Cannot hold out any longer for multi-window feature from Galaxy Note 2 to be added to your AT&T Galaxy S2 SGH-i777?

Well, you don’t as the latest ShoStock Jelly Bean ROM comes with multi-window feature. Although it’s not working 100% like on a Note 2, it’s very much usable and you can finally do true multi-tasking on your AT&T GS2 without shelling out your wallet for a new Note 2.

Other than that, this ROM is built off the GT-i9100 XXLSJ build so you also get the latest TouchWiz launcher, gallery app, etc…etc…

Looks promising and I am sure this ROM is going to get better and better over the next few weeks.

For those of you who must have the best and latest, flash the ShoStock ROM and let me know what you think.

    Need a quick reply… before flashing new ROMS, is there a process to be done such as factory reset, wipe cache, dalvik cache, or just straight up install it?

    • kasyak says:

      Yes, you need to do wipe/reset if you run into problems. I believe you have to wipe every time you change to a different line of ROMs (i.e. AOKP or ShoStock, etc)

  2. bobby says:

    Everytime i try install a new rom it doesn’t work. the first time i installed a rom it worked, but everytime after just doesnt… someone please give me advice

  3. dipesh raj says:

    i flashed this rom twice. each tym upon booting it said encryption failed. please reset ur device. i then had to unroot it. thanks only to u max. ur unrooting procedure saved my phone!!! bt want this rom badly. what can i do max.?

    • Avatarg says:

      The Rom attached here is version 1 (at least that is what the filename says) but there is already a v1.3 in XDA, and a new version is supposed to be released tonight.
      Maybe you should try with the newest version.

  4. travis says:

    why does downloadandroid not let me download the file it just gives mew a blank page everytimr.

  5. rondeaux says:

    I am stuck in a boot loop

  6. lacosoft says:

    Max Necesito ayuda, instale la Rom y me quito mi codigo de desbloqueo… y no lo tengo.. que hice mal?? vuelvo a la antigua o al backup y siempre sale bloqueado el sim.

  7. chessman says:

    It happened the same to me, the rom goes great but the phone asks for pin net unlocked simcard, any suggestion?

  8. Wilstib says:

    Friends, I have a problem with my phone. Install this rom and my phone lost the release. I’m from Venezuela, one will know how to release it? I root

  9. Chris says:

    well ive been using this rom for about a week now and like Max said its more like a beta version and still have some bugs to get out like…
    1) the multitasking dual window ability does work..but every now and then it might crash and leave a ugly bar in the middle of the screen.
    2) the lock screen ability to choose your own wallpaper sucks because the croper box only let u use half of the screen unless u use it str8 in the middle so u might want to use a 3rd party app.
    3) In-call volume is a hit or miss depending where ur at… on some calls people can not hear me until I put it them speaker phone.

    so by the way if u DO NOT experience any of these problem while using the rom then good for you…but for me this rom is good enough for a daily driver and SHOMAN (Developer of this rom) is pretty good with updates so ima keep rocking with this for anothe week or so

    • Wilstib says:

      Had problems with unlocking sim card?

      • Chris Calhoun says:

        No not at long as I did a full data wipe before installing everything went ok

        • Wilstib says:

          okay. I’m glad I did both and now wipe asks me unlock code sim card = (not as unlock. Wear the galaxy unlocker S and the galaxy s2 unlocker and nothing worked, any suggestions?

          • Chris says:

            hmm? well thats funny ..let me ask u have u ever set a password to your sim card before? your phone shouldnt ask u for such a thing if youre rooted or your service provider put that block on your sim card

            • chessman says:

              Señores aqui esta la solucion para desenllavarlo!

              Ya lo hice y me quedon con la super ROM esta.

              • Wilstib says:

                Man te quedo te quedo al 100%? xq a mi no me agarra internet sin wifi. Apartemente ya esta leyendo la tarjeta sim pero aun no me agarra conexion de datos =(

                • chessman says:

                  Sin quedo al 100% tengo internet por wifi y por APN, solo que en APN tuve que crear la cuenta de internet pero ya esta listo y al 100!! tal vez te falto hacer el wipe…
                  wipe antes de poner la rom
                  wipe despues de poner la rom
                  y luego configuras el APN para navegar por 3g.

                  • Wilstib says:

                    Man como hago para desactivar la voz? Osea cada vez que abro una carpeta, o cambio de pagina me sale una tipa hablando diciendo la pagina,o que se cerro la pagina,etc. Quiero quitar eso,es molesto =/ ayuda

                    • chessman says:

              • Chantanito says:

                ¿Tuviste que pagar? Porque me dice que el teléfono se puede desbloquear pero para eso tengo que usar la versión PRO (paga por supuesto)

    • AK says:

      Chris, I am having the same problem with the in call volume. Everything else works like a charm so far.. Waiting for the updates..

