Flash Samsung Galaxy S Advance with Official Jelly Bean firmware

Finally after a long wait, Samsung has started pushing up Android Jelly Bean firmware updates for Samsung Galaxy S Advance users. This phone initially launched with GingerBread firmware didn’t even receive ICS update. The first country to get jellybean android 4.1.2 firmware update is Russia. Firmware updates for other regions like India, UK, US, etc will be released later, but why wait? With our tutorial given here, you can flash your Galaxy S advance phone GT-I9070 with official Android 4.1.2 firmware. So, if you’re like me, impatient and want to get your hands on the goodness of JellyBean, go ahead.jelly bean galaxy s advance 500x317

Requirements:

  • Fully charged Galaxy S Advance phone (I9070) – Make sure your phone is fully charged or atleast >60% battery capacity. (This doesn’t work with I9070P)
  • USB Data Cable.
  • Laptop/Computer
  • Backup your android phone because after flashing this firmware, we need to factory reset our phone.
  • Risk: Sometimes things may go wrong, so proceed at your own risk..

How to update Galaxy S Advance with Official Android 4.1.2 JellyBean Firmware

  1. Download XXLPY JellyBean firmware for Galaxy S Advance from here (resume, download manager-supported mirror link), Update 2: Official Indian Jelly Bean firmware for Galaxy S Advance has also been released, download it from here or here.
  2. Download ODIN for Samsung Galaxy S Advance from here.
  3. Extract the downloaded files in step 1 and 2.
  4. Turn off your phone.
  5. Now press volume down key+ home key + power button together simultaneously for few seconds until you get haptic feedback from your phone i.e. until your phone vibrates to enter download mode. Now press volume up key to confirm that you want to proceed ahead when asked to do so on the screen.
  6. Launch ODIN program on your computer. Make sure Samsung Kies program is not running on your computer at that time. If it is, just close Kies.
  7. Connect Galaxy S advance phone with usb data cable to your comuter.
  8. In ODIN program, you’ll see a box colored with com number indicated. In the log section of ODIN program, it’ll display Added message. This indicates that your phone is successfully detected by ODIN program.
  9. Click on PDA button and browse to the firmware extracted folder and select the firmware file.
  10. Hit on Start Button. You’ll see the download progress bar moving on your phone. Wait for sometime. Since this is major release, you might have to wait a little longer.
  11. After flashing everything, ODIN will reboot your phone automatically and display PASS message in its box.
  12. Done. When phone starts again, it’ll take time to start. It’ll display that Android is upgrading and optimizing apps.
  13. You’ll be presented with Set-up wizard where you’ll have to enter certain details, select your language, enter your samsung account details, etc.
  14. After completing everything, you’ll find that all your previous apps, messages, contacts are intact. Well, don’t be hopeful because you might face several problems like no network connectivity after flashing jelly bean firmware on Galaxy S Advance, or the UI screen very laggy, or excessive RAM usage, etc. To solve such issues and to experience speed Jellybean butter effect, you have to factory reset your phone. So, Switch Off your phone. Press Volume up key + Home button + power key together simultaneously to enter recovery mode. Use volume up/down key to navigate through the options and power key to select/execute a particular option. Select Wipe Cache here. Now select Factory Reset. Now Select Reboot. Galaxy S Advance will reboot in normal mode. After successful start, you’ll be again presented with Set-up wizard. Here, select English language first of all as the defaul will be russian. Now proceed as usual with other details.
  15. Done! Now enjoy and experience JellyBean on Galaxy S Advance phone in any country. Do tell us what’s new in jellybean for galaxy s advance. We’ve found speed improvement, RAM addition (about 100mb more RAM), Zoom support in Camera, Pop up Play support, Smart Dial feature, Shortcuts on Lockscreen, Nature UX Touchwhiz UI, etc. Unfortunately, Smart Stay feature is not there.

      Sir, I want to upgrade to 4.1.2. Is this need to root my phone?

      • No, you don’t need to root phone.. You can update without rooting by following instructions explained above..

        • I HAVE FOLLOWED THE STEPS AND IT WORKS FINE, UNTIL, I FOUND OUT THAT I CAN’T SET DNS. DO YOU HAVE ANY WAYS TO SET THE DNS? I HAVE TRIED USING APPS BUT IT DOES NOT WORK. USUALLY IT THE ‘SETTING’ MENU WHEN IT WAS A GINGERBREAD I CAN SET THE DNS, BUT NOW WITH THIS JB 4.1.2 THERE ARE NO OPTION TO SET IT. PLS DO HELP ON THIS. TQ.

          • To change DNS, you will have to root your phone using the tutorial mentioned here : http://techotv.com/root-galaxy-s-advance-jelly-bean-android-4-1-2-video/

            After rooting the device, use any app to change dns.. I hope this helps..

