    Hi! I’ve got a question.
    There is no official ClockworkMod Recovery for i9003. When I tried to flash the recovery, the application tried to confirm i was using an I9000 phone.

    How did you get to install CWM? I also tried to install a I9003-port I found on xda via Odin but had no luck 🙁

    Thanks Pradeep for the update which I’ve applied, but wi-fi not working. Also the Medscape app can’t load up – issues with ‘ad blocker’ denying internet access. Can’t connect to Samsung Kies on pc.
    Thanks once again for your superb work

    All ROMs released has WiFi Issue. Still EHNDROIX ICS based Firmware is best without WiFi compaired to all latest ROMs.

    Thank you very much for this ROM. I downloaded it and it works like a charm. No Wifi/Battery issues. All real smooth. You don’t need to update ddkp3 again, just flash it when you have remics. Cheers!
