This method is the full update way - it will wipe EVERYTHING but should not affect your unlock or IMEI.

You need a (2gb min) SD card formatted.

Download the file, 2nd link on THIS PAGE (you may have to sign up to download) onto your PC then unzip the 'dload' folder and its contents from the zip file to the SD card (root folder, not under another folder).

Edit: probably best to unzip all the zip file folders and contents to SD card just in case

Edit: Turn off fast boot in settings on phone - shouldn't matter but just in case.

Make sure phone is charged, SIM out, SD card in, hold down and keep held BOTH volume buttons whilst powering up - if all is well you should get ten minutes of messages and then a reboot. Be patient, 1st boot can take a long time.

If during powering up all you get is stuck on a blank pink screen it means you told it to update but it didn't find one, need to check the SD card is not corrupt and the dload folder containing the large file is there.

Some people have had an issue with this ROM to do with turning wifi on/off but only those that used CWM and flashed over other ROMS without erasing properly in between. The above update method over-writes the lot so no one has seen the issue with it done this way.

NOTE If you want to root it you will need a ICS unlocker now not one for the previous version!

Only customisation is a Velcom (Belarus' 2nd largest phone operator apparently!) splash screen on a cold boot, has Google apps and Play installed, after that install what you like.

Final note, the above should work even with a virtually bricked phone, useful if your messing about with CWM or Rooting and mess up so it won't boot.

See further post below if problems, including how to go back to stock Vodaphone Android 2.3.
