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

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!

      • 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.

    • uff now i die cool !! this phone is most preferred by me because os its long battery life even watching movies gives 3 hours plus,size is comfortable and projector is awesome .previously i owned htc one x gs2 and iphone 4s also .

    • does it have the spanish language on this test firmware

  14. I guess that ace plus will receive jelly bean soon because the firmware pages did not update in May and June!

  15. galaxy mini 2 please :(
    we all waiting..we galaxy mini 2 users !

  16. We, samsung plus user, are waiting for jelly bean from February. Sammobile please post some good news for Ace Plus user. We are getting frustated of that waiting.

  17. We, samsung Galaxy Ace plus user, are waiting for jelly bean from February. Sammobile please post some good news for Ace Plus user. We are getting frustated of that waiting.

  18. 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.

    • true!.. they just cant keep playing with our hopes!

  19. when will GALAXY ACE PLUS gets jelly bean update ???? U guys promised us looooong back !! plz atleast give us an information about the update !

  20. 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

  21. 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.

  22. 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.

  23. I can not figure out where to put “CODE”?

    • you can put “code” in “PDA” was what I did!

  24. Thanks For Beam Update.

  25. this warming beyond normal, and does not have the Portuguese Brazil Portuguese Portugal only, sorry my english google

    • More the remainder working perfectly

      • 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.

    • does it have spanish the test firmware

  26. Tested. Work Fine.

  27. Galaxy s duos user’s patiently waiting.. we hope samsung will release its update sooner..

  28. hello, anyone encountering wifi problems(low wifi signal) after upadating to 4.2.2? thanks for answering.-

  29. 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?

  30. How can I downgrade? This version is laging a lot… Tnks

  31. NEED ROOT ???

  32. hi I want the Arabic version please

  33. ace plus please

  34. I hope ace plus in this month please

  35. 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.

    • I have fond the solution: code file into pda instate of phone as “feliciobeam” did say on this page. My phone is now running on version 4.1.2.

      Thanks!!!

  36. any one answer me about update for ace plus

    • redamazeka 24 th october and no jb for ace plus,november/december is not for 4.1.2 jelly bean its for 4.3 and profit making…..so the 4.1.2 jb is official done,sorry mini 2,s duos and ace plus users.

  37. I need advice, I can’t find place where I need put that CODE file in odin.
    - Add CODE_I8530XXAMF1_1053499_REV00_user_low_ship.tar to CODE
    It’s this step. Please help..

  38. Are u sure for ticked repartition

  39. many thanks , my beam is new phone.

  40. 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!

  41. 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 !

  42. hotfire link not working
