AnonD-70333, 07 Sep 2012froyo ftw!Froyo here too. Samsung only cares about Galaxies.
I'm using an old SGS1.
Just went from GB to ICS a week ago, because previous edition ROMs are stopped being developed and all devs try to make the newest ROMs work (JB).
There were some kinks here and there, but for most part my phone is OK.
Shame Scamsung stopped support for my phone.
But oh well that's the way it is.
I do agree that most don't know the difference between GB and JB and simply don't care if their phone just simply works.
We have 4 Android devices, SGH-i717R Note, GT-N7000 Note, TF-101 Transformer tablet & I9000M SGS all happily running 4.1.1 JB, baby! Most impressive is the SGS, going from Eclair in August 2010 to Jelly Bean 2 weeks ago!
Does anyone know if this includes roms or not? If would be nice if Google separated official releases from unofficial roms so we could see how many people actually flash (or don't) their phones.
Android is amazing where everyone runs on old software and bugs popping up randomly.
Android applications run in a sandbox, an isolated area of the operating system that does not have access to the rest of the system's resources, unless access permissions are granted by the user when the application is installed. Before installing an application, the Play Store displays all required permissions. A game may need to enable vibration, for example, but should not need to read messages or access the phonebook. After reviewing these permissions, the user can decide whether to install the application. The sandboxing and permissions system weakens the impact of vulnerabilities and bugs in applications, but developer confusion and limited documentation has resulted in applications routinely requesting unnecessary permissions, reducing its effectiveness. The complexity of inter-application communication implies Android may have opportunities to run unauthorized code.
Hey sport, att note cm10 working better than anything b4 it oh and I have flash too hate me more.
it feels so nice to be cut in the 1.2% of the pie/...

rcl4444, 06 Sep 2012Gingerbread is still very good. Those on Froyo commenting here - upgrade to 2.3.5 or 2.3.6, i... more... and be ready to LOSE YOUR FLASH movies etc for many months until the browsers & websites start catching up with whatever replaces it..
Sajjad, 06 Sep 2012Hmmm.. Good change, Its all upto the company what updates they are offering to its users. Ever... moreSo, Everyone loves to have JELLY BEAN in there OLD & SLOW Smartphones, and have it go like w a l k i n g t h r o u g h m u d.....
yes, it looks and works nice, but you just need patience, when it cannot work due to non - existent hardware that JB needs... LOL LOL
My google nexus still doesn t have it??? Why?its western european model?
Anonymous, 06 Sep 2012no risks dude! but jellyben added a lot of security protectors and better security and privacy... moreGingerbread is still very good. Those on Froyo commenting here - upgrade to 2.3.5 or 2.3.6, it's well worth it. If your carrier is not providing you with an upgrade then find an international release for your device (or custom ROM) and upgrade through Odin.
ICS is good, but it was clear from the outset it has problems:
- Google took far longer than expected to release it
- then took longer than expected to roll it out to nexus. Within in a few weeks they released 4.0.2 and rolled it out immediately.
- Manufacturers took months longer again before releasing ICS on their devices, and most waited for 4.0.3. Over 1 year later many have promised but still haven't released ICS for their devices.
Once GB got to 2.3.3 it was rolling out quickly by all manufactureres. This alone speaks volumes.
ICS has fundamental issues - Google basically said as much during the JB launch.
ICS is to Android what Vista was to Microsoft. Sure, many have good experiences with it, but many have not.
If your on the latest version of GB, just wait for JB. It's a significant re-write of many parts of Android. Manufacturers are already falling over themselves to get updates out. App devs were getting their apps JB ready weeks before it was released. And look, no 4.1.2 in site yet!
Updating to JB will be a safe bet. Sadly even JB will still have some core UI smoothness issues that hopefully will get proper rewrites in KLP.

Anonymous, 06 Sep 2012jellybean stopped all lags on most devices and yeah, gingerbread is very fluid and nice withou... moreGingerbread lag.ics lagging and busy circle like jellybean still the same. I hope no more busy circle in next android coz i love android os. I just playing a movie in the web about a hour and browsing about a hour then if i exit its took a long in busy circle. Any body encounter this in their jb?
Android Froyo does what I need to, what annoys me is i can see apps not supporting it soon. I have an Orange Barcelona, and seeing as I can't type on touchscreen, I cant see many replacement options
