How to Install Jelly Bean JRO03L Codename Android ROM on GSM Galaxy Nexus i9250
- Backing up Data :- We are about to flash a new custom Codename Android ROM to our Galaxy Nexus which wipes all the data stored on our phone. So backing up our data is a safe hand advise. Begin with your SMS, back them up with the help of app “SMS Backup and Restore”. Do sync your contacts and call logs with Gmail, store all the images, videos and text to any external device. Write down your phone’s APN and MMS settings at a safe place. Sometimes due to a faulty process, anything goes wrong, it’s better we have the settings for our data connection. Do back up every bit of data you have stored on your phone’s internal memory. As this flashing requires you to unlock your phone’s bootloader so also back up everything on your phone’s SD card.
- Now we suppose you have an unlocked bootloader on your Galaxy Nexus i9250, if not please do so. Unlocking the bootloader is very most essential step to proceed further. Do not proceed if you don’t have an unlocked bootloader, doing so can brick your phone. Unlocking Bootloader voids your warranty so proceed at your own risk.
- As normally we flash firmware via CWM recovery but this time we advise you to use “Team Win Recovery Project”, it works same as like “CWM recovery”. While installing recovery, better make sure you flash the GSM version of TWRP recovery.
- Download the Jelly Bean JRO03L Codename Android ROM from given below link provided.
- As the above firmware package do not have Google Apps added so you need to install Google Apps package to get those apps.
- Both the ROM and Google Apps package after downloading, copy them to your Nexus. (Make sure you just copy do not extract them).
- Now we will boot into TWRP recovery. Switch off your phone and press and hold “Volume up and down” buttons together and then press “Power” button altogether till your phone screen is back on again. You scroll down with the help of “Volume buttons” and select by “Power” button. Scroll to option “Reboot system now” and reboot into recovery.
- Now go back to main menu and tap on “Back up and Restore” to back up your present ROM, in case you face any issues with this ROM later on then you can easily restore your previous ROM. After your current ROM is backed up, go back to main menu option.
- Scroll down and Choose Wipe > Factory reset > Confirm Yes, Wipe data. This process deletes all your phone’s data except the one on SD card. After data is wiped, Go back to main menu.
- Scroll down to option “Install” and choose your downloaded copied ROM file on your phone. Select it to install, confirm the installation by selecting “Yes”. After ROM is successfully installed, do this process again to install Google Apps package file copied to your phone earlier.
- After both ROM and Google Apps package is successfully installed, Reboot into Codename Android ROM. It usually takes 5-10 minutes to boot, so don’t worry if some more time is taken.
