  11. Mas punya saya pake ICS yang versi 4.1.2 nah saya kan upgrade langsung,yang saya bingung kenapa semua backup data saya yang sudah saya simpan ga bisa di restore lagi? Mohon penjelasan nya .

    1. mohon maaf sebelumnya ICS versinya 4.0.4 kalo yg 4.1.2 itu yang jelly bean. nah masalah backup, ferry naruhnya dimana? kalau di internal sd kemungkinan backupnya hilang karna diformat saat diinstall. kalau backupnya di versi GB tidak akan bisa digunakan di versi ICS. begitu juga kalau backupnya di ICS tidak bisa digunakan di JB. Mohon diperjelas menceritakan kesulitannya. trims.

  12. Mas Adi, saya ud install ICS versi Final Releasenya...tapi ga bs download dr market mas untuk balikin APPBAK dan dua apliasi lainnya. Hanya downloading saja...setelah agak lama "APPBAK could not be downloaded due to an error (403). Smua aplikasi di market begitu Mas. Saya ud coba ambil ROM yg kernel 3.0.88 masi sama juga, Mohon pencerahannya dan terima kasih.

    1. 1. apa waktu sebelum install CM9 Finalnya sudah dilakukan format data, cache, dan dalvik?
      2. apakah gapps yang didownload sudah untuk yang android 4.0.4 (ICS)? coba download ulang gapps nya disini pilih yang versi 4.0.3-4.
      3. apakah setelah install CM9 Final dapat melakukan patch ke aplikasi APPBAK dengan Lucky Patcher? kalau pernah, maka setelah agan menguninstall APPBAK tanpa merestore patch tersebut terlebih dahulu di Lucky Patcher, agan tidak akan bisa menginstall APPBAK lagi.
      4. coba install cm9 versi sebelumnya apakah masalahnya masih sama?

  13. mas bro mohon pencerahan, kalo abis flasrom ke cm 9 final release bermasalah ama wifinya gak bsa dan external sdnya gak kedetek gmn troubleshootnya mas. sekian terima kasih.

    1. 1. apakah sebelum install CM9 Final Release wifi ma external sdnya berfungsi dengan baik di ROM yang lain?
      2. Apakah sebelum install CM 9 Final Release agan sudah melakukan format data, cache, dan dalvik?
      3. coba install CM9 versi sebelumnya apakah masalahnya masih sama?

  14. Halo Mas Adi, link download CM9 Final Releasenya kok rusak ya? Apa Mas punya link mirrornya?

    1. Sebenarnya link CM 9 Finalnya gak rusak. Kalau ga bisa download mungkin browser yang dipakai ada masalah. coba pakai browser lain atau coba link ini
