Welcome to the Samsung Galaxy Ace II x / GT-S7560M Unofficial FAQ!
-The Galaxy TREND GT-S7560 is also supported-

==>THIS IS AN OUTDATED PHONE AND THE LINKS/FILES BELOW MAY OR MAY NOT BE THERE ANYMORE<==

!!SEE POST #2 BELOW FOR LINKS

Frequently Asked Questions:
1- "Flash with CUSTOM RECOVERY (TWRP/CWM)" : If you still have the stock recovery, download and use Daver18qc's Root Kit Below to install a custom recovery from the CUSTOM RECOVERIES header in post #2.
2- "Flash with ODIN" : ODIN is inside Daver18qc's Root Kit *With Detailed Instructions* below.
3- "Push with ADB" : You need to download and install Android's Development Kit and then refer to the small tutorial below !

4- If you've got problems with ODIN or ADB, make sure that you have USB Debugging Enabled under Settings > Developer Options.
--Make sure you have only 1 device showing in ODIN (Only 1 little square filled at the top-left)
--Also make sure Kies.exe is not running on the computer!

5- [I]There are custom ROMs, such as CyanogenMOD 10 and 11, OmniROM 4.4, and more. There is no Lollipop ROM just yet, though it is slowly being worked on. A lot of work is needed to update our device code for Lollipop. You can find links to different custom ROMs for our device in post #2.
6- There is NO free method to UNLOCK SIM yet.

7- If you want to flash any deodexed rom with a custom recovery, you must first flash the complete corresponding ROM from SamMobile. That means deodexed Guatemala need to be flashed over Guatemala, not over Panama or Canada. Same goes for deodexed Australia.

8- If you get a Yellow warning triangle on boot after flashing something, use TriangleAway to remove it and reset the flash counter to 0. (On the page, use the provided TriangleAway apk file available for download at the bottom of the first post)

9- Flashing a ROM from Guatemala or Australia will not change your service provider, you will stay with Bell/Koodo/Rogers even if these companies don't exist in Guatemala.
10- Sometimes when flashing ROMS, your carrier will show as "Bell" even though you are on Virgin / Solo, this is normal as these are 2 sub-companies of Bell.

11- When you flash ANYTHING with a custom recovery, be sure to Wipe Cache and Wipe Dalvik Cache (advanced menu) before rebooting.
12- For ANY kind of flashing from a Windows computer, you will need the Samsung USB Drivers first and foremost, before doing anything else. If you're on Linux/Ubuntu, install Heimdall and search for tutorials for how to use it on XDA or Google.

13- If you have the Galaxy Trend GT-S7560 and CWM freezes while flashing a custom rom, then re-cook the rom inside the Kitchen with these tweaks:
Code:
For galaxy trend s7560

When building rom in kitchen, select Interactive Mode(1). after zipaling;

1. edit META-INF/com/google/android/updater-script in working folder and change " format("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p16"); " to " format("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p16", "0", "/system"); "
2. extract cm11 for ace 2x and replace META-INF/com/google/android/update-binary from cm11 to your rom
======================================END OF FAQ=============================================

Short Tutorials :

Buttons combinations (phone must be shutdown before !)
Download Mode : VOLUME DOWN+HOME+POWER
Recovery Mode : VOLUME DOWN+VOLUME UP+HOME+POWER

How to "Push with ADB" :
Install the Android Development Kit
Goto "platform tools" folder
Open a command prompt
Connect your phone with USB cable and USB Debugging enabled (developer settings)
Type in the command prompt:
-adb remount
-adb push "yourfilename" "/your/destination"
-adb reboot
example: "adb push SystemUI.apk /system/app/"


How to flash with ODIN :
-If your ROM is zipped, unzip it to a folder until you got a ".TAR.MD5" file
-Load up ODIN
-Shutdown your Phone
-Boot your Phone in Download Mode
-Plug in your USB cable, Odin should recognize the Phone and fill up a small square at the top left.
-Make sure only "F.Reset Time", "Auto Reboot" and "PDA" are check-marked in ODIN
-Load up your ".TAR.MD5" in the PDA section of ODIN
-Flash, wait for ODIN to tell you (Succeeded : 1, Failed : 0)
-Done.


How to flash CM11 (CyanogenMod11) by Alex150892 :
1.Install Australia MH3 stock rom with Odin
2.Download Root Kit and follow instructions inside (follow it carefully from beginning to the end)
3.Open cwm recovery and Wipe data/cache,and also wipe dalvik cache
4.Install CyanogenMod 11
5.Install 4.4 Gapps
6.(optional) Install ba2x kernel for CyanogenMod 11
7.Reboot and enjoy...
Note that first boot will take a while,so leave it for ~10mins

Links:

------CUSTOM ROMS-------
Note: None of the custom ROMs are bug-free. Some of them are more stable and bug-free than others though. Some common bugs among all the ROMs are lack of full camera resolution (the rear camera only captures images at 3MP instead of the 5MP in Stock ROM) and lack of bluetooth (our chipset doesn't support the newer bluetooth method used in Android 4.2+).
CyanogenMOD 10.2/11 by SeannyM UNSUPPORTED
CyanogenMOD 10.1 (Android 4.2.2) by jonypx09 UNSUPPORTED
CyanogenMOD 10.2 (Android 4.3.1) by Codename13 UNSUPPORTED
Beanstalk 4.4.275 (Android 4.4.2) by jonypx09UNSUPPORTED
CyanogenMOD 11 (Android 4.4.4) by jonypx09
OmniROM 4.4.4 (Android 4.4.4) by Codename13

------STOCK ROMS-------
(These are compatible with ALL countries and should be flashed if you want the latest version of ICS on your phone, regardless of where you live or who your phone service provider is.)
Stock firmwares from Sammobile
You Must register on SamMobile by clicking here first! (FREE)

Modified stock firmware "Stock II X Plus" by Codename13. It is deodexed, rooted, has init.d functionality, has ADB support, doesn't overwrite your custom recovery with the stock one, and other misc. changes, plus it shouldn't trigger the triangle flash counter.

