It is still unclear whether the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 will get the official Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update because of its age and its capacity to run TouchWiz UI. However, owners of the Android smartphone may decide to use CyanogenMod 10.1 firmware to experience Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update.

CyanogenMod 10.2, which runs the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update, provides several new features such as the Google Now, Project Butter, Lock Screen Widgets and Actionable Notifications. Furthermore, as posted on International Business Times, the CM 10.2 uses Trebuchet Launcher as the default user interface with modified Linux kernel.

Below are the changelogs for the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2: (grabbed from IB Times)


  • Bug fix on low volume voice calls
  • Fixed camcorder issue
  • Boot time improved
  • Fixed the 'unable to mute microphone in dialler'
  • Fixed live wallpaper
  • Stability fixes

 

But to install Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update successfully, there are requirements to meet first such as the following:

  • Check the model number of your Samsung Galaxy Ace 2. It should bear GT-I8160 as its model number. Flashing the ROM to other devices can result to undesirable consequences.
  • Create a backup of all the personal information and settings stored on your Samsung Galaxy S2. You can use custom recovery tool such as ClockWorkMod.
  • The battery level should be at least 50% before installing the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update to prevent power interruption during the process.
  • Install the appropriate USB drivers for the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 on your computer.
  • Enable USB Debugging mode on your device.
