The horrible BNB1 update this month has left many grand users with a laggy and slow device. After 5 days playing around with my frustratingly slow device, i managed to set everything right.

Steps to reclaim your Grand-

1 - Root the device
2 - Install Titanium app
3 - Download Gallery and Launcher alternatives from the play store...i installed quickpic and nova launcher.
4 - Take backup of Gallery and Touchwiz in titanium.
5 - Uninstall Gallery and Touchwiz in titanium.
6 - Reboot and enjoy lag free Grand like always.

Hello,

Just follow the steps in this video to get OTA Updates.
Only requirement is you are on Stock rom and it does not matter if you are rooted or not.

It works I have tested it:
