After a continuous development and improvement of android custom rom CyanogenMod for galaxy mini, fit, ace and many other devices; squadzone is now on with a new ROM for Samsung Galaxy Mini/Pop/Next smartphone. While he used to release his previous works as a form of an release candidates updates to unofficial CyanogenMod 7.2, this time he has come up with a name for his custom rom and we now call it CyanMobile. The Initial A version of this CyanogenMod 7.2 based Cyanmobile rom is very amazing, however, acknowledging the skills of the xda-recognized developer, squadzone, I wasn't surprised with all these awesome major changes to the rom. So, what's new with this latest version of CyanMobile 7.2.0 RC0 custom rom? Continue reading after the break to find out more.

So, with CyanMobile Initial A a lot of new tweaks and features can be spotted throughout the CyanMobile Settings menu section in device's settings app. The changes include an integrated font changer and text-font chooser with CyanMobile Settings>>Interface>>Fonts Settings; different layouts of notification windows; new soft buttons images (though they are much wider for mini's display to handle); Optimized ADW Launcher, Power Widgets, etc; Recent Applications on Status bar and the list continues for ever. So, to cut this short, I've got screenshots from CyanMobile 7.2 RC0 custom rom that will show you all new options available around this latest build.

This rom is not just a change in naming convention.... A lot has been changed and improved making this rom faster and smoother along with huge performance boost. I've listed the complete change log below from the developer's thread.

ChangeLog :
  • Added Options to move left, right, and center for clock, carrier label, and carrier logo.
  • Changeable colour for all elements (time, date, etc) in status-bar text and lock-screen.

  • Remove all locale and Only support English.
  • Update APN files.
  • Fix FM radio routing for some basebands.
  • Update libjpeg.. Now using libjpeg-turbo from CyanogenMod 9.
  • Fix CPU profile.
  • Automatic calibrate battery if battery capacity is 100% using engineer calculation method.
  • New Kernel 2.6.36.10.
  • Re-based source code of the ROM with CyanogenMod, AOSP (Android Open Source Project) and AOKP  (Android Open Kang Project).
  • Add option to choose font type (supports up to 5 different types).
  • Changeable font (or Font Optimizer inbuilt).
  • Honeycomb lock-screen fully functioning.
  • Better memory management and many more fixes and code optimizes.
So, these are all the changes that you can find in this newest rom and playing with the rom myself for few hours, I can tell you that this is one of the best custom rom ever for Galaxy Mini or Pop handset. Though --due to the heavy changes and introduction of huge features-- there are still few glitches and bugs in this ROM, still it can be used for daily uses and without having to bear much trouble.

So, that's that. Now, let's get on to flashing Cyanmobile Initial A custom rom on your galaxy pop or mini or next smartphone to try it by yourself.

          I am somewhat reluctant to flash this rom, because it says "Remove all locale and Only support English". Does this mean my phone doesn't speak Dutch (my native language) anymore? Not that i don't speak English, but nevertheless...

        21. Guys.. For issues with downloading apps from Google play/internet, try to check with the firewall app that is installed on the rom - Droidwall. May be this is blocking all the outgoing and incoming connections.
          I havent given a try but.. will be doing it shortly after flashing this final release.

        31. i believe my phone has become a brick  :((((

          ReplyDelete
        32. I've flashed this a couple of times make sure you follow the instructions. Easiest way with cwm. Wipe cache, data, dav cache, battery stats basically everything. Then reboot back into cwm. Update with downloaded zip. After successful install, wipe everything again , reboot and wait. It can take a while. And it should work. If not then don't use :-)

          ReplyDelete
        33. check your download..it must corrupted..

          I have tried this Rom, but is seems far from stable to me. First it seemed fine, but after a few restarts the phone went into a loop with te startup screen. Wiping cache and date solved te problem only temporarily. Also i couldn't really get the GAPPS working.
          There might be an update, a don't know. Yagya, aswell as Squadzone seem to be 'offline'. Don't know what's wrong...

          ReplyDelete
        39. The gapps are already included in the rom so you don't need to flash them manually. The rom is working just fine for me. Try installing it once again and this time follow the instructions above carefully.

          ReplyDelete
        40. On Squadzones's XDA page at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1344440 it is written that
          FIRMWARE S5570XXKPI OR XXKPL OR XXKPK !!!!!!
          So is it compatible with S5570DDKQ7, which is the stock Indian Gingerbread firmware?

        43. Connectivity are all working fine. Flash the firmware again with a data, cache and dalvik cache wipe and try again. Make sure you have latest GB version before flashing this rom.

          ReplyDelete
        44. You can flash a2sd or install s2e manually. It's not that eveyone want to use a2sd or s2e, othewise the developer might include one of them. But, some don't like to use either, while some like a2sd and others s2e. So, it is better to install manually.

          ReplyDelete
        45. No, it hasn't become a brick. Infact your download is corrupted and you should consider downloading the zip file again and flash it following the procedure above carefully.

