The unofficial ROMs for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean pushed out for high-end smartphones like HTC One X, Samsung Galaxy S III and now available for Galaxy S II, folks. We already shared the previous two and this published post covers the first Jelly Bean ROM for Galaxy S II. Follow the tutor after the jump!
As usual this news comes straight from the XDA-Developers, posted in their forum and developed by LastStandingDroid in which he discussed his Custom ROM for the Galaxy S II after a pretty prominent caps-locked warning message.
Similar words to this ROM, based on the same Android 4.1 Jelly Bean that comes on the Galaxy Nexus devices given away at Google I/O 2012, but uses a modified kernel based on CynogenMod 9. The ROM has plenty of issues and needs a lot of work to do, because of the short development time and lacks of proper resources.
Basically on this ROM, WiFi, Bluetooth, Camera, Google Search and SuperUser access doesn’t work. Or it can’t be used as a daily driver though; it is highly recommended that to stay away from the said ROM unless you know the risk factors involved and are intent on trying out Jelly Bean’s new features on your S II or any other supported Android smartphone.
Where Google has recently announced the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at annual I/O 2012 keynote. It’s a big upgrade than 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, as the new features aren’t particularly game-changing though. Still, the best features brings Project Better, improved voice search, top notifications and many more.
Keeping in mind and making a note, interested people can check out Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for your Galaxy S II, for that you have to visit the XDA-Developers thread for more information. Pre-requisites include a rooted Galaxy S II and ClockworkMod 5.x.x.x. The overall method is the usual flash from ClockworkMod Recovery fare.
Before downloading and installing Android Jelly Bean on to your Samsung Galaxy S II, make sure to backup your device (nandroid backup) in case if the things goes wrong.
