I have looked at the FAQ and read through several hundred posts. I had a few simple questions that were not answered in the FAQ and any of the posts I have encountered, which is why I asked them:

- should I unlock the SIM before trying to root and load a new OS?
- Will the CM11 be more responsive?
- for my limited need described in http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=67109735&postcount=7022,
do I need to go to all this trouble or is there an easier way to unbloat it without major mods.


It is always better to unlock SIM if you can.
Flashing CM wont unlock it.
Root it and remove bloat.
If you are unsatisfied flash CM11.

If you wish to do unbloat the easy way search for deodexed stock ics on xda for 7560m there is one or two laying around.

Hey guy, I don't know a lot of rooting and stuff, but I managed to get cm11 on it but the real problem is that the android version is stuck at 4.4.2.
And I need 4.4.4 to play Pokemon Go
Do someone have a "newer" cm?

Yes there's an OmniRom 4.4.4, i'm actually running it on my ace 2x; Just look through the FAG post for the ace iix and you'll find it there

Hello, it seems that CM11 and omnirom 4.4.4 final have problems with Viber. I have restored it with TB i saw it freezing the phone, that i tried fresh install and also i got my phone stuck. WhatsApp is working great, msg, calls. Can somebody confirm me this problem and can it be somehow solved? I also tried installing earlier versions of viber, can not pass activation because they are old, Viber forbid activatinf with version 3, just like whatsapp did with earlier versions, pitty.

Twrp 2.8.0.1,it's in codename13s build post.
Also you might experience soft reboot when turning on the bluetooth but that was fixed by @kengnatural just replace omnis bluetooth.apk with this one (fixed by ken) and you're good to go.

Hi PAvle i changed bluetooth but now i can not turn bluetooth on? I replaced in system, app, bluetooth.apk, anddid reboot. Also cleaned cache, dalvik cache in recovery.

Hi, solution is to flash bluetooth zip in recovery, same author, same apk. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=65131625&postcount=1302

I found out viber version 4.3.3 is working on Omnirom....

You probably didnt set permission,but if you flashed it you are good to go.

@kengnatural and I were investigating this Viber (also Skype and FB Voip and video upload,Instagram video upload) issue and made little workaround/hack.
Download ths and put it in /system/lib set permissions.Youll get back Viber(all versions so far) and FB VoIP,also ability to play FB videos but sadly we havent fixed Instagram and FB video upload (but we will try)!
It will work for both Omni and CM (I was meaning to compile new CM11 with few fixes but havent got around to it,probably will next week,I have too much school work overdue...)

Recovery combo is power+home+volume up + volume down (sometimes people forget so this is just a reminder)
Ok Im compiling new CM11 right now so when its finished ill test Omni and stagefright to see why its failing!
Thanks very much for report,will look into it!

If you have any more issues feel free to PM anytime or just mention me in post (kolko god banalan problem bio :D)

Thank man for the tip, i entered into recovery and reflashed omni and it booted up sucessfully.
I know that holding volume up plus home plus power button was for entering into recocery on many samaung android devices :), gour combo is strange but it works! Thanks again. I will download your cm when u upload it, in meantime i will stay with this. Make it as light as possible, for more free ram :). (Hvala buraz :))

Im wondering if there is a way to install a better android version than ice cream sandwich on the samsung galaxy ace ii gt-s7560m phone? This thread is over 500 pages long, and the steps at the beginning don't work on my phone. After flashing with stock rom...and entering recovery..my screen does not show that twrp screen or whatever it is..i get the samsung recovery screen. Can this phone still be used properly in 2019?

    I'm leaving for vacation tomorrow, so I won't be able to provide you guys with a build of OmniROM 5.0 before the end of the year. I would love to just release the alpha build out into the wild, but literally nothing is working (no audio, no WiFi, some force closes) so I would rather wait until I fix up a few of the issues. Fortunately, I do have a bit of a treat for you. I have a near-perfect build of OmniROM 4.4.4 for you. By near-perfect, I mean that everything is working except for Bluetooth, full camera resolution, and rendering images in native Chromium webview. Everything else should be working. I don't think that there are any other significant changes in this build compared to the previous one I uploaded back in October. If I have time to work on OmniROM 4.4.4 in the coming new year though, I will try to get things working nicely with ION. For now, you can download the new build of OmniROM 4.4.4 here. Happy holidays and have a great new year! Long live the Ace II X!

    How to root the GT-S7560 Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 X

    Okay so I rooted the GT-S7560 or the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 X using the Duos method mentioned in this thread. This phone is showing up everywhere in Canada right now through the usual channels and I wanted to clarify the process a bit for others who stumble upon this thread. I have attached a zip file containing the files I used and a word doc with instructions. It's the same as the Galaxy Duos except for entering recovery I could not figure out the button configuration to do it so I used ADB and sent the reboot recovery command. I later learned the vol button is a rocker and to press the center of the vol button the power and home all at the same time to enter recovery.

    I seek no credit, just trying to make it easier for the next.

    I have tested root on a couple of apps and everything seems to working great with no issues.

    BA2X 2.0 release 2!

    There comes a time, when people still on stock, are left out on the awesomeness of a slightly newer kernel version. Luckily, BA2X 2.0 has come to the rescue - it's been patched up to Linux kernel version 3.0.31, so it's consistent with CM. I've decided to make the default max frequency set as 1152 MHz, just because I don't feel like making custom frequencies for many different people. I think the most common wall that people hit with CPU frequencies is 1200 MHz, so I've lowered it just a smidge before that. If anyone faces any problems, let me know. I'll be uploading the updated sources to Github shortly, so you can indulge in them if you're that type of person. Besides a newer kernel version, there are a few other little changes to bring it more in line with the CM10.2 version of BA2X 2.0. Most notably, the GPU has been given the overclock treatment - there are 3 GPU frequencies for the system to throttle through - 100 MHz, 200 MHz, and 300 MHz. Battery life shouldn't be too bad, in fact it should/might be a bit better. You can download BA2X 2.0_r2 here. And if you don't like it, you can uninstall it using this flashable zip. The uninstall package installs the stock kernel and modules from the latest Canadian 'NA5 firmware so if you are having any issues even after installing the uninstall package, take the appropriate boot.img and /system/lib/modules folder from a ROM that works fine for you.

    I don't know why, but I seem to only get AnTuTu benchmark scores of around 4700. It might be because I lowered the minimum GPU clock speed to 100 MHz. Or it might just be that I have too many resource-hogging apps installed :p Just for safe-keeping, you can download the previous release of BA2X 2.0 here. Can someone post their AnTuTu scores on BA2X 2.0_r2?

    The next release of BA2X 2.0 will probably include something drastic new change, in a good way, because I cannot think of any other little modifications to do to the kernel source, so I'll have to try some bigger things. I don't want to be a downer if I can't deliver but personally, I wouldn't mind BLN, user-definable GPU clocking, f2fs support, and another kernel version upgrade would be nice too. I'll try my best when the time comes, and I'll see what I can whip up to make an Even Better Ace 2 X kernel... :D

    EDIT - The above download link is for BA2X 2.0_r2 with a maximum clock of 1152 MHz. Other frequencies can be downloaded below:
    1114 MHz
    1209 MHz
    1267 MHz
    1305 MHz
    19
    BA2X 2.0_r1

    The time has come... for the successor of SeannyM's BA2X kernels! BA2X 2.0 is based off of SeannyM's BA2X source, which is in turn based off of stock source, so BA2X 2.0 is like the grandchild of Grandpa Sammy. Don't know why, but I feel the need to keep that last sentence. Anyways, included in BA2X 2.0 is the following:
    • More CPU governors and schedulers
      - Added SavagedZen, InteractiveX, lulzactive governors
      - Added deadline scheduler (it was actually disabled in the kernel source, so I enabled it)
    • Disabled Loadable Kernel Module Authentication (lkmauth)
    • Frandom entropy generator module enabled on boot (in init.rc)
    • Vsync enabled (in init.rc)
    • USB Mass Storage enabled
    • Built with Sabermod 4.7.4 GCC toolchain = super smooth w. optimization
    You can download it here. I've only made a version clocked at 1.21 GHz for now because I think that's before the "wall" that most people hit. You may request an alternate frequency, but I may only make it for you when I have time (I won't go out of my way unless you're requesting a lower frequency because your device won't boot with this frequency). Happy holidays! BTW, Mod Pack II X v0.6.2 is out now too! I suppose I'm going to take up BA2X as a new project for this device alongside Mod Pack II X. I've got plenty more to do for both, and I think I might try building some ROMs in the new year...

    NOTE: THE DOWNLOAD LINK ABOVE IS FOR STOCK ROM. IF YOU WISH TO USE BA2X 2.0 FOR CYANOGENMOD (10.2/11 and maybe 10.1), DOWNLOAD THIS PACKAGE AND INSTALL IT VIA CWM.

    EDIT - I will put up a link for BA2X 2.0 for CM as soon as I get to making a working one, which requires that I find a suitable toolchain version. I'm a human being, so don't expect me to feel like pumping out stuff all the time.
