[Updated] Install Android 4.1 JellyBean (Stable v4) on Micromax Funbook

Micromax Funbook P300 users rejoice!

We are finally going to share how you can install Android 4.1 JellyBean on Micromax Funbook P300. 

The Android 4.1 JellyBean for Funbook P300 is actually based on CyanogenMOD 10. This is the successor to the one of the most famous and stable ROMs for Micromax Funbook P300, the CyanBook ROM for Funbook.

This ROM, as the title suggests is still in its Beta (and that too, in its first Beta) so you should not expect it to run perfectly there are still many bugs as it is based on CM10 nightly. But its worth checking out.

So, before installing this ROM lets take a look at some bugs and features of this ROM.

Bugs

  • Camera can crash at times.
  • No Hardware Acceleration.
  • USB will not auto mount. You have to do it manually(Method explained later).
  • Google TTS may crash occasionally.
  • Google Now might not stop listening to you. Solution is known and the dev is trying to implement it.
  • There are many more bugs as this is still a Beta version.
Features
  • Google Play Store support
  • Bluetooth USB dongle works
  • Support for PS3/ Xbox 360 and Generic Gamepads
  • USB Audio Support.
  • SmartAss V2 Governor
  • Apex Launcher
  • Kernel SamePage Merging (KSM) enabled Kernel
  • V6 supercharger and Adrenaline Scripts Included

So, in this post I will tell you how you can install Android 4.1 JellyBean on Micromax Funbook P300. 

 Requirements

Download ZIPs

Download CyanBook JellyBean v2 Download JB Gapps

Move both the downloaded ZIPs in your external SD card. Don’t forget to insert that SD card in Funbook . :P

Installation

Okay so now comes the fun part. Follow the steps properly:

  •  Reboot into CWM Recovery Mode. To reboot into recovery mode turn off your tab. Press the “Options button” and “Power Button” simultaneously.
  • Now I would suggest you to take a backup of your current ROM just in case you run into some trouble.
  • Now select “Wipe data/factory reset“. Let it complete.
  • Now go to Advanced > Wipe Dalvik Cache. Move to the next step when this is complete.
  • Now choose “Install ZIP from SD card” and choose the “CyanBook_JB_V4.zip”. Let it install.
  • After the above ZIP is installed properly again choose “Install ZIP from SD card” and then choose “gapps-jb-20120726-signed.zip“. Let it install as well.
  • All done! Time to reboot.

Booting Up

It will take some time while its booting for the first time. After it boots up you will need to set it up. Just follow the steps and enter the required info that you are asked for. It will only take a minute or two.

All done? Great!

You just learnt how to install JellyBean on Micromax Funbook P300.

Snaps

Pictures are worth a thousand words so here are some screenshots so that you can see how your Funbook will look with JellyBean installed on it.

    Hi, everything worked for me, except the last 2nd step

    Now choose “Install ZIP from SD card” and choose the “CyanBook_JB_Beta1.zip”. Let it install.

    AFTER CHOOSING THIS ZIP FILE “CyanBook_JB_V2.zip”

    installation started after some time

    installation aborted with error

    “symlink: some symlinks failed
    E: Erroe in /sdcard/cyanbook_JB_V2.zip
    (Status 7)
    Installation aborted”

    pls help me on this error message.

    • http://www.stupidtechie.net/ Ujjwal Kumar

      That’s weird. Because It installed perfectly for me. Please download it again and try.

      • prakash

        Hi Ujjwal,

        Thank you for reply,

        The downloaded zip file is corrupt

        “CRC failed in systemliblibvorbisidec.so. The file is corrupt”

        • http://www.stupidtechie.net/ Ujjwal Kumar

          That is why I asked you to download again. Have fun.

          • prakash

            Hi Ujjwal,

            I download the file once again(3rd time) still the zip file is corrupt,

            can you download the file by yourself & try to extract the zip file to the folder & confirm me back, if it worked for you.

          • http://www.stupidtechie.net/ Ujjwal Kumar

            Downloaded and its ok for me. Please check your internet connection.

          • prakash

            ok, i think my internet connection is slow(64Mbps) :-)

            1 help, can you download this file & re-upload in Mediafire & share me the link( new link)

          • http://www.stupidtechie.net/ Ujjwal Kumar

            What ISP in India is giving you 64 MBPS?! I still think its your ISP because my 3 MBPS connection downloaded it without any difficulty.

          • prakash

            sorry man if i had hurt you,

            I’m working in MNC company it has 400Mbpsx2, but i get 64Mbps speed,

            for you info ISP is Airtel & Tata & Reliance.

            do not bring my India & I don’t know why you are going out of topic,

            if u do not know about India pls do not talk about India,

            India has very thing, but nobody know it.

          • http://www.stupidtechie.net/ Ujjwal Kumar

            Great. Anyways, just download it again. The ZIP is healthy.

  • Siva

    • http://www.stupidtechie.net/ Ujjwal Kumar

  • http://www.stupidtechie.net/ Ujjwal Kumar

    The amount of RAM shown is usable by other apps and the rest of it by Android System.
