For this week’s T-Mobile Galaxy S2 ROM of the Week, check out the latest Evervolv ROM.
Based on latest Android 4.4.4 KitKat, Evervolv ROM brings you the best in class for stability and speed without sacrificing battery life.
If stability, performance, and battery life is important to you, this is the ROM for you.
Evervolv ROM also ships with customization options for your interface, lockscreen, status bar, and some more. It’s not as feature-packed as some of the other AOSP ROMs out there but then again, I find this ROM more stable and faster than most AOSP ROMs out right now so definitely dip into Evervolv this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
Download Android 4.4.4 Micro Gapps (DO NOT USE STOCK REGULAR GAPPS!!!)
