Disclaimer : Neither we nor the person who posted the method on XDA will be responsible for what you do to your device. Please read the instructions carefully before doing anything.

  • Ensure your device is running Stock or Stock based ROMs (Get them here)
  • Root your device (Steps listed here)
  • Install any root explorer like Root Explorer or ES File Explorer
  • Download the file from here
  • Extract and copy the content to SD card on your device
