Before installing JB you should back up with cwm you then just use this backup to go from JB back to ICS.

I agree entirely. Always, and I mean ALWAYS, do a CWM nandroid backup before any tweaks, edits or new rom installs. Hopefully you won't need it but you only have to have it hang at the boot logo after a rom install once to realise how useful it would have been.

It has certainly got me out of trouble on a few occasions and for the sake of 5 minutes to do the backup it really isn't worth taking the risk.

Thank you all. The first thing I did with your instructions is the nandroid. I don't actually need it 'cause I stay with october release and it is perfect, no problem at all with anything. I asked just to know for those who messed up with new versions and would like to get back due to many problems they have. I'll report the simple use of sp flash tool and version on forums where I attend.

Is the wifi on? or do you have data? and were you able to link your Android to your Google Account? If yes, continue trying the pattern lock thingy until is asks you to login to your Google account..

sim is not required for wifi, wifi is provided through your home internet connection. Sim is for 3G connection. There may be a button combination to do a factory reset of the phone.

No not yet although there is a talk of a G3 quad being released that will run 4.2 middle of the month so it may be put out then.

I dunno bout official rom for G3, you see new batches of the G3 is called G3N with S501 chipset, so now there are two variants..but somebody is trying to port the GThrill rom for the G3N, so at least it might get an unofficial 4.1..

Have you got this fixed, the rom is in English. If you mean the keyboard just go into settings and pick the android stock keyboard or go to the market and install any keyboard you want.
