Download DarkyROM2 ROM for Samsung Galaxy S2 (CWM)

Yeah… We have official Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread firmware for Samsung Galaxy S II finally. XXKI3 firmware is the latest official leak Samsung Galaxy S2 firmware. And DarkyROM2 is the first custom firmware that I tried based on XXKI3. I read that stock XXKI3 firmware can easily pass 4,000 Quadrant score. Custom firmware should be better, right? Let’s find out…

DarkyROM2 ROM for Samsung Galaxy S2

Quadrant score
AOSP 3D Launcher
Software information

Err… Why does the Quadrant score is not getting near 4k as I read? Is the SuperCore 2.0 kernel slowing it down? Anyway, this build also includes AOSP 3D Launcher on top of stock TouchWiz Launcher.

  1. I’ve tried to update the firmawre on my rooted SGS2 without any luck. After the phone reboots, the error message states I need to do it via kies (which does’t work) or contact a snasumg service centre. Is there anyway to unroot?

    Thanks in Advance for your help!


  2. Hi,
    i’ve tried many different and tested with quadrant:

    FW cyanogen 7.1.0 cpu overclock 1600 score 3850
    XXKI3 with chainfire kernel and overclock 1400 score 4550
    XXKI3 with supercore kernel and overclock 1400 score ca 2800, these was a test to view different result..
    Now i don’t think to pass on Darkys after view your result

  3. Hi there. I’m currently holding a Samsung S2 i9100 with:
    Baseband i9100XXKI4

    I want to know how to root my device in order to use DarkyRom 2. Guide please. And I found out that the wifi connectivity is weak as well as the network connection. Do I need to upgrade the firmware version as well?