      :D

      • Download ODIN from the link given in the post..
        Flashing is risky process., but if you follow the guide as mentioned. You should be safe.. This tutorial is strictly for GT-I9070 model.

  3. Hi, i have updated my s advance phone, everythng done its working fine, bt i can’t change my IP address, it says unavailable, pls help me..

    • From where (which setting option) are you trying to change ip address and why?

      • yes, m trying to change IP, becoz I want to access internet from domain server so.

        • That’s what I am asking.. From where are you trying to change ip? In Aceess Point names? What’s the option name that you’re trying to change? You might be already connected to network resulting in failure to change ip address.. Disable packet data connection and then change ip address.. If you’re trying to change ip address in WiFi.. then just press and hold on the connected WiFi network and then select Modify Network config.. And then enter password.. Select Advanced options.. Scroll down and change DHCP to static and enter ip address.. and then save..

  4. Michael Palma says:

    Please help. how can I unroot my phone after doing this rooting?

  5. got it, thank u..

  6. I am Trying to download the Firmware but it’isnt Downloading it cancels the download in midway,
    What should I do?

    • We’ve provided two links.. Try from either.. There might be problem in your net connection.. The 1st link is resume supported so download via any download manager.. So, if it cancels in middle, you can start again from the same middle point..

  7. my phone baseband ver. is i9070JPLD3.
    can i update ?
    actually i am confused because your phone baseband ver is I9070DDLK2
    that’s why i’m asking

    • Baseband version doesn’t matter… just the model name should be same i.e. I9070 .. So you can update without any problem

  8. iIts not working the ODIN and not recognizing my device what should i do?
    and also its not downloading also in the phone?

    • fIRST, LET odin recognize your device.. For that, install Samsung Kies on your pc and connect your phone with kies.. Samsung kies will install the drivers required for detection of your phone.. Then close kies and run ODIN. It’ll recognize your device..

  9. sir,after loadig PDA file and i clicked on start button it is showing that “the parameter is incorrect” please help me what does it means…?

    • You might not have selected the downloaded file properly in PDA.. In your other comment, you’re still figuring out appropriate way to download, and in this comment, you’re already using ODIN? kinda confused.. Where are you exactly stuck?

      • no i downloaded from second link…after downloading that i extracted using
        winrar app… after seeing the video i did the same thing but after adding the
        extracted PDA file it is showing “the parameter is incorrect” with a dialogbox so what to do..?

        • That means you are getting error while extracting? This happens because the file was not downloaded successfully.. Download again.. Use the 1st link as the 1st link supports resume which means you can pause and resume downloads at any time..

  10. and i hv another doubt, how to download XXLPY JellyBean firmware for Galaxy S Advance fro first link that u hv given in step 1

  11. Thanx bro…
    Successfully updated…

  12. Hello iv tried to update and i have done as it was in the instructions and after saying pass on odin my phone didnt reboot or turn on. What happened to it ? plz help

    • Remove the battery and reinsert it.. Make sure your battery is charged.. Try to turn on the phone.. I hope you’ve flashed the appropriate file on GT-I9070 i.e. Galaxy S Advance phone and not any other model.

  13. How should I back up my files.or it’s going to back up automatically?

    • Your files, videos, pictures won’t be erased.. Your contacts, messages, apps will be erased after factory reset.. Export contacts to a file by choosing Import/Export option in contacts.. Backup messages using any app.. You can also backup apps using titanium backup or any other similar software from Play Store..

  14. yes i used the GT-I9070 my battery is fully charged and i used the file from the link in the discription and it still doesnt turn on no mater what i do.

    • Go to recovery mode by pressing volume up+home+power button together and tell me if you’re able to enter recovery mode.. Also try going to download mode.. If you’re able to enter any of the two modes.. In recovery mode, try factory reset option and then reboot.. If it still doesn’t start, try download mode and flash older firmware again..

  15. Uh my phone doesnt even turn on to any mode its like dead.

  16. It doesn’t go to Recovery-Mode.. My phone will not start, what should i do know?

    • Your phone is bricked.. Take it to service center.. I don’t understand why, because many other users have reported success with the update..

  17. Maybe you would know why did this happened?

    • In normal circumstances, this shouldn’t happen because several users and you can see in the video that I myself reported success with this update.. So, there must be something out of way in your case..

  18. Hi,

    I successfully upgraded my SGSA to Jellybean. Thanks :)

  19. this is will reset my Language if i update my phone???

    • When you update, your language setting will remain as usual but we recommend factory reset your phone after update as mentioned in steps above. After factory reset, the language is changed to Russian but as soon as you start your phone for the first time, it’ll ask you to choose your language and you can choose the desired one.

