Welcome to SLIM ROMS+ for X8
Feel the performance and speed!

The Slim Roms+ for X8 was inspired by tchaari and A_U, so I made it for X8, too.
This was first made for X10 Mini and made it for X8 by sgt.meow's request :)
I don't own X8, so please be sure to tell me how it goes.
The same kind of project is already in progress in Galaxy Mini, Galaxy Ace, X8 etc...
TO BE SURE, I simply removed useless apps, fonts, ringtones that bloat our device. Anyway you can simply download their duplicates from Play Store.
This will save a lot of space in the system, ultimately improving the performance upto some extent.
Try it and you will see :)
Keep up the latest news and information of my ROMs at my OFFICIAL WEBSITE

What makes Slim Roms+ good? Let's find it out![/B]


1. Our phone has very less RAM to run ICS or JB in fully optimised manner. So these ROM's slightly fulfil that requirement. As the apps in these ROM's occupy very less RAM of around, 20 to 30 MB only !

2. Due to less RAM consumption, phone tends to be more responsive, smooth and faster !

3. Overall performance increases roughly around, 5 times !

4. If you are a benchmark believer, then AnTuTu scores were also slightly higher compared to the original ROM's

5. These lite ROM's along with any script like Adrenaline Engine, can boost your performance slightly higher.

6. These ROM's can be used as a daily driver, thanks to nAa and all of his team members!!

7. Slim ROM's have slightly higher battery backup compared to the original ROM's. For me atleast, i.e; with minimal usage the phone lasts around =TESTING

8. So use these ROM's and decide what is best for you.

9. There's nothing great about these ROM's. BUT, their SIZE speaks for them !


10. Going into details, I simply removed useless apps, fonts, ringtones that bloat our device. Anyway you can simply download their duplicates from Play Store. This will save a lot of space in the system, ultimately improving the performance upto some extent

11. All the rightful credits are in the second page.

12. All the downloads and download instructions are in the bottom.

13. I have removed bloatware in to the maximum extent possible, but still if you feel there exists such an app which is useless, inform me, I will remove it

14. Finally, I ensure there was no warez used to create these ROM's

15. On a side note I removed all the boot-animations to conserve space. ICS & JB have their own in-built boot-splash. While in CM7 there is no such facility, the screen will be blank, so don't worry you did not brick your phone

Quote from X8 thread:

Wtf u have permissions for slim all rom? (Like Miui)

And "slim" significte that we can only call and send sms? Lol Its up to the developers, they can give permissions or they can keep their work to themselves with no further modifications... once they have have published it to public, its understood that its free to use and customize it anyway, unless they specially mention it in big bold letters sayin "i will not allow anyone tamper my work".

So I AM NOT STEALING ANYONE'S BLOODY DAMN ROM. This is open-source world, u need to be careful with words.

and my idea is not to make only calls and sms.... some of u got it totally wrong.

u can install the applications that i removed from ROM's from play store... what's the point in slowing down the phone [though lag is insignificant], which already has such less ram.. ?if we had at least 512 Mb RAM, I wouldn't care to touch any ROM, least "slim" it...
So u can install the apps that i deleted, in the partition or sd card or whatever.... this saves a lot of space in system, which MAY help the heavy application/game run slightly smoother bcoz of availability of memory..



I really thank all developers here.

nAa and all team members gets ALL credits, making MiniCM10 and nAa JB kernel.
krarvind the original creator of Slim Roms
tchaari for the original idea
Team Slim for their logo
And, I thank all members here for contribution.
If I forgot you please tell me.

Thank you

4/1/2013 12:01:51 am

dear arik.
there is problem with using WIFI in this Rom.
according to nAa kernel producer, Every developer who want to develop roms by using this kernel must be take wifi package in CM!
now we will stay like you to solve this problem.

5/15/2013 01:26:13 am

I hope that it will be a new release of Slim+ soon..that supports the new kernel..I think that it will be the best Rom ever!
I'm looking forward for your news!
Please do not give up this project just because our phone is already old..:D

5/30/2013 09:08:54 pm

by the way i was wondering..
is it possible to have a jelly bean 4.2 flavor such as system icons or desktop clock with the next release?

6/12/2013 02:58:47 am

You.. are... THE MAN. Excellent work. A ROM very smooth. However, I can't move apps to SD. Also, the space to install apps is a little low. Anything else, excellent.

6/22/2013 11:51:26 pm

Hi I used your JB slim rom. It was quite fast in all the way. But sometimes my phone doesn't respond when it locked it stood blank. So what should I do to solve that problem. But I liked your rom very much. Sorry for my bad English.
