Default Unable to install Custom ROM on my Galaxy Mini

Hi,

Today for the first time i have updated my mini using the Samsung Kies to Android 2.3.6. After that i rooted my phone and then installed CWM recovery 5.0.2.6. However, when i tried to install custom ROM i'm unable to do so. It stops in the first screen itself.

Before this i backed up my stock ROM and now when i'm trying to restore it..it got stuck in the Galaxy POP GT-S5570 screen.

Please help..

Flash new firmware with Odin.

LOL, firmware is .md5.

Custom ROM is .zip. Next time you need to read. Of course you will get Gingerbread ! Who is saying Galaxy Mini is getting official ICS and JB ? That's impossible.

Just updated my mini by downloading firmware DDKQ7 (Asian Region) and was able to get things back for my phone. Now, as i would need your advice as what different should do now to install Custom ROM. No one has mentioned in their posts the prerequisite firmwares.

Install custom ROM ? Isn't you already did it ? Just never do a backup for Stoc ROM.

this flashing seems to be very different from what i do with my Xperia mini pro..where i have to use different kernels for GB, ICS and JB..not sure how it works for Samsung mini.

Also, i did installed custom rom before but it did go beyond the first screen. Now, that i have flashed firmware, i have to again root and install custom recovery..which i did now..Now i want to install custom ROM.. can i flash ROM CM7.2New Experience v6.0 by autoradio78 directly using CWM recovery on the same firmware?

Yep, Xperia devices need different kernels, and recovery is always bundled in kernel. While Mini doesn't, kernel is different part from recovery.

I suggest you flashing it CM7.2 by Mebitek since CM7.2 New Experience have some booting bugs. Firmware is doesn't matter, it's not like Xperia devices.
