    Wow, I just upgraded to Resurrection Remix ICS 1.7 yesterday. yet you got one more new version. yeah i dont know when you uploaded the previous one.

    any how i am not able to connect Wifi in Resurrection Remix ICS 1.7 version. can you help me. its keep on saying obtaining IP, i was able to connect before with gingerbread 2.3.6 and once upgrading it to ICS i again revert back, it worked. please help me.

    or do you want me to upgrade to 1.8.1 now, do you think flashing twice would do the problem. I love to do these things but i need to reinstall all the apps, that is the problem.

    thanks a lot.

    • Josh

  • Luis Baquerizo

    Is a good rom but I have noticed that in this version of Aokp aftafteer trying different kernels like neak or abyss or dorimanx the rom becomes real unstable and it’s a shame. It’s not only on those rom because I have noticed the same issue in Hydrogen. So my guess it’s the Aokp base. So going back to slim rom that I believe it’s more stable than any of the Aokp roms

  • kevin

  • Max

    Hello,
    Thanks for the new ROM, BUT I have serious issues.
    I installed the new rom (ics resurrection 1.8.1) and now my phone is not working. Maybe I used the wrong procedure, probably cause I’m pretty much a noob at this… I installed it using odin through pda. The phone starts to boot and suddenly the screen goes black. It can go into download mode, but it will not boot at all.

    I tried flashing other roms (stock rom) and kernels but I still get the same result: black screen after the Samsung logo.

    Please helpme out on this.

    Thanks.

    • Lerato Ramatsui

      You need to root your phone and install from SD. Read instructions first in future. Download a stock rom and flash it, then go and read the instructions(guide)

  • andy

    i just upgraded to v.1.8.1 but after i have done it, it does not get connected to Kies anymore.

    it keeps showing “connecting”

    is there a solution?

    Thanks.

    • Dennis

      You can’t use KIES on custom firmware…..

      • andy

        i see,

        thanks dennis.

        if that’s the case, the call logs, messages etc etc, i can’t seem to find some way to put them back to the phone after installing v.1.8.1.

        is there a way to do a no wipe installation for this rom?

        thanks

        • steph

          Can use titanium backup

  • Kai

    Hi everybody

    Can anybody tell me, if this rom supports MHL to HDMI?. I have been trying every resurrection remix since their release and I have always had to return to v9.6 because it is the only one that seems to work with MHL. v9.6 is nice but buggy and not as stable as the later ones 🙁

    Any help would be really appreciated!

    Thanks for your replies!

  • Patrick

    1.8.1 is fast man! Awesome rom. I have one problem with Wifi though. I can see all my neighbours networks but mine. My wifes phone recognizes it normally.

    • Hazim

      Solution: Router Advanced Setting-> Advanced Wireless, wireless mode change to 802.11 n/g/b, bandwidth change to 20mhz

      I also facing the same problem, cannot detect my own wifi on my phone on this rom and my laptop (ubuntu), after some reading some bb,iphone and androids cannot detect 40Mhz of some router, so change to 20Mhz, works great for my phone and my laptop which using ubuntu and also wifi can reach greater distance..

      try it

  • Jean

    is there anyone who could help me with the mobile internet issue i’ve encounter?

  • Branwen

    Where can I set the Haptic feedback? (vibration intensity) It use to be under sound settings in Resurrection 1.2

    It was labelled “vibration intensity” and had a slide bar so you could adjust it. In 1.8.1, I only see an option to enable or disable vibrate on touch.

    Please confirm if this setting was moved under another option of if it has been removed altogether???

  • daniel

    hey i love this rom and everyting works exept messaging, i try to send a message and it just says unfortunately messaging has stoped working. plz help

    • Branwen

      Same problem here. Not able to send a sms. I’ve also noticed that if I try to send a sms I loose connection to my network until I manually delete the sms form the outbox. Once I delete it my connection is restored by with no 3g. I have to disable and enable 3g to get it working.

  • Corrytrevor

    I can confirm that cell reception and wifi reception are both improved over stock Gingerbread on my Virgin Mobile Canada Galaxy s2. In areas where I had 0 reception, I can now at least get a text message out. In areas of my house where I had barely any wifi reception, I can now stream movies.

