A How to on flashing ICS(Defy Plus Builds)
1:Head over to Stable Recovery from boot menu
2:Wipe Data (Nandroid Backup Before Doing this [optional])
3:Install Zip from SD
4:Select ur ICS(DefyPlus) zip
6:Flash CM9 Kernel
7:Flash Gapps zip(On first page of ICS DeV thread)
8:Clear Cache and Dalvik Cache
Installed also the battery fix for red lense.
So now when i power up i cant pass the bootloader screen.
I made an nandroid backup before messing up.
The message in bootloader says:
OK to Program
Thanks for any help
If you bought a defy+ don't need to flash a new kernel already had gingerbread you only need to flash different kernel if you testing a froyo rom, as I can tell if this is for you wife I recommend install first cm7 just cuz cm9 still got some bugs and if she is not like us that like to test, try and give feedback I don't think she will like cm9 the camera got a lot of bugs that need to be fix before any cm9 can be user friendly for a regular user, don't say don't try but I will not give my wife a phone whitout a perfect camera or she will make my life imposible
