In July, AOKP ROM featuring CM10 Kernel was ported on Galaxy S2. The Build-1 custom ROM is unofficial and hence there could be some bugs and issues.

Take a look at the steps below on how to install the AOKP Build 1 on Samsung Galaxy S2 i9100. IBTimes UK advises users to proceed at their own risk and reiterate we will not be held responsible for any consequences. We advise users to make a back-up of all data including APN settings before the installation.

Pre-requisites: Please keep in mind that the method is compatible only with the Samsung Galaxy S2 i9100. Hence, do not make an attempt to try it on any other device. In order to check the model go to Settings > About phone. The method will wipe away all the data, settings and apps.
