Resurrection Remix ICS ROM v.1.9.1 for Galaxy S2 i9100! [Best ROM]

Resurrection Remix ICS ROM version 1.9.1 is out, now with a bunch more features like ExTweaks and Siyah kernel. ย I think with the new version 1.9, it’s better than ever, you should find many great features, better performance and battery life.

UPDATE: Please see update version 2.0!

You can now also get Tablet Mode easily by flashing the Tablet-Ui Mode.zip in CWM. Also you can re-flash Default-Ui Mode.zip to get it back into Phone mode.

    how do i install this verison from 1.8 without loosing all my apps and data and just doing a simple upgrade many thanks saqib

    • admin

      you can try installing without wipe, but make a backup of your ROM in CWM beforehand just in case. But most cases, u should be able to upgrade to the new version without wipe.

  • woodtable80

    Do you have to flash the siyah kernel. To upgrade to new ics rom or just wipe an load on
    old .mod kernel? Does the sim data plan work on this version. Thanks

    • Nuchon

      Nope…. it does all by itself. It’s so quickly i didn’t believe it… works like a charm. The only two things that are not so ok are:
      1. No mms
      2. My phone had turned off by itself twice…

      The Google Music externalsd issue was solved too… really, it’s just really really good! ๐Ÿ˜€ 19/20

  • Sam

  • David

    Hey bud,

    Your website Rocks!!! Thanks again for all the videos and clear explanations. Awesome!!!

    I’ve downloaded the Res 1.9.1 ROM Remix on my Galaxy S2 and ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!!

    Everything works perfectly. However, since installing it, I’ve noticed:

    1) I cannot get ANY of my calendars to sync (all my emails use google apps, including my work emails).

    2) I keep getting a sync error for the CALENDARS (emails, contacts etc sync with no problems).

    3) I have tried to go to Apps, and Calendar and Clear Data, and reboot, to no avail.

    4) I’ve tried deleting all the email accounts, rebooting, then adding them back again. Same error.

    I didn’t have this problem with the 1.8.1 Res Remix Rom.

    Can you let me know what I need to do to fix this?

    Please Help!

    Cheers,

    David.

    • Sam

      Try flashing Gapps fixer?

  • Pieter Provoost

  • David

    Ok I flashed Gapps fixer again, and voila! My calendars are syncing correctly now.

    How does the Beats Audio feature works? Thanks in advance ๐Ÿ™‚

    • lmh

      Go to settings/sound/music effects select musicfx which has beats audio integrated into it…..then in play music on sound effects turn the eq on….this will turn beats audio on there is no setting to select it as it is integrated into musicfx….note that you can’t use the eq to make changes as they will just turn off next song….if it works you will not notice much but the base notes are a little richer and the volume is a little higher….is an improvement though….hope that helps!

      • Aaron

        Thanks a lot man!

  • littlecrazywolf

    one big no no again for this lame ass rom and previous versions, most say great rom i ever tried, everything works perfectly but…………..this dont work. that stops, and bla bla bla, dudes read your own message what you have wrote down, how the f@ck can you say its a great perfectly working rom :S.

    and for the noobs who have never flashed a rom, better flash more roms and make a comparison and than say this is the best rom. offcourse you can write your oppinion here but if you need some attention ask it to your closed ones.
    i have flashed it all max and with great dissopointment, ill stick for now with the criskelo v10 and foxhound what is sattisfying my hunger for roms at this moment, how ever i like overclocking but notice that my phone got really hot and got running slow. and benchmark dont say shit bcose one time i got around 3500 and another than i got 5300. waiting for a good 404 rom till than criskelo and foxhound rulezzzzzz. and get high on my stinking feet ๐Ÿ™‚

    • jellywobbles

      I couldn’t agree more with you! Foxhound simply puts this ROM to shame.
      Why? Dead easy – IT WORKS! ๐Ÿ˜‰
      No issues with “lost external SD card” – works with Abyss / Siyah kernels! Fast & smooth!
      I strongly recommend trying Foxhound before you say things like “Best ROM” etc

      Cheers, hope this helps someone. Of course this is just my opinion ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Parth Walikhindi

        listening to u and downloading foxhound right now!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Samuel Tan

    can i download it with siyah kernel ?

