Jelly-Bean-4.1.2-for-Galaxy-S2

The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update is rolled out by Samsung for its Galaxy S2 GT-I9100P, according to Sam Mobile. Even though the Samsung Galaxy S2 was launched two years ago, the company is till pushing software updates for it because it was the most sold Android smartphone in 2011. While some of its users have decided to make an upgrade and have bought a new smartphone, there are still plenty of Galaxy S2 owners out there so this update makes perfect sense.

Samsung is pushing the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update gradually, thus you may not have the possibility to install it right now. Also, the Android 4.1.2 firmware upgrade may not yet be rolled out in your region especially if the device is mobile operator branded. However, there is no need to worry because the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update will be received by all Galaxy S2 GT-I9100P owners eventually.

Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update is the most important software update ever received by the Samsung Galaxy S2. The smartphone was launched running Android Gingerbread, and even though it has been updated to Android Ice Cream Sandwich the change has not been that noticeable as no UI modifications have come along.

Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean will certainly make a difference because it will bring a whole new experience to your Samsung Galaxy S2 thanks to the new Nature UX unser interface, which can be found on the Galaxy S3.

Apart from the new user interface, the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update comes with other mentionable features and enhancements: Project Butter (improves the performance and stability of your phone), TouchWiz Nature UX, enhanced camera functions, Samsung’s Cloud services, a brand new lockscreen offering lost of customization possibilities, brand new functions such as Pop-up Play, Direct Call, and Smart Stay, new Galaxy S3 widgets, two Home screen modes, improved notification system, and of course Google Now.

The Samsung Galaxy S2 Android Jelly Bean Update can be installed over the air or by using the Samsung Kies desktop application. The update file is quite large so you better charge your smartphone before updating it (in case you do it OTA).

    Indeed, make sure your phone is charged and download the update when you don’t need to use the phone. The update takes 7 hours. Then there are more follow-up actions afterwards. You phone will look completely different afterwards so allow time to refamiliarise yourself and reorganise your icons. And, frankly, the improvement is negligible, and the adverse affect on the phone is huge.

      Seriously, mine took 30 minutes off Optus a week ago and the phone is faster, has significantly better features, battery life has improved and it has modernised to the point I am considering not upgrading when my contract runs out next month (for now anyway)
