Update Samsung Galaxy S 4G with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean CM10 ROM

What we are about to discuss in a short while has everything to do with Galaxy S 4G manufactured by Samsung. In other words: we will tell you which are the steps required for your phone’s update with Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. We are going to use a custom ROM baptized CM10 by its creator. However, this method does not guarantee you won’t get bugs, since the ROM has yet to be stabilized. But the bugs aren’t that serious, trust us.


In preparation for this procedure we recommend that you take care of some pre-requisites. Here they are: as always, make sure to perform a full backup, then shut down the antivirus apps normally use and turn USB Debugging one. Next: use a laptop that boasts Windows and install ClockworkMod Recovery on the phone.

This should be followed by a full charge of the handset’s battery. What we also recommend is to be aware that the warranty will no longer feature on your device; however, you can get it back by either allowing an upgrade with a Samsung-released software or by downgrading to the original ROM file. Last but not least: root the Galaxy S 4G SGH-T959V.Samsung-Galaxy-S-4g

After all of the above requirements comes the procedure we brushed upon in our introductory passage. So let us see how we can help you update your Galaxy S 4G with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
