If you’re using the AT&T branded Samsung Galaxy S2, and would rather wait to make the jump to Android 4.0 or Ice Cream Sandwich, till a nice, stable build, with no bugs comes out, you may want to try this awesome looking ROM from XDA member rav4kar, who has modified the Criskelo ROM using the Flash-aholic tool, and added his own performance enhancing mods and tweaks to the base ROM, including a new kernel. And guess what, it is Ice Cream Sandwich themed, and themed so well that it looks almost exactly like the real thing. The stability of Gingerbread with the looks of Ice Cream Sandwich — Perfect combo, I must say!!
