    wifi works and connects but i cant seem to actually use it any ideas???

  • Brandon

    My clockworkmod recovery recently updated to version v6.0.2.7. Now whenever I try to flash a new ROM, such as this one, the phone hangs. I have never had an issue before the update. Can I go back to a previous version or have I missed something entirely???

    • cross 80

      I would suggest using darkside super wipe, or unroot your phone and root all over again that should bring you back to a clean phone, goodluck

  • paulinux

    same as brandon xda devs diferent instructions

  • Cody

    hmm.. after boot screen “ALL*DEVS” screen blacks out for a while. how long did you guys wait?

  • bobby

    Max, you’re awesome. Im sure i speak for many people on this, in your videos we would like to know/see before we install the ROM how the gallery looks, wifi calling, new settings, new features, camera, etc. Gallery & Camera are big things seeing they vary by ROM. it would just help out your followers to understand what they should/ should not install, before doing so. YOUR THE MAN MAX

  • paulinux

    ok this is what I did, on the instructions on XDA website, its says to do the TWRP RECOVERY RECOMMENDED!!!
    *Nandroid
    *Wipe data
    *Wipe system
    *Wipe Cache and Dalvik
    (Use Darkside SUPER Wipe if on cwm 5.0.2.7 or below) ———–I DID FROM THIS FORWARD—->
    *Flash Rom
    *Flash PA Pref zip found here—————– DOWNLOAD THIS AND FLASH IT
    THE ALL * DEVS it hangs like 1-2 mins then strats but like it says dont touch it
    *reboot and don’t touch for 10 minutes
    *reboot and let sit for 1 minute
    *Set up device
    THIS IS WHAT I DID AND USE AND ALSO CLOCKWORK MOD 6 did not work so I had to flash the 5 something and it works, so problably if you have 6 thats why not working, by the way wifi it connects by phone dont use it so just like warning but its great rom tho, ciao

  • Gus

    I had the same issue…flashed it..rebooted..everything looks ok, except for the Wifi…doesnt work at all..It connects, gets an IP etc etc…but it seems as the phone doesnt know what to do with it.

  • Paulinux

    Correction there is a post regarding wifi not working, I just follow it and works, turn on and off wifi 3 times, then airplane 2x and reboot, he said keep doing it until works, I did it once. Hope this helps, now it’s complete, great rom

    • Gus

      That’s quite a procedure…where did you find that link?

  • Paulinux
  • gus

    Quick q…there is a funny looking icon below the status bar…looks like a hat…what is it for?

  • Paulinux

    According to settings – rom control-toggles, is for swagger, don’t know what it means

  • Cody

    fixed it. i forgot to use cwm recovery n download the latest for my phone. after reboot, tried again worked flawlessly. i had no issues with wifi, works fine, great job to devs!

  • Gus

    I tried the same..still the Wifi only works if I set the value to fixIp but I can’t do that at work. It seems there are still issues with DHCP.

  • Steve

    Wifi works after restore Wi-Fi access points on Titanium Backup…but still issues with ecco callings…
    I used SwiftKey 3 for texting with friends in english and spanish…this ROM doesnt supported that, you can only use their keyboard. Going back to JMTX4

  • Paulinux

    I’m using wifi on my home only, don’t know how will respond to another access point, SwiftKey WORKS, im using it right now, you have to activate it on settings

  • Paulinux

    One more thing, most of the changes I want to do, don’t are applied right away, I have to reboot for every change,like the hat icon on task bar was removed it just after reboot right after doing change

  • Steve

    I agree,on few changes made, didnt work untill reboot system several times. Galaxy SBean its a nice ROM tho but, i still preffer JMTX4, i have no issues so far with that one. Still waiting for multi-window for SGH-T989 phones (who don’t)

    • cross 80

      That’s what I’m running and love it

  • Steven

    ROM stinks! Going back to mind trick

    • cross 80

      Completely agree, i have version 4 jedi mind, and I’m not updating lol this version is flawless

      • Steven

        The launcher will occasionally freeze but other than that it might be the best rom out there.

        • cross 80

          I usually try to reboot phone atleast twice a week, that usually does the trick for those freezes, but like you mentioned that’s the only issue, i don’t even mess with the cpu, i leave the cpu untouch, i did before and didn’t performed any better, battery life is awesome and phone is really fast paced

          • Steven

            You’re right on that. I also leave it as is and it’s a fantastic rom..

  • adnan

    Hi,

    Can anyone tell me how can i get that rom control on my Samsung T989 (jedi jelly rom)

  • paulinux

    rom manager? or clockworkmod?

    • adnan

      Hi Paulinus,

      I already have the premium version of the rom manager. But what do i do after that? And one more thing why my baseband version is unknown. Please help me with this.

