Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is the talk of the town today and there are genuine reasons for this too. The update brings a number of features and enhancements, such as

. smooth interface,
. advanced search function,
. Google Now for automated information,
. better Android keypad, and
. improved notification menu.

Unfortunately, this update might not make it to all Android devices, but thanks to the hardworking folks at XDA Developers, almost everyone can get a taste of the update, including Samsung Infuse 4G SGH-1997 users. You can thank developer scott.hart.bti for bringing the unofficial CyanogenMod 10 to your devices.

Almost everything that works in Ice Cream Sandwich works in this ROM, but there are still a few issues that the developers are working out, such as the GPS being laggy or freezing when it is used and Project Butter being uncooperative. Rest assured that the developers are hard at work, so these issues should be fixed in no time.

  1. See I’m confused by this like many are. You say that you need to have clockworkmod recovery on the phone, installed for this to work. But you can’t make clockwork actually run without the phone being rooted first. I installed the clockwork rom manager and it doesn’t do anything and blatantly tells you that it needs a rooted phone to work. So when we boot in recovery all we see is the basic droid menu that says the zip file is invalid.
