    It's from the one you linked: http://www.theandroidsoul.com/xxlpq/

    I used that, then the CF-ROOT LPQ-PROPER v5.4 to root it.

    The Foxhound ROM says "LP9". Maybe I should try out Slim ICS and CyanogenMod as well...:p

    I only used that as a reference thinking you were going to get XWLP9 firmware release. I'm sorry bro. I thought you did some reading before hand :/


    EDIT:

    Pretty sure though all you need to do is a proper wipe and have the correct kernel installed and it will take the custom rom no problem.

    I'm planning on getting the S3 - the SGS is the easiest phone I've ever had to root. Hopefully this'll continue with the S3.

    I went back to the trusted Project Elite 4.2 froyo with 1100Mhz Kernel. This rom is the best I have ever used for my OG and I believe I will leave it here.

    I didn't, the GS2 is still superior in many cases, hence I got it instead of the One X.

    Microsim is a minor problem (for me at least), no microSD slot, battery life is a bit of an issue as well. And looks like the battery's not removable/replaceable...

    Anyone recommend a good music player app for S2,because i've installed 4.0 ICS on my S2 and randomly some of my songs just stutters like mad,to point i need skip songs. Other songs work fine and its not my earphone or earphone slot because everything else works normal.
    It only happened when i updated to ICS.
    I have also tried winamp but damn app crashes.

    I assumed i'd just be able to get a MicroSIM from three...

    Not too fussed about the mSD issue if i'm honest, even with my current phone packed with pointless crap - it's only 20GB full. The One X has 25GB onboard with 25GB online (Rubbish, i know, but i might use it). Never been a big fan of replacing batteries too.

    Also looked at the Sony Xperia S too, such a great looking phone.

    It would be honestly better to wait it out until the S3 is released then make your decision.

    Release for it should be around June. Rumours are that its either being powered by dual core snap dragon or samsungs own exynos quad core cpu, both which outperform tegra 3, with 2GB of ram and other things, I'd wait for it.

    Aaaaand, two days later, my DInc goes into an endless reboot-loop. Fortunately, I'd been backing up apps and whatnot in prep for modding, so I went hunting, and snagged Cyanogen 7.1 and 7.2. Neither of which would let me install ANY apps, either apks or from the google play. Ended up doing a complete wipe again, and got it working again, but fell over to a Gingerbread stock, with some fluff stripped, and running that now. Running smooth so far :)

    Ouch! That's very unfortunate. Maybe you have one of OG DInc's that doesn't like to take the updated kernel.

    @ InnocentCriminal

    I know and I am very excited.

    Yerp!

    I'm hoping it looks better in the flesh. Saying that though, my SGS doesn't look that good tbf. SGS 2 looks great imo.

    Why is my home's wi-fi getting f**ked up whenever I connect my GS2 to the router? Although thus far the only fix I tried is keeping it exclusively 2.4GHz instead of auto...
