Each and every cellphone carrier got its own version of the Samsung Galaxy S 2 which became the best selling Android smartphones on the market while Samsung took the lead over Apple in smartphone shipments worldwide. T-Mobile’s Galaxy S 2 version came a bit later in the US than other carrier’s versions but developers still jumped on it and continue developing new kernels and custom ROMs for it. Romanbb @ XDA along with Team Kang released a custom kernel which overclocks the T-Mobile Galaxy S 2 to up to 1.89 GHz. More info after the break.
