Hey guys, here is a list of stable  Android 6.0 Marshmallow Roms for our beloved Galaxy S2 GT-I9100. The roms are from different developers and teams from the XDA forum and they are based on CM 13 and AOSP.


The Roms are stable and very good for daily usage, you are also going to be receiving new updates from the roms developers and they also comes with all android 6.0 features and the possibility to add more exciting user customizations for the advanced users without limitations.

ROMs should contain everything you need to enjoy Marshmallow. You are not required to install any Add Ons, simply scroll down and download any latest ROM below, Google Apps, flash it, and go!
I  have include the links to the main Thread on XDA Forum at the end of every rom, should in case you have any questions or need more information. You are STRONGLY recommended to fully wipe your device before flashing, and if possible avoid restoring system apps and system data with Titanium Backup - these can cause stability issues that are very hard to debug. If you believe you know what you're doing - then fine, go ahead, but please don't complain if you experience strange behavior.


You will need a Custom Recovery That support android 6.0 on your galaxy s2, i recommend you install the latest official version of TWRP recovery Here

                                        Marshmallow Roms Based on the CM 13


1. XOSP 5.4 Unofficial 6.0.1 Rom


   XOSP basically which stands for the Xperia Open Source Project was a project originally created by GreekDragon for the Galaxy S+ and the project was created like 2 years ago when that time XOSP wasn't even existing. It was just S+ Reborn. The main idea was to create a custom minimal Xperia based ROM, by including the essential things which a user would normal use from a ROM.

   XOSP became a big success because it was eventually ported on different Xperia Phones and some other Samsung devices and from there the XOSP project was founded. From the XOSP Project also addons were created featuring with an Aroma Installer. GreekDragon worked on the project for 2 years trying always to improve it constantly.

  1. Hi,
    Is there any ROM that has Gapps bundled inside? I am flashing my S2 but can only do the ROM. When flashing Gapps, it says insufficient space to do so.
    I have tried several ways to rectify this but so far no cigar.

    Cheers,
    Ken
