Alien ROM provides a concocted stew of TouchWiz, and Gingerbread for your Galaxy S II Skyrocket. Samsung's TouchWiz functionality stays intact, but the Alien theme brings a slight hint of traditional Gingerbread to the party. There are very few theme changes with this ROM.Official Beta Tester signature:HTML Code:[CENTER][URL="http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1376482"][IMG]http://i.imgur.com/bfP86.png[/IMG][/URL][/CENTER]

- It's not working when I install! I'm receiving force closes, sitting at bootloops, etc.
Make sure you're installing the ROM correctly. Remember that kernels, MODs, radios, and carriers can mess with your phone's performance and workability.
- I'm not on AT&T and this ROM is completely broken!
This ROM is not necessarily designed for international compatibility. Please wait for future updates or attempt an install with a proper international kernel.
- Why is my device running/booting slowly?
Your first boot will take an unimaginably long time. After that, your device will continue to run slowly until the application cache is built up. Don't worry, the speed will increase as you use the ROM!
- Why is my battery life bad?
Your battery life is often killed when flashing ROMs in CWM. For the best battery life, you must drain your device’s battery until it turns off. Plug the device into the AC adapter and let it charge until the image says 100% charged. Then turn it on and use the volume buttons to boot into CWM. Click Wipe Battery Stats under the advanced menu. Then you should charge to 100% and install the ROM. Battery life should be comparable to (if not better than) every other ROM.
- Where's my bloatware?
Alien deletes unnecessary bloatware that can be replaced by better applications in the Android Market. If you'd like the bloatware back, you can download the "bloatware.zip" from here.
- Why isn't there a battery mod?
You can cook your own battery mod using the UOT kitchen. If you'd like the one I use, you can grab it here.
- I thought Alien ROM was by KennethPenn, what the...?
Unfortunately, Kenneth is currently not able to continue development of Alien ROM for the SGSII SR without a phone to develop on. This is an authorized continuation of his work. Please show your support for his work by visiting BriefMobile.
