    I can’t get this package properly installed on my Samsung Galaxy S I9000, i downloaded it, transferred it to my phone, installed it from CWM, but the installation is done in like 2 seconds and when I reboot nothing is installed. I’m running on a 4.0.4 Custom ROM.

    I followed all the steps above but it doesn’t seem to take it.
    Could someone give me a alternative way or maybe i did something wrong?
