(4) Run PC Suit and Connect the phone, select PC suit on phone popup. Pc will install automatically divers. Establish the connection between phone & PC in Usb mode.

C:\firmware file.kdz   <enter>   (note:- if you have .cab instead of .kdz then enter V10Y_00.cab here)
Firmware file [Example V10f_00.kdz]   <enter>

The Upgrading will start. wait for 10-20 mins and if lucky you will be done on the first go. But Sometimes though every thing correct, the communication with the phone can not be established. In such a case plug out the usb cable then plug in again, select pc suit on phone, wait few seconds till PC recognises drivers. Repeat the procedure few times.
Even then If its not working then plug out usb cable, install the usb and flash driver again, switch off phone and connect it to pc as performed earlier. switch on the phone and repeat as earlier.(see from "Step 2" above).

Good luck!

Be aware however that the account name you sign up with is not the name you will appear under in the game.
Learning skill shot skills is the most important part of playing Ahri.
The premise of the game is to control one of many champions and fight your way past hordes of spawning troops (called creep),
then advance past towers to destroy the enemy base.

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?
