Note -
1) This is probably the last and final version of StockLite. I got a Note II few weeks back and therefore I will develop for Note II in the coming future. Although I'll fix the bugs, there wont be any v9. Dont expect a new version and dont ask for it either.

2) No need to flash stock ROM via ODIN to flash this ROM. You can flash this ROM directly. You wont face any problems even if you flash this on a custom ROM.

3) ETA? No ban on ETA now. Ask for ETA. You'll surely get flamed by Galaxy Ace's Offtopic mafia i.e. Elite Trolls Alliance (ETA)

4) If you find any bugs in statusbar or lockscreen, report them here - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1845603 (They are a part of Parasmi's mod)

5) If you want to boost your 3G speed, try this tweak - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1827675

Here's a Stock light-weight ROM targeted at those users who love speed and stablity.


Download v8 - http://www.mediafire.com/?b8abzidyajb1d7r

No mirrors allowed without my permission. If you need a mirror, PM me or post on the thread.



Procedure -

1) Download this file and place it in your sd card.

2) Make sure you have ClockWorkMod recovery 5 (or any other recovery based on CWM5 such as PX Recovery) installed and
your device is rooted. Download CWM 5 from here - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=18167974

3) Switch off your phone.

4) Boot into recovery mode by pressing home+power button simultaneously.

5) Wipe Data, Wipe Cache

6) Select 'install zip from sd card' and then select 'choose zip from sd card'

7) Navigate to the downloaded file and select it

8) Wait

9) Reboot

10) First boot will take a lot of time, around 5-7 mins or maybe more. Please
be patient and do not think that your ace is bricked.



Features -

1) Based on latest stock XWKTM 2.3.6

2) Very fast and ultra-stable

3) Awesome battery life

4) Deodexed

5) Battery Extender v1.2 kernel by LibiSC

6) Screenshot functionality- take screenshots by pressing Home+Power
button simultaneously.

7) Zip-aligned

8) BLN support

9) 70 MB free in system/app. That technically gives you more internal
memory.

10) ROM's download size is just 90MB (approx.)

11) Hacked 'hosts' file to disable ads

12) Galaxy Note style lockscreen

13) Very fast boot-time (25-30 secs)

14) Extended Power Menu

15) NotificationBar Toggles mod

16) Multiple lockscreen mod

17) Latest version of Google Play (3.10.9)

18) 'FullScreenPhoto when calling' mod

19) ICS style call screen

20) Battery tweaks

21) Wi-Fi tweaks

22) Speed and performance tweaks

23) Swipe to clear notifications mod added

24) Modded Stock sms app (mms.apk) with no mms auto-convert, unlimited recipients support, skins support.

25) SGSII Camera app and Calculator

26) Barebones - It has always been :P


This ROM is meant for performance and speed. Its just stock ROM with no theming, I've removed useless apps to make the ROM faster. This ROM has got an extra adrenaline shot


Following apps have been removed to provide more internal space or increase ROM's speed -

1) Some useless widgets
2) Live wallpapers
3) Memo (you can install other better memo apps from market if you want)
4) Thinkfree Office
5) Swype (new and better versions available at beta.swype.com)
6) Samsung apps
7) Email app
8) Protips
9) Unified inbox aka social hub

Gmail, Google Maps, Google search , Voice Search and Youtube app have been removed to decrease ROM size. These apps can downloaded manually from market if needed.


BUGS -

1) No bootanimation. I know how to fix the bug but I dont have time to fix it. Just flash any other kernel and bootanimation will re-appear.

2) ROM doesn't boot after installing adrenaline engine. Reason - unknown.

3) Statusbar clock is invisible. ( It's a known bug and is noted by the mods maker in his thread.)
Fix - Go to settings,statusbar tweaks, clock color and just set it to whatever you want. It will appear.



Some reviews by users -

Stocklite can compete with any "lag-free super optimized" rom out there and it'll win hands down.

Thanks for your work. I totally recommend this to everyone that are reading.