  20. i have successfully upgraded my phone to JB.after this Kies doest recognizing the phone what to do….? and after doing Wipe Cache/Factory Reset also my phone is little laggy and while playing any game it will struct in middle and some time UI wont work properly and some time phone will restart automatically….plz help me how to come out with it…?

  21. Thank you so much. I did it exactly as you said it.. and works even faster than before!! :D

  22. Odin is not detecting my phone. I did everything that you said. I don’t understand my it is not working :(

  23. how to extract file in odin.?after i finish download XXLPY JellyBean firmware,when i tap PDA button i dont see XXLPY JellyBean firmware..how can i do..?please help..thank you very much!!

  24. and how to extract XXLPY JellyBean firmware..?sory because i not expert about handphone..hope you understand..

  25. One more thing sourab, you said after JB update phone performance will increase right??, in my phone RAM usage increased to above 520 MB, is it normal??

    • Did you factory reset your phone? After factory reset, RAM usage goes to about 300-400mb.. I said that total RAM was earlier about 550MB, but after JB update, you’ll see about 650mb RAM..

  26. nononono…thanx you very much bro because now i have update to 4.1 Jb..thank you!!!i dont know how to say thank you for you man..:)

  27. ya, i got about 625 MB ram out of that phone using 540 – 550 MB, and performance also little slow.. is there any solution? i did factory reset aslo, apart from that everything working fine..

    • Well.. I can’t really say anything about performance.. It depends on your apps and other things.. Also, Galaxy S advance is mediocre phone. You can just try to close unnecessary apps and check what’s is causing more usage..

  28. ok..cool, any way thanx a lot sourab..

  29. yes, i did buddy..

  30. i also want to update to jb asap. but can you tell me that it will void my warranty or not??? and is there any disadvantage of upgrading to jb?? because i am new to android just bought my fone 10 day ago. so that why m asking

    • Warranty issues – I can not confirm.. Every blogger has his own theories.. Some say that since this is official release, it should not void warranty, but I am of this opinion that since we’re using ODIN program to flash the phone and not the official Samsung Kies to update – Warranty issues may arise, but it depends – how they(service team) handle or you argument. When the official release will be out, you can flash again with the official firmware and so in such case warranty will be maintained. It also depends on Samsung Mobile service center and their support intention. So, I can not claim anything here. Proceed at your own risk. or you may ask Samsung customer care regarding this, but I think they’ll give you negative reply.
      About disadvantages of upgrading – well everyone has their own opinion. For some users, JB has increased performance, for some the opposite. Total amount of RAM has certainly incresed. Camera zoom feature is available on JB..

      • thaks…:) :) i got a new official rom from sammobile its i9070xxlpz. can i flash it on my mobile by your step??

        • Yeah.. xxlpz is also russian.. this new firmware is just released so if you’re going to flash this one, do leave your feedback/difference from xxlpy

        • ok.. sure.. now i m downloading the xxlpz. i will comment my feedback after upgrading till evening

  31. hey installation was succesful. while connecting to internet it say unable to connect network. please help.

  32. Hi..I have 3 questions…
    1) I have backed up my data using kies for my galaxy s advance. After flasing Jelly Bean as per the above steps, will i be able to restore the data using kies?

    2) will i be able to use kies with this phone after the upgrade?

    3) Also in your tutorial video, u said that there will not be mobile connectivity. Will i get mobile connectivity after i factory reset my phone from the recovery mode?

    • 1. Kies may not detect your phone
      2. Same as above.. although not confirmed because the phone is not now with me, so can’t check it personally.
      3. Yeah, you’ll get connectivity as I’ve checked it personally after factory reset.

      • Thanks…so which app can i use to back up and restore my data? i do not want to root my phone…

        • Search Google play store for sms backup and restore.., app backup & restore…
          GO to contacts on your phone and export contacts to sd card to backup contacts.
          What else do you need to backup?

  33. Thanks a gain…also..i have downloaded the firmware file…its shows as HOME_I9070XXLPY_I9070SERLPY_660490_REV00_user_low_ship.tar.7z. IS this the correct file? Or do i need to unzip it using winzip?

  34. And the size of the above file is 347MB. Is it the correct file? I used the first link you have mentioned above to download the file

  35. I’m from egypt does this firmware supports the Arabic language please feed me back….thanks

  36. if my language is Hebrew and i do the updatemy language still be hebrew?????????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  37. Dear,

    Thanks

  38. Please note a later firmware (XXLPZ) was released last night. This contain several bug fixes.

  39. Hi,

  42. I did it successfully! Thank you Saurabh… Please let me know how to make the device visible in KIES, Its not detecting now..

    • Try changing USB connection mode.. Also make sure developer option in phone setting is turned off. Well, it may not work in Samsung Kies for now.. When the official update for your country will be released. Flash it with that firmware and then it’ll be visible in Kies easily. Subscribe to our blog from the right side and connect with us on Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter to keep yourself informed of updates..

