stock Jb is lil bit glitchy..
The bet way is to root the phone and change the kernel..cuz the stock kernel sucks..

Currently im using russian updated XXLQ4 stock JB and custom CoCore4.4 kernel and my s advance is working like galaxy S2 efficiency..
Everything working smooth and lag free for me since I switched to custom kernel.. its great..
U can go to xda forum for more info..

Just registered to share my experience as like many others i was also frustrated with gingerbread.

If somebody wants to upgrade then follow these steps.
Requirements:

Fully charged Galaxy S Advance phone (I9070) – Make sure your phone is fully charged or atleast >60% battery capacity. (This doesn’t work with I9070P)
USB Data Cable.
Laptop/Computer
Backup your android phone because after flashing this firmware, we need to factory reset our phone.
Risk: Sometimes things may go wrong, so proceed at your own risk..
download russian firmware XXLPZ from:
https://hotfile.com/dl/187848062/3d6ee0b/GT-I907­­0_SER_I9070XXLPY_I9070SERLPY_I9070XXLPY.zip­.html­

After this download ODIN form here
http://techotv.com/wp-content/...hotv.com.zip

Extract both the zip files with winrar.
Turn off your phone.
Now press volume down key+ home key + power button together simultaneously for few seconds until you get haptic feedback from your phone i.e. until your phone vibrates to enter download mode. Now press volume up key to confirm that you want to proceed ahead when asked to do so on the screen.
Launch ODIN program on your computer. Make sure Samsung Kies program is not running on your computer at that time. If it is, just close Kies.
Connect Galaxy S advance phone with usb data cable to your comuter.
In ODIN program, you’ll see a box colored with com number indicated. In the log section of ODIN program, it’ll display Added message. This indicates that your phone is successfully detected by ODIN program.
Click on PDA button and browse to the firmware extracted folder and select the firmware file…..I9070XXLPZ_I9070SERLPZ…. )
Hit on Start Button. You’ll see the download progress bar moving on your phone. Wait for sometime. Since this is major release, you might have to wait a little longer.
After flashing everything, ODIN will reboot your phone automatically and display PASS message in its box.
Done. When phone starts again, it’ll take time to start. It’ll display that Android is upgrading and optimizing apps.
You’ll be presented with Set-up wizard where you’ll have to enter certain details, select your language, enter your samsung account details, etc.
After completing everything, you’ll find that all your previous apps, messages, contacts are intact. Well, don’t be hopeful because you might face several problems like no network connectivity after flashing jelly bean firmware on Galaxy S Advance, or the UI screen very laggy, or excessive RAM usage, etc. To solve such issues and to experience speed Jellybean butter effect, you have to factory reset your phone. So, Switch Off your phone. Press Volume up key + Home button + power key together simultaneously to enter recovery mode. Use volume up/down key to navigate through the options and power key to select/execute a particular option. Select Wipe Cache here. Now select Factory Reset. Now Select Reboot. Galaxy S Advance will reboot in normal mode. After successful start, you’ll be again presented with Set-up wizard. Here, select English language first of all as the defaul will be russian. Now proceed as usual with other details.
Done! Now enjoy and experience JellyBean on Galaxy S Advance phone in any country. Do tell us what’s new in jellybean for galaxy s advance. We’ve found speed improvement, RAM addition (about 100mb more RAM), Zoom support in Camera, Pop up Play support, Smart Dial feature, Shortcuts on Lockscreen, Nature UX Touchwhiz UI, etc. Unfortunately, Smart Stay feature is not there.

Next process is to root the device, its simple
download the root pack from http://d-h.st/ook
place it in your SD card then switch off your phone.
Go into recovery mode by pressing volume up, home button together then power on button until android logo comes.
In recovery go to update from sd card using volume rocker and select with power on button, then select root.zip from sd card and then select with power button, your phone will root after completion of process, press reboot system. When your phone will start it will show you SU in apps that means your phone is rooted.

then download "seeder.apk" from 4shared install it.
Select on, then select start on boot and then select aggressive.

Enjoy your jellybean.

If any problem in any step dont hesitate to ask.

Regards
