ACEr, 02 Jun 2013can you post their message here?I asked it at Samsung service center at SM calamba laguna. They told me.that we dont have a chamce.to get that update. I'm very disappointed.
AnonD-112485, 31 May 2013Please tell us if you have any serious issues(bugs) in this JB firmware. Thanks :-)as far as i`m usig it for 5 days there ar no bugs!
Android smartphone that come wih preloaded Jelly Bean will be better than we upgrade our device that use old Android OS. From my Galaxy Ace 2, I had experienced bad lag when streaming YouTube, while for example Chrome or Opera Classic is still running.
Guys i think i want to buy this phone next week, so i want to ask you all, this phone is great or bad? and this phone android version is 2.3 (ginger bread) or we have to upgrade v4.1.2 (Jelly Bean)?? im so confused right now.

AnonD-19306, 01 Jun 2013now try jb uk :)I think my recent Jelly Bean on my device is enough. :-)
So far, it is better than Portugal Jelly Bean. I still like it. If you had installed UK Jelly Bean, share it here.

If we install jellybean manually without .pit files then the ace 2 will have 486 mb RAM in jellybean,so phone suffers from lag.
This freaking SAMSUNG has deceived us all...let us also annoy it by flooding its inbox with our comments and queries on Jellybean in ACE 2. Now all of us should contact samsung support for that. Are you ready frens???????
i have upgraded my ace 2 from Gingerbread to jelly bean uk firmware & there is no problem till now, there is only 1 issue to mount my sdcard to extsdcard (directory bind) not working.
All jelly bean versions are full of bugs very slow and consumes RAM very much dont upgrade to jelly bean stay in stock gingerbread for stable and fast operation
toru, 01 Jun 2013Which OS Is the best for ace 2 GB or jellybean please share with us who already updated their ... moreFrom my experience using my Galaxy Ace 2 running Jelly Bean, I think stay in Gingerbread is a good choice.
1. Leak Jelly Bean (XXMB4)
I had tried it, it lags in many area, consumed many RAMs. Skype had notification. No problem with SMS notification.
2. Jelly Bean Portugal (XXMC8)
I had tried it. First time, it good, almost no complaint, but several days it became lag, messaging is slow, had ever experienced bad lag that almost can't be stopped when streaming YouTube, browsing via Chrome, and play AVP: Evolution. Consumed many RAMs. But Skype was still has notification. No problem with SMS notification.
3. Final Indonesia Jelly Bean (XXMD4)
Well, it goods in messaging, better performance compared to Portugal Jelly Bean. But these the lack of this firmware I think:
a. No notification on Skype (icon shown on the top. But, when I received IM,I can hear the sound (no notification IM that appears on the top)
b. I experienced bad lag again streaming YouTube yesterday (I thought that happen when the free RAM was low), bad lag too when play Dark Avengers (sometimes). The bad lag was like in Portugal Jelly Bean, almost couldn't be stopped.
c. Consumed RAM, say I just have 2 or 3 chattting applications that I download, the device just give me free RAM not more than 160 MB, sometimes below 110 MB. Gingerbread was better, gave me more than 200 MB free RAM.
d. Now, the notification for SMS not working since yesterday. All settings are alright, the delivery report is not working, only vibrate that tells me. If the vibrate is turned off, no sound, but it receives text message (there is number 1 on the message icon when I receive message). I had tried restart my device, it is still the same, no notification on the SMS. Any idea?
So, stay in Gingerbread is better. But, if there is smartphone is preloaded with Jelly Bean when it it released, that's maybe better.