    • Yes, you can… Formatting is your choice.. If everything works well without formatting, then don’t do it otherwise format..

  47. Can I install titanium software. Your suggestions.

    • I think titanium requires root.. Read my other article about how to root jelly bean firmware on galaxy s advance..
      http://techotv.com/root-galaxy-s-advance-jelly-bean-android-4-1-2-video/

  48. I succesfully update mine to JB..Thank you Saurabh..The problem im getting now is the magnetic sensor goes wrong..The compass app i installed showed the wrong north direction..i tried to install another compass apps and still show the wrong direction..any ideas to fix it?Thank you in advance..

  50. HI

    Can you explain, what is the difference between XXPLY and XXPLZ

    • XXLPY was released earlier whereas XXLPZ has been released few days ago.. SO, XXLPZ is newer.. Some users have reported better performance with XXLPZ..

  51. do we need to install clockworkmod first before proceed

  52. thanks a lot dude……………..
    it works beautifully……

  53. I can’t watch youtube videos and online videos after i updated to jelly bean 4.1.2.Plz help me!!! I am waiting for your reply

    • Go to phone settings > mobile networks > Access point names .. And check it there is correct profile or make correct profile with apn..

  54. Thanks Saurabh for the tutorial. It works fine. Lots of features like CPU power saving, motion unlock, etc. Which are added make it really interesting!

  55. Sorry, but one last question, should i turn usb debugging on when flashing my phone? And do i get the firmware updates from russia(like OTA or with kies) or do i have to flash every update that is released in russia?

  56. it ok to use this firmware on malaysia ..

  57. Thanks Saurabh…for the tutorial. I’ve updated with XXLPZ. It works fine and the look & feel is nice. But my digital clock widgets are not updating time.It frozen after the screen lock. Is there any solution for this.
    Thanks in advance.

  59. plz can i get your phone number…. so i can ask sum douhts abt tis flashing… plz give me sir

  60. Hi saurabh just wanted to know that, is there any possibility to enable otg support in my SGSA with XXLPZ.

  61. while flashing if computer got shut down due to power cut.. wat will happen to mobile … ? plz,reply m waiting

    • In such case, mobile maybe damaged.. It takes about approx 15 minutes for flashing, maybe longer in some case.. So, Overall, you must have 30 minutes of power supply..

  62. sir smart stay means what…?

    • Smart Stay is a feature which keeps the display of the phone on as long as you’re looking on your phone. This is useful when you’re reading something on your phone as the display won’t turn off as long as you’re reading. This feature is not available in Jelly Bean Update for galaxy s advance..

    • 1. Yes, you can go back to ginger bread..
      2. I didn’t do anything like that.. But you may do so..
      3. it is 7z because it is compressed using 7-zip program. You need to download and install this program to extract it.
      4. There is always certain percentage of risk associated with flashing. SO, you either have to take the risk or just wait for official jellybean india update for galaxy s advance.. TO verify that you’ve downloaded the correct file, match the filesize.. After extracting, there is only one file you need to flash..

  68. my qs is flashing jb firmware will not gona harm my phone na? And if it will give us 11gb internal space on jb like gb give,is that enough to having lot of hd games? Can’t we use our ext sd card to put some hd data,games and play through it (mmc for playing purpose like we do put game data in our internal storage gameloft,data folder) ?and wid colectn of lots of game(here am talking aböut keeping dos games hvy data,big files) koz we can easily buy a 16gb memory card. . .

  71. First of all thanks for the Update Dude. :)

    I have tried this on my SGSA and it was working fine but performance is too slow…

    1) RAM showing only 625 MB as in GB it was 725 MB ( Correct me if I am wrong ).
    2) Hanging problem when shuffling between various App.
    3) Camera quality gets a bit low as comare to the previous version.

    It will be great if Saurabh would also share his experience with us on SGSA.

    PS. These all are my views & I don’t know about the others.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    • 1. If you’re going to do factory reset, you may like to use app backup and restore.. You may not backup apps.. You can just connect your google account and all your apps will then again be downloaded..
      2. TO revert back to gingerbread, the process is little complex. You can’t go back to gb just by flashing the gb firmware..
      3. yeah, after extracting firmware, the total filesize goes above 700mb.
      4. If it is of 7z format, you can use winrar or 7-zip program to extract it. 7-zip program is free to download..
      5. If firmware flashing process has started, then it may brick your device if you unplug your phone in between.
      6. Reset factory option deletes installed apps..

  78. dear saurav thanx to given me information abt jely bean. i want to say something abt jely bean i did update xxply firmware but it is not fast can u send me xxplz link.

  98. Subbarao Prabhakaran says:

    Saurabh,

    which one is suitable for updating my gt 19070P. You had answered No to a question from John.

