Another custom ROM version was released yesterday namely VeloxROM that comes with Android 4.1.2, and can be installed to Galaxy W I8150.
Aside bringing the Jelly Bean 4.1.2, the owner of the Galaxy W will also be enjoying a load of features which are pre-installed within the ROM. This ROM is interesting because the developers behind it use the newest CM10 sources to built it, reading the name CM10 is undoubtedly convince us that this ROM deserves to be tried.
