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! Smiley Very Happy

Why would Samsung release 4.1.2 for the Skyrocket before the S3? This is so irritating.

Re: Galaxy SII Skyrocket - Update to Jellybean now available!

So I started the update over an hour ago, and Kies has been stuck on a "Firmware upgrade progress" screen at 0% for about an hour.

 

I understand it can take awhile, but how long is too long? And what do I do if something is wrong with it? My phone is stuck on the Android download screen. So I'm fairly certain it will not work properly if disconnected now. But am I supposed to wait multiple hours for something to happen?

Does the update to Jellybean wipe out all of my programs already installed?

I will answer the question to my last post for those interested - did the update, all settings saved from before update.  JB seems much better and less laggy than ICS.  So far, so good!

I noticed with the update that when I'm using the camera/video recorder - there is no longer a timer showing how much video recording time I have left.  Anyone else notice this?

Face Recognition removed from the update, what a bummer.

Works great on my work phone ( Verizon)

@redhot4400

I followed those instructions, waited 2 hours and never reached more than 0% progress, contacted Samsung's Support chat. they told me to unplug it and do an Emergency Firmware Recovery. I did that waited an hour at 0%, started over, waited 30 minutes, then waited 2.5 hours at 0%. I tried taking it to my AT&T store, they said they couldn't do anything. I tried Samsung Live Chat again, they said to take it to AT&T where they could "reflash the OS onto my device" or if that doesn't work I'm supposed to send it back to Samsung.

Re: Galaxy SII Skyrocket - Update to Jellybean now available!

hi, @ lyndsie41CE try to format your skyrocket full including internal USB storage first. in your pc clean all cache memory, install minimum DirectX9 and Dont Net Framework 3.5 or later from microsoft. another important matter is set up your Windows theme is windows classic style please. and the internet connection should be steady and powerful. 

 

Last time which ICS was available for Skyrocket many divices were bricked.

 

Best of luck

thanks in advance
