Samsung Galaxy S2 – Jelly Bean Alpha CM10

Ever since Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) was announced, I hoped it would be successfully ported to my beloved Galaxy S2.

There are rumours that Samsung is working on an official version, which could be out by Christmas.

If you cant wait that long, the amazing TeamHacksung Devs over at XDA have got a pretty much fully working ROM.

I have been running the Alpha’s for quite a while now, the early versions were a little clunky, with RIL ( phone signal) crashes, and the media scanner running constantly. However the latest build seems to have fixed most of the issues I had. Sure, there are still a couple of things to be fixed, the ‘hwcomposer’ doesn’t work properly, so you wont get the full ‘project butter’ experience, but CM10 is still smooth!

One of the major plus points is that you can use ‘Google Now’, which can be used to set alarms, perform searches, and even play music all by using voice commands.
