PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This past week and this weekend I've finally found the time to enter into the colorful world of custom Android ROMs. After figuring out just how insanely great and awesome ClockWorkMod Recovery is, I set about to figure out what the best Ice Cream Sandwich ROM is for the Galaxy SII. While the answer to that question became clear quite quickly, this answer also gave rise to a whole bunch of other questions.

CyanogenMod rocks

I replaced the firmware on my galaxy with CyanogenMod a while back. Not only is it a lot faster than the stock firmware but it's also less buggy.

For ex. the GPS never worked with any official firmware from samsung, it simply wouldn't lock on my posistion. Samsung must know about this problem, it's very common (just google "galaxy gps problem")! After flashing cyanogenMod 7.2 it finally started working! Wifi is also more stable now. With the stock firmware I had to reboot the phone occasionally to get the wifi working. Not anymore.

It seems samsung did a really crap job with this firmware.
