Okay I've been using it for almost a week now and I have to say its 10x more smoother than ics, multitasking is beautiful, WiFi and 3g is much stronger (I know because I used 4.0.4 and I had the xperia ray and my wife uses galaxy and in my toilet I always loses signals WiFi and 3g) and now I have 3 bars which is like wow!! I can't think of anything else but its the best rom I used till now because I tried all and none of them compares to this rom..... Just 2 things that bugs me is that the volume is kinda low but I'm using speaker boost which excellent and the vibrating sometimes doesn't on incoming calls and SMS but I'm using an app to fix that. So yea I recommend this rom to anyone and I'm loving it so far its flawless

And about battery life sorry.... Ummm I'm using Facebook app viber whatsapp hotmail app speaker boost app and beakon 24/7 running in the background and without playing games and WiFi 24/7 it lasts around 38 hours with of course using it every half an hour to an hour

Dear Supracer,

Is it a big problem for you to make for us a short manual how to flash JB rom to our G2 1GB RAM version? I would be very happy
+ which way of rooting this phone is the best? (I have found 2 or 3..)

Okay this is how I did it step by step and follow me exactly

Now to root phone you need to go to http://www.modaco.com/topic/358626-j...ickroot-guide/ trust me this works and its very quick and easy even though it says jiayu g3 its for our phone as well if you have problems pm me and stay with Google chrome for translating

Okay now once you rooted you will be entering a Russian site
http://forum.china-iphone.ru/viewtopic.php?f=70&t=21783
Here you will be downloading the 4.0.4 custom rom and flash tool to install on phone. I think there will be instructions there but if not go to this website to know how to flash the rom http://bm-smartphone-reviews.blogspo...orial.html?m=1

A big thanks from me! Supracer helped me onto JB as above.

Love the Rom, really smooth, batter ylife has def intitely got better. Only issue was no keyboard on the ROM so either stick one in the zip before flashing or load an apk ont oyour SD card ready for when you start JB for the first time.

Once on JB, I took the recovery.img from the Russian 4.0.4 ROM Supracer mentions above and installed it using Mobileuncle (from Google Play) and it was pretty straightforward.

I would say do it, its a fine ROM for day to day use.

Supracer will know more than me, but I dont think THIS version will.

However I do think I've seen references to an (official?) JB for the 512mb floating around the place.

Dual core or single core?

I just did a quick search and it seems there is no 4.1 for the "popular version" or the "G2L" I'm sorry dude but I heard there will be one in the end of the month...... Meanwhile look into lewaos forum and see.... You got a lot of ROMs for your phone and excellent 4.1 imitations.... Just look at 3 sites for the G2L or the popular version dual core roms

O yes for the single core there is an official jb 4.1.2
