Jelly Bean Hitting Another Galaxy S II Variant, This Time The AT&T Skyrocket

With two variants of the Galaxy S II having received Jelly Bean (T-Mobile and Sprint models), the update is spreading faster. This time it’s the AT&T Galaxy S II Skyrocket getting the update, the conflicting upgrade to LTE but downgrade in processor from the original Galaxy S II released only months prior. It’s getting updated to 4.1.2 with the new TouchWiz UX from current Galaxy devices. Here’s a full change log:

- Buttery Smooth Performance & Great Stability (Thanks to Project Butter)
- Full User Interface Revamp (Same UI as of the Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II)
- TouchWiz Nature UX
- Samsung’s S Cloud services
- Improved Camera features
- New Lockscreen With Many Customization Options
- New Features like Direct Call, Smart Stay and Pop-up Play
- New Widgets (From Galaxy S III)
- 2 Home screen modes
- New Notification bar With More Notification Toggles
- Google Now

All this will be available as an OTA or through Kies, if you want to make the process a little faster. It’s a great update for a pretty popular device, so if you have a Skyrocket, don’t hesitate to update it!

Also, AT&T, where is the update for the standard Galaxy S II? It’s the closest US model to the international model, with almost no hardware changes. Really, it’s a bit overdue.