    • Sam

  • Kevin

    I’m running the resurrection remix ics v1.9 by westcrip 4.0.4, and the Wi-Fi wont seem to connect..

    Is there a way to fix this or should I just upgrade to v1.9.1?

  • ndubuisi

    i cant find my sd card…i can see it when i navigate to “storage” in settings but I cant seem to access it
    please help.
    aside that, this Rom seems to work, especially with the radio apk…good to know it dosen’t rely on the internet….

    • Sam

      Search for mmt/emmc
      thats where you can find your sd card

  • Adit

    does this version support usb otg?? it says it already uses the siyah kernel as a default…..am on v 1.8 now….which kernel will get the otg up n running?? ryt now it doesn seem to be working on my rooted sgs2

  • ndubuisi

    and also, how does the Beats Audio feature work?

  • taniket

    hi,yesterday i installed v1.9
    today there is new one available …just want to ask is there any way of upgrading without loosing data…from v1.9 to v1.9.1

  • Adit

    Major problem….installed the rom but it reads the SD card as USB storage and the gallery nor the music player detects any files stored in the SD card…..please give me a solution

    • dcdancruz

      Got the same issue on media files.phnce cant seem to recognize pictures and mp3s both in gallery and music players too. Did a resca media root. Did reboot. Turn off. No joy at all. Any fix for this?

  • paul

    Ive used this rom all day and as many other users have reported SD Card issues still remain for me as well , this rom wont even allow me to make calls without crashing , it does look good though , but id rather have everything work as it should . The benefits of having a modded rom from stock are great if you get everything working this rom does not offer that, i am therefore going back to my backed up stock rom with root. What you do is upto you..

  • Adit

    can’t tell u how good this rom would have been if these issues were not thr…..wifi dies at times, games like gangstar rio which store their files in the sd don’t work coz the location has been chnaged to emmc and not external_sd, the sd problem, and loads of other bugs which just take the limelight away from the superb features which have been introduced….like…flipboard of galaxy s3, the rom control and theme feature….siyah as default kernel and what not

    • ndubuisi

      dude, how did u get ur games like gangstar rio to work on S2 with ICS?my games keep crashing…as if they are not compatible with ICS of any kind…help anigga out?

      • adit

        hi…can u post a screencast or a screenshot?? which rom are u on?? if nothing works i will give u the apk i used or my titanium backup file if i can locate it

  • sandeep

    music player does not detect any songs fromthe SD card, please help…… if this cannot be solved then its a horrible ROM….

  • sandeep

    i think that the VK ROM is better than this one as it has beats Audio, complete Google nexus interface and HTC sense for multitasking, but i have heard so much about this ROM and wants to use it but SD card is a big issue.

  • pacmanman

    Hello, do you know if there is a “vibration intensity” setting as it is in the custom rom?

    Thanks

    • admin

      Not sure but you can install Go Keyboard app which can control vibration for your keyboard.

  • Chepe Centro

    I’ve been trying this ROM for a day and so far almost everything works fine for me.
    I’ve got problems with the select/copy/paste functions. They don’t seem to work. Any clues anyone?

    Also maybe a n00b question. Where or how can I install Google Talk? It’s gone!

    • admin

      Hold down to copy, that’s weird, I have Google Talk on mine.

      • Chepe Centro

        What do you mean “Hold Down”?

        I searched on Play Store and it’s not there and is not in my apps drawer. Not even on Titanium Backup.

        • rohandroid

          I had the same problem…just reboot the phone and voila! The copy paste that you know for Android is there:)

  • sohaib

    Hi all folks,

    To tell you the truth, there is not any problem with the SDcard.

