Official update Jellybean 4.1.2 for Galaxy ACE 2 I8160

Official update jelly bean in Ace 2

Finally, Samsung release jelly bean official update for Galaxy ACE 2 I8160. But only for China, Portugal and Greece. But the only difference is just customization in app (As long as I discovered). I used Jelly Bean package for Portugal region even I am not from there. I hope Samsung will release update for more region.

Please bear in mind that, by accessing the internal system and OS, you will lose the warranty. So, take your won risk.

  3. Open Odin in your computer and connect your device with computer
