MiniS3 v2 Rom For Samsung Galaxy Mini or Pop S5570

MiniSIII is an outcome of the galaxys3roms project by safariking, which aims to provide Galaxy S3 user experience on ARMv6 devices including Samsung Galaxy Mini, Galaxy Ace, Galaxy Gio, Galaxy Fit and other similar devices. Thanks to the developer, we are getting the chance to experience S3 rom on our low end handsets. For more details about this project, you can visit the project's website at In this post we are concerned with MiniS3 rom for galaxy mini or pop gt-s55570 handset. This rom, in short, is Cyanogenmod 9 rom with TouchWiz 5 launcher and few other user interface elements from galaxy s3 firmware to emulate same user experience within galaxy mini device. Let's look into few details of this rom.

As I mentioned above, this is a touchwiz user interface in cyanognemod 9 roms. So, this rom is similar to that except for the user interface elements. The beautiful looking touchwiz launcher makes this rom awesome and to your surprise this rom is smooth and responses fast. The transition animations in the homescreen are what I like the most in this rom. Overall this rom looks like stock Ice Cream Sandwich rom on galaxy s3 and provides a better taste of the latest Android 4.0.4 Operating System.

While the rom looks beautiful and works quite fine, it still has some bugs and glitches. It inherits the camera and radio bugs for Cyanongemod 9 rom. Also, sometimes it lags while multitasking, but it's quite rare. However, minis3 rom should fulfill most of your daily needs but, if you are a heavy user playing games and watching too much movie then, this rom might not be the better choice for you.
