  8. Hi Pradeep Neela,

    Thanks much bro, I could able to update TiramiSlim Final V. 1.0 without any issues. its Awesome !!!

  9. I
    install this the Tirami Slim Custom ROM firmware rom.

    It was really hard to install, because the touch screen is not working well.

    After installing this rom, my phone can’t start up.

    So, this Rom is not working!

  10. when ever I am trying to install this rom I am getting an error.. Can Any ! please tell me the steps taken while installing this rom??

    I did

    Wipe data/factory….>>Wipe partition>>Wipe Dalvik Cache>>reboot Recovery>>Install from SD>>browsed to file…
    tried installation.. What next??? I mean what all options you have selected to install this rom?

  11. Hi all,

    Those who find problem in installing this RoM. You can update this ROm from FK4mod custom Rom.
    Reboot to recovery
    wipe to factory reset
    wipe cache partition
    advance- wipe Dalvik cache
    reboot to recovery
    Install from Zip–Browse for Zip(Tiramislim)

    It opens the Installation screen after some time.
    Select Demon installation( hope it is option number 3)
    Then select the prompts.
    Select default installation when it prompts.
    Finally select the install tab to get install.

    When i tried to install by XXJV4 i get the same error which is mentioned by others and was not able to select the option while installion by the screen. I had to do it by the side keys. Now you can do by the screen itself.

  12. Im on 2.2.1 can I update it to this rom?

  13. can i apply this rom on 2.2.1?

  14. Yes I also had the same experience. But I succeeded after many failed attempts. I was on GB XXJVU. In order to get the smooth installation of this update, I think, it is necessary to be on any ICS firmware. Being on GB XXJVU rooted, I installed first the F4K MOD ICS 4.0.4, then did factory rest, wiped cache and dalvik cache and applied the Tirami Slim ICS ROM successfully. It is so far running smoothly with my device!

  15. I m on ics333 is this rom is better for me…

  16. i had applied this rom very smooth runing my sgs.
