    Hi Sathish,

    An excellent article on rooting GT-S7562. Thanks for compiling and sharing it all of us. I have this old GT-S7562 and wanted to upgrade it so I could use HERE maps, thereby converting it to dedicated Navigation device for my car. Unfortunately HERE maps is not supported on 4.0.4 and without SIM connectivity I may have issues while fetching POI’s and other features on my map. Please guide what best can be done this phone so that it works as a good navigation device.

    Thanks in advance,

  46. Sathish says:
  47. I think if u want to destroy ur phone, then ur free to do this type of activity becuse it is not totly satisfied us

  48. Hi Sathish,
    Will I be able to revert back to the old settings after this installation? After the rollback will the device function normally with all the default features working properly. Please clarify the issue.

  49. Sathish says:

    Yes, you can. Take a nandroid backup before installing this ROM and you can use that backup for restoring your device to the previous state.
