AT&T Galaxy S2 Skyrocket Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update available

by: Chris SmithApril 9, 2013


More and more Galaxy S2 versions are getting their Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update these days, with AT&T’s Galaxy S2 Skyrocket being the last model reported to receive the software upgrade.

After seeing the T-Mobile Galaxy S2 Jelly Bean update rolling out the other day, it’s now time for AT&T Skyrocket owners to update their devices. As with other Galaxy S2 versions, the Skyrocket can be updated either over-the-air (OTA) or via Samsung KIES, Sam Mobile reports.

Among the new features you’ll get to experience with Jelly Bean we’ll mention the improved “buttery” performance, the Google Now search feature and a new TouchWiz Nature UX user interface. Obviously, there are many more Jelly Bean features to explore once the update is performed, so here’s a changelog with everything new in Jelly Bean.

While some of you are probably running their own Jelly Bean-based custom ROMs on the Skyrocket already, there are plenty of users out there that have not taken the unofficial route to Jelly Bean. In case you want to get yourself better acquainted with Jelly Bean, check out our hands-on videos that detail the differences between Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (above), but also between Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean (below).

As for Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, Samsung is yet to update any Galaxy S2 model to Google’s latest mobile OS version.

    Finally!!!! Hahaha!!!

  • So the S II got 4.1.2 and my S3 is still at 4.1..1

    S II got it first than S III? What kind of BS is this? and why is it taking AT&T that long to roll out the updates? Things like this that makes me want to flash a different ROM on it. AT&T is just like EA, they don’t care about their customers!
