Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean for Galaxy S2: Download It Here!

Steven Blum
119

Samsung has begun distributing the Android 4.1.2 update OTA across the globe for a little while now. But if you haven't received your update and are getting a little impatient, you can install it right now using the Flash program "Odin," which is not at all difficult to use.

To snag Android 4.1.2 on your Galaxy S2, first you'll need to install Odin and Samsung's stock ROM (international version). Sammobile offers both as downloads, but because it can be painfully slow to download them from their site, we're offering them to you on our servers as well. Here you can download Samsung's stock ROM, and here you can download Odin. Obligatory warning: AndroidPIT cannot be held responsible if you follow our instructions incorrectly and end up damaging your phone.

Here's How to Install The Update on Your Galaxy S2:

1. Download Odin and the firmware on your PC (links above) and extract the files, placing them in the folder of your choice.

2. Secure your smartphone with Ultimate Backup because you are going to need to return your phone to factory settings and clear all caches. Theoretically, it's possible to install the update without wiping your device, but there's risk that your phone then won't run smoothly.

3. Turn off your device. Then start it in recovery mode by holding the volume up, home button and power button simultaneously until a small green Android appears with a menu above him.

4. Use the volume buttons to choos "wipe data / factory reset" and select it with the power button. Scroll down to "yes" using the volume button and select it with the power button again. Then repeat the procedure with "wipe cache partition."

5. Choose "reboot system now" using the power button.

6. Turn the phone off again.

7. Restart phone in download mode (home + power + volume down).

8. Start Odin on your computer

9. Click PDA and add the unzipped firmware code: I9100XWLS8_I9100XXLS8_I9100FOPLS3_HOME.tar.md5 to PDA

Leave everything else unchanged and make sure that the "repartition" box is not checked.

10. Connect your Galaxy S2 to your PC via USB cable. In the top left of Odin, you should now see a box which reads 0:COM 12 (It may also read a different number besides 12).

11.Click "start" and wait until the green "PASS!" button appears. Wait until your Galaxy S2 has restarted before you disconnect it.

12. THAT'S IT!

If your phone gets stuck during the boot process, do not panic! This often happens during the Flash process. Try pressing the power button down until the Galaxy S2 turns off, then repeat steps 2 through 4..

    Great news Steven, but I am assuming that this is only for the international (I9000) version and not any of the US versions -like AT&T SGH-I777?

    (It will be interesting to see if the Samsung official JB will be as good as the latest custom rom's for our Galaxy S2 (like Shostock 3 for the i777! I:-)

    XDA has more info on this update and a link as well. It's an update for the I9100 version (international) and does not seem to be for the S2`s offered by US carriers. :-(

    @Chris, no I don't think you can use this update for your T-Mobile S2! These roms (and updates) are machine specific. Don't install this, or your phone is likely to either not work or have real problems!

    I9100 roms have to be adjusted or tweaked to work on our US versions (that's what they call "hell raising" a Rom :-) Xda has several great JB roms for our phones -just look under the development section for your model. (Sorry if you already know this, but sometimes it is worth remembering or repeating in these discussions). Anyway, they would also eliminate the carrier's bloatware.

    Right you are! This is a late release, but we've had a choice of several JB roms for our (well at least the I777) model since at least last October (4 months).

    But this is an official version -"bug free" (although the XDA site mentions some issues with this I9100 JBt) and commercially stable. However, when we use roms from the DEVs at XDA, there is always an element of putting up with some glitches since most of the time the DEVs are working with only pieces of the full code for the phone. . . (That said the last two JB roms I have used on my Galaxy S2 have been amazingly stable and reliable. Perhaps even better than some of the Samsung /AT&T earlier releases of older roms!)

    So the official release is not really essential to getting a Jelly Bean (android 4.1.2 or even 4.2.0) feel on the phone. Still, it is nice to see an official version, because it can help the Developers polish off the last bugs or issues they have been wrestling with in their efforts. . .

    Hi @manmeetingsingh!

    Sorry to hear you're having difficulties. . .

    (1) My recommendation is take out the battery, then wait a moment. Replace the battery and see if it boots.

    (2) If you are STILL at the boot freeze after this, then I would first try to do a reinstall using Odin. Simply try again and see if repeating the process works.

    (3) If not, then (1) reflash --or use odin to flash a stock version of the I9100 rom and ensure it works. and then (2) go ahead and try to do the update again.

    (4) If this STILL does not work. . . well, you may have a bad download and you should re-download the ROM and ensure (if you can) that the size/checksum is correct. After re-downloading it, go yet for a third time to oden and see if you can get it working this way.

    BTW, you may flipflop steps three and four (above), If you are impatient and want to and get a result more quickly. . .

    OK, others may offer a better approach --but that is what I would do (and have done when I have been stuck in flashing roms. (Although usually is in when flashing roms via Clockwork Mod vice oden. . . .)

    GOOD LUCK!

    @Steve -thank you for the nice words ;-) hope you're feeling better. Your articles are also appreciated (and their r more accurate than my amateur-but-interested advice ;-)

    @marc-zaky My opinion is "NO." Why? well, I don't think this is a "leaked" Jelly Bean rom. It is a real/official Samsung update!

