Umi X1 gets Android 4.1 Jelly Bean ROM Download Links

The UMi X1 just got a killer new feature! Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and it’s available for public download now!

Before any of you decide to download and install the latest version of Android of the UMi X1 please take note that I have just found the news myself, and have not tried it. As this is a beta there are likely a few bugs in the system and it might be advisable to wait before attempting to install on your phone if it’s in daily use.

Gizchina News of the week

Judging by the screen shots here, Android Jelly Bean for the Umi X1 bring a new theme to the phone, the rest of the ROM is likely to come with your standard JB features, but might also have a bit of bloatware in the way of Chinese apps.

Let us know your experiences with the ROM in the comments section below!

Don’t forget you can enter our UMi X1 give away here, but be quick as the closing date is 1st December!
