A new version is out, the Elite V8 Beta. For making easier the use of each version, a new thread has been started

I'm not the developer of this great ROM. But I consider that it's so good that it must appear in the XDA forum. The developer is ELITE, and he has authorized to me for uploading. I think that everybody would have the opportunity of knowing it.

Until now, this is a Beta development, and each version is incorporating different kind of improvements. Sometimes the ROM control is in on the versions, sometimes is AOKP, sometime Codename, sometimes the Toggles and Dialer T9 are incorporated, others not. It's very important to understand this. Surely this is the best ROM ever for SGS, but now is under development, and we all must understand this. If you like a concrete Beta version, maybe you must keep on that until a RC is out.

This V8 Beta incorporates great technical improvements that makes that our SGS works as never before, and although it's a Beta for daily use, it's a little more rude than others (i.e beta V6). You must be conscius of this

In the follow links you can see and get this new ROM, developed under the NEXUS base IMM30B (4.0.4) for Galaxy S, based on FoxHound (Galaxy Nexus Modacco)

- ELITE, the developer, recomends to install the 8.0 as a clean ROM, starting in the number 1 of the installation instructions. He says that the systems gors better, more RAM, modem ok..

Installation instructions (IF YOU COME FROM AN ICS ROM IT'S NOT NECESSARY THE STEPS 1 TO 4, YOU CAN START ON 5) Nothing special must be done for flashing, this ROM is as other ICS roms

1 Keep a copy of efs folder for security
2 Reboot in recovery and data factory (it's not obligated, but could be interesting to format all from mount/storage)
3 Turn off the phone and restart download mode.
4 Flash the ROM JVU (http://hotfile.com/dl/140301534/be8872c/I9000XXJVU_I9000OXAJVU_OXA.rar.html Password: samfirmware.com) in download mode from odin with marked repartition and reboot the mobile. Shut it off and reboot in download mode again, from odin flash now cf-root on pda without repartition. (http://download.chainfire.eu/132/CF-Root/SGS/CF-Root-XX_OXA_JVU_2.3.6-v4.3-CWM3RFS.zip)
5 Once mobile is restarted, we debug (this is very important, you must mark debug on in the SGS) and copy the "4.0.4 beta" in the internal sd and reboot in recovery.
6 Wipe factory reset, cache partition, Dalvik cache and we flash "4.0.4 beta"
7 If do not start, press the 3 button to return to recovery and repeat step 6.
8 Open the app NSTools and select as governor and Scheduler Smartassv2 VR or that you like.
9 Enjoy ..

TO MAKE VIBER WORKS Thanks to mcse_hst and thaidroid

- Modify build prop (i.e with Root Explorer, it is in System dir and with R/O) and replace "GT-I9000" to "SGH-I9000"
- Fix permissions [DALVIK & CWM] (in Advanced option)
- CAUTION: With this change, Viber works, but it's possible that others app doesn't (somes games surely)


1. Banana ICE v3 Beta by Jorgefc82

This is the Spanish Link for the thread http://www.htcmania.com/showthread.php?t=354167
It's only the theme, not a ROM, automatically wipes cache/dalvik and makes a backup of the original

In the htcmania thread you can see a lot of screenshots of this great theme

Link: http://depositfiles.com/files/6gs898gmw

2. Theme Buttercream by Golfslicer
This theme has been created for captivate, the author confirm that it works perfectly in the SGS I9000. "I made this for the captivate, but should work fine on this rom as it doesn't change anything that will affect this version of the rom" golfslicer


3. Toggles

The toggles for 7.1 can be installed in the V8: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=23413334&postcount=1
