Known Issues for 5.0
  • Touch controls might not work in AROMA Installer.
  • As with stock ICS, phone/contacts may take a while to start for the first time after boot.
  • If you didn't do a full wipe when coming from 4.1.B.0.431, you might have problems deleting bloatware.

Troubleshooting
  • Flash the corresponding modules from the kernel you use (unless "modules included" is written) to make sure WiFi works properly.
  • If touch doesn't work in AROMA Installer, you can use hardware keys to navigate (like CWM).

Installation
  1. Copy update zip to SD card.
  2. Flash a suitable baseband using FlashTool.
  3. Flash one of the listed kernels or any compatible ones.
  4. Boot into ClockworkMod Recovery.

  6. Follow on-screen instructions.
  7. Reboot.

That's kernel related, nothing to do with ROM.

Probably not because you need to flash the new kernel using fastboot (which is only available on unlocked bootloaders).

To others: Please read the two main posts before asking.
