Just days after the official ROM leaked on the web, Android 4.0.4 update for Samsung Galaxy SII has begun to roll out with Russia getting the update first and followed by other countries in the next coming months.
It may not be the Jelly Bean update that youâ€™re hoping for, but it’s a good start. According to our source, the update can be done via OTA or Samsung Kies. This update aims to fix some bugs and improve the overall stability and performance of the SGS II.
If you think that â€œin the next coming monthsâ€ seems too long of a wait time, our source provided a step-by-step instruction on how to get the update manually. Just a reminder, we will not be responsible for any damage that this manual upgrade will cause to your device.
A lot of you got disappointed with our recent post about your beloved Samsung Galaxy S2 probably not getting the buttery OS. But credit my fellow guest writer for clarifying in his article that these are just speculations for now and therefore should be taken lightly.
â€œThere arenâ€™t any basis for these findings and the words that we need to hear should come directly from Samsung themselves.â€
In our humble opinion, it’s still too early to call if Samsung will indeed give SGSII users a taste of the Google’s buttery OS. Heck, the search giant still hasnâ€™t released a Jelly bean update for their own devices (Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus and Nexus Q) let alone for other devices.
For now we just have to wait and see how this will all turn out but this small incremental update should tell us that the once King of the Hill is on the right path on getting an Android 4.1 update if ever there will be one.
