  1. is there any way we can increase internal storage
    even when we move apps to sd card but some internal memory is still consumed by the apps

  2. I have 2 problems. The capacity of internal memory and whatsapp not works, i said not recognize the telephone.

    Any solution?

  3. After following the above steps i can use android 4.0.4 however my phone network is not showing up i am unable to call or sms as the network is showing greyed out
    When i click on mobile networks and then click on search networks getting error
    “Error while searching for networks” and when i click on select automatically getting error message “unable to connect this network at this time. Please try again later “

      1. Thank you the quick reply.. will wait for your updates…. Thanks again for all your hard work… really appreciated.

  4. The bootfiles doesn’t seem to work. All I get is an orange screen.
    I have bada 2.0 S8500XPKG7 and the bootfiles are for S8500XXKL5.

  5. Hi, i’ve already flashed my phone couple of months ago using this framework GT-S8500_S8500XXKL6_S8500OXAKL6 to bada 2.0, will this be compatible if i flash my phone to ics? thanks.
