Galaxy SII Skyrocket - Update to Jellybean now available!

Hi folks,

As I'm sure many of you have been excited and waiting for this update, it seems that the Jelly Bean Update (Version 4.1.2/ Build I727UCMC1) for the Samsung Galaxy SII Skyrocket is available through Samsung Kies.

The update includes the following:

- Google Now
- Improved call quality
- New AT&T apps such as AT&T DriveMode and AT&T Locker
- Removes Qik and MSpot apps

Remember to download the latest version of Samsung Kies before trying to download the update!

Enjoy! 😄

@Evandela last time i upgrade ICS in same laptop and same OS. few hours before i tried it with latest Kies, and also dontnet framework 4.5 installed in my system and a high end internet connection like 2mbps speed. but after i click the option firmware update button the next dialog box came inside blank like i attached above post. i also know the T-mobile SII JB is like 800MB. i think AT&T server problem in this JB for Skyrocket topics is going on>>

That is possible or it could be Kies hanging a bit too. Keep on trying. Reinstall Kies if no changes within 48 hours at least

It runs very very smoothly. It's very beautiful, it looks very very similar to the GS3 software.

Yeah, a lot of people are sure to like this update! It's very fluid and pretty. Must give Samsung credit for this one. They have outdone themselves. 🙂

I live in Austin, TX.  I asked Google Now for the current temperature.  It gave it to me in Celsius.

How do I make the default Fahrenheit?

Samsung Kies Latest version is :      version 2.5.3.13033_7       But from Samsung website if it is downloaded then the version is not latest. After installed the older version it needs to be updated to version 2.5.3.13033_7. LOL !! then why Samsung put the older version in their webpage ??
April 10th and 11th I tried several time via latest Kies to upgrade AT&T Samsung Galaxy SII Skyrocket  Android ICS to Jelly Bean. Everything is installed properly and Kies detect Skyrocket well and also showing the JB firmware. But while I click the update button in Kies the next dialog box come but its transparent and it hang like that only. Nothing else. How disturbing situation??
No Samsung USA official webpage update for Skyrocket announced:
http://www.samsung.com/us/support/SupportOwnersFAQPopup.do?faq_id=FAQ00050212&fm_seq=55187
 Even directly no AT&T announced??
But Kies is showing the update??
