[4.1.2] [Final] Jelly Bean Update for Galaxy W

[4.1.2] Jelly Bean Update for Galaxy W
[4.1.2] Jelly Bean Update for Galaxy W is faster and smoother compared to Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS). [4.1.2] Jelly Bean Update for Galaxy W improves on the simplicity and beauty of Android 4.0.4, and introduces a new Google search experience on Android.

Everything in [4.1.2] Jelly Bean Update for Galaxy W feels fast, fluid, and smooth. Moving between home screens and switching between apps is effortless, like turning pages in a book. [4.1.2] Jelly Bean Update for Galaxy W features improved performance throughout the system, including faster orientation changes, faster responses when switching between recent apps, and smoother and more consistent rendering across the system through vsync and triple buffering.


[4.1.2] Jelly Bean Update for Galaxy W has more reactive and uniform touch responses, and makes your device even more responsive by boosting your device's CPU instantly when you touch the screen, and turns it down when you don't need it to improve battery life.


However, on Samsung Galaxy W you can't expect to have [4.1.2 ] Jelly Bean Update released by Samsung since they have stopped making update for this device. After successfully made ICS update for Samsung Galaxy W, Arco68 comes back with CyanogenMod 10 [CM10] which introduces the sensation of [4.1.2] Jelly Bean Update for Galaxy W. 


This [4.1.2] Jelly Bean Update for Galaxy W is built from source (based on Jellybean 4.1.2). Huge thanks to arco68 for his work on bringing CyanogenMod 10 [JB] to the Galaxy W. Also, thanks to the CyanogenMod team who keep working on improving their ROM and creating possibilities for many devices to get updated goodies.

Upgrades
Upgrades from previous versions of CM10 are the same process as install, except you do not need to wipe anything. Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to even wipe cache and dalvik-cache when upgrading between CM10 versions. You only need to wipe if you are doing a major upgrade, switching to a different ROM entirely, or attempting to fix bugs caused by bad backups or corrupt app data.