  99. [...] posted tutorials on how to upgrade your Samsung Galaxy S advance phone with latest official Jelly Bean release, but few users were not satisfied with JB and wanted to go back to GingerBread. It gets touch [...]

  100. hye. may i know what is flashing? thank you..

  101. hay. i installed it on my phone ,and everything warks good thanks .
    my language was in hebrew ,and i dont now how to change it back to hebrew
    can i ?

  102. After updating to JB, I am not able to paste files in the phone internal memory, from my computer. I have even formatted the USB storage, but the problem continues… Pls help

  103. Is it compulsory to root the phone after updating it to JB? Also, if it doesn’t happen properly, will that brick my smartphone?

    • No, it is not compulsory to root phone…
      Flashing process is considered risky so things may turn undesired leading to bricking situation..

  104. hi Mr. Saurabh, whether it can be used in all countries? I am from Indonesia.
    What the Backup program do you use?
    thank you in advance sir

  105. thank a lot Saurabh.

  107. Worked like a charm!! Thanks

  108. Pratik Vasani says:

    To all those thinking about downgrade
    I suggest u try XXLQ4 VERsion of rom first
    Its the most stable jellybean for s advance.
    The file is available on sam mobile site firmware section choose country as Russia

  109. how is xxlq4 firmware?? is it better than xxlpz?? im not satisfied with xxlpz please reply sir.

    • I used xxlpy for a day beforee upgrading to lq4

      It doesnt have any lag with temple run and subway surfer
      Battery is similar to gingerbread

      No crashes or restarts. It happened tome with lpy.
      I think lq4 is the proper stable version for s adv.
      The only con is the dialer/contact app is nit laggy
      Maybe becauwe I have 1000 + contact.

      And as u must habe noticed with my typing I havebt got used ti new keyboard yet :)

      Overall its wiriing fine for me

      Not many new features

      Battrey life similar to gingerbread.
      Battery last 24 hrs with 2g data always on for whats app and email.

      It hqs no crashes .. lpy would restart my ph ones in a while.
      I think lq4

  110. Rahul Malhotra says:

  123. Hi!
    Succesfully updated to JB! I installed XXLPY but i want XXPLZ… “Can I install it again, with those instructions”

  124. saurabh i want to ask you that how to recover my data from phone again once i format it because as u said i will not be abel to connect it to kies again as it is not launched in india.so what is the other option bro

  125. I found a flaw here, for its installation or upgrade process went smoothly. but, perhaps because of the upgrade package is not available in my country (Indonesia) SIM Card connectivity it can not be optimal. that could only call and SMS only. I try to use Mobile Data to connect to the internet it can not.
    is there a problem here? because I also do not quite understand the Android version. what can I do? thanks in advance.

    • Create a new access point in mobile networks under phone settings and then net will work

      • but whether this also depends on SIM card in each country as well? I’ve already made the access point but still can not.

        • Depending upon network, you need to create access points.. Find out the apn from your network provider and set it accordingly on your phone.. Or download Tweakker app from Google Play Store which will set apn of your network automatically detecting it.

        • Hi Wahyudi,

          I also upgrade using latest firmware I9070XXLQ4. it is working fine. using XL Provider. Mobil data also fine.
          it was detected automatically.
          Problem is only sometime laggy especially for youtube or mivo streaming. I didn’t face this problem when using gingerbread.

  126. Darshak Kallola says:

  131. Hi. After I upgrade my SGSA with Jelly bean 4.1.2 . I have this problem .Baseband version is Unknown , IMEI is null/null. I type from dial pad *#1234# it’s show PHONE : Unknown but PDA and CSC is showed right. My SGSA’s origianl firmware is 2.3.6 (i9070ZCLH1) China. How can I fix this problem? Please help me.
    Can I fix this problem by installing it’s original 2.3.6 firmware?

    • Is your phone’s model number exactly I9070? If you’ll try to flash 2.3.6, it won’t work.. So, you need to follow the downgrade method here : http://techotv.com/how-to-downgrade-jellybean-to-gingerbread-on-galaxy-s-advance/
      and then you need to flash your original 2.3.6 firmware again to get back to the firmware on which you were earlier..

      • Thanks for your help. My phone model number is exactly I9070 (samsung galaxy S advance 16GB) . I will try as your advice. Sorry for my poor English Skill.

