The list of unofficial tools that help owners of various gadgets update them with various operating system versions is now even more generous. Samsung’s Galaxy S Advance GT-i9070 is ready to receive Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean thanks to a custom ROM that its creator named Supressed.

If you, too, own such a smartphone and want to see it feature Jelly Bean as an OS, then you’re welcome to follow the requirements and steps included in today’s post here at DroidGator.com.

Requirements

Everything about this tutorial starts with some requirements. They are the tools which make for a successful update, rooting, unrooting and so on in any guide ever published. You need to have rooted the Galaxy S Advance before wanting it to feature the Android Jelly Bean.

Then you have to have a custom recovery image on the phone, use a comp with Windows listed among its features, charge the phone’s battery, make backups (necessary later), enable USB Debugging on the smartphone and turn every single security program on the laptop and handset off.
