Galaxy S GT I9000 – Steps to Install Super Stable Jellybean 4.1.1 Firmware

Galaxy S ICS New logoTime for some action for Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000 users as in the due course of this article we will be checking out on how you can install an all new version of Jellybean 4.1.1 firmware update which is rock stable and comes with no bugs what so ever. This firmware is built on the JRO03L Jellybean built and ropes in the latest Jellybean 4.1.1 RC12.1 firmware version.

Unfortunately, Samsung won’t be coming up with the official Jellybean 4.1 firmware update and this is the best ever Jellybean 4.1 firmware which almost looks like the Stock / Default firmware of Galaxy Nexus smartphone. In the last few articles we saw on some of the Jellybean 4.1.1 based firmwares but they weren’t that stable when compared with this one. You can revert back to the original / Stock firmware at any point of time, to o back you can follow the instructions mentioned below to roll back to XXJW4 firmware version. Let’s proceed to check out the screen captures on how this firmware looks like.

Update (16/10/2012): This new Jellybean 4.1.1 is based on the Final Version of Code Name build and is one of the super stable Jellybean builds.

  37. Hi,
    I’m currently running “Jellybean 4.1.1 RC12.1″. In OTA updater it shows there is a ROM update “JRO03R RC13 V3[OFFICIAL STOCK ROM](4.1.1)[29/09/2012]()version JRO03R_v3)”. But I cant continue the update due to a downloading error. Is there any solution to update the current version to latest..

  38. radio is not working !!!!!

  39. Dear Pradeep,

    Thanks for this. I’ve managed to update my i9000 to this ROM after some wiping and reinstallation.
    I noticed 2 things that I would like to change, I was hoping if you could help:
    1. The stock camera that comes with it isn’t really user friendly with minimal function. The old Gingerbread stock is better. I couldn’t find where/if I could set default to have pictures taken saved in the SD card. How can I change the camera app to a better one. Any recommendation?

    2. I notice the bluetooth connection isn’t very stable. After a while, it doesn’t turn on. Had to restart the phone to get it working again. Is there a bug that’s being worked out at the moment?

    Thanks again.

  40. AND PLZ TELL ME IS TEHRE ANY ROM WHICH DONT BLINK WITH POWER BUTTON…I HATE CUSTOM ROMS BECAUSE OF THAT PROBLEM

  49. Hi All

    I applied the MOST STABLE Jellybean update on my SGS I9000 – it runs so fast as never before and is really very stable.

    I did find that everything was shrunk to a very tiny size so I changed the DPI setting from 210 to 200 and saved using root explorer “\system\default.conf” file & reboot.

    After restart, phone is back to good size fonts and working magnificient so far…

    Good work guys

    Thanks and regards
    Niraj Kapadia

    • Hi All
      Sorry for the typo above – I changed the DPI setting from 210 to 240 – anything greater than 240 and you will end up with “Soft-bricking” your phone and it will remain stuck on the “X” screen and wont boot up to the home screen. I recovered from that using Android Explorer & phone in recovery.

      So do not experiment with randome DPI values for SGS-I9000 – the min and max values are 180 to 240.

      Regards,
      Niraj Kapadia

    Hi …
    Great firmware :) However, it seems to have changed my IMEI number which has resulted in periodic to permanent losses to my signal. Please can you suggest how I can return my IMEI to that that is prescribed on my phone behind my battery ?

  73. Awesome App ! Here’s my Pros and Cons about this Jelly Bean 4.1.1
    The best advantages I have seen:
    # Fastest ROM
    # Stunning Performance
    # User friendly and GUI is simple and awesome
    # Gmail, Facebook and other apps run faster than any other previous ROMs
    # Sound and display looks cool with various user options

    Disadvantages:
    ——————
    # GPS and Google maps not working
    # Facebook contacts and their numbers doesn’t get sync
    # Old Keyboard (no enter)
    # Battery drains very fast …

  74. Bro..just updated to this awesome JB rom. found out that facebook app (the latest one) and 3g watchdog app is not supported when i try to download them from Play store. Any fixes?

