Hello

Does anyone know when is the new Jellybean update is coming out for Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 in UK? Initially they said on April 22nd 2013. But it's still not out.

I have unlocked Ace 2 and I have been waiting for the update for months now.

I have the Ace 2 and no JB official updates have been rolled out so far, no release dates were announced either but it'll probably be out by June.

That firmware available on XDA isn't official, it's a carrier branded firmware for TMN and obviously contains a lot of bloatware, there isn't any JB firmware for the unlocked international Ace 2.

You can flash the unbranded XXME7 Turkish firmware using Odin, I've been using it for a few weeks and the performance is smoother compared to earlier releases. Note that Samsung hasn't yet started a global JB rollout but the regional firmware just works as expected.

The usable RAM got bumped from 550 to 624MB when upgrading from 2.3.6 to 4.1.2.
