Can you recommend me an Android ROM for the Galaxy S2 that is stable and light on battery?

Hey guys, I have a friend whose girlfriend’s phone I rooted and put Cyanogen Mod on it. She loved it, but is now complaining about battery life. This couple aren’t very tech savvy, so I need to find a ROM that is very stable (otherwise I’ll never hear the end of it) and is easy on battery life as stated before.

The phone in question is a Samsung Galaxy S2. I have the same phone and Cyanogen Mod on mine and it’s fine on battery life for me. I’ve tried suggesting that the battery will run down quicker after flashing a new ROM as they’ll be playing around with it a while, but to no avail…

Any suggestions are welcome, it doesn’t have to be particularly fast but too too slow and it won’t do (they are used to the stock ROM).

Thanks guys!

-Alex.

    The problem might not be the CyanogenMod, but the kernel, try flashing a new kernel throught CWM recovery and that will enhance the battery life go to xda forums: http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1332 and check a different kernel

    I've using Cyanogenmod 10, it's pretty stable right now, and the battery is oustanding.

    hope this helped. sorry but cyanogenmod seems the most stable of all custom roms. you can try putting the samsung's stock rom. s2 has a better battery life and most android phones.
