  1. I’ve had Jelly Bean in the past & honestly, I have gone back to a good custom ROM using Ice-Cream-Sandwich because it has the best battery life of any ROM I have used. If U can go back to Jelly Bean 4.1.2, that’s a better version of Jelly Bean, DON’T upgrade to 4.2.2 – And doing a “Factory Reset” DOESN’T fix the problem!
