It is risky to upgrade, the ROM file name is ThL.W7.130126.ICS.V13.HD.CN.COM.8P32_MT6577 where CN stands for Chinese, the current ROM version in settings-->about clearly says EN in the name. which is english. If you are english user, this one may turn your phone into chinese language. dont know if it can be changed or not.

its not risky to update at all but be warned that its only english and chinese. all the other languages are removed from the CN version. the EN version can be downloaded from needrom, bjut its the old version. i didnt try this version, but there was another older version and that one did not solve my gps or wifi issues.... i'd have to back up first before trying new version.... and in my case, gps is hardware fault.

Hey guys, i tried the new firmware. Despite the name cn, the firmware is entirely english. All you need to do is to change the language in settings back to eng. It surely feels faster and on antutu getting 6.2k score rather than 5k plus. Gps locks way faster now and compass working again! Just so u know.

your red line is on the antenna's empty spot already, if you cut on the black line the antenna becomes super tiny?

The flashing process is included in chinese with the chinese rom, you'll have to translate it to understand it...

i have a google translated version on my desktop but im not near it right now...
