    Awesome, awesome, awesome, no problems at all, follow directions people….Just a small question, at the end of your directions you say to enter into download mode to clear the cache. Now I know from flashing my old v845 that when I go into the download mode there is a whole menu and and option to clear cache etc, but after flashing this awesome rom, i go into download mode and it just tunes me to press volume key up if I want to proceed. By the way, none of my original apps are corrupt when entering home screen so I dunno? Does the cache files clear automatically when entering download mode again or do you have to use odin somehow to clear it? Anyways bro, thanks for this awesome and fast rom its truly legendary that I can keep my warranty etc and still change the stupid green gingerbread look as well as boosting speed etc. Any way to update to 2.3.5 using the same method as above? By the way I am in S.A on the MTN network and came from xxki3 to this rom of yours and the network is superfast, as fast as lightning you could say. Thanks again, God Bless ya soul for this. SUPERSTOKED.

        No worries bro, you must have worked your ass off to get this rom as perfect as it is. I am currently using the darky ota app on the market to change various things, mostly just the kki4 modem and some visual aspects, working ace bro. If you could tell me, is there any inherent danger with using darky ota app with this rom of yours? I have not noticed anything but read somewhere that blue on the sgs2 screen can cause the burn-inn phenomena. Anyways, thanks a million, is there any way I can donate to say thanks? I know on the xda forums etc I can donate by pressing a few links, does it work the same here? Thanks again Pradeep and, ‘Nameste’.

    October 19, 2011 at 12:33 pm

    Hi Neal,

    Notice a few lagging/staggering effects on the Lite’ning ROM when I am receiving calls.

    I was hoping to revert back to stock ROM, but have got glued to the:
    1) % Power Meter
    2) CRT Effect

    Have noticed online (Youtube and other forums) that this can be done separately without having to install custom ROM.
    Can you please advise how to achieve this.

    I would be glad if you can share the files, links and instructions (preferably doing via Odin, instead of Clockwork Recovery Methds).

    Do let me know if you can assist.

    • NeaL Pradeep

      October 21, 2011 at 8:06 pm

      you can install You Tube app from Market separately!

  16. Arun Panta

    October 11, 2011 at 5:28 am

    Hi Neal …

    I have successfully flashed and moved to Litening ROM.
    The effects are really cool … but I miss the swype keyboard.

    Any idea how I can install the same ?!

    Is there a way to check and kill unwanted apps and processes … now that I have rooted …

    Another quick question, where can I get more information on this “Superuser” app … ?!!

    • NeaL Pradeep

      October 11, 2011 at 9:34 am

      swype will be updated int eh next version!

      • Arun Panta

        October 12, 2011 at 11:47 am

        Thanks Neal …

        1) Any timelines on the next version ?

        2) Can we update the furture versions without having to back-up data etc ?

        3) Will the apps need to be reinstalled, like I did this time ?

        • NeaL Pradeep

          October 12, 2011 at 10:19 pm

          no arun not as of now
          yes you can update,
          you can use Titanium backup to create the backup of apps!

    September 27, 2011 at 5:39 pm

    Hiya Neal Pradeep,

    Coupla questions:

    1) Can I install the Lite’ning ROM over Gingerbread 2.3.5 (i see that this page recommends 2.3.4).

    2) Once I have installed the latest Gingerbread (either 2.3.4 or 2.3.5) I can flash and install Liten’ning ROM, correct? Does this mean the phone is rooted. So my basic question is do I have to do anything else to root my phone in order to make certain APPS (Juice Defender, etc) work more efficiently ??


    • NeaL Pradeep

      September 27, 2011 at 8:15 pm

      yes you can but follow the insturctions carefully which are mentioned,

      • Arun Panta

        September 28, 2011 at 9:49 am

        Thanks Neal,

        BTW … if I back up all apps and app data along with contacts, etc … can they be restored once the flashing is complete.
        I mean, will all else be the same if I am able to back up before flashing and restore after flashing ??!


        • NeaL Pradeep

          September 28, 2011 at 2:11 pm

          yes all the things can be restored!

