Upgrading Samsung Galaxy Pop/Mini GT-S5570 To Latest Cyanogen Mod 7.2.0 RC5.2 .

Cyanogen Mod 7.2.0 RC5.2 is another fast update to one of our favorite Cyanogen Mod build by squadzone. Since, the previous version CM7 RC5 had some unexpected bugs and errors the developer worked hard and fixed all/most of them so that we can get this awesome stable rom. This rom is an quick update (in cut of some features) and let's hope it will stand up to meet the awaited needs of many users. So, without any delay continue reading to find out more about this update as well as for step by step instructions on flashing this rom on your galaxy pop/mini gt-s5570 smart phone.

So, being a quick update you might think it has got not much of changes but, you will be amazed to see that this rom has got many new changes and I have listed some of them below. Also, here are some of the screenshots of this RC5.2 rom, that you can compare with your rom or with the screenshots of other roms found at this site. Also, here is a video, I did, on cyanogen mod rc5.2 rom --make sure you watch it before you flash your rom.
Cyanogen Mod 7.2.0 RC5.2
  • Optimized All Apks
  • Improve some Library
  • Improve LDPI Layout
  • Using 864Mhz OC kernel With Cyanogen Mod 9 Features
  • Update to Latest Source from Cyanogen Mod Source
  • Improve Tweak Kernel Again
  • Calculate AHB again
  • Patch Camera ( This will fix the camera orientation )
  • Fix Call Waiting
  • Improve Scroll and Volume Control
  • Can use power button as camera button.
  • Can reboot holding volume up and power
  • Rebuild wifi module
  • Update latest video and audio codec
After flashing and seeing through, I was not quite excited after flashing the rom -- since some of the features like undervolting and few others are removed from this build. It seems like squadzone build this rom from Cyanogen Mod sources and released it without including some of the features found in previous version -- exception to this is Tablet Tweaks feature, which is instead improved with some big icons. But, that too created another problem/bug, now if you have many icons on your status bar, it overflows to the right and hides some of your icons (You can take a look at it at this video of cyanogen mod rc5.2 rom). But, in overall it is a good rom and seems very stable maybe, being directly compiled from cyanogen mod source. So, let's flash this rom on your galaxy pop/mini gt-s5570 and see for yourself how this rom actually is. Download Cyanogen Mod 7.2.0 RC5.2 rom from Roms and Utilities page and then follow the steps after wards to flash this rom on your device.

Note : Those who have Gingerbread OS and any Custom Recovery installed on their device can skip Step 1 and Step 2.



4. Copy the downloaded file to the (root directory of) your sd-card.

5. Reboot your device to Custom Recovery (Press Home + Power Button).

6. [Optional but, Recommended] Do a Nandroid Backup of your current rom.

7. Choose Install Zip From Sd Card>>Choose Zip From SD Card option and then select the update-cm-7.2.0-RC5.2-GalaxyMini-KANG-signed.zip file you downloaded from above.

Note : If you are using RZ Recovery, choose Install Menu>>Select update-cm-7.2.0-RC5.2-GalaxyMini-KANG-signed.zip file you downloaded>>Select Wipe Data and Wipe Cache>>Choose Install update-cm-7.2.0-RC5.2-GalaxyMini-KANG-signed.zip and wait till the rom is flashed.

8. Wait till the rom is flashed/installed on your device. Once done, Wipe Data and Wipe cache from recovery menu.

9. Reboot your device from your recovery main menu.

Updates
And, you are done with upgrading your cyanogen mod to latest rc5.2 version. Now, take some time and explorer through this new Cyanogen Mod Rom. In this rom you can overclock up to 864 MHz within from the rom (no need to flash any overclocking kernels). Also, market and Google apps are install already, however, if you feel any difficulty in configuring them then you might need to flash the google apps in CWM recovery.So, you are done just after flashing this rom and configuring it. That's all in this rom. If you tried it don't forgot to leave a short review in the comments below.

  4. Let's say that the real improvement here with 7.2 is the "TUNER" (radio fm) .. that really makes original Samsung ROM falls behiiind !

    ReplyDelete
  5. I noticed a small bug in the "lockscreen main menu" in "Cyanogen Settings" .. it always crashes over there .. And by the way, nice blog and nice work you always did brother ! keep on.

  6. No, as you can see in the video I posted there is no any crash or force close. And, thanks for the compliment. Learn and enjoy while you are here.

  7. No, you didn't brick your phone. It's normal to take some time at ANDROID screen during the first boot after falshing. If you are stuck here for a long time above 10 minutes then go back to recovery and wipe data and wipe cache and reboot your device.

