Some of the features include S-Voice natural language commands and dictation, Smart Stay and Smart Rotate eye tracking, SNS integration, active noise cancellation with dedicated mic. Another eye catching feature was the Multi Window. It basically means the user can have two active windows on a single screen.

The developers managed to port this feature into the Samsung Galaxy S2 phone. Even Galaxy S2 users can have multiple windows on the same screen. For this, the user will have to flash the image via the recovery.

This mod will work only on the Samsung Galaxy S2 devices running on the  4.1.2 XXLSJ deodexed ROMs.
