Hi there, I'm new to the forums, so please excuse my obvious newbie questions.
I recently rooted my GT-I9100 (international version), and have a few questions for you guys.
My first question is pretty straightforward; Does the modem version/number have any impact on which kernels or ROMs I can use? Phone: I9100XXKI4
My second question is regarding using ICS kernels and--more importantly--ICS ROMs on Gingerbread. As I bought my phone in Abu Dhabi (UAE), it's currently still running on Android 2.3.5 GB -- there isn't an official ICS update as of yet. And quite frankly, I'm tired of waiting for that official update, so I've taken the plunge and rooted my GSII. Anyway, back to my question; To utilize an ICS ROM like HyDr0G3N-ICS 13.05 (for example), do I need to install an ICS kernel, or do certain ROMs include their own kernel?
Ideally, I would want to use:
Kernel: Siyah v3.2.3
ROM: Resurrection Remix ICS AOKP v.1.8.1 or HyDrOG3N-ICS 13.05
What's the best way to make this happen? Which combination of kernel/ROM is best in this situation?
What would be your advice or input for me going forward?
Thanks for putting up with my noob-y questions
. Any advice is much appreciated!
