Okey friends, its finally here, Version 2.0.......
Based on XXJVT 2.3.5 base.
Its specially for 'indian' users.
please try this rom out....



Base-2.3.5 JVT
Modem-DDJV5
CSC-DDJV9
Kernel- Darkcore 4.1
lots of modifications...

I've removed a few useless apps from samsung, and added a few good ones,
and you can also customize it yourself before flashing it.
You can flash it through recovery, if you are using custom recovery like cwm, etc...
Please give it a try, hope you'll like it.

I've removed some apps from samsung that i thought were useless, but if you want, you can add them to the rom before flashing it (procedure given below).


It includes:
  1. Kernel- Darkcore 4.1, which includes voodoo sound v10.
  2. 0Both latest Indian modem and CSC (from ddjv9)
  3. overscroll glow (blue).
  4. RAM Booster patches. and SD card Speed Fix.
  5. Lagfix, Superuser, Root, BusyBox, etc inbuild.
  6. Almost no FC's
  7. Good Battery backup.
  8. Remove all the useless Samsung bloatware, specially the Touchwiz 3 UI, which i so hate...making it fast.
  9. Extended Power Menu.
  10. BLN notification. (you need to download the BLN app from market)
  11. Added some apps (latest Versions) - GO Launcher EX, File Expert, VooDoo Control, etc.
  12. Stock browser with user-agent selection and unlimited tabs.
  13. Heavily Themed Dialer, Phone, SMS app, Jog Tabs, etc. Transparent effect.
  14. Statusbar icons from my previous rom, the "all circular" ones.
  15. Pattern Unlock icons changed to FroYo, i liked the transparent froyo look better than the dull gingerbread look.
  16. 14 Customizable statusbar toggle buttons. ( use "QuickPanel Settings" app in the rom).
  17. 'Galaxy S - Bios Load' Boot animation.
  18. SMS - No contact limit + No MMS convert after 3 sms.
  19. Extended PowerMenu + CRTOff + Clear Glass Lock.
  20. Dialog boxes and pop-up windows have black crystal-glass transparent look.
  21. Lots more fixes, can't remember them all right now.


HOW TO INSTALL:
If u do not have CWM recovery, ie.-
if you are using "STOCK" rom, ie the official samsung rom, (or any rom that does not has CWM recovery), flash CWM Recovery first-
[If u have CWM recovery already, skip to STEP B.]

STEP A:
Flashing CWM Recovery....
**IMPORTANT NOTE** - Before flashing the CWM kernel, make sure you copy the rom zip file [ STEP C, Part 1 ].
CWM recovery kernel is a bit unstable and can sometimes give problems but its only role is to provide CWM recovery and when you complete step C, the kernel is replaced by DarkCore kernel which is very stable and the problem is solved.So if your phone goes into a boot-loop after step A, directly go to step C and complete the procedure.
  1. Download "CWM recovery.zip" (link given below).
  2. Extract the zip, there are two files- "odin" and "pda"....
  3. Open odin, and in the window that appears, press 'PDA' button and browse for the 'pda' file from the zip.
  4. Then put your phone in download mode as follows-
    1. Turn phone off.
    2. Hold Volume Down.
    3. Now hold Home.(while still pressing the vol down key)
    4. Now hold Power.(while still pressing both the previous keys)
    5. Wait until you see samsung logo.
    6. Release Power. (still holding onto others).
    7. Wait until you see the download screen.
    8. Release other buttons.
  5. Then connect your Phone to pc, through usb,,,, odin window should show a yellow line now, after that, press 'start' on odin. When the flashing is complete, your phone will automatically reboot — and when you see the Samsung logo, you can safely unplug the cable. Plus, you’ll get a PASS (with green background) message in the left-most box at the very top of the Odin.
  6. IMPORTANT Note: If ODIN gets stuck and doesn’t seem to be doing anything, or you get a FAIL message (with red background) in ODIN, do the following:
  7. Disconnect the phone from the PC, close ODIN, remove battery, re-insert it, turn phone on in Download mode again, and do the procedure again from Step 5.


STEP B (OPTIONAL):
Selecting which apps you want to install in the rom-
  • Download the System apps (link given below).
  • Extract the "Rom zip file" (link given below) {Latest is v2.0, but can also install older versions if u want.} to some folder,,, it should contain 5 folders- data, meta-inf,script,system,updates.
  • Go to folder 'system' -> 'app'.There u'll see some .apk files.samsung had many useless apps included in the stock rom, and i remove some of them to make the rom fast. but if you want them back, open the 'System apps.zip' file (link given below), and simple copy the ones you want back from that folder to the 'System' -> 'App' folder in your extracted rom files.
  • Now, for example, lets say, u don't like the Default samsung 'Music Player' and u use some other player from market. now, that default player is just a waste for you, cuz u don't need it and it's consuming precious space, so u can delete the "musicplayer.apk" file in 'System' -> 'app' folder in your extracted rom, so that it wont install.
  • After that, go back to the extracted rom files folder, and select all the five folders- data, meta-inf,script,system,updates. and right click-> send to -> compressed(zipped)folder.You'll get a new zip file, rename it to "Romv2.0", now when you flash it,,,, u'll have all the apps u wanted to (the ones you put in 'app' folder in system folder of your rom).So u can chose which apps you want and which not.

If u wanna know which .apk file corresponds to what app, search around on xda, or ask me....
Do not try to delete just any random apk from 'System' -> 'App' folder, as it might be some vital system app. Do it only for the ones you are sure about. ask me if any further queries.

STEP C:
Flashing the rom-
  1. Copy the "Romv2.0.zip" to your phone (internal sd card {16GB}, not external)
  2. Go to "recovery mode" as follows-
    1. Turn phone off.
    2. Hold Volume Up.
    3. Now hold Home.(while still pressing the vol down key)
    4. Now hold Power.(while still pressing both the previous keys)
    5. Wait until you see samsung logo.
    6. Release Power. (still holding onto others).
    7. Wait until you see the Recovery screen.
    8. Release other buttons.
      In recovery mode, use volume keys to go Up or Down, and Power key to Select something.
  3. Select 'Install zip from SD card'
  4. Browse to "Romv2.0.zip" and select it.
  5. Let the process finish.
And voila, you are done.!!!

CHANGELOG

v2.0

1. Base changed to latest XXJVT, modem to DDJV5.

2. Kernel is now Darkcore 4.1

5. Customisable statusbar toggle buttons.
