I am looking for 4.4.x rom for my galaxy s2. I have installed beanstalk 4.4.2 rom, but what I don't like about it is that it is very "custom". I am looking for rom, similar to super nexus - absolutely stock google android experience. Can anyone recommend something? Thanks!

Did you take a look at CyanogenMod? It is not absolutely stock Google Android experience but absolutely stock AOSP (Android Open Source Project) experience. It means that all Google proprietary additions are not included (for legal reasons), but you can install them easily using a package called gApps. In the end you have something very close to a Nexus experience plus very little additions that are all useful.

  • Great tip. However, it is only in snapshot M4 stage, so it is very buggy. Commented Mar 16, 2014 at 11:09

    actually, I've been using CyanogenMod on an SGS 2 for almost 4 months now and it's really stable. Commented Mar 16, 2014 at 14:42

I think I know what you should opt for , you should go for AOSP based ROMs ; here's a list :

1.CyanogenMod (minimal but necessary cutomization)

2.Paranoid Android (same as Cyanogenmod very less cutomization)

3.OmniRom ( basically same )

4.PAC (mixture of Paranoid android , Cyanogenmod and AOKP) ( a bit more of cutomization)

You should first checkout the official websites of these ROMs , or you can head to XDA forums and find official and unofficial build of these or even more ROMs , but according to your preference look for "[AOSP]" in threads .
