Flash Siyah v5.0.1 via Odin in download mode and get rid of the triangle first using triangle away app. Then after doing a full wipe flash NeatROM or Alliance rom or any other stock based with android version 4.1.2. Thats how I got rid of 4.0.4.

Because I don't expect a JB official firmware to be pushed by Samsung in my region (India) any time soon , if at all

it should be safe if u follow my instructions now.
1) go to philz cmw6 page and flash the kernel matching your firmware
2)download any custom based rom based on 4.1.2 for example neat,alliance,disaster,biftor anything of your choice.
3)go to philz cmw6 and wipe date,cache and dalvik..cmw6 is safe for wiping,only cmw5 is unsafe for wiping
4)then flash your custom rom and enjoy.

Found out the hard way...
Well, I found out the hard way... I was running XXLQ6 stock firmware last week I performed a wipe. After about two minutes the phone went off permanently...
After looking for a solution I came across this post, too late for me unfortunately...

So you performed it in CWM or stock recovery?
