Pacman ROM Released for the T-Mobile Galaxy S II
The PACMan ROM is catching on here on XDA and we couldn’t be happier about it. For those who still don’t know, PACMan ROM is an AOSP-based ROM that includes bits and pieces from CyanogenMod 10, AOKP, and ParanoidAndroid. So you get all the perks of all three ROMs, including ParanoidAndroid’s unique tablet mode. Now, the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II can get in on the action.
XDA Senior Member gs2usr has released the mash up ROM for the T-Mobile Galaxy S II. It features everything we’ve come to expect from PACMan, including CM settings, AOKP settings, and ParanoidAndroid settings. It also comes with init.d support. Here’s what isn’t working:
CM10/ AOKP bugs
Some Feature Missing (to be added in future)
Find a new bug? report in the thread
So whatever bugs you may find in AOKP and CM10, you’ll also find in this ROM. In their respective threads, CM10 and AOKP don’t seem to have any major bugs. Users are reporting that the ROM works really well, except the aforementioned missing settings. That will be fixed in future releases. So this is definitely daily driver material. It is definitely a great ROM to check out if you want to see all that current AOSP has to offer.
