  1. At last

  2. Hooray

  3. Great!!!

  4. YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

  5. “Preliminär” doesn’t mean it will be released then
    Just means they have planned to release it then.
    But as we know Samsung by now it can mean Christmas.

  6. Gr8. But what about Touchwiz nature ??? I need it tooo :) :)

  7. Wow! Pop up play? I wasn’t expecting that! Great! now I want JB even more :)

  8. That is good enough, as long that it has Project Butter on it and most bug with UI fixed!!!! So, the roll out for Asia should be at the latest near the end of Q4 or at the super late period in the middle of February – I know your habbits Sammy!!! But all this still have to wait and see how the firmware do actually live up to its hype. Other fancy functions on Note 2 and Galaxy S3 won’t be on S2 then I assumed (i.e. mute by palm hovering over the phone, for a start).

  9. It would be interestinng to see how S2 performs vs S3 with the same 4.1. If it is close and more battery saving then there is no need to buy S3 or Note 2 :) Another year without having to buy new phone – saves money.

  10. DannyD, when you said Samsung high end phones will get updates before next year, is that a promise or another assunption? Because “before next year” means before New Year arrives. And, “High end phones”, smart but vague.

  11. Galaxy Tab 7.7 Update In ##### ???????

  12. Who knows when this tablet upgrade to android 4.0.4, Russia and other countries are tired of waiting. Samsung has updated Austria and some other countries. Date in the Russian service support not say, and all messages on this matter is removed.

  13. It s good news

  14. What about i9100G

  15. Note-Update in Q4?
    –> Q4 is….. now! Where is it?

  16. You will not get the nature UI.
    Every S device user their own UI.

  17. gr8 news

  18. will the s2 get touchwiz nature ux?

  19. DannyD, this nature UI, is it only exclusive to S3 becasue of the software limitation (if there is one), or hardware limitation? What kind of UI has Note 2 got? And will the future Galaxy S series be equipped with “nature UI”?

  20. Geez, this is one thing that I wish Samsung get it united and unified – the UIs. As someone has mentioned before, it is very fragmented both in hardware and software – consumers have a chance of attending a psych ward for this. But, of course, this is the price we (consumers) pay for using open sources – variability. Create a competition with other phone makers, yes. But don’t do it within the brand, because you would not want to have comsumers comparing Samsung Phones to which one is better in firmwares and UI. I wonder if HTC, Motorola, Acer, ASUS sell diffrent firmwares and UIs for each of their new releases.

  21. I think, the bottom line is, get a new phone. And hopefully you would be able to use it with your friend because each Samsung phone is equipped with different set functions that came with the firmware.
    “I have got this, but you don’t”,
    “Hey, I don’t have what you have”.
    For NFC is freaking understandable. But for the rest of the common operatable functions…….huuum

  22. Yeaaaaahhhhhhhhhh thanks to samsung for their fucking update rythm

  23. What does “2 Home screen modes”?

  24. Hooray! Thanks!

  25. The Swedish will get it in November month and Note & Note 10.1 will get it in fourth quarter, how is that different, since November is half way through fourth quarter already?

  26. By the way, aren’t we already one foot in Q4?

  27. everyone asking if this will have the nature ux.. i think so, if the video i watched was to be believed.. you can search it up on youtube, search this “epic 4g jelly bean leak” click on the first vid by febandpro.. its a leak for the epic 4g, sprint s2.. and theres a thread for it too in xda.. its just not stable for everyone’s use.. cheers..

  28. They don’t even release jelly bean for S3 this month. How come they will release jelly bean for S2 on November. Come on Samsung, prove to us were right choosing you!!!

  29. And the S advance?

  30. I hate the Samsung releasedate information that starts with a “Q”…most of the time you have to add 1 or more “Q’s”

  31. good news :)

  32. What about GALAXY Mini II?
    When I can get update? Next year or next two year?

  33. Samsung needs to consolidate their hardware and software. They are spreading themselves too thin and are now starting to frustrate the customer. Example why not release one firmware for each continent? At the end it will be easier to update the firmware, more affordable, and timely?

    I will agree with BeyongGalaxy, it doesn’t make sense for the same hardware to have different features especially in the same continent.

    Does anyone know why they do this?

  34. If the original note gets jellybean then why doesn’t the tab 7.7 get the same upgrade since there exactly the same phone with a 2.5″ larger screen??

  35. Well, should i have be happy after 4 month of waiting? No! Samsung should offer 2 Roms 1. Touchwiz crap and 2.untouched Google Rom the only way to get out off this slow update mess.
    My next Nexus Smartphone is LG so LG is my next Smartphone, Touchwiz no thanks and bye Samsung!

  36. Galaxy SII Lite Brasil???????????

  37. Every time a new update is released for Australia if i click the information i get details about the update but it never lists Australia as a region. The regions listed are no where near us here. Is this update really for Australia or is samsung just using a UK update for us down here with a Aussie CSC?
    GT-N8010 – Australia
    PDA: N8010XWALI6
    CSC: N8010XSAALI1
    Version: 4.0.4
    Date: 2012-09-28
    Regions: Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom

  38. You know yourself so much trouble getting Android 4.0.4 update yet for various countries go , then turn your head away from the food you eat
    Please Android 4.1 Jelly Bean faster between the supports are for all phones on your site

  39. when Samsung releases firmware (jelly bean) for samsung galaxy S advance?

  40. getting mad to get jb on sgs2………. please roll it out soon.. don’t just plan roll out it.

  41. please tell a date for the roll out for jelly bean on sgs2

  42. Good news.. I wait ..

  43. I dont believe

  44. SWEDEN, YOU HAVE LAST 4 DAYS :-)

  45. I hate this company for wrong informations, be kept waiting, technical supportsss….. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  46. I am an existing user and i don’t want to update my phone with leaked roms because i don’t want to lose application settings. And i don’t have money to by a new phone in such a short while, just for android version. Pottential customers does not mind this. They have no applications and they may buy S 2, ignoring the android version. So you are only suffering us, not making upper models more attractive with such a behaviour. Please give us that firmware and please don’t cause us wait for galaxy note ans galaxy S. We don’t have a pen or lower hardware configuration. Just please!
