CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 2.3.7 (GB), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.
* Your warranty is now void.
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,

CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.
BroadcomCM is based on the CyanogenMod Project. Our goal is to create ROMs based on CyanogenMod Sources for Broadcom BCM21553 devices. All the source code for CyanogenMod is available in the broadcomCM Github repo. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

If you're going to reuse our work, which we're doing for free, be fair and give proper credits.
This is the only payment we're really demanding and we deserve it to be mentioned because of the countless hours we've put into this project.
Open-Source doesn't meant Out-of-Respect!!!
The broadcomCM team would like to thank everyone involved in helping with testing, coding, debugging & documenting! Enjoy!
XDA:DevDB Information CyanogenMod 7.2 - broadcomCM, ROM for the Samsung Galaxy Y GT-S5360
Many of you guys have expierienced problems while flashing things on my kernel, Roms and suhc. Due to all my works are based on EXT4 filesystem, you can't simply flash those ROMs you will need a procedure to be made, and that's what I'm going to explain:
NOTE: if you are on an EXT4 ROM jump to step 5. If you don't know, flash stock ROM and follow ALL the steps.
(RECOMMENDED) Be on a stock ROM, installation will be cleaner
Download THIS EXT4 tool, the Kernel and the Rom on your device.
Flash on Samsung recovery (or your recovery if you are not on stock), my temp. CWM.
When you are on the Temp. CWM, flash the EXT4 Formatter tool, so whole system will be converted to EXT4. (Stock filesystem is RFS)
After the installation, flash my kernel you have downloaded before.
When the Kernel is installed, go, on the CWM, to advanced --> reboot recovery (this will reboot the device, and turn it on on the new CWM of kernel)
Wipe data, cache and dalvik
(IMPORTANT) Go to mounts and storage, and make sure system is mounted (will show unmounted) mount it 2 times!
Go to install zip from SD Card, choose zip from SD card and install your CyanogenMod, AOSP, Cyanmobile, whatever your EXT4 Based ROM is. (MAKE SURE installation last more than 5 seconds, if is less than 5 secodns, your system is unmounted! repeate step 8).
After installation, go back and reboot system, if you made it good, ROM boots, so no problem on it.
That's the cleanest installation, there are other ways, but this one won't give you so much problems. Why do we have to make all of this? Because to run AOSP based ROMs (CyanogenMod or others), EXT4 is the best filesystem, so we need to convert RFS (Samsung) to EXT4, and this are the steps to do it perfect!
NOTE: MY kernel has a "bug", if you don't mount before installing, ZIP file won't be installed! Make sure everytime you mount system properly!
Many thanks to Lopicl.00 who created this EXT4 tool, useful for every noob user!
If you like my work or I help you, press the button, isn't this complicated?
While we are still waiting for Android L to be officially released, the first mentions of … more
