For this week’s Galaxy S2 GT-i9100 and AT&T SGH-i777 ROM of the week, check out SIV Series ROM.

Built on Android 4.1.2 Samsung firmware, SIV Series ROM aims to bring you the best and latest S4 stuff like S4 multi-window flashbar, apps from S4 such as S Health, S Voice, S Translator, and coupled nicely with Siyah Dorimanx kernel to bring you overclocking near 1.6Ghz.  (Also OC available on SGH-i777.)

Other notable features include AdvanceS app to customize your quick toggles, ink color changer, S4 Glow Light lockscreen, Note 2 Pop-up browser, and STweaks app to fully tweak your CPU/GPU frequencies and adjust sound.

You can also add some nifty S4 features like Hovering Controls App.

Overall, seems like a very promising ROM and the developer of this ROM is looking for feedback so if you have time, please try this ROM this week(end) and post any thoughts on it.

    • Sabu John

        link not working

      • Rubic_Cube

        Seconding slasher1986 above… link does not work.

        If the alternate kernel worked for you, could you also confirm if all 4 hardware buttons on the S2 were working for you?

    • Nick

      I had the same problem as I quoted in my post above. so in the end I went back to snapdragon which seems to work best for me which is one of the best imo for now

      • Sabu John

        But you can resolve it by flashing with another kernel …… use the link i posted in the above….

      • Sabu John

        if u are looking again for OC the CPU and GPU…then try siyah or dorimax kernel…..
        for siyah and dorimax kernal video player working perfectly…..

      • poppiesgdd

        That’s strange , I tried posting a comment about that site
        and had the comment deleted before I could even post it.
        The moderator deleted the comment saying it was spamming .
        What’s up on this site , does it have double standards or what ???.
        I am a member of both sites , and made a valid comment !.
        I would like an explanation from someone here about the
        double standard . This is a question to the moderator or site
        holder , not Sabu , and I am asking here so that everyone
        can see the answer . Glenn .

  • edwreybax

    Nice ROM… been using it for a week now and runs well on my GALAXY S II I777 with Jeboo kernel i777 v2-3a.

    • Rubic_Cube

      Did you flash v2.3a after installing the SIV Series ROM? All 4 hardware buttons work?

      • edwreybax

        @ Rubic_Cube… yes after i installed the rom. Still using it and it works fine.

  • David

    Hi there , I installed the rom but my wi -fi is not working ,,, im using a galaxy s2 Gt i9100 , any solutions ?

  • suresh2006

    back button and search button not working for sghi777
    nice rom

  • Rubic_Cube

    Tried this ROM during the weekend. Slowed down my phone to almost a crawl. Hated the fact that hardware buttons (back and search) were deactivated and I had to use the “Home” button as the back button. I can understand why this would be the case with new devices like the S3 or S4. But for S2, all 4 hardware buttons should have been preserved. Same issue with Bitfor ROM. So went back to ShoStock3 ROM.

    Also, some apps/features like Hovercontrol do not work as shown in the video. I would like more statusbar customizations like the ones available with ShoStock3.

    • Luis

      Mm I am using Biftor ROM in my s2 and all the buttons work fine. But of course shostock3 is a great ROM too.

  • Saravanan

    I am running on this Rom, found a bug recently. The phone is shutting down by itself when we keep them in idle. When turned back on, we could see 94% battery remains. Anybody is having this problem?

    • Saravanan

      In other words, Is anyone else having a bad wake up problem? What I mean is, this will freeze after some time being locked, and I’ll have to do a battery pull.
