While the Samsung Galaxy S II is all set to receive its due share of Ice Cream Sandwichofficially sometimes this quarter, waiting is not always an option for eager and avid Androidfans. There have been a few leaks of ICS for the Galaxy S II before but this time, the device gets Android 4.0.3 (I9100XXLPB) where the build date is the 29th of January, and while still an Alpha/Beta release, this ROM is looking really stable and ready to be used as a daily ROM according to the folks over at Sammobile.
There have been a few changes to the ROM, compared to the XXLP6 build. The interface has some kind of 3D scrolling effect, the battery life is a lot better compared to the earlier builds and possibly more. Facelock, performance and touch etc., seem to be the same as XXLP6.
That said, installation of this ROM, has been mad a breeze by XDA-Developers forum member wanamwho has released a deodexed and rooted version of this ROM while keeping it totally stock otherwise, thus allowing you to flash it via ClockworkMod recovery.
Now that you understand what you’re dealing with here, and want to give this ROM a run on your Galaxy S II, here’s how you can do that.
