Samsung sure has been on top of its game lately, as far as updates are concerned. Hardly a week has passed since I997UCKK1 was posted over at XDA, and we already have an updated build I997UCKK2, available as of a couple of days ago. By the time you flash one build, another one seems to be available…but who’s complaining? 🙂
Good enough to be a daily driver?? Well, you’re just gonna have to try it out and see for yourself. After all, with all the ROMs available these days, and flashing becoming an increasingly simpler process, I say, what’s the harm in trying it out?
- Installing/Flashing this ROM will erase your apps and data. So, it’s a very important you back them up, before proceeding further. To backup your apps and important data — bookmarks, contacts, SMS, APNs (internet settings), etc. Restore APN settings if Internet isn’t working for you. This Android backup guide would help you. And if you’ve rooted your device, you can save application data too, using Titanium backup (free app on android market) to backup apps with data. And use this this app again to restore those apps with data.
- If you have Samsung’s PC software Kies installed, un-install it first because it may interrupt the flashing process. If you’ve installed it for sake of drivers which otherwise weren’t working, make sure you exit the Kies completely before beginning the procedure below.
