WELCOME TO SLIM SERIES ROM'S
SLIM ? nah...SLIMMER
SLIM SERIES ROM's for Ace are inspired by the famous SLIM-ROM's by tchaari for all the High-end phones like, Nexus, S3 etc.
So I decided to emulate the ROM's for our Ace too.
Some big plus points or Observations according to me, from these highly-compressed and lite ROM's are =
1. Our phone has very less RAM to run ICS or JB in fully optimised manner. So these ROM's slightly fulfil that requirement. As the apps in these ROM's occupy very less RAM of around, 20 to 30 MB only !
2. Due to less RAM consumption, phone tends to be more responsive, smooth and faster !
3. Overall performance increases roughly around, 5 times !
4. If you are a benchmark believer, then AnTuTu scores were also slightly higher compared to the original ROM's
5. These lite ROM's along with any script like Adrenaline Engine, can boost your performance slightly higher.
6. These ROM's can be used as a daily driver, 100% !
7. Slim ROM's have slightly higher battery backup compared to the original ROM's. For me atleast, i.e; with minimal usage of phone.
NOTE - I use my phone only for phone calls and listening to music [A lot ! ]
8. So use these ROM's and decide what is best for you.
Thanks for supporting me.
9. There's nothing great about these ROM's. BUT, their SIZE speaks for them !
Slim CM7 = 59 Mb
Slim CM9 = 76 Mb
Slim CM10 = 83 Mb
Slim AOKP = 75 Mb
Slim MIUI JB = 95 Mb
Slim PAC_V2 = 81 Mb
Slim CM7 V0-1 = 50 Mb
Slim CM7 Official = 52 Mb
Slim CM9 RC4.1 = 75 Mb
Slim CM10 = 74 Mb
Slim AOKP = 69 Mb
Slim PAC = 79 Mb
10. I also wish to notify that, in future along with removal of bloatware, there might be significant changes in kernel specifically compiled for these minimal ROM's. I am still learning about Android so no promises, as this is all a pure-hobby, like everyone else's. . Also, i haven't touched framework a bit.. i altered only the system, permissions and kernel so that they are stable coz they are so small size..
11. All the rightful credits are in the second post.
12. All the downloads and download instructions are in the third post.
13. I have removed bloatware in to the maximum extent possible, but still if you feel there exists such an app which is useless, inform me, I will remove it
14. Finally, I ensure there was no warez used to create these ROM's
15. On a side note I removed all the boot-animations to conserve space. ICS & JB have their own in-built boot-splash. While in CM7 there is no such facility, the screen will be blank, so don't worry you did not brick your phone
1. Added SimpleSU root permissions, thanx to noop.
2. Reduced the file system to even lesser sizes.
3. File-manager pre-included in system
4. Extreme Bare-bones
6. Apex launcher
