Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy Stellar was released in September 2012 running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Thankfully though, the carrier and the phone’s maker have since decided to grace it with an update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Still not the latest version there is, but good enough for now, we assume – especially since the Stellar is nothing more than a midranger.
The update was announced by Verizon last week, but has only actually started rolling out hours ago. It comes in at a hefty 403.6 MB, so do this over Wi-Fi, will you?
Needless to say, this is an over-the-air release, meaning that the update will trickle down to all Galaxy Stellar devices in time. It will probably take a few days. If you have a Stellar and it hasn’t notified you about the update yet, dive into Settings > About Phone > System Updates and force it to manually check – who knows, you might just get lucky.
Verizon estimates that it will take you about 30-40 minutes to download and install the update. After applying it, you’ll be running software version JZO54K.I200VRBMA1.
As you’d expect, the update brings you Google Now, expandable notifications, Project Butter, alongside a myriad of bug fixes and random improvements. The full feature list can be found lurking in this PDF, and complete installation instructions are available in this PDF.