If you install a stock ROM/firmware over a custom ROM and you get a bootloop, meaning you probably forgot to wipe data, and you're unable to boot to recovery, flash this package (by Codename13) with Odin to wipe your data partition, which should allow you to boot into the stock ROM.

------CUSTOM KERNELS-------
Sadman2's kernels for ICS 4.0.4 with GPU Overclock !
-Flash with CUSTOM RECOVERY, Wipe Cache and Dalvik Cache, Reboot.
V1: http://www36.zippyshare.com/v/15770700/file.html : OC CPU 1.2GHZ
V2: http://www43.zippyshare.com/v/33249511/file.html : OC CPU 1.3GHZ
V3: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bzq...it?usp=sharing : OC CPU 1.2GHZ GPU 275MHZ
V4: http://www11.zippyshare.com/v/61114227/file.html : OC CPU 1.3GHZ GPU 325MHZ


BA2X (Better Ace 2 X) 2.0 for Stock ROM by Codename13 UNSUPPORTED

SeannyM's Overclocked/Modded Kernels For Stock ROM(Flash with CUSTOM RECOVERY) UNSUPPORTED (I think)
[/B]-A vast range of frequencies to choose from, you can start with 1094mhz and if your phone is stable and doesn't reboot on it's own you can then go up a couple more until you get to a point where your phone won't boot, then you need to go back down in frequencies.
Most people seem to hit a wall around 1248mhz.
-To take full advantage of this Kernel, you should install No-Frills CPU Control
--Set the maximum frequency to the maximum possible
--Set the minimum to 240 or 320
--Set the governor to SmartAssV2
--Set the I/O sheculer to VR[B]

------CUSTOM RECOVERIES-------

(Delete /system/app/SecMMS.apk, Copy this file to /system/app/ and DON'T RENAME IT, then REBOOT!)
Screenshot of the CBASS15's AOSP Messaging


Dsixda's KITCHEN
You can deodex and customize almost any ROM made for this phone using this version of the Kitchen.
You will need a computer running Linux, either on the hard drive or in a virtual machine inside Windows.
You will need extensive knowledge of the Linux commands as everything is inside a terminal (a kind of MS-DOS command prompt)
If you don't know what Linux is, don't bother, this is out of your reach and nobody will teach you here.
Learn it somewhere else and come back here when you know where you're going with this.

DOWNLOAD 0.223 KITCHEN
DOWNLOAD EDIFY_DEFS FILE
-(The EDIFY_DEFS file is necessary to make a working ROM, you will softbrick your phone if you don't put this file inside your edify-defs folder in the kitchen folder.)


MANY THANKS TO : SeannyM, jonypx09, Codename13, OstrichX and all the others who made this possible!

till there is some way to unlock the GT-S7560m (hopefully soon)
may i suggest http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=1916
unlockclient co
self contained software (means no 24 hour wait for email) takes seconds to do

i searched and search for hours yesterday.. found that one post above
and pretty much nothing else.. the huge 240 page 7560m thread has people asking every second page.. no joke
more info needs to be given about this. and maybe some research on how to do it for free.. but in the mean time:
i took a chance and got it.. and was not disappointed at all (works just like youtube vid)



btw im just a frustrated end user, not affiliated with any company

Hi!
Thanks for pointing out where...
samsung-updates .com/device/?id=GT-S7560M

Im assuming this is the one im looking for
Galaxy Ace IIx GT-S7560M PGU S7560MUBAMG2

Unfortunately, the links on that site seem broken too... unless its me and i cant get them to work...

looking with the code "S7560MUBAMG2" i found a version PBS, CPA and TCP (panama, panama and mexico), all three have the same build date and change list numbers (05.07.2013 and 1230914)...
im downloading PBS version, its a 532mb file, is that right?... no wonder the device sucks that much... that image is bigger than the stock for my the TF300t... this **** is bloated

is this the same image as guatemala?

Can't seem to find the PGU anywhere... all links are to hotfile (which seems dead) or broken

thanks anyway...
i wanted to test the slimbean rom but guess i'll have to wait a while then...
the device is slow, but rather have a slow phone than a bricked one for not following the procedure right
this device

Well, couldn't the actual answer tell you exactly what you do once you've installed CWM...

I seem to have installed it — the Root Kit install finished successfully and there's one entry in Apps for "Superuser" that wasn't there before — but I can't actually do anything with it. How do you "Flash with CWM"?

AIUI, you don't need to use MG2. Try the third link (XSA) which will give you three options to download the MH3 firmware for Australia. That has three working download links.

You did it, since flashing with CWM puts the SUPERUSER program inside the phone. So if you have that, then you have indeed flashed with CWM, because it is the only way to flash the root package!
The instructions in the root kit apply to any other update/package that you want to flash with CWM.

@mertonv:
Use Australia MH3 instead. SAMMOBILE got their hosting server shut down so the links for stock firmware are invalid, but they are supposed to get fixed soon, i hope.

EDIT: The Australia Stock ROM link works at the moment, maybe you didn't LOG IN / REGISTER on SAMMOBILE before trying to download and that's why you don't see anything, but at this time, it works !

Bluetooth and Camera still broken/buggy?
Can anyone confirm that there isn't a custom ROM (10.2 or 11) where there are issues with Bluetooth and the camera? I know the FAQ says there are issues but that was in October.

Service
Since flashing CM 10.2, I haven't been able to get service and if somehow I manage I only get it temporarily. Can someone explain as to why?
