For this week’s ROM of the week for Galaxy S2 GT-i9100, SGH-i777, and SGH-T989, check out CM11 ROM.

Galaxy S2 GT-i9100

For GT-i9100, check out CyanFox ROM, built on CM11 and everything working out of the box including calls, data, camera, camcorder, video, sensors, wifi, gps, etc… I do recommend trying this build out as daily driver since everything is working and you should find a pleasant Android 4.4 KitKat experience.

Download:

Download CyanROM Android 4.4 Gapps (do not use other Gapps you will FC!)

Please follow How to Install Android 4.4 KitKat ROM on Galaxy S2!

AT&T Galaxy S2 SGH-i777

For AT&T Galaxy S2 SGH-i777, check out ported version of CM11. This build is pretty solid except video camcorder is not working and also battery stats are broken. But if you don’t take lots of videos (but still camera works) and you don’t mind the broken battery stats, you may be able to use/test it as daily driver.

T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989

For T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989, check out CM11 ROM. This build is much more stable than the BeanStalk ROM with Android 4.4 we featured last week (absolutely no FCs) but it does have a broken camcorder(still camera works fine). If you don’t mind the broken camcorder, you can also use this as a daily driver.

BEFORE INSTALLING, UPGRADE your CWM Recovery to latest version by downloading the zip and installing with your CWM recovery:

Download and install CWM Recovery 6.0.4.3 for KitKat custom ROMs

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.)

Overall, Android 4.4 KitKat custom ROMs for Galaxy S2 ROMs are coming really close to being bug-free, especially considering the GT-i9100 essentially has a bug-free ROM like CyanFox ROM. At the worst, you can always make a backup ROM of your current ROM, try out the ROM, then revert back.

So, definitely give CM11 ROM a go this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
