I would like to upgrade from ICS, but the mobile Internet, there is. How do I fix it? Because PC comp, are not found on Net!

Help please. Hungarian region

So far, existing applications will run it? The battery time will be improved via ICS?

thanks nabeel for a quick reply.

many users are happy with ics,  but in my case its complicated.

i liked the flow theme of my GB and its completely changed Slightly frowning Face

are you sure direct flashing thru flashtool with gingerbread files would'nt harm to fon?

The best possible way is to root and remove bloatware to free up phone memory and ram

100rabh791 and DM did the same and are quite happy .

If you wish to , then you must go ahead, its worth it Slightly smiling Face
