reflash your radio. Afterward do a wipe cache partition and then go into adnanced menu and do a wipe dalvik cache and it wouldn’t hurt to do a factory reset after all that. Doing this steps after installing any rom might also help to eliminate errors.

  • Sarinas

    Hi, I just installed this rom on my i9100 and it’s missing the SU binary.. It says that it needs to be rooted manually. Will Jeboo kernel for Jellybean work? Or maybe the SU 0.99?
    I can’t find any standalone 4.4 kernel for this. 🙁

  • Cory

    Anyone has a fix for the hang when the phone coming out of sleep mode as yet

    • Tengs

      I went into performance and changed the minimum CPU frequency from 384 to 594, left it on interactive tho.it lags on unlock very rarely for me now. Maybe upping it one more will remove the lag completely. Hopefully this helps. Seems like a lot of people are having the lag issue

  • ChrisMor

      Hi can anyone help me with this problem thanks.

  • Rich

    I just downloaded the Kit Kat CM-11 rom for I777. The file name includes the word “Infected” in it. Should I be worried. I have not installed yet.

    Thanx in advance, Rich

    • Tengs

      No the file is good. As long as you used the link in this post.

  • Pratima

    I am not a geek, but simply followed the instructions to download and Voila, I got the updated version. Was using Slimbean (4.3.2) and i must say that this is better than slimbean. I had really small fonts there and I have no complaints here. All my app works fine. Kudos to the development team. Love you guys.

    Kindly help as I am not too good with this stuff.

  • Vishal

    For developers option just click on build number under setting–>about.. May be this will work… 🙂

    • Tomas

      THANK YOU!!! I’ve been so pissed off that I couldn’t find the dev options!

  • trent

    this is pretty good. No issues other than missing features from 4.3.1 >4 stars.

  • Niks

    Post install I still have below issues… appreciate if someone can direct me to correct info:
    1. Phone goes into deep sleep but does not come out of it. Read somewhere that min CPU speed should be set to 384 – but for me the option to set CPU speed is disabled
    2. Very fast battery drain

    Also, are there any other kernels available? like dorimanX etc? would like to deploy.

    • Niks

      One more problem just observed – Can’t move any app to SD. Looks like its moving the app but suddenly comes the response that ‘Couldn’t move app’. Any debugging steps?

  • pasutra

    how to enable google now slide? and how to enable “ok google”? sorry for my bad english

  • Ken

    have gingerbread 2.3.6 can i directly upgrade to this ROM?
    Do i need to change the kernel or not?

    • Vishal

      You can change it directly no need to change kernel just flash it..

      • Vishal

        Edit : you can upgrade directly no need to change kernel. just flash above rom and gapps

        • Ken

          Thanks for the very very quick reply. I’ve been looking for this answer for some time before I upgrade. But it is implied but not specifically said anywhere that I’ve seen in any forum or site.

          One last question and i think i’ll be ready. my phone is rooted and unlocked presently.

          After upgrading the ROM does the phone remain rooted and/or unlocked?
          If it needs to be rooted again. Does the method for rooting a 2.3.6 GB also work for a 4.x.x? Or do i need to find a specifix 4.x.x root method? Thx

          • nido

            Yes it will remain unlocked. By default SupserUser is not installed so you need to installed by yourself and it will again rooted.
            hope this would be the answer you are looking for.

  • Tengs

    It will stay rooted, also I’m not positive but you may need to update your radio b4 flashing to a 4.x.x rom if your coming from stock gb for the first time.

  • Vishal

    Oh ya… You have to upgrade radio to UVMC6 for any 4.x.x base rom…

    Here is link of UVMC6 radio :

  • David

    I now have a issue, I can not get pass the system pin. I can get pass the Sim card pin which is the same as my system pin, no matter what I do, it will not let me in. to make matters worst I can not get into recovery anymore.

  • Roler

    go ahead! try changing the dalvik to art I dare you!
    lol sorry but I don’t approve this. back to cyanogenmod.

  • arpit mishra

    sir, ryt nw m using omni kitkat rom in my galaxy s2 i9100. i want to downgrade kitkat to original samsung ics rom. pls help me out.
    thankyou

  • Amit

    Is it stable enough for my daily driver i9100?? Looking for a custom ROM (4.3 or 4.4) to upgrade to from present samsung stock 4.1.2 for better performance and battery life.

  • Rishabh

    Using this rom about two days
    there are a few bugs.

