          The sonofabitch writer of this blog post didn’t tell you that camera and wifi AP isn’t supported. Also he didn’t give credits to whom developed this rom.

          This is the development thread.

          Thanks TheWhisp for the rom. The camera update will probably never come anyway.

    Samsung still instist that an official JB will be released although so far over a year late to when the originally said it would be released. I would go down the custom route if the issues are fixed – everyone seems to report camera not working, this has been an issue for a very long time now with no fix for it.
