How to update Galaxy Grand with XXUBMHD Firmware based Android 4.2.2 ROM


Samsung Galaxy GRAND I9082 has received the official XXUBMHD Firmware based Android 4.2.2 Jellybean update. I think they will launch it through OTA but it is going to take time (especially in underdeveloped area where connectivity issues are there). But you can anytime update your Grand with XXUBMHD Firmware through one manual method. I am going to share that here.

Well talking about the ROM then it is going to shutter down most of the previous issues like Force closing of some of the apps, overheating during charging etc. All these issues were reported by Grand users and now they are receiving the proper treat from Samsung. You don’t even need to root your Grand as it is an official ROM update.

Please be careful while dealing with this ROM. It is developed for Galaxy Grand built I9082 only. So please don’t even think of applying it one other Samsung models like Grand Quattro or any other. It might cause problems with other devices. Even it can easily brick them (or can make them insensitive). So please be careful.

How to install XXUBMHD Android 4.2.2 JB ROM in Galaxy Grand

At first, please follow these pre-requisites and ensure that you have back-upped most of the data using these simple steps. It is required in accidental cases. Don’t forget to back up your current ROM (you will find option in the recovery menu).

1. Download XXUBMHD Package on computer.
2. Extract it somewhere on computer. I will advise you to extract it on desktop.
3. This ROM can be flashed with Odin Tool. I have already compiled all the Odin instructions here. You only need to follow them sequentially.
4. In the Odin tool, you will find one step where you will have to boot to Download Mode. So to do so, first turn Off your Grand and then turn it On with the combination of Vol. Down and Home Keys together. In short, you will have to use the combination: Power + Vol. Down + Home Key. It will boot you to download mode. You might get booted to a mode where you will see Download Mode option. If any such thing is happening then please select the Download Mode option.

This is it. You have updated your Galaxy Grand with latest XXUBMHD firmware based Android 4.2.2 Jellybean ROM from Samsung. If you need any kind of help from my side, then please ask by commenting below.
