CyanogenMod 7.2 RC5.7 ROM For Galaxy Mini/Pop GT-S5570

UPDATE!!! Status Bar Carrier Logo fix, other fixes.
Cyanogen Mod 7.2 RC5.7, unofficial build by a xda-developer squadzone, is out  and available for all Samsung Galaxy Mini/Pop/Next GT-S5570 users to flash on their device. Like other unofficial kang builds from squadzone, this rom also comes with many bug fixes and is loaded with new features that are still unavailable with the official Cyanogen Mod 7.2 RC1 build. Some of the new features include : new options added in Power Options (you can get this by long pressing Power/Lock button); an menu option to show partitions information added in Settings; Honeycomb style lock screen to add further beauty to your device; recent applications in notification drawer to help you launch your mostly used app almost instantly within seconds and last but not the least, a whole new Power Saver Settings options in CyanogenMod Settings to help you prolong (increase) your battery life.

These features mentioned above are the major ones and only few ones to name. But, they are not the end to the list. As you flash this custom ROM and explorer through it you will find out more features and new addition. Also, not to forget that this rom is much more stable than previous releases and comes with improved performance and speed.

Everything in the rom seems to be working fine, except for the exception of one small bug. It was noticed during the test phase that phone.apk (Dialer app) force close when choosing speed dial list from the menu. Other than that, It couldn't figure out any more. However, if you come to find any bugs then you can share them at the comments below as well as post them at this thread on xda-developers forum and request the fixes from the developer.

That's all about this CM 7.2 RC5.7 custom rom. Almost everything works fine in this rom and below I have quoted everything that's working from the developers thread.
