Galaxy S2 (SGH-i777) Jelly Bean Update?

With the latest Jelly Bean update rolling out to the Skyrocket varriant of the Galaxy S2, all versions of the SGS2 have not recieved the Jelly Bean update, except for the SGH-i777 model. (Across all carriers, models, etc)

 

With that, I just wanted to check in to see if there are any plans by AT&T to update the model referenced above.

 

If so, any expectation when we can expect that?

 

If not, any information as to why not would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Update is pretty much OK for me except ram usage has gone up. Not good for me cause I play lots of games on phone. Battery while using phone is about the same. When I shut of mobile data battery life is drastically improved! I am using a app called 2x battery and also power toggles to control mobile data setting.

Oh yeah it might be worth mentioning that 2x battery has a screen filter that can help battery life also.

Also for the SD issues I read about perhaps formatting SD card can help?

As far as battery life is concerned, immediately after the update I wasn't having an issue.  A few days later I was prompted to install (or update, I can't remember which one it was) Google Now.  After I did that my battery started to drastically drain faster.  I checked the settings within Google Now.  Then I turned it off.  I also checked the Location History/Settings in Google Maps.  I turned off "Report from this device", "Enable Location Sharing" and "Enable Location History".  Some of these settings seemed to have changed or were added after the update.  Anyway, after doing that my battery has seemed to perform basically the same as it did prior to the update.

After the Jelly Bean update I'm having problems searching through my Contacts when I am driving. When I am stopped by the side of the road my contacts are fine but as soon as I get above 15 MPH  and i try and search through my Contacts they immediatley shift back to the top of the page. I can't get to any other contacts while driving. I have tried to see what is going on with Driving Mode but it is not turned on and when I do turn it on nothing changes whether I am driving or not. Any thoughts?

I updated to JB, now my phone battery discharges way to fast, never had prblem before the update, just watching the battery meter, it loses 2% every couple of minutes. I use to go all day without a charge, now I have to watch the battery and charge it thought the day.

I've sent private messages to AT&T with my questions/concerns, and I've repeatedly received responses stating that I need to ask Samsung.  Is there a link to a Samsung support portal to which we should direct our questions?

I sent a private message and got an email to call the Warranty Service Center at 800.801.1101. I did a factory reset in the process on my current phone and it has helped the speed, freezing, and stuttering problems I was having. I don't really see a difference in battery drain and it still has a problem recognizing my SD card. Since it is still under warranty they are sending me a replacement. I just hope the replacement doesn't have these problems. I would suggest a factory reset for most problems.

Anyone notice the Gallery only working in Portrait view.  I'm almost positive the Gallery could be viewed in Landscape view prior to the update.

I just verified, Galery in 4.0.4 can be viewed in either portrait or landscape modes.

Thanks maxud.  I went back and checked.  The automatic rotate screen option had been unchecked for some reason.

For some reason I am now experiencing the lower battery performance too.  Previously, after I made the changes in a previous post, I was getting more or less the same battery life that I was getting prior to the update.  Over the past few days or so, the battery life has been cut in half.

 

The only noticeable difference that I can tell is that the Android System is running higher than it was previously.  I just checked the Battery Usage and it says Android System has used about 41% of the battery life.  Previously I believed I was getting closer to 20%.

 

Any ideas as to what would have increased Android System?

Can you describe what you mean by "the screen rotates up and don't change?"

This update is great! My phone was having a long list of problems with the previous ICS update, so I did a factory reset on my phone before updating to Jelly Bean to make sure I got a clean install. Every problem on my phone is now fixed and the UI improvements are excellent. I'm very pleased with this update.

 

My only complaint is that the autocompletion and predictive text with the keyboard seems to have taken a step backwards. Under ICS, the keyboard was amazingly forgiving with typos. I could type every other letter incorrectly in a word and the correct word would get inserted automatically as soon as I hit the space bar. With the JB update, it just inserts the whatever garbage I typed along with all my typos, even though I can see the correct word sitting in the first slot in the suggestion bar above the keyboard. 

 

I reviewed the keyboard settings and selected Predictive Text (which is turned on). A lot of the predictive text settings were turned off, so I turned them all on, but they don't seem to be working. For example:

 

Word Completion (supposed to complete the word after typing a few letters and hitting the space bar). It's turned on but isn't completing the words. My word completion point is set to 3 letters. It suggests the word to complete, but that's not the one that's highlighted, so when I hit the space bar, it just inserts a space after my incomplete word.

 

Spell Correction (supposed to attempt to remove any typos from my input). It's turned on but also not working.

 

Next Word Prediction (supposed to predict the next word I'm going to type based on my typing history). Again, it's turned on but not doing anything.

 

Auto Substitute (supposed to use the auto-substitute list to map patterns from the left side of the list to the words on the right side of the list. For example, change "dont" to "don't".) It's turned on but not working.

 

Recapture (supposed bring up the list of suggested words again as you backspace over a word) Turned on but not working.

 

Auto-append: I'm not sure what this is supposed to do, but nothing seems to be automatically appending to any of the words I type, even though it's turned on.

 

Regional Correction: I don't care about this, so I have it turned off.

 

I tried rebooting, but still none of the Predictive Text features seem to be working. Is this working for anybody?
