The power of custom ROMs ranges from updating your mobile phone with the latest software to mimicking the look and feel of another Android device. Such power is demonstrated in a custom ROM that makes the Samsung Galaxy Ace look like it’s a Samsung Galaxy S2.
XDA Developers member spacecaker gets the credit for cooking up this ROM, which is famously known as s>G<s II REVOLVED. This custom ROM is based on Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread (build XWKS2/XWKS9) and brings the Android skin of Samsung Galaxy S2 to your mobile device.
The custom ROM also features the following:Galaxy S2 Status Bar TouchWiz 4 style launcher Improved Power menu Battery gauge [...]
The Samsung Galaxy Ace is one of Samsung’s popular mid-range and budget-friendly Android phones.

The Samsung Galaxy Ace, however, only offers Android 2.2 Froyo, which is not as sweet as the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
XDA Developers member Rushabh25 has developed an alternative way to load up Android 4.0 ICS on your Galaxy Ace via the MIUI 4 ROM. The ROM is called MIUY4 and has a pretty long list of features, the most notable of which are the following:MIUI launcher and icons MIUI boot animation MIUI default [...]

Samsung Galaxy S2 users sure are very excited these days because their device is finally going to get its official fair share of Ice Cream Sandwich sometime in the first quarter of this year.
However, some just can’t wait any longer to get a feel of Ice Cream Sandwich running on their device, which is why custom ICS ROMs for the Galaxy S2 are in demand.
In the past few days, we’ve already seen a number of ICS leaks for the Galaxy S2, but there’s a recent leak to be intrigued about: XXLPB. Despite still being in alpha development, the ROM is reportedly stable enough for daily use. While the official ICS upgrade for Galaxy S2 users is still [...]

With Ice Cream Sandwich storming Android devices left and right, it was only fair that the Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9000B gets its own taste. Unfortunately, this is not yet the official release of Ice Cream Sandwich from Samsung and there is no official date for when to expect one. So, until then, this release will have to tide us over.
