A great ROM.. An excellent MOD as most said...the end of a journey... THE BIRTH OF MIRACLE V4
After 3 versions of MIRACLE, my quest has finally come to an end! It was a great experience modding this great rom by vo-1. I tried to tweak this rom and make it as good as it can be. I really think that it can't get any better than this. MIRACLE V4 was done with lots of love and long hours of reading and testing. I tried to examine all aspects of its functionality with my poor knowledge but very carefully. Personally, I am satisfied with the outcome but that's just an objective matter. There will not be a feature version of this rom as I need to start enjoying my phone after almost a year I got it. I also need to spent more time with my two daughters, I really need some sleep and... you know what? I think MIRACLE V4 is good enough and will be used for quite some time by many. Thanks all for you kind words and support, it's been a blast all this. Maybe I'll start a new project but not after a very long time. Start using V4, I stronlgy suggest you upgrade to this version. Enjoy your ACE!

=================================================
NOTICE 1: MIRACLE V4 works excellent the way it is. It has not been tested with other kernels, mods and tweaks. So I am not held responsible if you do such actions and mess things up. It already includes a lot of tweaks, so adding more will probably not have the desired results. Of course, messing with some tweaks values will not do any harm as long as you know what are you doing. PureMotive's Battery Mod has not been included as most of his tweak already exist in Adrenaline Engine. Also bare in mind that after applying ICSLayouts you can’t use any zipthemer or metamorph patches, otherwise you will end up with problems. But if you really want to, just flash the undo zip to get rid of the layouts and then use such patches.

=================================================
NOTICE 2: I wanted to make MIRACLE V4 just the way it is... a barebone rom. The rom is what it is. Do not ask questions why I didn't include this or that. If I wanted, I would have done that. I give you the freedom to do whatever you want with this rom. I have included though all original deodexed apps of this version in one zip which you can find at the end of this thread and by following tutorial in 2nd post you can easily replace them. Eventually I can't satisfy each and everyone in here. After all, this is my mod! I would also like to ask you to not spam this thread with questions that need to be asked in other forums of ACE.

=================================================
Changelog from V3 to V4:
Note: Original V3 thread moved to 3rd post

Visual Elements
-- New bootanimation made exclusively for MIRACLE V4. Lightweight, consists only of 4 frames!
-- ICS Theme by Achep updated to latest 032-build-408, modded by nutellabanane's with power widget buttons having toggles below them. I then downscaled them for not looking so big. I also modded Phone Options menu icons in this.

-- ICSTheme Original - 60% Transparency on Status Bar: I modded the same version already included in V4 to have 60% transparency if you want to use that with launchers that support transparency.

-- If you can't find your country code just choose the continent you live in (e.g. Europe, Asia, etc...)
-- Now GPS is locked in your country (or continent) and you'll get fastest gps ever!

NTP_SERVER=0.REGION.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=1.REGION.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=2.REGION.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=3.REGION.pool.ntp.org
SUPL_HOST=supl.google.com
SUPL_PORT=7276

Project MIRACLE
Current version: V3 (FINAL) 22.04.12
CyanogenMod 7.2 RC1 by vo-1 (26.03.12)
Modded by itasoulas


Download MIRACLE V3 via Mediafire

A few words
vo-1's rom, in my opinion, is the best CM7 we got so far. I decided to mod this rom to make it faster, smoother…better. I always liked the idea of a barebone rom cause user has the priviledge to add whatever he/she wants without having to delete unwanted system apps. After MIRACLE V1 and V2, and after long hours of reading various threads on XDA and other forums about tweaks, I experimented a lot with certain values and end up with what works best for Galaxy ACE. So now comes MIRACLE V3… the most balanced, fast, stable and lag-free CyanongenMod7. Thanks for developers here on XDA that gave me the permissions to use their scripts, tools and visual components to make MIRACLE V3 an awesome rom. Thanks also for members that supported my effort and provided me with hints and answers. I present to you MIRACLE V3 (FINAL)!

