Request for CM for Samsung Galaxy Pocket S5300
Samsung Galaxy Pocket is a popular handset and this is really sad that no developer has taken interest in making a suitable custom ROM for Samsung Galaxy Pocket. We have already mentioned the rooting procedure for Galaxy Pocket in one of our articles some days back. Here’s the link: http://www.androidust.com/root-samsung-galaxy-pocket-s5300-with-simple-steps/.
This handset is something that should never be underestimated. It has some rocking specs and features that deserve a mention herein. Just read on for specs and features of Samsung Galaxy Pocket.
Features of Galaxy Pocket:
2.8 inch capacitive touch screen with screen resolution of QVGA
240 x 320 Pixels
832 MHz processor with 384MB of RAM
Android Gingerbread OS
3GB of internal memory and up to 32GB addition with micro SD card slot
2MP rear camera
1200 mAh battery with standby time up to 320 hours and talk time up to 520 min
Looking into the features of Samsung Galaxy Pocket it is for sure that the handset is quite rocking by all means. But when it gets attention of developers there would be nothing as good as that. We have hopes from CM team and hope that soon there’s a CyanogenMod ROM for Galaxy Pocket. There are many forums where discussion threads in regards to custom ROM for Galaxy Pocket have started. Galaxy Pocket users are quite desperate to get into the custom ROM mode.
Just check this CM Forum, you will find that how badly users need CM for Galaxy Pocket, http://forum.cyanogenmod.com/topic/52283-cm-for-samsung-galaxy-pocket-gt-s5300/. Users don’t even mind getting CM5 Firmware. But first we expect some testers to unlock bootloader for Galaxy Pocket so that custom ROMs and custom kernels can be loaded on the phone. By unlocking the bootloader you will be able to load kernel and ROMs etc.Some people feel that rooting Galaxy Pocket will open way for custom ROMs. But it’s not that. For installing custom ROMs you need to unlock the Android first.
Moral of the story is this post is an earnest request to the developers (we hope CyanogenMod Team is reading this) that there’s a need for a custom made software aka custom ROM. Galaxy Pocket is a cheap phone with a few good features. With custom ROM addition user experience can be enhanced. This is what we all want.
