CyanogenMod 7.2 for Galaxy ace i (S5830i, S5839i, S5830M, s5830C)

This device is also known as cooperve

If you appreciate the hard work I've made for the device, give me a thanks donate me something, that will estimulate me more! Click on the button below, for more information:

CyanogenMod 7 is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 2.3.7 (GB), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

 * Your warranty is now void.
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
 * Submitting bug reports on nightly builds is the leading 
 * cause of male impotence.
CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

What's working:
  • Everything except Bugs down here!

What's partially working:
HW LIBS: We are using alcatel pre-built libs due to his devices uses nearly an AOSP ROM. AOSP and CM are compatible, so we try to use the Alcatel libs to implement on our last build, this was kind of a mess because lots of libs call others, so we need to pre-built all the encoder and decoder libs, but with a succefully result.
Well, due to this libs are prebuilt libs, and just work 100% on AOSP, some CM configs does not work, and this include this:

  • CRT Animation: This is a CM implelemtation, not on stock ROM from alcatel, so libs are not prepared to work with it.
  • Screen Rotation animation: I don't know why, libsurfaceflinger is not compatible with effect of rotate CM do, that is why I've added a configuration on the build.prop that reverts the animation, making the rotation witout animation, jsut rotates as it should. If I activate the animation, green screen will show up while animation is working.
  • CM Rendre effects: All the effects that CM added like the render effect don't work too because they were not implementend in AOSP, they were not implemented in our AOSP Alcatel libs, so it is not supported

Before asking, NO, this libs won't work on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich or plus.

Flash on camera: As far as I know, I've investiagted about it, and samsung used a weird interface to work with the flash on camera in stock rom. there is not a dedicated folder for that led, so i don't know yet how to implemetn it on CM7 camera app. THERE IS A FIX ON 3rd POST.

What's not working:

Native USB Tethering: USB tethering is started and with good configs (usb0 and rndis0) and seems no problem, logcat does not show nothing irrelevant, but we don't know why it is not working. I think it has something to do with brcm_switch.ko module, I'll take a look as soon as possible, but I don't know why does not work. Afaik brcm_switch.ko is not proper loaded, and I don't know the cause of it. YOU CAN FIX IT USING 3rd party apps.

Camera Flash Fix.

Note: This app is pretty nice, and works without any problems, only bug is flash while recording, but now pictures can be taken with flash working.

Download: http://www.mediafire.com/download/aymjhf5ed1y54o4/FLASH-FIX.zip

All right, to install this patch here are
  • Go to Recovery (CWM)
  • Mount system
  • Install zip from SD card
  • Install FIX and reboot

*these apps where used in the source of BroadcomCM but removed due to the working media scanner
these apps are additional and do provide a bit better system like better camer and some stuff shwoing better *

Credits to original authors of apps

CyanogenMod 7 for Galaxy ace i s5830i aka cooperve (REMEMBER THE 'I')

So, I currently don't have the device, but I'm waiting for it, anyway we probably now that broadcomm has release the drivers of HW and a framework patch, we already had a port of CM7 for our device, but this is compiled from scratch (source).

Modifying source, to be able to build it,

Having some issues with vendor... Dunno why...

Our github: this will be our github: https://github.com/broadcomCM

All credits go to whiteXP and his Galaxy y

Thank you very much for dedicating time building a proper cyanogen for cooperve :)
The status of this device is very sad at the moment but I can see it improving in a couple of months
