Basic Prerequisites before rooting:

As rooting process involves loss of data it is advised to backup all your valuable data which might well cost you a lot on their loss. In case you loose your data or get your data corrupted you can always have your backup to restore it back. It is also good if you don’t use KIES software or any other ROM managers to backup your data.

Things you need to back up: SMS, Contacts, Call log, Images, songs, videos, files which are present in your internal memory, APN and MMS settings (follow this path “Applications > Settings > Wireless and Network > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names”) From the path “Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging”, enable the USB Debugging, ensure that the USB debugging option is ticked (Check marked). Also be sure that your battery is not below 35% if not you could get your device turned off in the middle of the firmware update.

You must have rooted your device and installed ClockworkMod Recovery on your device.

You also need to make sure that the antivirus app is turned off as it could interrupt the firmware update process. USB read/write option should be there in your computer.

    Probably this is a wrong version and it seems the actual engine is still ginger bread and other changes are modified UI as Jelly Beans memory requirment is minimum 512 MB RAM and Galaxy Y has only 180 MB which is a mis-match so lets do our home work of what are the basic requirments of the Android versions other wise we are in Uncharted waters and no one to help if it goes worng. and more over with all the risk if what you still are installing is only Ginger Bread with UI changes what a waste of time and risky as the new OS is not officials and may make you veneruable to hacks.
