Install CyanogenMod 7 (CM7) on Samsung Galaxy Y S5360


The humble Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 has finally gotten its CyanogenMod 7(CM7) ROM made unofficially for it. It is just a slightly tweaked version of the CyanogenMod 7 for the Galaxy Ace but it does work. It is still only being tested right now and has many bugs. Installing Cyanogen Mod 7 on the Galaxy Y requires a rooted phone which in case you don't have you can root from here. Don't worry about rooting you can always unroot and get back the warranty.

Here is list of the bugs on this CyanogenMod 7 port for the Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 as per the developers:

1. Lock screen bug - when i press the lock the lcd dont turned off and it shows white screen only.
2. auto rotation bug - when u check the auto rotation it will go horizontal and accelerometer dont work but when u uncheck it it will go back to the normal display
3. Camera - force closes
4. Gallery - working but its too laggy
5. Brightness - not working even u select lower brightness it will stay at the higher brightness.
5. No base band and all connections except usb.
6. battery shows 1% even it is 80%
7. notification bar is laggy when u pull it down.
8. Graphic Driver
9. GPS
10. Wi-fi
11. Sound
Here is how you can install the ROM.

You will need to flash three files in this process. That is the rooting update, Clockwork Recovery and of Course CM 7 ROM. Below is a quick walk through on how to flash a file.

Download the *****.zip to flash.

No need to extract. Copy the zip file to the root of the SD Card and do not paste it to any folders in the SD Card.

Now switch off your phone

After the phone is switched off, enter into recovery mode. To do this, hold the power, volume up and the home button simultaneously.

Now can navigate through recovery mode only with the volume up and down buttons. Select *****.zip and the root will be applied on your Galaxy Y.

Flash the files in the order of download links below. If you have already rooted and installed Clockwork Recovery then skip flashing the 2 files.

Rooting Update

Clockwork Mod Recovery

CyanogenMod 7 ROM

That's it. Now you have installed CyanogenMod 7(CM 7) on the Galaxy Y. You may want to check out these ICS ROMs for Galaxy Y instead of this ROM which is currently as you can see filled with bugs. You can also want to try out CM9 on the Galaxy Y.
