EmanoN v7 Final ROM(EmanoN Series Released)(with features of Cynanogenmod)(screens and flashing instructions included)

So After awating for a period long its a good news for samsung galaxy pop/mini users, there is finally an update of the all time favorite emanoN rom.  Parasmi, an XDA Dev. on 15th august released the final build of this rom, previously he also released the pre-final version which were though unstable but looked and potrayed  for promising future ahead in development of this rom. The pre-final release was an early one so it came with lot of bugs and was intially not working properly, many of the features were inaccisible.

But the final release changed all my perception towards this emanoN rom v7 and with built in features of cyanogenmod and awesome UI, this version make all the stock roms goes hola hoo.


enamoN v7 rom comes with lots of tweaks, improvements and bug fixes, it gives you the feel of the stock GB rom but as well it enhances the user experience by including in its package more and more features of the cyanogenmod rom almost all.

Features such as Lock-screen Music Widget, Volume Buttons Music control, included DSP Equalizer and improved Sound quality makes this rom an awesome choice for music lovers. Also, handy emanoN settings menu added to the System Settings consists of various customizations options that provides you with the ability to set a lock-screen of your choice from many available ones, customize the status bar look and feel according to user choice, adjust CPU Frequencies, Add or Remove toggle widgets to Notification Drawer, Turn on/off CRT animations, etc. which really add up to provide an awesome user experience.

It also includes various utilities in itself just like Samsung Secret codes, Task Manager and an Application Manager app with ability to uninstall and/or disable both system as well as user applications, etc.

So, as we can see the overall user experience has been enhanced from his previous enamoN v6 release.

Even with bombastic tweaks and features it is still able to perform most of it regular routine tasks with ease and efficiency and also it includes all the hardware enabled features such as WiFi, gps, Bluetooth, Camera,
radio etc.

The extracts of the developer's thread are right here which gives us the view to major changes in the rom.

  • Latest Android 2.3.6 Europe firmware (S5570XWKTN)
  • Integration of CM7 features which includes:
    • Accelerometer rotation options
    • Custom long-press home key and menu key actions
    • Haptic feedback tweaks
    • Full port of lockscreen options including music controls
    • Statusbar soft keys
  • More notification power widget options. Added media and screen off buttons as well
  • Update statusbar color options
  • Add option for statusbar notification background color
  • Fixed date overlay in statusbar
  • Improved swipe to clear notification
  • Add center clock option

  • Change reboot option in extended power menu and added Hot Reboot
  • Replaced stock music app with CM music
  • Replaced TouchWiz launcher with ADW (CM7 version)
  • Removed No Frills CPU (you can change CPU frequency via emanoN settings)
 Thats it folks thats all about this rom and now you can enjoy this rom by flashing it onto your mobile, developer Parasmi has tried to make this rom an exciting one and also it takes a lot of effort to make this rom look big on us, so he is doing the developing little by little by including the features of cyanogenmod in further releases,you'll notice a lot of placeholders under emanoN settings. These placeholders will be removed with the addition of the suggested features in future releases, when parasmi figures out how these options operate.


Possible workaround which you can follow to resolve them:

  • Force close on any web app when you click drop-down bars on websites.
  • Clock is not displayed in status bar by default . Workaround : Change clock color in emanoN Settings > Interface > Status bar Tweaks > Clock Tweaks
  • Lock screen wallpapers (Settings > Display > Wallpapers) do not work on any lock screens. Workaround : You can change lockscreen background from Choose background option in emanoN Settings > Lockscreen > Style Options.
  • Lock screen settings and options only works with CyanogenMod lock screens.
  • Meizu lock screen displays "Connect your charger" when plugged in or connected.
  • Artist and song information under Artist tab in Music App are not displayed. Workaround : Try using another Music Player if needed.
  • Some status bar tweaks settings are not immediately taking effect. Workaround : Reboot your handset Or, deselect and reselect options And/Or re-start status bar.

Next to follow is the installation/flashing instructions and thereafter are the screenshots, ciao and enjoy the rom and don't forget to give credit to the developer or either go to his thread and pay thanks to him

Thats it techies now you have successfully installated the emanoNROM-v7-FINAL.zip rom in your handset and explore it features to fullest and when you are done with it you can restore it to the previous stable OS of yours by going to Clock Work Mod Recovery. my word of advice though is to keep your phone for few minutes after flashing as it takes a few minutes for a phone to load necessary files and make your mini ready to be used

Also here are few tips that can help you get the best experience from this emanoN custom rom.

  • The rom reboots itself once just after successful flash. It is suggested not to use your handset till it reboots itself again once  after you flash the rom.
  • Set Cyanogenmod lockscreen only. This is because lockscreen music widget is only shown on them.