    So I don't think your support and updates would be affected. And if they were, you could always flash the phone back to whatever version of android you had on it when you purchased it!

    Having a French carrier, I have installed this "official" rom dedicated to the Western Europ (UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Hungry), . It's functionning perfectly.
    May be two details :
    - there's not multi windows,
    - it's changing the name of the external SD (troubling at the beginning the time you realize what has to be changed).
    BUT it's recognized by Kies, telling you that's the last micro-software, and you can go through the files, copy and move them.
    The last remark I can make, when you try with : \settings\about device\ software update ..., >>>> This option is refused... (software has been changed etc....)
    The rom was flashed with Mobil Odin, rooting it in the same action. No problem.
    I didn't lose any data, any app or tune, perfect.
    I recommand it.

Only one question: about gtalk - when I'm on wi-fi my gtalk works normal but when wi-fi it's off and I'm on mobile data my gtalk set me as invisible or offline, all my friends are online on my phone but I can't send anything, or change my status (sometimes all contacts looks as offline).
    My friends see me as offline from theirs phones.
    What can be done? tks.

    Thanks serge75,

    I wasn't sure whether I needed to root my phone to use the ROM as its an official release, as all the unofficial roms avaialable from XDA usually require the phone to be rooted.

    I am on O2 UK and using the standard ICS release unrooted, but I am getting tired of waiting for their official JB release, so I was going to flash this ROM and see how it goes.

  • Serge75 Feb 4, 2013 Link

    @sys administrator

    You can do it without fear... that's an official one. Not using the ordinary way (i.e. without using Kies), you'll be in advance, that's all.
    And Kies will reconnize your device, even confirming on the screen you have the last micro-software.
    Have a good day "SYS Adm".

    @Dpatel

    Not at all, you don't need to be "root". you have only to use Odin as it's clearly explained... not risky at all -
    Doing precisely what was written, I didn't lose any data, any apps, any format, ... nothing.
    Have no fear at all, it's an official Samsung Rom...

    That's all folks...

    Two weeks later this Rom release was flashed on my SII using MobilOdin (rooting it by the same time), I was proposed by Kies to update it by a new one : I9100XWLSD_I9100XXLS8_I9100FOPLS4,
    - I didn't accept it,
    - last sunday I again was proposed to update it but with OTA. I finally accepted it.Nice operation, no problem at all, very quickly done...

    Having all checked and tested, I confirm there is no difference at all between this new version and this I9100XWLS8_I9100XXLS8_I9100FOPLS3 proposed here,

    That's confirming this version is official, reconized by Kies, later then proposed to be updated by another new version, and by Kies, and by OTA...

    The only difference appears when you dial *#1234#, but nothing else...
    Definitely a great rom....

  • Serge75 Feb 19, 2013 Link

    @david James :
    Well, it's confusing. In your case, I am not able to understand the problem.
    I have another solution (I used), a good one, and successfull :
    If your GSII is root, try then my method, but you must be ROOT,
    I have used Mobil Odin pro, I transfered the downloaded rom on my external SDCard, I then used Mobil Odin for flashing and rooting in the same time Jelly Bean.
    Very secure, automatic, very quick, and the result is perfect. Rooting without changing the Kernel. Kies reconnized my rom, and proposed me even to update it some days after to the national version. I did it, and there is no difference at all. Be confident, there is no risk at all.

    Or anyone else see the reason of the problem ??? Thanks for his assistance.

    Yeah, after the upgrade, your system will be re-locked... but do you need really to unlock it ? You need then to re-unlock it;or with the code given by your carrier, or by using the dedicated apps... but these apps are not too expensive.

    Everything went fine, I updated it, but the phone now heats more - about 10 degrees Celsius more - than it used to (when it was the original ICS from the operator)... Any thoughts?

    hello steven,
    the firmware you have provided i.e. xwls8, i have installed it...but it seems it has minor bug such as..over heating while charging, screen heating...etc.

    recently, samsung has released xwlsn version of firmware for galaxy s2.
    can u please provide that firmware..bcoz i can't download from hotfile in my slow internet connection bcoz hotfile doesnot support resume facility...

    plz help...

    I've just spent a day until 11pm trying to recover my i9100T without success. It started by me foolishly accepting an OTA upgrade to JB. Result: locked phone and cannot unlock. It asks for a SIM network unlock code which it never did before it was "upgraded".

    I suspect that this particular issue happens to those phones which were previously locked to a network (in my case Vodafone) and subsequently unlocked and used/upgraded by a different network (in my case Optus/TPG - Australian carriers).

    If anyone has any bright ideas about how to remedy this situation, please let me (and a lot of others I presume) out of our misery.

    I have a S2 I9100 and im using the firmware from europe (and i live in Argentina) so it works for everybody it has many languajes of course french , spanish, enflish , italian, polish and more Here you can download it http://adf.ly/Q2Q19 . It really easy in 7 minutes you have jelly bean (dont forget to do the wipes before and after flashing to avoid loop or the phone don’t pass logo ) if loop of restart you get after sucessfull installation of firware just go to recovery mode by pressing power button + volume up button and home button simultaneously, move with volumes keys and accept with turn on key, do wipe cache , and wipe data factory reset. Then reboot sustem now Enjoy JB!1
