The world of smartphones and PC from my angle
Android developers have did their awesome work again by releasing Android 4.1 aka Jelly Bean/JB this year and since its release, it has been the talk when it comes to stability, beauty and cool advanced features. Last year it was the yummilicious Ice Cream Sandwich/ICS (Android 4.0).
And yet again the current love of my life, Galaxy SL was left behind when it came to another Android update since the Samsung people have forgotten that there are certain old devices as well running the Android firmware that needs to be updated, but no hard feelings on that because there is always a way in.
Many thanks to God for creating smart and hard working geeks that run the XDA forum, and due to which we can now have the sweet Jelly Bean right on our Galaxy SL smartphone. Since the Dhiru guy has developed the CyanogenMod 10 ROM after his CyanogenMod 9 ROM, several ROMs for Galaxy SL have now been developed and most of these are also based on dhiru’s ROMs. Jelly Bean custom ROMs, just like the Ice cream Sandwich custom ROMs, are available as both AOSP (CyanogenMod) or AOKP based ROMs.
Recently, I happen to come across a Jelly Bean custom ROM (Nexus S custom ROM) based on both CyanogenMod and AOKP. Its called Codename Android and it has been ported to different Galaxy phones. Another geek, LoLaTiOn at XDA forum has successfully ported this amazing ROM to Galaxy SL phone. You can read the details about it and download it from here.
Below are certain screenshots that I took from my phone.

About Codename Android (CNA)
The CNA ROM is pretty stable for an alpha and I kinda find it as the best Jelly Bean ROM for Galaxy i9003 SL.
PS: Keep in mind that CM10 for Galaxy SL at present has extremely bad battery life and I would not recommend it for daily routine purpose
