    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

    Try DOCOMO care and ask those people to give you apn settings :).

    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 !!!!
