Android 4.1.2 firmware leaks for the Galaxy S II, aimed at the impatient (video)
Those of you with a Samsung Galaxy S II will rejoice at the news that the Android 4.1.2 update for their handset is knocking at the door. The firmware appeared for installation from the not-so-official XDA-Dev threads, and sports numerous enhancements besides Jelly Bean.

Bear in mind that this is based on a test Samsung I9100XXLSJ firmware, but is seemingly stable, and not far from the final version that Samsung will be rolling out soon..

Besides Project Butter, Google Now and the other JB goodies, you get the new TouchWiz with Direct Call, AllShare Play, notification bar enhancements, S-Cloud, Pop Up Play and so on. No word on whether the multi-window mode that will be present on the Note II and Galaxy S III with Android 4.1.2 is here, or if it will ever make it to the smaller screen on the Galaxy S II officially. Hit the source link for the installation instructions, if you can't wait for the official update.
