Good News for fellow xda member that uses the same device ! Finally Ulefone Star N9776 has Jelly Bean ROM...
Full Credits to Aivars from forum.china-iphone.ru, he has taken the effort to backup his Factory ROM, upload it & share with us...

What i did was cook it with Android Kitchen, add Root & Busybox & thats it, clean pre-rooted Factory ROM that can be install with any custom recoveries to any N9776...

Pls make sure you have the correct 4-in-1 Combo Chip before installing...

Having said that, pls pls make a nandroid backup first before installing it as it replace the boot.img & system partition... If you don't like it then you can any time roll it back via nandroid restore...

Please also make sure you have 100% the same device or you will end up like them here ! ( That is including me... No worries, TP has been identified here )
 

Its very unique for Ulefone Star N9776 that comes with a plastic perspex holder for the device... It also has the Ulefone label at the bottom of this holder...

Mediatek MT6575 Star N9776
 

Added on Feb 14, 2013 - Notice
Just did some thread following up on china.iphone.ru...

it turns out that there are emergence of cheaper version of N9776 & i thought to myself how the price dropped so fast & it turns out that it is indeed the cheaper version MT6575...

MT6575 is Pin-to-pin compatible with MT6577 so some clever manufacturer instead of upgrading, they are downgrading N9776...

So pls make sure & don't just flash blindly, this JB ROM update is only for MT6577...

Credits : Bulletproof from china-iphone.ru, he has backup his MT6575 Factory ROM via MtkDroidTools...

Download link : Star N9776 based on MT6575 SoC ONLY

Yes, i can switch on GPS, Bluetooth & Wi-Fi & it did connect... Very stable no FC while i tested it...

However, i didn't do a 100% test on it as i switch back to my own ported Lewa OS, love the Lewa ui better than JB...

AFAIK, there are 2 version of hardware for N9776, ov5647 that uses MT6620 & 9p017 uses 6628, which hardware do you have

As said, this update is directly cook without adding any sauce or spice & i believe it works better on 6628 since its from 6628 ROM...

@kumar abhishek
Bad news for you, bro... JB ROM wouldn't boot without JB boot.img....

Thank you for answer. It's true, ROM is stable and fast but that damn wifi. My friend bought this phone in January 2013 so it should be with newer hardware. Hardware version number can be found in Engineering menu right? I'll check it.

Do you know anything about kernel source codes for MTK6577? I can't find any.

I found solution for wifi problem: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...67&postcount=3
