People who were longing to get their hands on Samsung Galaxy Ace have now lost their love for it and are in search of a ROM to give it a makeover. There are hundreds of custom ROMs available for Samsung Galaxy Ace in the market and finding one that you may like is a job that drives you crazy. I’ve described some of the features of the ROMs I used for my Samsung Galaxy Ace to ease your quest.
There are some really cool features in this ROM to liven up your phone until you get a Jelly Bean. Its Lockscreen Gestures let you draw pictures related to your apps on the lockscreen to launch the apps. You can also use Phone Goggles to filter all the communications from and to your Samsung Galaxy Ace. Its OpenVPN allows you to do a number of tasks like tunneling IP sub networks, configuring VPN server farms, and more. With CM9 CyanogenMod, you can browse in Incognito Mode and choose to skip storing your browsing history. It also clears all the cookies stored during Incognito browsing.
The second on the list is Apocalypse CM7, which is popular for its cool visual elements, apps, and performance. One of the notable features of this ROM is its 30 step audio moderation. It is pre-deodexed and has a firekernel OC developed by Dragon. You get various tweaks such as graphics enhancement tweaks, performance, dialing, power saving tweaks, and others. Some of the apps include Holo Home Launcher, Blue Torch, QuickPic image viewer, Google Play Store apps, and more. You can also set a transparent status bar to view the applications in a bigger size.
XperiaTized gives your Samsung Galaxy Ace an elegant look. Its features and functionality prove that what meets the eye is not deceptive. It’s also pre-deodexed and has DTa2sd support. Some of its other features include Xperia S Widgets, animations, call sliders, and modded music player. There is also a battery extender included in its version 11 and a centered lock clock. The battery charge will last longer than when using other ROMs. I never had problems with battery charge even on the days I forgot to charge the battery.
ImaGinary ICS also has some helpful features that you would love. It is based on stock XWKTE 2.3.6 and is pre-rooted and pre-deodexed. It supports almost 55 Asian, Middle East, and European languages. You get Ice Cream Sandwich boot animation, keyboard, and wallpapers. It also has a smooth scroll mode, which is one of the things I liked most about it. It also includes the script that you will need to manage RAM Adrenaline Boost version 3. I feel that no one can dislike its CRT animation effects and the overscroll glow.
Similar to ImaGinary ICS, it is also based on 2.3.6 XWKTM. Its Bravia Engine and MegaBassBeats Audio Libs make it truly desirable. Its S3 icons and Roboto font give it a neat look. The Dandelion live wallpaper is the most impressive of all. You can also choose other wallpapers using its Wallpaper Chooser from Jelly Bean wallpapers and S3 wallpapers. Its Adrenaline Engine adds more speed to the already fast ROM.
I have tried all the five and didn’t dislike any of them. If you are looking for only a makeover in colors, S’Periance is your ROM and if you want more features, you can go for CM9 CyanogenMod.
