hi putbinoot,

thanks for posting the jelly bean update, was waiting for the full offical one, but very tempted to give it a try.

when you say lose all your apps, i assume you mean any you have down load from play store?

or does this include google stuff, play store included or is that part of the rom?

any better than the one in the link i posted?

sorry for the the questions, just want to know what to expect if i give it a go.

Maybe I can help. Just updated to JB 4.1.2 beta 1. After update it includes play store, gmail\ google search (no google maps but can be downloaded from play store)

A couple of chinese apps that can be uninstalled or disabled.

Seems a worthy update

yeah maybe not my best explanation, Google play etc is there you just have to download your apps and set everything up again as if phone was new.

With the G300 the problem with ICS back to GB and vice versa was they where on different basebands ICS and JB are on the same so as long as you use the same app ie CWM for the backup and restore there should not be a problem. So do your back up and also keep a copy on a pc or dropbox account for safe keeping then do the update. I tried the update using the onboard system update app but that failed, i then flashed using the spflash tool which went ok. I have had alot of problems with using the flash tool before with drivers and operation procedure but I think after looking around alot I have got it down to the right drivers and procedure which is listed in post one. If I can help with any thing feel free to ask me or anybody else in here i am sure they will be happy to help.

I don't have a keyboard dictionary (dutch) on the 4.1.2 beta.

I already tried the ics spellcheck fix on the jellybean beta but it didn't work.

Is there a similar fix for 4.1.2, if so where can I find this?

Thanks ^^

Spell check fix is for ICS it should not be needed for JB, just select dutch. system settings/language & input/android keyboard settings/input language and select dutch.

Well, I can select it but the dictionary is empty.

English works fine :/

I've tried the Swiftkey keyboard and it works fine, so I'll use that instead.

can't remember if there was any, if there was I don't have them now so must have just uninstalled them. G4 is looking to be march April launch which probably means may. No development yet on this forum there is a lewa ROM and no doubt some others.

@putbinoot, can you enlighten me about the new jb beta? i rooted and cwm-ed my ics phone, and thinking about upgrading to jb. it is possible to update through cwm (with a backup and a full wipe beforehand, of course), or it's only possible via spflash/builtin update app? also will i lose my cwm in the process?

Thanks a lot. Guide was really useful!

I have a problem though with my sdcard. In recovery my phone is not able to mount to the sd card, neither can he make a back-up on the sd-card.

Anyone an idea for this solution? (SD card was formatted 2 days ago so I don't think that's the problem)

Format card using phone again, this should solve it, back up it's contents to a pc using micro sd adapter if it has anything on it you want to keep.

My update failed using the on board app and i had to use spflash tool which is easy once you work out how which i have explained in first post. There may be a version out there that can be done using cwm if I see it I will post a link. I have gone back to ICS as netflix and bbc iplayer do not work under JB. Also you will loose cwm but you can put it back on using mobile uncle, also the update is pre rooted so you won't have to do that again. Edited by putbinoot

Thanks for the quick answer. I tried that, didn't work. I still get the message 'E:Can't mount /sdcard/'.

I searched the internet for people with the same problem. On other phones what seems to be working is installing another recovere (e.g. rogue recovery).

Is there another recovery working on this phone? Or do you know another solution?

Edit: I tried to flash CWM recovery 6.0.2.8 and TWRP out of Mobile uncle tools. Unsuccessful, always ended up in the first CWM Recovery v.5.5.0.4.

I know the logical answer: use flashtool, but there I also have a problem I can't solve using google: When I attach the phone I get: BROM ERROR can't open com port. I installed the drivers like a million times. I'm really out of ideas here :)

okay, thanks!

i'll stick with ics, too, then. it's too stable to mess up with something beta or unstable, although i don't use netflix (non us ip) and bbc (non uk ip), i don't want to risk it. :)

I stay with ICS too. I read too many people having problems of any kind with all the modded JB and the beta.

It would be appreciated a HOW TO get back to official 4.0.4 :)

If you are familiar with SP FLASH TOOL, just install an official ROM by ejiayu (howto: first post by putbinoot). Should work perfectly.
