Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket Getting Jelly Bean Update

Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket (model number SGH-i727) is now being updated to Android 4.1.2. The phone is an AT&T exclusive and was released back in November 2011 running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Later, it got the Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich treatment and now Jelly Bean sweetness awaits you either over-the-air or via Samsung Kies. Sadly though, the update is only available if you use Kies, Samsung’s desktop software for Windows and Mac. There is no an over-the-air rollout unfortunately, so you’ll have to use this method.

The update brings with it all the niceties of the first iteration of Jelly Bean, including Google Now, Project Butter, expandable and actionable notifications, as well as some things that are specific to this phone model. Browser bar, Drive Mode, AT&T Locker, Mobile Hot Spot, and a Featured Apps widget are now preinstalled. Qik and MSpot are removed. Also, call quality should get a boost.
