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.

  6. Hi, I have installed the ROM and its looks good. But, I see few bugs like 1. In mail and Facebook apps, I’m not able to see Tamil font, 2. The previous, play/pause, Forward button on the notification bar doesn’t support the music apps. 3. The pop-up window gets merged with background display (the pop-up window is not clear), 4. While using music apps, if I reduce the volume it automatically reduces the call volume, etc…Do u have any suestion for this…

  7. 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?
    Thanks for your answer !

    Post a Reply
    • Well the thread on XDA mentions that this ROM is for Galaxy Ace S5830 and it’s based on CM 7.2 Democracy not on TouchWiz. so the ROM will not work on your Optimus Hub.

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

    Post a Reply
    • 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…

      Please

      Dont Clap… I Know I M GENIUS…!!!!
