thanks to all the above the dream of runing android on i8000 came true. and because of their job we were expecting faster and faster, more and more efficient and smooth versions.
i followed their path. got a version, modified it, combined the best parts of each ROM and i am offering a new ROM much closer to be complete and less beta.

DETAILS ABOUT THE ROM
It is not based on frenkiedroid as far as i know but followed other path onto chinese ROMS. I think it is faster than any other ROM (tell me if not). It has achived score 1035 on antutu on my class 10 sd card (this is almost the speed of a native android phone using cm6 and this fast hardware)
According to measuments made using Benchmark & Tuning it is up to 56% faster compared to the already fast frenkiedroid

Tested
bluetooth
wi-fi
3g
calling
sms
radio
gps
usb connection
battery lasts up to 2 days

connect your phone with computer on usb disk mode for our sdcard της (alternatively you can select your storage, but here i describe sd-card installation)
install and run minitool
select your sd-card and erase all partitions.
create a) one partition primary fat32 (the sum of sd-card's mb minus 1533 mb), B) one partition primary ext4 for our android sized 1333 mb , γ) one partition primary linux swap with the rest 200 mb
select apply and wait
you decompress the file ROM and Tools.rar
We change the date of our computer on any date of sept 2011
we run ImageRecover.exe
select restore (normal) and next
search on your computer the disk, the folder that our ROM is stored ( .TBI file) and select it
on the new window select select the last down option
then on the new window select the partition of our sf card to install (this is the medium partition sized 1333 mb (will write next to it MBR1.....linux native) and click onto it and press next
On next window when see "all data on linux native partition lost" press "yes" and wait copying to reach 100%
reopen minitool an if after ext4 partition there is left some unused/unformated space (grey colour) delete linux swap partition and create a new linux swap primary partition including this time the previously seen unused space
when finish select settings on your phone and change usb connection mode on your phone to "my storage"
In the root of "my storage" we paste a) haret.exe, B) zImage, c) startup.txt from the folder "copy to storage card root" from the rar we downloaded and decompressed
Disconnect our phone from usb, enter "my storage" and run haret.exe
this is the end. android starts. hope you enjoy

Hi guys, any reports on testing this ROM?
I want to set up my old Omnia 2 with Android for my gf, so I'm looking for a stable and simple ROM for her.
Thanx.

You can try either my ROM or twister2 ROM from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2342764
they are both the same level

the fastest is mine
faster GPS in on mine (ms-based preconfigured)
wi-fi i think works a little better on twister
twister has preloaded facebook etc, while mine has only stock apps
mine has business (single) coloured menus while twister has fancy (multi) coloured menus

if you want to install optional apps that have ads and you are not expert on android then install twister
if you want to install apps that do not have ads (or have ads and you are android expert) you can choose mine

please not that some people mentioned that with my ROM their SIM card was not recognized. i am not sure if the same for your SIM, your country.

Only two ROMS to choose. so you need only a few hours to try them both and make your decision. the choise is yours

Samsung i8000 (omnia2) android cm6new rom v4
as I promised long ago to publish
SAMSUNG I8000 (OMNIA2) ANDROID CM6NEW ROM Version 4
- Support even more SIM
- Speed ​​improvement - response
- Corrected some errors
- Upgrading of most programs
- Show ics (ice cream sandwich - android 4.0.X)
- Arrangements for energy savings

The new enhancements took me some time and study. I8000 reaches its limits due to its old drivers that are already written for mobile identical hardware with it.
Hope you like it and I expect opinions and suggestions to version 5 if there will be any further developments. Otherwise I will try to assist in the plan for android 2.3 on our mobile.

Explanation photo below
1 = home screen (the background is black on purpose because the amoled screen thus consumes less energy. If you want to change select another background with as many black dots. Black and not just dark color.)
2 = dialer with ics theme, search function names and support many languagesk. Make it default dialer if you like it
3 = new android ics Task Manager (task manager). Appear with long press of home button. If you do not like replace it with the Advanced Task Manager or ICS Task Manager / Switcher. To open them again by long pressing the central button select Settings / Cyanogenmod Settings / Input / Long-press home settings / select custom application
4 = ics camera
5 = menu ics (holo launcher)
6 = ics settings

For those who want even more contemporary look can choose Active lockscreen or Holo Locker

I tried installing this on my Omnia II.

I successfully create the partitions on my SD card, but when I go to starting the process with the ROM file, it comes back with the error message:

"The image file requires an updated version of this program."

I grabbed the latest version just to try it, and I need to purchase a key to make it work.

Yes, I reset my computer clock to September 1st, 2011. Do i need to reboot the machine after the clock reset?

Everything else so far seems to work fine, and if this works even half as good as I think it will, props to you for getting this done. I hate hate HATE winblows 6.5 on my Omnia II, and always wanted android. I tried a few of the older attempts years ago, but nothing was every stable enough to keep it.

Thanks again for any help.

I tried this program, and again, comes up with the same error message.

I'm getting to the point where I have to change the date, then run image for windows, but it just keeps giving me that error.

I'm running windows Vista, could that be causing the issue? is there any other information I need to change or pay attention too?

I'm literally doing everything step by step, and yet its not working for me.

it's only 542.27 KB. how long time can get to download ?
even if you have dial up or the server is full you need seconds to download it
just make sure the time change is ok and better cut all internet connections before execute the program
