    Notification bar is invisible. I am very much worried about it. Also I can't see who is calling me. Just its ringing. Please help me to fix this. Send your answers to

    • Re-flash the ROM

      • Karthickscse

        Even after reflash also,same problem. Reflashed 3-4 times. Now again i roll back to 2.3 OS. Could u explain me in detail?

        • The reason why you are not able to install the ROM is that you did not flash an ICS kernel. My advise is: Find an ICS kernel that gives you root + CWM. Boot into recovery. If you don't know the button combination, use the command "adb reboot recovery". If you don't know how to use ADB commands, read this&nbsp ; So now when you have an ICS kernel and CWM, go ahead and flash the ROM. I also assume that you have unlocked your phone's bootloader. To roll back to 2.3 you will have to flash the firmware using FlashTool. Hope that helps!

        I will explain you what i did: (I was using android 2.3 OS)

        1. 2.3 Os is rooted, Busy box also i installed.
         2. CWM5 is also installed.
         3. I flashed the Kernel file named: kCernel-CM90-v03.ftf
         4. Then somehow i went to Recovery mode i installed the ROM and Color fix.
        5. Then it booted successfully after 5mins.

        Notification bar is invisible and Also I can't see who is calling me. Just its ringing. 

        So t thought some pblm in ROM installation. then again 1 went to CWM recovery mode, same pblm. No notification bar.

        So i completed wiped all and again did the same thing. Yet no notification bar.

        Again I rolled back to 2.3 os and again started from 1st step. Atleast the 1st time i was able to see the REMICS-S3 Custom Rom but after that i cant install the ROM itself. It just entered into a infinite loop after showing kCernel Icon followed by Sony ericsson Logo. It got stuck with sony ericsson logo itself.

        Whole night i spent for this but ended in vain.

        Help me. Give step by step procedure in detail. How to go to CWM mode after flashing is my 1st query ? and How to get notification Bar is my 2nd query?
