Download VillainROM for Samsung Galaxy S2 (CWM)

VillainROM is very new to me that coming from HTC HD2. However, it should not be unfamiliar with most others because VillainROM is one of the most popular custom ROM for Samsung Galaxy S II. Therefore, I picked VillainROM as my first custom CWM firmware to try. What makes VillainROM special? Based on VillainROM v2.4.2, it is fully deodexed. So you can apply custom theme but stock browser will lag. Fully resigned, but with Samsung apps left using stock signatures. You still have the stock TouchWiz from Samsung. And rest assures that it is rooted and added with Busybox and Superuser. Ninphetamine kernel that supports BLN is included too.

  1. Dear Jayce,

    I flashed custom rom but not getting ‘H’ or’3G’ signal after rebooting. I will only get ‘E’ after 5 min of rebooting. Any idea how to fix? Thanks.

  2. Hi jayce,

    First i like you to know that im always checking your forum and i learned some useful tips on my device.
    But now i need to consult on your opinion regarding bootloop on galaxy s2 ics. I flash different firmware into my device and i just notice that my bootloop was gone. I want to fix this. Rightnow im using.

    baseband i9100xxlpq
    kernelversion 3.0.15-i9100xwlpd-cl524746

    Can you help me. Many thanks.

      • When i turn off my device it goes to turn off directly without confirmation of airplane mode, silent, or reboot etc. and i also notice that all my lock screen are not working. so i did is just download GO Locker so i could u lock my screen. i hope i could attach screen shot. i am checking some images but i could find any one to show what is missing. i hope you could help me on this. thanks jayce in advance.

            • well think i should stick on what i have. besides the 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich Firmware on Samsung Galaxy S II now. official Android 4.0.4 ICS Firmware for Samsung Galaxy S2 ~ XXLQ5 Firmware has a lot of problem and it can soft brick my device. I think XWLPD 4.0.3 has way a lot better.
