It will work most probably but having the latest firmware installed is recommended.

why people make all this custom roms with UI or sound from ICS or JB, if this GB, just leave original sounds and look, or make some new UI and sound by yourself, or just download some different stuff... All this looks like fake for me, fake JB... but anyways, + for AOSP Gingerbread look)

this mod change GlobalActions$4 to GlobalActions$99.
if I'm not mistaken, i8160 use GlobalActions$5.
i will try use this mod

I'll work after Eid al-Adha prayers
very busy

Hi,

I've been testing your ROM and everything works fine until now, GPS, WIFI, Music player etc. I'll continue testing.

I have some suggestions.

1 The battery % is completely impossible to read, it's way to small, I've seen battery mods with larger %.
2 The font is a little small I think original font is much easier to read.
3 Could we have screen off CRT animation?

Thanks for your work.
