I have been extensively testing many Android 5.1.1 ROMs for the AT&T Galaxy S2 SGH-i777 lately. One of the biggest bugs with Android 5.1.1 ROMs for the SGH-i777 model is the absence of audio when talking on the phone. This is circumvented on Android 5.1.1 by simply toggling the speaker on and off quickly. This is sorta annoying for those of you who talk a lot on your phone but if you don’t mind that, you can enjoy all the goodness of Android 5.1.1.
Looking for a good Android 5.1 Lollipop ROM for your Galaxy S2 GT-i9100?
Check out the CM12.1S ROM, which is a hybrid of CM12S ROM from OnePlus One and latest Android 5.1.
This ROM features latest CyanogenMod CM12.1 Android 5.1 features along with OnePlus One camera, AudioFX, Screencast (screen recording app), and Hexo theme. I’ve tried many of the latest CM12.1 and Android 5.1/5.1.1 ROMs in the past week but found this ROM to be most stable with everything working out of the box except Netflix video playback.

I know many of you asked me on how to root AT&T Galaxy S2 Skyrocket SGH-i727 but I don’t have that model.
BUT, the steps to rooting is nearly identical to T-Mobile Galaxy S2 SGH-T989 but you use a different recovery.
To root AT&T Galaxy S2 Skyrocket SGH-i727, simply follow the latest T-Mobile Galaxy S2 root method BUT for Step 6, instead of using “recovery-cmw-hercules.tar”, use the file “SkyrocketCWM188.8.131.52.tar”!
