Samsung Galaxy 2 Skyrocket users received their Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update via AT&T a few weeks ago. This had left owners of the original Galaxy S2 in a flounder, if they would have any update for their Jelly Bean versions. Samsung have given such users reason to breathe easy as the update is now available via their Kies application. Users would need to download and install Kies on their computer and then get the update by connecting the S2 to the computer. Installation would start automatically once the application has been copied to the device. Chances of the update being available for installing off the air are remote. Users are therefore being advised to download the Samsung Kies application to their PC.
The present OS on the old Galaxy S2 is Ice Cream Sandwich, which when replaced with Android Jelly Bean will give its users a better interface to work on. Multitasking and stock apps browsing would also be a better experience after the new OS is installed on the device. There are also other features that would be better to work with once the update has been affected like the camera for taking pictures and videos and the calendar app.
The present OS and its working experience by users have not come up with any major issues as of now. But that would not be so in the near future. The Galaxy S2 itself is a device of age, being two years in existence in the market. With technology advancing at a crazy pace, a device even a year old is considered archaic as there always is a new device that arrives onto the scene wooing consumers with better features and performance. However, with Jelly Bean on-board, Galaxy S2 users can still consider to be of age, at least on the software front.
