Overclocked to 1000mhz
Nova Launcher
Default Ringtone: Crank
Disabled power on and power off boot sounds
Bloat Removed
Theme Changes
Zipaligned
Replaced Samsung keyboard with the google keyboard (much better IMHO)

Working and tested. Tested on a S730M as well as a S730G

Flashing instructions:

1. Use CWM 6.0.3.1 Get it here https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B1Bx...it?usp=sharing, flash with Odin)

It's a nifty little phone. I personally think it's better than a Nexus S but just suffers from the typical Samsung pump and dump routine where they sold all their inventory to the carriers then stopped supporting it with any updates.

Good job! I have 3 versions of the stock ROM available for this device as well, may have been more appropriate for a base, there's stock, stock + root + Busybox, stock + root + Busybox + overclock. Find them here

If the cricket model you have is a GSM version then yes it should so long as its a S730M or S730G. If its a CDMA model then no.

It doesnt take a sim card so no GSM. Is there any other ROMs that you would know of? We are kind of stuck out with this model, it kinda sucks lol.

You may be able to use the same CWM recovery on that model,

you should be able to probably use the same kernel to overclock your model too, and you can probably use the kitchen app we used to cook these different version roms for the 730M and 730G models to do your own custom rom, just remember before you start working, to do a full nandroid backup of the current rom so you can restore it back to the original (mostly stock except for the cwm recovery) firmware if you need to later on.

By any chance this will unlock it or do you know a way for me to get the unlock using hex?

Thanks to doctor evil for this ROM I was able to flash my phone but not before removing more apps (bell apps and oothers ).

I was wondering if anyone was successful in unlocking the tethering? Tried a few things out there and the best I could get was Bluetooth tethering with foxfi.
