For the first flashable stock ROM for this device CLICK HERE

UPDATED

This is the first working flashable ROM for this phone that I am aware of.

Thanks to @shifattk and @FitAmp for the overclock

Thanks to @Restl3ss, who is working on a rooted and overclocked, otherwise bone stock ROM

^^^Used boot.img from the above mentioned


Based off stock 4.0.4.


Rooted
BusyBox
Overclocked to 1000mhz
Root Browser
New Launcher
Apollo Music
Default Ringtone: Crank
Bloat Removed
Theme Changes
Zipaligned


Many more changes to come!
Stable
Working and tested.

Flashing instructions:

1. Use CWM 6.0.3.1 (get it here, flash with Odin)
2. WIPE DATA/CACHE
3. Disable signature verification (signed version to come)
4. Flash
5. Wipe Dalvik.
6. Reboot
7. After initial setup, hit menu, go into preferences, scroll down and hit restart launcher. The default preferences have been modded for great performance, but don't auto load. After launcher restart, default preferences stay permanent, you only have to do it after first boot. Or change them to whatever you see fit!



Hit thanks if you enjoy!

As always, I am not responsible for you bricking your phone. Odin is not a toy, CWM Recovery is not a toy. Installing custom ROMS is relatively easy, but if you are unsure what you are doing, do some research on XDA or Google BEFORE you start messing around. This ROM is working and running on my S730M and I have had no problems so far.

Thanks! It was plagued with issues to start, just trying to get a flashable zip of the stock ROM together was a nightmare, and since there wasn't one any where on the internet to use as a base, well... had no choice but to make one. I'm going to release a non over clocked version as well. This one is still close to stock with a few mods and tweaks, so enjoy and I'll keep working away at bringing a true custom to this phone

Thumbs up
Good Job!
I flashed it on my Discover today and it worked flawlessly.


By the way, I didn't make the OC script. It was FitAmp, the credits should go to him.

What launcher did you use? and good job on making a working rom for it, I had been messing around with trying to cook one in the kitchen app for the SS730G. I may give that one a shot with flashing this one, the stock rom on it is having issues anyways as when I try to shut it down it reboots 9 times out of 10.

Launcher pro, the only launcher I will use since I bought my first droid, runs clean and light. There's always the option to change to whatever launcher you like, for me, on this phone, runs the smoothest and that's what I'm going for here. Many changes still to come!

Kitchen is a great tool for learning AS LONG as you take a look at every change you implement with kitchen, in the update or updater script itself. The one thing about it is, that if you fully rely on kitchen, even if it does work, you won't learn a thing. All of the changes kitchen makes, can be made in terminal and text editor (Linux) to give you some hands on experience

I'm partial to the Nova Launcher myself, but I know what you mean. While the stock launcher is better than the standard Samsung Touchwiz crap, it definitely could use a speed increase on this phone.

I keep hoping and dreaming that someone will be able to port KitKat to this phone. I just flashed the current SlimKat rom on my Nexus S and I'm impressed with how fast the Google Now launcher performs on it. Maybe with this one overclocked to 1GHz and it having 512 megs of ram which I think is a little more than the Nexus S had it would make a different.

Kit Kat was built to run on 512mb, from everything I've heard it utilizes memory way better than any other version yet. I'm going to look at porting ROMs to this device, but one project at a time . It should be possible though. Even if I can port a stock 4.4.2 and start customizing from there, I think this phone would benefit tremendously from it, more so then newer more powerful devices.

I flashed my 730G with this rom, so far it looks good. I may switch the launcher to a different one but other than this it looks and appears to run fine. I can't test the radio at the moment as my net10 sim is cut down to nano size and I can't find my regular sim to nano sim adapter. I know I have one but finding it will be the fun part.

Double check the Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS etc, make sure they turn on and work. They should as they work fine on the 730m, but you never know. I haven't seen the build.prop for the G
