Android development community is spreading the Jelly Bean fever everywhere, nowadays almost every Android users trying to taste the Jelly Bean in different ways such as via custom ROMs, here’s a Jelly Bean ROM for the Samsung Infuse 4G named CypherROM.
The CypherROM is based on Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean and ported from the AOKP, the AOKP is well-known custom ROM for customizable features that allow you to tweak the different aspects of your Android device for enhancing its performance. The Jelly Bean also brings a lot of new features and apps such as the advanced notification bar, advanced keyboard app, better browser, new Google Now searching app and much more.
However the CypherROM is still being updated and currently has bugs, take a look on current issues:
All the same issues as ICS and the other JB Roms
Video recording choppy at 720res in high light…use 480
Torch not working. There is an app in the Play Store called MaxFlash that works well. I’m still working on this.
Nandroid Backup broken. Download This Fix and flash from recovery. I’ll fix this in next build.
I highly recommend Nova Launcher. It’s by far the fastest and smoothest with JB.
