This will bring your phone to android 4.4.4 (kitkat)
A bit dissapointing at first. I bought it in dec 2012 for 267 euro. Too expensive for only a 4" handy. But its exchang integraiton , calendar allowed me to share my private agenda with the one in the office ! The 3G+ is nice, ok now we have 4G but at time of release having 3G+ (H/H+) is essential. Samsung at those times didn't provide updates for andoid OS beyond the version you had, and only limitted in time. Something they were forced to adopt in the new models (not in S3 though) as competition permitted it. So I needed to reset to factory default to regain speed. Its only single cor 1Ghz Cortex and ony has 750MB (net 632MB). So you simply can't run/install many programs, basically use it as is. The battery of 1500mAh is in the very low end. I discovered only at the release of pokemon go that you could root it and run it with a custom rom (Cyanogen mod 11 RC3)
Now my phone revived and it runs on average in the 300mb used range ! Combine with All in one toolbox I can even reduce its foorprint at boot time. I can even play to some extend Pokemon Go (all versions) as the custom rom had put in place Kitkat 4.4.4.
I bought a new battery , TPU case and carkit for it, I will use for my car for navigation (and give the Mio to my wife). I love it, as its my first smartphone, and it runs so smoothly since the Cyanogen mod 11 (RC3) that I even prefer it over my Samsung J3 2016 from my work

B... moreHere is the video and link to all you need to boost your old Mobile (till about on avg usage you have 200 to 300mb free of a total of 650mb).

Believe me if you install the custom build of kitkat, see on the globe, you will see that therafter your mobile is really a charm and runs perfectly. Its really the OS installed , the apps on it, the updates that ruin your mobile. Even if you reset to factory defaults you already regain your speed. So its nt really the device (which is a 1Ghz Single core though) but what is stuffed on your OS that is "rubbish"
samsung doos very bad phone ... because always hung and time waste call time .....very hungrry many time and through away this phone.
