Those who have Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 may opt to install Android 4.2.2 Jelly bean update on their smartphone.

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.

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

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