"Official" Jelly Bean Available for the SGS2 GT-i9100

You can now get a leaked version of Jelly Bean, straight from Samsung, for the SGS2. This firmware includes the "Nature UX" version of TouchWiz, which was previously exclusive to the Note 2 and S3.

It's nice to see that a manufacturer is supporting a device which is now over 18 months old in its original launch countries (lets not even think about how bad the US launch of the S2 was). The fact this leaked firmware appears to be relatively stable suggests that it won't be too long before SIM Free S2s begin seeing an official Jelly Bean update rolling out. I can only wish owners of network branded S2s the best of luck...

Flashed it on mine. Mostly works well, it's all smoother than before.

Good bits:
Jelly Bean stuff :)

The bad bits:

Lockscreen is glitchy.
Vibration patterns don't seem to work and there's a conflict with the Whatsapp vibration settings.
Currently the dlna output from Video Player doesn't seem to be working, i'm not convinced it's broken quite yet though.

Jellybean is super smooth on my Sensation. Does what ICS should have done really. Welcome to the club, or did you already have a jb rom?

We've had JB for months, this is just made by Samsung themselves.
