If you installed Arkas 0.4 than it has the short APN list.
Get your APN settings/internet settings from the internet provider.
Sorry for the trouble .
In Arkas 0.432 I updated the list so it includes most service providers of India and some other countries

Hey Karan can you recommend some SetCpu settings for optimum performance without having to sacrifice the battery backup(if improving isnt possible by anymeans)

There is a mention of T-Mobile US,Verizon and SprintPCS in the apn's but no one ever tested it so I cant say for sure if they actually support it .

thank you.. i got the callisto file..

1. i couldn't reboot into the recovery mode using the t+power method..
q+power works and boot into download mode.

2. can i use the factory reset option in the settings to wipe the memory..

3. is titanium backup is enough.

4. after installing the rom should i restore the apps with data or apps with sys data

1.)Not particularly necessary if you are using Arkas 0.4 -0.433
If you are attemting 0.5+ then issue reboot recovery command from the terminal

2.)Yes .Thats what is known as data/cache wipe

3.)It is enough

4.)Thats really your choice .

^^
There are many technicalities involved .
In short partially yes .
Problems you may encounter
BlueTooth problems in Arkas 0.4,0.5,0.533,0.564,0.6

Just a random hang -Arkas 0.6-ext2

Of course before you do anything :
Download super one click
Obtain shell root
switch off to airplane mode
and backup the entire phone !!!!

Some phones cant go to recovery with T+power .You will need to install a pre-rooted ROM for root privileges
