    is the battery issue solved…bcoz there were a lot of unnecessary huge battery drain in previous version of jellybean for I9000…CM/slimbean,etc all had problems of battery drain..
    so how is the battery life of this new firmware ?

      We have installed this version of CM10.1 on a few i9000 devices and they all run without the battery issue you have mentioned.
      My advice is you should update your device to 2.3.6 stock and then install CM10.1 on your device, if you still have an issue you can always go back to stock.

    I can’t find the Developers option and enable USB Debugging on my Galaxy S1, but i tried to install cynogenmod 10.2 without this step and it worked . The CF-Root-XX_OXA_JVU_2.3.6-v4.3-CWM3RFS.tar that you uploaded didn’t worked as well but I had an identical one on my pc from an old rom installation and mine worked 😐 . Anyway thanks for your tutorial , it helped me a lot !!!
