How To Update Samsung Galaxy SL I9003 with Most Popular Cranium Custom ROM Firmware

Cranium ROM LogoYou asked for it, and its here! For all those who were asking for a stable custom ROM for Samsung Galaxy SL I9003, it’s here as in the due course of this article we will be checking out on how you can update with the latest yet stable firmware of “CRANIUMV3.1” which is the star of the custom firmwares with Million+ users. Please note that this firmware is not officially made by Samsung Electronics Ltd. The best part of this firmware is that this comes with a host of features that it’s just beyond your expectations.

It was last time we saw on how you can install the Nexus Custom ROM in your phone and this time this is the one.

Disclaimer: Please note that we should not be held responsible in any manner in whole or in parts if any damage is done to your device caused by updating the firmware which is a very unlikely event if you follow the instructions as mentioned in the article including the pre requisites and the procedure to update the phone.

Caution: This update should not be applied to the devices which have model number apart from Samsung Galaxy SL I9003 or else it will brick the device.

Screen Captures of Cranium Custom ROM:

Cranium 1 Cranium 2 Cranium 3 Cranium 4 Cranium 5 cranium 6 Cranium 7 Cranium 8 Cranium 9 Cranium 10

Essential Pre Requisites:

  • Backup all the data present in the device so as to ensure that the data present in the device stays safe. Just in case if any data is lost / corrupted, the same can be restored easily with the help of below mentioned steps.

Notes – Backup in the mail so that you can then restore manually,
SMS Messages – Use “SMS Backup & Restore app”,
Contacts Stored in Phone Memory – Sync with the Gmail application,
Call Log - Call Log and Restore Videos,
Images, Videos & Files etc.– Copy to internal / External SD Card,
Internet & MMS Settings – Backup all the settings from “Applications > Settings > Wireless and Network > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names

  • Ensure that you have ADMIN privileges in your computer so as To get the full USB read / write access. Close all the tools like Firewalls, Antivirus suites and also the PC Suites in your computer or else these tools will tend to interrupt the process of rooting.
  • Also, you need to ensure that the phone is left with the minimum of 50% battery charge so as to ensure that the phone doesn’t get turned Off in the middle of rooting process.
  • Ensure that your phone is charged more than 95% so as to avoid the battery calibration effort in the later stage which we will see in the coming days on how this is done on your Android phones which are rooted. If you proceed for the further steps without this battery limit then you may experience lesser battery backup.

So assuming that you have followed all the instructions carefully, it’s now time for you to proceed to next page where we have summed up the detailed procedure on how to update with this custom ROM firmware.
