Will this work for any region? or just India?

Or in other words..

I flashed generic .42 GB before for root then i OTA to .62 GB, and now my SI can get ICS. Do I still need to flash this to get ICS of my region?

Thanks in advance, and sorry I'm new to all this Slightly smiling Face

Nabeel when I clicked on the GB rom link for Ray, it says "This file is either removed due to copyright claim or is deleted by the uploader." Slightly frowning Face
