      Please note that selling items on the forum directly is not allowed by the forum rules. There is a forum for eBay auctions whereby you can list the items on eBay and link to them there. This is the ONLY forum for this type of activity. You may also advertise links to the eBay forum in your signature. Please note that selling directly in contravention of these rules will result in a warning / suspension / ban.

Can we summarize all the threads ?

So I have the 4.0.4 ICS.


I don't know all the terms like CFW and NAND and blahblah and I don't really have the time to read 300 pages of replies...


I want to update to the 4.1.2 or 4.2 JB


I did root the phone on 4.0.4, but it was a semi successful root, as superuser and overclocking worked fine, but things such as "change the extension of system files" would not work.


I now get the "This device is not allowed to update" error when I try the official airborne update.


I also need the WIFI G3 and GPS.


What can I do ? I tried to flash the zip files from SD but I constantly get the ro.product.device error.


Most links people are refering to are dead.


How do I flash a firmware ? Can't I just flash the official JB firmware ? 

How do I unroot my phone so that I can make the official update ? 


Please help

I managed to update to the 4.1.2 version with the PC installer, I just needed the right version of the firmware and most of the links were down, but I finally found one.
