    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.

  37. Anand Kapadia

    August 11, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    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 ?

    • zangao

      August 12, 2012 at 2:03 am

      Exactly the same here! Please help us.

    August 11, 2012 at 5:21 pm

    Jelly bean looks awesome..but this update slows down the phone drastically..did try increasing the ram to 302 but still no change in performance.. Have gone back to ics stable rom update which works brilliantly anf gives nearly 200 mb ram free..