    This is the best ROM for ICS on the Galaxy s2.

  • Lerato Ramatsui

    I used V1.7 and really loved the customization. I had a small problem which for me was a deal breaker, no fm radio! I like my morning FM news and I just couldn’t enjoy the phone without FM. Put back the FM radio option and I promise I will be your slave.

  • Ehab Mohamed

    The ROM is great however there are some applications missing as radio ??!! memos ??!!! and the task manager in addition to the motion option in settings ??!! is there any solution to these ?

  • Tusharpande29

    good rom….but i belive that resurrection remix v 1.0 is the best till now…this one has a few issues …some of which are…bluetooth not fumctioning…hav even tried using oder file explorers too..but still not working…also the file manager sux…the earlier file manager was too good..this one’s too complex to use when i am using my pendrive wid otg cable and i m wanting to tranfer stuff from it onto my phone…waiting eagerly for the next release for all these petty bugs fixed….

    For those of u having troubles like android keyboard not working and gapps reportedly crash…simply go to recovery mode( u may all know how to go there i assume!!!)….next simply remove all the data from the phone i.e. reset ur phone completely and then install this rom and flash the kernel if u want to for overclocking…but i didnt do tht…coz wen i did flash the siyah kernel .,….my phone simply got bricked…nd by god’s grace nd a lil bit brain use,,hehehe 😛 I got my phone bak to life…now running this version…greatt….good rom but more expected from next release till then …tc..:)…ya nd forgot to add aftr doing the above steps there will be no error whatsoever and also aftr u have removed everything the phone will start from scratch i.e. u will hav to setup everything which is good fr u i believe…**** and dont worry simply as when u reset ur phone from recovery nothing will be lost from phone’s internal memory…alll ur songs videos,etc will be there,…only the installed apps will be removed..but the apk’s that u will be having in downloads nd etc will also not get removed..so dnt worry…enjoy…:) nd simply chek if ur bluetooth is working or not…if yes then good fr u..but mine’s nt working…tc..:)…bt still luv the rom…:p :p…bye.:)

  • roberto

    Good rom, but I don’t like that it cant sync my facebook contacts/calendars. My power button flashlight also doesn’t work sometimes. The biggest problem that I have is that I cannot access my external SD card. The phone picks up all my songs, apk files etc., but theres no way to access them, not even when I plug my phone into my PC. Any help please?

    • steph

      I still can sync my facebook contacts. and you can acces to your external sd card with the folder named emmc

  • Bruno

    I’ve just installed it and so far it seems much better than my previous ROM (Resurrection 9.6).
    There’s one thing strange going on, GTalk has vanished.
    On my previous ROMs I had to install a Google app pack, but this one seemed to have all the apps out of the box, except Gtalk.
    Has anyone had the same problem??

  • Kuhne

    I installed this and I love it but I have an issue, BLN is the most important feature for me and the kernel in this rom doesnt support it. I installed siyah kernel and everything worked fine except the phone now can’t access the sdcard, not with the included file explorer or root explorer, it’s as if it isn’t there.

    Any idea how to fix this? Or which kernel to use that does support BLN?

    Thanks

  • richard

    hi peeps,

    after a lot of tries and updates to several Resurrection Remix roms i discovered that is all grappy and lagging a lot and a lot of things dont work, so my phone works the best on UltraToxic ROM 8.1 – Lite’ning Themed, the phone is verry stable and the kernel is overclockeble it is verry fast and its in my opinion the best rom ever made cos everything works and its easy to install compare to ics so i highly recommand that rom for daily use for everybody and w8 until the ics is getting stable cos its now not reliable enaught for daily use for now.
    here is a link where u can download it from: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1334124

    thnx max for ur time and good job but u forget to say anythings, like when u install the newest roms u deffinatly got to wipe dalvik cache cos if u dont u get a boot loop or dousnt instal is right, but after all a good job max thumbs up! 🙂

  • Kai

    I was wondering if Jese Rodriguez, as I see he is helping a lot of people, would also know if this rom supports MHL to HDMI. I would like to connect my phone to my tv and be able to watch internet live stream. Have you ever tried this?

