Clever you found the system.img file to be useful. Damn those Russians are f'cking sh't up in a good way
! I took only one semester of college Russian, and I wish I knew a lot more so I could read the forums. I suppose flashing Gapps
through recovery mode or something like that would be beneficial. But I don't have experience with that. What version of android you running? I saw the very first post of this thread there was no "brand" or "device" or some other strings. Is there a manufacturer
or other good strings in the phone? I attached an output of my /system/build.prop
as an example. If you could get more detail from build.prop or by another way then the information may be of use. I found some more files linked in the Russian I9500 forums. I don't know what they are or do, but have you tried these?
Thanks for the mention of Omni rom. I didn't know about that before.
Well, as you see my location I live in Minsk (belarus - so you can call almost Russia) but my russian is very bad, like pre-intermediate and still it hurts my eyes when I try to read cyrillic letters

As you see, I dont have anything useful in my build.prop because clever chinese friends thought they will trick customers by writing samsung there in the phone's build.prop but anyways, I will try to port cyanogen on my own, I'm a backend web developer but no experience on android so it will be good way to start, I think.
About Gapps, I read on some forums people can't update their google play store and other gapps because they are pre installed in system so they can't be updated.
But I'm afraid that when I update gapps they wont work and I'll have to pick whats necessary again and again so I'm kinda tired.
The one thing I'm happy with the phone is that battery is godlike. Survives 1,5 days and my previous phone (Note1) was like 10-12 hours a day barely. Now I'm happy but I dont know what'll happen in future.
