We always try to bring the most promising and powerful custom ROMs available for our users and HoneyComp is no exception. This ROM as with many other recently released custom ROMs for the Samsung Galaxy S2 integrates a number of highly desirable tweaks such as CF-Root kernel with CWM Recovery that can come very handy to flash new kernels, Roms etc., new boot animations, minimal ads in applications, VoIP SIP support which is missing from the stock Samsung ROM, cool CRT animation, extended power menu, hacked camera application with much better sound quality and many other tweaks, This ROM has all the user interface covered in a reddish flavored theme (see the picture above). There are more than 30 matching themed applications. And of course ROM is fully rooted and installs usual Root and Busybox. Another notable point is that all the default Samsung crap bloat-ware apps have been removed from this ROM. Another advantage of this custom ROM is that it’s a no wipe ROM.
