  13. Thanks for leaving the very detailed procedure. I followed the instructions and it worked perfectly on a Samsung Galaxy Fit GT-S5670L.
    Now I was trying to find the way to boot this device when connecting to wall charger. Almost all other devices require to either manipulate the /system/bin/playlpm or /system/bin/lpm , but I have been unable to find any one of those files, neither others mentioned on different blogs.
    Does anyone know what file manages the charging battery loop on this device?
