There is a Cyanogenmod build of Jelly Bean, if you're inclined to do the root & flash bit.

An official release takes several months. If you want the latest update right now, you will have to root (which has risks!). Otherwise, you must wait until the carrier decides to release the update officially.

Rooting the S2 couldn't have been easier, so if you want JB, I wouldn't wait for AT&T. As for the warranty, I haven't had any problems with AT&T and rooted phones as long as it wasn't the flashing that borked it.

I had a Captivate that stopped any kind of haptic feedback while under warranty. It was rooted and running ICS with the Glitch Kernel. I didn't bother flashing it back to stock when I took it in to the service center. The rep's only comment when he turned on the phone was "cool" and gave me a refurb replacement.

Of course you have to stay within your comfort level, but if you want to go that route I can give you a hand.

I went with Resurrection Remix after rooting and installing CWM. I have no need for an S3 right now. This is incredible.

I rooted mine a few weeks after getting it. I needed to send it in for a warranty claim because the charging port got messed up and It was super simple to flash back to stock and they serviced it with no fuss whatsoever. I've been enjoying JB for a while now. I always look for a great tweaked stock experience

Jellybean is coming to the SII in the UK, hopefully it won't be too long for us.

It was released through Rogers in Canada a couple weeks back... I have heard that the release in the UK started a week ago.

AT&T has released Jelly Bean for the Skyrocket version of the SII, but not the original Exynos 4" screen variant.

As a matter of fact, it now appears as if all variants of the SII, from all carriers, have updated to Jelly Bean, except for the i777 version of the SII from AT&T.

Doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. I'm not an expert in mobile computing hardware & Android software development, but it seems as if the i777 is close enough to all the other variants that it shouldn't be a technology issue.

Is it marketing related?

I would blame AT&T at this point. The i777 could easily be upgraded to JB since it is 99% similar to the i9100/International GS2 variant. The work is basically done. All it takes is a few modifications to make it fully compatible with the i777. Hell, the developers at the XDA forums did it in a day.

I wonder if they are waiting until after the release of the GS4. Maybe they (AT&T) feels that an upgrade to the GS2 would hurt GS4 sales.

Very possible, considering most samsung users rolling off contracts likely have S2s.

To be honest, I would be perfectly content waiting to see what the Nexus line in the Fall, or the S5 the following spring, would look like if I had access to some of the improvements in JB (especially Google Now)

BUT if that's the case, why bother with updating the Skyrockets? They released within months after the i777 release, and are likely also due for an upgrade this year.

Since my personal S2 was rooted and has SuperNexus, I don't feel so anxious to upgrade to the S4. I'm going to wait for the Note 3 or the X phone to decide. On the work front, I'm really enjoying the S3 - unrooted, exactly as is out of the box. Disabled some of the AT&T apps, and enjoying the phone as is. Planning to never upgrade or muck around with any AT&T "improvement" (ie crapware) like the 4.0.4 we had to suffer through for the S2.
