Thanks a million. I have followed this link and it seems VERY USEFUL! I am now downloading from the site to go and upgrade my GT-15500 from v2.1 to v2.2. I advise other people to visit it and find beautiful softwares with full flashing explanations.
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.
