If you are willing to have Ice Cream Sandwich UI on Samsung Galaxy Y then Creed ROM is the one best Custom ROM available at the moment with smooth and fast functionality. Creed ROM is a custom Gingerbread ROM that is built with ICS UI. It is not really the ICS OS, it just has the interface. It is extremely smooth in terms of performance and gives you lots of additional benefit over existing Gingerbread OS. The added advantage that you get on the same is Soft Root, Message application, Cool ICS theme, optimized TouchWiz, bloatwere detected, status bar and boot animation. Along with this OS is extremely light in performance far more better than the existing original Gingerbread.
To install the same, you will need to download few files but before that, there are some requirements you need to go through. They are as follows:
Now before going ahead lets check out something. This are the pre-requirements part which help you to make your device ready for installing Creed ROM so that you do not face any error at the time of installation. There are relatively few things to take care:
- Backup all important data of your mobile phone. You can use Titanium Backup Pro for the same.
- Check that your mobile is rooted or not. If yes then you can skip this step or if not then you will need to root your Galaxy Y. To root you will need to install ClockWorkRecovery Mod. You can find the complete rooting process here HOW TO ROOT GALAXY Y S5360
- But if you are unsure whether your devices is rooted or not then download a root checker application from Google Play. That will tell you.

- Download Creed ROM V2.5 zip file and keep in somewhere on your desktop.
- Disable all security applications, firewall from your pc for temporary period.
