Jelly Bean 4.1.2 leak available for Galaxy S2
News of Samsung’s best selling smartphone of 2011, the Galaxy S II getting a taste of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean was buzzing alot since the time Samsung officially announced it. The update was supposed to be coming in November and Thanks to our friends at XDA Developers a leak of the Jelly Bean firmware has slipped out. The pre-release firmware version I9100XXLSJ is basically in test mode by Samsung at the moment, but looks pretty stable. This also means that the final build is very close to its finish and will soon be rolling out in a week or two.