      Thank You

  • Paulinux

    Hi adnan, it looks like your questions are for other rom, saw you at jedi jelly rom forum, we’ll all you have to do is: ROOT phone, INSTALL rom manager, most of the cases its clockwork mod flashed if not flash one from rom manager just click on flash clockworkmod choose ur phone and It Would install it, DOWNLOAD a rom for your phone, INSTALL ROM from recovery one of the options from rom manager, and enjoy it, now every rom change your phone diferent, I have version 4.1.2 and number would it change until and update from rom come up, there is no other updates, but keep looking on your rom, others roms change it to 4.03 but this version number it’s base on the android version the rom was created, hope this helps

    • adnan

      Hi,

      Thanks for replying. The thing is that I’m actually for a better rom. Right now i have jedi jelly rom. I liked the rom very much. So if u know better rom which has no issue like camera,reboot please let me know. I will really appreciate it if you can get the best rom.

      Thank You

  • Steve

    what Pailinux is trying to say adnan is: its your phone rooted? and if is not, follow MAX recomendations from home page “how to root your phone” and the “how to install a ROM from a rooted phone”. its a easy step by step process that you have to follow w/out shortcuts and remember NOTE: PLEASE ONLY INSTALL ROMS INTENDED FOR YOUR VERSION OF Galaxy S2! Otherwise you WILL BRICK YOUR PHONE

    • adnan

      Hi Steve,

      Thank you for replying. I followed every instruction carefully. And my phone is rooted. The thing is that my baseband version is unknown. So please tell me that is that a major issue that the baseband version is unknown.

      Thank You

      • Steve

        Adnan, do you have IMEI number on your phone?

        • adnan

          Yes Steve i have the IMEI number.

          • Steve

            That means that it’s Ok to try any rom that supports t989 phones… I have try probably like 10 roms already. =)

      • paulinux

        if you look on the screen shots of the developer, it also shows unknown, I think its normal, and again you are talking about jedi, right?

        • adnan

          Ok so the baseband version is ok. But you know I’m looking for a better rom. If you know anu better rom than jedi jelly then let me know. I tried liquid smooth rom i liked it very much but i had some issues like camer wasn’t working and there was no 4g. It had only 3g. This is why I’m scared to install a new rom. So you know if you know any better rom with no issues please let me know.

          Thank You

          • paulinux

            the first rom in this website that I’ve try, was jedi mind trick x3, I messed it up, then miui pretty nice, but way diferent from other UIs, then CM10 I’d like it pretty nice, fast, and 0 problems, then I’m trying this one, I’ll recomend CM10, but I’m having SBean rom for some features from jelly, but it requires lots of efforts, hope this helps

            • adnan

              Hi,

              When i looked at the CM10 rom I liked it too. I installed it but i had a issue with the camera. The issue was the picture wasn’t clear at all. And when i take a video it record only the colors like blue,red,green, etc. This is why i moved to Jedi Jelly. Now as you recommend me the CM10 rom i’m gonna install it. But before that let me know am i going to have the same issue with the camera.

              Thank You

              • paulinux

                may be was a bad download, my cam works great, actually I’d like it more because you have the esphere picture mode, sooo cool, I’ll go back to CM10 if got bored of this ROM, by the way there a V13, better. SBeam Rom

                • adnan

                  ok thanks you for helping me out

  • CAPO

    this rom sucks i love darkside it is the best

    • TheRealJhay

      Stop flaming and get off of the thread. Umad because you suck and SBean is the $h!t

  • blubase

    How do I change the DPI for the settings. I managed to change the stupid dual view UI but the DPI makes it so tiny and annoying.

    • TheRealJhay

      Settings > P.A Settings > Apps

  • dukens

    Which is better Jedi jelly or mind trick x4? Currently running Jedi I’ve yet to try Mind trick x4

    • Steve

      it depends what you like most, ICS or Jelly bean.
      the good thing about JMTX4 its that you can overclock yout phone to 1728 Mhz.
      just remember that because 4.1 its the newest version of android, you can find more issues than ICS on a galaxy S2 phones. hope this help you.
      P.S. you have to try and compare, some people prefer black than blue, but some people don’t.

    • TheRealJhay

      For a full ICS experience, JMTX is the ROM you are looking for. But if you want a ICS+JellyBean ROM with few android experience customizations, JediJelly is the ROM for you. Like what Steve said, your ROM is based off of preference bud.