  147. hi Saurabh,
    im from Phillipines, is this update be applicable here (Phillpines)???co’z i’m waiting for this update for quite a long time….thanks….i’ll be waiting for your reply

    • Hi John,

      I’m from the philippines and flashed my samsung advance to JB. I downloaded the LPZ file. I was successful and didn’t brick my phone ( i thought i did because it took too long to start after updating it to JB even after a long press of the power button). I got the file from a different website but the procedure was the same as what Saurabh gave to this blog. JB eats a lot of RAM amd was lagging. I did a factory reset and had a bit improvement but the phone was lagging and slow. I just received the latest firmware from KIES with the LQ4 latest firmware. It was still slow. I encountered a few bugs but was able to resolve it by checking other forums. I will try to do a factory reset to see if there would be improvement. I just don’t want to do it now because i don’t want to re download my apps again and change the setting. The good side is that JB will extremely improve your phone. The screen was more vivid and crisper. The touch sensitivity was improved drastically exept when its lagging. The UI was so beautiful. It feels like i bought the a new phone even though the phone was over 6 months old. I just hope we’ll get a better update from Samsung next time.

      • Salamat Rhom…I really appreciate it…just have one question?. do all updated s advance are having that kind of problem???or that only happens because we haven’t get the update direct from samsung?…

        • Most of the users are facing problems playing videos.. These are updates official from Samsung so even if you get it direct from Samsung when it’s released for your country, you’ll face the issues most probably until the issue is officially fixed by Samsung..

      • Hello Rhom.

        Is your phone’s proximity sensor and Ambient light sensor working? after this JB update. Let me know, as it seems i lost both of them in JB udpate. Even i updated with latest LQ4 firmware.

        • Yes. Proximity and ambient light is working. My only issue was that the phone kept on freezing and became sluggish. But I became used to it.

  148. Hi Saurabh
    First of all, thanks a lot for all this procedure. It feels quiet good using Jelly bean on SGSA but to my utter dissapointment I couldnot find the Polaris Office app as in Gingerbread. And I need Office tools anyhow. What do I do…? kindly help.

  149. Please update post with note that this not working for i9070p so people not brick their phones like I did. After bricking I read in comments that it is not for i9070p.

    • We’ve mentioned the model number of the phone with which it works.. You should have asked before flashing your phone.. Anyways, we’ve added your request.

    Hi Saurabh,

    I have few of questions for you and I am sure you have the answers :)

    1) I have been going through a lot of reviews about this phone on the internet. I noticed that most of the people are complaining about the network connectivity issue in this phone. Does this phone really have this issue? Did you faced it personally?

    2) How is your overall personal experience after upgrading this phone to JB?

    3) The price of Galaxy S advance as dropped to 15k. Another decent phone in this price range is Galaxy S Duos with comes for 13K. If I compare compare both S Advance beats S Duos in terms of specifications. But the only drawback is that S advance comes with Gingerbread.

    **Galaxy s Advance (after upgrading to JB) or Galaxy S Duos (which comes with ICS),** which one will you rate better in terms of performance?

    Best,

    Sharad

  168. Hello Suarabh,

    I was able to successfully udpate my S advance to JB. But i see that proximity sensor is gone and is ot functioning. I also checked it from call settings. I also doubt that light sensor is also gone. Any fix for this?

    Regarding performance of phone, it’s a bit laggywhile playing subway surf/temple run. Not bas as Gingerbread. But a bit.

    Batttery life is shortened as well

    Inerface is cool far much better then GB.

    Sometimes it gets hang on occasions.

    I did all steps like factory reset, wipe caceh etc., as explained by you.

    Will there be any more version in JB for this s advance.

    But i want proximity sensor, and light sensor more than anything..

    Thanks so much for your response. awaiting for a reply…

    Kashif.

  190. Hello,
    my odin is not responding,when i click the”start “button..

  191. The Guru or Android Technology Mr Saurabh. Have a very important question for my device.I have bought my cell phone in Aug 2012 GALAXY S ADVANCE.
    Since then iam facing connectivity issues with the phone.
    My Phone details are:
    MODEL NUMBER:GT-I9070
    Android Version: 2.3.6
    Baseband VersionL I9070DDLK2
    Kernel Version:
    2.6.35.7-1211839
    dpi@DELL133#2
    SMP PREEMPT Fri Nov 16 14:20″37 KST 2012
    BUILD nuber: GINGERBREAD.DDLK2

    • You didn’t mention what kind of connectivity issue? Data connectivity or network or wifi or some other kind?

      • Data and Network Both
        Network goes off and comes sometimes.
        Sometimes it shows full network but actually there is no network.

        Data connectivity goes on and off in background still showing full network sign and 3G sign on my phone. But when i use internet it shows no internet connection.
        It happens randomly.

        • Have you ever tried factory reset? Factory reset solves most of similar problems.. But factory reset deletes all your apps, contacts, messages, etc, so backup important contents before doing factory reset.

      • Yes SIgnal/ Data Both
        I use 3G Connection.
        but my network goes off and come .
        It shows full network and 3G sign but still when i access apps .
        It says No internet connection avaliable.
        i have to restart phone or restart network.