    Thank you very much for your help!

    Seriously, does anyone have a workaround for the SDcard problem? After installing the siyah kernell my phone doesn’t access the sdcard anymore (tried with booth the included file explorer, astro file manager and root explorer) The phone detects the card fine but i cant access the files.

  • brunswick

    I installed this ROM for a buddy on his GS2. It makes me want my own GS2. This site is an absolute must for any GS2 owner. Found the simplest / clearest instructions here for Root, and Recovery. Everything went off without a hitch. The only thing I might add to the write up is in regards to APN settings. May want to let “noobs” know that they should copy down their apn settings before flashing so they can input them themselves post installation. Great job on the site and kudoo’s to the developers for a job well done on this ROM.

  • manley

    this rom is great, except one thing. ive import my contacs from vcf file on sdcard and after couple of days all my contacts disappeared. ive had to import them all over again. any ideas why?

    sorry for my english

  • Lars

    Great ROM.

    What I miss:
    – FM Radio (big time!!!)
    – Panorama in good quality – I think the panorama function in the ‘original’ camera app is better

    Keep up the good work !

    which im sure upto now you have not done ,,, forgive it this dont make sence ,,as i type this im HIGH ON CANA Er ANDROID ….,,

  • S2user

    Well here’s the thing, I love this ROM. It has so many features that I really love. It’s my first custom ROM since I upgraded to ICS and I think it looks and feels fantastic. But there are 2 “major” problems for my S2.

    1) low quadrant score (even if I’ve already overclocked it)
    From scoring 3800 to 4000 in Quadrant standard benchmark test while using the stock ICS 4.0 ROM, I got a score of 2800 to 2900 (overclocked). This bothers me a little bit, but since this ROM has some killer features in it, I was willing to overlook it. With this problem, I was ok to live with.

    2) Can’t read my external SD card
    Well for this problem, I can’t overlook. First of all, all my important files are in my external SD card. My internal SD is already full because of the games and images so I can’t just transfer my important files to my internal SD. I use these files all the time and I view them using my S2, so not being able to read my external SD card is not an option, and a problem I can’t ignore.

    Believe me, I’m a big fan of this ROM, but because of the 2nd problem, I just can’t seem to recommend it. I’ve already tried it twice, but it still has the same problems. I would really love to get some suggestions on how to fix these 2 problems ( A fix to the 2nd problem would be good enough) because for me, it is the best ROM out there.

    Thanks in advance!

    • Optimus Prime

      For your external SD Card problem,
      Get Astro File Manager,
      Open it and click manage my files,
      It should bring you to /mnt/sdcard,
      on the top bar click up,
      Then it will bring you to /mnt,
      Here, click on emmc, this is your external sd-card

  • Shrihari

    Someone please help me on this.. I can’t access my external sd card.. Theconnection mode is mass storage mode and still I’m not able to access in my PC

    • rison

      Hi,
      i cant find solution for this, in USB mass storage mode external SD dont mount in Windows XP (in win 7 too). MPT mode works in win 7, i can see and copy file from/to external and internal SD, but in windows xp MPT mode doesnt work (somewhere i read, that i must install windows media player 11) ill try it next time on father in law´s computer WXP (i have photos from old hdd backed up on external SD).
      I tried USM1.0.apk and Multi mount SD-Card Lite, but in WXP mounts only internal SD.

      ROM is pretty good customizable, have ICS blue look, some apps have not very good readable text on black backgroud. I had SensatioN ROM 3.4 ICS by Crysis21 before, but there was problem with freezing wifi connection. Turning on wifi sometime (50 %) halts with message in settings “Turning wifi on…”. After 2 minutes was sometime wifi alive and connected, sometime phone freeze).

      I had also problem with com google.process.gapps, i wiped dalvik and cache, but that process stops at startup. I cleared uder data/factory reset and no problem (only i have to install all apps again).

      Little issue was with CLIR, settings for Call are no more in settings menu, you must run application Phone and make CLIR setting there.

