android_4-1_jelly_bean_0

Samsung has just started to roll out Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy Ace 2 (GT-I8160). You might not be able to update your device to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean right away as the update is rolling out in phases. So, it might not yet be available for your country but don’t worry the update will arrive soon.

You can update your Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 (GT-I8160) through Samsung KIES or via OTA. Make sure you fully charge your device’s battery before upgrading as the update is quite big.

Official Firmware Details:
Android Version: 4.1.2 – Build JZO54K
PDA: I8160XXMC8
CSC: I8160TMNMC3
MODEM: I8160XXMC8
Build Date: 26 March 2013
Changelist: 1016990

All the new Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean Firmwares for the Galaxy Ace 2 (GT-I8160) are present in our Firmware Section as well. You can use our Firmware Section to manually update your device if for some reason you can’t officially update your device via Samsung Kies or via OTA as you are using a Custom ROM or if your country has yet not received the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean Update.

If you have a Galaxy Ace 2 with the 4.1.2 update installed, please send us some screenshots.

Thanks josippp3

    Good, Mini 2 must be the next… But some guy on GSMArena trolls that he contacted Samsung and that they said it won’t be released due to some compatibility issues… He better be joking.

        A trusted individual responded:

        “Of course there will be the update, as there are no incompatibilities with Mini 2 (MSM7227A SoC is fully supported on Jelly Bean).”

        Good news :D

      I am running this firmware, although I’m not from Portugal. Besides a TMN logo at start-up and a few portuguese apps that can be uninstalled the usual way without the need of root, the firmware is flawless. Of course the lag when accesing dialer is present, just like 99 % of Samsung devices.

            Para Zoleck y los que quieran probar la rom de portugal en GT-I8160L algunos ya sabran el procedimiento otros no pero una pequeña explicacion de como hacerlo deben descargar la rom que esta aca en sammobile para el modelo GT-I8160 deben tener KIES en la pc para que sea reconicido el driver edl cel a la hora de usar ODIN la descargan y descomprimen el rar les quedara un archivo tar.md5 que es la rom luego descargan ODIN V3.07 lo ejecutan como administrador una vez abierto el programa seleccionan la casilla del lado derecho PDA y colocan el archivo que se descomprimió del rar.
            Luego el cel debe tener un 80% de carga quitar sim y micro sd entrar en modo recovery que es VOL+,HOME,POWER y hacer un wipe data/factory reset y un wipe cache partition esto para evitar errores a la hora de cargar el nuevo software para desplazarce a estos dos puntos con Vol- o + y se ejecuta con Home luego de haber hecho esto le dan reboot system now cargara nuevamente de fabrica el sistema OJO PERDERAN TODA INFORMACION HACER ANTES UN RESPALDO DE LA INFO DEL CEL.
            ya hecho todo esto entrar en modo Download en el cel VOL-,HOME,POWER les saldra una advertencia sobre el riesgo y cosas asi le dan VOL+ para continuar por lo que quedara listo para flashear conectar el cel a la PC y automaticamente en el programa ODIN en la casilla ID:COM aparecera un numero eso es que ya reconocio el cel luego con la rom ya montada en odin le dan START y empieza la carga del nuevo firmware por nada del mundo desconectar el cel de la PC una vez cargado aparece el la casilla de arriba en color verde y automáticamente reinicia el teléfono y ya tendrian JB 4.1.2 si por X motivo falla no pasa nada vuelven hacer el mismo procedimiento aclaro también que al hacer esto si el teléfono esta en garantía la pierde y también ACLARO QUE A MI NO ME FUNCIONO YA QUE NO RECONOCIO EL SIM DE MI OPERADOR en mi pais pero zoleck dice que hay una forma de tener red, espero que en otros países si sirva y puedan tener la nueva rom 4.1.2

        download firmware, download Odin 3

        make sure your phone has 80% battery or more
        make sure that USB Debugging is checked on

        Settings>Applications>Development>USB Debugging

        after that

        Extract the downloaded firmware and open odin
        click the “PDA” button and select the firmware you extracted
        …MAKE SURE THAT ONLY “AUTO REBOOT AND F. RESET TIME” are the ones that are checked

        go into download mode by turning off your phone

        then press n hold “VOLUME DOWN + HOME BUTTON + POWER BUUTON”

        you will encounter a warning there… just press the “volume up button”

        once you are in download mode, your phone screen will say “Downloading do not turn off target”

        then connect your phone to PC via USB Cable

        Odin will say “Added!” then you can press start… it may take awhile before it finishes… it will reboot after then poof! you are at jelly bean 4.1.2

          I had read about that issue (482 MB RAM) on Indonesia language blog.

