MD5 SUM *f0b34089711a89f1f26bea0a46583211* MD5 SUM

You need HBOOT 1.31+ for this ROM.

Instructions To Flash the ROM:

For the Jellybean update you need to have flashed the updated firmware. Please have a look at the many guides available on how to do this

1.     Download the RENOVATE ROM zip to your computer and copy it to your device's virtual SD card. Once done, on your PC open the zip with a zip extractor and extract the file "boot.img" to your fastboot folder.
2.     Reboot your phone into Bootloader Mode and connect the USB cable, make sure you have your display says "Fastboot USB" after your device is recognized.
3.     Press Win Key + R, and type CMD. This will open up an MS-DOS prompt. Navigate to your fastboot folder via "cd C:\android_sdk\fastboot" commands.
4.     When in the right folder (where you stored the boot.img), in CMD type "fastboot flash boot      boot.img" and wait till the action completes. Then type "fastboot erase cache", once its done type "exit" (this will close the CMD window).
5.     Now disconnect the USB cable and select HBOOT option in Bootloader Mode. Then you will see a RECOVERY option, select it and press the power button to go to recovery.
6.     You need to do a full wipe before installing RENOVATE ROM, which means:- factory reset/data wipe + cache wipe + dalvik cache wipe and lastly format /system in mounts and storage section.
7.     Once that is done, you are ready to flash the RENOVATE ROM zip. If you didin't do a full wipe in the previous step you have the option for AROMA installer to do the wipe for you.
8.     After installation has completed, you will be asked to reboot. Just check the box and press ok.
9.     Your device will reboot and you will be greeted with a glowing blue light of the RENOVATE boot animation.
10. Please be patient while the device is booting, it can take a while!!

 IceColdJelly 3.4.1(AOKP unofficial - JellyBean 4.1.2)

ROMS should contain everything you need to enjoy JB. You are not required to install any Add Ons, simply download the latest ROM, flash it, and go!
You are STRONGLY recommended to fully wipe your device before flashing, and if possible avoid restoring system apps and system data with Titanium Backup - these can cause stability issues that are very hard to debug. If you believe you know what you're doing - then fine, go ahead, but please don't complain if you experience strange behavior.

Download the ROM Here or Here And Follw the Below written Instructions Carefully:

Repack it your self with this wonderful on-line repacking tool xcesco89

  • turn OFF your phone
  • BACKUP your data using recovery (and SD on first flash just in case)
  • boot in bootloader
  • select fastboot mod
  • flash boot.img via fastboot that is located in the fastboot flash boot boot.img
  • run this command now: fastboot erase cache
  • go back to hboot screen
  • select recovery
  • full wipe is needed IF you aren't coming from other AOSP 4.2 rom and the best is to use this script!!
  • flash the rom
  • flash newest gapps (Google applications) from here -they NEED to be flashed after every ROM flash
  • boot
You want to change stock DPI?
Follow this link and it's instructions to get playstore working

Overlay feature usage: 
To have your apps and scripts etc automatically installed during ROM flash place them in:
sdcard/overlay/system/app/ (for system apps)
sdcard/overlay/system/etc/init.d/ (for scripts)

What's Working
Everything from tgascoigne's and TeamNDVRu's roms

What's Broken
everything that is mentioned in TeamNDVRu's thread:

  • WiFi direct doesn't work
  • In call volume adjustment works, but not fully well in Speaker mode
  • MHL output is rotated incorrectly to portrait in horizontal mode (but workaround added since alpha 8 for hw decoded videos/youtube. Use bsplayer from playstore, almost all videos play with it in correct rotation in hwoverlay)
  • No FM radio app in ROM. But Spirit FM works from market (it's commercial!)

Issues with GPS??

  • Download app called GPSfix from market
  • Go to a place were you normally wouldn't have any problems with fixing location
  • Start the app and click start fixing
  • If your GPS isn't broke you should get 1 or more satellite icons in your screen after a minute or 2
  • Let it run and see if it gets a fix now
  • If you locations has been found, it will give you a message
  • Now try again with any other app, it should be working now
