No OTA upgrade available in India. But Samsung service center provides the upgrade.

I tried updating the Firmware via Kies, however, there was some problem. It did extract the Firmware files however it never got installed in my phone.

However, as per theassassin47 advice I have updated my S advance to JB and its working fine. Its official and its not a rooting of device. Its very simple. Just following the steps and you will succeed in updating your phone to JB 4.1.2.

However, there are couple of options missing. Smart pause and Smart stay.

Thank you

Hi All,

The new JB update is gr8 barring a few issues
* The battery drain is a lot and unbearable, upto 30 % more battery usage even in idle mode
* there is a delay in opening basic windows like call logs messages and stuff
* phone restarts automatically even when u specifically select the shut down option
I've checked a few forums and i've tried backing up the phone and peforming a factory reset after the update but it still hasnt helped
Any help from anyone would be highly appreciated
