    Secondly is it neccessary to go back to MIUI ROM from ICS RC1 and then to RC2 or we can directly install RC2 from RC1.

    hi neal,

    just want to ask,
    do i still have to update from miui to ICS 4.0.3 RC1 Firmware before updating to ICS 4.0.3 RC2.1 Firmware

    or can i just update directly from miui to ICS 4.0.3 RC2.1 Firmware???

    thanks =]

    Hi,

    Updated successfully. However not able to connect to Computer using USB cable even though USB debugging is enabled. Is there any option/process to be followed as connectivity to Computer thru USB is a necessary to copy any files..

    Thanks in advance for your advice.

    • Reply Pradeep Neela January 4, 2012 at 12:32 am

      check with the usb cable or try restarting the device!

    Hi, is this rom operators branded, or will it work correctly on EU Phone (XX___)?
    If so, how can I change the baseband to obtain the signal?
    Is the network type settings bug now resolved?

    So, can it be flashed directly from XXJVS?

    • Reply Pradeep Neela January 4, 2012 at 3:10 pm

      YES IT CAN BE FLASHED BUT YOU NEED TO UPDATE FROM MIUI, PLEASE FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS!

  73. Reply Najpod January 3, 2012 at 7:51 pm

    Dear Androidadvices.com,

    Before I do anything I have a few questions:

    On the ISC website it says one still needs to instal \Super user for ISC’ before installing the Kernel, is this necessary or is my XXJVR (rooted) + MIUI enough to apply the fix?

    Also, the ROM found on the ISC website is a 2.11, is the Kernel already incorporated in this one?

    Thanks!

    hi neal,

    Hi Pradeep,

    When I tried to download I could see link for RC2.11 and RC2. Could you please confirm which one we need to download.

    Kernel ICS-RC2.1-i9000-Glitch.zip
    Main ROM ICS_4.0.3_r1-RC2.11-i9000.zip

    Please also confirm whether we need to run both the above mentioned files in the recovery mode? You have mentioned to choose only one file ICS RC 2.1 file to install..

    Appreciate if you could on this.. thanks

    • Reply Pradeep Neela January 5, 2012 at 9:46 am

      you need to first install the main rom and then you need to install the kernel. so download both the files!
      Kernel ICS-RC2.1-i9000-Glitch.zip
      Main ROM ICS_4.0.3_r1-RC2.11-i9000.zip