  192. I missed my update and my phone will not turn on. How to relight?

  193. Hello,

    I just bought the Galaxy s advance and the first thing I wanted to do was upgrade to Jellybean. It took me a whole day to get reliable information on how to do the upgrade. Finally on the site and I followed the instructions. Everything went smoothly. Thank you very much.

  194. Dear Saurabh, I have successfully updated my device’s firmware, however, I cannot connect to the internet, although the network is connected. Every time I enter playstore, it says server error. Does this have got to do with the update to Jelly Bean? Or is it just the network problem? Thanks.

    • If you’re able to browse websites on your phone, it might just be network problem.. JB update doesn’t have network and data connectivity problems.. If internet is not working on your device at all, you should go to phone settings and check access point names configuration and make sure it is correctly set as per your network.

  195. If i already installed 4.1.2 on my s advance but the XXLPY Version,
    Can i Install the XXPLZ on it ?

  196. hello dre, i myself using galaxy note 2 and i have ordered galaxy s advance today itself…wanted to update it to jelly bean but after reading all the comments and the responses of the users , what i feel is that i should wait for the official update from samsung…
    as most of the users are facing some of the problems, or i can just give a try and if things dont work well than get back to its older version.

    • These are official updates so unless Samsung decides to fix the issues users are facing, nothing much can be done.

  197. as instructed by u i have downloaded everything u told to upgrade to JB update to sam s advance,but for rooting u told to download root.exe where can i find it.

    • root.zip not exe.. Full tutorial for rooting is given here: http://techotv.com/root-galaxy-s-advance-jelly-bean-android-4-1-2-video/

  198. i have an otg cable and a s advance with xxql4 jelly bean.tried many ways to connect just failed.any hope for otg in my phone??????:-(

  202. Dear Saurabh,

    Thank you very much for this tutorial it was really helpful. I updated to JB, it was laggy but after update to Q4 it improved a lot and then I rooted my device and installed seeder.apk, which fixes the lag and dxtoolbox which clears the ram efficiently and now my mobile is working like a charm buttery smooth.

  240. hi if i update my samsung galaxy s advance to the firmware that u have provided here in the link… will this void the warranty of my phone . is this the official update .
    i have downloaded the file from your website and have extracted it completely.
    i have downloaded this version XXLPZ.

  241. is it need to be rooted before update Samsung Galaxy S Advance with Android 4.1.2 JellyBean Firmware ????

    can i follow the same process for my …. Samsung Galaxy S Advance [Built-In 16GB] ????

    • No it doesn’t need root.. This process is for 16Gb SGSA I9070 model.

      • Thanks for the reply…….Saurabh dada

        if i dont root my device after upgrade and also wipe cache & factory reset from the recovery mode……. then how will be the performance ???

        • Rooting is not necessary.. But wiping cache and factory reset has been so far necessary otherwise you may face connectivity related problems or device lags, etc.

  242. Subbarao Prabhakaran says:

    Dear Sir,

But if they dont release it on the 26th i will flash it using ODIN. For that I just have 1 question. After you Flashed the Phone using ODIN did you Encounter any problems with it?

  248. how stop diz programm “Make sure Samsung Kies program is not running on your computer at that time”

  249. Hi Saurabh, at first thanks for your support.

    I attempted very carefully following the steps to upgrade my Galaxy S Advance, but it seems like it is bricked, as after all seven threads successfully completed, and 0 threads faile,d the Odin3 showed message “IDxx:Removed”, and then my phone did not start, i waited for a considerable time, cable still kept connected, but no response,, so i tried to start in recovery mode, Volume-up + Home + Power key, but no response,,,

    what do you think, is it time to say Ohh Shitt, :-)

    just wanted to seek your help. I also tried battery out and back in, but no difference. I am in Germany, going to Samsung Service center will cost me not less than the price of a new Galaxy S Advance.

    awaiting your answer with some useful tips. :-)

    Thanks in advance
    Fakhar Khan

  250. mor einformation:
    – Charged battery 100% full.
    – Kies was not running, i even closed all agents for Kies using Taks Manager Processes, to make Kies is fully down.
    – I used I9070XXLPZ_I9070SERLPZ file.
    – using Odin3.

    • Is your phone model I9070 or I9070P?

      • Fakhar Khan says:

        Hi Saurabh,

        Thanks for your response

        My Phone model is I9070P.

        was it wrong Model for the firmware Binaries ?
        I also guessed so.. :-(

        What do you suggest for me in this situation ?

        Best Regards
        Fakhar Khan

        • Yes, it was wrong.. I’ve already mentioned in the article itself that one should not try this with I9070P.. You need to get it repaired..

        • Hi Saurab,

          you are right, it is mentioned, I overlooked due to excitement.

          Thanks for all your responses.

          Best Regards

  251. What’s in this version can not screen capture? I’ve succeed install and run the factory reset, I continue to try to screen capture (home button + power button for a long time) the result can not.

