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.
For this week’s ROM of the week, check out the Validus ROM for the T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989.
Based on the latest Android 5.1.1, the Validus ROM brings you the best and latest Android 5.1.1 with everything basic working out of the box including camera, bluetooth, WiFi, NFC, etc…etc… The only minor issue I found was glitchy display but you can easily fix this by tapping Build Number in Settings->About 5 times, then you will be able to access Developer Options, where you can check ON “Disable HW overlays”. If you don’t know how to do this, just watch the above video overview.
