Samsung Galaxy S2 (GT-I9100) Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean Update Arrives

Edwin Kee

The international version of the Samsung Galaxy S2 (model number GT-I9100) still has some life left in its legs just yet, with Samsung introducing the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update that should keep owners and fans of the handset more than happy. After all, it has been a pretty good servant ever since it was launched a couple of years back to much fanfare, and has stood pretty well on its own, setting some sales records back in its heydays.

 

Basically, if you happen to own the unlocked international version of the Galaxy S2 and reside in Spain, you ought to have begun to receive the update by now, so you would do well to check it out if you haven’t yet done so already.

The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S2 will be available via two routes - either Over-The-Air (OTA), or through the Samsung's Kies software. Needless to say, you will find as though the Galaxy S2 has received a new lease of life with the latest Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update, including a user interface that is far closer to the Galaxy S3 than ever before since the new Nature UX will be part of the OTA download.

Other goodies that you can hope to enjoy with the latest Jelly Bean update include features such as Direct Call, Smart Stay, a pop-up floating video player that comes in handy, improved TouchWiz widgets, Project Butter and Google Now among others.

Are you stoked yet? Whoever has lost hope in the fact that good things come to those who wait might just end up with a smile on their faces this time around.

    And now that it's coming closer, I begin to regreat my old 4.0.3 ... It's rooted, unlocked, fully backed up...
    When I compare it to its brother "SIII", this last one is too large for my pocket ...
    What else do I need ?
    I'll accept the upgrade, but "in case of...", I'll keep in security a back-up of this ROM...
    What else do I need ?

    The method is easy. Use Odin 1.85 . Open Odin hit the button PDA and enter the file that ends with tar. Turn off phone, then turn it on holding center button volume down at the same time. this takes you into update mode. Hit volume up once connect phone to computer via usb cable. Odin will see the phone and hit the Start button in Odin. Wait 5 mins. Done

    Its certainly looking like this is the year I go No Contract with a Samsung Galaxy S 2 or 3 ... with Jelly Bean software (& anyone wanting to lol @ this should know I've milked an HTC Droid Incredible for a long time as I patiently waited to see who would deliver the best No Contract Android Smart Phone - HTC or Samsung? It appears Samsung wins!) ...

    Can I use this on my T-Mobile GSII and make it like the International version so I don't have all the T-Mobile crapware on it?
    I expect when T-Mobile finally pushes 4.1.2 to my phone, it'll be the last update I get since the phone is nearing two years on the market. I plan to keep this phone until it just stops working. It does everything I need

    Happy Valentines Day CANADA!!! The Jelly Bean updated (4.1.2) rolled out today for the GT-I9100M version of the Galaxy S2. Those of you on the Bell Canada network should be getting it today.

    There is one bug I have noticed already. The new S Planner Widget causes the new TouchWiz Home to stop. The only way to fix it if you experience it is a factory restore. So far I have only experienced the issue with the S Planner widget.

    I always check out this website for iPhone alternatives - www.microsoftapple.com - My personal favourite is the Nokia Lumia because of the camera and speed of the operating system.
