Anonymous, 29 Jan 2013Why there has been no update releases to other countries for jelly bean after releasing to Spa... moreWe should be happy that Samsung started rolling out update before Feb schedule. Wait for few more days it will come for other countries too. If u cant wait u can install Spain jelly bean through Odin.
Why there has been no update releases to other countries for jelly bean after releasing to Spain (23/1) and China (24/1)?
GSMarena, please do the review of the SII with 4.1.2 JB :)
It's not the same phone at all :)

if u are a heavy gamer, then t... moreHi
It costs so much thn y still these issues? Hey when u say heavy gaming...u mean using hd games or gaming for log time???
popa, 26 Jan 2013thanq but i wanna know if it is fully charged how many hours it takes before it went to 0% wz ... moreI dont think it's good to charge the phone from 0%, it will kill the battery soon, charge the phone battery about 7%.
Guys, after one year of great experience with this phone, i am now having a little issue, the battery notification keeps blinking, and battery performance is not as it was before, it charges to 100 percent faster and drains faster too! i am sure its not the battery issue because i have replaced it but the issue remains. Also, despite removing the phone from charge, the phone falsely shows that the phone is charging. i think its the issue of the micro-usb port! Pls suggest what should be done!
Aria.. thanks for your views. i just wanna know how is the S II after jelly bean update. i mean is it lagging,slow or any other problem.. pls share your views. waiting for your valuable reply
I'm in the UK and I purchased a 2nd hand one of these from ebay a few days ago. When it arrived it turned out it was a Romanian hadnset with Romania's Vodaphone. So I downloaded Jelly Bean 4.1.2 from androidegeeks website and installed it with Odin. Now it's a perfect handset and it was so easy and cheap to do. androidegeeks website gives you a step by step guide on how to do it too. That should keep me going for another year or two. Hope this helps someone else too.
,,,, 27 Jan 2013i have a feeling jellybean will the last update for this device... hopefully not.Yah.. maybe.. me also think this jelly bean update will be the last because the improvement that android brings in so biggy and maybe lag for this phone.. hope not.. :)
hey everyone. i live in Panama and i have jelly bean in my S2, so that means everyone can have it, lol :P what i did (and what all of u should do if u want jelly bean NOW) is flash it with ODIN.
i downloaded the firmware version that was released in Spain at sammobile then flashed it, guiding myself with a guide to do this at android geeks website: http://www.android.gs/how-to-update-samsung-galaxy-s2-i9100-to-official-android-4-1-2-jelly-bean-xwls8-firmware/
follow those instructions and you will have Jelly Bean in your phone in no time.
i didnt feel the necessity to do a factory reset, everything worked flawlessly after i flashed jelly bean (i had ICS 4.0.4, which i flashed also, cuz my s2 came with 4.0.3). you can still do the factory reset, just to be safe.
i havent had any problems with my phone running JB, so if u do EXACTLY as the website says, u should be good to go :).
G.M.K, 26 Jan 2013hi sandy..
im waiting for long time for JB.. you have any idia abt JB in india..Hi G.M.K,
Looking at Samsung's update history JB update should be available in couple of months in India.
