Best battery, low wakelocks, minimum bloatware and excellent performance… a rom that just works!
After flashing tons of ROMs on our beloved S2 I was a bit tired and wanted to focus on what's most important BATTERY LIFE. Of course I needed a working rom, fast and efficient but not necessarily with the latest version of android and with as less bloatware as possible. So I decided to make my own ROM.
As I am not a developer I limited myself to a throughout modding, (with the approval of its creator) of the best rom in my opinion DISASTER.
I am really satisfied with the result so I decided to share it with the community! Try it by yourself and tell me what you think, please keep in mind I am not a developer.

I don’t ask for donations but I would appreciate a “thanks” if you like the rom
I have tested this ROM for more than 3 month and experienced no issues but as always, flash at your own risk. This rom does not mess with your EFS folder but make sure you keep a backup of it just in case.
