Nandroid Restore to the Latest Jelly Bean Leak for the International Galaxy S III
It’s been a big week for the Samsung Galaxy S III and its US variants. Not only has the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S III had its bootloader unlocked, but the International version got a Jelly Bean leak. This gives credence to the rumor that Samsung is releasing the update soon. However, many don’t want to wait that long. Now, there’s another way to get the leaked build.
XDA Senior Member Jack Barrett has re-released the leak in a useful manner for those wishing to flash without Odin or Heimdall. Instead, Jack Barrett has released the Jelly Bean leak via a Nandroid backup. In short, Jack Barrett got the Jelly Bean leak on the device, wiped everything, and made a backup. To install it is actually pretty easy:
How to install:
Extract the zip in SDCard –> clockworkmod –> folder (for example JB) –> files here
Go to CWM –> Backup & Restore –> Restore from internal storage
The ROM is NOT rooted.
You should root it yourself.
