I updated my Ace 2 today to Jelly Bean using Odin. Brilliant it is and brings new life into the phone. It is smooth and fluid. It was the official firmware but not from Samsung site I followed a tutorial video here
Very easy to do.
zack, 01 May 2013Hey guys. Just to tell you, samsung is a gd brand. They may not have the best customer service... moreYeah, maybe. Maybe they are learning the official Jelly Bean Portugal that has some bugs.
zack, 01 May 2013Hey guys. Just to tell you, samsung is a gd brand. They may not have the best customer service... moreHaha. You have a point. The release date is april 1, and release it only in one country dude, only in portugal, and now its may 1, and its only available in portugal up to now. So where is jb. And they set again a date and yet tentative to official release. Like s advances dude. The official release is jan. And only now the they get the jb. Its super slow dude.
Anonymous, 27 Apr 2013i dont think so. cause if samsung realy want to give the updates.. that they promise.. our pho... moreHey guys. Just to tell you, samsung is a gd brand. They may not have the best customer service out there but you can't expect them to have all the answers right?! The official samsung released the official jellybean to galaxy ace 2 on 1st April 2013. they are sending out in batches. For what i know is that asian countries like us would probably get it much much later than others. So it's really worth the wait cos we should really expect very little as we are from asia. Yes they are crazy over their flagship phones and may seem to not care about us. But they do that's why they release the update. And oh, the update will then passed on to our respective samsung phili, indo, spore, aus and so on. And if ur country approve, then u will get it. Slow but surely u will get it.

ianalviansyah, 30 Apr 2013I heard a lot of news, especially in Indonesia existing firmware updates for jelly bean, just ... moreThat's I think depend on the available of Jelly Bean that the country has release it. If there isn't available Jelly Bean, no notification on your device.
I heard a lot of news, especially in Indonesia existing firmware updates for jelly bean, just connect your ace 2 with samsung Kies and notification will appear, and then upgrade. is that true? (portugal firmware maybe)
Samsung can lauch ace 3 that can runs 4.1.2 known as jeally bean thats why samsung cannot release jeally bean for ace 2.But ace 2 can upgraded jeally bean into manually but take note upgrade manually there are some bugs in your phone.
ikmal, 30 Apr 2013I'm still waiting too for the update. Still, if it doesn't come, I still like this phone. Some... moreYes, I am waiting too the official Jelly Bean here too. Still using Gingerbread till now I am satisfy enough.
I'm still waiting too for the update. Still, if it doesn't come, I still like this phone. Something that we need is a reliable phone (fast, useful, long lasting battery), not always the one with the newest software. And it's already in my hand now. :-)
melas, 29 Apr 2013i asked samsung indonesia in facebook,but there was no any respone....i hate it.. why don't t... moreYeah right dude, dont buy samsung anymore dude. They noy care about our feeling forget the update and sell our phone and buy another brand that keep their promises. To satisfy the custumer not to the company to make profit they make a fake promise. Maybe a few yearssamsung is down again because they do not know the importance of customer satisfaction.. and customer relation after sales. Samsumg f.u

They still testing the firmware. All we can do is wait or buy another phone.. samsung is busy to their new devices. I think their forget the promise. If i were you. Forget the update. Samsung are so lame. Do not trust samsung again dude.. they are big fat lair.. i will not buy a samsung product again. This is my last phone for samsung and my last tablet for samsung. F.u you samsung..we are tired of waiting..
Samsung is really getting me nervous. What the f*ck happened with the Jelly Bean update. First, it was said it'll be February, then it was changed officially to 22nd of April.. and now what? 22nd of may. Really poor support Samsung.. they only care about their high-end devices. So lame.
