Re: {GUIDE} Install ICS ( Ice Cream Sandwich) as well as root Arc S , Ray and Neo V

Thanks for your reply Auni!

Well I'm still trying my other sim card with no problems so far. But I only had it on for a couple of hours so it's to soon to say if the problem relied on the card itself. The strange thing is that It seems that I'm the only one with this problem so far. I've searched most foruns and didn't find anyone else with my problem.

Well let's wait to see the results of my experiment and hope it's just the card otherwise this ICS update is going to dash unless they use different basebands for specific countrys and carriers.

Thanks for your feedback Auni! :smileygrin:

First of All you are welcome Slightly smiling Face

No you are not the only one. Many users in XDA also [XDA is the recognized forum for Android developers] faced this issue.

I would say that wait and see if it gets better with time.

I Flashed ICS twice, the problem remains same. And WiFi is better in GB for me.

Sorry Nabeel! Didn't realised that that word was considered swearing! My apologies! :smileyblush:

@ Auni (sorry don't know how to tag! Dizzy Face ) - Well I've searched on XDA and I didn't find anything. In fact if you search "ICS invalid SIM card" on google the post that comes on the top is my post on XDA! :smileygrin:

Let's hope everything get's sorted! Slightly smiling Face

Hi Nabeel, my neo v is currently rooted with locked bl. Would following your procedure work?
