    I think this is the case, but is don’t add the file extension to the windows users who hide the file extension (given this is done automatically for known file extensions now)? I am guessing this because the “install zip from sd card” but want to make sure before I brick this thing lol.

    This guide needs alot of correction it needs to be titled PH98IMG.zip to work and to get to the boot loader mode use volume down and the power button at the same time. Those are the biggest problems I had. It went fairly smooth after that

    If i do the upgrade and do not root my phone, will i still be able to get ICS OTA if its higher than the current version i set up

    So if we do not know what we are doing? Do not install or do the update?
