I used the 4.1.2 files in the torrent linked on youtube and followed this advice
and the "2.5 GB DATA PERMANENT ROOT + FULLY WORKING RECOVERY" from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&highlight=1gb

Now i got 4.1.2 and 1gb ram. The GPS is still poo but I'm working on that


A google translate of the german is:

Code:
For anyone having issues with having only 512MB after flashing JB, this is what I did: 
first Copy all the files except boot.img from / 2.5GB-data-perm-root folder into / b92m411/FILE NECCESSARI folder. 
second Delete preloader_vanzo77_twn_jb.bin inside / b92m411/FILE NECCESSARI folder. 
third Flash using flashtool untill the green mark appears. 
4th Unplug your phone then boot into recovery (volume up + power). 
5th Thurs factory reset, then reboot system Voila! Now you have 1GB of RAM. If you want 2.5GB internal memory (not phone memory), flash and preloader.img EBR1 only inside / 2.5GB-data-perm-root folder by Flashtool. Then boot into recovery, go to mount and storage, format / data. Reboot your phone.

Thank you for that tip, although it looks like you have to copy the files from the 2.5G dowload and rename them, correct?

Thank you, Ben.
Regarding the GPS, this morning , just for curiosity, I went in my car and placed my phone on the dash board. After a couple minutes I received the GPS signal and lock.
Never before!!!. I have to say that I have In Car NavigationSystem and the aerial is under the dash board. As I walked away from the car, the accuracy was increasing(in distance).
What all this means? Is the aerial problem with the phone?
P.S. The GPS on my original HTC One XL is much faster to lock and the accuracy is about 3 Meters as the picture shows.

Hi, I was thinking the the socket to the left of the SD Card is for an external antenna. Was wondering if adding one would boost gps signal and or wifi?

Yeah, I already saw that before posting here. However, I don't understand french even with Google Translate. That's why I hope somebody makes the english tutoial or video. That way I know exactly what I'm doing.
