If you are a Galaxy S II owner with root privileges and are always looking to do incredible things with your dual core beast, then there is some great news for you. Senior XDA member BMWPokerFace has just released first ROM for Samsung Galaxy S II that gives you onscreen detailing up to 200 DPI!
This means that, after flashing this ROM, you will be able to experience a bigger screen with more space on homescreen and reduced in-app scrolling demand. SkyROM 200 DPI custom ROM for Samsung Galaxy S II basically unleashes the true potential of 4.2 Inch screen incorporating the massive hardware support present. The SkyROM for Samsung Galaxy S II is based on official XXKF2 Frimware and comes pre-rroted, deodexed, zip-aligned and CF-Root Kernel with ClockworkMod Recovery 4.
An interesting aspect of this high screen density ROM is that it comes without TouchWiz Launcher because, according to ROM Chef, of it’s incompatibility with 200 DPI. Other important features of this custom ROM include themed Market, Gallery 3D, ClockPackage, Keyboard, Calculator, revamped and optimized Lockscreen Wallpaper, On board VOIP –SIP Support, G-Talk with Video, Launcher PRO and zero Bloatware.
