Good day,

So First of all i have a Samsung Galaxy SII Gt-i9100 with Official Kernel and 4.1.2Jb
Overall, Jelly bean is good but not on the S2, still a noticable speed difference with its successor i9300
I Looked up some ROMS on Cyanogen website, And i looked for Stable roms, and the latest stable version is this one
http://download.cyanogenmod.org/?dev...00&type=stable

I really don't know what they exactly mean by "Stable" and All i'm worried about is the battery life, i want a better battery life than the one i already have, and i would really appreciate some guidance from you experienced S2 users in choosing a custom Kernel that suits my needs which are nothing but good battery life and no random reboots. i heard Siyah kernels are pretty good and cyanogen's too.

And all Cyanogen ROM Suggestions are highly appreciated.
Thanks for reading

OK......CM JB is gonna be more battery friendly than stock JB simply because of the lack of bloatware........
Please don't ask for kernel/ROM recommendations as this is against XDA rules.......
the idea is YOU try them out and YOU decide what is best for YOU.........

use cm10.1.3 is it the best most battery friendly ,actually most of cm nightlys are ok for daily usage u can even try cm11m3 its also almost stable ,there are many options for custom kernels in stock ,u choose the best for yourself ,for cm and other aosp/aokp roms use the provided kernel for stock bestrecommendation is dorimanx kernel

Thanks for the clarification, But trying all kernels available will be just a total waste of time and energy, although i'm actually thinking about flashing the cm10.1.3, Do i have to change the kernel? can i just
download latest CWM,
flash it with odin,
do all wipes etc and
flash rom + gapps?
will this process change kernel? because cm10.1.3 doesn't come with any custom kernel inside the package..

All ROMs come with their own built in kernels......if you want to change this, it's up to you.....just gotta do your research first........

i'd suggest you to flash cm10.1.3 stable release or cm10.2 last nightly ( i guess 26th jan nightly was the last one ) as they both are stable and can be used as daily drivers . if the tag " stable " matters to you and of course , the battery too , try out Infected_'s EOL cm10.2.1 final release .. it is a stable release and is a bit faster than the official one as it is compiled using the linaro toolchain .. all the roms i mentioned are smooth , lagless , and yes , stable and battery friendly . i hope my suggestions are helpful and all the best ! #HappyFlashing
