For this week’s ROM of the week on the Galaxy S2 GT-i9100 (or i9100P NFC works), check out the Lion Jelly Bean ROM.

Based off latest XXLSJ build, the Lion Jelly Bean ROM features cool stuff like transparent multi-window mod, Android 4.2 camera, Pop-up browser, Sony Walkman app, AC!D audio app, and some more. This ROM also features the same torch shortcut on older AOKP ICS ROMs where you can hold down the Home button on the lockscreen to enable your flashlight.

Try it out for this week and let me know what you think!

    • astralbee says:

      I haven’t tried this rom, but I did try the new alliance rom and didn’t have a good experience. Coming from RR 3.1.2 it was noticeably slower and my widgets kept randomly resizing themselves. Was back on RR within a day. Used to be that roms based on stock were more stable, but my experience has been that recently it seems the opposite is true.

  10. Hanis says:

    I tried it already. really smooth i have to say but some apps like Zarchiever that was installed with it crashed when opened. my phone froze for a minute during set up. how weird. As for the battery life pretty OK. Better than Rainbox. CONCLUSION: pretty awesome. 3 and a half grace faces.

  21. chandu says:

    Flashed v1.03.
    1. Google Talk missing
    2. Unable to add cloud account. Settings->Cloud->Add account

  22. guy says:

    why there is no shutter sound of camera?
    how can i enable it?

  23. Boban says:

    Is anyone getting a problem with this ROM when you want to unlock the screen but the phone doesn`t react and then I must to constantly press power key to be able to unlock screen by swiping?

  24. Boban says:

    No sound. Exept for the multitasking I’m not very pleased with this rom. Leaked version is much faster.

  25. kabz says:

    This is a great rom. A pure Samsung Touch wiz and multi task experiance. Its like Ive upgraded my phone, without the hardware. Mulit-tasking works great, slight lag on load on the occations. Overall fairly smooth. The samsung keyboard seems to crash at the odd times, therefore ive replaced it with thum-keyboard.

    I prefer this from the Rainbox Rom as it has original themes to the Samsung brand built in and the multi-task tab is transparent (a major inprovement in my eyes).

    I cant complain about the battery life as it lasts over a day with heavy usage (Camera, web, widgets – not gaming). Doesnt beat Ressurection Remix on battery life tho, but it has more “show off” features.

  26. soufiane says:

    great rom thanks but why there is no google talk, and how can we install it ??

  27. Armands says:

    Why do you need the shutter sound…. I always turning it of, but I don’t know, mabey thats just me 😀
    Everything about this Rom is working awesom, battery life is longer than from leaked version, It’s working faster, loads of new cool stuff, but still there is only one thing that disapoints me, that it don’t have allshere, mabey you can help me to get it, couse I tried but with no results.
    Thanks a lot for now, the best rom……

    Hi Leeomendes,
    was wondering if you or anyone else were having problems with sending or receiving MMS. I have sent MMS but when i try and go to the messaging section of the phone i.e to the person i have sent it to the phone screen goes black then an error message comes up saying something along the lines of Messaging client has unexpectadely shut down. This also happens when i receive an MMS and then i cannot view any text messages as the phone errors everytime…..i have looked at tinkering with the setting but to no avail.

    would appreciate any help from anyone………running V1.3

    • jure says:

      I have the exactly same problem. Pleas tell that version 1.6 would not have those esuies:)
      And i hope that it will be out soon:)

  64. tedy says:

    nice rom. i’m using V1.3 and quite happy to use all phone’s features(video call, wifi direct, mms, etc) but i have problems:
    1. with the data connection. to be more specific, there is no data connection. i’ve tried with the default xxlq6 modem driver and with the bulp8 modem (i’m on vodafone romania). when i activate the mobile data, the icon is green, but there is no connection. i checked the apn settings and there are ok. i tried to delete the apn and create one by hand. no success…
    2. the Sync icon from the notification panel is missing although is selected in the specific settings section. I’ve noticed that the sync option is not present in the settings/accounts section. could that be the problem?
    3. the default sms application has a bug when trying to send a mms. when i attache a photo and try to send, i receive the message :”unfortunately, Messaging has stopped”. i succeded to send mms with the go sms pro.
    Strange thing is that when i send mms with go sms pro, having the mobile data activated (but no connection), when the sending begins, the icon representig data transfer appears and the mms leaves my phone “over the Radio Waves”. so, is there a problem with the reading of the AP?

Thanks Lion

  67. funky knuckles says:

    installed about 2 hours ago all seems good multi window good no force closes see how long battery last will comment tomorow but all in all a very good rom

  68. funky knuckles says:

    i installed version 1 do i need to wipe to install version 1.3? thanks

  69. simon says:

    Hi I have installed the Rom using Odin and it has worked fine but it doesnt have any of the extra features like the side menu bar or the other apps like the 2 cameras etc? I have a Galaxy S2, do I need to do something with the other files that came with the Lion Jelly Bean rom to get them on my S2?

    • tedy says:

      What version did you installed? V.1.3? The “side menu bar” aka multi window 😉 must be activated from settings -> Display -> Multi window. Applying that will start the service. To view the left app bar, you must long press the back key (after pressing, it is possible to take few seconds until is appears for the first time).
      How is works: drag and drop applications from the vertical bar on the desktop and you will see the splitscreen with the 2 app running simultaneously on your screen. You can switch up/down or down/up.
      + you can move the small vertical bar indicator by long pressing on it and slide it where is confortable for you. About the camera applications, i have both of them includet with the 1.3 version: the one with photosphere and the default one. The only “forgotten” application is the GTalk but you can force install it by downloading the apk, copying it in the system / app folder, check the permisions (RW/R/R) and reboot. And there you have a fully functional SGS2 with all the features with one greate ROM: the LION ROM V1.3 😀

    10/10 for the vid on how to btw.. many many thanks
