    6. I'm using it and it is a marvel of ROM, and apart from the bugs of bluethoot and camera, no bugs rather heavy as it restarts from time to time, in the music player when you select a song, you play the next song and same happens when you lock and unlock the screen to hear the song and go to the next, not play videos, and there are problems with the screen, sometimes blurry and something ugly and with reference to the kernel, when I installed, has the same bug than Rafael, do not read the SIM card contacts.

      But I appreciate all your efforts to create this ROM, thank you.

      Best regards, 97carmine

    7. how to flash the kernel?

    8. Hey i've ben installed the CM7 RC1 and it works . But wen i installed google apps . And Google apps dont shows upp. Why ? Help pleasee.

    9. Biel Hello, I installed RC 1, and goes better than beta 4, especially about the music but CyanogenMod Settings settings, screen does not work any of your options, the animation is off and rotate the screen 180 degrees does not work, the camera works from time to time, sometimes it works and sometimes not, when you turn the screen, the screen turns green for one or two seconds and when you leave the camera app, if you're playing music, you go to the next song and please, put the app on the radio, if you are interested in putting a link to let you kick CyanogenMod 7 Galaxy GT-s5830 and there is an app that is quite curious and is one that shows all mobile secret codes, how bad it can not be used, can be installed but not used

      Radio App:

    10. Olá Biel, primeiramente quero agradecer a você e toda sua equipe pelos enormes esforços Eu estou usando RC 1 esta funcionando muito bem mas quando você abre um jogo ele roda e em alguns momentos ele trava e fecha sozinho e as vezes falta áudio, e se você poder adicionar o aplicativo radio na rom ficarei muito grato muito obrigado e parabéns pelo seu maravilhoso trabalho abraço.

    11. ask me to unlock network pin code

    12. Thanks a lot!!

    13. Biel, quero agradecer pelo seu trabalho duro, afinal esse modelo de Ace é provavelmente um dos celulares mais difíceis de trabalhar. Queria apenas frisar para você que o compartilhamento de internet através do cabo USB não está funcionando, que foi um bug não relatado pelo pessoal.

      E novamente, muito obrigado!!

    14. Olá Biel, queria apenas relatar que na Rom RC1 mesmo com a opção "Desbloquear com botão menu" desativada, o recurso continua habilitado, o que se torna inconveniente para quem utiliza o desbloqueio por gestos.

      E parabéns pelo seu excelente trabalho!!!

    15. Hi, I'm trying to port the CM for Galaxy Pocket, was wondering if you could help me.
      I'm using your ROM as a base to Beta 3 tava the wifi working, so after the Beta 4, is no longer working.
      The probable cause may be the kernel I'm using.

      I wanted to thank you for your great work.

      Sorry for the English Google Translate.

    40. Hi, is a excelent Rom, but i have a problem is that FM Radio not working? some idea how to make it work?

    41. Hello,
      Just a few questions to the great developer :-)

      1. Is RC 3 or RC 4 the stablest version ?
      2. Is your CM Port for the Samsung Galaxy Ace(i) Version stable enough for daily work and is the version up to date? Because you stopped the developing of it.
      3. Is your CM 9 Version more stable as your CM 7 Version for Samsung Galaxy Ace (i) ?

      Thank you for your answers and your great work :-)

    42. please help the bluetooth doesnt work how repair it??

    43. I cant use 2g/3g , please help!

    44. For me bluetooth does not work either. I can connect my headset and control the player with it, but I don't hear any music.
      Also sending mms does not work (checked APN several times...).
      Does anyone know how to fix these problems?

    45. Hey...

      First... Congratulations, nice project you are doing.

      Second. I'm running the RC3 version, and there is a bug with compass... All apps show a very high interference with the sensor (up to 1500 μ) . Google Maps cannot detect phone's position or any other compass app. What could it be? Normally must be no more than 20 μ.

      Sorry for my bad english.

    46. i did yours but my google apps not installed?

    57. How do we download applications from google play?
      I do not see google play after flashing this ROM...

    58. Gracias, funcionó perfectamente en un S5830M, solo dio problemas para flashear el GAPPS, flasheaba bien pero no resultaba nada, lo resolvi montando system y cache antes de flashear y listo.

    59. Hi,
      I own a S ACE S5839i with stock ROM. I've tried to install your CM7 rom, SIM and microSD inside the phone, from the downloads of your site and following your tutorial. All seems OK, but when I reboot my phone it stays stuck on the S5839i logo. I've tried many wipes, format,... in recovery mode but it changes nothing, no success. Does anybody have an idea ?
      Thank's for any help, even if I'm not sure to be in the good section,

    60. if you want to enable monitor mode on Alce s5830i (bcm21553 chipset)
      you have to extract or create the bcm21553 bundle

      see all the step here :

      my personal note:i think going directly to the will make us less dependent of the bcmon.apk who need to be added some drivers compabilities

      check here

    61. ...going directly to the chipset bundle...
      cause when i checked the bcmon drivers on the last link,i saw only nexus one and samsung S2 drivers

    62. but if ! you Are courageous and want Even though to modify the Apk(bcmon),
      make it Available on this Room

      otherwise content yourself to withdraw or make a bundle for the bcm21553 chipset ;) i hope i have made the thing more clear noW *kiss*
