Hope Nokia could also do such updates, instead of just working on camera. I don't shoot all the time.

Even if you turn off sync or any little bit of settings that includes going online you still end up consuming data. Like if you play games or any app even (even if its an off line game) you still end up consuming data because of the adds, also whenever your phone connected to any type of internet you are always connected to google server. Thats why short cuts and easy toggles are everywhere in android , just turn off mobile data and thats the only solution.

Hi and good day. My name is adekunle oseni, and am from nigeria. i love android but there is one problem i have with it and that is switching on and off of the mobile network. what i mean is that whenever a user wants to browse on an android phone ,the user would have to switch on the mobile network before being able to browse and if the users phone is not running any internet connected app the user would have to go back again to switch off the mobile network if not the mobile network would automatically connect itself at anytime without any internet connected app being opened which would then drain all data plan or airtime on the users phone. I think this is bad and the android makers should work on this because take for example on symbian platform,once a symbian user set a phone's packet data to always available, the packet data would never automatically connect itself without any internet connected app being opened which makes users of the platform feel assured that their data plan or airtime wont be drained unneccesarily. I hope you do get my point . Please work on making android phones mobile network be switched to always available and when needed, and while switched to always available the mobile network would never connect automatically while there is no internet connected app running. Thank you

I think 4.1.2 with "JKay Deluxe 14.95 framework" is far better than 4.2.2!

I only did that cause i was lazy to read all comments on sammobile, and there were already an explanation but i tried..
about what u said regarding another's rom... well, it could work, only LTE and 2Gb of Ram would be out of question, thats why i tried it. didnt work, well get back to another rom. Android gives that freedom;)

"I tried it on i9305 and it doesn't work cause lacks radio frequency for LTE. In i9300 i heard reports of some bugs, but like it is on this post, it's only a test version.

It works fine but with some bugs but i advise you to try it."

Flash away and be carefull with your warranty.
