    This is what worked for me. Kies was just not working, and after recent experiences at the local Sprint stores I wasn't about to take it to them. The simple downloader worked fine, the instructions were pretty fool-proof.

    Here are the direct links to the downloads, although I'm not sure why Samsung would bother with different links for the black and white versions. Just click on the Download tab to find the installer.

    Thanks for the link for the white SG2. My parents have the white one and I couldn't update through Kies. I'm thinking the Samsung website must be overloaded with so many people trying to update their phones. I used your link to update their phones and it worked like a charm! Thanks!

    Great news...

    If my wife has FL FL24 rooted, what do I have to do to get JB on her phone, preferably rooted? Or perhaps not rooted.
    thanks

    Well. Not a good night. Attempted to use KIES to perform the upgrade. Ended up talking with Samsung this morning for almost two hours trying to repair the corrupted phone. The upgrade corrupted the OS. End result? I had to contact the insurance co. (Asurion) and pay $100 deductible for a new phone. Can't wait until Thanksgiving.....I'll be up for a new phone....going to get a SGS4 I think.

    So I finally got my JB upgrade done, and I got it done at the store that said they couldn't do it until the 1st of April. I ended up going tback to the store to "politely discuss" with them why they couldn't do it, only to run into a buddy of mine that now works for Sprint. My buddy said the same thing about the 1st, and I told him he was wrong. He gave me access to one of their computers and said "If you can find, we can update it.". I went right to the Samsung website and downloaded the updater. Then we updated my phone. I'm rocking JB now, and so far, I'm liking it. The phone almost feels like new again. Oh, and the purple colored LED for the dying phone is kind of a nice change. I always figured it had the capability to do more than just red or blue, and now I know it does.

    I am so glad they finally released it. It seems to state that it is to large for over the air install, it's only over wire. So download the simple tool DL its easy.

    I've got the GS2 for Boost Mobile, but used the simple updater, and now all the Boost apps turned into Sprint apps. Boost Zone to Sprint Zone, and Boost ID to Sprint ID, etc. I'm wondering if maybe I updated to a Sprint version or something, but I downloaded Kies and it says I have the latest firmware. Anybody know if there's a specific update for Boost?

    You probably did use the sprint version. You can always flash a kernel with a recovery via odin and flash my boost 4.1.2 ROM:

    You just run the .exe file from XDA. I know how you feel - I spent half a day trying to find that ODIN tool pictured and just thought it was me

    Went into a sprint store today to see if they can update jelly bean for me. The lady told me to go the service&repair store but i didnt have time today and she told me that the update was rolling out as an OTA and I should wait for an update message on my phone but from what I've seen the file size is to big to be done via OTA so I have no way of getting the update since kies wont open on my computer I have to wait till I have time to go to the store
    One clicks in ROMs forum will get you going.
