Update Samsung Galaxy S Advance I9070 with I9070XXLQG Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean - 29 June 13

A new official update, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with build version XXLQG, recently rolled out for the international version of Samsung Galaxy S Advance bearing model number GT-I9070.

The latest official build is a completely unbranded version of firmware and originally for the users from Italy. Users can grab the update through the Samsung KIES server. Those belonging to supported regions can also install the update manually using Odin flashing tool.

Firmware details

PDA: I9070XXLQG

CSC: I9070ITVLQ3

Version: Android 4.1.2

Build date: 29 May, 2013

Country: Italy

Region: Europe

Galaxy S Advance users who failed to install the update using official method may follow our step-by-step guide to install Android 4.1.2 XXLQG Jelly Bean manually.

Before installing the firmware, users are advised to ensure that their devices meet the following requirements.

Pre-requisites

1) Install USB Driver for Samsung Galaxy S Advance to transfer files between the Android device and the computer.

2) Enable USB Debugging Mode on the phone to connect the Android device with the computer and use the Android SDK with it. [Press Menu>> Settings>> Applications. From there navigate and click on Development option and then check the USB Debugging Mode.]

3) As the tutorial is likely to wipe out all data of the phone, create a backup. If the device is having any custom recoveries such as CWM/TWRP already installed, then back up data using the recovery only.    

4) The Galaxy S Advance should have above 80% battery charge.

5) The device should be factory unlocked and not locked to a particular carrier.

6) The phone will lose custom firmware with the installation of official firmware. Additionally, it will lose custom recovery which will be replaced by the stock recovery.

7) The phone will no longer belong to a rooted version once official firmware is installed.

8) The Android 4.1.2 XXLQG Jelly Bean official build is compatible only with Samsung Galaxy S Advance GT-I9070. As applying this to any incorrect variant might brick the device, verify the model number of the Galaxy device by navigating to Settings>> About Phone>> Model number.    

Steps to install Android 4.1.2 XXLQG Jelly Bean on Samsung Galaxy S Advance GT-I9070  

Step-1: Download Android 4.1.2 XXLQG Jelly Bean official firmware for Samsung Galaxy S Advance to the computer

Step-2: Extract the downloaded zip file using Winzip, Winrzr, 7zip or any other extracting tool to get a file with .tar.md5 extension with some other files

Step-3: Download Odin3 v3.07 which will help to install the Jelly Bean firmware. Extract the Odin zip to get Odin3 v3.07.exe and some other files

Step-4: Switch off the Galaxy S Advance and wait for five to six seconds for the vibration to confirm the power off

Step-5: Boot the phone into Download Mode by pressing and holding Volume Down, Home and Power buttons together. A warning screen will appear, now press the Volume Up button to continue to enter into Download Mode    

Step-6: Run Odin3 v3.07.exe as an Administrator

Step-7: Connect the Galaxy S Advance to the computer using USB cable while the device is in Download Mode. Wait for some time until Odin detects the device. When the device is connected successfully, an Added message will appear under Odin. Also, the ID: COM box in Odin will turn blue indicating all the drivers are installed successfully  

Note: If the Added message does not appear, then try the USB port at the back of the computer. In case Odin still fails to recognsie the device, then re-install USB driver.  

Step-8: Select these files extracted from I9070PXXLQG folder to install on the phone

a) Click the PDA button and select the .tar.md5 file

b) Click the Phone button and select file with Modem in its name

c) Click the CSC button and select the file with CSC in its name

d) Click the PIT button and select the .pit file

Note: Ignore the last three steps (b, c and d) if such files are not found.

Step-9: Verify that Auto Reboot and F.Reset Time checkboxes are selected in Odin window. Also, ensure that the Re-Partition option is unchecked; select it only when a .pit file is being used

Step-10: When everything is set, hit the Start button in Odin. The installation process should begin now and would take few minutes to complete

Step-11: Once the installation process is completed, the phone will reboot automatically. And soon a PASS message with green background will appear in the extreme left box at the very top of Odin indicating successful installation. Now safely unplug the USB cable from the phone to disconnect it from the computer

Samsung Galaxy S Advance should now be updated with Android 4.1.2 XXLQG Jelly Bean official build. Head over to Settings>> About Phone>> Firmware info to verify the new software version running on the device. Additionally, re-configure the APN Settings to avoid data networks connection issues. Also change the default language to your desired language by selecting Setting>> Language and Text input.

How to Fix Bootloop Issues

1) While installing the firmware if the PASS message does not display (step-11) or the device gets stuck for a long time, then disconnect the phone from the computer. Remove the battery and re-insert it, check the USB connection, re-install the USB driver and disable KIES. Enter Download Mode and repeat the whole procedure.

2)  If bootloop occurs or the device is stuck in welcome screen logo, then boot the phone into recovery mode. To do so, press and hold the Volume Up, Home and Power buttons together. In recovery mode, perform data wiping task by selecting Wipe data/factory reset then select Wipe Cache Partition. Reboot the phone in normal mode by selecting reboot system now. When the phone boots up, it should be running on the official build. In recovery mode, use Volume keys to scroll between the options and use the Power button to select the particular option. Performing wiping task will erase the internal memory of the device.

