Touchwiz Jelly Bean Leak


Recommended Posts

Although this is talked about in the http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/2061-new-samsung-galaxy-s-iii-update/ thread, that thread was created because of the L13 update so just the JB leak can be discussed by those of us willing to try it out.

Follow these instructions if you want to keep root afterwords.

1 - Download the two zips in the the link (one is the rom and other is the new modem)

2 - Flash ROM/Update

3 - Flash ModemAIO Radio Zip

4 - Flash Team Epic Root from Recovery

5 - Reboot


Before I installed I did go back to stock and then updated all the way to L13, then rerooted to install the leak. During set up I did not have it sync with google to grab all my old apps. Was making it as fresh of an install as possible.


So far this seem alot faster than IC. Really liking the new modem so far also. Doing speedtest here at the house with IC I always averaged right at 900 to 1M. On the new modem I a getting at least 1.5M and have gotten as high as 2.6. Average seems to be about 1.7M


Over all, the phone feels to be running faster. I have had one freeze up where it stopped responding. Some people are reporting that Superuser isn't working but I haven't used any app yet that requires it.


Really haven't do any customization yet as went to bed shortly after install but will be messing with it today. Probably going to be using the folders a lot which previously I only used on other launchers and custom roms.

At this point, I'm not sure whether battery life has taken a hit or whether I've just done a lot on my phone in the past 16 hours, beginning with the firmware upgrade. I'm going to go with the latter for now :)


I'll echo Richmc about the experience on JB being smoother than on ICS. There are still times when things will take a second to load, but those times are fewer and farther between.


At some point I need to see if GWallet still works on here; it's acting as if Ive rooted the phone when I haven't (though I had to flash CWM to get the update on board). Guess I need to figure out where the nearest PayPass-enabled merchant is first.


On the modem side, I'm not getting any better 3G speeds than I did before (not too surprising since I'm 99% sure my sector is carrier-limited rather than signal or backhaul limited). I am, however, getting better latency; I hit 81ms to Dallas last night over eHRPD.


Some pieces of the UI are more thoughtfully designed as well. The pull-down shade now has less options (no vibrate/silent, no airplane mode), however there's no more scrolling (which annoyed me a bit) and you can still access those settings via the power button menu (where you can access silent/vibrate/non-silent with one touch vs. cycling through them). The phone app now makes it very visually clear when a call is still connecting versus when the connection has been established, and TouchWiz...somewhat...conforms to JB's swipe-up-to-delete philosophy on the home screens, though the trash can is still a touch target rather than a large area.

I am running LIG build with LIH firmware/modem, waiting on the guy to drop the LIH ROM. Right now he has only posted just the firmware for that build, and so I went ahead and and flashed it.


On LIF I had some SOD and issues, but LIG hasn't given me that so far. Awesome leak, and all of the firmware leaks so far (LIF, LIG, LIH) have increased my 3g speeds and I got a 38 Mbps speed test on LTE, the fastest ever for me.

Well I was getting better speeds with the first modem (LIF) so I went back to it. Now I have no mobile network and and now at work for the next 8 hours with a phone that has no connection to the network. Going to be a very long night.


Update: had to use activate device and updated plr and profile and now seems to be working

    • Mine is still working fine here in Raleigh.   There were some outages related to the snow storm.    I have seen it take a couple of days to recover from storms.   It is not among the highest priority services.  
    • Looks like my MB gold at my office was finally decommissioned sometime last week. It was working the previous week and I was out of town last week. I came in today and it was powered down. I unplugged it and plugged it back in but it just keeps looping through trying to establish a connection. Looks like it's time to add it to our ewaste pile.
    • I did spot some NRCA in Crown Heights last weekend. Sadly because I'm using an iPhone I can't see the exact carrier combo but it did report that it was seeing 2 NR carriers. At first I thought it was a glitch or some weird stale data because my phone was still reporting NSA 5G and the primary NR carrier was the 80MHz n41 carrier but reading Sascha's article it's quite possible that my phone was using B2+B66 +n41+n41.  — — — — — On another note, it looks like someone found n5+n77+B2+B66 on Verizon:   
    • This entire FAA argument is stupid with no evidence at all that there is an issue with C-band.  You may be right that there is some conspiracy nut involved. The guard-band between what aircraft altimeters use and cellular C-band is 220MHz.  If any safety critical aircraft altimeter is reading signals from 220MHz away from the frequencies it is designed to use, that is a very broken safety critical device and should have been replaced it long ago.  Everything in an aircraft is designed and certified for precision and is checked regularly.  The aircraft is not designated as airworthy for instrument flight if the systems in it are not certified to be precise and in good working order.  If an altimeter is so broken that it is off by more than 220MHz from the frequencies it is designed to use, it could just as easily be off by 1GHz or more which would likely cause it to fall into other frequencies that are also already in use. 
    • https://www.pcmag.com/news/exclusive-we-found-t-mobiles-secret-weapon-against-c-band Seems like he's seeing: B2+B66 +n41+n41 n71+n41 Not that it really matters, I suppose:
