There are risks involved with installing customs, and if you do not do the right thing, you may end up with an unusable phone. Save all your data beforehand. Neither AndroidPIT nor I can be held responsible for anything.

CyanogenMod 11 is in the development phase, the version may still have a lot of bugs, and its installation and use is therefore reserved for an audience of connoisseurs. It's tempting to get started, so you can take advantage of KitKat now on the excellent terminal S2, but if you do not know exactly what you are doing, do not try the operation.


We will leave the following postulate: your Samsung Galaxy S2 i9100 is root, and you have made a backup of your system beforehand, which you then copied to your PC or any other external media. Likewise save your data, we will erase them during the manipulation.

FYI, the recommended recovery with KitKat is given in the downloads.

To sum up:

  • root
  • NANdroid backup
  • Backup of important data and applications

To root your Galaxy S2, go to the appropriate forum section: Samsung Galaxy S2 – Root / Roma Customs.

Since we are root, we will use the good old method of custom recovery. As a reminder, here is the procedure:

1. Download the two zip files given above.

2. Place them on the root of your S2.

3. turn off the Galaxy S2 and reboot it in recovery mode (home + power + volume up to the third vibration)

4. Perform a wipe, selecting and validating the otpion "wipe data / factory reset"and then"wipe cache".

5. Then select "install zip from sdcard"and then"choose zip from sdcard"(The names of these menus may vary depending on the version of CWM).

6. Get the rom file, and then click on "Yes" to validate.

7. In the same way, flash the gapps now.

8. Return to the main menu and select "reboot system now".

The first reboot on Android 4.4 KitKat can take a few minutes. Give us your impressions on this new version!
