  1. cheers for sharing, ive been using Cm9 for a while its ok i do wonder if the memory is the key i keep getting low memory can’t download apps etc, maybe 7.2 is best option as its slightly smaller OS what you think ?

    • Well. I don’t recall if there is any difference between the memory for apps between cm9 and cm7.2. But if you are getting low memory, I would suggest trying to move some of the bigger applications over to SDcard if you haven’t already. That would be able to save up some space and allow you to download more apps. But overall, the Galaxy Ace’s memory is quite limited. Try to delete apps that you no longer need to preserve space.

      • Hi i was more on the side of the ROM size than APPS, with limited space i thought maybe 7.2 was slightly less heavy on memory

        keep up the blog excellent reading

        • Well, the ICS ROM should be bigger than the GB ROM (it is for SGS2) but I think that apps/firmware does share the system partition. In terms of RAM usage, there is probably also some difference but I did not characterize it.

      • hey eric i wanna upgarde my phone to cm9 rc2???wat are the problems in it??i want buetooth usb gmail music….work…camera iant a problem

        • Aside from camera and the occasional lags, CM9 RC2 is very much usable. Bluetooth is working, if I recall correctly. USB, GMail and music is certainly not an issue. Best to just make a nandroid backup of your current ROM and try out CM9 RC2 for yourself. =)

  2. You are right on CM9 beta 9 from Maclaw Studios, it’s not the battery ! its the rom, after 3/4 hours i have minimum battery. its really fast drain and i have 2450MUAH. But the rom is almost perfect if has not heavy drain battery. sorry for my bad english

    • Hi Carlos,
      Thanks for reading. For the battery drain, you can check if you have Location Services and GPS turned off as they are the ones to drain the most battery from what I’ve heard and experienced. Other than that, some people have recommended disabling Auto-Sync.
      But yes, the battery drain is quite heavy and I’m quite surprised to hear that it drains your 2450 mAh battery in just 3/4 hours!

  3. Hello Eric,
    I’ve tried CM10 Jellaxy – lags the phone tremendously and unusable. Its still under development though.
    CM9 ICS – fast if u don’t have too much apps on it. I installed go sms pro, whatsapp and line by naver and the phone started to lag up to the point tat i juz couldn’t take it anymore.
    CM7.2 R4 Apocalypse – Has the feel of ICS, fast, reliable and most importantly… stunning. I highly reccomand this mod to u.

    • Hey Joe,
      CM9 and/or CM10 most probably will not work perfectly on a Galaxy Ace. This is mostly due to the low amount of RAM on board (and partially the slow CPU/GPU). There’s only so much that the software can compensate for. =)
      Thanks for your tip on CM7.2 R4 Apocalypse. I’m no longer using/testing Galaxy Ace so I won’t be able to test it out for now. But, hopefully your tip can help someone who is looking for a good ROM for the Galaxy Ace.
      I did test an earlier version of the Apocalypse ROM previously which I gave a good review to. Its nice to see that work continued on this ROM.

    this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you
    can do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is fantastic blog.
    A great read. I will definitely be back.

  5. It’s going to be end of mine day, however before ending I am reading this fantastic
    paragraph to improve my experience.
    To price this uncompromising Esperanza Skank ‘I don’t think in ghosts, nevertheless I
    truly do believe in democracy. i [2] This individual
    was introduced to whatsapp spy by simply his mum. Equally amazing failure as well as unparalleled political accomplishment might be certified to help
    whatsapp spy.
    One thing’s certain. Your People species liberally wants whatsapp spy, in addition to also man than governmental policies?

    You can declare along with conviction whatsapp spy might not be a good thing given that cut up loaf of bread, yet it is
    nevertheless critical. The idea enriches,
    brings glamour to a unglamorous occasion along with stats indicate it is
    a winning formular.
    I am going to leave people using the text of Hollywood’s Kilometers Poppins:
    ‘I requirement whatsapp spy, absolutely nothing far more almost nothing much less.
