EXCLUSIVE Update your Galaxy Beam to Android 4.1.2 (By Odin)

BNikwVKCIAEXZFn

Samsung takes their own sweet time to update their mid-range Galaxy devices to Android 4.1.2 but thankfully, we’re here! Today we want to share the last test firmware based on Android 4.1.2 for the Galaxy Beam. There aren’t many interface differences but the device feels like reborn with faster performance and better battery life. We expect Samsung to release the official update around end next month (Samsung started the first test with Android 4.1.2 in March).

Below are a couple of screenshots of Android 4.1.2 for the Galaxy Beam. 

This firmware is an official firmware leak from Samsung given by one of our insiders.

Big thanks to him!

Download the firmware here

Flashing Instructions
- Unzip the file
- Open Odin 3.07 (already included in the firmware package)
- Restart phone in download mode (Press and hold Home + Power + Volume down buttons)
- Connect phone and wait until you get a blue sign in Odin
- Add CODE_I8530XXAMF1_1053499_REV00_user_low_ship.tar to CODE
- Add CSC_OXA_I8530OXAAMF1_1053499_REV00_user_low_ship.tar to CSC
- Add GT-I8530_EUR_XX_8G to PIT
- Make sure re-partition is ticked
- Start flash, sit back and wait a few minutes.
- If you encounter any issues with the firmware (Any FC, Bootloop etc)
- Boot into recovery mode (Home+ Power + Volume Up)
- Choose to wipe/factory reset. (THIS WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR DATA INCLUDING YOUR INTERNAL SD CARD!)
- Then choose reboot and you should be good to go!

- MAKE SURE TO BACK-UP EVERYTHING BEFORE YOU PROCEED!!!

        no, its not official, you should reread the news “We’ll of course, reconfirm this piece of information with our source and update the post accordingly. ” and they are not updated it yet, so its not confirmed officially yet.

    Samsung needs to hurry up and officially announce that they will NOT be updating the samsung galaxy plus and galaxy mini 2. It is unfair to give people false hopes and make us wait for nearly 10 months. We need this news so we can move on and buy a new phone.

    I think there will be no updates for jelly bean for ace plus because samsung is all most over providing jb update to there handset and now there concern is only for S4 and bring 4.3 os to s4…….
    Hmmm…..so all ace plus user dont write for jb for ace plus because its now become fo i.olish and if really wanna intall jb then download firmware for xda site becoz dev are the only one who is caring us…………
    Samsung really sucks…who promis and thn deny

    Even if samsung does update the galaxy mini 2 or galaxy ace plus most of us are not planning on keeping the phone for our entire lifetime. I think i will buy a shiny new phone now instead of waiting for an update that could slow down my phone.

    I have heard that ace plus would update in Q3 2013.let just keep some hope for updating ace plus. At least, we can keep waiting until the firmware update for ace plus built in May/June. It might be 2.3.6 or 4.1.2.

        Works perfectly in Brazil, although using Portugal Portuguese. Google Now is great and listens to voice commands in Brazilian Portuguese. Contact list is now transferred to car Bluetooth and displayed as last name/first name instead of first name/last name. :( Projector app is exactly the same from the original firmware and works fine. Wifi has new auth methods, we now can access wifi-max with SIM card auth! :) Thanks for the release, Beam is awesome and would sell much more with this new firmware.

    Quick question:

    what is CODE in Odin? With Odin 3.07 that is packed here, the options are:
    - repartition (PIT)
    Then under “Files”:
    - Bootloader
    - PDA
    - PHONE
    - CSC

    I would guess that what is called CODE in the flash tutorial is actually PHONE but can anyone confirm?

    When I try to install this update I get the next error on the phone after the reboot while the phone is installing the update:
    E:Error in /cahe/recovery/sec_csc.zip
    (Status 7)
    I did use the option wipe/factory but that didn’t help anything.
    Does anyone have a idea what to do to use this update?

    Also I put the “code-file” into “phone” because “code” I can’t find into odin3.

    Hi has anyone experienced problems with the phone function after this update? When I either make or receive a call the display turns off and I am unable to access the keypad … which means I cannot disconnect the call, mute or punch in additional digits. I tried reflash the firmware, but it did not fix the issue. Any ideas on how to fix? Also I am unable to go back to GB using the original firmware (from sammobile). Please advice!

    I think u can easily solve this issue without flashing anything again i guess…just head to settings–>call,and look for turn on proximity sensor and click it,that should help…..by the i wishing i was the one enjoying this new update,sadly ace plus has no future.reply if it worked !
