Samsung Galaxy II owners have a reason to smile today. The much awaited Ice-cream Sandwich is here for Galaxy S II. Since the day when ICS was released, people who own the best Android Smartphone wanted a quick update to ICS as a lot of them were overjoyed with the new features. Since then, several ICS AOSP ROMs have hit the internet but none of them were stable enough to make its mark. There were major problems with the earlier builds and some graphical glitches too.
Sammobile has released an Ice-cream Sandwich XXKP1 firmware Android version 4.0.1 which has a built date of December 7th, 2011. So today we have an official leak by the team of Sammobile itself which have a habit of releasing such leaks before the actual release.
The ROM mentioned is a custom Samsung build and not a stock build.
Coming to the custom ROM, TouchWiz has been retained by the team but the Android version is 4.0.1. The lock mechanism is a circular one, found on Honeycomb and ICS devices. Minor tweaks with the UI have been made. The basic stuff like calling, messaging, internet browsing and apps are all supposed to be running fine. However you may experience a few minor hang-ups and may have to force close some running apps.
Face unlock can be seen in the security menu too. Although we couldn’t manage to see any glimpse of people app.
Here’s a video of the ROM in action
Warning: If you only flash stock ROMs do not flash this ROM. You will lose your warranty because when you flash this ROM with “unsecure” kernel the phone thinks its “CUSTOM”.
