CyanogenMod 9 Beta 7 For Galaxy Mini & Pop GT-S5570.

Maclaw couldn't have chosen a better day than the start of the week day to release another beta version of the long anticipated CyanogenMod 9 custom rom for Samsung Galaxy Mini/Pop GT-S5570 smartphone. Yes, today Maclaw announced the release of cyanogenmod 9 Rom. But, it's not Beta 6, instead galaxy mini/pop users are getting CM9 Beta 7 with some major improvements and changes to rom. However, still after all the efforts from the developers at GalaxyICS team, Camera is still not working in this rom. But, that doesn't mean you need to be disappointed and skip through the rest of the article since, CM9 Beta 7 consists of huge improvements making it a --must flash-- major update for those anticipating the release of stable Ice Cream Sandwich rom. So, continue reading after the break to know further details about this update.

Cyanogenmod 9 Beta 7 has improved a lot since last beta 4 release. With this rom the hardware acceleration is working just fine and there are no more flickers. The rom runs smoothly and at a considerable speed even without having to overclock it. The changes are not much in the user interface and it looks pretty much same as previous CM9 release, however there have been huge change in kernel which has improved overall performance of the rom. Below, I've got the change log for CM9 Beta 7 from the developers thread.

CyanogenMod 9 Beta 7 For Galaxy Mini or Pop GT-S5570
CyanogenMod 9 Beta 7 For Galaxy Mini GT-S5570
ChangeLog : Beta7
  • Android Updated to v4.0.4.
  • Fast smooth system & smooth windows animations.
  • New phone lock animation
  • Hardware acceleration on most video formats (not all).
  • Smooth videos on YouTube (LQ only right now).
  • Fully working deep sleep (all the time when BT is disabled)
  • GSM fully works (signal indicator/mobile data/phone calls/messages etc.)
  • Updated Google Apps.
  • CRT screen-off animation.
  • New Adreno200 libraries for Ice Cream Sandwich.
  • Live Wallpapers working - Now it won't slowdown your system, like on Gingerbread!.
  • Gallery and calculator fully working all the time
  • Gmail working without any problem
  • Browser working really good (smooth and fast)
  • All apps with graphic problems, like Poweramp, now working without any Updated AOSP/CM9 sources.
  • New gralloc and hwcomposer.
  • Updated Macław's audio libraries.
  • FM seems to be working.
    Note : To get FM radio working, you must to install Spirit FM app from Play Store and then go to:
    Settings=>Region frequency=>Europe
    Settings=>Audio=>Method=>msm7x30 Si5500
This is just a change log. You can never get the real picture of the rom just by viewing it. So, let's flash Cyanogen Mod 9 Beta 7 rom on your galaxy pop/mini/next and see what Ice Cream Sandwich is all about.

So, enjoy this beta 7 for now until further updates. If you have any problems while flashing or any other doubts then feel free to ask me at the comments below.

    Thank you for all your work Yagya.

  7. Well, it's all your choice. One recent good news is that one of the developer has successfully run Camera app without error, however, it still is not fully functional. But, it will be improved in the course of development.

  16. I'm using CM9 beta 7. My prob is , the voice at the receiver end is not clear (as they complain it to me). Is this a bug in this ROM, I've tried for any settings in the system, but found nothing. Goggling also didn't do any favor. Also it hangs up many times and reboots itself. Is there anyone found/having the similar problem. Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    ReplyDelete
  17. The voice might be a bug. I don't use call feature that much so I'm unaware about it. About the reboots, I've not faced any while using the device for a week or more. Did you wipe data and cache after flashing the rom? If not do so now. Otherwise, tell me when does it reboots? Meaning, what are you doing when it reboots like installing a game or an app, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  18.  Thanks for the reply. Regarding reboots, it happened once when i've opened Asphault game, the next time when i'm working with Mobo launcher, once while i'm about to change the unlock pattern, and two-three times while while working some other things. Otherwise it is a great experience to work with CM9.

  19. hey i updated my galaxy pop in cy 9 beta 7....
    but when i go to access points to chose them...suddnly it appers unfortunatly . the process.comandroid.phone has stopped.
    now why dis coming? in the features clearly said that data conection works..now its not workin... :(
    n camera also :'(

    ReplyDelete
  20. Well, CM9 being beta has issues with compatibility of apps, so it is normal for some apps to force close or your system to reboot while running some apps. Remember not all apps work fine with Android 4.0. I suggest you avoid doing those things for now and wait for next CM9 Beta 9. It will be more stable than current version.

    ReplyDelete
  21.  Well then i'll wait for beta 9. So when can we expect it to be released.

    ReplyDelete
  22. That's a bug with beta 7. Let's hope for it to be fixed in Beta 9 and wait patiently until it's release.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Camera, galary and FM not working. I hope new release will solve this, galaxy ICS settings also not working.

    camera.apk using in dis rom is taken from ics or selfcreated?

    ReplyDelete
  27.  my data connection is also not working! what to do?

    ReplyDelete
  28. No, you can't make camera work by yourself by any means. Also, data connection has also some bugs at the moment. Just wait until next release is there. And, don't post spam comments (randomly).

  29. before cm 9 i had emanon v6 rom and when i flashed cm9 without wiping data the camera was working. Why dont they fix camera with the help of this rom or some other rom.Sorry but i did not know how i could contact to the owner of this rom so i wrote over here. If you have time just tell this to him. Thnx!!!!!!! ;')

  30. Well, are you sure about what you just said? Maybe you had an illusion. Did you double checked it? If possible post some screenshots showing the running camera app.

  38. Your download seems to be corrupted... Try downloading the zip again and flash it by going to recovery again. The zip size is 126 MB.

    For now you can recovery your device in two ways :
    Either download this or any other rom and flash it in recovery.
    Or, flash a stock firmware using Odin as described in the link given in Step 1 above.

    Do a data and cache wipe in recovery after flashing if you are stuck in boot animation or logo for a long time (above 5-10 minutes). And, don't panic at all. Stay calm at any situation and don't do worse.

  39. the link in Step 1 is for updating it to 2.3.4... i want it to update to 4.0.4... i downloaded the file again and did the flashed it again... the same response... i even tried beta 4... plz give me d necessary steps and links to update my android via Odin... thnk u for responding... 4.0.4 is wat i need... all i get after the rebooting process is a white screen...

    ReplyDelete
  40. Official Android 4.0.4 is not available for Galaxy mini yet. However, unofficial CM9 based on ICS Android 4.0.4 is available and above one is the latest of this rom.

    You should wait for few minutes in the white screen and it will boot up fine normally. Flash the rom again and wait till 5-10 minutes.

  43. You can flash a custom rom via Odin. First install Clockwork mod recovery v4.0.0.5 *only this version, then install cm9 as instructed below. Make sure you do data and cache wipe in recovery and then, reboot. It should boot fine. Try flashing twice if it doesn't work right away.

  46. There's no necessary to write in all capital letters at all. Anyway, those games are not to be played on Galaxu Mini so, if you are trying them then lag is inevitable. I say, be happy for those game ran on your mini.
