Jelly Bean Leak for the International Galaxy S II

Well, it’s been a long time coming. But after a whole load of nay-saying, conjecture, and incessant optimism, Samsung Galaxy S II owners can finally grab hold of a leaked Samsung test build of Android 4.1.

Although Jelly Bean has been available for the Galaxy S II for some time now, there’s been no sign of a version from Samsung. But thanks to XDA Forum Member izap, build XXLSJ based on Android 4.1.2 is now available to download. The build features the latest version of TouchWiz known as Nature UX, which will give your Galaxy S II something of an S III look and feel. And to quote one user – “It’s freaking smoooooooooooth…”

So far the general feedback seems to be quite positive, and it looks like the i9100 is handling the transition to an official version of Jellybean quite well. You’ll need to be familiar with Odin to flash this latest build, as there’s currently no flashable .zip available. If you’re not familiar with Odin, I’d strongly suggest you read up first to save yourself from running into trouble further down the line.

If you want to take this build for a spin, check out the original forum thread for the details and those all important download links.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