      And last, Clock app is very simplified, you can only show clock or set alarm. I like touchwiz clock – there is Alarm, World clock, Stopwatch and TIMER! (timer im using daily). Here is ported TW Clock apk http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1639750

      Hi,
      i cant find solution for this, in USB mass storage mode external SD dont mount in Windows XP (in win 7 too). MPT mode works in win 7, i can see and copy files from/to external and internal SD, but in windows xp MPT mode doesnt work (somewhere i read, that i must install windows media player 11) ill try it next time on father in law´s computer WXP (i have photos from old hdd backed up on external SD).
      I tried USM1.0.apk and Multi mount SD-Card Lite, but in WXP mounts only internal SD.

      I had also problem with com google.process.gapps, i wiped dalvik and cache, but that process stops at startup. I cleared uder data/factory reset and no problem (only i have to install all apps again).

      ROM is pretty good customizable, have ICS blue look, some apps have not very good readable text on black backgroud.

    I followed your instructions to install this ROM, but I only ever got as far as turning on the phone, it tells me loading, and the silver android comes up. Phone just seems to sit there.

    Left it for 20 minutes thinking maybe it was just configuring or something, but no joy. Eventually reinstalled my stock ROM.

    Have I missed something or done something wrong perhaps?

  • Just_AN_consumer!

    I have 3 Galaxy s2 devices 1 is mine and 2 others 4 Maintenance, i tried out this ROM and i love the way it is implemted, but i had an extream battery drain ONLY WITH WIFI ON, tried so many fixes, i thought maybe my SDcard and the External SD is the source of the problem so i tried on both other devices completely
    formated without any External SD and SIM card, and i have the same problem right after installation.

    Tracing out the problem, i found two processes sends a download requist every 2 sec. and a responce with a message “can not determine the size,giving up!” and the device was over heated! so the only thing that stopped these processes from doing that is to clear up there data and force stop, and clearly i could see the wifi indecator stopped transferring and the device cool down, tested the battery 3 days suspend and internet use for ~ 8 hours, and if i tried to download any thing the problem come up again!

    i tested the darkyrom hd ver 1 and i dont have such thing happening! strange right? i think its a kernel thing or maybe a deffected GAPPS needs to be revised

    im now on the stock ICS 4.0.3 rom and its extreamly stable!
    if a fix come out the i definitely coming back to ICS Resurrection ROM.

    Hi, please help! After I flashed this rom, I started to face issues with playing youtube videos over my mobile network. The videos play fine on wi-fi but whenever I switch to mobile network, the videos just get stuck on the loading screen. I’ve tried flashing various roms after this, such as the previous resurrection releases and other ICS roms on your site but all of them caused me to get the same error. I restored to my previous rom and youtube’s working fine again. is it just me or are other phones having the same issue? Please help!

  • Matt

    Using CM9 nightly 511 at the moment and found this so much more stable than Res or foxhound ! They review those shoddy roms but not CM9 which is so much more solid ? Go figure. Res kept crashing on me and foxhound way just cheap looking.

    I have installed the 1.8 version on my Galaxy SII as recommended here.
    Everything works fine, except downloading files through mobile data what is annoying me.
    There is a good chance that I have changed something in my settings, but I have no idea how to go back.
    I have tried almost everything related to mobile data configuration, without success.
    Anybody could help me with that?

    Cheers

  • Marcel

    First of all I would like to thank for the great job!!!

    I have installed the 1.8 version on my Galaxy SII as recommended here.
    Everything works fine, except downloading files through mobile data what is annoying me. I can browse and sync my mails, but when I click on a link to download something it does not work. The same occurs to google play, where I can browse the applications but when I want to install one of then, it is not possible to do on top of the 3G connection.
    There is a good chance that I have changed something in my settings, but I have no idea how to go back.

  • myd

    Should I first download official ROM and download 1.8.1 cause I have 1.0 and its gave me error when I flash it.