  • birdman

    wipe then install is all i needed. the audio sometimes glitches out for a second but not always lol

  • Steve

    ok, so for the plople that want to have the lates and greatest 4.1.2, im using slim-star V2.2 (JZO54K) and to be honest, its the best Jelly Bean ROM that i have tried so far!!! excelent features, no ecco calling!!!!!!
    once you installed, you need to download gapps from goo.manager already installed, reboot and you’re ready to rumbble!.
    like i said, the best ROM i tried so far. you can download from XDA forum.
    i already sent an e-mail to Max so he can review it for you 🙂

    • Paulinux

      Do you mind sharing it? And also what camera and gallery you have? I’m would like to check it

      • Steve

        Camera its same as SBeam, Gallery its 1.1.4000 ( i liked Mind trix better but…)

  • Steven

    I had a few issues with slim star. Couldn’t use the torch toggle and tesla led wouldn’t work properly. The notification lights also didn’t respond properly. I might give it another shot since it’s working well for you.

  • Value Theory

    Is wifi calling available on this ROM?

    • TheRealJhay

      Sorry buddy but all of the AOKP ROMs don’t have WiFi calling as a feature. If WiFi calling is a necessity for you, I advise using ICS based roms. Hope this helped

  • Andy

    Flashed this ROM just yesterday. Looks great but have got multiple issues.
    – Gallery sometimes shows all files but many times shows nothing at all … too often
    – May not be related to this ROM, but during this last 1 day, it happened once that the phone could not connect to network at all. Rebooted and its working fine now.
    – Biggest problem for me, an issue with Super User. When I try to use Titanium Backup, I get the message “BusyBox works but the su command does not elevate to root. These’s something wrong with your su binary and/or Superuser app” . I reflashed, rebooted, reinstalled SU, reinstalled Titanium but nothing has fixed this issue.
    – “Theme Chooser” in Settings is not working for me. When I apply any theme, “Theme Chooser” unexpectedly closes with message.
    – Dolphin Browser that came with the ROM never even started. So uninstalled and downloaded new from play store.
    – Having issues with Vibration mode (or maybe I am not able to figure it out). I always use only “Vibrations” for all my notifications and never use “Sound” for them. Somehow I am not able to set this especially for Whatsapp. It seems like I have to turn on the ringtone too for vibration to be active.
    – My GPS used to work well before flashing this one. After this flash, it shows “My current location” way too off (once it showed even outside US). I am planning to flash UVLI4 radio (hopefully it would fix the issue).
    – Having trouble connecting my bluetooth earpiece during calls. Happened multiple times that even after selecting Output to bluetooth, it still kept sending it to phone earpiece though the keypress on my bluetooth was being recognised
    – I have synced all my Google, FB contacts but why I cannot see their display pics in contact list.
    – Where is the Speed Dial setting hidden?

    Except for the above issues, rest all seems fine for now. If the SU, Gallery and GPS gets fixed, I would probably remain on this ROM for sometime since I liked it from speed and battery life point-of-view.

    • Paulinux

      After installing rom Did you wait the 10 mins before setup and then 1min?

      • Andy

        Yes, I did the 10-min wait and also the 1-min wait after second reboot.

        • Paulinux

          It’s v13 or 12? Check the xda website for the latest update, the don’t know the one in this website

          • Andy

            I got the latest one from xda which is named v13.5

          • Paulinux

            I can sure you that v13 it’s fine but 13.5 don’t know , try v13 and wait a couple of days for the other one

            • Andy

              Hmm, I will give v13 a try, hopefully that should fix everything. Thanks Paulinux !!!

    • TheRealJhay

      I’m currently running SBean 13.5 and when I first flashed this ROM, superuser was giving me problems as well; a prompt saying proper binaries for root weren’t installed. I even downloaded a root checker from the market and apparently, my phone was rooted without a functioning superuser.

      What I did to solve this was, I downloaded SuperSU by Chain fire on the market and downloaded a SuperSU zip from xda and flashed it. Supersu had over-written Superusers script and it became the dominant root tool. Then I downloaded titanium backup to freeze and uninstall superuser. Hope this helped bro

  • ken

    anybody ever have problems with the lock screen or home button for this Rom. for some reason lately I’ve had issues with all touchwiz roms with these issues

    • TheRealJhay

      Are you dirty or clean flashing this ROM? Dirty flashing (from another ROM) tends to cause minor bugs.

  • TheRealJhay

    The only problem I seem to be having on SBean ROMs is that when I go into settings > apps, the screen seems to freeze. I normally do cache cleaning on my apps about every other day or so and when I do this, the page freezes. Other than that, this ROM is one of the best with excellent battery life.

  • Robby

    I’ve still been on the malice rom,i know im on the minority on this…i cant find another rom i really like :/

    • Steve

      Have u tried P.A.C.man 20.1.0? That’s the one I’m using
      it’s a combination of AOKP, Paranoid android and CyanogenMod 10.1
      There’s another one from the creator of JMTX4 and I heard that it’s a great ROM too. Check on the XDA website.
