Hello Friends and Fellow XDA Members,
I present my first custom ROM, JoelDroid for Samsung Galaxy S2 i9100 Only.
Here are some Screenshots and Features.
Future of the Rom:
The reason I developed this was to bring the goodness of JellyBean to S2 users.
Since my S2 unit broke.. I have discontinued my rom.
My rom used wanamlite for S2 as a base.
You can use this rom yourself too... (link below)
It was my favourite rom when I used my S2...

Make sure you have a custom CWM Recovery & your device is rooted (if you have custom CWM Recovery then chances are that 99% that your device is rooted).
If you are coming from XXLSJ Samsung ROM No need to Wipe Data
If you are coming from GB/AOSP/AOKP (ICS or JB) Roms or a Samsung 4.0.3/4.0.4 builds you MUST wipe data
Sorry for being away guys, I know so many of you waited for this rom, I was away and had some issues in my life which needed to be sorted out.
My S2 unit broke after I had an accidental fall from a bus and the whole unit is cracked and broken.
So sadly I have come to a conclusion to discontinue this ROM as without a device I really cannot blindly release it to you guys.
Again my sincerest apologies.
