Resurrection Remix ICS ROM version 1.9.1 is out, now with a bunch more features like ExTweaks and Siyah kernel. I think with the new version 1.9, it’s better than ever, you should find many great features, better performance and battery life.
Galaxy S2 Root
For this week’s ROM of the week, we want to recommend you MIUI ICS ROM, which is available for all Galaxy S2 GT-i9100, AT&T Galaxy S2 SGH-i777, and T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989.
MIUI (prounounced Me-U-I), is probably one of the best ROMs for theme-addicts. MIUI ICS ROM’s major features include free themes, ringtones, and wallpapers that can easily be customized to user’s liking. Other than that, MIUI really “overhauls” the Android UI to its own so you will find a fresh, new user interface you’ve never seen with any other ROMs.
Here’s an update on the best ICS ROM for Galaxy S2 i9100, Resurrection Remix ICS AOKP ROM has been upgraded to version 1.8.1
I’ve been guilty of using my AT&T Galaxy S2 SGH-i777 the most this week but the good news is that I think I’ve finally found a great ICS ROM that runs flawless, the AOKP ICS ROM.
For those of you who want to get rid of that yellow triangle on boot, you can do it using a USB jig or use the Triangle Away app by famous XDA developer ChainFire.
This should work on all versions of Galaxy S2 so if you need to get rid of it, there you go!
You can download the app on XDA.
Check out Chicago ICS ROM for your T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989, this ROM features super slim profile with zero bloatware to get you up and speed through the day.
Another great ICS ROM for your T-Mobile Galaxy S2 so give it a go and let me know what you think of this ROM!
Looking to dual-boot two ROMs on your AT&T Galaxy S2 SGH-i777? Here’s a video tutorial showing you how to do that. Dual-booting two ROMs can have great benefits, that you can run a stock-like TouchWiz ROM and AOKP ICS ROM side-by-side. For people on the go (like myself) who need to test out several ROMs on the go, this feature really saves time and headache of backing up and restoring different ROMs.
Here’s another ICS ROM that is closer to Samsung TouchWiz for those of you who want to stay near stock.
The Sensation ICS ROM features 15 toggles, CRT animation, SIP support, removed camera click, phone with call recording, themed UI, and much more.
I’ve gotten a ton of great feedback about this ROM so definitely will satisfy your thirst for ICS. Give it a twirl and let me know how it goes for you!
For AT&T Galaxy S2 SGH-i777, you can “hellraise” a GT-i9100 ROM to work on your AT&T Galaxy S2. Since both phones are nearly identical except modem and menu buttons, it makes it easy to interchange ROMs. You can look for hellraiser tools on XDA if you are interested in doing this yourself.
Here’s another solid ICS ROM for your Galaxy S2 i9100 that you can try if you want to stay more stock with TouchWiz with a ton of features, great performance and battery life over stock ICS.
Notable features include CF-Root Kernel (I swapped out with Siyah for dual-boot), Omega Files kitchen app (for further customization and you can also install Apex or Nova launcher), Swype/Samsung/Google Keyboard, and more.
