You can get Jelly Bean on Kies. I noticed a dramatic improvement in speed on this thanks too. Project butter. You can multitask and its smoother at first battery was a little worse but it improved. The version is 4.1.2. I love how sprint got this before att

Yeah I got my jelly beab for my e4gt two days ago and it is like a brand new phone. However, I do have at least 3 complaints (bugs): 1.) Taking a screenshot by holding down volume down + power no longer works. Anyone know how to do a screenshot now? 2.) When charging, the red LED indicator no longer glows and 3.) When setting an alarm with the phone on silent, the alarm will not sound. this is very important to me as I nearly overslept for work yesterday! Also, as a less important note, my apps are no longer listed in alphabetical order post update (??)

Screenshots are now taken with volume up+ home button

I used to have that phone and I seem to remember that touchwiz ordered the apps funky. in the app drawer, hit menu and I think there is a settings button where you can select an alphabetical listing

Thanks for the tips guys, but neither one works. Volume up + home doesn't produce a screenshot and in the app drawer, tapping menu doesn't give me an option to list alphabetically. : o (

Its power and home at the same time.

Well it spins. Grrrr I tried my old galaxy s the first one and it didn't spin. I got an oem one of ebay for like 12 bucks!

 

Sounds like another battery busting software update....

 

Happened to me last time. The update killed my battery, although I did call Sprint and forced them to replace it for me at no cost. They break it, they buy it.

Battery bulge problems on galaxy S2's have been recorded for many many months. It's nothing to do with the update. Just get an aftermarket one like Anker or go to Sprint and they'll replace it question free.

This is a new battery I factory reset it have two apps on it. They are not running android is killing the battery. I love the interface of jellybean but it reduced my battery life by 20 percent

After waiting a few weeks to make sure widespread fail wasnt reported, I took the plunge and updated today. Ill report if I have any issues. The upgrade went smoothly, all my apps, text messages and pictures remain. Only issue was simply having to set up my home screens again, and the phone is bugging me with useless tips. Aside from that, so far so good.

So the update completely screwed up my phone. Hard freezes every two days (requiring a battery pull).

 

Finally backed everything up and did a factory reset. Lets see if it works this time.

 

I had the buzzing with the camera, multiple reboots after a fresh power up, random multiple reboots WITHOUT powering up, freezes and general wonky behavior. I did a factory reset and it cleared all that up. Hopefully, it'll do the same for you.

I also had resets to go along with the constant freezing.

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term. — — — — — A permit was issued for a Sprint conversion at 150 Prospect Park West, finally filling in what is T-Mobile's largest coverage gap in Park Slope. Verizon is collocated on that building and AT&T has placed small cells along Prospect Park West to fill in coverage there while T-Mobile struggled using two sites, one at Grand Army Plaza at the far north and another at Bartel Pritchard Square to the far south.  
    • Yep, you can see the site was taken down between Aug 2022 and Apr 2023.
