  6. Hi Neal,

    I have purchased the new I9000 and by ur guided instructions i upgraded it to 2.3.5 FW which have to many force error & decreased battery life.

    But i want something better /good on my SGS, What about BlockBuster 5.5 or any other rom / FW like, SG2 FW, also it should have good pre -installed app,widgets, eye candy UI, and should have very good battery life.

    Can i upgrade blockbuster 5.5 directly on SGS FW 2.3.5 or i have to go back to 2.3.4 first, I have already rooted my SGS by ur instructions successfully.

    Thanx in Adv.

    HAKIM
