Compile Android 4.2 for the At&T Galaxy S II Skyrocket

As many may have noticed, we here at XDA have spent quite a bit of time over the last couple of weeks talking about Android 4.2. It’s everywhere now, including the SDK and its release to the AOSP. So now comes the time when ROMs should start appearing. For AT&T Galaxy S II Skyrocket users, you could have one sooner than most.

XDA Senior Member sk8erwitskil released a tutorial that helps users compile the newly released revision of Jelly Bean. However, instead of making people start entirely from scratch, this tutorial is more of an add-on from the popular method to compile Android 4.1 for the Skyrocket. As sk8erwitskil explains:

Im in the process of compiling android 4.2 for the skyrocket right now. i wanted to share the changes i needed to make to get it to keep compiling.

With that said, the overall process isn’t complete yet. That means you can’t follow this and have a perfectly running ROM. However, it is fairly close to being completed, and members of the Skyrocket community have been helping figure out the problems and fixes. It shouldn’t be long before fully functional source-built Android 4.2 ROMs start churning out for the Galaxy S II Skyrocket.

For more details, or if you would like to help out, check out the original thread.

The Global Mobile Awards given out during the time of MWC 2015 named it the Smartphone of The Year (SOTY?) alongside the iPhone 6, and at the time of its release it packed the very best in Android specifications, from the powerful Snapdragon 801 to the class-leading 1440p display. The camera, battery life and feature set were also deemed...

DexPatcher: Patch Android APKs Using Java

You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though? A lot of the time, the applications' source code isn't even available, so how does it all work? We'll see that first, then take a look at a new tool that aims to make the process much easier, and finally compare it to the popular Xposed framework to see how they...
