For this week’s T-Mobile Galaxy S2 ROM of the Week, check out latest AOKP ROM with Android 4.4.4 along with latest Uber kernel with up to 2Ghz overclocking support. (Updated 9/15/2014)
Although this isn’t official AOKP (as there’s no more official builds for T-Mobile S2), it’s a solid performer and you can expect to get all of latest Android 4.4.4 AOKP features along with full ROM Control. Add in the latest Uber kernel (and overclock to 1.89Ghz, my recommendations setting, use TricksterMOD App on Play Store) and you have a fast-performing custom ROM with the latest and greatest Android 4.4.4 custom ROM tweaks/features.
Of course, many of you probably have tried previous versions of AOKP ROM and I know many of you love it. This isn’t any different but better than ever with the latest Android 4.4.4. Since Android 4.4.4 has been out for quite awhile now, you can expect nice stability and everything working out of the box.
If you are looking for such a combo with great stability, speed, and customization, definitely give this guy a go this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
