Galaxy Ace 2 i8160 - Custom ROM for ZSLG1 baseband
Hi, I created this thread to the Android Q&A section since there is no Ace 2 development Sub forum.
First of all, I made this ROM specifically for the Galaxy Ace 2 GT-I8160 with a baseband of ZSLG1 which is from Hong Kong.
The reason I made this ROM started with a severe scrolling problem with all Galaxy Ace 2 here in Hong Kong installed with the I8160ZSLG1 firmware, scrolling continuously is not possible because as soon as you scroll while the menu list is still moving or scrolling, touchscreen becomes unresponsive, unless you re touch the screen. this ROM has no BusyBox installed, its just a stock ROM with same UI, same funtionality
This ROM is based on the ZSLG1 build with files from the latest build I8160DXLH2(Aug. 14, 2012)
Here's the list of changes:
-scrolling bug fixed
-STOCK UI(Same functions, same look and feel)
-Zipaligned APK's before packing
-Updated APK's, Frameworks, all files from bin folder, and some files in lib folder from the latest I8160DXLH2 ROM
-disabled ScrollingCache for smooth scrolling(modified framework.jar, not a build.prop tweak)
-disabled all camera sounds including autofocus
-Samsung bloatwares REMOVED
-make a backup of your phone, also download a Odin flashable firmware just incase all thing fails
-flash a custom kernel with CWM recovery
-format /data, /cache and /system
-wipe dalvik cache
-wipe battery stats
-unmount all volumes
-flash the ZIP file and wait it to finish
-reboot(startup takes long time since dalvik is being rebuild)
-when booting is done, setup your phone, language, time, etc.
-before installing apps, reboot phone.
if installation fails at CWM recovery, pls try installing the ROM again.
NOTE: Kies over Wifi is removed, clicking on it from the menu will force close the settings application.
WARNING: BusyBox is partially supported using the busybox installer, however, there are many chances that it will make your device bootloop. Don't attempt to flash this ROM to a different baseband, your phone will still work but you will not have a GSM/3G/Network signal.
