    I flashed this ROM, and everything OK.
    But once i rebooted the phone, it doesn’t boot, and also it doesn’t enter recovery mode when i press volume up button.
    Is ther a way to force recovery mode from PC.?
    Or i should flash the stock ROM from PC?

    Ciao Mario,

    Grazie it seems interesting, how about the same with a Mac computer?

      I can’t see the video
      how to see it? is it only visible on Windows?
      For rooting, just use Framaroot app; very efficient and simple.
