    Hi .. I installed JB Russian ver XXLPY thru odin , It was working with me perfectly . later on I connected to kies and updated XXLPZ and XXLQZ . Now my phone seems to be hanging all the time. Daily I used to restart 2-3 times while opening videos and other applications. it takes more time to open up applications compare with gingerBread. I fed up with this new JB update XXLQZ. Now am flashing it to first Russian release XXLPY. Hope things work well………..

      is it a question or a statement?? because i’m a SGSA user(malaysian) and i really wanna upgrade my S advance but i’m just afraid there might be bugs anywhere..

      • Roque

        If there are some bugs in this Rom, then you always have an option to Port back to your Stock Firmware.

        • sam

          so you’re saying that you’re not having any problems with your s advance after it has been upgraded to Jellybean..

          • Roque

            Really not. This is an Official update and should not have any problem.

          • sam

          • Roque

            Yes it will probably work fine in Malaysia. If it doesn’t, then you can always port back to your original Rom.
