downloading! nice surprise for these cold days! thank you so much
is ist necessary to do a factory reset before updating from beta 2 to beta 3? Thx 🙂
It’s not needed! For me on Galaxy Gio updating from beta2 to beta3 worked without wiping anything, but at startup you have wait a few minutes with a popup “Optimalizing applications”
Very nice! I’ll install it soon.
Nice! Thank you!!
what do i need to install this from Gingerbread 2.3.6 ? please share info 🙂
first you need to root your gadget,
second, install CWM
third, backup your current ROM via CWM
fourth, play around with lots of custom ROMs
you should visit XDA for some good reading material….
@Invisor… No special magic needed 🙂 Just wipe cache, wipe system, wipe batt stats etc, then flash… Be sure to use CWM5 for flashing (to avoid probs) Cwm touch beta is the best so far & touch makes it so fast & fluid to use…
Do these things n you should have no problems 😉
@Invisor, forgot to say, if you are on stock gingerbread, then you will need to flash CWM & root also before using custom or kang roms… If you are already rooted & have CWM, make sure it’s CWM5 then follow my first instructions… 😛
how do you flash CWM on a galaxy ace ? pls help.. i’ve tried many things but didn’t work,,,
maclaw, yau are great now we have a perfect ICS (you have done what samsung didn’t)…..but now that AOSP ICS is perfect you will focus on JB or there will be other release of this ROM???
Thanks in advice
i think there’s still something to do. this is still beta stage ; )
Not perfect. @Maclaw, please fix the stock camera recording issue in next release.
Doing my best dude, really.
absoluty perfekt rom!!! Thanks 🙂
Is it safe to install?
Does not contain any malware, spyware or backdoor?
yep, nothing to worry about
Yes, it’s safe. This is a trust developer.
Thanks a lot! Why beta everything work
Maclaw your firmware the best, thank you for your hard work. Sorry for bad English
maclaw please make improve in videorecording :3
and make please some improvements in kernel battery drain :3
ty dude 🙂
2. The battery is perfect!
Rom’s almost perfect, just videorecording need to be fixed. Also the wifi takes a bit to switch on. Great, excellent work though, you made whst Samsung didn’t do.
Too bad, i discovered deep sleep isn’t working
Working, false report
Really? Cpu spy doesn’t see it activated…
Read my notice in the news.
“EDIT by Marcin: Hey! I noticed some people experiencing issue with deep sleep after installing the update. If you are affected by bug, please turn off Google location services. We’ll try to fix it in next release. Cheers!”
wow!!! you guys just rock! unstoppable crew!
Thank you for all improvement 🙂 Great Job !
What apps does this ROM include?
When you install this ROM, is a phone rooted then?
If it is, how to unroot?
Laugh enough… Make AOSP and the source are closed. Very Funny.Retards…
Excellent!! is almost a final version: D is amazing, it was worth the wait and your absence, came back very very very well. Thank you!
I have only two questions:
I can do as I reconosca the partition of my SD CARD?
As I can activate the toggle?
thank you very much
Using the partition, which application works?
So… I’ll ask for the second time. You say that the stock camera doesn’t record video, implying that other cameras would. The only two three available camera apps that have a video recording option do not work.
What app should I use? Why did you delete this comment earlier?
Maybe it was spam filter, I don’t have enough time to check all comments manually 😉
The best rom…its almost perfect..great job… i found that usb mass storage doesnt work or maybe just for me… its something else for improve battery life even more..
Thaks for all
Hi!! Im very excited for this release, i have one question… Stock app doesnt record video, so what app should i use for videorecording? Thanks for all your hard work 😀
Regards from Mexico
Sorry 4 my bad english
wow…..you guys fixed that thetering problem that no one was able to fix em…..
How can I get a2sd working on this?
+1 is a2sd working?
Yes, working, native and 3rd party apps.
for me its working dudu, muke babiks (try to flash again) 🙂
which a2sd app do you use?
how about s2e then?
and also – is it capable of using sd-ext?
Hey maclaw thanx for GA support.
Can u please add Indic language support or could tell me how to do it in your ROM.
nice update..installed without wiping.but got problem with link2sd.so had to do full wipe and reinstall….working ok till now
did you reinstalled the app?? or AOSP?? i had troubles with Link2SD too
Can anybody confirm whether amarullz script A2SDX working in this rom? I can’t seem to get past the boot loop.
I’ve installed it and nothing happened…
What the hell???
Does this ROM support ext4?
i don´t use cwm zip to install a2sd i put script via root explorer and always work 😉
and you must set premissions to rwx-rwx-rwx
I’ve tried so many scripts and none of them worked… so I have to use sucky Link2SD now..
Thanks a lot from italy 🙂
GPS, location service and location & google search still doesn’t work! Neither do automatic time zone!
works for me jing 🙂
Question about input languages, is there a way to install, add a input languange that is not in the list ?
It is awesome ROM, but I have problems with GPS and automatic timezone selection from mobile operator. Solving of timezone was simple by setting manual timezone. GPS is bigger problem, I cant lock GPS position in any app (google maps, gps test, compass) :(. I try clean dalvik and caches, than my ACE find one satellite in 5 minutes that’s all. .. At all, you are making great job ;).
Some bugs are always presented so when i write from landscape ti portrait there are a lot of bugs so i must to reboot my phone…
Hello Maclaw! Thanks so much and good job doing this. I dont even know where you find all this motivation =)
Ok i have something to ask… I have the CM9 rom, and with it, got a ton of contacts, apps and other stuff. Do you guys allways wipe it all or do you use any kind of program to backup everything and restore it all to the new AOSP mod?
Going to install it after answer..,.if i get it.
The easiest way to backup your contacts is to synch them with your Google Account and for the apps use Titanium Backup.
Alright! That was all i wanted to know. I already used titanium, but wanted to know if you guys also used it.
How can I apply this update over beta 2 without loosing any data? Thanks!
wipe cache and wipe dalvik cache without wipe data/factory reset
Correction to above post – Over Beta 1
Is this for s5830i or s5830?
thanks for you rom, anzing sekali ya,babiks lo taiks, cheers from alabata 🙂
Guys how to enable init.d support as it is AOSP…. So i think it will not have init.d support but could anyone tell how to enable it thanks
Is that Android 4.xx for the Galaxy Ace S5830?
Excelent work! Thank you Maclaw. I was waiting for a ROM with ICS for my Gio.
Working with beta 3 now, waiting for improvements.
Gallery app is very laggy (sometimes no thumbnail/preview and crashes), but all in all great rom!
I have same problem “Gallery app is very laggy (sometimes no thumbnail/preview and crashes)”. That not good, will u fix soon???
@ J-Hope: What is “Quickpick FTW!”
+1.. Experience the samething
+1, excellent rom by the way!
@maclaw does usb tethering work???
Really appreciate your work. Is there any way of getting the “Interface” menus back in the System Settings? I miss some of these options.
After the update some apps just don’t want to work: “Unfortunately, X has stopped”….these apps are a File Manager and Poweramp.What should I do?
and I can’t move apps to phone because it say that I don’t have enough space even though I have…
I discovered what was the problem with the stopping apps, but I still can’t move apps to phone…
Those asking abouth video recording app. That they can use tryvideocamillusion its working but not that good as quality of stock camera temporarily until its not fixed.hope its help.thank you again maclaw for this bestrom on our gio users
i’m havung issues with mobile data conection, it doesn’t conect with my provider.. personalization and good stuff?? keep working on this, it’s goergeous! regards
There is no init.d support so an app2sd script for sd-ext is not working. You can enable it by using init-term.sh from xda. Just download terminal emulator from play store and download init-term.sh from xda (the flashable init-zip for cwm is not working!). Then open terminal emulator and type: su
Then type: sh /sdcard/term-init.sh
Push enter and everything is done for you!
Duuuuude… If terminal instructions are too daunting, just install this Init.d Enabler .apk that I give you, Install it, run it, select “Activate” it will do it’s thing, click “verify” & Voila, you now have fully functioning Init.d support… You can now safely un-install Init.d Enabler.apk…
Just thought I would highlight the simplest method… This will work on any SGA rom CM7/CM9/CM10.1 JB/AOKP/AOSP…
Init.d Enabler.apk here : http://www.mediafire.com/?e13kwsxj27n64l8
Stay Breezy n Be Lucky 😉
Nice work guys: )
Does anyone know what’s causing games to crash without notification when loading a level? I had to go back to Beta 2 because I can’t play any games on Beta 3.
