Slim 6 v2.1 Marshmallow Rom For MT6582 Devices


Slim M for MT6582 is an aftermarket ROM made by the best in the class devs who prefer simplicity in their work. Hence, the name Slim. SlimROM for MT6582 is based on Google AOSP and it tries to keep it as stock as possible without much features which normal users don’t want to use. Thus, creating a powerful ROM which packs a punch of performance, battery life and simplicity. Definitely recommended for for people who don’t want much features from their ROM but just want simplicity and performance. You can use layers in this ROM as all AOSP 6.0.1 ROMs support layers but layers manager is not added by default, you can download “Layers Manager” app from play store in order to use layers. This ROM is compiled from source by Tirth Patel for Micromax A311 (MT6592 Device).

Preparation Steps

  • Do not use this post for any other different Android devices.
  • For the ‘how-to’ guide to be completed successfully you will need to have a rooted device and a custom ROM has to be installed on it.
  • The installed custom Recovery has to be TWRP Recovery. No other different Custom Recovery works with the Slim 6 Rom Android 6.0.x installation.
  • Make sure that the installed TWRP build is the latest one, so that it will support the new Android 6.0.x custom ROM installations.
  • In the ‘how-to’ part of this post you can find two extra preparation steps: the NANDROID Backup and the Factory Reset ones.
  • The NANDROID Backup creates a full restore point for your device, one that you can use in case the new custom ROM doesn’t work with your phone.
  • The Factory Reset process wipes clean the system partition, but it won’t delete any data files from the internal storage.
  • Factory Resetting the device means that the old custom ROM will be removed completely for the new Slim 6 Rom Android 6.0.x Custom ROM to boot successfully.
  • In case you have to save any data from installed applications, then you should use the Helium app.
  • Use the tutorial only if you are an advanced user. We cannot be blamed in case you brick the phone nor in case you lose any data in the process.
  • Read the entire tutorial first and make sure that you won’t be skipping any steps.
  • Check the battery charge level of your device and make sure that it is over 50%, as it will prevent the phone from switching off during installation.
  • Now that you know all of the above you can continue to the next part of this post.