    • This version can easily do screen capture, but many users like you find it difficult. It takes some practice to do it right way, but it works. Keep trying and you’ll master the method.

      • ok thank you sir, it must be true simultaneously while pressing the home button + power button it. when using the GB can be done after I hit the home button and then I press the power button (not at the same time directly). thanks sir. : D

  254. Dear Sourav,
    Still you have not replied to my queries.

    I have downloaded the XXLPY firmware from the links given by you. But before updating I am having some queries.
    1. What new features will be added after updation? Is there any video you have uploaded to show the new features?
    2. Will my Galaxy S Advance be visible in Google Play Store after this updation?

    • 1. Yes.. I don’t have the handset with me so I can’t create new video on it..
      2. Yes.. Since this is official firmware.. Everything will be as before. The only difference here is that this firmware is for Russia, but it works internationally for I9070…

  255. i hav already upgraded my phone to jb XXLPY version bt i m nw unable to upgrade its firmware…….

  258. Hey saurabh pls help me. .i have already upgraded my phone to jb XXLPY version And when i connect it with on my pc with kies it shows update i.e I9070XXLQ4 and i updated ……..i m from india But now when indian firmware of jelly bean is available i.e I9070DDULP8 i install with this firmware through odin…but now when i connect it with kies it shows that “YOUR DEVICE’S CURRENT FIRMWARE VERSION IS NOT SUPPORTED TO UPDATE FIRMWARE VIA KIES” ..NOW WHAT TO DO ..??PLS HELP ME…waiting for ur reply…..

    • Flash your phone with official Indian Jelly Bean firmware using the same method as described in this tutorial.. The download link for Indian JB firmware is added in the first step..

      • I already flashed with this method.but pblm is mentioned in previous comment..pls help me.

      • Pls read my comment carefully..

      • yaa he is right kies is not recognizing my phone after the indian update pls help

      • Hi Tarun, i had flashed my SG advance with russian firmware before. And now since Indian version of Jellybean was available..i flashed my phone with indian Jellybean version. So to connect your phone to PC via Kies, you will hav to upgrade kies which will support indian JB…connect your phone..let Kies detect it and then upgrade Kies software.

    osm dude i did it i works for y new s advance hz been updated by jb ureka

  275. Hello. Thanks for your great guide!
    I have not started the procedure yet, as I have some questions, that I would be pleased if you could answer.
    Firstly, what is the main diffirence between SERLPY and SERLPZ firmwares?
    I guess SERLPZ, right? Moreover, if anything goes wrong, will I be able to restore
    my phone? And if yes, how? Furthermore, there are some applications that are not compatible with this phone, for example Facebook home, will they be compatitible after the update? Last but not least, is it “legal”? I mean, is it allowed by samsung?
    I look forword to your reply.
    Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.
    Best Regards

    • Read the guide and other comments thoroughly to avoid any problems..
      The difference between the firmwares is their release date. The latter is considered to be more stable..
      You’ll be able to downgrade to GB..
      This is legal and is allowed. Your phone’s warranty is not void.
      Facebook Home will still be incompatible because sgsa is not compatible with FB Home officially, but there are workarounds to install FB Home on incompatible devices as well..

      • Ok, thank you for your reply.
        I successfully upgraded my phone :).
        Great Guide!
        However, I only face one problem.
        My phone says it has software updates, I download them, I install them, the phone reboots, but when it opens, it says the updates failed.
        I also tried via kies, with no results either.
        Any ideas?
        Thank you again!

    ” THNX My frnd .. all stuff working properly .. i upgrade my android with 4.1.2 in India….”

  297. today i upgraded s advance from service centre.but now it shows no network signal. and battery drains too fast. 50% battery drins in 30 minutes.
    what should i do for those problems? plz help me.thanks

    • Since the handset is not with me right now, I can not give you guaranteed solution. But 50% battery drain in 30 minutes is unbelievable. There might be something wrong with the battery.
      On another related note, To all those who’re facing battery and speed issue, you should try disabling data when not using mobile internet. OF course, this appears like compromise, but the mistake is from Samsung, which has not released stable, reliable or good Jelly bean update. Very poor after-sales support from Samsung for galaxy s advance.

  298. I downloaded half of the crashes, you can teach me how to continue updating

  299. Anoopkrishna says:

  350. Hello, thanks for tutorial, it works, just pay your attention on the steps and you will done it. There is some obscurity about getting into the Odin mode:
    1. First press the volume DOWN, then home button, and last is power button, hold for 3-4 seconds and it will arrive. When you finish, to do last step:
    2. First press volume UP, then home button and last is power button.
    If you press all of three buttons in the same time, phone will just restart, that’s the point. Thans a lot one time more, this is COOL.
