This rooting process is pretty safe to do, does not erase anything on your phone, it just installs a custom kernel (which comes with a custom recovery) and we root the phone using SU binary and Superuser app.  That’s it! Step 1. Turn your Galaxy S2 GT-i9100 off.  Then hold down Volume Down, Center Home, and Power buttons together for about 3 seconds until you see the warning screen.

Android 5.1.1 ROM for T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989! [Validus ROM]

It’s been a quite awhile since my last update on the T-Mobile Galaxy S2, particularly because every Android Lollipop I’ve tried have been very buggy and not recommended as daily driver and also development has slowed down.

But, this week I decided to take the plunge and try out several different ROMs.   To my surprise, I have finally found a good stable Android 5.1.1 custom ROM I can recommend, and thus I am writing this post.

Omni ROM for AT&T Galaxy S2! [Android 5.1.1]

I have been extensively testing many Android 5.1.1 ROMs for the AT&T Galaxy S2 SGH-i777 lately.  One of the biggest bugs with Android 5.1.1 ROMs for the SGH-i777 model is the absence of audio when talking on the phone.  This is circumvented on Android 5.1.1 by simply toggling the speaker on and off quickly.   This is sorta annoying for those of you who talk a lot on your phone but if you don’t mind that, you can enjoy all the goodness of Android 5.1.1.

CM12.1S ROM for Galaxy S2 GT-i9100! [Android 5.1]

Looking for a good Android 5.1 Lollipop ROM for your Galaxy S2 GT-i9100?

Check out the CM12.1S ROM, which is a hybrid of CM12S ROM from OnePlus One and latest Android 5.1.

This ROM features latest CyanogenMod CM12.1 Android 5.1 features along with OnePlus One camera, AudioFX, Screencast (screen recording app), and Hexo theme. I’ve tried many of the latest CM12.1 and Android 5.1/5.1.1 ROMs in the past week but found this ROM to be most stable with everything working out of the box except Netflix video playback.  Also, if you want to know about all of the latest CM12.1 ROM features, check out this video.
