      It’s a risk, sure, but it installed perfectly for me. If you follow each step carefully and properly, you have nothing to fear. Let me just tell you, from what I can see after installing it, the risk is more than worth it.

      No network or no data (as in Internet)? If its only the Internet then contact your provider and ask for APN settings. If it’s the whole network, then I can’t help you but I don’t have any problem with the network myself.

  • abinav

    is it feasible to uninstall the system apps ?
    do the phone gets unstable after doing that ?

      Depends on what you install. Google the things and see what you can uninstall. You can uninstall things like email and social hub without any problems but there are some system apps that are needed for running the OS.

      1.) Download needed file
      and rename it to

      2.) Copy ZIP file ( to your SD-card

      3.) Turn off your phone

      4.) Switch ON your device in the
      recovery Mode (Hold Volume Up, Home Key, Power Button, together).
      *Note: You will find your phone in recovery
      mode with blue coloured UI. You cannot
      use touchscreen while your phone is in
      recovery mode.
      For making selections and movements, you have to make use of volume up/
      down keys and make the selection by
      pressing home key.
      5.) Select update from SD Card

      6.) You will see that the list of files will come from which you will have
      to select the file which is named as Press YES.

      7.) Wait a few minutes

      8.) choose reboot system now.

    • Abhijeet

      I think it’s not a ROM problem, as many have successfully installed this ROM on their device. If you’ve made a backup,
      factory reset and try again. Otherwise wait for the next
      update. Even you must check whether there is any problem with your Sim card or not..
