Cool [Q] Jelly Bean of ROGERS Infuse 4g [DEVS should see/Important]

Greetings !

So I bought Samsung Infuse 4g a few months ago from Canada via ROGERS. I really loved the phone but with time its stock ROM became old. I didn't liked it as ICS and Jelly Bean came in to the market.
Hence I searched the internet specifically this website ( I am NEW here ) and found many custom ROMS, however almost all of them were regarding AT&T Infuse 4g and NOT Rogers Infuse 4g. My build number is UXKG3 .
I really like CM10 and AOKP ROMS... Please help me.
People who have ported AT&T Roms on Rogers Infuse end up having big problems. I don't want to end up like them.

Please help me.
Devs should see this.

Thanks in Advance !

The rogers infuse is technically the same as the at&t one.
You can use any rom you want.

Just be sure to follow the necessary steps to upgrade to JB.

Follow the directions in the roms op exactly and you shouldn't need to connect to a computer at all. When you get to jelly bean you can download and flash the Rogers modem from this thread;

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=31097259

Last one on the list. Good luck. Once you get to jellybean you wont want to go back.

First of all Thanks.
Secondly I am quite noob in this. Never rooted my mobile phone. Can you explain me the MTD's and which one I will require if I want to run Scotts CM10 4.1.2 (JB) on my Rogers Infuse 4g ?

Lastly .. I have a bigger problem that this that my smartphone doesn't connects to PC. I installed Kies and everything but still it wont connect. I am pissed ... :S

Help ME

MTD is the file system used on JB roms. Your phone will be converted to it the 1st time you flash the rom.

You will 1st need to root & install cwm recovery. You can find specific instructions on how to do this on a rogers by doing a quick search.

Uninstall kies and try manually installing the drivers found in the iset thread.

In my experiences the infuse is just a pain in the arse when trying to connect to the computer for the first time. Seriously if you don't have the perfect cord, the proper USB port on your computer, and the sun isn't at the proper angle in relation tovthe orbit of Saturn it just wont freaking work. On that note, in addition to manually installing the drivers you could try a different USB port, a different cord, a different computer, or maybe a wizard.

The guide to rooting a Rogers infuse is in the sticky section of this q&a thread and the iset (infuse super everything thread) is in the sticky section of the infuse android development thread.

First time rooting I would suggest playing around with flashing gingerbread roms. They are safer for lack of a better term. I don't mean like completely kill your phone safer (the infuse is incredibly hard to permanently brick) but easier to fix mistakes. If you screw up going to jellybean you have no choice but to Odin or heimdall back to stock. With gingerbread you aren't changing file systems or partition sizes.

I can't stress this next part enough- READ. EVERYTHING. DON'T SKIM. READ. THEN READ AGAIN. The more you know the easier it is. The fact that you are on an infuse means that you have the luxury of a very friendly community at your disposal. Most of the people here will help. Especially if they get the impression you are trying to help yourself.

Good luck and let us know I'd you have any questions. The iset thread is a wonderful thing full of tons of info. It can be overwhelming though. I check in multiple times a day so if you need help just holler.
