The Android 4.1.2, JellyBean update is coming to the Samsung Galaxy Ace smartphone in the near future.
SamMobile reports that the software will be pre-installed and shipped in new versions of the device that have already arrived in the Ukraine. The site also has a ROM to install on the Galaxy Ace to run JellyBean. Before installing this ROM, Galaxy Ace owners should back up their systems.
The JellyBean rollouts have been happening more frequently over the past few months as the percentage of devices running the software has increased significantly.
The Nexus 4 Android 4.2.2, JellyBean update is now available. However, it comes at a small price: once the software update is downloaded, the phone's baseband software will be altered a bit, completely disabling the partial unofficial LTE connectivity.
Most Nexus owners will not notice the change as they haven't tweaked the device to access LTE.
Android 4.2.2, JellyBean brings some minor fixes and stability enhancements to the device.
Quick settings has been enhanced to allow for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth setting changes and users will hear new sounds when the handset is charged wirelessly along with a different low battery notification.
Users will also not be prompted to allow the connection when they plug their smartphone into their computer for the first time.
The Nexus 4 smartphone reached a milestone this month as Google has sold 1 million units of the handset. This was confirmed by a "Senior Member" of the Android hacking community, who claims the company reached this amount by selling the millionth unit in Turkey.
Google or LG has not confirmed this information, however, the device has been flying out of stock since its initial release three months ago, so this is not that farfetched.
