  1. ive already got CWM and flashed a rom and i am currunetly using that, do i still need to do steps one and two

  2. No, It clearly states you may skip those Steps if you already have got CWM recovery and stock GB. So, just proceed with remaining steps. :)

  3. I have cwm and flashed cyanogenmod so I don't have stock gb rom do I. I can still skip. One and two though can't I as I have already flashed from a stock rom to begin with yeah? Really don't want a brick lol thanks

  4. there is a problem....the notification tones included in the Ics stock too low too be heard....other tines while placing on the notification folder of SD card are also low(as it was also on gb)....Plz suggest a solution for fix this bug...??

  5. Well, I guess that the problem with Gingerbread sound. Try settings the notification volume to max in Sound settings. Even if that is not enough for you then, you should try other roms. CyanogenMod has many options to boost volume so it just might suit your needs.

  6. does camera and other stuffs works properly?

  7. Yes, this rom has got only the look of ICS. Rest is all GB 2.3.6 so, everything works perfect.