  10. Make sure you have clock work mod recovery v4.0.0.5 and then flash again.

  16. i installed it successfuly but it crashes a lot and restarts my pop a lot!!!!!! what to do in this situation?

    ReplyDelete
  17. one more question to yagya does overclocking CPU crashes mobile a lot if not? then ok if it crashes then what is the optimum clocking speed i should keep so that it wont crashes every single time and one more thing as u know pop doesnt run flash based websites can after this mod rom is there anyway to run flash based websites?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yes, if your device is unable to operate at such high frequency then it is likely to crash or force close. If you experience such activites after overclocking make sure you lower the CPU Frequency.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Make sure you do a data and cache wipe in recovery. Also, wipe dalvik cache in CWM advance menu and reboot. If you are using OC kernels then decrease the Max Frequency.

    ReplyDelete
  20. In this situation, go back to CWM recovery, wipe data and cahe and flash only the rom and then wipe cache and reboot. You can flash other zips (updates or gapps or a2sd) after the phone boots normally at least once.

    ReplyDelete
  21. oh yes, I forgot to mention that the bug is in "RC5" not this one .. Sorry i didn't notice the difference !

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have cm 7.1.0. Do i still wipe data.

    ReplyDelete
  23. sory yagya but ......after flash my phone some time automatic off and sometime reboot itself...i ll try wipe data/catch but its no luck....have you had any other solution...........anyway good work.....thanks

    ReplyDelete
  24. I think you are using Overclocking features. If so then make sure you lower down the Max Frequency to near it around 604 MHz --I recommend not to overclock above 753 MHz -- and then try to see the improvements.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yes, it is better to wipe data and cache --both.

    ReplyDelete
  26. thanks yagya now i m traying RC5.3...... but sorry ones more Q.whenever i am not using phone about 15 to 20 min.then my phone gos off.....i think its in my settings.....but i dont know which one?my phone cpu allready on748....i done allready clockwork recovery.....not overlock.......anyway thanks 4 last A...and if u find solution then and you have time 4 me then give me A.....b.cos you workik tooo much....thanks

    This is Balaji. Thank U for ur post, I flashed the RC5.2 and it working good also. But I tried to connect to pc for file transferring the phone will restarting automatically, if I unmount my sd card, same is happening. Does u have any suggestion on this issue? I used RC5.0 also, I faced same issue. First 2 or 3 its working well after that it not working. Please tell me any solutions for that.

    ReplyDelete
  29. It's working fine for me. Try to upgrade to latest Cyanogen Mod Rom and see if that helps. Don't forget to wipe data and cache after flashing the rom.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thank you yagya, once I turn off the internet then it connected well.

  31. hiiii

     plz also put indian version also as i have tryed this version which is of hongkong  and after flashing i lost my phone iemi number.
     the version is coolllllllll

    ReplyDelete
  32. where can i get the galaxy pop compatable 2.3.7 indian version 

    ReplyDelete
  33. I can't get what you mean. This rom is compatible with all Samsung Galaxy Pop/Mini smartphones.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I think there is some confusion, you don't lose IMEI number after flashing roms. And, what do you mean by this version which is hongkong. I guess, you commented in wrong post. And, search for Indian version 2.3.6 here it's available.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hi Yaya,

    Is it good to go ahead with Cynogen 7 or 9 which is more stable ?

    Thanks
    Baiju

    ReplyDelete
  36. Cyanogen Mod 9 is still in it's beta version so, it is undoubtedly not very stable. For now go with Cyanogen mod 7; most later version of the rom are stable.

  37. Hello ,

  38. Find gapps for gb.zip file (Google Apps) here and flash them in CWM recovery to get all Google Apps back.

    ReplyDelete
  39. i already do all. but i had black screen and ANDROID what slould i do

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yes, you will need to go back to recovery and wipe data, cache and dalivk cache. If that doesn't help then flash CWM v4.0.0.5 and flash the rom again. That shall solve your problem.

    ReplyDelete
  41. hey my phone reboots again and again when i put sim card but it  works without sim... i hav installed cyanogen 7.2 

    ReplyDelete
  42. Is your galaxy mini carrier locked? If so, you will need to unlock it before you can use the sim card without problem. Also, make sure there's no any problem with the sim card. Also, try out latest CyanogenMod RC5.7 and see if the problem still persists.

    ReplyDelete
  44. No, you probably can't flash it on CDMA Galaxy Pop. BTW, do you have clockwork mod recovery for it?

    ReplyDelete
  45. hi i just upgrade cm 7.2,it is working well,but time is not coming on top,how can enable this?

  46. This is quite an old version you are using. Anyway, to get time go to CyanMObile Settings>>INteface>>STatus bar tweaks and select a visible color for the time/clock.
