My Jelly Bean setup

This is about my Jelly bean setup for Samsung S2 9100.  Sorry no candy for you.  I have tried many different versions of Jelly Bean. 4.1, 4.2, 4.2.2 and non official builds.  After a brief foray into the world of KitKat or Android 4.4, I have decided to stick to Android 4.2.2

Precisely speaking Android 4.2.3 stable v2 by infected_ from XDA.  CyanogenMod’s 4.2.2 stable has RIL problem for me. Every few hours, the 3G network would die.  Sometimes putting it in flight mode gets it back, other times requires a reboot.  Most annoying.

Infected’s build is not without headaches. After about 24 hours of operation, I would get the famous Jelly Bean 4.2 freeze.  The phone would just freeze for more than 30 seconds.  You can see it is very slowly grinding through all your previous inputs.  After about a minute, it is back to normal.

Either way, I would get a major bug.  Enter Dorimanx kernel.  It fixes both of the above problems and more!  I once ran for 6 days without a freeze and or a network droput.  With this kernel, the video on the NHK World TV app is blotch free!

In summary, this is my setup:

  1. Android 4.2.3 or CM10.1.3 stable v2 by infected_  link
  2. Dorimanx kernel v9.43 link
