have updated my Samsung galaxy s2 phone firmware (operating system) to Android
4.1.2 Jelly Bean. This is really cool, after upgrade, I see my phone performance
(speed) has increased.
As part of the
upgrade, it will add new features/applications and delete some of the
Polaris office, Photo Editor and vide o maker applications are deleted and
these will be available to download manually from Samsung Apps.
(Gtalk upgraded version), Group Cast, Play Magazines are some of the apps will
be added as part of the upgrade.
In this blog post, I would like to explain
steps to perform Android update.
Samsung Galaxy S2, go to navigate to Settings –About device
click on “Software Update” and then click on “Update”.
will see following screen. Accept the screen and it will update the firmware on
your Android smart phone.

tries with the same process.
