Default Custom ROMs for Galaxy Pop/Mini(S5570)

I want to install custom ROMs for my galaxy pop. i read a tutorial on a forum which was using the ROM manager app. In the starting of the procedure, i had to select something and the app was supposed to get to know my phone, but it didn't.
I need a full tutorial tested on galaxy mini. can anyone lead me to one or make a small one for me?

the tutorial is here...
[Complete Guide] How To Flash A Custom ROM To Your Android Phone With ROM Manager + Full Backup & Restore

any help will be appreciated!

[Complete Guide] How To Flash A Custom ROM To Your Android Phone With ROM Manager + Full Backup & Restore

Though this is not a tutorial I will list each major step you will need to follow to flash a custom rom.
1. Your phone must have gingerbread. If you are on froyo try to upgrade it with the help of this detailed guide Handy Informations: Upgrade Samsung Galaxy Pop/Mini GTS5570 to Gingerbread 2.3.4

2. After upgrading install clockwork recovery mod using Odin one package option. Download from here tass-recovery-cwm.tar.

3. Find yourself a custom rom (as far as I know Andro-id is the only offical custom rom for samsung galaxy pop/mini gts5570, but users have also installed unofficial cyanongen mod 7 rom wich they claim is working well.) Get yourself one. Download Andro-id v3.2 signed from this link Andro-id_signed_v3.2.zip

4. copy the zip file to your sdcard.

5. reboot your device in recovery (Power + Home).

6. Select 'Apply Update from Sdcard' option and choose the zip file you copied earlier.

7. wait for it to finish. It is recommended to wipe your data and cache.

8. Reboot your phone. you should now have a custom rom running.

Hope it is clear for you. If you have problem/issues feel free to ask.
Wish you all the best!!!!

I flashed Andro-id yesterday. I like this rom especially the launcher. I think FM Radio doesn't work with this. But its ok.

I'm planning to flash CM7 also. But, after one/two days.

Andro-id is not available in ROm Manager. And by the way I've heard a lot of complaints that rom manager is bricking their phones from many users. So, the best and recommended method is to do it manually. Just follow the procedures above and everything will be fine...

I've heard cyanogenmod 7 nightly build is available is ROm Manager. If you want you can flash that. But, you have to install CWM recovery manually as Rom Manager doesn't list our deive in flash CWM recovery option and selecting other devices may lead to a bricked phone.

Are you sure you are using the correct files for CWM?
The one given here [DEV] [Samsung GT-S5570] [ROM & Kernel] Unofficial Cyanogenmod 7 - xda-developers work for me good.
Try out reflashing it.
