    Has anyone tried it yet?

    • Aboud says:

      Yes ,, its very nice Rom but has a problem with Secuirty it has a laggy Problem every 10 times u put ur Pin or patteren it resets The Secuirty to silde :S and Paare Of Programs wont install Like ( Magic Piano “Smule” and some other Programs) … but it really Turns ur GS2 to a real GS3 Experiance .. Recommended

    • Reboot says:

      Yes. I installed this yesterday. I don’t use a PIN and therefore have not ran into any troubles as mentioned by Aboud. This is the smoothest most responsive ROM I have used so far. It is practically stock, no customization (that I have found yet) but it is extremely fast and smooth. Touchwiz is actually not bad in this one. I like the Samsung Apps so I am really enjoying this ROM.

    • tomy says:

      Nice rom,but it has bug;( every time i use widget,or add something new on other screens,after some time massive crashes starting,anyway i hope it will be updated,touchwiz ux is the best

  10. 4mula says:

    Good rom. Main thing stopping it from being my daily drver is the phone ap as others have mentioned. I can use a rom where the phone crashes after each call. ; p. The name of contact displayed when on call is not properly aligned.

  11. john says:

    Loving this so far……Have tried a few ROMS in the past and this is my fav so far…..Only thing I couldnt get to install was S Voice.apk -tries to install but comes up with application not installed…

    Other than that ….brilliant 🙂

  12. Chaitanya says:

    I have installed it. But it force closes every time there is an incoming call. There are other apps also where it is getting force closed. I had to go back to my stock ROM

  13. john says:

    So can the ROM do 3 photos per sec and 6 photos per sec on burst?

  14. Dave says:

    Need help here guys…

    1) Installed Salman…..but after it loads, and I get the main screen, then every 2 seconds, keeps saying something like process stopped….damn irritating….not sure why I’m getting this error. And I do not see any Settings…or it takes forever to load….but the process or something like that keeps occuring every few seconds….any ideas???

    2) Installed the Resur 2.4.1 (which I love) , it cannot find my internal HD so my computer cannot read it and neither can wireless pro app, so can’t transfer files. HELP!!!

    can ANYONE help with these 2 things?

    thanks in advance,


    • Sam aka Busy says:

      Hey Dave,

      I’m no pro by any means but which kernel are you using…. i had bugs and was on CF kernel (cant quite remember) but i discovered the Siyah kernel has dual boot function… i flashed to this and have had no faults at all since doing so…I’m using Siyah 3.3.2 with RR 2.4.1 as primary ROM, downloading Salman right now to give a try…

    • Sam aka Busy says:

      I learned, in basic terms, that the Kernel is the “middle man” between the ROM and Hardware. i.e The rom/software asks the kernel to tell the hardware to play a sound/vibrate, or possibly in your case the SD card being there…..

    • anjo says:

      Did you clear cache/wipe out data

  15. S# says:

    love it so so much, thank you so so much

    for Svoice, search for this one :, it work great for me :

  16. Dave says:

    Hi Sam,

    Thanks for the email…I tried that too (Siyah kernel)….didn’t work.

    It keeps giving me this error message when Salman ROM loads up:

    “Unfortunately, Messager has stopped”
    “Unfortunatley, the process has stopped”
    “Unfortunately, the process android.process.acore has stopped”
    “Unfortunaely, Contacts has stopped”

    I have never had such problems before so am really confused why they are occuring.

    Could someone please suggest how I can rectify this?

    I’d appreciate some simple step by step instructions as I’m not as experienced as some of you are.

    Thanks in advance,


    • Max says:

      Do a fresh re-install.

      • Dave says:

        Hi Max,

        I tried a fresh re-install of Salman ROM (wiping Dalvik and cache etc).

        Same deal.

        I get the following errors once it loads AFTER the lockscreen

        “Unfortunately, Messager has stopped”
        “Unfortunatley, the process has stopped”
        “Unfortunately, the process android.process.acore has stopped”
        “Unfortunaely, Contacts has stopped”

        And this error I get every 5 seconds or so:

        “Unfortunately, the process android.process.acore has stopped”

        And everything is SUPER SLOW….even when I press Settings etc…REALLY slow.