      • chessman says:

        its not a rom problem but only configure the phone correctly where it says:
        configure phone calls
        addicional configuration
        then unclick noise reduction…
        I have my phone in spanish so menus should be similar to that….

    • rondeaux51 says:

      This rom is so cool I love it. However I am having the same problem with phone volume so when they fix that I will reinstall, till then back to aokp

      • chessman says:

        Just configure as I mentioned before…it happened to me but then unclick noise reductions now it works smoothly!!

        • Chris says:

          yes I did the same thing….and it did help the call volume alot, but I have low signal reception too so I know that played a roled

  10. Lacosoft says:

    Amigos mi experiencia con esta rom es agradable, pero desde mi punto de vista creo que lo ke hace la rom es resresetear la carpeta efs. La cual contiene vital info del telefono inclusive el codigo de desbloqueo.
    3 consejos… 1 es tener a la mano el backup de tu rom original hecho con clockmod. Asi derrepente volviendo a esa copia puedas rescatar el desbloqueo. 2. Tener a la mano el backup de la carpeta EFS. pueda ser posible ke restaure esos datos vitales. 3 definitivamente contar con el codigo de desbloqueo. La verdad no se si sirvan mis consejos. Pero vale la pena intentar. O si no … pues a invertir 25 dolares en Dr.Sim para recuperar codigo. SALUDOS!!!!

    • Oneximo Sanchez says:

      Ok, entonces por que galaxy_s unlock funciona con la shockstock anterior android 4.0.4 me lo desbloquea el cell, pero con esta rom esa app no funciona, puedo instalar la version anterior y desbloquearlo y guardar los datos? una vez hecho estoy vuelvo a instalar esta rom y sustutirlo o que? favor sugerencias

  11. rfb813 says:

    Version 1.3.5 now out on XDA site. I have had no problems with this Rom. If you want a more stock like experienced with Multi view try the Aberration 3b Rom on the same XDA site.

  12. bobby says:

    before installing new roms, do i have to FLASH clockwork mod recovery? like each time?

  13. Chris says:

    Just wanted to say that you can move multi window around the screen… just tap on tab and bar will come out… then long press it until haptic then u can move it around.

  14. LOGO says:

  16. Chantanito says:

    This ROM had deleted my EFS folder!!! Everytime it asks for the Unlock Code!!! Any help would be appreciated guys. I have several ClockWork backups but cannot find the EFS folder on any of them…

    • Chris says:

      Try going to the playstore and download app called “GalaxSim Unlock” it should get u that code u need to unlock your phones sim… as for yours ES Folder app ..did u use titanium backup?…its saves all apps your have on your phone in their current state so whrn u switch ROMS your apps will exactly how u left them.

    chessman como configuro el apn para 3 g. and configure the apn for 3G galaxy s2

    • Wilstib says:

      Yo use esta aplicacion TWEAKKER. La instalas y sigues los paso que te dice.

    • chessman says:

      entras a opciones de redes moviles luego a APN luego das boton menu y agregar…
      y ahi das las opciones probar para tu red….osea movistar, claro, tmobile, atyt, cada red tiene distintas configuracion de APN un password, usuario, etc.
      sino la conoces busca un amigo que navegue y entras a configuraciones y ahi copias esas opciones, no esta dificil.

  18. Joe Puff says:

    This looks like a great ROM but is anyone else having issues with the Mic during a call? No body can hear you speak during a call!!
    The XDA thread said to disable noise reduction in the ‘in call settings’. I turned it off, it helped a lot but I still think it could be better.
    Is anyone else having issues with this?
    Does anyone have a fix?

    Max, did you test this ROM to see if the calls actually work before posting a review? LOL We know you’re not using your GS2 phones anymore as a daily driver.
    We still love you Max, and your site. Thanks for all your hard work

  19. Fitzroy Brown says:

    Hi Max. I installed this ROM and now my phone is saying (SIM network unlock PIN) and i cant get on to my service provider. NEED HELP BAD!!!!!!, does anyone know how to fix this problem?

  20. Joe hen says:

    Can someone tell me how to upgrade to v1.3.5. Do I need a pc??

