      Had the same problems with RR, switched to Root Box and wella, no crashes. Camera is perfect, but about your Radio, there is no FM radio for GS2 in any of the custom roms.

        i wanna know which is the best rom for using internet for more time ! i want larger battery life

        • http://www.androidsfinest.org/ Android’s Finest

          The rule of thumb for that is the less features the better…I’d recommend something AOSP based or CM10.1 usually has a good battery life. Kernel are another important thing, if you use setCPU and downclock your processor down to like 1.0GHz then you should be good.
