The Galaxy Stratosphere 2 device is not one of the most popular Android smartphones but, today, Verizon decided to release the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean JZO54K firmware update for it. If you own one, then you should get the OTA Update notification in the next few hours and you simply press a few buttons and your Stratosphere 2 phone will be upgraded in 15 minutes.
This news emerged on Verizon Blog, which means that the update should hit devices starting today. The Android 4.1.2 JZO54K firmware update brings the stock Jelly Bean features to your device. You will be able to use the Google Now service, improved voice search, better keyboard, expanded notifications and some tweaks applied to the overall UI of your Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere 2.
There are other small improvements that were packed for this device and it should make it run smoother as the Project Butter is one of the main features of Jelly Bean OTA Updates. I’m talking about the improved Wi-Fi connectivity that should give you better and more stable connections when using Wi-Fi networks.
Verizon decided to remove some of its own bloatware applications such as VZ Apps, Verizon Video, Color App, VPN Client icon and Zappos. After the update is installed you will see that the S Beam QuickOffice has been installed and it can be used right away. Widgets will now be supported by your phone’s home screen.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OTA Update measures 506MB in size and, in case you didn’t receive the upgrade notification, then you can open Settings, then tap About Device, open Software Updates and then tap Check Now button. Confirm that you want to install the new OS files and wait 10-15 files until the process is complete.
If your device is rooted and uses a custom ROM then you won’t see the new update being rolled by Verizon for your Galaxy Stratosphere 2 device. Tell us in comments if you got the update and, if you did, which are its best new features. What impressed you the most while testing the Android 4.1 JZO54K Jelly Bean ?
