Vikesh buddy,

can you add a section to describe how to flash the nordic ICS rom and make rootable with ardatdat kernel? I know many of us are facing the problem of correct foolproof way of flashing this super-heavy (on system rom partition) rom.
you can include the correct odin app to use (include the link to app), gb->ics or ics->ics migration, how to make it rooted (use a hack to delete some system apps and free up space for ardatdat kernel to kick-in superuser permissions !! etc etc.. ).
