Hi all, any idea how to improve my galaxy ace 2 performance?
Because the RAM is small.
And my kernel doesn't support swap.. so what to do?
I tried supercharger but can't run the script.
Thx for your attention

you need to be rooted to run supercharger, but even then it won't change your Ace2x into an S2...
i've run it a couple time and didnt find any performance improvement.

if you want more space, root, format your sd card with a second partition (ext4) and use Link2SD's link fonction
if you want more performance, root and flash an overclocked kernel !

You may want to check your model number as no 2.3 firmware exists for the s7560m. Maybe you have the first ace (s5830, etc.)?

Its ICS for sure bro, no need to worry. As soon as you get it, the OS Version is 4.0.4 because that is the only version available for the phone

you might want to know that the specifications are WAY off on the website, this phone does NOT have 4GB of memory, it has 1.8GB memory and 645MB of RAM, a SINGLE-CORE 1GHZ and the camera cannot take 16:9 videos, only square 640x480...

i'm still wondering why they lie that much about the phone, even on samsung's website the specs are not correct and they seems more like the specs of a "vanilla" Ace2..

4gb internal is correct; of the system files, only 1.8gb is "usable"

So, I may have been too quick to remove the samsung messaging app. I can now send sms and mms, but only receive mms. If I delete all the threads I will receive notification of sms messages but they are all blank. I guess the stock messaging app is still needed in some way? I just wanted to get rid of it as I never use it. So, anyone know of any nifty fixes for this one? Or does someone have a nicely packaged backup of the stock messaging app they could upload so I don't have to reflash the whole rom?

Edit: Now fixed! Had to download an SMS app that lets you set the delivery center # as it got wiped. The app I replaced stock with didn't have this option. Anyone know how this number is saved in the system so it can be changed regardless of messaging app being used?

How can you confirm this?
please help

Few of here have unlocked this phone using some method. I had mine unlocked in a mall here in Calgary. As far as I know, so far there is no free method to unlock this phone , and it will cost you 20 quid or more for the unlock. But anyway, the unlock is feasible.

@YoshiShaPow, where is that CM9 zip? Wasnt it supposed to be posted so we could fix the compression problem? If we get CM9, we can build paranoidandroid and miui too.

    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.
