  3. 1)Back-up your important data from the phone,
    2)Then Do full wipe / factory reset.
    3)Try to flash again.
    That error may occurred if you had your device:
    - a very low phone's system memory
    - installed a unofficial ROM.

  14. How to change language of phone to English after installation and how to change APN settings ...

    ReplyDelete
  15. Changing language> navigate through settings> choose the locale/text icon and change it to your desired language.
    APN settings varies with your country local network providers. You may contact your local provider support team..

  19. Hi katherine,

    I have samsung galaxy R(GT-I9103).
    Does the ICS exists for my phone as well?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Reply@ HARISH Jungay
    Yes! Galaxy R is upgradable to ICS as well according from Samsung. We will just wait for the release date, probably will be coming if all Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note finishes their ICS updates all around the world.
