  1. I get pleasure from, cause I found exactly what I used to bee having a lookk for.

    You’ve ended my four dayy long hunt! God Bless you man. Have a nice day.

  2. Hi, great blog.
    I use myth 3 ( Lastmyth) with holo launcher and is flawless. You mencioned only v1.0 you the text , would you update?

  3. I cant connect ace to odin as i already installed cm 7 mode.
    what should i do now?
    is there any other way to get back original rom?

    • full reset your galaxy ace…
      press volume up key+home key+power on key at one time…then open a page then select third no. option reset factory…for up down press volume keys (+,-) and for selection press home key…then rebot ur handset & ur handset is start….

  4. Im currently rooted my Galaxy Ace and change to CM7.2, after rooted found many bugs like sound volume become low, many apps force close, camera quality… feel regret to use tis rom… planning to change rom… but donno why a lot ppl suggested tis CM7.2…

    • well our the only one who is facing these problems!! my phone has become faster and better then before with cm7.2
      make sure you are using a stale version(official is stable)

  5. I have a galaxy ace, I’ve rooted it and installed ics myth, is there anything better or is this as good as I can get

  8. Always up to date? I don’t think so. This page hasn’t been updated in a while. CM7.2 by vo-1 Miracle is on v4, now, you still have v2.

  9. maclaw has done a gr8 work……………………
    if camera starts 2 work, it is the best and stable rom for ace

  10. Hi,

    I think the CyanogenMod7.2 RC1 by vo-1 MIRACLE Edition V2 should not be in the section called “Minor ROMS”. I’m using it since 2 weeks ago and it’s the best ROM i’ve ever used on my Ace. Just give it a try! It have the most battery life, no lag, etc.

    • For that you will need a CWM flashable package. So usually custom Roms can be flashed with that method. You can flash the stock firmware very easily using ODIN. Search the site for method.
