          Hi, thank for the input. We have amended the post. You need to check the re-partition option since a Pit file is selected. In normal stock firmware upgrade, we make sure the re-partition option is not checked but since this is not the same case.

          First, make sure you have the stock firmware 4.1.2 Jelly Bean on your Galaxy Grand Duos I9082. I have seen much comment in SamMobile website asking for support for Galaxy Grand Duos I9082L which is not compatible.

      Hi raj, glad to heard another successfully port of Android 4.2.2. Please consider to mark our post as Working.
      In the meanwhile, since this is not official release from Samsung (leaked firmware instead), potential bug issue may appeared during daily use. Our advise is to flash back to stock 4.1.2 Jelly Bean if the problem you encountered now is annoying to you.

      I think root method for 4.2.2 jelly bean is not available at this moment. We will update with root method once Samsung officially release 4.2.2 Jelly Bean firmware.

      No, it won’t be removed but it may have compatibility issue on some apps. Make a backup is good practice before flashing.

      Hi, flashing this 4.2.2 Jelly Bean will not void the phone’s warranty. Do not worry. You are recommended to flash back to stock 4.1.2 firmware before download the OTA update.

      Over The Air. We might not try to OTA update on the leaked firmware, that’s why we encourage to flash back stock firmware before update to latest version.

      That’s weird as no other reader report the same issue here. However, can you please try to flash again 4.2.2 leaked firmware but wipe date before the flash? This will clear all data in the device and have a clean installation of the firmware. Do backup all data before wipe.

    When i’m using data (H+) with Sim 1 i can’t receive calls at Sim 2 anymore. I have set “Receive incomming call’s via other SIM card while using data service”. With version 4.2.1 is was possible and when i received a call via Sim 2 the data connection (H+) automatic cut off. And H+ disappear at the status bar.

    Is this a minor bug in 4.2.2?

    At your info. Sim 1 is only a data simcard. Sim 2 is a simcard without data (only sms and speech).
