    the phone I use when in Italy has everything else blank in the APN settings except MCC, MNC and authentication type but I don't think those need to be entered.

    I see in the list of APN's ( apns-conf.xml ) linked by imnots on the Developer's Forum to Pastebin ( ), he shows the Wind Italy APN to be exactly what I'm currently using:

    <apn carrier="WIND WEB"
    mcc="222"
    mnc="88"
    apn="internet.wind"
    type="default,supl"

    I see there's a Build 2 of Jelly 'Beans' out but when I download the zip file and "Extract Here" using 7-zip, I just get the folders from the compressed file and not the tar.md5 file like I did with Build 1.

    It looks like I'm missing a step somewhere with this zip file but haven't quite figured it out yet. Can anyone provide some help or a good thread on how to describe doing this? Thanks!

    For build 2 i believe it requires an unlocked bootloader and a custom recovery. You are suppose to place the zip file on your sd card . Turn off your phone boot into the custom recovery then flash the zip file and this loads the rom onto your phone. I have been away from a computer the last couple of days or busy so I have not done any write up but ill try to get some up this week.

    Oh, okay. That makes sense. So, it sounds like I'll need to follow the instructions over at XDA on how to unlock my bootloader and then I'll be able to flash the ROM from my SD card.

    DroidXCON. Have you tried the jelly bean ROM? Is it worth trying?

    Default Re: [How to][VZW GNote2] Root/Rom via Odin w/video

    Thanks for the Writeup and offered assistance. I was able to get things going in the right direction.

    1. Odin does not recognize my device if plugged in after Odin is already open. I have to plug in device and then open Odin for a Com port to be recognized.
    2. "SAMSUNG" Splash screen is extremely glitchy and pixelated
    3. "Google+ has failed" keeps popping up. I am able to get into Play Store and download updates to apps. But nothing Google related works, this includes Gmail as well as other Email accounts

    4. CI605_I605VRLJB aka Revision 3 is the image I am using
    5. Was going to try and use Rooted_stock_VRALJB 4.1.1 12/7/12, but when I use it in Odin it gets stuck at "NAND wirte Start"

    I am not new to Rooting devices, but this one is def proving to be a thorn. I can see that the process isnt that difficult and i should have been able to do thsis with my experience, though limited.

    Sorry just seeing this now, Jelly beans build 3 is flashable through custom recovery and not through odin. I could make a flashable version for odin but the developers would not be very happy with me if i were to do that.

    I have followed the steps exactly, but in the Message section of Odin3 it states:
    <id:0/007>Added!!
    <id:0/007> Odin v.3 engine (ID:7)..
    <id:0/007> File analysis..
    <id:0/007> SetupConnection..
    <id:0/007> Initialization..
    <id:0/007> Get PIT for mapping..
    <id:0/007> Firmware update start...
    <id:0/007> y7zXZ
    <id:0/007> NAND Write Start!!
    and it hangs here - I have made sure there are no USB drivers installed, redid it and wiped factory (I unlocked already), but it will not move off this screen - my phone is stuck on Downloading.... DO not turn off Target...

    I do not know what y7zXZ is.

    Already rooted via ExynosAbuse, interested in unlocking. However if I could get 1) enhanced multi-window and 2) make the external/internal SD switch without unlocking I would because I'm OK with the stock ROM. #1 appears possible via the .apk recompiles discussed on xda (or here). It's #2 that seems to require an new ROM which requires unlock.

    I know it's your effort, but given that more than one person has problems with tabs having a single sectioned web page might be a good idea. But thanks for what you've done.

    Thanks for your hard work.

    Sounds like it could have been a download. y7zXz thing has happened to me and it was always because I forgot to unzip the file. Also were you closing out of Odin before trying to use it again? Odin will sometimes get locked in an error even if conditions have been fixed

    Is there another way to widen the range of multitasking apps other than recompiling the ones you want to run as multitask as soon on xda? What is the method to switch external with the internal SD other than unlocking? Is it some kind of flash without unlocking? Thanks.
