6 Awesome Custom Roms for Samsung Galaxy Y S5360

Published on March 21st, 2012

Tired of the same old looking theme of your Samsung Galaxy Y S5360? Are you looking for Custom Roms that will make your Samsung Galaxy Y look new? Here are 6 awesome custom roms for Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 that I have collected.


Please do note that installing or trying out these Custom Roms may damage or brick your Samsung Galaxy Y. I strongly advice that before you try out these custom roms, you MUST BACKUP your data first. Not only just your data, but if possible create a backup ROM of your phone’s current state. Read and follow instructions carefully. I learned this the hard way, as I was not able to backup my ROM before trying out a ROM. One more thing, I only tried the Creed Custom Rom on my Samsung Galaxy Y. I have not tried the other custom roms yet.

And, you also need your phone to be rooted. For instructions on how to root your Samsung Galaxy Y see -> How to Root and Unroot Samsung Galaxy Y (Young GT-S5360)

    You told that you are not able to backup your original gingerbread Rom?
    That’s the reason?
    In creed thread you told that how to backup our original Rom.,then what happen to you?
    Or we are not able to backup our original Rom?
    If we are able to backup?
    Then tell me how to backup.

    • whatswithjeff

      What I meant was, I immediately tried the Creed Custom Rom without making a backup of my current Gingerbread Rom. When I replaced the official Rom of my SGSY to Creed Custom rom, all data was wiped out. I then realized that I should have created a backup rom before trying out Creed Custom Rom.

      You can create a backup rom from clockworkmod recovery menu

  • Shahidnaze

    Try Creeds Fusion v3.0 and v3.1

    • jaylence

      recently rooted my SGY and had been experimenting with several custom rom.
      Here are the roms that i’ve tried,
      Creeds Fusion v3.0 and 3.2 were great roms except that it has some bugs on
      3X4 keyboard.
      v3.2 hangs at locked mode when connected via usb. Also my phone keeps on rebooting when connected thru a charger.
      ChobitDigitalis is also one great rom and works just fine. It’s just that it has no option
      for 3X4 keyboard, I hate to use qwerty keyboard on SGY…:-)
      As for now, I’m currently using the Repencis v3.0. Works great on my SGY.
      So far, no bugs found yet… hope this helps..

    • rjay.

      every rom uses its battery, but some apps helps you sve your battery life… try installin MT toolbox. hope i solved your problem…

      oh and one more thing, if you want to maximize your battery life. try to be bestfriends with your task killer… background programs that you have not exited will continue consume your battery mon.

  • Doz

    I’m looking custom ROM for Galaxy S5300. Are these ROMs can be ported to S5300?

  • as 4 me …..creeds rom 3.5 is d best at all

    • whatswithjeff

      Creed is the more popular one. But do hope Galaxy Y will have an official ICS update now that Jelly Bean is out.

      • Lol

        It will not. SGY does not meet the requirements. Even the newest high tech phones can’t handle ICS, let alone JB.

        • lee_sin

          actually it will. samsung is making ics os for galaxy y, it will be modified so galaxy y can handle it 🙂

          • hamza

            there is an cm9 (ics) rom for galaxy y on xda forums but sounds not working but should be happy that developers have done it…..

          • jeff

            I’m running my galaxy y with an ICS custom ROM. so far it’s working fine. I’ll update this post at the same time create a post for the room I have been using. I’ll try to put a video to and some screenshots.

    • jeff

      Hi Nash, not all custom roms are working perfectly. There are things that doesn’t work when you use custom roms.
      Try other roms instead. I’m not really using ROMs anymore. I find the official roms better + launchers.

  • ayaorei

    m using jellyblast v3.0.2 n it works great..

    • jeff

      Are all functions working perfectly? No errors or something?

    • chirag

      bro i have been using this rom n here are the problems i came across…
      1. there are serious connectivity issues in google play store
      2. the connectivity ceases to work in the background
      3. apps do not get downloaded or updated. errors are detected.
      4. lags a lot
      5. apps automatically seem to dissapear in the vertical app drawer mode, though they are still installed
      6. the keyboard lags a lot. it types after ive already finished typing the sentence. kinda annoying.
      7. hangs in multi tasking.
      8. call screen appears 3 seconds after the phone starts ringing.
      9. jelly bean search force closes every time u reboot.
      brought it back to my stock rom. seems like a relief.

      • that’s why i stopped using ROMs, and just stick with the original looks or sometimes use a launcher.

    my samsung galaxy y stopped working due to nexus please help me

    • what do you mean due to nexus? What did you do?
      Can you still turn it on or not? If you can, perhaps it was only a soft brick
      You can fix it by installing the original ROM again.
