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

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 :)

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.

Thank you sir, for your quick reply. But I would like to know one more thing. I know many ask this question and I'm sorry to be lazy and not to search all those pages. :(

So my question is,can I flash both kernel on my DEFY MB525(GL)..? Or Flashing GB kernel would affect my phone?

And as I am a newbie to all this rooting and flashing stuff, I would also like to know that like if I want to test different roms on my phone how could I get back the data installed on the previous roms.? Like I am using CM10(4.1.1) now and want to flash CM7.2[because battery back-up really sucks]. So if I make a back-up of CM10, data would it run on CM7.2 rom?

I have many questions regarding all this.

Your help would be very helpful. I could help others too. :)

You should not flash with Gingerbread kernel for Defy MB525 Green lens..... Always flash with Froyo kernel for your phone.

And flashing of kernel is ROM dependant....its not advisable to flash kernel if the ROM developer didnt mention such.

Like for 4.1.1 by QUarx, it is required to flash with Froyo kernel for MB525 users. But for MB526 users, its not required to flash with any kernel files.

Some ROM makers include kernel files inside the ROM zip file itself and hence they do not advice to flash any kernel file in their development release thread/topic.

The latest 4.1.2 JB ROM by Quarx has injected kernel files inside the ROM zip file and hence you do not need to flash with any sort of kernel file seperately. The kernel gets installed automatically when you install the ROM file as its inbuilt with the ROM zip.

And for backup, what sort of backup you are referring to ?

Is it CWM backup...the backup options where you get in the recovery boot menu?

If so, thats the complete ROM backup and not the apps backup....

If you wish to take backup of all the apps you have installed, you can try the famous app named" Titanium backup pro"

that takes the app backup and restore it too. Although I never used this app and hence cant say how to use it properly. But i guess, you will get a short intro of how to use this app when you install and open the app in your phone. Try it once.

Hello guys,

But since few days, my camera is making some fluttering noise while using camera related things.

two of my softkeys are dimmed and rests two are lit normally.

Please give me suggestion/solutions.

its normally happens with certain roms, try flashing from beginning with another rom in which all these used to work properly. The dim light button problem happens when some roms are bugged, and they tend to cause damage to the buttons especially the brightness, flashing again normally fixes it, otherwise it is a hardware defect, and you will have to get it fixed at the service center.
