Custom Rom Lite Remix For Wave 1 & 2


This Rom is not developed by me I am just sharing it here.


A customizable CFW:
The Lite Remix is the most customizable CFW available for the GT-S8500 And GT-8530. Customizable means: easily customizable by you. Once you did the basic install of the Lite Remix, you may choose which apps are installed, which apps show up in the main menu, how much app memory you have free, which lockscreen (original or new) to use, boot animations, boot screens and even which Bada FW core (XXLG1, JVLC2 or DDLC2) to use – all this without losing any data and having to set up everything a new. Although the Lite Remix is originally based on Hero355′s and Nexus’ work, it now has many unique features.

A ‘lite’ CFW:
Although this CFW is lite in every sense of the word, meaning only the absolutely basic, non memory wasting stuff is included in the base install, you’re not actually missing on anything. You may have everything other CFWs have in this one, too, but at your own choice and pace. You may add and remove anything that you need at your own will, and on top of that I’m providing easy to follow instructions for you to do so. The goal of this CFW is to be lite and easy on RAM, so that even HD Games like Tintin work good on it, while still keeping functionality. It is also intended as a solid base for other CFW projects of your own.

Choose your own base FW:
Using the core patches you may change the base FW (standard: XXLG1) for this (JVLC2 and DDLC2 patches included in the main archive). You won’t lose any data flashing them and you can always go back. If you should notice problems such as lag, low battery life or non-working push email, I highly recommend using the JVLC2 FW core from the all-in-one-package above instead. Patching is easy, safe and quick. Updated core patches are now included in the LiteRemix XXLG1 archive (extras folder) itself.

Thanks go to…:
This is based on Nexus’ XXLD2Hero355′s Amazing Turko CFW v8 and Hero355s Fully Lite CZLC2. I included only what I deemed the best features from both worlds and also did some heavy modifications of my own. Also, big thanks to B. Kubica, Cybekteam, Ho1od, Dokugogagoji, Adfree, Greg.Stephens and _Aurex_, who made some of the modifications possible.

Complete list of features in LiteRemix XXLG1 v4:

I included five different CSC files in this CFW:

o Languages: English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese, Turkish, Irish
o Languages: English, Slovenian, Croatian, Romanian, Bulgarian, Macedonian, Serbian, Russian, Estonian, Latvian
o Languages: English, German, French, Italian, Dutch, Spanish, Greek, Portuguese, Swedish, Turkish, Hungarian, Croatian, Czech, Bulgarian, Romanian, Serbian, Slovenian, Irish
o Languages: German, English, French, Dutch, Swedish, Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Icelandic
o Languages: English, German


Basic instructions for installing the Lite Remix:


Full Flashing
[1] Select from the CSC folder the CSC file fitting your needs (check 
    the accompanied text file). 
[2] Select from the MenuCFG folder the menu configuration fitting your 
    needs (optional, only if you want Java apps in the main menu).
[3] Full flash with CSC, MenuCFG and the files from this directory.
[4] Still confused? You might want to use Google and search for a 
    flashing tutorial.

I Want More App Memory!
Alright, I heard you. Just use the alternate FFS file inside the 
'zzz_extras' folder inside of the standard. Has to be applied during 
full flash, and you'll have to manually update Samsung Market this way, 
but you'll have ~10MB additional app memory, which might come in handy 
for demanding HD games. 

Music Hub, Caster, SevenIM, Widgets...
You might wonder where all the additional apps and widgets have gone. In 
the liteRemix, these are provided via a seperate extended bonus package 
with instructions included. You may add these to your running FW at any 
time without any data loss at all. Yup, your contacts, messages, memos, 
... will stay intact, even if you add these later on. 

Core Patches?
As the only Bada 2.0 CFW available, the liteRemix provides you with the 
possibility to hot swap the core components of your FW. Turkish JVLC2 
and indian DDLC2 are provided as alternatives (don't worry, your set 
language won't be affected by using the patches). If you're experiencing 
slowdowns and/or lag in your installation, why not try this? Check the 
core patches folder (in zzz_extras) for instructions! Again, hot 
swapping the FW core components is done without any data loss. 

I Want The Original Lockscreen Back!
No problem, just check the original lockscreen folder inside the 
zzz_extras folder. Again, you won't have any data loss adding this to a 
running installation. Starting to see a pattern here? 

Still want more?
Checkout the extended bonus package for a lot more stuff: additional 
ringtones, wallpapers, boot images, boot animations, BadaDroid patch,

Download Links For Samsung Wave 2

Everything you need to start is included in the main archive. Use the v3.99 edition if you don’t want the new icons and quickpanel. Bonus stuff such as ringtones, wallpapers, application/widget installs, boot animations and boot images are included in the extended bonus package.

If you want Java apps in main menu check the MenuCFG folder (in extras) before full flashing!
Big thanks to Nexus and Hero355 for their great work that this is based on!

    Listen all wave 2 users please do not try to install this rom on ur wave 2 GT-S8530 because as per my experience it got my wave 2 bricked and i had to use many other methods but finally got it working. The rom gets stuck while flashing with the multiloader and does not get completed with the flashing process. So please do not go for it. According to me, wait for Elite V5 to be released becauseElite v4 is the best rom which i have used with no problem at all but has no Samsung LBS app but is quite fast and light.
