Sprint began rolling out its Jelly Bean 4.1.2 update to users yesterday and they can upgrade either by the Simple Upgrade Tool or Kies.

Alltell said that the the Galaxy S II will be receiving version 4.1.2. The carrier is sending out to text to users that reads:

FREEALLTELMSG: Get the latest update for your Samsung Galaxy SII. Download OS Jelly Bean version 4.1.2 from your computer. Visit

Once you visit the link it will tell you that you need to use a Windows computer to take advantage of the Simple Upgrade Tool.
