    Damn, that is very nice, son!

    I may have to start paying for apps

    I just have the standard CM7 one, ugly, but functional and smooth:


    I really want to get a honeycomb-style circular one, or the ICS slider, which looks awesome.

    Also,
    Thank you :hat2:

    Well if you do decide to change you lockscreen, then I would recommend WidgetLocker; it comes with Honeycomb and ICS themes and you can get other themes, as I did :borat:

    Honestly, probably not, I've yet to try VillianROM, and seeing as it was the first custom ROM out for the GS2 I'll probably give it a go
    That and PulserG2 is a beast
    I'm surprised you guys are getting custom ROMs on your GSIIs, your phone's already so powerful!

    Just wondering if anyone could help...

    Noticed my galaxy S2 had god awful battery life, a whole charge eaten in 7 hours. The cause is the screen, using a whopping 78%! what happens is randomly the screen will light up, showing the lock screen but then not going off again. There has been no notifications, even when I receive a text, the screen will light up and then go off as normal...

    I've googled the problem and it is happening to other people aswel, but i've seen no answers to fix the problem.

    For the record, it's rooted and got a custom rom (I cannot remember for the life of me what it's called). Nothing significant has changed and it wasn't happening when I first installed the rom.

    Sorry for the essay!

    Find out what the ROM is, please.

    Settings > About Phone > Kernel Version and Build Number, please.

    It's the litening rom V1.5.

    Kernal version doesn't make any sense to me, 'I9100' is the model number but the rest seems like random numbers! It's: 2.6.35.7-I9100XXKF2-CL253204

    I've set up WidgetLocker but it doesn't remove my stock lockscreen. The only way to not go through 2 lockscreens is to remove my passcode lock

    Yes, as an SDK port. Not quite the same as "available".

    It's the most powerful currently available. The Galaxy Nexus will trump it in power but only slightly. The Nexus will have a better screen though.

    Don't go PAYG :no:

    Do a monthly rolling contract... much better value for money.
