android ROMs Rooting

CyanogenMod 10.1 for Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos-Latest

I hope you have already tried the latest CyanogenMod 10.1 for Samsung Galaxy mini. This time I bring the Android 4.2.1 CM10.1 for Samsung Galaxy Ace instead of galaxy mini. Though I don’t have galaxy Ace, I tried to install the below ROM on my friend’s device and surprisingly it got flashed without any issues.

As you can see in my galaxy mini post, most of my loyal readers asked me to provide the latest CyanogenMod 10.1 ROMs for galaxy Ace. The main reason why I’m not intended to post about SGA, aka, Samsung galaxy Ace is I don’t like to roughly provide the links without testing in my own devices.

Thanks to my friend for giving me his phone to root and install CM10.1. I was bit confused about its result since I’ve a bitter experience with SGA. That I will tell you later. Let’s come to the matter.

CyanogenMod is always a great source for experiencing high end features in any low and legacy devices like SGM and SGA. The only thing which we lack after trying the ROM is our poor phone’s hardware configuration. However, something is better than nothing. Nope, I may don’t call it as “something” because you will get almost anything as we usually gets in high end phones except hardware functionalities after using custom ROMs.

Here I provide the latest updated version of CyanogenMod 10.1 for Samsung Galaxy Ace.
