Galaxy S2 GT-i9100

For GT-i9100, check out CyanFox ROM, built on CM11 and everything working out of the box including calls, data, camera, camcorder, video, sensors, wifi, gps, etc… I do recommend trying this build out as daily driver since everything is working and you should find a pleasant Android 4.4 KitKat experience.

Omni ROM with Android 4.4 KitKat for Galaxy S2 GT-i9100!

For those of you who have been waiting for Android 4.4 KitKat ROM, you can definitely try out the latest Omni ROM, which comes with Android 4.4 KitKat.

Omni ROM is a “preview” ROM and video replay is not working on this ROM so I do not recommend it as a daily driver.  BUT, you can easily make a backup ROM before installing this ROM, try it out, then restore your ROM.
