    So i found a couple of ROM's for the Galaxy Mini.

    [DEV] [Samsung GT-S5570] [ROM & Kernel Develompent] [Andro-ID] - xda-developers

    [DEV] [Samsung GT-S5570] [ROM & Kernel] Unofficial Cyanogenmod 7 - xda-developers .

    Here are some tips before you start flashing :

    1. Before flashing any of these ROM you MUST HAVE Android 2.3.* Gingerbread.

    2. I will post a how to flash the Andro - ID and CyanogenMOD.

    3. Don't be affraid of flashing custom ROM trough recovery. Cause well the recovery has a failsafe that is activated when something goes wrong so that you won't brick your device.

    So the first thing. How to flash successfully to Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread (XXKPK) (Lastest version of android. Europe region) :

    1. Download the firmware from here : http://hotfile.com/dl/125835351/81792ef/S5570XXKPK_S5570XXKPK_S5570SERKPK.rar.html . Password is : samfirmware.com

    2. Dowload the .OPS file and ODIN. OPS :http://hotfile.com/dl/112245631/62ba9aa/TASS_v1.0.ops.html . ODIN : http://www.multiupload.com/MUBOZPEOS3 .

    3. Once you have everything download unpack the firmware . In there you should find a file that ends .tar .

    4. Open up ODIN . Then select "One package" option in the left side of the program's window. Now browse with the "One Package" button in the right corner of the ODIN's window to you .tar file .

    5. Now power of your phone. Plug it in to your PC using USB Cable. And go into download mode by holding Wolume Down + Home key + Power key until you see a sign that says downloading.

    6. Now ODIN should detect your phone A little box should turn yellow and say something like this : COM (28) . The number will be different but the COM word won't change.

    7. Now press start. And wait until the big box above the yellow box turns blue and says "PASS" then you can unplug your phone :)

    8. The language for me was russian by default so go to your menu select the blue gear icon and go to a section that has a keyboard key icon. And then select the first option in the menu and select your language.

    That's it you have gingerbread on your phone.

    NOTE ! If you have KIES installed on your computer then you don't need drivers. But if you don't have KIES installed download these drivers : http://hotfile.com/dl/109276666/f22355e/SAMSUNG_USB.rar.html . Unpack and install on your PC.

    P. S - Backup your apps. Because when i flashed to gingerbread they were wiped.

    P. S .S - This tutorial can be used to flash back to stock ROM froma custom ROM

    Hope this was clear enough.

    Frequently Asked Questions :

    1. Clockworkmod(a.k.a CWM) is a custom recovery for android. It's like a normal recovery but with a lot of modifications(like CWM allows you to backup and restore your ROM.Or install custom ROMs :)

    2.ROM . There are two kinds of ROMs :
    1. Stock ROM (An original system provided by the manufactor of the device. In our cases Samsung)
    2. Custom ROM (It's always based on a stock ROM. Like CyanogenMOD is based on Gingerbread. But this ROM has a LOT of stuff added, modified and perfected. In cyanogen you can modify almost everything.

    3. CyanogenMOD (a.k.a CM7. The 7 is the number of the current cyanogenMOD) and Andro - ID are just the names of the only custom ROMs available for the mini / pop . There are a lot of other ROMs but those ROMs don't support our device.

    4. And the last one about OverClocking (a.k.a OC). The processors are set to a limited frequency witch they run normally without any problems like overheating (in our case 600mhz). Once you flash a custom kernel witch supports OC you remove that limit. the max setting of our processor is about 870mhz if you push it to like 1ghz you will overload the processor and your system will start to reboot again and again and again :) . I think you can even break the device . So use this carefully. I think there is no OC kernel out yet for our device but there will be :) .

    ^ I want n i'm going to flash mine(in some time), i'm a first time user so a lil hesitant..but flashing thru odin seems to be simple n easy. cyanogen mod7 (cm7) offers various features n enhancements that android doesnt n has better looks n can be customised, if u have a modified kernel then u can overclock it(now, who doesnt want this!!)
    There are TONS of speed, CPU, power, and audio tweaks. Optimizations that Google decided to not use.
    More control over your screen settings...Things like 360* rotation, ability to change UI colors like the statusbar, battery meter in the statusbar, changing the render effect.

