The leaked ROM comes from SAM Firmware in association with some of the folks behind custom aftermarket firmware DarkyROM. Flashing it on your Samsung Galaxy S II doesn’t take too much effort, provided that your phone is already rooted and has ClockworkMod recovery flashed.

It is safe but flashing is a risky business, so be careful.

How To Flash Leaked Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread On Samsung Galaxy S II

With that formality out of the way, we can now get down onto the real deal. Before you begin, it is absolutely necessary that your Samsung Galaxy S II (this ROM will not work on any other device) is rooted and has the custom ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery installed on it. In order to flash CWM, you can follow Step #3 and Step #4 from of the linked guide. Also, ensure that your phone is fully-charged so that it does not die during the process.

Everything ready? Let’s do this!

Step 1: Download DarkyROM2_KI3_Base.zip [sourceForge Link] to your computer.

Step 2: Once download is complete, transfer the .zip file to the root (parent directory) of your phone’s internal storage after connecting it to your computer via USB.

Step 3: Turn off your Samsung Galaxy S II. Now, hold Volume Up + Home + Power/Lock button until you boot into ClockworkMod Recovery.

Step 4: Using the volume up/down, home and back keys, navigate to backup and storage > backup.

This is called taking a nandroid backup of your Android device. You can use this later on if you want to revert to your current ROM.

Step 5: With backup complete, let’s move on to the actual flashing process. Download DarkyROM2 tool [Market Link] to your device.

Step 6: Launch DarkyROM2 tool. Go to DarkyROM tab and enable Wipe user data from there.

Step 7: Go back to General tab > Flash/Install File from SDCARD > DarkyROM2_KI3_Base.zip.

Step 8: Sit back and relax as Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread with TouchWiz 4.0 is flashed to your Galaxy S II.

If you followed the steps correctly, you should now have Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread installed on your Samsung Galaxy S II.
