Samsung Galaxy Ace First Custom Rom VillainROM 1.0 (2.3.3/lightweight)

VillainROM 1.0 for the Samsung Galaxy Ace

As I have mentioned previously, this isn’t the magical custom ROM you have all been waiting for, YET. It’s a base that I have created in order for me to work on over the next few days/weeks/months. As I have said a few times now, don’t expect it to be HUGELY different to stock KPE at this stage.

- Based on Samsung’s XXPE Gingerbread build
- Pre-rooted with Superuser installed
- De-odexed (improving free space on /system)
- All APKs PNG optimized and zip-aligned
- A few minor tweaks which should improve free memory – please let me know
- Full battery alert removed (no more 3am wake ups!)
- Added GenieWidget (News and Weather)
- Added Gallery3D
- Added Stock Gingerbread Launcher and REMOVED TouchWizLauncher.apk
- Menu key will now unlock the phone on the lock screen
- SOME bloatware removed
- Huge APN list
- Annoying boot sound removed
- Light weight – stripped down the build a bit without losing functionality

See.. as I said, it’s lightweight and just a base at this stage. My work will continue over the next couple of weeks, so expect to see
 (COMING SOON):

- Custom OC/UV kernel
- ClockWorkMod Recovery
- Add advanced power menu options (Reboot, Recovery, Download and Wipe Data (+ confirmation)
- 2.3.4 additions





Instructions:

RECOMMENDED BEFORE YOU BEGIN: 
Perform a full wipe of data/cache. Dial *#*#7780#*#* from your current ROM, and this will wipe data and perform a factory reset.

1. Download the zip file from the bottom of this thread and extract it
2. Boot your phone into download mode, and connect it to the PC
3. Open ODIN – you should see a COM port in yellow.
4. Click Ops and select Cooper
5. Click Boot and select APB_Bootxxxx.tar (not necessary if coming from KPE)
6. Click Phone and select Modem_xxxxx.tar (not necessary if coming from KPE)
7. Click PDA and select AceVR.tar.md5

IGNORE THE 2 POP-UP ERROR MESSAGES ABOUT INVALID BINARY – THIS IS NORMAL.

8. Once complete, the phone will reboot.

Now, please post any opinions, comments or feedback in this thread, and any requests