    You just got to rename the “ร‹xternal_sd” to External_sd123…. and Voila!!! Things work normally… All your apps will read the SD card … and guess what.. the best thing about it, there is an update package included in this ROM…

    So the people who need to update from version 1.8.1 to 1.9.1.. is simple… JUST Flash the ROM through CWM… No cache or Wipe needed….

    I have done it.. !! works like a charm….

    • Alex

      Sorry but I’ve tried renaming the external sd to “external_sd123” and it still doesn’t recognizes it.
      It really sucks most of my files are there,I love this rom but if I can’t fix this then I’ll have to flash stock again.

    • adit

      hi shoaib plz put up a screencast of the procedure…it’d helpful

  • sohaib

    For GOOGLE TALK…. Download the Default_Apps for 1.9.1.zip

    Install it in CWM using option Install ZIP from SD card…

    There you go… you have all the google apps in your resurrection ROM….

    Cheers….

    • Chepe Centro

      Genius! That fixed the Missing Apps issue. Thanks!

  • Anurag

    Hey max.. Plz help me..

    I downloaded 1.9
    And now they they’ve 1.9.1
    how do I update?
    Do I have to download the new version and flash it all over again and again setup the whole apps etc?? Ain’t there a way to update update a rom?
    If my question is stupid, I’m really sorry coz this is my first custom rom ever

    • sohaib

      Just… download the ROM 1.9.1 and Flash it using CWM selecting Install zip from SD card… or from internal SD….

      This rom has an update package which detects the previous Resurrection version and updates it…. All your data and Apps will remain untouched… Do Not WIPE or clear Cache….

      I did it on S2 and works perfectly alright… check my post above…

      • Anurag

        Thanks sohaib!
        I’ll try that ..
        One more doubt.. some stock apps like messaging, email (not Gmail ,just stock email app) are not working ..whenever I open them q message is displayed ” messaging has stopped working ”
        And whenever I reboot the phone ..there’s a message displayed ” unfortunately, exchange services have stopped ”
        Any remedy ??

  • tjx

    A couple of problems so far:
    1. Messaging always forclose. When I want to check SMS, I can see the list. But when I click one for details, the application will forclose with the err message “unfortunately, messaging has stopped”
    2. Skype voice calls: I can hear the rings when I dial, but once the other side picked up the call and call is connected, no sounds.
    3. Same problem in Talkatone for google voice.
    Anyone has the same problems?

    • tjx

      The problem 2 and 3 looks like only happens when I use a Iphone earphone (not sure if only iphone earphone, I will try other earphones). Without earphone, skype and talkatone works well. In my previous gingerbread 2.3.5, I can use Iphone earphone for call and I can even change songs and pause when I listen to the music. But now all these functions are gone in this rom.
      So now the only problem I care is messaging application does not work and I can not read SMS. Another problem I just found this morning is the phone has been dead twice after I turn off the screen. I need to long press power button several times to start the phone.

      • Anurag

        I have the same messaging problem..couldn’t really find a remedy.. So i downloaded go sms pro.. Kind of sad but it’s a fine alternative

  • wpin

    First of all, thanks to the developers’ best effort to develop this excellent ROM!
    However, I’m facing some problems as below:-

    1. Why can’t just to stick back the external SD card reference to external_sd but need to refer to a new directory of mmt\emmc which is quite confusing?

    2. New terms of storage: Stock ROM Internal Storage has been changed to SD Card under this ROM; Stock ROM External SD Card has been changed to USB Storage under this ROM?

    3. Apps to SD Card, previously we can move it to the External SD Card (named as USB Storage by this ROM) but now it moved to our Internal Storage (named as SD Card by this ROM). It’s confusing yet it taken up all our internal storage and the expandable SD card just purely serves as media storage. Sometimes we need the internal storage for HD games. With this kind of changes, all apps and games data etc. have taken almost of my internal storage.

