      I installed and too received the same problem. the XDA-Guys said “Perhaps the Rom is corrupted”.
      Reflash the rom from other source… But acc to me it is a bug in the unofficial release.

    Yashodhan Wagle To go back to 2.3.6 i.e. the stock Rom of your phone, you must have the Rom backup. If you did not made the backup at the time of flashing, then you have to download the stock Rom for this phone and flash it!

  • September 1, 2013 at 11:54 pm

    Hello all,
    As there have been too many comments, it is very difficult to reply to every one. So, if you face any problem first read all the comments if similar problem is solved there and take the help of the person who had the same problem.
    Also, I am listing some tips to be implemented if facing any problem:
    -First check if the problem is solved by removing the battery and restarting the phone.
    -Try re-flashing the ROM without flashing GAPPS.
    -Try re-flashing the ROM by wiping the the Dalvik Cache exactly one time before flashing the ROM and after flashing the ROM.
    Thank you!

  • August 19, 2013 at 12:22 am

    Yashodhan Wagle few apps only, as most apps which need 4.0 + android version need good hardware and as Galaxy POP is less in hardware, no matter which ROM we use, those apps won’t work

  • August 19, 2013 at 12:20 am

    basooly0104 oh yes, actually, the screenshots are from earlier version which has been updated to 4.2.2 but due to no changes in the interface I uploaded the same images, bit lazy u know.. :p

  • August 13, 2013 at 3:45 pm

    IonutBogdanDragomir Try reflashing the ROM without flashing GAPPS, this ROM has not any bugs like the problem you mentioned. For me, everything the home button, lock screen patterns, passwords, slide options, widgets everything is working fine. and please make sure your device is GT-S5570 only (not 5570i)

  • IonutBogdanDragomir
    August 13, 2013 at 12:14 pm

    Rahul Dubey IonutBogdanDragomir nop, home button itself, it doesnt wake device, if u assign functions for longpress they dont work, it doesnt send apps in background, also security things for locking screen dont work, things like slide for unlock, pattern, etc

      karankapur1993 There is no such ROM which increases the internal memory. You have to partition the SD card, and that is very easy. 
      I am using Galaxy POP personally and I have installed the above mentioned ROM and partitioned the SD Card, my phone is working super cool. 🙂

        Hi Rahul Dubey
        Thanks for your prompt response. Well, I followed above method only as you described as (1.), (2.) (3.) but it got aborted after 1 minute or so. I tried 2 times. Fortunately, I somehow could recover by using odin multidownloader and firmware file.

        • August 1, 2013 at 9:34 pm

          njain Rahul DubeyI have myself rooted my galaxy POP and then I have written these steps. Don’t know what’s going wrong with your device. I am glad that you were able to recover previous firmware. 🙂
          Thank You