        • NeaL Pradeep

          September 28, 2011 at 2:11 pm

          you can restore all the contents which you have backed up!

    “Since you are not rooting this phone, the warranty of the phone stays intact which again is a huge relief.” WRONG!

    Flashing your phone voids your warranty!

    • NeaL Pradeep

      but the warranty can be re claimed anytime!

    Hi Neal,

    Just a couple of questions:

    – Should I select the check box for repartitioning if I am uploading the PIT file? I noticed it was unchecked in your screenshot.
    – Also, in recovery mode should I also restore factory settings on my phone after flashing firmware? Some guides suggest doing that and some don’t.

    • NeaL Pradeep

    IS the Lite’ning ROM compatible with all the stock software (except for the browser) ??
    Will I face any issuesing trying to flash Android Gingerbread 2.3.3 – XWKF1?

    Can I backup and restore the old stock ROM?

    • NeaL Pradeep

      September 2, 2011 at 4:53 pm

    I just applied teh ligtening rom. All has gone well but I would appear to have lost my CWM application ?
    How do I recover this ?

    I used CWM to save my previous rom.

    Thanks for any advice


    • jay

      August 31, 2011 at 1:29 pm

      Ok, I resolved the problem.

      Although lightening comes as rooted, you lose the cwm applications.

      To get this back just follow the rooting instructions ( do it again if you did it before installing ligtening rom ) and you will get your cwm back.

        hi, thx for replying,
        so what i understand is,
        i should back up using cwm (in internal, dont have sd card yet),
        get litening rom (which i presume will have cwm) and restore??
        will this restore the bloatware which got backed up before ?

        i have something really stupid…i replace my framewors-res.apk file, and now my phone is in bootloop.
        the worst problem is i dont have usb debuggin enabled, so i have tried getting stock rom but no use, clearing caches also no use….

        is my phone bricked???

    Hi there Neal,

    It’s a super ROM ! Thanks for developing it ! Will you update it for future updates of firmware versions ? I really love it.

    I only have one little question. I tried to change the wallpaper but didn’t succeed. Is it correct that after flashing the litening ROM I can’t change the wallpaper anymore ? I also can’t with the options Litening Wallpapers when I choose a wallpaper then.

    Thanks again and best regards,

    • NeaL Pradeep

    Neal, after updating with Litening ROM, am getting a warning indicator everytime when I switch on the phone. Is there a way to remove it???

    • NeaL Pradeep

      August 26, 2011 at 1:04 pm

      no, not as of now!

        August 26, 2011 at 1:31 pm

        that’s not correct.

        buy a Jig from e-bay and remove yellow triangle as well as your custom firmware counter as well

    Thanks neal ive updated to the new rom update. only problem in my s2 is that while in camera mode, there is not shutter sound when i am taking snaps. Can u help in this regards…

    • NeaL Pradeep

      August 26, 2011 at 11:21 am

      go to settings and set the shutter sound!

      • Atik

        August 26, 2011 at 1:56 pm

        No options for shutter sound, why?

        • koryente

          August 26, 2011 at 6:32 pm

          This one I also noticed no camera sound after updating. Cant find shutter sound in settings.

      • Uzair Jillani

        August 26, 2011 at 10:25 pm

        Agreed with atik. There is no option for setting shutter sound in camera menu or in the main setting tab in sounds. After the ROM update that option is not available…

    • koryente

      August 27, 2011 at 2:32 pm

      Hi Neal and everyone! I double-checked this problem just to make sure. I reverted to previous firmware and stock ROM XXKH3. Then updated to Litening ROM. After updating, I immediately opened camera and took a shot. Result: No sound of shutter. Will have to revert again to firmware XXKH3 and stock ROM and check camera sound.

    • koryente

      August 29, 2011 at 12:36 am

      Hi Neal! I found solution to this problem. Replace the following camera sound files: camera_click.ogg, camera_click_short.ogg, and Shutter_01.ogg and re-boot your phone. The files are found in /system/media/audio/ui

  74. festus

    August 25, 2011 at 7:19 pm

    O yes, thanks Neal, updated with the Superfast Litening ROM, works great!!!