    4. After USB debugging mode is on, or whenever after unmounted the SD/Internal Storage, the Gallery needs to take almost 1 hour (or longer) to appear in the Gallery Album?!

    5. Facebook account can be added into syncing, however it doesn’t reflects to the contact list. It doesn’t import / sync into the contact?!

    6. Problem with the Email stop and Exchange Service stop. Any solution on this?

    Thank you!

    • Steph

      tell me if you find a way for facebook contacts please ๐Ÿ™‚

      • wpin

        I didn’t find any solution / reply from others. There is no phone video call button, can’t sync Facebook contacts, Apps to SD has been stored in the internal memory and scanning of photos & videos are too slow. Hence, I’ve changed it to another ROM which can completely fulfilled my requirement, and I’ve to sorry and good bye with this hottest ROM in the world.

        However, I found this ROM is superb fast and smooth. This is the advantages for it.

  • steph

    Hi ! I really love this rom but i’m not able to make the bln works. Could someone help me please ? ๐Ÿ™‚

  • simol

    Flashed version 1.9.1 on my sgs2 and my phone became so unstable at 1400ghz overclock.. I had siyah kernel on it.. It was stable at 1300ghz overclock only.. I installed tegrak 2nd cpu and it was only then it became stable at 1400ghz.. Is it supposed to be that way? My battery drains a little bit faster.. I thought version 1.9.1 would be everything.. But mh phone was much stable at version 1.8.1 1400ghz overclock..

    • admin

      It all depends on your phone, some phones can handle more overclocking than others. Also depends on ROM too but more with your luck.

  • tjx

    Still the external SD problem. I cannot find the directory (mmt\emmc) in file explorer. But some applications, like Gallery and ezPDFreader can read all files in external SD card. How to locate the folder? Do I need to download a third party file explorer?
    BTW, when I first install the ROM, Gallery can not read any file from external SD card. But after some time ( I do not remember how long), the Gallery find all photos in external SD card but I did not do anything.

    • ndubuisi

      click on the File Explorer,
      click on /mnt/sdcard/
      click on mnt.
      you will see a set of folders, including your external s.d but it is named “emmc”

        There is no /mnt in my explorer. When I open file explorer, there are three tabs on the top: BROWSE, SD CARD, and FTP. I went to SD CARD, and there is no /mnt folder. But there is a up arrow on the top right under the three tabs. If I click that , it shows “SDCARD” and “EMMC”. I can tell EMMC is the external SD card from the size it shows. But if I click “EMMC”, I am not able to jump to EMMC and still stay in “SDCARD”.

        • ndubuisi

          under BROWSE, SD CARD and FTP, u will see the search icon(magnifying glass). then /mnt/sdcard and then an arrow pointing back and and arrow pointing up
          click on the /mnt/sdcard

    Cannot connect to WIFI
    Iโ€™m running the resurrection remix ics v1.9.1 by westcrip 4.0.4, and the Wi-Fi wont seem to connect
    When activating wifi, it says – not within range.
    No problem when I used v1.8.1

  • Aaron

    I’m having troubles with my music and photos in the gallery, they don’t appear unless i wait for an hour or so.
    Is there any way to fix this? It happens every time y reboot the phone or go into usb mode.
    Thanks in advance

    Why can’t i download instagram?! ๐Ÿ™

  • Ken

    Does anyone get battery indicator in left hand side of status bar and if so how to disable.
    Also is anyone able to disable the touch keys backlight. By selecting Settings/Device Settings/Sensors/Enable keys backlight the setting does not work. Lock phone and open and the touch keys light up even when this is not set. What a battery drain having these lights on when the screen is on.

