    If we have version 4.2.2 how we can update? We must return to version 2.3.5 and then root?. That version can not download because the link given is no longer valid. You tell us how we can do but not offer real link….
    Why you dont post all my question?????? you love only to be praised?????

    • Pradeep Neela

      August 28, 2013 at 8:46 pm
