For this week’s T-Mobile Galaxy S2 ROM of the Week, check out latest AOKP ROM + Wild Kernel!
Based on latest Android 4.4.4, AOKP ROM is one of the custom ROMs that started the whole custom ROM Control customization options couple years back. Certainly one of the custom ROMs you must try at least once. This is also one of my “go-to” ROMs.
The latest AOKP ROM brings nice performance enhancements along with the latest Android 4.4.4 plus full AOKP ROM Control Settings.
Inside ROM Control Settings, you will be able to customize your T-Mobile S2 lockscreen, status bar, toggles, Power Menu, Navigation Bar/Ring, system animations, and much much more.
Although many custom ROMs have similar features to AOKP ROM, remember AOKP ROM Control Setting is the true “original”.
For overclocking, if you install Wild kernel, you can overclock up to 1.89Ghz for graphic-intensive gaming. Use Trickster MOD app from Play Store. (See video overview on how to overclock.)
So, definitely take a drive in time machine and install AOKP ROM to enjoy the past with the latest Android 4.4.4 and do let me know what you think!
