Android 4.0.3 Stable Ice Cream Sandwich firmware 5.0 with TouchWiz available for the Samsung S2 Galaxy


Samsung S2 Galaxy owners already have a first beta version of  Android Ice Cream Sandwich  install last year. However, this version still contained some errors and was not necessarily intended for everyday use. But in the new year, two more Android 4.0.x firmwares were asked to download. Also a new version of CyanogenMod 9 for the Galaxy S2 is at the xda-developers showed up. This is rather unstable, in contrast to the new ROM with Android 4.0.3 and TouchWiz 5.0.

Both firmware versions are equipped with Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface 5.0. For this reason, these ROMs are not really seeing how Android Ice Cream Sandwich, probably more like the previous versions of Android Gingerbread. So that these ROMs are really a matter of taste, because if you really want to use Android 4.0, it is advisable to wait a while until another firmware available.

However, the new KP8-ROM can already be used for everyday use and, thanks to integrated hardware acceleration, the firmware runs even faster than most versions of Gingerbread. Even if the firmware SamMobile ascribes the everyday practicality, yet many users complain of problems with Facebook Unlock, W-LAN, crashes and occasional reboots.
