ShoStock3 ROM + Siyah Kernel for AT&T Galaxy S2 SGH-i777! [Best ROM/Kernel Combo]

After doing some serious soul-searching on the best ROM for the AT&T Galaxy S2 SGH-i777, I’ve finally found a great combination that brings the best of features, speed, and battery life.

Check out the latest ShoStock3 ROM with Siyah kernel. Honestly, I was having some issues with running latest ShoStock3 ROM but after switching the kernel out with the latest Siyah, it runs near flawless with great battery life even with 1.6Ghz overclocking.

AOKP ROM MR1 Build 3 for T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989!

While we “still” wait for a good, stable ROM with multi-window on the T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989, we can explore some other cool alternatives such as the AOKP ROM MR1 Build 3.

One of the coolest ROMs on the planet, the AOKP ROM now has MR1 Build 3 for the T-Mobile Galaxy S2, and great news that this is an “official” version direct from the AOKP Team. Even some of the newer phones don’t have an official AOKP build, we should be thankful it is available on the Hercules.

If you haven’t tried the latest version of Revolt Jelly Bean ROM for your Galaxy S2 GT-i9100, check it out as the latest version mixes a ton of features like AOKP ROM Control, Xposed settings (like ParanoidAndroid), multi-user, and even PIE Control.

The biggest change from previous versions is the introduction of Xposed Control apps, which allow you to modify apps by DPI and also run apps in Phone or Tablet (just like Paranoid Android ROM). This feature actually can be applied to most Android devices, I should have a tutorial on that soon also.