    Google for more :) ;)

    and @Netas.... which is better, by the looks n overall stuff Andro id or cm7?

    Netas3k Well-Known Member

    Manishgade my intention was to try new stuff on my mini / pop.

    roofrider i recommend for the first time flash andro - id. If you get bored with it (like i did) you should install cm7 but in cm there are couple of bugs so not so cool an we need a special kernel to overclock. REMEMBER your base system must be Android 2.3.* even when flashing the CWM from there your base MUST be 2.3.*

    Hope this helps :)

    P. S - If any of you have any questions post them here and i will answer them.

    Roofrider,

    The CWM in that site is a remake of the original CWM. And we still don't use the rom manager. That CWM is flashed trough odin. And it didn't brick my phone :) and didn't backup my stock rom when i flashed to andro - id and cm7. I have downloaded a froyo firmware from samfirmware.com if i want to go back. But that won't happen anytime soon ;)

    Griffin ,

    1. You actually didn't need to flash CWM just to root your device. It's recommended for that tutorial to use the stock recovery.

    2. So try this :
    Before you install that file trough CWM go to mounts and storage section in the main menu. Mount the /system and then try to install that package.

    If this won't help. Write here i will give you another method ;)

    Thankssss a ton buddy... in a shortest yet illustrative way you have answered my queries.. You are absolutely right in defining custom ROM and all other stuff... so no need to doubt your knowledge.. As I have been reading various blogs on this but never understand the things you explained to me in a good manner... Ok .. so who is developer and how he decided to develop certain ROM for certain devices and our device is limited to certain ROM why...? who is the no. 1 custom ROM developer in our case for galaxy mini.. and how to be remain updated abt. the latest development of our device in respect of custom ROM and CM7 and Andro-ID etc.... Thanks in advance....

    Manishgade,

    First thank you :) And second the developers of other custom ROMs just don't make other ROMs support our device (hardware and stuff...). Like Cyanogen doesn't support our radio and maybe never will. But since CyanogenMOD is open-source other developers can port them to mini / pop like tj_style did in xda-developers. tj_style from xda-developers did a HUGE job porting CWM and CM to mini, but sadly the next release of his CM and CWM will be the last... The mini that he has doesn't belong to him but to his wife and she wants to sell the device. And there is nothing we can do. But couple of guys at MadTeams forum are thinking of further development. Maybe i will be the tester there. And how to know the newest ROMs for mini. If i will find new ROMs or existing ones update i will post here where to find them. So stay tunned :)

    P. S - If you know or find something fell free to post it here. I would be glad to check it out :)

    ok netas...i'm considering flashing to andro id 3.2...after flashing to it..
    i will still have the market n access to it n all the stuff that's there in my 2.3.4 now?
    or will everything be wiped out?
    in that case i had appsinstaller installed which had an option to backup the apps,it saved the .apk files to my sd card. shud i use anyother better backup app?
    no significant bugs rite?
  20. roofrider

    roofrider Well-Known Member

    also to get to andro id...i just need to follow the instructions on page 1 of andro id in xda?
    cuz there are various mentions telling to flash the cwm by tj/enhanced recovery...it's all the same as the file: tass-recovery-cwm on 1st page?
    n while flashing the tass-recovery-cwm file thru odin, phone needs to be in download mode rite?(i know it's too noobie)
    then i can just install andro id v2.3 frm sd card rite?

    I have ma device (2.3.4) already rooted and has app to move files from phone to sd card, so is there any other benefit for me ,so that i should flash to andro- id rom???

    Is there a performance factor????
  23. roofrider

    roofrider Well-Known Member

    Depends on wat u want...the performance of gb is gud , andro-id is also similar. Custom roms(there cud be a few bugs) have a different look n feel. If ur happy with gb then no reason for u to go to andro-id. but if u want there is no trouble in flashing to andro-id n back to gb if u dont want it.
