    I see thanks now I just need to learn to root my phone...
    Install drivers for your phone.
    Enable USB debugging in settings.
    Run superoneclick from the link I posted a short while ago.

    Will have to see if my dad's old windows laptop can still work. He got the ICS update on his Sensation without any resets and it's lagging horribly.
    Ugh. I've not heard much good about the Sensation updates so far!

    Not yet used it, and won't have a proper go until the weekend when I'm off, but the Nexus is a delightful thing to behold.

    Plugging your phone into your computer might do it automatically.

    Otherwise try googling "<your phone> drivers"...

    Yeah they didn't really think that the S2 would be great for the GTA when it is but hey they got better things to do (GTA 5)
    Lets hope so worst thing is you probably won't get a refund since it'll take 15 minutes to download the extra conten and start playing the game. I found bugs when I progressed deep into the game, suffice to say I'm saddened they haven't sorted it out.
    MC3 is great :awesome:
    ahh did you have to pay a £1.50 bank charge on top of what you paid for the app + VAT? i heard a lot of uk debit cardholders getting charged this when purchasing an app from abroad, kinda putting me off buying it

    MW3 not compatible with my phone, along with many other hd games :sad:

    The problem is the price. Why not just get a Samsung Galaxy S2 for that? Seems a rip-off to me.
    Dude are you serious??

    I payed for this LAST year. A SGS2 was going for a total of £600+ and those were the only cheap deals I could find!!!

    A Desire S last year was on average going for £400+ on contract.

    Remember, I payed £240ish altogether. And with that I got a FREE PHONE, 300mins, 1000 texts, 1gb internet...

    That is a good deal. Where can you pick up a mid-high end phone (at the time) for £240 with a tariff???

    And remember, this deal is only for 12 months! No need troubles of having such a ling unbearable 2 year contract...

    This deal was featured on hotukdeals... it wouldnt be posted there and get 900 degrees hot If it was a 'rip off'!

    Please tell me you are joking!!

    How much are YOU paying altogether over the contract course?

    I don't know what deal you were talking about and can't be bothered to go back posts and see. But my SGS2 cost 17 pound per month + 70 quid upfront (effectively just under £20 per month) for 24 months. 500 mins 5000 texts and 1GB internet. This was in october. But yeah if you really need 12 months then all that's useless.

    I mean that it's bad for now considering you can get it cheaper, but you might as well get a new phone or a Galaxy S2 for that price.

    True, I could probabley get a SGS2 for around that price now, but remember I bought this phone nearly ONE YEAR ago, at the time the Desire S was still considered a top end phone, whereas now it has dropped price alot and will probably be a discontinued model by next month.

    But yeah, as the time this was a good deal...

    I know, I'm simply saying that the deal I recommended was better due to the low price and the phone's mid-range status in the spectrum of smartphones; i.e. I think that the earlier poster should go for the deal I told them about simply because it's cheaper.

    No more IceColdSandwich . What a great ROM. Everything is working bar the video camera so screw waiting for the DHD official update. LC has promised another update which is good news. I'm upgrading in November which seems far away but I'll probably just leave this ROM on until then.
