For this week’s T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989 ROM of the week, check out Shadow ROM.

Based on latest T-Mobile official firmware on Android 4.1.2, Shadow ROM brings you total minimalistic experience with zero bloatware while giving you some great performance tweaks and battery life.

Since this ROM is based on official firmware, you will certainly get Wifi-Calling working out of the box with optimized file system for Jelly Bean so you will have more space for your system resources. According to the developer:

Very light and even somewhat future proofed… How, you ask?

Well I simply didn’t include apps that were in the /system or /preload tray that are easy to update on PlayStore.

So what ends up happening is our device has an old version in system/apps and a newer version is in /data using space and resources in both folders.
Gnow for instance will have two copies [one old one new] as soon as we update if its included in the system/app.

Don’t include it and it goes to /data only and works like a charm.

That being said I made excellent use of these folders we have on 4.1.2 .

Also some notable features include wifi hotspot working out of the box, custom boot animation, startup/shutdown sounds, and Nexus AOKP touch sounds.

Overall, you will find this ROM super fast with speed tweaks and absolutely no bloatware whatsoever.

If this is something that interests you, check it out this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