    • Steph

      I dont know about the battery… is it the icon or the battery bar ? If its the battery bar then go to rom control/battery and you can play with it. For the backlights, did you take a look at Extweaks/BLN. If you’re not able to disable it, you can at least set the led timeout to 1.5 sec and switch off the “led on touch”

      • Ken

        Thanks for the reply. What you suggested regarding the led light worked. Set it to 1.5 sec and it times out when phone is unlocked. Can’t seem to disable it fully but that’s not a drama. Regarding the battery I know how to remove the icon on right hand side but it’s the text icon on left I was wondering if it was possible to remove.

  • Ron

    V1.9.1 stucked on boot screen from last 15 min…NO backup in internal memory…error in mounting sd card…what to do ? Please help

    • Gandalf

      you should try flashing what ever you had before so that the phne works download it again and re install it. I had soemthing like that happen to me, and it was just that when I downloaded the ROM somehow it didnt download all of it just 199mb of 207mb, so i re installed 1.8 then download it 1.9 again and unstalled it and it works just fine… only thing is I havent found BEAT AUDIO …. no biggie

  • Blank

    Heey can zedomax or someone else help me with something.. sinds i had V1.8.1 installed and i played a little bit with the fast charge option, my SD card and phone won’t mount anymore on my pc. And sometimes when i am charging it says that the voltage is too high and it stops with charging. Even turning on my phone is annoying right now.

    I already wiped batt stats, reflashed the rom to 1.9.1 but it doesn’t have any effect.
    Does somebody experienced this before?

    I would appreciate it if someone helps out.

    Regards

  • Blank

    I have found my solution. In Ex tweaks i found out that my default stats of the battery has been changed. Like way too high. I set everything back to default and problem solved !!

    • Steph

      Can you tell me how to change everything to default in extweak ? cause I’ve been playing with a lot of stuff and now my battery/default/performance .. are all mixed up. thnxs ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Blank

        If u look at the bars under CPU there will be small explanation about how high the defaults are and of course how high stat it is on this moment.

        Set it back to the level of default and you’re done.

    My phone has been dead four times until this morning. It happened after I turn off the screen as normal. Everything is normal before I turn off the screen, no foreclose, etc. Since in my last installation, I increase CPU to 1400 HZ which made my phone keeps booting, I just use the default 1200 HZ after I reinstall the rom. Anyone has the same problem?

    • Clement

      Are you referring to the phone not able to wake up once it goes to auto screen off (pressing any buttons doesnt wake the phone)? if so i do have this issue too.

      Just curious are you running any battery saver apps? I am doing some testing and nothing conclusive now.. however if you turn off your wifi, it should solve the issue of deep sleep. Not ideal but worth a try as it works for me.

      • tjx

        yes, i am talking about the same problem. I am using extended baterry saver. But when the problem happens, I did not use any power saving mode. I cannot turn it off as I do use wifi most time. I just uninstalled the battery app. I will see if the problem still exists.

        • Clement

          i am using juice defender myself… and when wifi is on it tends to go into a deep sleep. So in the past i will just turn on wireless when i needed it and off when i dont. but at times i forget and the above happens

          what i did was to stop juice defender to control my wireless and left wireless on. So far it has been good for the last 10 hours..

          I think it should solve this issue with this configuration but let me test it out more throughly before concluding this works.

          Hope this helps you somewhat.

    Hi, thanks for the guide.
    However, I’ve got a problem.
    Before flashing, I was on GB 2.3.4 stock ROM, and use Samsung Kies PC to backup Contacts/SMS…
    After installing this ROMs, connect phone to PC and open Samsung Kies PC, it says error:

    Title: Unsupported connection mode alert
    Content: Reconnect the device in Samsung Kies (PC Studio) mode. Current connection mode is not supported by Kies.

    I want to connect by Kies and restore all the backup data. Do you know how to fix this?

    • admin

      I don’t think this ROM and any AOSP/AOKP ROMs support Kies, you have to go with a TouchWiz base ROM.

  • Yerffoeg

    Hi!
    I’ve been using this ROM for quite a while now and its really good, fast and stable, highly recommended.