What users complain about Android Jelly Bean Problems- Issues

Problem: Wi-Fi dropping or not connecting

We’ve seen this problem reported widely on a number of Android devices. The common thread for some people seems to be the update to Jelly Bean, but different version updates have impacted on different devices. There are a lot of potential reasons that Wi-Fi issues can occur and it might be due to your specific router or the settings on it. If you find that your device is unable to connect to a Wi-Fi network, or keeps dropping the Wi-Fi connection, there are things you can try.

Possible solutions

Try turning the router and the Wi-Fi on your device off. Tell your device to forget the details of your Wi-Fi network. Hold down the power button and restart it, or shut it down completely and then turn it back on again. Turn the router back on again. Turn Wi-Fi on your device on again and enter the details afresh.
Try going to Settings > Wi-Fi > Menu > Advanced on your device and make sure that “Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep” says Always. You can also try unchecking the box next to Avoid poor connections.

Problem: Random rebooting or freezing

If you find your phone keeps freezing or crashing and rebooting itself after a Jelly Bean update then it could be caused by an incompatible app. The problem is that your software has been updated, but the app hasn’t. It could also have been caused by a bug in Jelly Bean – Google released 4.2.2 and it was supposed to fix a number of bugs including the random reboot issue. If you’re still having problems there are a few things worth trying.

Possible solutions

Your first port of call is always just to hold down the power button and turn your device off completely and then wait a moment and turn it on again.
Check which apps are running in Settings > Application manager on the Running tab. Remove them one at a time and wait to see if the rebooting or freezing problem occurs until you find the app responsible. This solution can be annoyingly time-consuming.
Do a factory reset by going to Settings > Backup & reset > Factory reset. Enter your pattern, password, or PIN when prompted, then choose Erase everything. Keep in mind, this will actually erase all content on your phone and re-install a fresh version of Android. Backup anything important.

Problem: Poor battery life

Complaints about poor battery life are common for smartphones generally, but some people have complained that their device’s battery life has been noticeably worse after upgrading to Jelly Bean. This could be down to specific apps or services. If you find that your battery is draining faster than it was before, then try and reboot first. If that doesn’t help, try the steps below.

Possible solutions

Go into Settings > Battery and take a look at what is draining the power most. Some people reported an increase in battery life after switching off Google Now, or Google Wallet and NFC functionality. Perhaps you have another app running in the background that’s eating more power than it should. If so, you’ll find it here, and you can deal with it.
It could be because your device is connecting to LTE or trying to. You can change this in Settings > More settings > Mobile networks and select your Network mode.
It could be a reading fault with your microSD card. Try removing it and see if the problem persists. If it works then backup the contents to your computer and reformat the card.

Problem: Bluetooth not working

Google confirmed that version 4.2 of Android contained a Bluetooth bug that can disrupt audio streaming. If you’ve experienced issues with your Bluetooth functionality after upgrading to 4.2, then that’s the reason.

Solution: Google released a fix in version 4.2.1. You need to upgrade to get your Bluetooth working again. This is, assuming it’s possible

Problem: Missing December

A high profile gaffe saw December missed out of the People app calendar on Nexus devices in the 4.2 update.
Solution: It was restored in version 4.2.1.

If you find alternative fixes for any Jelly Bean issues then please do share them. Check back again, as we’ll update this roundup over time.

How to Install Facebook Home On Any Incompatible Android Phone

We have already informed you about the new Facebook Launcher which will turn your smartphone to a Facebook-oriented device but all of the Android handsets are not eligible for this new makeover as one of the Social networking giant Facebook Authority has officially restricted this new invention to only 5 high-end smartphones available in the market as of now named HTC One X, HTC One X+, HTC First, HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S3 and the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphones. We are getting mixed reaction from the Facebook addicts all over the world and we can understand their agony, still if you are able to download Facebook Home launcher apk from any unknown source you still need to know the procedure to install this launcher successfully on your incompatible Android devices.


For all of our fans & followers, we are elaborately discussing the procedure beneath and we hope this will help you to configure your device properly to taste the essence of new Facebook Home Launcher. Well, this guide will surely inspire you and firstly we’d like to thank Android developer Paul O’Brien of Modaco, for his strains that made possible to bring Facebook Home available to all Android devices and the best thing is, you do not have to root your devices to give Facebook Home a try and those folks who have rooted their devices already, this will work for them also. Most importantly, before beginning the procedure, it is mandatory to have minimum Android v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS installed into you devices.

Note: If you need to root your device, do it at your own risk as casual approach can cause permanent damage to the OS of your device and can brick your device. We never encourage the users to root their devices for using unauthorized applications.


To install Facebook Home on your Android smartphone, you need to do first

Update your device to Android v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or higher.
Uninstall the Facebook app and Facebook Messenger app if already installed on your device.
If your device has Facebook and Facebook Messenger applications factory installed then you must root your device in order to uninstall them from your device.
Afterwards, on your device go to Settings > then Security > and under Device administration, check the box beside of “Unknown Sources”.


