For those of you looking for a good custom ROM with multi-window feature on the T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989, your long wait is over as the latest version of BeanStalk ROM comes with multi-window feature ported from Omni ROM.

This new multi-window feature allows you to multi-task between two different apps in horizontal or vertical mode with an evenly-divided screen.  You cannot resize the windows  yet like Samsung TouchWiz but it’s still better than not having multi-window at all, which has been the case for the T-Mobile Galaxy S2 ever since Samsung released multi-window feature on the Galaxy Note, S3, and Note 2.

Overall, BeanStalk ROM is going to get you that multi-window on your T-Mobile S2 so you can finally multi-task like other Samsung smartphone owners can.  Not only that, BeanStalk comes packed with latest customizations including AOKP ROM Control Settings-like tweaks, PIE Controls, HALO floating notifications, and much much more, all in an Android 4.3.1 package.

I’ve tried BeanStalk ROM on several of my other Android smartphones and also is one of my favorite AOSP ROMs of all time so you can’t go wrong with this ROM when you consider it also has multi-window.  So, give it a test drive this week(end) and do let me know what you think!


Download BeanStalk ROM for T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989

Download Android 4.3 Gapps (for all, DO NOT USE Android 4.2 Gapps, they will FC!)

To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps and reboot.   (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop, reboot into recovery, go to Advanced Wipe for TWRP or Mounts & Storage for CWM, format/wipe /system, then re-install ROM.)

Download Flash Player APK (if you want flash player)

DownloadAndroid 4.3 PhotoSphere (if you want photosphere, but may force close so make a backup of your Gallery app using Titanium Backup app before installing!  )

If you want to run your apps in tablet/hybrid/custom DPI mode, see our Xposed App Settings guide.

If you want some awesome audio, check out Viper4Audio FX MOD, which you can install on this ROM to enhance your music 100%.

  • vinicius

    great rom so far! but i got 2 problems
    gallery freezes the phone and restarts (not the app the phone)
    and i got all the time the message that the sd card was removed

    • Max

      That’s weird, working fine here, might be your sd card, see if you can read it.

      • vinicius

        yep…i think it was the sd! just formated and the problem seems to be gone

        but the gallery app still restarts the phone
        i had the same issue with another android 4.3 rom
        with the gallery that comes from gapps, with the gallery from photosphere and even with one gallery from ICS that i downloaded from play store

    • vinicius

      nope…the problem is back =/

      anyway to get back mass storage device connection instead of MTP?

  • KennyG

    Love the ROM but having a really weird issue with it. It works great for about 5 min then, just starts rebooting over and over and over (and over…). It’s so bad that the behavior continued even when I installed a different ROM. The only way I was able to get it to stop was by unrooting it and then reapplying the root. Any ideas what this might be?

  • soupy031

    The only time I’ve ever seen this happen, and this is my ROM, I built it, is when u don’t have a 4.3 Compatible recovery It will loop on u, u need to be on at least TWRP v2.6.1.0 or CWM v6.0.3.7, and u need to have formatted ur system at some point with that recovery..

    • KennyG

      Yeah, I’ll try updating my recovery and give it another go. I really liked this ROM or, at least, what I was able to use of it, and I hope that resolves it! Thanks!!

    • Matt The Great

      Where did you get your cwm update ?

    • KennyG

      Updated to the latest CWM ( and still having the rebooting issue.

  • Tenfiftysix

    I can confirm that I had the same issues of looping. I then upgraded from CWM to 3.7 and the problem was solved.
    I am however having a problem with split view. I am only able to get one split screen and when I add another, it just replaces the first one so I cannot get 2 split screens. Any ideas?

  • shane

    the issue i am having is that i can’t use the call feature. says it not installed

  • gera

    the gallery app freezes and restart the phone. any way to solve it?

    • jana

      mine too, and it keep pops out unfortunately, Android Keyboard (AOSP) has stopped. plz help!

  • CADman

    I have a question, i’m running the beanstalk rom right now, what does the LTE button do? What’s it for?

  • Travis

    I am also having the gallery/reboot issue. This occurs, like KennyG, using any app that taps into my dcim storage. Even with SD card formatted, and/or removed, it still reboots. This is the only issue I am having. Camera works and that is the only time I can access my gallery, though I am limited to just that one folder. Will try to reinstall to see if that helps. Other than that this is my favorite ROM, even better than AOKP which I love.

  • Travis

    Edit: it was Vinicius and Gera, not KennyG.

  • Xavier

    will try this one

  • Xavier

    working fine so far

  • Xavier

    installed it on my daughters s2 today. working fine also.

  • Asilos

    I have the same question on the gallery, and it seems that nobody has an answer,(besides those of the sd card). I also tried switching gallery app but same. Weird thing when using facebook to upload pictures the gallery seem to work kinda fine its only when you enter directly to it. Also randomly says sd car unexpectely removed

    • Xavier

      i haven’t had any problems with the gallery.

      try darkside super wipe. thats what i always do when installing a new rom.

      if that fail, try to format your whole system. keep in mind that formating you internal sd will erase everything like pictures and stuff. yoy will need an external sd where you will place the new rom to flash it after formating.

      • Asilos

        Thanks I have tried several tricks posted here but i just changed the rom. Bean stalk is great but i rather use the halo features than anything else, everything works without any effort.

  • Darrrrel