    • Chris says:

      You dont need a pc…just go to the “XDA” website for att i777 development and get the ROM package.
      it will be In zipped form but ..DO NOT UNZIP IT!..just downlaod it to your sd card and install it in recovery mode…IMPORTANT: if your not coming from the previous version then u will have do a full data wipe!

  21. Joe hen says:

    How much of a difference is the new version??

  22. Joe hen says:

    What do I have to do, step by step.

  23. Leer Eon says:

    MAX or Anyone Please HELP!!!! I followed the instructions and now my phone is asking for unlock network sim card pin. I see that others are having the same issue. Please help!!!

    • Chris says:

      go to the play store and get the app called “GalaxSim Unlock” it will help u unlock your sim card to use on custom roms

  24. Joe hen says:

    Chris can u tell me step by step what kind have to do. I had a friend root my phone because I’m clueless. Thanks

    • Chris says:

      1) use this link to go to the xda pg [] and click on word “downnload here” in the center of the page to download the zip
      2) go into recovery mode…hold volume up, down, & the powe buttom simultaneously for 10-30 secs til the recovery screen pops up and use the volume keys to navi.. and the power button to select
      3) go to install zip/install from enternal sd card/download…and select the zip and the phone should do the rest…after installation completes select “re-boot” and u should be fine

  25. Joe hen says:

    Will the zip that I want to download be labeled? Like will it say shostock v1.3.5 or something

  26. Joe hen says:

    Okay is there a big difference because I really like this rom??

  27. Joe hen says:

    Chris is tried downloading it and it says not enough memory, any ideas????

    • Chris says:

      then you must dont have enough space on your phone internal sd..
      which means you must use an external (as in removable) sd if u have one, go back and try to download it again only this time save to your external sd..
      and if all else fails then u can always stay with that rom u are on because that updated zip doesnt bring much needed features

  28. Joe hen says:

    Okay thanks man big help. I got it downloaded. Just gotta install in recovery. Thanks

  29. kervaughn meltz says:

    Could I use siyah kernel with this

  30. Joe hen says:

  31. Sami says:

    Greate ROM but It mest up my Unlock Code. I Downloaded Galaxy Unlock from Play Store and it work But Everytime i Reboot or Remove battery from my phone I have to run Unlock Precedure,

  32. Chris says:

    U cant brick yo phone unless u use a rom that is wrong for this phone
    As in installing..use the post I left for u on the website Dec.10th…its just that simple!
    Have faith in yourself and use the rom only for the i777 and you will be fine!

  33. Joe hen says:

    So it wipe data factory reset. Then install rom then install gapps. Then reboot

  34. Joe hen says:

    No dalvik wipe or something??

    • Chris says:

      its NOT NECESSARY!..your phone does it automatically when its installing a new jelly bean rom. That something that most people doesnt know

  35. Alex Nater says:

    I have a galaxy s 2 i777 AT & T but with a sim card from t mobile and data edge as I can make out for 3 g 4 g please help I can do Chris,Chessman

    • Chris says:

      The radio inside the i777 is for 1900 2100mz hspda+ signals and Tmobile uses 1700 1800mz hspda signals so rom developers only make roms thats is compatible with that phone company sim card …so in other words?…you will be stuck on “edge” no matter what i777 rom u use. Sorry

  36. joe hen says:

    What kind of wipe? Is wipe /factory reset???

  37. Don says:


    The rom works on my phone. However, it created a sim lock. How do i unlock to use other sim cards?

    configurations…even they both are galaxy s2’s

  43. Joe Hennessy says:

    Hey Chris can I download a new rom onto my phone without a pc and install it in recovery mode. Can I download a rom using my phone instead of my pc and install into my Internal storage.

    • Chris says:

      yes you can on both questions,..most Roms come in a “zipped” form
      so remember not to unzip it…and always make sure the Roms are I777 compatible
      other than that just go in recovery mode and install

  48. Pashin says:


    Thanks for the ROM. Its works great on the i777 S2. However I am facing a unusual problem. The mic seems to be malfunctioning. During a call the person on the other end can barely hear me. tried the usual sound setting but it seems to be a different issue.



  49. Juan Carlos says:

    Pashin… Hit Call button, then Call Settings, Additional settings and UNCHECK “NOISE REDUCTION” . And problem will be solved.

  50. Juan Carlos says:

    Guys… I suggest you all, visit XDA forum, section AT&T Samsung Galaxy S2 and read the comments on the thread. I am sure, will clarify your questions.

  51. wilstib says:

  56. Paco says:

    This ROM is great but once in a while you have to toggle the WiFi ON and OFF to make the WiFi work.

  58. Paco says:
