After showing you a new Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean leak for the Galaxy S3, which happens to bring various Galaxy Note 2 apps to the handset, multi-window view included, it’s now time to look at a similar leak for the older Galaxy S2.
Unlike its successor that has recently started receiving the Jelly Bean update, the Galaxy S2 is still waiting for Samsung to roll out its own Jelly Bean version. Those of you that still rely on the Galaxy S2 for daily smartphone operations and don’t want to wait for the official Jelly Bean upgrade or don’t want to install other Jelly Bean-based custom ROMs can try out test firmware version I9100XXLSJ that has just been leaked.
Sam Mobile reports that the Android 4.1.2 firmware for the Galaxy S2 is “the first ever” such leak for the handset, and comes from xda-developers forum member izap.
Like always, make sure you follow the appropriate steps when installing custom software on your handset and remember that you’re the only person responsible for whatever happens with your device during the process and that we’ll never encourage you to install test firmware versions on your devices.
A release date for the Galaxy S2 Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update is not yet available, although we expect Samsung to roll it out by the end of the year.