    1. after disconnecting calls the screen freezes. And u have to press the home button every time to get into action
    2. No FM radio
    3.Camera quality has been degraded, It seems like as if it has been zoomed to 4X
    4.Some apps not able to install like-subway surfer.
    5.Youtube video playback shows a whole lot of pixelation even in HQ quality

    • Shane

      how’s the video camera on this ROM ?

  • Peter

    I try to delete some apps with Titanium Backup but it doesnt work. I have tried other apps that delete bloatware but still doesnt work. The files are still in the app drawer and running.
    Anyone else has the same issue?
    Is it a compatibility problem between ROM and Titanium Backup?

    • Peter

      EDIT:
      Cant move apps to SD either!!
      What could be going wrong?

  • aliioosh

    Keeps telling me ” Unfortunately the process com.android.phone has stopped” and after i tap ok it pops up again

    what should i do i already flashed the rom again and same thing happened

    • Rich

      Have you tried re-flashing the modem?

      • aliioosh

        yes several times

  • brennon

    i tried installing the rom and i keep getting a error saying “ERROR: Radio must be newer than UVMC6” any help on this?

    • Swift

      I had the same error. Installed the new radio UVMC6 and the ROM works. Replied you with the link but my post keeps getting deleted.

      • brennon

        How would I go about installing a new radio UVMC6?

        • Swift

          Just GOOG it. You will find the instructions. It’s a zip file and you boot into recovery and flash the radio like you flash a ROM.

  • Rojo

    Nice and fast rom everything works fine….Only thing that annoying me is I can’t access the external sd card….

    • Jochen K.

      No access to the SD card, but everything works fine?

      Very amusing 😉

      • Rojo

        Yes Jochen everything except the access to sd so far but I flashed it back to the stock rom

    • Tengs

      Download file manager from the play store and remove the preloaded file manager using titanium back up. Seems to only be an issue on a couple of the file browsers.

      • Jochen K.

        Are you sure?
        I took a look at this ROM and quickly reverted to my old Alliance ROM because of this very problem – Titanium Backup couldn’t find the SD card either, and as it backs up to that card, I couldn’t use it to restore anything.

        • Tengs

          Have you tried the newest release? I’m on a t989 too not sure which s2 your using. I use tb every time I update it with no problem. I had the same issue at first but I installed file manager and updated at the same time so I’m not sure which solved it

          • J.K.

            I used the link provided by Max the day before yesterday.

            Trying out Custom ROMs and reverting to my old setup is always a major hassle for me, so I’ll definitely wait a week or two before I try again.

            (The hassle stems from the fact that I’ve got LOTS of apps and most are on the SD card; when I re-install the Nandroid backup of my configuration, the apps on card are always listed as “uninstalled” and have to be re-installed/moved to card one by one.)

            • Tengs

              The newest download is cm-11.20132312-hercules-nightly. I just double checked to make sure and tb worked 100 percent. I erased my apps and restored them with it. And created a second back up with it on my SD card. The issue might of been solved or you might had a bad flash when you flashed it. Know what you mean tho trying new roms sucks for me to work all the apps I have too. Maybe someone else that has the updated version can test out tb to double check.

              • Jochen K.

                Thanks – from Christmas to New Year I’ll be on vacation ; I should find the time to try again then.

  • Shane

    I’m using cm-11,20132412-hercules-nightly after upgrading from an earlier nightly. I must say I found the nightlies to work much better only thing is the camcorder but I used other third party

  • Rick Ramo

    I wonder why I never see anything much about or for the SGH-i727 Galaxy S2 Skyrocket ATT 4g phone?

  • Chris

    How do you download themes for this? 🙂

    And yeah.. awesome ROM 🙂

    • Chris

      I have a problem it says “sim network unlock pin” how do you fix this? Please help 🙁

  • Hugo Diaz

    A few days ago, I installed the CyanFox version on my Galaxy S2 i9100, but lost root so I reverted to my Carbon ROM.
    Today I installed CyanFox 4.4.2 again, but this time I did it correctly.
    Everything is working fine, video works, root is working, Titanium works and finds everything in the SD card, and it has a better battery life than Carbon.
    Only thing I miss is network speed and change colors in the Status bar.
    This is now my daily driver.

  • Rich

    Can I install CM11 using TWRP which is already on my phone or do I need to install CWM first?

    • Jochen K.

      Is your TWRP ready for KitKat?
      If you aren’t sure, better err on the side of safety .

      • Jochen K.

        By googling “twrp kitkat i9100” I foud a thread with the claim that TWRP 2.6.1 works.
        So – over to you 😉

        • Jochen K.

          Keep us informed, please – personally I prefer TWRP to cwm.

