Hazy ROM for Galaxy S2 GT-i9100! [Android 5.0.2 Lollipop]

hazyrom-galaxys2-gti9100

Here’s a quick update on the best Android 5.0.2 Lollipop ROM for your Galaxy S2 GT-i9100.

For this week, check out the Hazy ROM by XDA user sooti, it’s an Android 5.0.2 Lollipop ROM with almost everything working out of the box except Netflix.

You will find everything including data, WiFi, bluetooth, camera, GPS, camcorder (1080P video recording, it actually comes with KitKat camera), and a bit more customization than CM12.

Netflix is still on-going work in progress and many Lollipop ROMs don’t support it but if you don’t use it then I do certainly recommend Hazy ROM as daily driver.

Other than that, you will get great performance and fair battery life out of Hazy ROM.  Also, I did notice the battery stats being off at some times so use a battery calibrating app to fix this issue.

Overall, Hazy ROM isn’t perfect but it’s going to give you the best Lollipop experience on the GT-i9100 (as of this post) so definitely give it a test drive this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

Download:

Download Hazy ROM for Galaxy S2 GT-i9100 (the version I used in video, check here for latest version)

Download Android 5.0 Lollipop Gapps (Get the pico version!!!)

 For installation, please follow How to Install Android 4.4 KitKat ROM on Galaxy S2!

To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps, install SuperSU 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.)

Q: The ROM is not booting!
A: Try formatting /system and re-install ROM, sometimes the system partition gets corrupt and you may have to try 2 or 3 times before the ROM boots.

    Hey, i love this ROM, everything works great, except the only problem i’ve got is that it doesn’t recognize the network, so i can’t use the phone!
    The baseband is the same i had before, and when i returned to the backup i had made, everything worked as before.
    So i tried ROMing back again, and still doesn’t recognize the network.
    Any ideas???
    Thnx so much!

    Tried the first version of lollipop Resurrection Remix CM12 5.0.2 and hardly anything worked, tried version 5.1.1 and it wasn’t much better. Tried Hazy Rom 4.0 Alpha 2 and haven’t found anything yet, except Farcebook dropping out all the time. This is a top notch daily driver, even with its small bugs. A Top Shelf Developer. Glenn

    I bought my S2 the day it was released here in Sydney, AU. Since then I have bamboozled my friends with my S2 compared to their latest devices. However I have been stuck with Jelly Bean (lazy, too busy etc.) and was left behind, but now WOO HOO! Lollipop, kicks their ass again! Thank you. For those that are going from a really old version, I had to first install CWM 4.0.1.5 the WITHOUT rebooting installed 6.0.4.5 higher, then reboot and carry on as above! Good Luck and thanks everyone. V

    Hi all, I don’t know if you’ve noticed it already. The front camera, when you try to take a photo, it suddenly freezes. Any fix for this one? Overall, the ROM is magnificent! Thanks a bunch. Just bump this thread regarding camera issue, I would appreciate the reply!
