      See, such firmware updates are specially developed for proper devices. You can not apply this to any other device. It may get you some bug problems if you do so. So, better for you not to apply this firmware on any other device.

      See, no one will guarantee you whether it’s working fine or not. Such custom firmware are released from the developers. On some phones’ it works great whereas on some other it creates many issues. You should try it after taking a good backup of your current data and OS. Hope it will work for you.

      You can copy it on your internal memory storage where you have a separate root file’s folder.

      Search for a direct app from Google Play store to boot your device with bootloader option.

    Hi Mathew,
    I installed the rom. It is super super awesome. Except for twi thing, first is that my SD has disappeared. Cant find it at all. When i connect the phone with the PC and click on Turn On ISB Storage, even then it doesnt work. SO it is not recognized in the phone and even when connected to the PC.
    Second major problem is No battery life. you blink your eyes and one percent drops. Please help me with this. Cant survive without a SD Card (and a battery as well ;p )

    I concluded from your comments guys that this rom is not working well so if anybody want to go back to his old version of software he just have to use backup , if he had no backup you can just make the same steps but for another rom ( old one not jelly bean ) and everything will be normal again
