VillainROM 2.1 The ROM Noonski couldn't drain the battery on.
The latest custom ROM from VillainROM for the SGS2 is VillainROM 2.1. It's based on XXKG2 leaked firmware. Thanks to the Darkyy guys for getting their mits on it, and to their "source"
First of all, if you are upgrading from VillainROM 1.2 or above, just flash this from CF-Root version of CWM. I suggest a backup first. A wipe is not required, but if you have issues, is suggested. I updated without a wipe, and no issues here.
If you are installing from another ROM, or stock ROM, you need to be using the CF-Root kernel, as applicable for your current ROM. You can find CF-Root and instructions at http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1103399
When using this ROM, I suggest the XWKG1 CF-Root kernel, from post 4 of Chainfire's thread, until a KG2 version is available
ROM itself is rooted
XXKG2 deodexed firmware
Fully resigned, but with Samsung apps left using stock signatures
No browser lag (using the odexed framework and browser method, all applications are deodexed) - method pioneered by (I believe) LeoMar75
Busybox added (CF Root does this)
