AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update now available
After a bunch of US carrier variants of the Samsung Galaxy S II have already gotten their first (and maybe even last) Jelly Bean bits over the past few weeks, today it’s AT&T’s turn. More specifically, the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket (model number SGH-i727) is now being updated to Android 4.1.2.
Sadly though, the update is only available if you use Kies, Samsung’s desktop software for Windows and Mac. There is no an over-the-air rollout unfortunately, so you’ll have to use this method.
The update brings with it all the niceties of the first iteration of Jelly Bean, including Google Now, Project Butter, expandable and actionable notifications, as well as some things that are specific to this phone model. Browser bar, Drive Mode, AT&T Locker, Mobile Hot Spot, and a Featured Apps widget are now preinstalled. Qik and MSpot are removed. Also, call quality should get a boost.
The full installation instructions, which you should definitely read carefully before attempting to update, are available for you at this webpage. After applying the update, your Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket will be running software version I727UCMC1.
