    I rooted my S2 running on ICS 4.0.4. Guess what it made bluetooth stop working,Video player stop showing visuals while playing videos nd what not. Please help me with this.

  22. Nick says:

    Same problem with me but i installed the beats audio rom which was for the tmobile gs2 model. I use the gs3mod ROM seeing as the video and camera and bluetooh works with it but the only thing is my Android version is 4.0.3 instead of 4.0.4 :/ and when i unroot my gs2 it goes back to 4.0.4 but the camera problem and that comes up again so im just sticking with this GS3 ROM till i get some acutual help. If you find out how to fix it can you let me know please??

    Can I use this kernel with resurrection remix JB?

  25. Kaan says:

    hi max i really appreciate your site and your work.
    there is a question which i couldnt get an answer to anywhere.
    i noticed the latest siyah kernel in the siyah kernel website is SiyahKernel S2-v5.0.1.

    can i use that with JB rom? or is it just for ics?
    and if so how is it possible that a lower version of that kernel which you published here supports jb but a more advanced one does not?

    waiting for your answer,
    thnx alot.
