With all the hype surrounding the Android Jellybean update for the popular flagship Samsung Galaxy S3, a Jellybean ROM has surfaced for the ex-flagship Galaxy S2, bringing in new features and an updated UI.
The Android 4.1.2 Jellybean ROM mentioned is a “test firmware” so there are still bugs to be squashed but according to SamMobile the ROM is already stable.
Below are some enhancements in the new Jellybean update:
- Buttery Smooth Performance & Great Stability (Thanks to Project Butter)
- New TouchWiz Nature UX (Same UI as of the Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II)
- Samsung’s Cloud services
- Direct Call, Smart Stay and Pop-up Play Features
- New Widgets From the Galaxy S III
- 2 Home screen modes
- New Notifications bar
- Google Now
Take note that the ROM is a PRE-RELEASE version and is not official from KIES. The official ROM would probably be released soon.
If you want to flash the ROM on your S2 you can download it at www.SamMobile.com. Take note that there’s a risk of bricking your device when flashing so please take the necessary precautions.
