Post Jelly Bean on Epic 4g?

Has anyone rooted their phone and attempted to go with Androids Jelly Bean software?

Would anyone recommend doing this (worth it or not?)? What would be some of the Pros and Cons? Also, how is it different from ICS?

Thanks for the help!

Yes, I have Jelly Bean.

As mentioned, it suffers from LOS (loss of signal) and the phone keeps reverting to airplane mode. If you do not have a strong wifi connection, your battery life is HORRIBLE (like 2-3 hours).

It's in beta state right now, if this is your primary phone I would not do the update at all. I have it on a seldom used back up phone. Jelly Bean is awesome though, can't wait until it comes out for real, or at least there is a real root alternative. LOS is unbearable, even on a back up phone. About to flash back to GB and then back up to ICS today.

Edit:

Apparently there are some new updates that fix the wifi and LOS issues. I just flashed the updates, will report back.

This is my only phone that I use and it sounds like loss of battery life and LOS is heavy so I should probably avoid JB?

Well, I'm must be really dumb as a rock. I just got ICS notification, now there's Jelly Bean??? And worse, I thought JB was for tabs only.

I don't even want ICS so JB isn't on the radar screen.

since ICS all android firmware updates should be compatible across phones and tablets.
there is no official update for JB for any US phones (besides the international galaxy nexus) and you will probably never see a official update for the Epic 4g touch from sprint or Samsung.

I've been running AOSP JB for a couple days and it is GREAT.

*moved to the all things root section.

Edit 2: here is my thread about the ROM I've been Using JellyBean
