    Did someone tried this yet? How was it?

    • http://twitter.com/revomau5 Péter Lajos

      it’s amazing. it’s less laggy than 2.3

  • sagar

    did anyone tried this ?? is it the official jb ??
    is it applicable for all the countries??

    • arafat21

      It’s the official Jelly Bean firmware. Though it release in Russia but you can flash it in any country, only issue may occur is no carrier support. You can then flash a CSC that support your country or have to roll back in 2.3.6 Gingerbread to get carrier support.

        please help me

          What help you want @vineesh?

          • vineesh

            my dear……i download the zip file…but can’t extract zip file….help me dear………..

          • arafat21

            Download and install WinRar or WinZip or 7Zip.

  • cedric

    finally a android 4.2.1 update it works in the netherlands perfect

    • arafat21

      Thanks for your input. That surely encourage other to try it.

  • cedric

    do you need clockworkmod and can you do it with a s advance without root running android 2.3.6?

    • arafat21

      This don’t require root. All you have to do, download the firmware and then flash it via Odin the way we instructed in this page.

  • Sarah Bello

    It says incorrect parameter when I clicked the .tar file for the PDA HELP!

    • arafat21

      It’s really strange. That’s the standard way and people already updating their devices through this firmware. We hope you didn’t extracted the zip twice but only once.

  • Sarah Bello

    OK! I SUCCESSFULLY UPDRADED MY SGSA

    • arafat21

      Thanks for your input Sarah.

    • Girish

      how man, it is repeating the error , can u explain me the way

      • arafat21

        Actually, it strange. We don’t know how the lady solve it. Few possible reason – download zip file is corrupted and may required another download or you extracted the zip twice instead of once. You can try another thing, use different USB port, if you using a desktop computer then try port at back. Take the battery out for few seconds and re-insert it, now try the process again. See what happen. This is standard trouble shooting we know for Odin.

  • Dian Mushkov

  • Antonio Cordova

    why i need the pit archive? i have sgsa i9070 of 8gb…

    • arafat21

      If the firmware zip comes with pit file then you need to flash it but as reported by other successful flasher it don’t have it. Did you downloaded the zip. Pit is optional file and usually firmware don’t comes with it.

  • edi

    i’ve tried it, and messege on odin is fail,

    i follow all the step,

    • arafat21

      Few other also receive the same error but many successfully flashed it. Don’t really know why this happening. Hope, those who successfully flashed it, help you.

          • arafat21

            Sometime problem happen on OTA update. Specially if you device is rooted earlier. But, as you able to detect the firmware it should see the update automatically. Only Samsung guy can now answer this.

          Hi, This is Girish again my phone has showing binary counter 24
          is there any sggestion to reset to zero.

          • arafat21

            There is a paid app for that called Triangle Away: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.chainfire.triangleaway

          • Girish

            i tried with this but app required root mobile , i also done in jellybean but unfortunately there is message called uncompatible mobile

          • arafat21

            Ys! And for now, this is the only way to make it zero. As this is new firmware we are not sure the old root method will work on it or not. We are closing watching developer forum for this.

          • Girish

            Shall we go back to GB rom JB , it is very hanging prob and not functining properly reply as soon

          • arafat21

            Yes! You can just flash the GB firmware and perform full wipe from recovery.

      • edi

        how can i do it? is it “right click on odin’s icon and chose ‘run as administrator’ ” ? i’ve done it, and fail again T.T

        • arafat21

          Now this is strange! That was the solution as you can see in other comments. Don’t really know what going wrong for you. Maybe you can try a different USB port and disable the antivirus.

  • sagar

    how much time it will take ??

    • arafat21

      Flashing firmware usually take 15-20 minute. But it always depend on device data transfer speed. Try it to know it.

  • aakarshan

    Arafat21 I successfully installed it but when I start my phone I got error (Samsung setupwizard has stopped) pls help……

    • arafat21

      Please follow the last note on second page. You need to boot into recovery and then perform wipe. Remember this will delete data stored in internal memory. If you perform backup already then you don’t need to worry about it.

      • http://www.facebook.com/aakarshan2 Aakarshan Sharma

        Hey I already done that but again I got error (Samsung setupwizard has stopped) Plz Help

    • arafat21

      First of all make sure you have proper driver install and the next thing you should look for can Odin show any port after you added you phone. Odin can’t always recognize your device but if it show port info then you are ready to go for the adventure.

      It look like you need a CSC file. Don’t know your old firmware have CSC or not but here is the old firmware: http://www.hotfile.com/dl/153545342/80d5cce/I9070DXLD1_I9070OLBLD1_XME.zip.html If it contain CSC then flash only CSC file using above tutorial. Or you can flash whole to roll back to Android 2.3.6 GB.

    • arafat21

      Go to recovery and wipe data and see what happen. Remember wiping data will delete data if any from internal memory. You can revert back Jelly Bean to Gingerbread as long as you use official firmware.

  • http://www.teamdave.com/ teamdave™

    so is it worth updating it to jellybean?
    i cant decide to update or not… cos if the official uk version come out next week ill only have to install that one again to fix the network issues will i? or will it be longer than a week before it comes out?

    • arafat21

      It most likely going to roll out within two week we guess if we go with the trend. So, you can wait little bit for you country specific update.

  • Girish

  • Daven

    Hi,

    I have a Taiwan model, I9070. I also tried to flash 4.1.2 via ODIN (with old and latest version; v1.85, v3.04) but i could not succeed it. It shows an error on phone screen” custom PWR MGT !! ” in red characters. I have used several USB ports on my laptop and also ran ODIN as administrator but did not work :( Do you have any idea what could be the issue ?

    • arafat21

      Don’t know why this error occurred. Even when we search about this error don’t get any good information about it. You can take a risk. Backup your important data then perform a factory reset through recovery. Then try flashing this ROM. This could help.

          • arafat21

            Your phone isn’t recognize by Odin as there is no port details available. You can try installing KIES utility which installs driver for you if Windows 7 can’t by default. Once you get port, only then you can flash firmware.

      Backup your data and then do a factory reset or go to recovery and perform wipe.

  • krish

    we need to root before flashing official firmware???reply fast plz..

    • arafat21

      Installing official firmware don’t require root, even you will lose root if you flash any official firmware.

      • krish

        thanks….i have installed it and its running smooth
        but many features are missing….any idea if can get them ??

        • arafat21

          This is an official firmware and you will get what added. There is no way to get additional features other than what comes with it. However, if an existing feature not working properly then we will advise you to perform a wipe cache partition from recovery. However, you should backup your data first before doing so.

  • disqus_AKkOSVNZpq

    I have flashed my new Samsung galaxy S advance I9070 to android jelly bean 4.1.2 and couldn’t find the option of horizontal calibration any where in the phone. Only their is the option of gyroscope calibration in settings>motion>sensitivity settings>gyroscope calibration. How do I horizontal calibrate my phone has problems in auto rotation.

    • arafat21

      According to many gyroscope calibration have same functions now that’s why horizontal calibration no longer there in Jelly Bean.