    I’m currently on version 1.9.1 and my SGS2 is rebooting by itself like twice or thrice a day. What do you think
    would be my SGS2’s problem? I’m running at stock speed, Could it be Siyah kernel? Never encountered this
    problem since i’ve used ICS ROM 9.6 to 1.8.

    Any suggestions would be really appreciated :

  • Gabriel

    Someone PLEASE help me! I really love this rom but because of this SD Card problem, I can’t use it.
    Before this rom, my default SD card location is external_sd but now it has changed to emmc. For instance, if I try to use a music player , no songs will be there because it cannot detect the music from emmc folder. I have tried allowing the folder to be readable but it won’t work. Please help me , how do I fix this? ๐Ÿ™

      Yes you can. For all Galaxy S2s, the great thing is that you can install “any” custom ROM regardless of Gingerbread or ICS, I flash back and forth easily 10 times a day.

      It might sense to think that you have to upgrade to ICS first but in reality you can simply install custom ROM that is GB or ICS.

        Thanks very much man am going to flash it now ๐Ÿ™‚

    @sudipta

    MIUI is very good looking but has the worse battery life than any other rom available (despite using the phone in a moderate way). It is understandable though, otherwise you wouldn’t be able to have such a pretty design.
    Two K.O. features for MIUI in my case:
    1. Just chinese and english. Where do I get further languages?. Its probably possible but that involves time and a further task that you would spare yourself by flashing another rom.
    2. No MHL to HDMI support at all. Meaning in the first place that you WON’T be able to display neither your videos nor your fotos, etc. saved on your telephone on your TV screen, and secondly (obviously) no MHL support for streaming live internet on your big screen.
    If you don’t care about this two features and don’t care about battery life but love a pretty face, than MIUI is definitely for you.

  • mariner233

    hey man , good job… I love your Rom … but to me there is one problem , in the stock rom I can choose if I want to work on WCDMA only or GSM only or WCDMA & GSM … I want this option , where can I find it.. because I work all the time on 3g.. but when I am using this rom it works on 2g all the time because it’s signal is stornger than the 3g… is there a way in the rom to disable the 2g and work only on 3g.

    • ajay

      go to synstem settings then wireless and network setting> more>mobile network> and then deselct “use only 2g networks” if u want to use 3g in ur mobile…… select it again to use 2g ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

      • mariner233

        I did that but the problem that, when the 3g signal is weak it turns automatically to 2g.. and I don’t want that.. I want when there is no 3g signal or when there is 3g signal but weak to never change to 2g like the stock rom

  • TheStuf

    Thanks, its working well and it has may great features.

    I have one problem tho, and i THINK its with the YouTube app. Sometimes when i use the app and when i want to watch a video in landscape, it doesnt turn into landscape mode and after that the landscape doesnt work anywhere even tho turning is allowed in all settings. Playing a while with the settings fixed it and a restart helps too.

    And another thing, the codes such as *#1234# doesnt seem to work???

    Hello,

    I’ve already tried to install this room on my SGS2 twice but for some reason while im installing from the sdcard, it kinda tries to install but the progress bar wont move then it says that the installation was completed then I reboot the phone and it goes to ”kernel panic upload mode” and stays there.

    I had to flash back to XXLPB build and root the phone again, its kind of annoying so, am I doing something wrong?? do I need some other files in order for this rom to work on my GT-I9100.

    I woul really appreaciate some help, cause my XXLPB build has an overheat effect on my phone that I don;t like and that’s why I want to try this rom.

      The best way to back up contacts is to have them on your Google account, that way every time u flash a new ROM u can just sync with your Google account and you’ll get all your contacts back.

    Hi Max, I flashed this from and its perfect.
    To anyone out there with problems just wipe ur dalvik cache and reboot and you should be all good. I also noticed that the usual overheating issue wasn’t fixed so I recommend that people should flash the KH3 modem.
