Hence, in this tutorial, we’ll see how to add these and several other features to our galaxy s2 phone. We’ll use AllianceMod package for this. AllianceMod package contains several interesting mods from alliance ROM and can be installed on stock official jelly bean xwls8 firmware.

  • Under UI Mods, you can adjust transparency and colors of status bare, notification panel, toggle buttons and text. You can even enable/disable toggle buttons/widgets.

  4. I’m getting an error – “Signature verification failed” when i try to install the update in recovery mode.

    1. I didn’t screw your device.. You did.. We always caution users to make backup before trying any kind of flashing.. Moreover, as you can see in the video, it works fine for me.. You may have flashed this mod on incompatible firmware..

      1. Dude so many of us cant face the same problem. There is obviously something not completely right with the above procedure.

        1. Did you check your firmware before flashing? Did you root your firmware before flashing? Were you on stock firmware? What was your firmware version?
          Those who faced problems must have done something wrong or didn’t follow the procedures exactly

    1. You know what,,.. To avoid problems like this, i always test before writing any such tutorial. In fact, i’ve used this method successfully on two phones. So, there must ve something wrong resulting in the said problem. And remember, it takes time to start for the first time after flashing. Anyways, leave it if it doesn’t work for you
