Latest JellyBam is now known as BAM-Rom

The last version for JellyBam is 10.3.0. There will not be any further JellyBAM version such as 10.4.0 or 10.5.0. Now the JellyBAM is known as BAM-Rom or BAM-Android.

I was using JellyBam 10.3.0 (or in fact, 10.x.x version)  on my Samsung Galaxy Note N700. It was very unstable, it crash/reboot from time to time especially when using Waze and Camera. The battery energy consumption also very poor. It

Now the new version is under the name BAM-Rom or BAM-Android. I upgrade/flash it with BAM-Rom_v1.0.0-RC1_JellyBean and it seem to work better and lighter.

BAM-Rom_v1.0.0-RC1_JellyBean

 

Althought now BAM-Rom still in  1.0.0-RC1 (base on Android 4.3 version) but BAM-Rom is  more stable compare to Jelly Bam 10.x.x. I strongly recommend the JellyBAM 10.x.x user to upgrade to BAM-Rom if you encounter stability issue on JellyBam also.

The new RC-2 version is going to release in these few days. Will update to 1.0.0-RC2 as soon as it released. According to http://bam-android.com/forum/bam-rom/release-notes/553-bam-android-rom-1-0-0-rc2, below are some of the new features in BAM-Rom 1.0.0-RC2.
