Install Snapdragon S2 ROM On Galaxy S2
Edited by Mohsin, Charmed, Eng, Francomario and 2 others
I owned a Galaxy S2 for a long time, liked everything about it, but what I thought that the next Android update will bring Multi-Windows concept in Galaxy S2 like it is on Galaxy S4 or Galaxy Note2, I tried many custom ROMs but still no Multi-Windows, I did find a Multi window browser in Play Store but it's no better than the default one. So, after 3 months of searching I finally found a ROM that has Multi-window concept and almost every Application can support it. It took me a lot of time and I don't want anyone else to suffer as I did so I will share it with you people. In this article I will show you how to install Snapdragon S2 ROM for Galaxy S2.

Questions and Answers
Can you please help me with after rebooting my phone with Snapdragon ROM?
I installed the snapdragon ROM for my Galaxy S2 and when I rebooted the phone afterwards , it just went pass the Dorimax sign and the Galaxy S4 boot animation, then my phone turned off, sometimes it goes into a boot loop. Sometimes there is nothing on the screen after the failed boot, if I touch the home button, the menu and back buttons glow. I do not know what to do. Please help me.
Most likely part of the Snapdragon ROM did not install properly, and so you have a corrupted installation of the Snapdragon ROM on your Samsung Galaxy S2. To correct this, wipe your data and restart the update process.
