  12. hey,i have just done according to you but it says that u cannot paste here due to some permission problem. help me to remove this problem

  13. hi can u please provide me link for stock rom as i updated my w8 without backup of my original android 2.1
    now i want to restore the original

  14. If u guys are not able to paste in the desired folder using root explorer....its probably only because of permissions that are applied to that particular folder. You can see a small button in your root explorer as "Remount as R/W" you need to click that nd change ur mode to R/W to be able to modify and edit files.

  16. @unknown just remove ur sd card than start it

  17. Hey my phone stucks in "Sony Ericsson" while rebooting.. I've installed GingerDX after following your steps... Someone help me

  18. apparently all this doesnt work for the Ei16. Pressing back button doesnt boot into recovery. W8 really sucks! There is no update beyond 2.1 for it, yet, SE is pushing it with a fake ad saying that there will be a free update for it. That too it costs a lot. SE is fraud!
