    Yo, Steef the beef, maybe you should practice some speech restraint boy. It is Q4 – wake up bro. December will be gone in about 6 weeks. Maybe Samsung is busy with one hand preoccupied with something else. Chilled out.

    The world would be so great if NOBODY would announce any updates! Because no one could nag or cry or pity himself for not getting the update on time!

    In the future it would be grate to disable comments on news regarding Samsung Updates!

    Anyone waiting for S2 updates to 4.1 don’t be surprise if the update will be moved to Q1 2013 because Samsung might not gave sold that much of S3 as media reported. Otherwise why do they emphasize the updates on S3 still, even when they have rolled out some updates for S3 already. It should be S2 by now and the rest of the compatible phones getting 4.1.1 and then rolled out 4.1.2 for the latest phones. That is fairer for consumers all round and none will not feel that they are being neglected.

    Damijanz, that is the way to go. Operation silence. I agree on this one from consumer point of view. But it is negative for Samsung especially when they need to stir up market to boost sales. Media is everything.

    @ BeyongGalaxy

    Maybe you should have read this thread earlier so you would have known that my actions were towards a swearing person (but the ***** were deleted). That said, Q4 isn’t over unless it’s januari 1st. But even if Samsung decides to upgrade the S2 to 4.1 in januari they do a very good job in comparison to other OEM’s. How many devices did HTC upgrade to Android 4.1? or Motorola, or Sony, or LG etc etc. OEM’s shouldnt upgrade their devices, just leave em the way they. That would mean people won’t get irritated of waiting or suprises like poor battery life. Would make life easier haha.

    @ibladar First of all JB updates are already in India, check firmware files.

    Second thing I wanna mention, coming here just to tell us that you will change from Samsung to Apple would make me tell you that no body cares.

    Last thing I wanna say, Changing from a company to another just because updates were kinda late is kinda dumb, sorry for that but why waiting for an update to improve my mobile while it’s already working good?! so either you wait like everyone is waiting or just change without telling us, Again, no body cares.

    First of all, for all of you winning about updates.
    If when you bought a samsung (not nexus) you thought that you where getting all the updates with little or no time of waiting, let me tell you just one thing. Bad choice in buying an android BASED phone.
    If you wanted quick updates for android, buy an ANDROID PHONE (all the nexus), otherwise you may, or may not, get updates 6 month to 1 year after an android branch is released to ANDROID PHONES(nexus). Or even better, NEVER!!!! (That’s for you SII owners).

    However, if you’re on ICS and really, really, REALLY want JB, just flash a JB release on your phone. Works perfectly. I’m from Portugal and i’m using the latest firmware for I9300 (India at the time)..

    That said. cheers mates!!

    Nice comment.
    And I’ll certainly flash 4.1.2 when it reaches here.
    Flashed 4.1.1 no problem so smooth.
    Why should I wait if it’s here.

    @ModyDante…. Ok Mr. If the updates are already available then why don’t I see them either on keis nor is it available OTA?

    Just because you are commenting on a forum doesn’t make you a geek or anything better.. So you better think twice before you call ppl dumb. Going by your words I could have stuck to my old Samsung galaxy s2 or any other mobile without having to upgrade to something better cause it already worked fine.. (IT JUST PROVES HOW STUPUD YOU ARE.. YOU NOOB) So do you mean to say buying new things or wanting to upgrade is dumb? And it doesn’t bother me if you care or not cause your just another idiot working in a shift round the clock answering ppl over the forums.. And that’s your job not myn.. So deal with it BITCH..!

    Damn Samsung yet not received the jelly bean update 4.1.1 in India and they are talking about 4.1.2. First try to update all to 4.1.1 then should dream about any other thing.
    we were said the update will be available from September its mid November now still waiting for the update.

    I am completely frustrated with Samsung.

    Samsung not organize when it comes to updating. Finish with 4.1.1 for those who are yet to get it before releasing 4.1.2.