Full Specs of MIRACLE V3
-- Fully deodexed
-- 100% barebone
-- Very lightweight - Only 77,2MB
-- 137MB free internal storage and 86MB in system
-- Plenty of free ram available
-- Adrenaline Engine v3.0 included (1)
-- Additional tweaks in build.prop
-- Journaling disabled (2)
-- GPS/Sensors Patch included (3)
-- Frameworkmod (volume only) included (4)
-- Fixed double setup when phone first starts (5)
-- ICS Theme by Achep set as default theme
-- LauncherPro set as default launcher
-- Roboto font set as default system font
-- Colored icons in Phone Options Menu (6)
-- Blue lockscreen buttons (7)
-- Status Bar supports transparency
-- New lightweight bootanimation (same as V2)
-- Google Play Store 3.5.16 included (original and bug fixed, check Bugs)
-- added vpnservices cause this is really important to some
-- extras at the end of this post (good stuff there + ics layouts)

More Info
(1) I edited the build.prop tweaks in S98system_tweak file. Deleted some tweaks and changed some values
(2) Journaling of ext4 partitions is disabled via an init.d script. The difference between skynet28 patch and my script is that the first disables journaling once and permanently while mine disables journaling at each boot. I’ve contacted him via pm and told me that the script would work just fine and same way as his patch.
(3) I edited GPS/Sensors Patch and updated sources from XXKPT stock rom. All hw libraries from vo-1’s rom were deleted and replaced with libraries from XXKPT
(4) I replaced framework.jar with the one from LPFinch’s frameworkmod that was created for 19.03.12 vo-1’s rom. So now you have 30 volume steps for music/radio
(5) Deleted provision.apk so you don’t have to setup your phone twice after first boot. That was an issue oocuring on original vo-1’s rom
(6) I edited framework-res.apk and replaced "Phone Options" Menu Icons with colored ones taken from Mixer Theme by MrDSL
(7) I edited framework-res.apk and replaced lockscreen button with blue ones taken from SteelBlue Theme by edint3000 (Team Carbon)

System apps that have been removed (37 in total)
ADWLauncher – Androidian – Calculator – Camera - CMStats – CMUpdateNotify – CMWallpapers – Cyanbread – Developrment – DSPManager – Email – FileManager - Gallery3D – GenieWidget – GoogleBackupTransport – GoogleFeedback – GooglePartnerSetup – GoogleQuickSearchBox – HTMLViewer – LatinImeTutorial – LiveWallpapers – LiveWallpapersPicker - MagicSmokeWallpapers – MediaUploader – Mms - Pacman – Protips – Provision – QuickSearcBox – RomManager – Stk – Talk – Torch – VisualizationWallpapers – VoiceDialer - YouTube

Installation procedure
1. Βοοt into CWM5 Recovery
2. wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache/dalvik
3. format cache/data/system/sd-ext
4. flash MIRACLE V3.zip
5. reboot
6. almost done!
7. Finalize GPS configuration by following TURORIAL 1 - 2nd post.
8. Now it's done...enjoy!
Check 2nd post for tips/faqs and troubleshouting

Bugs (fixed)
Google Play Store - Method1: Once phone boots for first time, do your google account sign in, and open Google Play Store for the first time. Accept Conditions and then close it. Use link2sd or similar app to clear Google Play Store's data and uninstall it. Reboot phone. Then via root explorer place it manually on system\app and change permissions (do this as described in TUTORIAL 5 - 2nd post. Advanced users already know how to do this). Reboot phone. We do all this cause otherwise Google Play didn't update some apps before like Superuser. Now works perfect! Vending.apk is also attached at the end of this post
Google Play Store - Method2: Once phone boots for first time, do your google account sign in, and open Google Play Store for the first time. Accept Conditions and then close it. Use link2sd or similar app to clear Google Play Store's data and uninstall it. You can also do this, from Settings, Applications. Reboot phone. This works for some users also so either method1 or method2 would do the jod. I suggest first try method2 cause it's easier and then if it doesn't work do method1

Screenshots (including layouts)












Extras
-- For those who want some or all default apps that were removed from system,here are the links for all default system apps. Links includes all original deodexed apps that existed in system\app
Download via Mediafire
Small correction: This link trully contains original system apps. That means original systemui.apk that has no transparency. The default systemui from MIRACLE V3 that supports transparency is attached at the end of this post if someone ever need it.
-- For those who want Status Bar with transparency supported, centered clock and centered date here is the link. I personally edited the status_bar.xml and works great.No overlapping of date over clock, no overlapping when receiving any kind of notifications but if too many icons on status bar then they will overlap clock.
Download via Mediafire
-- ICS Layouts for MIRACLE V3 (for original systemui, clock on right)
Download via Mediafire
-- ICS Layouts for MIRACLE V3 (for modified systemui, clock on center)
Download via Mediafire
-- Some icons packs that I already have and thought it would be nice to share so you can change your dock bars icons or some apps icons
Download via Mediafire
-- Some of the wallpapers I already have in my collection and sharing with you
