As IB Times described the custom Vanilla Rootbox v4.2 ROM, it "brings a light, fast and easy to use interface on the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean firmware."

Some of the features and enhancements you will notice after installing Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update on your Samsung Galaxy S2 include multi-user support, new quick settings option, new camera application, photo sphere, gesture typing, Daydream feature, Miracast display and changes to Google Now.

Some of the things to note before you install Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update to your Samsung Galaxy S2 are listed below:

  • Remember that the Vanilla Rootbox v4.2 ROM is only applicable to the international version of Samsung Galaxy S2 I9100. Check the model number of your device first by going to 'Settings' and then to 'About Phone.'

  • You can back up significant data and settings on your phone using custom recovery tool like ClockWorkMod (CWM) or TWRP.
  • Battery level of the Galaxy S2 should be 80% or higher to prevent unwanted device shutdown because of power drainage during the process.
  • Enable USB debugging.
  • Your Samsung Galaxy S2 should be factory unlocked, meaning it is not locked to a certain network carrier.
