Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 gets Jelly Bean firmware in UK

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 gets Jelly Bean firmware in UK - read the full textIf you've bought a Samsung Galaxy Ace 2, you're probably all too familiar with its Jelly Bean rollout and how unnervingly tedious it is.

Does JB still make ACE 2 slower? Is there any stable and fast version of JB for ACE 2?

I updated my O2 Foyo phone to an Ace 2 yesterday @ Car phone warehouse and on setup noticed it is supplied with 4.1.2 Jellybean. Unfortunately the user instructions have not been updated! Where can I find operating info?

Don't rush to make this upgrade to your Ace 2. Jelly bean looks pretty but the phone is now terribly slow. It is painful to use the browser, slow to even open the dialer or email, typing a message is excruciating, and Facebook won't run at all. A full factory reset made a bit of an improvement, but it is still awful. This looks like a Samsung strategy to get you to go out and buy a new more powerful phone.

O2 have told me there is no information available for the update in the u.k. If flashing the update goes wrong you will be left with a bricked phone so beware of going down that route .Keep checking on Samsung live firmware updates. And keep pestering your mobile providers for answers.

ive installed jellybean (official Portuguese) on my SG ace2. the biggest issue ive felt after 3 days is the keyboard. the 3x4 keyboard doesnt have xt9 prediction on/off toggle switch (tapping "0" did the trick in GB) and how the hell do you cut/copy text to your clipboard??? long press or tapping the triangle cursor thingy gave us those options but now it doesnt. please anyone who's using this rom help me
