    Default JellyBean Sucks!

    I knew it but damn me, I updated and man this update blows, kills battery, vznav is slow or force-closes, email will not sync, browser is slow and crashes often, keyboard is as bad as my old DroidX. Im not the only one by the other posts. I shoulda known better, time and time again this stands true. If it aint broke dont fix it, now samsung fix all the broken parts! Anyway, how do I revert to the last ICS before this jellybean junk

    Section 5 here:

    Perhaps a factory reset would be easier than that and it may solve some of the issues. At least it wouldn't be any worse than what is in that linked thread and may actually work.

    Once you get back on ICS, download an ICS ROM and install it. That will prevent the auto updates back to Jelly Bean.

    To the OP: With all due respect, JellyBean doesn't suck. In fact, the current version of JB for the Verizon S3 doesn't even suck. Trust me, I've been running it for quite a while.

    What sucks are OTA updates. On any phone. I honestly can't believe that Verizon still does *major* updates in this fashion. OTAs may be good for minor updates and patches, but for complete version upgrades, they should require using KIES (or something similar) to install and/or at the very least force a factory reset prior to installing.

    I can *almost* guarantee you that doing a factory reset on your phone, even if that is a real PITA, will probably solve 90% of your problems. Data gets corrupted when during updates, and apps tend to start doing crazy things. I'm sure Verizon doesn't force a factory reset because everyone would complain to no end about it, but I'd have to image they'd greatly reduce the amount of CS calls they must get following a major update like this one. Just my 2.

    It's Jelly Bean. It's lean, it's mean, it's based off the official link and battery life is phenomenal. If you are able to root and don't mind doing it, I HIGHLY suggest it. You will not be sorry.

    I have the same issues. After the jb update some of my apps don't work correctly, the keyboard sucks etc. I did a factory data reset but its still on jb 4.1.1. I would really like to get back to ics. Any help would be apppreciated.

    Read the reply post a couple above. There is a link on how to flash back to ICS. If you dont mind redownloading apps you could do a reset/wipe. I might end up doing that as well

    Honestly I am so tired of people saying jelly bean sucks. Jelly bean is ten times the os ICS ever was and the main reason has to do with project butter. I had ICS on my s3 for the first week but I could not stand it anymore it was laggy and stuttering all the time. When you experience jelly bean without bloatware and stupid carrier skins you would change your mind in a heartbeat. I'm sorry but we need to move out of the days of slow and laggy gingerbread and get to the point of stability like iOS and WP8. Android is about 95% there and nobody in their right mind experiencing real and clean jellybean would ever go back. It is like night and day! [RANT]

    You need better hardware. The OEM is just trying to keep you (the majority) happy. And why my daughter loves JB on her sgs3? IDK....saw you have a droid x in your devices. If you have a sgs3.....then wipe.

    So if jellybean is better then why was the option of moving apps to the sd removed?

    Maps is using a ton of battery on my phone now even without using maps or nav? Is this from Google now tracking everything? Anyway to still have it work without sucking so much battery? Thanks

    I always look forward to these posts after a new update. Everyone knows that if you have major problems, you do a factory reset. That's just the way it goes. And if they are simple problems, that doesn't mean the update sucked, it means you have to do things a bit differently. Overall new updates ALWAYS make the phone better. You may not want to take the necessary steps to make it a good experience, but that's your decision. Either you do those things, or you deal with the frustrations. Whatever you prefer.

    Don't get me wrong, I know that updates can be frustrating. But ultimately it's like getting a new phone. When you get a new phone things are always different. By now, you should expect that when a big update is coming.

    Not sure its JB. Maybe its the OTA update or not being rooted cause CleanROM 5.5.1 on my device and 20 - 23 hours of battery with most of my activity being camera, phone calls and word with friends. This is the first phone I can actually make calls all day and use the camera upload to google+ sports updates and still make it home without worrying about plugging it in until I go to bed.

    Well, kicking and screaming but I did a reset (several) and things get a bit better. Though its only been 24hrs so we'll see if the marginally better persists or if a ICS reflash is needed. I have flashed back from HoneyComb to Ics to JB and back in between on my Xoom and I'm kind of weary about flashing custom roms. But anyway so far so good, well so far so ok......
