AnonD-113444, 16 Feb 2013I updated it last night. OTA had poped up. But I did it through Kies. Sadly its not Jelly Bean... moreActually my S2 came preloaded with ICS 4.0.4 and I bought it on this Jan 4th but after 2 days it started shutting itself off randomly when on idle mode. sometimes it lasts 3 days sometimes it shuts down within a day. and the battery drain is huge. I read that a lot of people are having the same problem. since then I was waiting for an update but sadly instead of JB we got a bug fix so i thought i should ask whether this update resolves these issues or not. If not then theres no point updating to this bug fix, I'd wait for JB. but if it does I will. And thanks for replying.

If your phone is doing nothing and its on airplane mode yet it lasts only 6-8 hours, then I will doubt the battery.
Btw, I assume OS is from OEM (Samsung) and not rooted android. If its rooted, then such a thing can happen. I had rooted (CM 7.2) Motorola XT5. Battery drained in less than 10hrs. But with OEM 2.1 Android it lasted 16-18 hrs.

Sadly its not Jelly Bean. Just a bug fix of some kind. Details are unclear. I am still looking for a changelog for the version. Also emailed Samsung.
However, so far I haven't faced an issue. My phone was fine without it, just that it consumed a lot of memory after the update from 4.0 to 4.0.4 last year. I cleared log data and some issues were solved.
If you are facing an issue, then I suggest you to update your device. After update, you may need to clear old data.
Settings> Applications> All> LogsProvider> Clear Data
back up your SMS, if important, although it shouldn't erase it.
