Yes my friends when Htc Explorer came in the market its low specs made people think that this deivice wouldn’t see many custom roms , well but they are wronged again ! This little beast boasting a 600 mhz arm v7 cpu and a adreno 200 gpu has now over 50 custom roms ! And that’s where our job begins ! we tried ALL roms one by one and stripped the list to TOP 3. It was a hard choice but we did it and we proudly present the revised edition of top 3 custom roms for htc explorer.

CyanogenMod 10 (nightly – 27/08/2012) for Galaxy Mini/Pop GT-S5570


In this nightly, the major change is that the camera is now working right from the time you flash and you no longer have to copy the lib files to get it working.Apart from that, there are not much changes.So, here are the screenshots, changelog and the flashing details.

Changelog-Quote from original thread

* Partially fixed camera (can take pictures, video recording and panaroma in stock app will come later)
* Added correct permissions for sdcard, so apps can access it.
* Optimized boot animation performance
* UMS should be working now. If it’s not:
> try rebooting the device
> Open terminal emulator; run this command “setprop persist.sys.usb.config mass_storage,adb” (without ” of course) and reboot
NOTE: I did some “experiments” in the kernel (long story short, increased graphics memory) so in this build we have only 269MB of accessible RAM. It’s also possible to reduce graphics memory to get more RAM, but I think that is not such a good idea.
