The Revolt JB ROM is a custom ROM that can be installed on the Samsung Galaxy SII i9100. It’s a formidable choice over the last Jelly Bean update the phone was given because that particular ROM didn’t seem to mesh all that well with the Galaxy S2 i9100. It’s understandable too, given the fact that this device did actually start of as a 2.3 Gingerbread device then later updating to the Ice Cream Sandwich which Google took so long to bring out before finally ending up with the Jelly Bean ROM. If you have had enough with your 4.1 Jelly Bean ROM then I highly recommend giving this revolt Jelly bean ROM a whirl. From all reports, it’s meant to be really good for the phone.