          The 624 MB looks better, but I don’t know in fact, Galaxy Ace 2 uses so many RAMs.

      Yes ken, I saw deeper on my Galaxy Ace 2 performance decreased from yesterday, yes there was lag issue. Firsr time I install official Jelly Bean, the AnTuTu Benchmark score was 5.967. Today I test again, it is 3.976. The messaging or writing system is not fast as fast I experience d after install official Jelly Bean.

      • ken_alpha24 2 years ago said:

        yes i tested my benchmark also, results were 5k and below, now that my RAM increased, the lagging issue is not much of a problem anymore, i think there are still some bugs on the firmware which makes it laggy and some bloatwares… overall, the performance is good enough… but because the firmware update is big, it will eventually lessen the memory on the phone which makes it slower

          I think so. I thought it bring faster performance, now it is different. A little bit lag, but overall I like Jelly Bean. :-)

            Well initially I was impressed with Tmn version once I’d put leaked one on first so there is 624mb ram not 480. But then I started seeing that my once great battery life was no more. Even worse it sometimes lagged badly. 10 seconds to open camera app or reply to a text is frustrating. I decided to downgrade to gingerbread and now see that there could be a problem. Gb runs much smoother and things like 3g reception and lag are much better. Scroll rate is slower and you get inferior Web browser but download opera and halo launcher and it’s nearly as good. The phone just feels quick and much happier on gingerbread. The notifications bar is easier to see. Does
            jellybeans ideally need faster and 1gb ram? Runs well on girlfriends galaxy 2 although her battery life is awful. Barely gets through a day. I can make it through 2 days with Gb on the ace2 and that’s more useful than a couple of extra features and slightly slicker ui. I’ll still upgrade when we get official UK update though. Hopefully that will run better.

        I don’t know.. maybe i did something wrong :/ i was following this steps:

        Download Android 4.1.2 XXMC8 firmware from here.
        Extract the contents on your computer.
        Download Odin 1.85 from here.
        Switch your Galaxy device off and boot it into Download Mode by pressing and holding Volume Down, Home and Power buttons simultaneously. Release the keys when Download Mode appears.
        Launch Odin exe file on your computer and connect Galaxy Ace 2 to it using a USB cable. ODIN will display an added!! message once your device is successfully connected.
        Next, click on the PDA button on Odin and load the XXMC8 I8160 .tar.md5 file.
        Ensure to disable the Re-partition option if it’s enabled. Do not tinker with any other default settings of Odin.
        Press START to initiate the installation process of this latest OTA update for your Galaxy Ace 2 I8160 device. The installation would take a few minutes. When it’s done, your smartphone will reboot automatically. Disconnect it from the computer then.

          ok, because you go directly from GB to JB it will really lag because the RAM was lessen… try to download the latest Gingerbread firmware on your country for your device and flash it with odin… now ( listen very carefully )

          download the leaked Jelly Bean which is MB4

          after you downgraded to GB, extract the leaked JB firmware and there will be 2 files… one is file :

          1. CODE = use this as the PDA ( dont extract)

          2. CSC = use as CSC in odin ( dont extract, PIT is here )

          go and flash this leaked JB on Odin to your phone, after that, set up your blah blah blah on phone…

          go to download mode again and now flash the Official 4.1.2 JB firmware… after this, you will now see that your RAM has increased to 624 MB RAM and you will have better results… hope this helps…, any question pls just ask :)

I get tm logo on startup and a few odd apps but otherwise all is normal and most of the apps can be uninstalled. Feels a lot nicer than before. Web browser is much quicker and ui slicker. Well worth upgrading. Used opodo 3.7 and its very easy. UK version should be out soon anyhow but if you just can’t wait this Portuguese version

      usually Samsung Mobile send the Update to GSM Provider, they will try it and if eveything ok, the Samsung will but it on thier Server for Downloading, this which i understood from this Page, so even if the Release comes , we do not know how long it could be to wait until it will be on Server of Samsung for Update.

      even Galaxy S II came in many Countries since long time but T-Mobile Germany and Austria did not get this Update, but onther Provider in Austria get it already like A1

    Alguma previsão para o i8160l, já está passando da hora, faz mais de um mês que saiu a atualização para o i8160 e nada para nós latinos, a Samsung só tem clientes na Europa e na Azia?

    Update for Indonesia is out. Check KIES out, fellow Indonesians.
    Done installing. All good. Been briefly checking all the swiping and app opening for 5mins, no complain so far. Will update if there is any drawbacks from this upgrade, which I highly doubt.
