    Great Effort gone in by the developers. Rom works well too. but found it quite complicated to use. Not the Real Jelly Bean Rom. Users BEWARE THIS LAUNCHER IS AD SUPPORTED..

    Hi Neel,
    My Galaxy ACE is currently running on 2.3.6 KQ8. I want my Galaxy ACE to be running without any hanging problem. I’m ready to go upto any extent to achieve this. i.e Even ready to go to lower version firmwares – even not so good looking/appearing firmware also is fine for me – just solve the problem of hanging and sudden reduction in free RAM space while in edle state.
    Kindly give me suggestion, which firmware does this job to me.. pl. pl. pl…
