For this week’s T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989 ROM of the Week, check out OSE ROM.
Based on latest Android 4.4.2, OSE ROM is an AOSP ROM that mixes-and-matches many features from other AOSP ROMs. This version also is an unofficial version, which has some additional features on top of the official OSE ROM.
Overall, you can expect some excellent performance and battery life from the OSE ROM along with goodies like App Circle Bar, App Bar, Gesture Anywhere, Active Display, Lockscreen notifications, Halo Floating Notifications, OmniSwitch, Custom Animations, PIE Control, and lots more.
There’s way too many great AOSP ROMs out right now and OSE ROM differentiates itself by putting together set of unique features with my favorite being the App Circle Bar, which is like PIE Control but better. If there’s one reason to try this custom ROM, it’s that feature so definitely give it a test drive over the week(end) and do let me know what you think!
IF YOU HAVE CWM RECOVERY OLDER THAN VERSION 220.127.116.11, UPGRADE your CWM Recovery to latest version by downloading the zip and installing with your CWM recovery OTHERWISE ROM WILL NOT INSTALL!
Download and install CWM Recovery 18.104.22.168 for KitKat custom ROMs (ONLY FOR SGH-T989!!!)
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 Mounts & Storage for CWM, format/wipe /system, then re-install ROM.)
