Steps to Install Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean

  • I request Those Who Follow Manual Install on Your Device , Kindly Make A Full Backup of your Phone ( To Restore )
  • Downloads 
Steps : 
  • If you are on any 4.0.x ROM, it is highly suggested you do a full factory reset (wipe data/cache in   recovery) prior to flashing Jellybean! 
  • If you are upgrading from a JB ROM (4.1), please just wipe cache and dalvik cache.
  • Wipe accordingly as outlined above
  • Use your recovery to flash the ROM file
  • Do NOT flash any gapps - they are all included
  • Optionally, flash the baseband (radio) update if you'd like the newest one
  • Reboot - be patient, the initial boot may take a few minutes
Baseband Installation  (optional) :
  • Boot into recovery
  • Wipe Dalvik / Cache
  • Flash the new baseband
  • Boot into System
  • Open GetRIL and let it do its magic, by installing the matching RIL
  • Smile Baseband and RIL are up-to-date
Ready for 4.1.x installation ( JELLY BEAN ):
  • Boot into recovery
  • Wipe everything (except your SD-Card/Storage of course)
  • Flash the 4.1.x ROM (ga pps & superSU are included)
  • Boot up your phone
  • SetUp everything
  • Now to be safe, make sure recovery is installed, this is rather optional, but better safe then sorry. Takes less than a minute.
  • That's IT 
Replace superuser with supersu and vice versa:
  • you need to remove the superuser/supersu.apk from system/app
  • Then boot straight into recovery
  • wipe dalvik/cache
  • flash or 
  • reboot
  • open app to update binaries
