Hi Guys,

I bought this Samsung S advance phone by reading & believing it's spec that it will be best mid range phone. But after a week I realized that this is anyone of the worst phone in terms of performance... Too much lag for any activity on this phone, games lag like hell, phone dialer taken 10-15secs to open and what not...

Somewhere, I read that rooting a phone and installing new ROM and some flashing cards can improve the performance of this phone. I'm totally noob in terms of rooting and flashing a mobile. So I need some help.

Can anyone please suggest me, how to do rooting and installing best ROM(i read CyanogenMod is best rom) without missing out any phone features like...many said wifi not working or camera not working after installing ROM.

I know many people might have asked this question and there could be many threads floating around, but its too much confusion for a newbie to understand all this.

So I request any kind soul, please provide steps to do rooting and installing custom rom for a newbie. :eek:

Thanks in advance

Model - GT-I9070

1st -Root your device (You can do it from stock recovery)
2nd -Download CoCoreE 8.2 kernel and put zip in External Sd
3rd -Download Temporary CWM of Shaaan
4th -Go to recovery mode (Vol up+Home+Power) and flash Temporary CWM
5th -Then flash CoCoreE 8.2 and reboot

Feel smooth and ENJOY on JB!

I keep this in notepad, to copy/paste. :angel: :D:D:D

1. ROOT. You need to use external SD card, because stock recovery can't use internal to install zip.
2. Download CoCore-E kernel, this onehttp://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=2272049&d=1379752265.
3. Unpack zip, and copy kernel.bin.md5 to your phone
4. Install ES file explorer and Universal kernel flash - you can look on its thread if you do not find out how to use it - here. It is simple, tap on Select kernel, choose ES file explorer, find where kernel.bin.md5 is (you copy it, remember where was that), tap on flash kernel image, reboot.
5. Install No-frill CPU, open it and set Governor to PegasusQ and IO Sceduler to SIO.
