I've got one but it's freezing sometimes and the battery life is too short. It's getting on my nerves. Can anyone tell me what to do. Thanks

about rooting the infuse. one click root makes it easy. then install cyanogenmod cm10.2 download any of the roms for your devices. use the rom manager to install it. there is another way using odin3 and both will work.
a few words of warning....
have a samsung oem usb cable on hand it will be need to recover your phone if you brick it.
this is not for the faint of heart.
read and re-read and re-read the instructions. there is a margin for error but it is small.
read the reviews of the roms before installing.
some are better about power usage than others.
most important... rooting your phone will void the warranty.
if you have any doubts about doing it....dont!
most bricked phones are recoverable but you have to know how. again if have doubts...dont!
now for those that are still willing to root your phone.... it is worth it. i am running cm 10.2 android 4.3 and my infuse flies...

I have a rooted infuse 4g running Android 4.3 with a custom rom from Cyanogenmod. I have used skype on android 2.2 2.3 3.0 4.0 4.1 4.2 4.3. With stock rom it works well. With custom roms it varies depending on the developer. I have used it with 4.3 android and it works really well.
ON THIS PHONE SKYPE ONLY WORKS FOR VIDEO ON WIFI. When I enquired why it is that skype even just chat and txt and voice call with no video uses a lot of data. If you have a data limit only use skype when connected to wifi.

Actually rooting the Infuse is pretty easy compared to many other android phones... don't know why you're saying it's difficult.

I followed the above instructions and upgraded the Samsung galaxy infuse 4G from gingerbread 2.3 to Android Jelly Bean 4.1.

It will be difficult for you to do unless you know computers well. You will need 1 to 3 hours to complete.

Every single little step must be followed, pretty much fill in every single step.

First you must obtain CWM, it's a flashing utility which is accessed at boot up by holding Volume up + volume down + power

Phase 1:
---------

To obtain CWM head over too Jscotts odin url.

1. download the file which includes root access.
"Stock UCLB3 with root
UCLB3_Unbrick_root_1.1.zip"

2. you will also need Samsung Kies, which will install the usb driver for your Samsung galaxy. The link is on the website.

3. Place your phone into Download mode

To do this, have your usb cable for your phone plugged into the computer but disconnected from your phone. shut off your phone. When the power is off press Volume up and Volume down simultaneously, after the buttons are pressed plug in the usb cable at the same time, which should be connected to the computer.

This will place the phone in Download mode.

4. open the included Odin.exe, when you see the yellow bar under ID:COM then everything is good.

Follow the rest of the instructions on jscotts website.

Finally when this procces is done, reboot into android.

Phase 2:
---------
1) Download SGS kernel flasher
2) Click on the link on jscotts website to download a stock kernel which contains CWM. use "2013.04.30-CWM-Synthesis-1.2Ghz.zip - [Click for QR Code]"

Phase 3:
----------

description:

Convert the phone from gingerbread 2.3 to ICS Android 4.0, as the instructions say.

Head over too: Entropy's CM9 website:

http://forum.xda-developers.co...hp?t=1601844

1) There are 3 links on the website for Cynogen 9 rom for Samsung infusion 4g, any one is ok. Download CG9 for Samsung infusion 4g. version along with the Gapps.

2) After saving both zip's on your sd internal memory, shut off your phone. Press both volume up and volume down and power at the same time.

The phone will boot into CWM.

3) Make a backup of your original rom for your phone before proceeding.

4) Select Flash zip, select your ICS android 4.0 rom which you saved on your internal sd. (ie: "cm-9-20120620-UNOFFICIAL-infuse4g.zip"­;)

5) Install GAPPS as well, after step 4 is complete.

Again for the full instructions please follow the instructions on "Firmware][ICS]UNOFFICIAL CM9 for the Infuse 4G (07/28/2012)"

Phase 4
--------

1. Boot into CWM again buy pressing Volume up + Volume Down + power.

2Install ROM: Scroll down for downloads section
... The package will start to install..
... Phone will reboot into the install screen again...
... Continue to install [Automatically] If not manually flash again
... Phone will reboot again and be at the recovery screen...
3. Install Gapps

4. CWM: Wipe Cache Partition
5. CWM: Advanced/Wipe Dalvik Cache
6. Reboot

FINISH.

You will be happy to find Arabic as a language built in your new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

Hope this helps!