  75. WHICH IS BETTER W4 OR THIS ONE LATEST CUSTOM JB

  76. Hi could you please help :0

    I installed the OS and everything seems to be working perfectly except for the S Voice app but that okay. One issue is that it has changed my IMEI number and every so often my simcard is disabled and my signal is lost. I then have to reset my phone to fix this. Is there any way to restore my IMEI number to that that is shown on my device, behind my battery? Why would it have changed it when I installed this update? Thanks though, have loaded maaany OS versions and this truly is the best :)

  77. pradeep,
    Google now application doesn’t have offline voice data download option which is very much necessary for fast working of google now. would you like to solve this problem.

  78. got problem with the imei. how to fix that one?

  80. pradeep, internal storage for apps has decreased to 500 mb from 2 gb. how can it be increased because i m facing lot of trouble in installing new apps. it always show insufficient memory. please suggest a solution.

  81. I have problem. I did everythink but i forgot to wipe. Now i have bootloop even if i try to enter Recovery Mode. Help me please. What i have to do? Meybe downgrade to 2.3.6 and then again upgrade to 4.1.1 ? But how to make this?

  82. Hi Neil , I am not able to access my external memmory card. Is there any solution ?

  83. Does Viber work on this? Because we had this issue with the mic in the ICS mod.

  84. Hi Pradeep, great work on this one and I am highly interested in flashing with this rom, however, I would like to know if this is already rooted or will we have to wait for root instructions for this?

  85. Hello, i have a bit of a problem…my brothers phone is a gt-i9000 (galaxy s) and i can´t enter no ringtones and i´m getting the imei error message…can anyone give me a little help :) thanks

  86. After updating there is no valid IMEI Number on my Phone. What can I do?

  87. Pradip bhai. In semaphore i checked the fm module but i dont have the app in jellybean. how can i install the stock app of fm radio. without internet connection. PLs reply
    Thanks NItesh Sunka

  88. Nice rom but most of the apps are not compatible..

  89. Google map and some other apps are not compatible kindly post a fix otherwise best ROM a of now

    • I spent the whole day experimenting with this, I think I got it working by simply doing a factory reset and Wipes in Recovery mode the re-installing Rom from SD and rebooting WITHOUT installing the Gapps separetely, the rom comes with the proper Google play app version 3.5.16 which is fully functional and allows installation of all apps.

    • Many of my favorite apps cannot be installed. Google play gives ” Your device isn’t compatible with this version” . These apps were working perfectly with xxjvu. Will downloading the apk of these apps and installing be possible ? However i am not able to download them using apk downloader extension for chrome or apk leacher software for pc. May be because they ask for the device id to log on to google play and google does not allow the downloading , seeing that galaxy s is not compatible. An example of the app i am trying to download is Mobislenotes. Kindly help

      • Hi I was able to install an app using the apk file that i downloaded from 4shared.com. Google play had told that the app wont work in my device.
        You have to install ‘apk installer’ app from google play. Next, place the apk file of the app you want to install in a folder in internal memmory card.Open apk installer and navigate to the apk file and click install.
        So this is just an error which google play generates. However i am looking for a way to get the apk file from google play as this would more safe and you would get the latest version. If anyone knows please share….

        • Hi I used this method to download the apk from google play. I signed in with my friend’s device id and gmail account, into apk downloader extension in google chrome browser . After this you can download all the apk files of your favourite apps. Make sure that you enable “install apps from unknown sources ” option in your phone. It was already enabled in mine. Everything is working now including skype. This rom is terrific. Hats off to the developers.

  90. The best one yet and most functional, adds on Samusung apps.
    I have one remark though: Most of my apps in google play are not compatible with the firmware like Gmail,Fancy,etc
    Is there a work around for this?