After doing all these pre-configuration, simply do the followings


  • Download Facebook application (com.facebook.katana.modaco.apk) by Modaco from here.
  • Download Facebook Messenger application (com.facebook.orca.modaco.apk) by Modaco from here.
  • Download patched Facebook Home application (com.facebook.home.modaco.apk) from here.




You can directly download the above applications on your device or you can download those onto your PC or Laptop and after that you can copy them from the source and paste them on your Android device’s internal or external memory. After following all the steps mentioned above successfully, you need to go to the file manager to locate the files.

Now follow these installation steps carefully to install Facebook Home on your device successfully.

After spotting the required three apk files on your device, you need to install Facebook application (com.facebook.katana.modaco.apk) first.




  • Afterwards, select the Facebook Messenger application (com.facebook.orca.modaco.apk) to install it.
  • Then, click on the Facebook Home application (com.facebook.home.modaco.apk) to install that finally.
  • After successful installation of those three applications, you will discover three new icons appear on your device’s Apps list named “Facebook”, “Home” and “Messenger”.







  • At this time, open the Facebook application by clicking on that and when prompted enter your credentials and log in.
  • After successful log into your Facebook account, tap the “Menu” icon located at the top and go to Accounts >then App Settings > and check the box which says “Enable Facebook Home”.




  • Now, a prompt notification will appear on the screen asking you to complete action; just select “Home” and tap on “Always”.




Done! You have successfully integrated Facebook Home onto your Android device. Just keep your patience for few seconds to load the Facebook Launcher up and when it completes you will have a new look & feel appeal of your device with a completely new UI.


You can now enjoy your own new personal Facebook smartphone anywhere with always connected features to your favorite social networking life of Facebook. You will also able to play with the new Chat Heads feature at the time of chatting with your friends on Facebook.

We have successfully tested the above method on Micromax Canvas 2 A110 powered by Android v4.1 Jelly Bean OS and it worked perfectly. You just need to follow the above steps carefully in order to install Facebook Home successfully on your own device. Do not attempt any other means to install those above downloaded files as doing such can also damage the OS of your device.

Adding Your Company’s Mail Exchange Server to Your Cellphone Enables Remote Data Wiping Erasing

Adding Your Company’s Email Synch/ Microsoft Exchange Server to Your Cellphone Enables Remote Wiping

You had IT set up Microsoft Exchange Server on your personal phone so you could get corporate email and stay in touch. You also, likely unbeknownst to you, gave them the power to remotely control and wipe your phone.
If you've linked your personal smartphone to your company's network via their Microsoft Exchange Server you need to be extra diligent about backing up your data to your personal computer or syncing it to the cloud. In doing so you gave them the power to control your phone from afar, turn functions on and off, and nuke it from space. NPR reports:
The phone doesn't need to download any new software. All that's necessary is for the phone's user to configure it to receive e-mail from a Microsoft Exchange Server - the kind most big companies use.
Once that's been set up, an IT department has the capability to wipe the phone and turn off functions like Bluetooth, the Web browser and even the phone's camera.
"The reason why you see such a long list of various policies and controls is because different organizations want those controls," says Adam Glick, senior technical product manager for Microsoft Exchange.
He points to the peace of mind the system offers to people whose phones have been stolen, and who can rest assured that all the personal information contained inside can be erased from afar.
Glick says employers sometimes need remote control of other functions, like the camera, to prevent leaks. "If you're having an important meeting about the future finances of the organization and people put that up on a slide, and someone might take out their camera phone and take a picture. And then they might go and, say, post that to the Internet," Glick says.
If you're thinking that sounds like a far fetched scenario that wouldn't affect most people, consider how a simple toggle in the upgrade of a Lifehacker reader's corporate email server altered his phone.
If your company has an up-to-date Exchange server, merely adding your Exchange-based work email to your iPhone also enables a remote wipe option.
I first discovered this when my boss (the network admin) upgraded Exchange and accidentally disabled all of our phones' camera features (since "disable camera" was the default for some reason). Exchange can also enforce passcode complexity and change frequency requirements, and/or force you to enable the feature that wipes your phone if someone repeatedly enters the wrong code.
There's also an option to remotely wipe all data from the phone at any time. If your company has the Outlook Web App configured, you can view which devices have access to your email and wipe any of them remotely yourself.
While these features exist for a reason (such as wiping a phone with sensitive corporate data when it is reported missing) that doesn't change the fact that an accidental activation could wipe your personal data. Back up your contacts, photos, and other personal data on a regular basis to ensure such accidents don't deep six your data. Visit the link below to read the full article at NPR.

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

With our tutorial given here, you can flash your Galaxy S advance phone GT-I9070 with official Android 4.1.2 firmware.

  1. Download XXLPY JellyBean firmware for Galaxy S Advance from here (resume, download manager-supported mirror link), or here (hotfile). (Both the links are for the same file so download only one. The resume supported 1st link is highly compressed in comparison to the 2nd hotfile link, but after extracting, both these links produce the same file of same size). Update: Recently, another Jelly Bean firmware for Galaxy S Advance has been released. The latest one is XXLPZ which can be downloaded from here (hotfile). You’ve to download either XXLPY or XXLPZ.
