The T-mobile Dart is a re-branded version of the Samsung Galaxy Mini, which has a working root with superoneclick, and clockworkmod, but the community hasnt offered very much for this phone when it comes to custom ROMs. the galaxy mini roms are not cross compatible but i feel like the could be ported over without to much work put into the mix. I wanted to start this thread to see if i could bring together some of our Dart users to try and create our own little category of roms for this phone. As of right now i know there is a semi-stable version of CM 7.1 for the dart with only a few issues (located here) but thats about it. my hope is that the ICS that is being ported to the mini could be adapted to our dart.

just for reference to install CWM you can visit this page for information on how to do that.

lets make this phone worth its dollar!

I care! I have a Dart I keep in the trunk as a back/emergency phone, haven't looked at it in months, but running ICS on it would be cool!

I am always ready to test on my Dart! Did you fix the bootloop?

I have a Samsung Dart that I flashed CM7.2. Here is my info:

MY flashed Dart
Model number: Galaxy Mini (SGH-T499)
Android version: 2.3.7
Mod version: CyanogenMod-7.2.0-RC0-dart-KANG
Build number: GWK74

spawk is working on his ROM for the dart

---------- Post added at 07:09 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:35 PM ----------

I went to system/app and noticed alot of apps with .odex

My question: Should I reflash with a Deodexed Rom that I found? (Deodexed_update-cm-7.2.0-RC0-dart-KANG-signed_Signed.zip) Would this make the Dart run better?

If I flash this deodexed rom, would I have to do the whole wipe data/cache devlik cache?

Wow.. Dart is coming back on the scene..

I m having it in a drawer somewhere and as my HTC Aria begins to have random reboots (linked to the heating I guess) I am thinking in a swap.. either if it is not the same kind of device, it may be a good thing to see ICS there.

Fyi I also have a Gtab 10.1 and a Gnote S.. but this is a side note.

While I have some java skills, and know a bit around Android, I could help on that, but I have no ROM development knowledge. If someone wants to involve me, let me know !

CM7.2 works great on the Dart! So much better than the stock ROM

If it's the deodexed version that someone here on XDA (sorry, can't remember who ) deodexed DashBlack's CM7 rom for me, I flashed and it wouldn't boot. By the filename, it looks like that's the one it is.

Yes, you would want to data/cache wipe, wipe dalvik, and then flash, then another data wipe for good measure. But I wouldn't bother, as I already tried all that and it wouldn't get past the small Samsung logo.

DB's CM7 kang is the best thing out for the Dart as of now, but being odex'ed is the only thing about it that bugs me. It drives me nuts that I have my Dart running a really awesome CM7 rom, but can't do all the really cool stuff like transparent status bar or status bar layout mods.
Still, it beats running stock Froyo with TouchWiz any day