  • Vineet

    i am having problem after installing the gapps can u guys guide me what could be the reason that after installing gapps my phone is giving errors and not switching on

    • Jochen K.

      Can be many things – usually cured by a complete wipe / complete re-install of ROM and Gapps.

  • Tushar Kumar

    Hi,

    I have installed this ROM for my S2 i9100.Whenever i try to download applications from Playstore,it doesn’t download,there is always an error.

    There’s this thing called cell broadcast or News alert which keeps on coming.How do i remove it?

    And how do i download apps from playstore.Please help

    Thanks

  • Hugo Diaz

    A few days ago the ROM asked for permission to download an update.
    I updated to 2.0.2 and now I have network traffic on the status bar. Yessss!
    Everything still works fine. I recommend it highly.
    The problems I had the first time I installed it were caused by me, not doing things correctly.
    Just wipe everything. Do a clean install. When I did this the second time, everything worked fine: SD card, WiFi, video camera, Titanium back up, everything…

  • Reddie

    Hi..i would like to ask..can i install this roms to my Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100T Australia Vodafone?
    and which one the link?
    thanks..

    • Jochen K.

      I think the best thing for you to do is Search for your device on the Cyanogen web site.

      • Reddie

        Hi…thank for your reply..
        But,i have go to Cyanogenmod website,in the website i just found Galaxy SII (AT&T)/i777 and Galaxy SII (international)/i9100.
        So,which one i must choose for download?
        Thanks a lot for your reply before..

        • Jochen K.

          Out of hand, it sounds as if your device is not supported at all by CM – surely the “T” must mean that it’s in some way a separate device, and if doing a Search on the CM web site didn’t find it… 🙁

  • rekamyenoM

    Cant Change APN’s or delete them….

    Any one else with this issue?

  • JS-Essex

    Been using this for a few weeks and out of the 3 kitkat roms this is the best one I’ve used…..its simple, everything works, it doesn’t crash and does a good job….. Only problems are finding a decent launcher as I liked Samsung’s Touchwiz…… I liked Samsung’s Radio app, Contacts app, Dailer App, Message App and Calender app.

  • Kalahari Harry

    Guys…. Ive been using this rom… Its fast on my Galaxy S 2. But call recording function does not work… Ive heard google removed it???? Any patches or updates?

    Thanks again

  • ja son

    Using T989. Experienced rooter/flasher. CyanogenMod has let me down again. Camcorder still not working since CM10. WiFi worked for about 60 minutes before out would not detect any signal. ROM installed completely trouble-free the first time: upgraded to latest CWM, factory reset, wipe cache partition, wiped dalvik cache, installed ROM, installed gapps, rebooted. No hang, no bootloop, no glitches. Let it sit while Google updated via “restore from my phone from my account.” All looked well. After sitting for a while, will not connect to Wi-Fi. Tried camcorder, failed (as expected, however). I love the aesthetics of CM ROMS, just wish I could get one that worked properly. Switched back to JMT.

  • Mak

    Gallery Problem in SGH T-989 , when try to open Gallery mobile gets restart..if any solution then please tell me..

  • DJ

    Hi,

    all is good except for the fact that I backed up my contacts/messages using Kies and now I cannot connect my Galaxy S2 to the PC. Better yet, I cannot use Kies.
    Kies does not recognize custom ROM and now I cannot restore my contacts. Any suggestions to solve this problem?

    For example, what other app can use backups made by Kies?

    Thanks!

  • Techies Net

    I tried installing cm 11 on my samsung s2 gt i-9100 but after rebooting it says unfortunately, themes provider has stopped, sec.com.android.phone has stopped, etc.
    I have tried factory reset and wipe cache and dalvik cache but to no avail.
    Please help. Thanks!

    • Jochen K.

      Did restoring your previous ROM from your Nandroid backup work, or did that fail as well?

      • Jochen K.

        …and did the zip of the new ROM have the correct checksum?

  • jed

    cant tether my t989 s2 never had this problem before with other roms, CM11
    any help out there.

    thanks

  • Monkeysteve1978

    When I go to the links none of them download the actual files. All the links just redirect me to other programs that I dont wnat.

  • Lorena

    After installing the CM11 Kit Kat Rom (CyanFox s.0.2), everything seems to work ok, however, I do not see default music player, instead I have an Apollo application. I cannot see the Debugging option which is usually found in Developer’s mode. Would anybody tell me how to access to it? Thank you!

  • Ruchira

    Does Anyone know a Compatible Kernel for 4.4.2 CM 11?

    I was wondering if I could use Siyah kernel as well as using this CyanogenMod as I don’t want to have to reinstall CyanogenMod and reset my phone again.
