iDroid A rom with a feel of iOS(check it out)(screenshots and installation instructions included)

With more and more new custom roms are coming out in a market its a luring situation for Galaxy GT-S5570 POP/MINI users to try them out and make your device go cloud9. One more lucrative and awesome rom was just witnessed by me namely iDroid now why the dev named it an iDroid because its an Android OS with a feel of  Apple's iOS.

iDroid is a port of aftermarket JOYOS firmware, translated to English and with re-sized and re-designed layout to better fit the screen of galaxy mini handset.

It is a JOYOS port for GALAXY GT-S5570 POP/MINI by the DEV PrinceEndymion8. It is typical based on Cyanongen Mod RC1 rom by mebitek. Its a successful replica of the iOS and has a fresh feel to the modded  OS but all good things comes with some shortcomings it also has few with some limitation in iOS style OS some of the options are not clearly visible. Landscape mode is accessible error free with some applications only, Some of the Cyanongen mod settings are dummy like in this OS as most of them are unusable.

But with all these minimal and majorly unnoticeable errors. Its one of the best custom rom ever witnessed by me after a long time. The only custom rome avaible which provide the awesome iOS Experience to its users.
It is a huge improvement yo JOYOS port,which was not resized problem icons and notifications seem rather out viewable area. But the DEV has done a great job by resizing and redesigning the icons to the best of the viewable experience.

Now with all the roms flowing i wonder why not a way to install two OS in one phone and enjoy both of them just like a PC lol but still i havent seen such a thing so below are the mentioned features,glitches and improvments in iDroid for your information and after that it follows the sreenshots and step by step installation instructions. Ciao look for this OS in future as well it will come more stronger and error free OS and kudos to DEV PrinceEndymion8 dont forget to follow link to his thread and appreciate his efforts.