        I’m really stumped…..the Res 2.4.1. works great and is really fast.

        But I do want to try out this Salman Rom.

        Any ideas on what could be causing the above error messages?

        Any ideas on how to fix it? Already tried a fresh install.

        If Anyone knows how to fix this PLEASE let me know.

        Thanks in advance,


  17. Bjorn says:

    I’ve installed Salman as a second ROM and sort of liked it. Several problems though:
    1. After using the phone as a phone (yes, really, I do that sometimes), the screen colors go completely haywire.
    2. Apps requiring root permission do not function.
    3. I can’t find a way to reboot without just shutting down.
    I think I’ll wait until the next version comes out. I do prefer the Resurrection Remix ROM to this one so far.

    • Max says:

      1. that could just be your screen, it happened to my i9100.
      2. just flash supersu zip files in cwm.
      3. Battery pull.

  18. Cosy says:

    Hey Max.
    Love the site and the reviews.

    Been running this Rom for a couple of days. As much as I like it, the battery just drains way too fast. With my Darky Stock ICS rom I get anywhere between 24-36hrs whereas Salman Rom managed 11hrs. I really love these new Roms (Resurrection Remix inc.) but the battery drain is always a killer.

    Am I missing something with these? Surely most of you guys aren’t settling with 11-12 hrs battery life?


    • Arnav says:

      Yaa i agree with you the battery drains faster than before,is there anything we can do to overcome this battery problem?

  19. hanis says:

    Hello… I downloaded this from and it’s pretty wicked awesome. Buttttt… my notification won’t work
    What happened? Can I fix this? How? So many questions. When there’s a message, it won’t tell me on the notification bar at the top… but when I pull it down, it’s there.. I’m like… whaatt??? So can It be fixed? Thank you.

  20. pats says:

    had the same issue with dailer, used to freeze the phone after making every call..

    then did a hard reset, wiped system cache n dalvik cache, flashed the phone again with SalmanROM, did all wipes again …

    now the phone’s working great ..

  21. Jeff says:

    I love this rom so much! It’s very stable, but the battery life is not so good 🙁

  22. Nivi says:

    Hi zedo,
    I need ur help. My S2 stop going into usb mode when i connect my s2 with cable. the msg in notification dont come. and i m unable to transfer data into my phone. kindly help me in this matter.

    Thanks & Regards,

  23. Shyguy23 says:

    This ROM is probably the best ever ……..! Works perfectly just like the S3 is meant to work. Great ROM……!!!

  29. Dave says:

    Can anyone help?

    I am currently using the Res Remix 2.4.1. as Salman ROM is giving me MAJOR problems

    Everything is working fine but for some reason the CALENDAR is not working and not syncing.

    1) All my email and calendars are via google mail
    2) Everything syncs fine like my emails etc, but not the calendar. (infact it doesn’t even show up on Calendar apps). I have to find the Calendar via the Search function of the phone…its not in my apps. I normally use Business Calendar Free for my calendar….but even that has ZERO calendars showing.
    3) I’ve done the Apps, Calendar Data wipe, Gmail wipe, Calendar Storage wipe etc. but still not working
    4) Tried gapps fixer, doesn’t work. Flashed Siyah kernel, didn’t work.
    5) Wiped everything, reinstalled the Res 2.4.1. ROM still didn’t work.
    6) Deleted ALL my Gmail accounts and added it again, but same issue….everything syncs EXCEPT the calendar.
    7) When I go to Calendar or Business Calendar Free, under the Calendar section, NO CALENDARS show up.
    8) Btw, there’s nothing wrong with the Gmail syncing itself, as everything syncs perfectly on my desktop computer (including all the calendar entries etc)….so its a problem with the phone settings etc.

    I really don’t want to do a factory reset and then have to root etc all over again, so I really hope one of you can help.

    I’ve spent over 6 hours on XDA forums, and google etc. and am at my wits end!!!

    Can anyone help me PLEASE?



    • Newbieeee says:
