    Questions and Bug

    Please do not contact me directly if you encounter bugs or you have questions about the port. When you're not yet allowed to post is this thread - post somewhere else, but don't send me a PM. Thanks for that.


    Don't flash this image unless you really know what you're doing! I'm not responsible for any damage what-so-ever done to your phone, as with any ROM, you accept this risk. You use this software at your own risk.

    Thanks to:

    OliverG96 for his CM10/CM10.1/CM10.2 port of golden.
    TeamCanjica for the u8500 common stuff.
    TheBoegl for hosting the images
    Hey guys,

    I recently compiled flxo CM11.0 rom with STE OMX support (from TeamCanjica).
    I've been testing it for a couple of weeks, for me everything seems ok (no reboots, camera working ...)

    I didn't test bluetooth hand's free, but it's certainly still broken.

    You can download this rom from my dropbox account :


    I'm also trying to compile Ubuntu Touch for S7710, I'll let you know when the rom will be flashable.
    I need some testers please send me a pm.

    edit: I have enough testers. The ROM is vanir aosp you can see it on youtube.

    It officially supports s3 mini (golden) , codinalte (galaxy exhibit) , X cover 2 (skomer)

    Even more it has support for Samsung STE/Novathor chipsets. The golden and skomer are set up to inherit from my device since we maintain our trees the s3 mini and x cover won't need updating they will always stay up to date.

    skomer device https://github.com/Team-Exhibit/android_device_samsung_skomer

    Hey, has this project moved somewhere and I missed it or is it just a low peak atm? I am asking as it seemed to have a lot of activity last month but nothing this. I would love to see CM10 fully working on the Xcover 2 as the phone has no custom roms what so ever that I can find.

    I've been off for three weeks and hope I can continue working on the port in the next days. Next item is the camera and some annoying stuff like the need to enable/disable the airplane mode once to get mobile data to work..


    The last release fixes the random reboots that occurred with Beta 10. I used it for a week or so and did not have such issues any more.
    Don't expect any updates for the near future - I'm short on spare time. Furthermore I'd really appreciate if someone is willing to take of this port. Especially the CM-11.0 stuff need some investigation. Patches for OMX are available in the meantime and they are ready to get integrated - not a hard job, but needs some coding skills...

    have a nice day,
