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.

Wild Kernel for T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989!

For this week, check out Wild Kernel for T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989.

I know some of you were asking me about the best custom kernel for your Android 4.4.2 custom ROM, well this new Wild Kernel does a pretty good job at that.

Just released 2 days ago, Wild Kernel comes will a voltage table overhaul that have undervolting built-in to improve your battery life to the maximum without compromising peformance. There’s even “deep sleep” idle mode and more CPI frequency steps when your phone is idling.

BeanStalk ROM with Multi-Window for T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989!

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.

AOKP ROM MR2 for T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989! [Android 4.3]

For those of you with a T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989, you should be happy to learn that you can install the first AOKP ROM MR2 based on latest Android 4.3.

This isn’t an official build (and we are not sure if there will ever be official builds starting with Android 4.3) but it is fairly-close to the final build and runs pretty smooth.  Also, we saw AOKP ROM Control losing featuring during ICS to Jelly Bean upgrade and taking a long time before some of AOKP core features were added back in.  In the MR2 variation, that is not the case and you will get all of your previous Android 4.2.2 AOKP ROM Control features plus a wee-bit more.
