Please include a guide to return to stock.
In order to claim warranty, one needs to return to stock ROM / recovery.

This is my first non-samsung device, so I am not familiar with how to do this for this device.

Please include a guide on how to get the phone back to 'everything-stock' in case phone has to be returned for repair during warranty period.

Thank You !

You can always restore your CWM backup to return back to your previous setup and if you want to unroot, open framaroot app and select unroot, and i will post the stock recovery later

How to Set / Unset Contacts as favourites ?
Hi,

I recently bought the A120.

I am unable to find a way to mark (or unmark) contacts as favourites ?

My GO contact widget identifies my favourite contacts (set from my earlier phone), but there is no marking or selection for favourite contacts in the contacts list ?

So is there a way to set a contact as 'favourite' ?

Open the Contact app.
Slide to left.
U will find Favourite option.

Sorry,
But there is no option marked 'Favourites'.
Even in your screenshot it is not seen.
What you have shown is 'groups'.
Thanks.
