Use my ROM at your own risk. I am not responsible if you break your phone. Always do a NAND backup or other backup, and READ. (unless you like losing your data).

Review and install videos
Hopefully someone will make one for the JB build. Hint hint hint

To Install
  1. Before installing make sure to have installed or have a JB modem ready to install. You will not have 3G on an ICS modem
  2. Boot to recovery
  3. Make an NAND Backup
  4. Wipe the phone (with a Format All script)
  5. Flash the ROM (If your recovery complains about a stock recovery begin flashed after the install. That can be ignored. This is to support init.d scripts for now.)
  6. Boot the phone
  7. Go to the updater (Under the stock section) and install Part 2 (Two part install is to finish theming Talk)
  8. Reboot and Enjoy


Wipe before installing over any previous builds

It has arrived!

Blu Kuban has always been my favorite rom of all time for my phone, also the first. Now it’s nice to see that Rujelus has continued to develop it onto JB after getting an S4!! Even though this may be the last rom I flash for this phone, it was a fun, learning experience that I will bring to the next device that I get (Nexus HD+ in JulyJ). It is not sad to say that this may be my final flash of a rom on this phone because it’s a great rom and now I am pretty much set with this phone until Boost decides to release the s3—Thanks to Ruj!

Thank you Rujelus,
