For this week’s Galaxy S2 ROM of the week, check out ParanoidAndroid ROM with latest HALO floating notifications/overlay multi-tasking. Available for GT-i9100, T-Mobile SGH-T989, AT&T SGH-i777 and SGH-i727, ParanoidAndroid ROM brings you the a brand, new way of dealing with your notifications.
Of course, don’t forget ParanoidAndroid ROM is originally well known for its abilities to run the UI or your favorite apps in Phone/Tablet mode with its Paranoid Android Hybrid settings.
HALO floating notifications can be a lot of fun, especially being able to get back to people without leaving the app you are currently running. HALO allows you to run your SMS, Facebook, Google+, Twitter, or any apps as an overlay on top of any app you are running.
E.g. If you are browsing the web, you can easily respond to your friends via SMS text messages then get back right on browsing the web without switching between SMS text app and your browser. Without HALO, your phone would have a slight delay in re-drawing/refreshing the browser after replying to your friends.
This can be very useful in cases when you need certain apps running in the background that require real-time input from the user.
If you don’t want to install a new ROM to get this new HALO feature, you can also try the Floating Notications app, which you can install on any Android device.
If you haven’t tried ParanoidAndroid ROM or the HALO feature, give this ROM a try this weekend and do let me know what you think!
To install, reboot into recovery, wipe data/factory reset (unless coming from ParanoidAndroid ROM), install ROM, install Gapps, and reboot.
