Update Samsung Galaxy Mini S5570 to Android 4.0 ICS

Samsung Galaxy Mini S5570 was one of my favourite budget Android phones. It had pretty low-end features like a 600 MHz processor, 280 MB RAM and a small display screen and had natively Android 2.3 on it and is still being sold at an affordable price in various countries. Well, now we can even get Android 4.0 ICS on Samsung Galaxy Mini.

We have already covered Android 4.0 tutorials for Galaxy Ace, Galaxy Gio and Galaxy Fit. Samsung has no plans to release an official ICS update to Galaxy Mini and have kind of dropped support for the phone as well with no more updates. This is where CM9 comes in and saves the day with a custom CM9 ICS ROM for Galaxy Mini.
