TechWhizZ199 Posted March 28, 2014 Report Share Posted March 28, 2014 IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ ALL OF THE ARTICLE BEFORE ASKING! Introduction: Hello again to all the Gizmolord Forum user's, my name is TechWhizZ199 if you did not know me, today i will present to yet another CFW out of the archives. Before i press on, i must highlight some issues still pending with this CFW, one i am aware there is another thread on the Katalyst^2 CFW but as many know that thread is hardly anything to look at or even work your way around to getting to download the actual CFW. Also i must arise the issue that many CFW threads online for this CFW says that a Katalyst^2.1 is in production, this is FALSE. Do not get me wrong, i am not the author of this CFW, i am simple just posting this. Credits: All credits to this firmware go to the rightful creators/ modders : shadowninty, deathgoddg, anshmiester78900, iwalkwithshadow, adhir_g2007, srgudhka & FRIENDS OF THESE PEOPLE. Flashing Firmware?: Are you confused about flashing your phone or simply can not find the right place to look for a good tutorial. In that case please check the links below ( these links are used on many CFW threads across the internet, it is reliable if you read carefully). I cannot be responsible for any possible damage that is inflicted onto your phone, you choose to do it at your risk! I am not saying it will brick your phone (meaning it will not turn on or fails to turn/boot up properly), though every time you flash your phone incorrectly, e.g. using the wrong files, you have chance of bricking your phone. TUTORIALS: SIMPLIFIED FLASHING FOR BEGINNER'S FLASHING METHOD MANUAL FLASH METHOD ALL THESE METHODS TAKES YOU TO FORUM.DAILYMOBILE.NET, PLEASE READ THE TUTORIALS THERE ( TUTORIALS ARE ON THE LINKS ABOVE WHICH DIRECTS YOU TO A BLAZE ULTIMATE CFW THREAD) KATALYST^2 SCREENSHOTS OFFICIAL CREATOR/MAKER : ishandigipunk MAX.

Unlike other CFWs, in Katalyst^2 you get 2 different Boot animations & sounds Just select your boot animation(s) & sound(s). Place them in E:Boot (automatically created by the FW). Rename them as- First boot animation file - startup.gif First boot sound file - startup.mp3 Second boot animation file - startup 2.gif Second boot sound file - startup 2.mp3 Homescreens Katalyst is the most flexible CFW in terms of Homescreens. You get to choose your own homescreens yourself (Not only just OraTsu like other CFWs, but also Orange Tornado & Vodafone HS) There are 2 variants of the FW. One is the 8HS variant (No flash HS to avoid bugs) & the other one is the 9 HS variant (With flash HS) for those who can live with the Flash HS bugs. These homescreens are provided with the FW- Contacts Bar Basic Full page Navigation bar Shortcuts bar Here are some links for HS threads (Orange Tornado & Vodafone). Choose whichever you like. Collection of OraTsu homescreens Collection of Vodafone homescreens by ravish_919 In the 9HS variant, you get samsung widget HS (Flash HS) without the samsung bottom bar.
