Vodafone confirm Galaxy SII Jellybean Update approved

Vodafone Android

Vodafone have confirmed in writing to Ausdroid a short time ago that the Jellybean update for the Samsung Galaxy SII has been approved for both the Vodafone and Three network devices and is now awaiting a release schedule from Samsung. While this is certainly good news for those of you still rocking the old Galaxy SII, there is no confirmed timeline for the OTA updates to start pushing out as yet.

Are you still rocking a Galaxy SII? Are you eager to get some Jellybean style in your life? Let us know in the comments below.

third world countries have updates way before us, its sickening it took so long and we pay so much for bad service.

I’m going to assume these have the hopeless battery life of the other Samsung ROM’s from Sammobile.

I’ve tried all the 4.1.x stock ROMs and the battery life really does suck compared to ICS!

Probably has to do with the T variant handset (GT-I9100T) and the compatible modems to suit… Optus has already released Jellybean, but they’re using International Spec GT-I9100 handsets.

This will come in handy for people who use a T model handset that already have a custom JB ROM installed on their phone that just have modems suited for the GT-I9100 🙂

Hi Daniel,
Has the update been delayed?

Daniel Tyson

The update for the Telstra SGS II hasn’t been approved as yet. The last update from the Telstra updates team was the 18th of March, I’ve asked Telstra if there was any updates that should be approved now. I`ll update as soon as I hear anything.

I updated my Vodafone S2 myself with a download from Sammobile some time ago. Well worth doing.

Finally. Only took a year. Carriers are horrible. They slow everything down!
