    No problems, so did you use that one? I thought you were going to try the Polish one found here

    Ahhh I couldnt find that one only could find the leaked version, im pretty sure they are the same thing.

    Downloading and ill flash this version. See if anything different, dont think it will be.

    Jellybean official: Alright so been using this for about an hour and wow, it makes a massive difference. Everything is super fast, its like the phone is on steriods. Would recomend flashing for anyone who likes official software. The nav bar is heaps better, lock screen has more options. Heaps more options in settings. All in all makes the phone heaps better.

    Yeah thats the one mate.

    And it just updates everything too, so you keep all data. Which is nice so I dont have to re-download all the bloody apps again.

    I think mine was set to that too, just then I unselected 'My Calendar' and 'My Tasks' in accounts which I assume are the Samsung ones and my Gmail ones still show.

    SO I have installed the polish version and no real changes except google now installed on it.

    So the leaked version and polish version seem to be exactly the same.

    Nice. I decided to try, and I got my phone into that Downloading... Do not turn of again!!! screen but for some reason Odin doesn't see it and show up the yellow bars it's supposed to.

    Possibly don't have drivers, am I OK to turn the phone off at this point?

    Had same issue, all I did was have the phone in normal so turned on, then you will see it pop up in odin, then I pushed the 3 buttons to put in download mode and that seemed to do the trick.

    Ended up getting Kies and installing it, unplug replug and it appeared but it's blue and not yellow.

    ***EDIT***
    Well it failed the first time so I thought the blue thing was the issue, turns out newer versions are different colours. Looks like it's working fine now. Fingers crossed

    ***Edit 2 ***

    Same it's pretty damned awesome. Issues I've had so far was it wouldn't connect to the WiFi at work, reboot and it did. All my accounts except for Google was not set to sync, went through the menu and enabled all of them, works fine.

    Happy to see that we can again change the other icons in the dock apart from all applications.

    Where's the best place to buy an LTE 4G right now?
    I saw one on Ebay go for $849.10 today and it was one that had been repaired under warranty already - WTF?!?
    My max bid was 780.- for it.. given they are available new for $799.- from mobicity... ($10.- off if you like them on FB)...

    Edit: But then again mobicity have no stock.. website says early October, but online support says "we have no ETA".... lol...
    Following some googling it looks like there's not much out there right now :)
