Leaked FJ10 Test Build of Jelly Bean for Epic 4G Touch Now Available for Developers

It seems that the Sprint owners still on the Galaxy S II who did not upgrade to the HTC EVO 4G LTE or the Samsung Galaxy S3 are still due for an Android update. Just a few months ago and after MANY months of waiting and delays, Sprint and Samsung decided to release, the awaited ICS update for the Epic 4G Touch. This was received with open arms by the community, but it unfortunately came well after the announcement (and surfacing) of Google’s newest Android iteration, Jelly Bean. Being the grateful bunch that we are, the first reaction to ICS release was the expected “when are we getting Jelly Bean?” A few AOSP builds started surfacing, which are fully functional (minus a few bugs here and there), but nothing for those who want something that resemble stock.

A couple of weeks ago, XDA Recognized Contributor sextape announced that he and his team got their hands on the first official JB leak for the device, FJ05, but this was never released due to potential security issues. Shortly after, FJ10 surfaced and it was kept under the same veil as its predecessor due to similar concerns. Just a few days ago, the team decided to make it public. The ROM itself, according to some of the feedback is very, very smooth, which leads some to speculate that this build actually has Project Butter in it (however, unconfirmed). Having said that, the leak seems to be in a very early stage, as it is ridden with bugs which include random reboots, over heating, no 3G, and several other minor bugs. On top of that, the only way to flash in and out of this build is through Odin. This cannot be flashed from mobile options such as recovery or even Mobile Odin. Also, the ROM is not rooted in its current state, but several devs are working towards trying to release a rooted, more stable version of it.

Please be wary when flashing this build and make sure that you read through the feedback and recommendations in the thread. Having said this, if you decide to go forth, happy flashing!

 Hello There After much debated within our team we decided to release this for public testing!!

The official jelly bean for the epic4g touch can be found here.

You can find more information in the original thread.
