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!

Just an update.  I did a hard reset this morning.  2+ hours later I have my phone mostly set up again how I had it.  The SD Card still is not recognized by the phone.  So don't bother with a reset if that's your only problem.

 

Hoping the reset will at least make my batter last like it did with ICS.

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.

Re: Galaxy S2 (SGH-i777) Jelly Bean Update?

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?"
