Sprint’s Epic 4G Touch Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Update Available Now
By on March 31st, 2013

Sprint and Samsung have started rolling out the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for their variant of the Galaxy S2 – the Epic 4G Touch. The update will bring with it quite a bunch of new features as seen on the international Galaxy S2, including Smart Stay, Direct Call and more.

The usual Android 4.1 Jelly Bean enhancements are also present including Google Now, Project Butter for buttery-smooth UI, enhanced speech-to-text with offline mode support, and expandable notifications among other things.

Samsung is not rolling out the update via OTA, and Sprint SGS2 owners need to use KIES on a Windows XP or Windows 7 based PC to get the update. The update needs to be manually downloaded from here, and weighs in a whopping 520MB+. Your data will be left untouched, but it is highly recommended that you make a backup before proceeding with the update. While KIES does not officially support Windows 8, the application and the update process works flawlessly on the latest OS from Microsoft.

Hopefully, AT&T and other U.S operators will soon release the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for their variant of the Galaxy S2 as well.
