Galaxy S2 I9100 has received the real deal from Samsung. A leaked version of the latest update XXLSJ containing Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean has made its place on the internet and thousands of users are already installing it on their phones.
This is actually a test version of the upcoming update, but it normally doesn't have bugs, maybe small ones that should be fixed untill the final version comes. From what the users that installed are saying, the OS works buttery smooth indeed and it is also really stable.
The fact that this test version is so good, almost perfect I could say, is a good sign that Samsung will release the official update soon now. The end of November seems to be the date.
Here's what Jelly Bean is offering new for Galaxy S2 i9100:
- Project Butter --> increased stability and smooth performance
- TouchWiz Nature UX --> same as SGS3 and Note 2
- Cloud Services from Samsung
- Pop-up play features
- Direct Call
- Smart stay
- 2 Home screen modes
- Updated Notification bar
- Google Now
If you want to install update XXLSJ Jelly Bean for Galaxy S2 you will have to do it with ODIN because as we said this is a LEAKED version, not an official one. So be very careful and make sure you know what you are doing.
