got it working whey.. it wouldnt boot up to recovery.. got it to goto recovery during a boot loop by plugging in usb.. i think.. the only think i can think is that earlier today i replace the mms.apk and mms.odex with an earlier version from jf3.. didnt like that at all. but i didnt reboot till later.. this was to try and work around the messaging bug in jg1.. .since i had to reinstall i am happy to report as previously reported that the the csc from jff messaging works fine the the modem and core files from jg1.. (that is what i reflashed it too..)

Did you use the other 512.pit file? and did you check re-partition?
Make some screenshots!

Did you install the latest version of Kies? (just for the driver?)

And did you close kies before you started flashing?

I think its worked.
YESSSSS
Im on WJG5 ....shall I just leave it on that. I thought I would roll back to JG1 with r2, as I was having problems with it forever scanning the SD Card, and with MTP mode keep on flashing ...initializing.
Which it is doing right now


I have the latest version of Kies installed...and I never open it.

Edit: SHOULD I be able to roll back to an earlier firmware?

As far as i know you can flash whatever firmware you would like! the best option right now is to use JG5!

Correct me if i'm wrong!
