Yup, the Skyrocket version of the Samsung Galaxy S II over on AT&T is getting updated today. Which is some pretty good news considering Samsung’s updates almost every other device capable as of late. Not only that, but the update is for their latest 4.1.2 Jelly Bean flavor full of all sorts of goodies. That Skyrocket is about to get a heck of a lot better.

As usual lately with Samsung, the update is available using Samsung Kies PC software or will also be arriving in an over the air update. It’s pretty big though so we’d recommend you update using WiFi to save those data limits you might have over on AT&T.

The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for the Skyrocket brings Google Now voice search, expandable notifications, better battery life and more as expected from Jelly Bean. You’ll also get all those notification toggles, widgets, and the brand new Nature UX user interface from the Galaxy S III. Get ready to love those new notifications and that brand new unlock screen. Let us know how the update goes in the comments below. Enjoy!
