@jisnul. Yes it is available through kies. But I havent updated it yet. Thought of getting opinions from others. You can find out about XXMG2 firmware for Galaxy ACE 2 if you search the net.

> In reply to jisnul @ 2013-08-09 08:37 from U$4N - click to readCamera is OK. Game, depends on the game. I had tried play Dark Avengers (developed by Gamevil), it faced bad lag on Jelly Bean. For hang/freeze, that I had ever experienced on Galaxy Ace 2 from browsing using Chrome and streaming YouTube. I don't know about XXMF1 or XXMF2. I just tried (downloaded itself) Jelly Bean leak XXMB2, XXMB4 and official XXMC8. The best Jelly Bean 4.1.2 I had tried was XXMD4 (Indonesia only), I took Galaxy Ace 2 to Samsung Service Center. For Jelly Bean China, German, or UK, I never try them.

I actually don't use messaging and YouTube often.But does it have other problems in gaming, camera or restart problems?

Is xxmf2 free from bugs?

Please suggest whether xxmc8 or xxmf2 is better?Suggest me the best firmware.
(I also heard about xxmf1, plz advice which I should flash)

http://androidlegend.com/andro...ace-2-i8160/

You can follow the above tutorial. I had tried Jelly Bean XXMC8 on previous my Galaxy Ace 2 (Indonesia), it still had a bug, bad freeze when streaming YouTube, typing in messaging slower compared in Gingerbread. So, I conclude Gingerbread is the best for Galaxy Ace 2.

NB: I don't responsible for any damage. You do your own risk
