This has already been posted, and you are over complicating it, just download mike's zip and install from sd card, wipe data your done.

Also mike does not permit reuploads, support the developer, he gets a little money for clicking his upload from ad.fly.

After following this thread I'm stuck at LG startup logo. What should do?
Repeating process doesn't help. Any ideas?

Loaded IceCram Swift by miroslav, and it's all the same.
By the way system partition is 234mb.
Something is wrong cause got this problem with every newer rom, 2.3<=.

And how much time i need to wait for Icecream to load after reboot?
5-10-15 mins?

Hi All,

I have installed 9.0.0-preRC-GT540-MikeGspinski and everything works fine..
But I have noticed that when we make or receive a call, we will be unable to hear unless we switch on the speaker button.
Any idea on this ?

Hi all,

Can anyone please post the steps in detail, with all the updated links for download. Because I have tried to install 2.3.7 with downloading the files from the link provided. After completing the installation procedure, my phone was showing "Download MOD".
So can anyone post this in detail.

Thanks
Bharath
