[How To] Install Nemesis One HD (Android 4.2) on Galaxy Y !

by

Ever wished to install Android 4.2  on your low budget and low end smart phone Galaxy Y ? Ok, Forget about Android 4.2 , lets talk about going beyond Gingerbread. I am terribly sure that you must have thought about it. But our imagination or wondering come to an end knowing that Galaxy Y does not possess the ability to have any Android version higher than that of Gingerbread.

So, the Question arises, How come I managed to get Android 4.2 , to be precise its Android 4.2.2 on my Galaxy Y GT-S5360. Well, Actually its not Android 4.2.2 but a JellyBean themed Custom ROM and Kernel. It is a modified Rom and kernel of GingerBread only. But who does not want to have shiny and aspiring look of JellyBean in their Low end budget phone.

With superb themes, revamped UI, a brand new Launcher, Android 4.2 status bar and the fastest kernel out there, it’s simply what you ever wanted.  The Developers have named it as Nemesis One HD. Lets have a look over it first.

So you now know about its feature and looks. You must be getting restless to have your hands on over this. Follow the Steps written Below to install it properly else you may run into problems. I , in no way, will be held responsible if you Brick your phone but in case you do that chances of which are very rare, you may ask about it in the comments or you may restore your phone back to Stock ROM by flashing your phone with the Odin.

Things you need before doing anything with your Phone :

Step 1 : Install Stock ROM

If you are using Stock Rom then you may skip this Step else Flash any firmware(2.3.6) on your phone via odin. (P.S This step is not necessary but it is prefferred to be on Stock Rom before doing any experiment . For your information guys, I was not on Stock ROM. I was using JellyBlast v3 and I just followed the steps without installing STOCK ROM)

Step 2 : Shut Down

After installing the Stock ROM, wait for media Scanning to get completed and then shut down your phone.

Step 3 : Stock Recovery Mode

Press volume up + home + lock button altogether and wait for stock recovery option to appear. When it appears , touch screen option will not work and for navigation purposes you need to use vol up and vol down key. For selecting the option, home button have to be used.

Step 4 : ClockWorkMod by Madteam

From the recovery option, Click on install updates from SDCard and select select cwm by madteam.

Step 5 : Wipe cache and data

Now that you are in cwm, wipe data, cache and dalvik cache (u can find dalvik cache in advenced option)

Step 6 : Important and Must to do Step

Go to mounts and storage and mount everything. When I Was trying to install this nemesis on my Galaxy Y, I skipped this Step. This caused my phone not to work properly. After doing everything, my phone was supposed to run and work perfectly but since I had skipped this step, My phone would only show Boot screen and nothing else. So I had to do the Steps again.

Yes, I got my phone working perfectly in 2nd time. My first time proved to be Fail :( .

Step 7 : Installation

Go to install zip from sd card >>> chose zip from sd card >>> select nemesis.one.hd.fastedition.zip .

Step 8 : Aroma Installer >> Install Stock Kernel

When you will select the nemesis file from SD card , aroma installer will be executed where touch is enabled. After accepting the agreement, you will get some flashing options. You need firstly to flash stock kernel . (P.S – do not tick reboot after installation)

Step 9 : Mount System

After installation, you have to press back button of Galaxy Y and again go to mount and storage option . Here, Click on mount System.

Step 10 : Aroma Installer >> Install Nemesis Kernel

Again go to install updates from SD Card and select your nemesis HD.Zip file , again accept agreements and click next for every window you get. Choose Install nemesis kernel option this time which is the third option (P.s – do not tick the reboot checkbox).

Step 11 : Mount System

After installation, you have to press back button of Galaxy Y and again go to mount and storage option . Here, Click on mount System.

Step 12 : Aroma Installer >> Install Nemesis ROM

Now install updates from SD Card and select your nemesis HD.Zip file , again accept agreements and click next for every window you get.  Choose Install nemesis ROM option this time which is the second one (P.s – do not tick the reboot checkbox).

Step 13 : Reboot and Wait and Wait and then Enjoy ! :)

After installing the Rom, Reboot it by first pressing back button and then selecting Reboot phone. Since this is the first time your phone is booting with new kernel and ROM (Modified Gingerbread), it will take hell lot of time. SO, Do no get panicked. The phone may show black screen at the booting period and may take upto 10 minutes for booting and working perfectly.

If you have done everything rightly as I have written, You will get your Jellybean themed and much improved phone. But if by any chance, your phone do not starts perfectly , then you can follow the steps again. People have said that by installing Nemesis ROM first and then Kernel , their phone have worked while otherwise they had problems.

I did what I have written over there in Steps but if by any chance you get into problem, follow the steps again but this time interchange Steps 10 and 12 i.e Follow Step 12 first and then follow Step 10 . Rest steps will remain the same.

Here are some of the photos of my phone.
