Resurrection Remix ROM v5.1.1 for Galaxy S2! [GT-i9100/SGH-i777]


For this week’s Galaxy S2 GT-i9100 and SGH-i777 ROM of the Week, check out the latest version 5.1.1 of Resurrection Remix ROM.

Based on Android 4.4.2 KitKat, Resurrection Remix ROM brings you great performance along with stability you can rely on. I was actually trying many other AOSP ROMs this week but have had trouble either installing or fixing bugs so I checked out the latest version of Resurrection Remix ROM.

Not too much have changed since last time we took a look in February but there are couple more features like Active Display, HALO, Lockscreen notifications, Omni Switch, and some more. Besides that, you can now run it easily on the AT&T Galaxy S2 SGH-i777 with the RenderBroken kernel which also allows for overclocking up to 1.4Ghz.

Other notable features include full tweaking menus for all your status/notification bars, custom system animations, screen recording with microphone, and Nova + KitKat launchers. Resurrection Remix ROM is definitely my “go to” custom ROM when I am having trouble getting other custom ROMs running on my S2 and with the latest version, you can expect even more speed and stability so give it a twhirl this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

    Problems I’m having: While making a call, there are strange beeps every few seconds. The person at the other end of the call can hear them, too.
    Blackberry Messenger can’t play its built-in sounds (wav). Had to change them to mp3.
    Dialer stops working randomly.
    I hope that will be all.

  • jmitchell513

    I have tried just about every kitkat ROM available for i777, none allow snapchat to take videos… and yes I’ve installed the older snapchap versions and its still freezes.. does anyone have a solution for this!? helpp mehh!

  • koray

    what about battery life? is it better than the earlier version?

  • gen4sr

    I installed this version immediately as I have been updating from the nightly updates and was on 5.1.0.
    Installed easily but when I made phone calls, there was an annoying consistent tone which I had not heard on other updates. Luckily I backed up the 5.1.0 config and restored that in 10mins. Will try the official fix to these pesky tones later this weekend. Not sure whether Battery life has been improved in this version of the ROM as I didn’t get to test that fully, but I have to charge the phone at work for it to last the entire day on the other variants of this ROM

  • Amit Majumder

    Did anybody tried to play a 1080p video on this rom? In the last version, whenever i tried it used to get stuck the whole time.

    It’s necessary to actualize this version because the loud noise on call’s;

    Battery is much sensitive when the phone is in use. How I say this? This battery consume raise abruptally in operation. In stand-bye it’s ok, same as original, but in use the power consuption is very high. You can visualize the decai of battery in minutes!

    Reset alone sometimes in high use of the processator.

    KitKat don’t sincronize google calendar with facebook. (isn’t a rom’s problem).

    Out these details, it’s the best rom that I’ve tried.

      Is there any overheating issues during battery drain?

    • MilesTeg

      Share every word of it. Exactly my toughts about this ROM.

  • macnifico

    Something happened, I don’t know what, but today it started freezing and restarting itself. I wiped it out, reinstalled it, with the same results.
    It was working great, I don’t know if an updated app is making it freeze and restart, but I reluctantly uninstalled it, and I’m going back to either an older version, or Carbon.
    Darn, it was working beautifully yesterday.

  • Michael

    The ROM is great, it works nice and smooth, really fast and really powerful, there’s just one thing i’v noticed….the GPS seems to not work (it won’t calibrate or find my location) i tried various GPS fixes (FasterGPS, GPS Tools) and it’s still not working

    it worked fine with the firmware i had before i installed this ROM

    Any thoughts/ideas?

  • micheal

    Whats the md5 checksum?

  • Sneh

    Hey I have installed this rom and my phone freezes at some level and restarts again. I really like this rom please help to solve the issue.

  • gen4sr

    Have revisited the westcrip download site and version 5.1.3 is available. Seems to be as stable as the 5.1.0 version but the older version definitely has better battery life. I fund that listening to music drains the battery considerably in this ROM. This could be because I use Apollo and the DSP manager to enhance the sound. Definitely my favourite ROM. Just wish they could extend the battery life. Great features include omni switch and app bar. 🙂

  • Ahmed Kassem

  • dhiya

    hi. how to remove “beep beep” sound during calling? i am using 5.1.1 now. does the upgraded version did better and have no “beep beep” sound during calling? and how about battery performance? thanx

    • gen4sr

      You have to install the next nightly which can be found at the westcrip website. I found that the version before 5.1.0 was the best and most bug free. I’ve now switched to C-ROM 4.4.4. IT’S QUITE STABLE BUT CAN CHEW THRU YOUR BATTERY.

  • Kymark

    Does anybody here installed viper4android, I can’t seem to use it. I think it’s from the superuser error that comes with the ROM
