Created a "dload" folder, then copy the UPDATE.APP from the "Middle" file into it.


Has anyone managed/tried to upgrade to B927 AND then downgrade to B888, for instance?

Fantastic, thanks. I got the 2 rar files, the middle file needs 'login' and am reluctant. I would like an easy upgrade path from 885


I already supplied my Google Drive download link for the Middle File... I've done the register/login, and uploaded publicly to my Drive!

Ah man Ok every time I hold down volume -/+ and power button my phone just boots up normally.. arrg looks like I'll have to install through "Storage/Software Upgrade"

One thing I've noticed with B927 is that with B926 in this location I was getting "HSDPA:11" which I believe was HSPA, with B927 I seem to have "HSDPA:9".

Now this could just be atmospherics not giving me as good service as before, or it could be B927 doesn't support HSUPA? Can anyone with more knowledge on the matter than me comment on this?

So it is, I have HSDPA 9 also and had 11 on B926.

I don't have a microSD card reader, so this is what I'm wondering:

After installing the small UPDATE.APP (the middle one), will I still be able to connect to my computer through CWM to replace the middle file with the proper UPDATE.APP?

Why is everyone getting update failed ? You have all came from B926 same as me right ?

Yep, I'm on B296 and it fails, tried it 3 times (internal and sdcard). Deciding now wether to wait for a flashable zip or try the middle update thing.

Estive a ler os posts no androidpt e parece que está tudo cheio de medo de avançar... LOL

Just to report that i am running this rom from about 10am today and it is working without a hiccup. It is super stable. The problems you may found are apps that you install from google play not compatible with ics.

You can flash the "middle" update without problems and then update to B927.

"Estive a ler os posts no androidpt e parece que está tudo cheio de medo de avançar... LOL"
Translates like this:
"I've been reading the posts concerning this B927 on a Portuguese Android forum and it seems that everyone's afraid to step foward... LOL"

To be honest rsrocha i'm just trying to figure out if:
  • There's an easy downgrade to B888 (from B888 to Portuguese Vodafone B884 it's straight forward) in case we need warranty to be activated.
  • How to i get "potterunlock" or the ics equivalent "2D unlock" (and how to get it) to work on B927
Thanks everyone!

As like any other Rom Upgrade.. Yes... either one by one or through Titanium BackUp.
