Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch SPH-D710 (Sprint): Installing AOKP ICS-based HyDrA custom ROM with tablet UI - Android Authority


Tuesday 22nd of May 2012 / androidauthority.com
There are already a handful of custom ROMs for the Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch SPH-D710 (Sprint), which just shows how much attention it is getting from developers all over the Internet. Now there is another custom ROM developed for the device and it’s not like any other ordinary custom ROM. Called HyDrA ROM, this custom ROM has a mixed user interface of a phone and a tablet. It may sound weird but it looks good, especially since it’s Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS).XDA Developers member VeNuM and a team of other developers created HyDrA ROM with a tablet interface for the Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch. The ROM is based on AOKP (Android Open Kang Project) sources, which means that you get the tablet look plus the performance and additional customization options that AOKP ROMs have. Unfortunately, because the tablet UI was not made for smaller displays, icons and text are very small, which can be a problem for the meantime. But if you just want to have fun, HyDrA ROM is worth trying out.RequirementsBackup all personal data on your phone to make sure you have a copy of your personal
