How To Update AT&T Samsung Galaxy S2 To Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean
AT&T customers who own the Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket will be happy to know that Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean has been released for the smartphone. The AT&T Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket was a variant of the Samsung Galaxy S2 with the inclusion of a 4G LTE radio to run on AT&T's high-speed network, something the original Samsung Galaxy S2 did not feature. The smartphone was released in November 2011, so it's great that both AT&T and Samsung are still providing updates for this smartphone.
You can update your Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket by either downloading and updating via Samsung's KIES software, or applying an OTA (over the air) update. To apply an over the air update, go into the Settings application, tap About phone, tap System Updates, and you should receive a message that an update is available. Your Galaxy S2 Skyrocket will download and install the update and reboot a few times. Once your Skyrocket is back, you'll be greeted with all of the sweet features Jelly Bean has to offer. Some of the standout features of this update include:
- Buttery Smooth Performance and Great Stability (Thanks to Project Butter)
- Full User Interface Revamp (Same UI as of the Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II)
- TouchWiz Nature UX
- Samsung's S Cloud Services
- Improved Camera Features
- New Lockscreen With Many Customization Options
- New Features Like Direct Call, Smart Stay And Pop-up Play
- New Widgets (From Galaxy S III)
- 2 Home Screen Modes
- New Notification Bar With More Notification Toggles
- Google Now
It's a great way to breathe some new life into a smartphone that's been on the market since 2011. Some smartphones released in 2012 have yet to see Jelly Bean. So, big props to AT&T and Samsung for looking out for consumers still using the Galaxy S2 Skyrocket.
