S Advance update is out through kies in India. I don't understand why people are giving negative comments regarding update.
I updated it last night and my phone is absolutely good.Its performance has improved a lot.Battery backup has increased,there are no lags at all,free RAM has gone up from 555 to 625 MB.Its faster,touch sensitivity has also enhanced due to project butter.
The only thing I missed was Multiwindow,its not there.
You have to just install latest version of kies(or update your older one)plug in ur fone thro. data cable and rest.
One thing to mention,before updating do the factory reset.
I used my phone in Hong Kong once...Now I'm in Sri Lanka..I can't get the official update...Why is that....????

Avoid this update!!
I'm at Hong Kong, just updated on Monday. However, this update make my phone almost un-usable! Problem include:
1. serious log
2. hung up all the times
3. multitask become almost impossible. I used to be able to run music player & Candy Crusher together. But now I can't.
4. battery life is down 1/3 compare to 2.3.6 (this may due to my aging batteries...)
5. each time I restart the phone, the customizations that I've done (put short cut on desktop; customize programme folders) will be all gone.

Guys, JB is available in India. If you have the latest Kies installed in your system, you will get an Firmware update message. Sometimes it wont get updated. The best way to upgrade to JB is by manual update. Refer to the below steps and you will be able to upgrade your S Advance to JB.
Before upgrading to JB, backup all your contacts, messages and other stuffs. And its under your own risk.
Just go to http://samsung-updates.com/ and download the firmware available for S advance .
Install Odin and select that firmware .....within 10min ur device will run JB.
steps for installation through Odin
Once you do the upgrade to JB do the factory reset by holding volume up button, home key and lock key simultaneously...and your phone will run super smooth.
I have upgraded to JB and there is no lag whatsoever...I am loving JB. Also, some of the cool features have been added like popup play, Direct call etc.
Please help me...how can I update this phone to JELLY BEAN??? Is this update available in Kerala (India)???
