    wow and thanks for that info. I will eagerly await this new release, hopefully sooner than later. My phone is a piece of crap at the moment. Doesn't do what it used to do. If anyone gets any new info as to when exactly they're going to release this, please let us know.

    Gawd, am I glad I'm still running Gingerbread. My SII (and my wife's) are as good as the day we got them -- still fast, responsive, and everything works.

    It wasn't broke, I didn't "fix" it.

    We'll see how Jelly Bean is.

    Same here - 2.3.4 and no interest in moving up until it's solid.

    I do have JB on a Nexus 7 - good experience so far. But I expect Samsung/AT&T to goof it up somehow with their customization.

    Wish I could go back to 2.3.4. Do you think ATT will even release 4.1.1 on the sgs2? I know its coming for the international version for sure.

    Many people having problems with 4.0.3 are experiencing conflicts with incompatible stuff remaining from Gingerbread. Before giving up on it you should try the following:

    I already tried CM10 [Jellybean]. Was pretty good actually but wasn't in the mood to set it all up so restored my AOKP Rom.

    I'm so glad I rooted. GB was very good overall, but the whole wifi/battery life issue really got to me. ICS 4.0.3 is just junk. Was considerably slower also.

    Rooted and tried ICS Serindiptiy 9.4 and a huge speed boost. Problem was my Bluetooth to car the contacts weren't coming over.

    Last night installed AOKP JB 8/28 and everything seems to be working fine. Super fast too. I had my wifi turned off and over 8hrs last night the battery only drained 7%. This is the way the phone should run.

    Wifi battery drain has been a major annoyance since day 1. Mine was on GB stock, GB UnNamed and is now on ICS SHOstock2, but this issue has never been fixed. I have no complaints about battery life once it's off of it.

    Has anyone heard any updates to this? I'm wondering if anyone knows a better time frame as to when the new jelly bean upgrade will take place?
    Thanks
