Yeah I was really impressed with it, however as soon I found Viber wasn't working I restored my stock 4.0.4.

I've been through so many ROMs on my SGS2 now but I just keep returning to Stock + TouchwizUX + DorimanX kernel. I loved CM on my previous phones but the inability to swipe away the voicemail notification and the lack of FB contact sync was a deal breaker for me.

Hoping there's a Viber fix ASAP since I apparently can't live without it and CM10 is looking like the first non stock ROM that I could actually use as my daily driver.

Hmm, CM10 doesn't boot on my device when installed as a secondary ROM. :(

JB doesn't support ICS kernels yet


Will it ever? At the moment you can only use the supplied kernel, which anyone reading the thread should already know. The first three pages are quite amusing when I red it last night. A lot of repeated info about GApps (must be JB specific) and kernels (no, siyah or any other ics kernels don't work). I had a few chuckles. When I installed the rom on my phone the thread was three pages long, now it's 115. I somehow doubt I'll bother catching up on those posts!

I'm quite enjoying this experimental build. It's smoother and faster than my LPG based Omega 15, I'm using Nova Prime as the launcher, which seems to have broken unread counts but is otherwise fine. The Swype issues I had last night only occurred when replying to posts on geekzone, I've had no problems since (geekzone seems to hate my phone). It's light years ahead of the first release CM9 builds. Camera is working fine too, and you can swipe directly into the gallery, handy for viewing after a few shots.
It's obviously a very early leak of a work in progress, but after 18 hours I'm happy to keep it on as a daily rom. Still need to test apps for compatibility but other than Viber I've found no issues yet.

Quadrant runs for those who may be interested (installed, ran three times, uninstalled...), 3043, 3076 and 3164.

W00t! I'm finally able to dual-boot CM10 (secondary) with ICS (primary; Omega 15)!

I'm using Talustus kernel which supports dual-booting between JB/ICS ROMs. And for those never heard of Talustus - Talustus's kernels are built from Siyah's sources, but with additional tweaks (like a new recovery), and *way* quicker updates. I used to beta test them for Talustus for a while now but always went back to Siyah because back in the day, Gokhanmoral used to push out S2 Siyah updates quite frequently and so Talustus was always a step behind. Now it appears that GM is focusing more on S3 these days. Luckily Talustus is still loyal to the S2; and he's also a developer and not just a merge-and-build operator, so he can implement quick fixes. And he's very reachable on IRC. ;) He has also been generous enough to give me developer access to his git repo, so if need be I could always merge a patch or build the kernel myself. :D

 

Oh, almost forgot: here's the download link:

I'm genuinely curious as I've never had any use for a dual boot kernel (despite having them installed several times) it and wonder what people actually do with it, other than bragging points. 
Still very happy with CM10 on the S2, running very nicely and I'm still on the initial 20120725 build. I have switched to the later 20120726 GApps (inverted, stock) which gives you the enhanced notification bar features and proper JB 4.1.1 apps.

Only used the dual boot kernel to run my daily driver and try out the other roms others here have suggested. I've managed to try out far more roms than i normally would running on a single boot.

Now on Resurrection Remix 3.0 which is now on JB AOKP with no issues so far. RR still my preferred rom for it's quickness around the UI. Tried CM10 but didn't quite like the feel of it.

I've always had genuine reasons to dual-boot on my phone:

1) My primary ROM is my main OS with all the bells and whistles including a nice LWP showing off the full potential of the S2; the secondary ROM has only the bare essential apps and services and lots of tweaks aimed at maximizing battery life. When I'm running low on battery or I'm not actively using my phone, I just reboot into the lighter ROM. Even if I'm at say just 5% of my battery while using my primary, rebooting into the secondary is enough to safely take me home and last till the morning. :)

Sure I can tweak my primary as well - which I have to an extent - but then with a dual-boot approach I don't have to compromise in either scenarios. I can have the full shebang on my primary and I can go to the extreme extra mile on the secondary - even at the expense of functionality and speed. I get best of both worlds. :)

2) The other scenario is of course to play around with new ROMs. Thanks to dual-booting I never have to bother with backing up my existing setup, and I can simply flash a new ROM without a second thought. I can't even remember the last time I had to a nandroid backup. :)

Yep, dexter explains it in a bit more detail but I'm the same. I use the test rom to try different apps, try games, experiment with battery life etc, pretty much anything, be it good or bad without disrupting my daily driver.

@ Damager and d3Xt3r
Thanks!
I've never delved very deeply into it and appreciate the great responses. It's actually got me to thinking it'd be handy doing the same myself now. ;)
I've been a fan of the CM builds for a while, seeing them as the future for most (supported) devices. The only hassle with CM10 is video playback (JB is only software accelerated at the moment) and the loss of MHL. Based on what you have said I might strip a Samsung rom to it's barest state and run one dual-booted (any rom suggestions welcome).
Might have to do an internal sdcard wipe first though, mine is getting a little messy. Will then switch to RR v3 and whatever sammy rom I decide on.

Betraying my near total ignorance of dual booting (appears I have a great deal of reading to do...) do the sms apps in both roms pick up all messages, or are they totally separate?


On another note, I recall reading something on XDA over the weekend about devs looking at binding the external sd card into the system properly, to effectively combine it with the internal memory. It seems like a great idea as I've only removed mine once in the last 14 months. It'd be nice to have 48Gb of internal memory - no more hassles with the internal memory filling up without me realising it.

Hey Lee

Yeps, totally separate roms, basically think of having 2 phones, but accessing the same internal/external sd cards.

You could go airplane mode while experimenting on the second rom, so when you go back to your daily driver, it picks up the SMS waiting.

Haven't used it lately though as I got another S2 which I've been using to test roms on.

I'm thinking I'll use it to get the best of the CM/AOKP and Samsung roms. I hadn't really thought too much about it but it's the perfect way to overcome the downsides of each rom. I can ditch Samsung's slow update cycle and keep MHL and decent video playback. Not going to happen until the weekend though.

It should do. You'll be flashing a stock, secure kernel via Odin. It's only insecure kernels that bring the little triangular badge of honour. ;)

In the highly unlikely event that fails I can send you a usb jig.

You're getting rid of the S2?
