Hi, I've been running kitkat and it runs quite smoohtly on my s2, consumes a lot less resources and battery lasts a bit longer, however you will encounter with several issues since the startup.

I've solved pretty much every issue except for the clock which changes randomly overnight, as I stated on my thread.

Hello BR8808!

I think it is only fair to point out that Android 4.4, KitKat, will not be released officially by Samsung for the the Galaxy S2. In fact, Samsung have not even released the year old Android 4.2.2 or the Android 4.3 for the S2.

What Psyckus failed to mention is that his phone is rooted and is probably running a third party custom ROM based on CyanogenMod, that sort of emulates KitKat in some functions but is not actually Android 4.4, KitKat.
