It is usually typical for manufacturers to leave out candy features on their old devices while them being perfectly capable. Like the case of iPhone 3G and 3GS; 3Gs got up to iOS 6 iteration, meanwhile iPhone 3G which was pretty close in performance if not equal was left at iOS 4. Another example is Siri, which iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4 demonstrated that they could run it perfectly but Apple decided otherwise. Samsung turned to the same pages as well with their Galaxy S3, leaving the most awaited touchwiz feature to Galaxy S3 and Note-II, yes, we are talking about the Multi View windows. But not to worry, XDA has decided to take the matters in their own hands and a memer named ‘mythtrandyr’ has released a tweak which will give you the same features on your Galaxy SII.



There are a few requirements you need to fulfil:

  • Stock Android 4.1.2
  • Samsung XXLSJ firmware based TouchWiz ROM
  • Rooted Device

So, if your device fits the criteria, by all means follow the simple steps to give your device an overhaul. The mod will add following cherry picks along with multi window view:

  • The 4 icons shortcut on the lockscreen.
  • The ripple effect lock screen.
  • Volume rocker song skip.
  • Fix for the Home button lag.
