Finally after 6 months i have Android smartphone Samsung Galaxy V SM-G313HZ, I brace myself to install a custom ROM by myself :v. Because before i hesitate to do it 'cause i don't have my own PC, what if something happen and there is no Computer / PC at that moment? But because i very want to change the display / theme and maybe it will get some performance increase, with some prepared backup and a little read from many guides, Alhamdulillah it was success with smooth hehehe :).
Moreover Samsung Galaxy V SM-G313HZ is classified to low end smartphone device, so the Custom ROM for it is not many. Allright check it out my ever first custom ROM installation, Zentouch. Maybe this custom ROM name come from ZENfone and TOUCHwiz, Samsung ROM (Touchwiz) with some Zenfone taste (maybe something like that :-/ ).
After i change to this ROM, i feel my device is a little smoother either with gaming (maybe because the bloatware is removed and the system app is zipaligned). Even this ROM had come to the final version, it is unfortunately there still some bugs when i try it.
- Custom recovery installed
- Backup as needed

!!! Highly recommended to install it from fresh stock ROM !!!
Example using custom recovery CWM:
- Reboot to recovery mode.
- Do "Wipe cache partition".
- Go to "Advance" -> "Wipe dalvik cache", after done go back.
- Choose "Install Zip" -> "choose zip from sdcard", find where you put the archive file of Zentouch ROM and choose it -> "Yes" -> Wait untill installation process done -> " Go back".
- Choose "Advance" -> "Wipe dalvik cache"
- Reboot smartphone, wait patiently for the apps optimizing.
Few bugs you MAYBE experience:
Q: Google Play Service and com.process.googlegaps always "stopped"?
A: Delete the Google Play Service system app (you can freeze it first to make it easier). Download the newest version of Google Play Service App from another website and install it manually.
Q: ASUS File Manager force close when try to extract something?
A: That file manager is ported from Zenfone 5, it is "ported", so it will not be 100% perfect like the original
Q: Asus Launcher force close?
A: Pull down the status bar and go to "Settings" by tap the setting shortcut icon, in Settings go to "Application Manager", slide to the left untill you are in "All Applications", find Asus launcher app, do a "delete data" and "delete memory" / cache.
Q: White text on white background on some little part of Settings?
A: Not a big problem :)
