Iv'e been reading the comments, and cmon people, its your fault if the phone wont boot, or you cant install your precious little game... It's the gamble that comes with flashing roms. It's happened to me twice now, and I'm not complaining.

Don't worry about regions... take care of versions, and avoid 5508 if you have 5500 or 5503... I am living in India and I upgraded with a europian firmware... and it's almost working fine...
