Wanted to let you all know that I have flashed JB XXLQ4 yesterday and so far so good..

1) Only strange thing I noticed is that, when I turn on the MASS USB storage mode, and copy files from my PC to phone, it takes FOREVER; however it's not the case if I connect it directly without turning on the USB mode.(still takes a lot of time unlike GB)..

2) No project Butter at all, the app drawer and the home screen transition are not as smooth as they were expected (may be with future updates they would).

3)Battery drains pretty quickly whle surfing/WIFI, even on 2G....however no battery drain when Flight Mode is on(saw 1% drop over the period of 7 hours.)

> In reply to kingpin @ 2013-02-18 23:54 from N7Ax - click to readur entitled to ur opinion.. but u cant b dat ignorant to say tht there is just 0.1% improvement.. if tht wer the case , it wudnt b jb(4.1.2)
it wud have been gb itself(some 2.3.x)
it like u saying, windows xp and windows 7 are same, just 0.1% improvement..
did u even try jb.. do u even know how to use it.. ?? even i loved gb, but its too old now..
nd we deserve atleast 1 os update..

> In reply to AxByCz @ 2013-02-19 07:42 from fCU9 - click to readyup at the time of release gb was a good choice, its v stable..
but tht doesnt mean tht they do not provide software support for the phone.. its a 2012 phone, so obviously if not jb they shud have released ics for it... not everybody can keep changing their phone wen new os is released..
and abt update not being proper, i dont think samsung developers and testers are so good, bcoz sony and htc and other companies give out os updates wid v few bugs, y cant samsung do tht.. obviously we ll have problem with the os , if there r bugs.. u got to b able to use it comfortably.. they can release the update wenever they want, bcoz i know its lot of work to tune the os.. but wen they give out dates, we all expect them to keep up with it..

> In reply to AxByCz @ 2013-02-19 07:33 from fCU9 - click to readI agree. If anyone wants JB then buy a phone with that.
After the update if any problems are there, everyone cries like a baby and woes Samsung.
What is their mistake? Af tje time of S Advance GB was a good choice.
If there are update problems then write to Samsung not GSMArena.
It is just a resource site not a complaint register that u put complaints against anything.

Aftrr updating when there are problems, everyone cries like a baby and woes Samsung for it.
What is their mistake? They try to give the best and at the time of S Advance Gingerbread was a good choice.

And theres not just 0.1% difference dont make a fool of urself buddy. If you use google now and see the output of project butter in jellybean ull throw away ur gingerbread. Visit wikipedia for a comparison between the 2 OS. Den ull know y ppl r waiting and r angry wid samsung.
And as OS get older they again start getting buggy. Always good to be in the latest or best to be in the second last OS.
If u still love ur gingerbread then ur juss using ur fone like those nokia devices which r mainly for calling n smsing dats it.
Dont mind buddy its an explaination not an insult :)

I am pretty sure that my user ram will go down after updating to jb as it have consideringly low ram user available in 768 mb ram size
for jellybean I think 1gb of ram is average performance.....
I will better sell it and purchase a onboard jb phone of today's generation with 1 gb RAM atleast.....