  • Kai

    Muchas gracias por tu ayuda Jese Rodriguez. Como puedo leer que también contestas en español, pues te escribo en español. Realmente haces una tarea titánica ayudando a tanta gente, y muchas veces repitiendo las sugerencias que ya habías hecho a personas que quizás no leen todos los “posts” y sólo piden ayuda directamente. Quizás se debería poner al inicio de todos los “posts”: “Please read all posts before asking because it is highly probable that you’ll find the answer to your problem” 🙂 De todas maneras. Muchas gracias Jese por tu paciencia.
    Te cuento que MHL funciona con este ROM con CM9, pero solamente para transmitir a tu TV con HDMI vídeos o fotos ya grabados en tu móvil. NO FUNCIONA en el caso de “live streaming” desde internet (a diferencia del antiguo ROM v9.6 que sí lo hacía), ya que en este caso lo único que muestra la pantalla de la televisión es una pantalla azul :-(… De todas formas. Todo lo demás está perfecto en este ROM. El v9.6 me parece un tanto inestable y definitivamente mucho menos personalizable que éste.
    Bueno, ya no te quito más tu tiempo. Hasta la próxima!

  • chris

    Hey,

    this rom is really really cool.

    but i have one fucking problem! i can´t send sms after updating this rom.
    If i want to send a message, the signal lost until i delete the “sending sms”.
    But i can receive sms with no problem. T- Mobile dont know why and said i should do an official samsung update.

    But now i go back to ressurrection 1.0 which is the best rom for me and the sms are already ok.

    please do some fixes or i dont know what.
    I want the version 1.8.1

    Please help me

  • dejay

    Hey nice rom, i have a problem with overclocking? i updated and flashed the kernel and installed the rom but when i go to the cpu speeds etc the max it will slide to is 1200 which is standard? anyone know what to do? also i cant add folders in the app drawer so i got like 30 apps all in a mess on the app drawer any way to make folders? Help please! 🙂

  • Maxim

    Just a quick question.
    If I’m using Resurrection Remix ics v1.7 now and want to update to v1.8.1. Do I follow the same steps as the first time with wipe data and all that or do I just install the new zip?

  • Amunarjoh

    Installed it, but hit problems right away.
    I have tried installing several times, with the same result.
    The touch sensitivity was very off. In some cases it was perfect, and other I had to hit over and over again to make it react. I’ve done all the wiping ahead, but still problem..
    The photo app was also weird. Taking a picture and changing to review last photo, the flash goes off. In some cases the app closed.
    Uninstalled.

  • csaez

    Jese veo que respondes en español, el unico problema que tengo con la rom es que no puedo enviar sms desde la aplicación nativa, actualmente uso handcent sms para suplir esto, pero me gustaría usar la app original, sabes como arreglar esto?
    Seguí un mensaje en que sugerías usar el fix de RR 1.1 y se congeló al inicio luego de aplicar el update, y al volver a gingerbread (con un backup) funcionan nuevamente los mensajes, asi que es algo de la rom.

    Gracias de antemano!

  • John

    I downloaded ROM Manager and installed CWM on my phone last night. On CWM, I followed the extended steps to install the ROM on my phone. These are:

    Reboot into recovery
    Wipe Data / Factory Reset
    Wipe Cache Partition
    Install the Main ROM
    In recovery go to Advanced
    Wipe Dalvik Cache
    Fix Permissions
    Wipe Cache Partition
    Reboot
    If at the first boot you can’t do the configuration of the google account, skip this step and continue
    When you boot into the system, it’s probably that you don’t have data enabled (3g, H+) just reboot
    When you boot again into the system the data will be enable and you can do the configuration of Google Account (if you don’t do this before)
    This is the moment for install all the extras like themes, fix’s, kernels, etc.

    I put the ROM file on my phone and installed the update through CWM by locating the file on my phone. I tried re-booting my phone and it started the BIOS start up and loaded the Android logo and then froze. I then tried installing Siyah through Odin (make sure the COM part is yellow whilst phone is plugged in in download mode, click PDA and select the Siyah file and then ‘start’). I re-booted my phone after this and still there was nothing.

    What am I missing? Any help would be massively appreciated.

    • John

      Also, the phone is rooted already.

