Many thanks! Working like a charm! Only thing i miss in 2.3.4, is the "old tv" power off sequence, when turning off device.

Hi,

which languages does the Generic Nordic firmware include? Can i use this without any limitations in german language?
I have a german Ray with t-mobile branding, can i get rid of the branding by flashing this rom? And do i get OTA updates after flashing this?

Thanks for info...

1 The Generic firmware has all the languages of the other firmwares (as far as I can tell).
2 It will remove the branding of your device if you flash this rom.
3 I'm not sure about OTA updates though.

Hope this helps

My Ray is on 2.3.3 with unlocked bootloader + rooted and works fine

I flashed this rom with flashTool, had to do that two times. After first flash wlan and usb does not work.
Then I try to root with 2.3.3 insecure kernel boot.img via fastboot.
Found out that it only works with "fastboot -i 0x0fce flash boot boot.img" (if I use "fastboot flash boot boot.img" I can't turn on my Ray, it stays black)?!
Then SuperOneClick ROOT an fastboot "fastboot flash boot kernel.sin" (2.3.4 kernel.sin from this 2.3.4 rom extracted).
After reboot superuser says su.bin is old, but can't update it because device is not rooted?

Has someone else this problem, waht can I do?
An other strange thing is that after a phonereboot the "uefa app" installs new, i deleted it.
I haven't whiped my userdata at flashing, maybe thats the problem?
