About MoDaCo Custom ROMs (MCRs)
MoDaCo Custom ROMs are based on official ROMs - either shipping or leaked. A MCR release is designed to feel as far as possible like a stock ROM, with optimisations, tweaks and complimentary additions that enhance the user experience. The aim of a MCR is to be ultra reliable for use on an everyday device. MoDaCo Custom ROMs include online kitchens that allow the user to choose between stock ICS or Touchwiz style for most features on the device!
In order to use this ROM you must have ClockworkMod Recovery installed - this can be installed using CF-Root by ChainfireXDA.
The ROM is installed at your own risk. The ROM should be installed using ClockworkMod. A wipe is NOT required to use this ROM if you are coming from either stock, or a previous MCR release.
Features Include... (many optional via the Online Kitchen) - check kitchen defaults for what is in the prebake:
- Rebuilt, compressed and optimised with the MCR build system
- Based on the most recent UK release
- Trackball Alert support!
- All Google applications updated
- All third party applications updated
- Vanilla option using stock ICS components instead of Touchwiz components while retaining stability and core Samsung functionality
- Superuser application and su binary from ChainfireXDA (SuperSU) for SAFE root functionality
- Insecure boot image and secure boot image with adb root patched ADB

- Not odexed
- Alternative appstores (shortly!)
- Our own 'OdexMe' on-demand odex application (shortly!)
- init.d support on boot

Future Updates - READ THIS!
By providing this ROM I am not implying in any way that future updates will follow. Due to limits on my time and the fact that I have a large number of devices for short periods of time, it isn't possible for me to continue providing ROM updates indefinitely. Please do not donate / sign up on the assumption that future releases will be available (I don't want you to be disappointed!).
If you would like to show your appreciation for the ROM, please consider supporting MoDaCo by signing up for a MoDaCo subscription!