          ReplyDelete
        46. Yes, it take some time at that screen.

          ReplyDelete
        47. Repeat the process once again even i faced the same issue but it was resolved after i deleted the factory reset, clear cache and clear dalvik cache

          ReplyDelete
        48. It may be possible that the app is not compatible with Galaxy Mini. From where did you download it. If it is not from Market/Google Play then I can't help on it.

          ReplyDelete
        49. It's not only a name change... Look at the changelog and my screenshots to see added features. For me there's no freeze, so I suggest you install it again with full data and cache wipe.

          ReplyDelete
        50. Reflash the rom again with full data and cache wipe.

          ReplyDelete
        51. Yes, it currently has support for only English language.. However, more shall be added later on once the rom becomes stable.

          ReplyDelete
        52. My Greetings to You! I am now quite confused if mobile data is working in Cyanmobile or not. It has been long since I flashed it and I had to flash two other roms after that.

        53. Mirjam en Harro SmitApril 23, 2012 at 11:07 PM

          Hey Yagya, good to see you're back! I did a clean install with a data en cache wipe. Still, my issue with the startup-loop stays. I have to reflash the rom, after witch the play-store included in the rom stays crashing. It just shuts down with no warning at all. Maybe it's an issue with my phone, but the CM 7.2 rc 5.7 doesn't have this problem!

          ReplyDelete
        54. I've been using Cyanmobile since it's release and have not had any issues since. I don't know why you are having issues with it. Wait for Cyanmobile reVo A and we'll see if the update fixes your problem or not.

          ReplyDelete
        55. Mirjam en Harro SmitApril 24, 2012 at 3:43 PM

          I still am a bit frustrated that i can't get it to work. I even  tried the latest REVO version, downloaded via the Lilg-updater. Did a clean install (data en cache wipe). All was working fine. Reinstalled all my apps (165!) and after 2 restarts op my phone: a bootloop!
          So i did it again. Costed me my whole evening! After 2 restarts: again a bootloop. Not after the first restart. What am i doing wrong?!! I tried a lot of roms but this is the first time i can't get a usable installation!!

          ReplyDelete
        56. Wich should i flash, cyanmobile or cyanmod 7.2 RC 5.7?
          wich do u prefer?

          ReplyDelete
        57. Flash the rom again... Wipe all dalvik cache, data and cache after flashing. I don't know why you are getting the error. I even cross checked by rebooting twice, but everything is fine for me.

          ReplyDelete
        58. excuse me boss i flashed the given ro sucessfully but while restarting the screen is just stopping at the android .....please give some solution for me

          ReplyDelete
        59. I prefer using CyanMobile however, it's all up to you. If you are looking for something stable, I would recommend Andro-id v3.3.1. 

          ReplyDelete
        60. It takes some time at this screen during very first reboot. Wait for about 5-15 minutes. If it doesn't boot even after that, then wipe both data and cache by going back to clockwork mod recovery and reboot your device again.

          ReplyDelete
        61. This rom is great... Or maybe you can try the updated version.

          ReplyDelete
        62. About 10-15 minutes at the max. Don't forget to wipe data and cache in recovery after flashing or else you might be stuck at ANDROID screen for hours.

          ReplyDelete
        63. hey i thought this was cyanmobile..... but i flashed it and there is this boot animation that says cynogen mod 9.... and its been like 20 mins and all i see is the boot animation again and again..... any advices?
          and btw, i learned a lot today through your site... thanx a lot!!

          ReplyDelete
        64. i flashed it again after trying to reboot it again and again... and finally on the third flash it worked... :)

          ReplyDelete
        65. Glad it worked for you. Sometimes, you need to flash twice or thrice to make the rom work (esp. if you are stuck in boot animation).

          ReplyDelete
        66. hi, yagya,...why android market google play, can't open retry page. but .. gmail, email or facebook,etc... can open.. and very fast connection, only the market.. cannot......i'm from philippenes....

          ReplyDelete
        67. I;m not sure about. Try to clear cache and data of market in Manage application settings and reboot your device and try again.

          ReplyDelete
        68. Hi Yagya, i used this rom for a week then shifted to cm7.2.0-RC5.7....

          and i find cm7 to be much more stable and smooth....

          can u tell me the key differences between these two roms so that i can choose the best one... cause i think in one week i might not hav been able to completely explore the cyanmobile......

          ReplyDelete
        69. Well, Cyanmonbile is an advance version of CM7 RC5.7. IT has many new experimental features added and it is further refined with latest reVo updates. Cyanmobile includes new lockscreens, a new navigation bar separate from Status Bar and many other internal tweaks and improvements such as support for Unicode characters within the rom, and other indic languages. There are many other things, which I forgot, but it surely is an update alright. But,it is also quite unstable as it has experimental (first hand) features. You can choose which ever you find best, though.
