Why won't my Galaxy S2 update to Jellybean?

Message 1 of 6 (5,644 Views)

Four of my friends have just upgraded their Samsung Galaxy S2's to Jelly bean (4.1.2).
I cannot seem to get my phone to 'find' this update and download/install it. I am still stuck on ICS (4.0.3) 
As far as I can tell, this update should be available to everyone to download now, but I still cannot do so.
I have had my phone tell me twice of time over the past few weeks that there is an update, only to say there isn't when I try to download it. 

 

What could the problem be? 

Thanks,

There was a problem with the software re-locking some handsets that had been unlocked.

 

The roll out was halted until they can fix the issue.

 

I'm waiting as well to update my wifes GS2 that is still on 2.3.3 =)

Brettm is spot on. We've put a halt to the update for the time being, though we'll definitely keep you updated here once there's more news!

I must have missed that reading through the post, oh well.
Thanks for letting me know!

Here is the latest update the blog;

Update: 09/05/2013 Samsung have addressed the re-locking issue for both 3 and Vodafone handsets and are preparing to submit the fix for testing.
Looks like there has been no word (that I know of) for the past week or so. It seems like the update is fixed, but they haven't started to send it out again yet.
