Just a quick question, before I root this piece of junk.. Coming from a CliqXT, I've had my share of deleting those pesky blur (bloatware) system applications. Just wondering, which apps did you guys delete just so I know I'm on the safe-ish side?

Could you please post a package with required files to flash insecure ROM and tutorial on how to do it? Sorry, never even heard of ODIN during my time with my old phone, but I flashed about 10 different kernels on it until I found the best one, and I used fastboot.

Odin is like the fastboot for Samsung devices. I haven't packed the boot.IMG into a tar.md5 yet because there is currently a flood in my basement, and my computer is on my desk and covered by all the stuff I had to save. Once I do pack it (with Cygwin) I will be unable to test it so be prepared for the worst just in case. I highly doubt that it would result in a brick because the boot.IMG was taken from a previous nandroid backup of mine.

I deleted Gmail, ChatON, Talk, Talkback, Samsung Apps, Samsung Push Service, Samsung Account (and everything related), and some more that I can't remember. You could also delete Touchwiz Launcher (SecLauncher2.apk) if you install another launcher in /system/app. Make sure if you replace the launcher that you install a new one before deleting the stock one.

Can anyone confirm if Mobile ODIN Pro works on this device?

So, basically, you removed everything Samsung. I was too afraid of breaking something, seeing as how it's the stock ROM, if I deleted Samsung Account and related. I only removed ChatON, that Shark something game, the TouchWiz launcher, and the stock browser. I backed up the launcher and browser though, just in case. Glad to know I can remove the other Samsung apps if need be.

I don't have much confidence in Samsung since they haven't released a stock firmware dump yet. We're all just waiting until there is a reliable Odin flashable firmware dump for our model. Once we do get one (whether officially or made by ourselves) I promise you that development will boom. The Ace 2 is a completely different device (they went from GB to JB, and we were always at ICS) but regardless, we should be able to build Jelly Bean 4.1.2 for the Ace II X (It may have to be vanilla JB though..), but it will take a while even once we have started. I'm not entirely sure about porting a ROM to a phone with completely different specs.. For now, just chill out, remove any bloatware and crap, and your phone should pretty smooth. Time is of essence.

CyanogenMod
Does anyone want to try this? It's pretty helpful to get someone started on making CyanogenMod. Even to just get it booting is an accomplishment. I'd try it, but I don't currently have enough spare time.

Using the guide found here, I have packed the boot.img into a tar.md5 file. I am unable to test it as a result of my current brick, but you should flash it the same way that you rooted your device, except put this kernel.tar.md5 file in the PDA section instead of the recovery.tar. I am not responsible by any bricks caused. It is your choice to proceed, and I have not tested the package so beware! If you are unsure about anything, do not proceed. Feel free to ask questions. And of course, this will raise your flash counter, so make sure that you have Triangle Away installed if you do not want the yellow triangle to appear at boot. Hopefully it works, so I can add a third thing to my signature below! Goodnight y'all!
