Guide on flashing Faryaab’s 4.1.1 Jelly Bean ROM on GT-I9300

Short written guide (Mainly by Faryaab):
-Copy Google Apps and ROM to your internal SD Card
-Enter Recovery
-Do a Wipe/Factory Reset
-Wipe cache & Dalvik
-Flash Android 4.1.1 JB ROM
-Flash Google Apps
-Reboot your device!

When flashing a new build, when already on this rom, such as going from Build 2 to Build 3 – there is no need to wipe.
Simply install the ROM, and after it has finished, don’t forget to flash GAAPS!

Hope you enjoyed my guide!

    Thanks for showing how the google search actually works with various, and casual examples 🙂 I wish I could upgrade my SGS3 to JB but still I’m not convinced whether it’ll provide much better experience than on Sammy’s rather stabilized ICS for now. I mean still many bugs have to be fixed. How’s the battery life or audio quality you perceive?

      Well the jb port is stable, and usable as a daily phone. However there are a few things that don’t fully work properly. The thing that made me flash away from jb, was the battery life. Jb has a short battery life, which drains rather fast.

      As for sound quality, they are identical. Especially seeing as i put siyahs kernel on both versions :)!

    I heard about the battery drain issue on JB .. my battery already suffers on ICS due to the way I customize my screens! so I guess I’ll stay ICS for now

    Thanks a lot for the video!
