    • It seems you made something wrong while updating. Restore original firmware using odin

  55. how can i says:

    I really love commentluv, it’s one of the best plugins that every blog should have (especially if it’s a new one). It really helps to get more comments on your blog and of course commenting on commentluv enabled blogs is a great way to get traffic and backlinks

  56. jon says:

    it’s not really an ics update. it’s just a heavily modded gingerbread rom that is made to look like ics. even the android version was changed to make it appear like it’s an ics version… be careful of doing this if you don’t know how to reflash your phone back to the original stock rom.

  57. wan says:
