According to SamMobile, the Galaxy S2 update to Jelly Bean has been delayed, again. This is the evolution of the expected release dates for this update: first, according to Samsung Sweden, the update should have came in November. Next, it was November-December, and now it became December-January. So Sammobile decided that this is not a reliable source. Their new source states this: The update for the open Europe version of the Galaxy S2 is ready to be released. But, since the news about the security flaw in the Exynos processors, Samsung may want to fix this first, before releasing the update. Also because Samsung want to release the update to all countries in no more than 2 weeks, this will also create a delay, because the preparations for each country take time. So, as it looks by now, the update will not arrive until 2013. The only hope is to get the update for at least one country, and that way all international models will be able to manually install the update, if they are up to it of course.
