UPDATE YOUR SAMSUNG GALAXY MUSIC DUOS to OFFICIAL JELLY BEAN 4.1.2
Samsung has started rolling out the long-rumored but never officially-confirmed Jelly Bean update for the Samsung Galaxy Music Duos. Right now, it has been released only for Greece/Baltic region, but users around the world can easily download it and flash their devices.

Below find a complete step-by-step tutorial to update your Samsung Galaxy Music Duos S6012 to Jelly Bean 4.1.2:

[STANDARD DISCLAIMER: THIS IS A FAIRLY EASY GUIDE TO FOLLOW AND YOU SHOULD HAVE NO PROBLEMS UPGRADING YOUR PHONE. HOWEVER, PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IN THE EVENT THAT SOMETHING GOES WRONG AND/OR YOU 'BRICK' YOUR DEVICE.]

First off, download the following files

ODIN 3.07: https://www.copy.com/s/wSEoPPbzYXmF/...om_Odin307.zip

Samsung Firmware: NEW: GET THE LATEST (Jan 2014) 4.1.2 SAMSUNG FIRMWARE FOR EUROPE (GREECE) FROM HERE
METHOD TO INSTALL ON YOUR PHONE REMAINS THE SAME


EXTRACT BOTH THESE FILES TO YOUR DESKTOP. YOU SHOULD NOW HAVE TWO NEW FOLDERS ON YOUR DESKTOP.

HOW TO UPDATE:

Step 1:

Turn off your phone. Wait a few seconds, the phone will vibrate to confirm that it is fully switched off. Connect your Galaxy Music S6012 to a USB port on your PC using the ORIGINAL SAMSUNG USB cable that came with your device.


Step 2:

Go to Odin3 v3.07.exe that you have previously extracted into a folder on your desktop. Right click, and 'Run as Administrator.'





Step 3:

Now, press and hold three buttons at the same time: Volume Down + Home + Power button TOGETHER until you see the following warning message:





Press Volume Up button again to enter into Download Mode. Now your phone's screen will show this:





On the computer, you will see 'Added' in Odin’s message box:





You should also see COM port with a number highlighted in Blue if you successfully added your device. (Com 15 in my case)

NOTE: If you don’t get 'Added' then it means you do not have USB drivers installed for your device. Download from here. Install the drivers and try again. If it still does not detect the phone try another USB port or another USB cable.

Step 4:

In the Odin Window, click the PDA Button, and select the .tar.md5 file from the folder where you had previously extracted the Samsung firmware.





Step 5:

In Odin window, make sure Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time checkboxes are only two that are ticked.





Step 6:

Now, to begin the flashing process, hit the START button. The top left box in the Odin window will turn green and the flashing process will start.




On your phone it will look something like this:





Step 7:

After installation of the system your phone will reboot automatically and you will see a PASS message in the top left box of Odin.





You can now safely unplug your device from computer.

Your Galaxy Music S6012 should now upgrade its apps.





When it starts up, it should run Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean
Go to Settings > About phone to verify.





Congratulations! You now have your Samsung Galaxy Music Duos running on OFFICIAL Jelly Bean!

Note: If you were rooted before, you will have to root again and re-delete the system apps you may have deleted earlier.Your other apps, system settings and files will still be there.

NOW
ROOT
YOUR SAMSUNG GALAXY MUSIC S6012 JELLY BEAN 4.1.2


Now that you are enjoying the Jelly Bean goodness,
its time to root your phone so that you can remove all the bloatware,
make it faster and smoother, and customize the look and feel
to your heart's content.


NEW: ROOT THE LATEST (JAN 2014) SAMSUNG OFFICIAL 4.1.2 FIRMWARE FOR GREECE THROUGH THE METHOD PROVIDED BY @saikiransama DETAILED BY HIM HERE

* Thanks to mattanur for discovering the below method*



STEP 1

Download and unzip Cydia Impactor to a folder on your desktop.




STEP 2

Enable Developer Options on your phone, if you haven't already done so.

To enable it, click on Settings>About Device and scroll down till you see the "Build number".

Now keep tapping continuously on the Build number
till you see some messages on the screen counting down to enable the Developer options.
After a while, you will see a message informing you that the "Developer mode" is enabled.

Now turn on USB-debugging. Settings>Developer Options>OK>Tick USB debugging






STEP 3

On your computer, run Cycia Impactor (all the files from the zip should be in the same folder). It will look like this:







STEP 4

Click on the 'Start' button in Cydia. Wait till the program finishes running.



STEP 5

Install SuperSU app from Google Play. Open it. Click on 'Continue' when it asks to update binaries.



You're done! Now you can test your phone with the root checker app to make sure it is rooted.


Enjoy!

No, because this is official firmware from Samsung, only it is not for your region.

It does not increase your flash counter either, so you are perfectly safe. In case you need to give it for warranty or something, just flash your original firmware version again (which is also available from the same site you will get the new one from).

Check your firmware version in Settings>About phone and then download the firmware from here http://samsung-updates.com/device/?id=GT-S6012

Do a factory reset:

Start your phone by pressing Home+Volume up+Power and you will get the recovery menu. In recovery mode you can use Volume keys to navigate between options and Power key to select an option. Do Wipe data/Factory Reset as well as Wipe Cache Partition before selecting reboot system now.

Now try to start your phone normally. (You will still have Jelly Bean)

I have not uploaded, these are collected and uploaded by samsung-updates.com. Try download manager like flashget, internet download manager etc, these will resume your downloads even after they get interrupted. It is not safe to download roms from torrent or mediafire, 4shared etc.
