There are quite a lot of custom ROMs for Samsung Galaxy Y but the most famous custom ROMs Cyanogenmod and MIUI have not yet been compiled. However these custom ROMs perform really well on Galaxy Y. In this post we will see yet another custom ROM for Samsung Galaxy Y which is the ICS Aura ROM. Please note that this is not an Ice Cream Sandwich ROM but a ROM which has ICS icons and a few other ICS tweaks to make your phone similar to running Ice Cream Sandwich.

Steps to Install

You must have ClockworkMod Recovery Installed for this.

  1. Download the ROM zip file from here.
  2. Connect your phone to the PC via USB Cable. Make sure you have USB Debugging turned ON.
  3. Copy the zip file to the root of your SD card and not within any folder.

    I have read many reference site’s procedure for installation of custom ROM on my galaxy y after my 1st rooting of phone yesterday & finally preferred to go with this site. At first I tried to download creeds ROM but it shows failure error while installing. Then i tried ICS auro v1 & it got installed but after applying Reboot i faced multiple & continuos force closes so i again went in recovery mode and given factory reset & wipe cache data & then reboot, since then my phone was unable to start. It got stuck on samsung logo again & again. I installed ICS many times then but my phone didnt started. Then i flashed my phone officially with samsung ROM from a local shop. Now it is working. Again i have rooted it. But this time give me some proper hint about installation of ICS ROM if it faces force close problem or something else..
    Thanks in advance.

    • First, enable USB Debugging, remove all security apps. When you are in recovery mode, make a nandroid backup so that you can restore it if something wrong happens. After that, just wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache partition and wipe dalvik cache. Flash the ROM after this and again wipe everything and then reboot! Hope this helps!

  • tjf926

    i installed the rom successfuly but i cant seem to use the keypad, i need to put log in details and i cant open the keypad. help

    • When it boots u first, just skip the step to enter login details. After that you will be able to use the keyboard and then you can add your Google account.

  • curra

    i was able to follow steps 1 to 5. I have a question for step 6 wherein, “When you are in recovery mode, select “Install zip from SD card”>”Choose zip from SD card”.” install zip is not part of the recovery mode option.


    • It might be something else like “flash zip from SD card”. Install zip is a general term!
