Ok! Now choice is yours, you can download the main ZIP rom file and update or you can download the NAND backup and have a Preconfigured system. But before doing anything you need to prepare your SD card.
Preparing SD card :
I am giving you visual presentation of formatting your sd card via CWM. To do this, first you need to backup all your data from you sd card, I recommend SD card larger then 1GB. Backup your sd card data, put the sd card in your phone and boot your phone on CWM recovery. Then follow as visualized. Hey, 1st image is the screen when CWM openes, don’t press “reboot system now” follow from 2nd image.
Now you have prepared you sd card with an EXT3 partition of 256MB & a SWAP partition of 32MB and all other spaces are available for your files as FAT32 file system.
Installing main ICS rom Update
Now you have to copy downloaded file “SYMW25_ICS_V2_RAINWALKR.zip” to your sd card and boot your phone to CWM recovery mode. Then follow as visualized. Hey, 1st image is the screen when CWM openes, don’t press “reboot system now” follow from 2nd image.
After flashing new rom you will be booted into the new ICS experience, first time boot take a little more time. Now, you can dress up your system as you wanted. But make sure you have Installed app like “App2SD” or “Android assistant” to move your apps to your sd card and save precious ROM space. Enjoy.
Installing Preconfigured ICS updated ROM
*you don’t need to download “SYMW25_ICS_V2_RAINWALKR.zip” if you are going with this process.
Well, I have configured mostly everything in this preconfigured rom, lets have a look of its extra features :
- Advanced Task Killer configured to Kill unused apps and free up you ram in each 10 min.
- Default luncher replaced by Apex luncher, smooth and cool.
- New Live wallpaper added from Nexus, Phasebeam
- Home screen and widges placed.
- PRO apps installed
- Apps included
o Adobe Reader
o Advanced Task manager Pro
o Android Assistant
o Apex Launcher
o Barcode Scanner
o ES File manager
o Flashlight App
o Lucky Patcher
o MoboPlayer (Can play almost all kind of video)
o Office Suit
o Opera Mobile
o Pool Break Pro (Gamed)
o PowerAmp Full (Best Android Player)
o System Tuner Pro
o TitaniumBackup Pro
o UC Browser
o theChive (My most favorite, I know guys will love it too :P)
All these apps are moved to sd card, and you still have 55MB of free ROM after installing 23 apps :)
Now download all files of “SYMW25_ICS_V2_RAINWALKR NAND” and extract clicking on “clockworkmod.7z.001”. 001, 002, 003 are the same files part, so you don’t need to extract each one. after extacrting file, you should get a folder named “clockworkmod”, copy it to your sd card, and make sure to format the sd card by following instrustion told in this section “Preparing SD card :“. After formatting sd card, boot into CWM and follow as visualized:
Now, after rebooting the phone you should get you new Device as shown in Screenshots.
Enabling G-sensor :

If it don’t work then you have to find the way yourself, try by clearing all catches from CWM.
Enjoy, new Experience.
