I have installed official jelly bean MG2 4.1.2 for galaxy ace2 through kies. Its really smooth than the gingerbread version. No freezing problems. But it consumes more ram. By default you have only 482mb ram. But you can increase that to 624mb. Go through the link below. After I increased my ram to 624mb, still my ram usage is more than 500mb without running any apps.

ILA, 07 Dec 2013Dear Galaxy Ace 2 users don't upgrade to Jelly bean(4.1.2) os its very laggy ostoo late - it did it automatically.
Every Jelly bean update for this phone is a disaster. display keeps freezing for minutes at a time and usually when you need it urgently.
I've had three jelly been updates now - every one is bad.
I have used this phone for about a year now. Using Gingerbread at first, it ran very smoothly with no lags. However, after I updated it to Jelly Bean, it lags frequently and I usually have to wait about three minutes for it to respond again. Overall, it was a very bad experience for me. I suggest the HTC Desire 601 which have better specs and a lower price.
waiting for the Official KitKat update for our Galaxy Ace 2. can't wait :D
