To install, save the file to the internal memory as update.img and remove the usb cable; it will prompt you to update.

Everything installed fine, but when I went to wireless & networks I get an error reading "

The application Settings (process com.android.settings) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."

It asks for force close.

Any suggestions?

Thank you!

Tom
