Samsung Galaxy S II Finally Receives CyanogenMod

July 21, 2011

Who wants some Bacon! The Samsung Galaxy S II now has CyanogenMod 7. The first nightly has finally hit the download mirrors and is available now. Back in June Samsung sent a few lucky developers of CM the super phone Galaxy S II and basically invited them to hack it up and get CM7 running on it. The team did just that and as a result we all benefit.

We knew nightly builds were coming soon and the group called teamhacksung have been talking about it plenty on Twitter and Google+ but now it is finally here. They posted a video showing its speed and I'll add that below just to be nice.

As always you are flashing a custom ROM and therefore are responsible for any problems that may arise, that includes if the phone starts on fire (it wont). Basically know what you are doing, and have fun. For all the info, links, and full details hit up the XDA thread. The rules are simple as you need to be rooted and just flash the latest nightly like any other ROM. It is recommended that you wipe and clear data/cache if coming from a different ROM. Again here is the direct download page for CM7 on the SGSII.

    Do keep in mind that some things don’t work.
    For example:
    Bluetooth

    Video playback – many formats are not recognized

    Video recording – especially HD

    Vibration and haptic feedback can be better

    Auto brightness

    TVout

    FMRadio

    Compass issues

    Some users lose network connection after sending a SMS (all on T-Mobile Austria it seems?)

    Some users report photos on the external SD-card seem to get deleted

    Issues when using the 2G/3G-Switch, which can only be solved by a wipe and reflash

    Overheating problems, caused by some misbehaving app, most probably Mediascanner/DRM

    Media volumes (volume in general maybe)

    USB host mode

      It is a nightly, and the first one at that…  That’s why I wait until a more complete version is released.

    Yup being a first nightly you might want to wait a week or so. This is for the brave