      • Benedict Tan Shan-Wen

        John,

        As per the instructions of the ROM you should in order;
        1. Reboot into Recovery
        2. Wipe Data/Factory Reset
        3. Install the Main ROM
        4. Wipe Cache Partition
        5. Wipe Dalvik Cache
        6. Reboot

        On the FIRST boot your phone should stop at the silver robot during the boot animation for some time. Mine was 5 minutes, some people have experienced 20. Everything is fine, just watch some youtube and chillax 😉 It’s also the reason your phone should always charge your phone to at least 50% before installing a new ROM.

        My guess is that you aren’t giving the ROM enough time to configure.

  • Cosmin

    Do I have to root my Galaxy S2 before installing this ROM?

  • Palo

    Hi Max ,
    This rom is pretty good , bad I have problem with my external SD card.
    I have something there, but rom is telling me : your ext.sd card is empty, no file there .
    what can I do?

    thanks

    • Benedict Tan Shan-Wen

      This ROM doesn’t use the External_SD directory, it uses a directory called EMMC that points to your SD card.

      Their FAQ on XDA Developers has instructions to change it back if you want to.

  • chris

    can i load resurrection remix rom on my tmobile galaxy s2 or is it strictly for the i9 version.

  • Kuhne

    I used to have a preset key for the opera browser that had the “www” and also the “.com” I lost that when I installed this. Any ideas?

  • Mukul

    Installed this ROM.Just LOVING IT! Would recommend to many friends.During the boot I had a problem of the screen being frozen at the silver android logo for a VERY long time.It was more than 15-20 mins and my heart almost stopped beating as this was the first time I was rooting an android.lol.I have a query though.
    I loved how swipe over the contacts and messages used to call my contacts.How to activate that for this ROM?Or what other apps are there which I can install which would make the function usable again?Thanks.

  • shaju

    wats print screen key?

    • Benedict Tan Shan-Wen

      Volume Down + Power Button

  • Benedict Tan Shan-Wen

    Going from 1.1 to 1.8.1 I note that there are ups and downs.

    The Bad;
    1. No task manager. Rather annoying, Using ES Task Manager will have to do.
    2. Video recording at 720p and 1080p is noticeably choppier. Timelapse will force close the camera App.
    3. Stock note application removed and no note application of any sort included. If you switch to this ROM better preemptively backup your notes to a 3rd party app.
    4. This is a biggie, they changed the way that the external SD card paths. This means that a LOT of apps will be broken. BE WARNED! If your recovery app is sensitive to this then you may have trouble restoring your apps if you switch to this ROM. (Titanium Backup is supersafe.)
    5. Some of the AOKP settings may need a little coaxing to behave (toggling on and off until they get with the program.).

    The Good;
    1. Aesthetic improvements; The boot animation is no longer fugly, the Black Theme is also pretty sexy
    2. Very smooth and stable ROM overall!
    3. Where there were some rough spots before like the screen power off animation flashing it’s now near flawless.
    4. Relatively easy to get working just the way you like it.
    5. Having had the Rom for a little over 24 hours the battery life appears to be good. Whether it will match 1.1 which often gave me 2 days on a single charge time will tell.

    Anybody having issues with SMS or Email Vibration Notification? I can’t seem to get it to vibrate. Used to work with my stock Samsung 4.0.3, now it’s not working with this ROM. I even turn off Silent, and turn on Vibrate, but still no lock. It vibrates on an incoming call but not on a SMS or Email. Before it used to vibrate on Phone, SMS, or Email messages, and also notifies even when in lock mode.

    • Gautam R Kumar

      Open to messaging and go to settings, there u gotta enable vibration. Check it ^_^

    Superb ROM but,

    In the syiah kernel to deactivate the T9, without having to use some other sms apps to modify the settings, do as the following.
    1. Enter the message center
    2. write any message to someone, at the bottom near the space bar there is the MIC symbol
    3. if you press only once it starts recording voice commands, just long press that and an options windows will appear
    4. press android keyboard settings
    5. scroll down to autocorection
    6. press turn off autocorrection, Voile
    Happy texting, this is suposed to work on all syiah based roms/kernels
