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.

Best of Matias Duarte – “Ask Me Anything” Summary

Matias Duarte, VP of Design at Google, is perhaps one of the most prolific software designers of recent times: Material Design, the highest exponent of Android beauty, is Matias' own brainchild. Without him and his creation, the biggest Android update of all time wouldn't have been what it was and our favorite platform would still carry a look that many deemed outdated even before Material Design was shown.
