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.

Galaxy Unpacked: What is Samsung Going to Unveil?

Amidst all the hype of the OnePlus 2 and the rain of Moto 2015 news, Samsung tried stealing the limelight back to itself by announcing their next "Galaxy Unpacked" event, which will be held on August 13th 2015.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
