Windows Phone 8 ROM Review

This ROM is one of my favourite ROM because of its simplicity and minimalistic looks. with this we can have looks of Windows Phone 8 with beautiful live updating tiles.  this ROM is based on Cyanogenmod 7.2 Democracy ROM and it comes with Dolphin browser as default browser.

features I liked:

  1. Customization of tiles
  2. Good Battery Life
  3. Fast and Smooth Launcher with zero lag
  4. Windows OS like boot animation

So my Suggestion for you is to try out this ROM at-least once and you’ll love it.

    Hi !
    I think it’s a great custom rom and I want to install it on my phone, but it’s not a Galaxy Ace but a LG Optimus Hub, it’s exactly the same phone as the Galaxy Ace (same specifications) but by LG. Will it work or is the rom based on Touch Wiz?

  15. Is CWM version 5 a must, or I can use CWM 4 too?

    • No you have to use CWM 5.

    • Anonymous says:

      you can use any version…

      the main thing is to get the CWM recovery options…..

      that all is same in all CWM versions…..

      but if you want to get some additional features on app itself than you should use CWM 5…
