Sunday, 4 December 2011

Thanks goes to stelios97 for the x10 mini ics port, nobodyAtall, alfsamsung and doixanh for their awesome kernels, fifo171 for testing on X8 (stelious97's rom), troufiniou and n1kolaa who are currently developing this rom and to all the ICS testers as well as those who PM-ed me asking if they could help. Thanks guys  !

stelious 97's thread

troufiniou's thread

n1kolaa's thread


unlocked bootloader (stock kernel will not work: bootloops)
custom kernel : nAa kernel/alfs kernel/linuxdx kernel
rooted phone
latest firmware and baseband (xxxx015)

What's Working:
Touchscreen (synaptics users ONLY for now)
Hard buttons (Thnx to tony-noob )
Vibrate (With the nAa/alfs Kernel)
Sound (???)
SD Card Readable (V005)
LED (V005)
GSM (V005) (Can recieve calls and SMS but cant send sms and make calls )
Brightness (V005)

What isn't working :
Pretty much everything else

Installation Instructions: 

Unlock Bootloader
For advanced users
For n00bs like me 

Flash nAa kernel/alfs kernel/ linuxdx 

Place rom on your sd card

Go to CWM Recovery

Full wipe

Wipe data

Wipe cache

Flash rom








Diclaimer : I can't be held responsible if this rom bricks, destroys or screws up your phone  flash at your own risk ! ALWAYS MAKE A BACKUP BEFORE FLASHING !!!!!! If you do have problems, PM me and I'll help  

Video was done by jahlovePL  thnx mate

Screenshots by 72andrew72 thnx bro !

Primary objectives : Fix network coverage, wifi, bluetooth, camera, basically everything and compatibility for cypress users (hang in there guys)

If you're not happy with this rom, simply full wipe, wipe cache, wipe data and restore your backup ! As for the kernel, you can use any kernel you prefer.


1. I am not a developer. I am merely providing info and links based on troufiniou and n1kolaa's progress. All credits go to them and the testers.

2. This rom only works with synaptics digitizer users. As tony-noob tested, cypress users can't use their screens  sry guys.

3. According to fifo171, along with many other things such as wifi, bluetooth, camera, the usb and sdcard aren't working as well.

Let's all have a blast with this  !

-Sd card is working 
-LED works 
-Brightness can be adjusted

V004 (3-12-2011)
*A few improvements*
-About phone stats have been corrected (except for baseband)
-Keyboard is finally fixed  !!!
-Scrolling speed improved and smoothened !
-If it's slow, try disabling animations (Settings/dev options/window & transition animation scale/unselect both) that should solve the problem 

V003 (28-11-2011) (troufiniou will be busy till next weekend, thats why this update came early.Idk maybe he may upload an update if he's free)
- The hardware buttons work great now, especially (un)locking the device (Thnx to tony-noob  )
- Vibrate works except if you're running on LDX kernel.
- Credits go to TimeWasterNL for testing and providing me these findings  !

- Smoother than V001  (tested with alfs kernel v05 (non-fcp)
