New 5230 Katalyst

Recommended Posts

Usage Instructions

Use my ROFS3 & UDA with the original ROFS2 (Rename them as your original ROFS3 & UDA)

No need to hard-reset your phone after flashing like other CFWs. Just use your phone after flashing normally

Flash your phone with K^2 & see the speed yourself, it's the fastest firmware till now

If you're a n00b & don't know how to flash, here's a Flashing Tutorial for you.

Don't forget to see how much free RAM i got after experimenting ( added in the screenshots).


Katalyst^2 changelog


List of modifications

Boot Modifications

Startup of useless applications disabled which makes the CFW boot faster than before

Now get the freedom to choose your own Bootscreen(s). Not just that, unlike other CFWs, in Katalyst^2 you get 2 different Boot animations & sounds

Just select your boot animation(s) & sound(s). Place them in E:\Boot\ (automatically created by the FW). Rename them as-


First boot animation file - startup.gif

First boot sound file - startup.mp3

Second boot animation file - startup 2.gif

Second boot sound file - startup 2.mp3



Katalyst is the most flexible CFW in terms of Homescreens. You get to choose your own homescreens yourself (Not only just OraTsu like other CFWs, but also Orange Tornado & Vodafone HS)

There are 2 variants of the FW. One is the 8HS variant (No flash HS to avoid bugs) & the other one is the 9 HS variant (With flash HS)

These homescreens are provided with the FW-

Contacts Bar


Full page

Navigation bar

Shortcuts bar

In the 9HS variant, you get samsung widget HS (Flash HS) without the samsung bottom bar. You can manually add/remove it anytime you want by simply placing this samsungtoolbar.mif in E:\resource\apps

Here are some links for HS threads. Choose whichever you like.
