CUSTOM ROMs Collection for Defy & Defy+

Guide/Steps to follow:

Boot into recovery: When you power ON the phone, press volume (-) hardware key as soon as you see blue notification light on top left corner of your phone. This will land you to the recovery mode menu.
Controls: Use Volume (+) and Volume (-) hardware keys to navigate through the menu and Power button to select the option.

1. Select "Wipe data/factory settings" ..... Confirm "Yes-Wipe data/factory settings"
2. Select "Wipe cache partition" ..... Confirm "Yes - Wipe cache partition"
3. Select "Install from sd card" ..... Select the ROM file you saved in your sd card and confirm it with "Yes"
4. Go to back>back until you reach the home menu of the recovery boot console. Then select "Advanced" option.
5. Select "Wipe Dalvik cache"
6. Select "Wipe battery cache"
7. Go to back and select "Install from sd card" .....select the kernel file you saved in your sd card and confirm it with "Yes".
Defy MB525 user should install Froyo/Gingerbread Kernel (Depends)
Defy+ MB526 user need not have to flash with kernel File. (just skip this process and move to step. 8 of this tutorial)
8. Select "install from sd card".....select the gapps file you saved in your sd card and confirm it with "Yes"
(gapps minimal recommended)
9. Please Note that not all custom roms will need gapps, and may need froyo or gingerbread kernel so if you have any doubts, ask and i'll try to help in the best way possible

Thanks and yea like HellRocker said, the links have been added, but they aren't really that necessary, cause it's almost the same procedure for each and every rom of defy and defy+

Hence i wrote the Steps to Follow Tutorial at the beginning of the Topic itself. If there are no xda links or screenshots, it just means that you will have to test it out on your own :)

I have tested all JB roms listed here in thread  :) & I can say best Rom for defy plus is CMX rom  :yahoo:. Very smooth & fast. I am lovin it  \m/

Only thing is u need to get the battery fix (Look for RedlensBatteryFix_Working.zip) from original CMX forum. At initial install Rom bricks the battery (even wipe battery stats doesn't work).

Thank you for share.
But I would like to know what is the use of flashing kernel file?
I rooted my phone, installed sndinit. Then flashed CM10 by following the standard procedure and then flashed gapps. In between I don't remember that I did do flash 'kernel file'.
But still my phone is fine.(better than froyo).
Could you help me regarding this?

Kernel file is required if the phone is Defy MB525. For Defy+ MB526 users, flashing kernel file is not required or infact not to flash kernel file.
Yes, without flashing Kernel file or even gapps, your phone will boot without issues.
From what i experienced with Defy MB525 without flashing kernel or flashing with wrong kernel is that it used to take more time in booting up of device. The boot time of the phone increases and phone gets serious lags upon usage.
