Ahh! I love my ICS rom and my symphony w25. I am a perfectionist, so I took my time to study and gone throw lots of trials and errors to finalize the ICS rom. Thanks to all those Brilliant senior developers from XDA for their numerous helps and tips. I will start by providing some screenshot of the ICS rom.
Beautiful isn’t it? Now let’s start. Just make sure you read and follow everything I say from now. Upgrading process is divided in 3 steps actually:
- Updating Baseband
- Flashing AP(Factory) ROM
- Flashing Finalized NANDROID ROM.
YOU MUST FOLLOW ALL STEPS ONE BY ONE, DO NOT DO ANYTHING YOU DON’T KNOW, IF YOU ARE A TOTAL NEWBIE, THIS IS NOT FOR YOU KIDDO. DON’T BLAIM ME FOR YOUR MISTAKES.

Updating Baseband :
This process is pretty nasty. I made a successful Update after trying a number of times and fails, after that I installed WINDOWS XP SP3 and successfully Updated Baseband. So I would recommend you guys to Start this Upgrading Process with a Freshly Installed Windows XP. I will try to give you as much as possible visual guide.
*It is not mandatory to install Android SDK and Java Runtime.
- Install “jdk-7-windows-i586.exe”
- Install “installer_r20.0.3-windows.exe” , make sure you have selected options red marked in this photo when Android SDK download files.
- After download complete, Go to “F:\sym_ics\SYMICS4\(AP+BP)_ICS_S01\(AP+BP)_ICS_S0 1\ICS_S01” This folder.
- Extract “NPRG7627A.zip” by right clicking it 7-zip > Extract Here
- Copy “NPRG7627A.hex” to “591357_8376_WCDMA_V0005” folder.
- Switch off your phone, remove battery, SIM cards, SD card.
- Place battery on your phone, Hold POWER BUTTON+VOLUME DOWN BUTTON together, you will see “QPST Entry Download”.

For you the driver location will be “F:\sym_ics\SYMICS4\S01_Drivers\drivers\Driver\HK1 1-VB717-27\HK11-VB717-27_1.0.56\Win32\x86\free”, Click Ok, and press Next. Driver will be installed. Close it. Go to device manager and you will see something like this :
- In my case i got COM3, you may have diffrent port number. Now go to “F:\sym_ics\SYMICS4\S01_flash_tools\fast_boot” and Open “fastboot126.96.36.199.exe”. You will see something like this :
- Click on “BP Browse” select folder “F:\sym_ics\SYMICS4\(AP+BP)_ICS_S01\(AP+BP)_ICS_S0 1\ICS_S01\591357_8376_WCDMA_V0005″, Put the port number on “BP Port”, take a deep breath and press Download, download should start if everthing is allright, after download compleate “fastboot188.8.131.52.exe” will close by itself. and you need to pull your phone bettery to shut it down and disconnect the phone form your pc.
AP Upload :
- Place your phone battery on the phone, press POWER BUTTON + VOLUME UP and wait untill you see a GREEN display on your phone.
- Connect you phone and you will see a new Device is found named Android, now install the drivers by following procedure like prevoiusly shown and use the folder “F:\sym_ics\SYMICS4\S01_Drivers\drivers\Driver\adb _driver” for drivers.

- Now press “OK” and wait for first “Waiting Decices…” to compleate and then disconnect the phone, pull your battery and start your phone. ICS should start with creepy forign language.
Flashing Finalized Stable NANDROID ROM :
Default firmware rom do not come with CWM installed as recovery, so we need to port it now. This is a pretty simple procedure.
