    This is working ok if you follow this inatructions from including network!!!!!
    mahmudk69.Those who come from any custom ROM may have network or some other problems after installing this JB update. I had also the network issue. Then I did a factory rest and wiped cache and through Odin updated GB XXJVU and rooted with the root package of XXJVU. After that again through Odin updated XXJW4 and rooted with its root package. Again did a factory reset and cache wipe and installed the Jellybean 4.1.1. My SGS GT-I9000 is working now now without any problem.

    Where have developers gone ? They should respond to comments. After rooted and deployed jelly bean, network is not seen. And also by re-installing gingerbread, phone is unable to even start. Its restarting infinitely. Now what to do ?
