The Galaxy Ace 2 may not be the flashiest device around, but Samsung’s low-key mid-ranger is still a very popular device in many markets from around the world. It’s good therefore to see the Korean company working to update the Ace 2 to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, and thus bring it in line with superphones like the Note 2 and the Galaxy S3.
For those who can’t stand the wait, the guys at Sam Mobile have got their hands on what appears to be a recent build of the ROM, dated February 17.
Sam Mobile has posted the build on its firmware section, so if you want to give it a spin, the Jelly Bean ROM for your Galaxy Ace 2 is only an Odin flash away. The new Android implementation brings a bevy of tweaks and improvements, Google Now, as well as a pared down version of Samsung’s Nature UX interface.
Note that Sam Mobile has not specified if the leaked build is stable and can be used as a daily driver, so proceed with caution. Instructions are available via the source.
