Samsung Galaxy Fit Gets Jelly Bean Nightly Build + Step By Step Flashing Guide


Jelly Bean is no doubt the most hyped and awaited version of Android. In March, 2012 it was a well searched term over the web and even after months of its release, it is not showing any signs of slowing down. Only few manufacturers have been kind enough to give the users an update for Jelly Bean in their android device and with the big giants but eligible devices, our fear of not getting an official update gets bigger. With dozens of devices getting Jelly Bean ports that, at least show the Jelly Bean interface or we can say Boot there is a high need for the manufacturers to wake up.

Among with many others, the Samsung Galaxy Fit has got an Unofficial Build of CyanogenMod 10 and works pretty well. All courtesy of the XDA senoir member TheWhisp we can now enjoy CM10 in the Samsung Galaxy Fit. The build for samsung galaxy Fit is quite working and there are only few glitches around the navigation. The main problems which on will have to face after installing this ROM are no camera, no USB tethering and echos during calls sometimes. Aside these problems the ROM works quite beautifully and is about ready for everyday use. XDA Thread
