AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket gets the Jelly Bean treatment

AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket gets the Jelly Bean treatment
The happy hour for the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket has come, as AT&T is now rolling out an update to Android 4.1.2. Jelly Bean for it. The cool thing is that this update will not only bring a new version of Android along with its features, but will also bring a number of Samsung-made goodies, as well as some new services by AT&T, so there's really going to be a lot of new content once the handset finishes updating.

The Jelly Bean features do include some very useful thins like Project Butter, for example, which is going to make the device noticeably more responsive. Samsung, on the other hand, is going to include a bunch of things like Smart Stay, Direct Call and Pop Up Play, while AT&T will add its DriveMode and Locker applications.

In case you aren't getting a notification about the update just yet, don't freak out. It will most probably be available through Kies - Samsung's device management software for Windows and Mac. So, if you don't have that yet, better go grab it from Samsung's site, plug your phone in and see if there's a tasty update waiting for you.

Wow, first the Virgin Mobile Galaxy SII got its JB (good stuff for me), now the Skyrocket...I think nearly every single version of the S II has 4.1 now...Samsung knows how to keep all of their consumers satisfied. Even if they don't get the latest and greatest, they still get some love from Sammy.

I just updated my GSII Skyrocket but I don't see Smart Stay anywhere in the settings. I did get Pop Up Play and Direct Call though.
