Install Leaked Samsung 4.1.2 XXLSJ Firmware on Samsung Galaxy S2

30

Samsung’s promise to bless the Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-19100 with the latest Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean Firmware update has given a new reason to the owners of the phone to entertain it for a longer time. There had been so many rumors and reports foretelling the possible release date of this firmware for S2 for a few weeks, but we do have yet any update rolling out.

The recent leak of an Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean test firmware I9100XXLSJ at least stores an assurance that the official release is at hand. We have been informed by a Samsung source that the Jelly Bean update to the Samsung Galaxy S2 will not be coming before January 2013 due to the recent vulnerability issues with security in the new Jelly Bean firmware. So it a long time to wait!

But now we have got hands over the leaked test firmware that you can install on your Galaxy S2 and enjoy Jelly Bean till the official release arrives. The firmware can be flashed using Odin method that has been described below. Besides the leaked test firmware we also have a rooted version of the same firmware with root injected. You can download any of the firmwares and and flash it with the same procedure.

Firmware Details:

This is a firmware for Unbranded internationAL version of the Samsung Galaxy S3. Therefore it can be flashed on any S3 (from any country (region) that is not locked to a network/SIM.

Make sure you make a backup ROM before flashing just in case you need it, if you go wrong somewhere being a noob. CWM compatibility would be added soon to the firmware and this post will be updated.

  • This is 100% stock leaked firmware with root and SuperSU injected.

    Thanks for the reply. I will soon flash the leaked ROM. I would like to know about flashing custom roms, rooting and un rooting. Please let me know where I can get such information.

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Yes, you will but you can regain the warranty by flashing the official firmware. You can go back to ICS any time: http://droidviews.com/2013/how-to-downgrade-firmware-on-samsung-galaxy-devices/

    I still have 10 months warranty remaining so don’t want to risk anything.
    And after flashing the leaked ROM, is there any way to go back to the Stock ICS ROM?

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Yes, it does. Enjoy!

  • Daniel

    Works like a charm !!!!!

  • PaFKaTa

    Yep, it’s working this way, thank you very much!!!

  • PaFKaTa

    Thanks for the fast response. I found where my mistake was – I plugged the MicroUSB cable not directly to the usb port of my computer. After doing this all worked fine. Untill now, I doesn’t found a bug on this release. Thanks!!!!

    This file does not need to be extracted. Just click on PDA and select it.

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Well, this method is tested by me and others. Anyways, I repeated the procedure again on my Galaxy s2 (added screenshot above) and it worked fine.I do not know where you have made a mistake. I will only advice you to go through the whole procedure again with more carefulness.

  • PaFKaTa

    Now I tried with the non-rooted files and I become the same error.

  • PaFKaTa

    Hi,

    I downloaded the rooted files, but
    I don’t understand how to do this
    “Extract the zip to find a file with .tar.md5 extension.”
    I have only “i9100XXLSJrooted.tar” and when I unzip it i become a folder with these files:

    boot.bin
    data.img
    factoryfs.img
    hidden.img
    param.lfs
    Sbl.bin
    zImage

    So, please give me an advice how to find/do/ this .tar.md5 file.

    Thanks in advance!

    Worked like a charm.

    Hi Simon, in fact I wrote the guide for the rooted firmware initially. Later I added the official leaked firmware too but forgot to write steps for it. Sorry, the post has been updated now and you can install the leaked firmware with the files you have. Enjoy!

  • Simon Oram

    Hi, I’ve downloaded the firmware folder and extracted it, but don’t have a .tar.md5 file, just a .md5 file that is very small. It is CHECKSUM.md5. Other file n the extracted folder are – CODE_I9100XXLSJ,
    CSC_HOME_OXX_I9100OXXLS1 (i’m thinking this is the one that needs to be in ODIN), emmc_EXT4_16GB.pit,
    emmc_EXT4_32GB.pit, & MODEM_I9100XXLS6
    Any help would be appreciated! Simon

  • Bob

    Thank you so much

    Hi Bob, if you are coming from a custom ROM to this Firmware, you need to do a Wipe data/factory reset in CWM or stock recovery. If you are going to flash it on stock ICS firmware, you need not do it.
    As for internal sd card wipe, the answer is “No”. No data from the sd card is deleted. But the contacts, messages, settings and apps will be deleted, so backup them in advance.

  • Bob

    Does your internal sd get wiped when you do this
