CyanMobile, an innovation of the developer squadzone,  is an awesome rom that combines the features of both AOSP and AOKP to provide it's users with rich features, tweaks and handy options. The latest version of this rom released yesterday by the developer is named CyanmobileX (tweaked from Cyanmobile eXperience) and is available for three different handsets viz. Samsung Galaxy Mini, Galaxy Fit and ZTE Blade Gen 2. Along with the release the developer also announced that other interested developer can port it to their handset and he'll be uploading the sources to his github soon. This custom rom, with it's improved features and stability, really simplifies the tasks that one can do with his/her handset. Let's look into the depths of this latest stable release of cyanmobile series.

The developer during the release of the latest version of his custom rom, CyanmobileX, informed that it is finally stable enough for daily activities. And, this release is the last version of cyanmobile rom for Samsung galaxy mini or pop s5570 smartphone.

CyanmobileX packs into itself some of the awesome new features and improvements. The latest version of 2012/07/21 comes with a clean user interface, revamped layout and improved performance and stability. While the battery life is normal and not that impressive, the features packed are awesome. Now, you can set a timer to shutdown your handset from the System settings within Cyanogenmod Settings. Similarly, Sound settings introduces more new call features and now you can dial a contact simply by moving your phone close to your ear. 

Not only that, now you can simply read the count for missed calls and messages right in your lockscreen. Giving your rom a beautiful look, is the option to set a different custom wallpaper for your lockscreen. Similarly, the SimExporter app integrated with the contacts allows you to simply copy contacts to and from sim card. All these customizations and many more included within this awesome custom rom are now accessible in your precious galaxy mini or pop s5570 smart phone from Cyanmobile Settings menu.


Apart from the features mentioned above, the features introduced in previous release of cyanmobile reVo and cyanmobile eXperience such as inbuilt app2sd script, option to use Menu and Back key to receive and end calls, beautiful and handy navigation bar with soft buttons for easier navigation and customizability of user interface elements, etc all are also refinements and included within the latest version. While all these add to the plus point of cyanmobileX rom, few negative points of this rom can also be found.

The latest version doesn't support Unicode characters so you'll again face difficulty in rendering website that are in your native languages. This is to say, Indic fonts and Devanagari script is not support anymore. Also, now there are not much choice while settings CPU frequencies like before.  While rest all seem to work fine, there's chance you'll face some lags while using your handset aggressively. In such situation you are suggested to overclock your handset by increasing Max CPU Frequency at CyanMobile Settings >> Performance >> CPU Settings to some suitable value.


Well, that's all about the latest CyanmobileX custom rom for galaxy mini or pop s5570 smartphone. For more details I suggest you to flash this rom on your handset and then explore different features within the rom itself.
