Did this video help you?

Ripley Hamster: u made ppl think u were going to show them how to update their straight talk s2 phone but instead u rambled on about the stupid features for att wtf

Jason Etcheson: download link is broke

doll.20: so i have a straight talk samsung galaxy s2 sgh-s959g how can i update this phone

danny42068: So if I get the tracphone one is everything unlimeted thats dumb 2 or 4 gbs of data

Bryce Spangler: can this be reversed?

Jamal Radl: If i got the galaxy s2 through straight talk (not BYOP). Can i take the sim out and put it into an unlocked phone???

Olivia Simmons: i have this phone on boost mobile.. when will it get the update for jelly bean

ASVPRUSSELL: How did you get thus update?

Fernando Encarnación: hello the link to this rom not completely discharge to see if you could give me another link to download this room if you can thanks

Eric X: its already out. download it through samsung

Carrie White: I have this one i like it

Daniel Wilson: IF you want custom ROMs research first... the i777 (at&t) and the tmobile and international versions have plenty of ROMs out for them, ST version, not so much. It seems to be more locked down so I would avoid it... I am happy with my SGH-i777 Galaxy s2 on ST (except for SoD on i777 version) so maybe you should consider tmobile? also jb may fix the sleeping problem

KidMizzle: I bought my phone on ebay for basically that amount LOL But that was over a year ago, so you definitely should be able to find the phone in the low 300 to high 200 range

Stevan Rodic: ICS update also had battery % in it. no need for downloading aditional apps...

Absyy: Everytime i scroll on the home page a man says " page 1/5 etc " how do i turn this off

Xtreme Application Suite: Please put the link of the rom..

xxdjcharlierockxx: i like the phone but not my version(2.3.6) i bought mine at walmart (trac phone) picture are greatthis is my first smartphone but i want jellybean also...great phone Olivia Simmons but i think im going with google 4...though i might go back to my nexus 7 with hspa+

BrownSuGar Babi: what about the tracfone Samsung galaxy s2 version for straight talk that you buy from walmart.com an how do you upgrade your phone to jellybean if its possible with that phone that is

KidMizzle: I haven't seen any info recently about when the update will officially be released, I think Sansung's focusing on the S3 updates 1st so I'm assuming early 2013

KidMizzle: Yup

KidMizzle: You can either root the phone and flash jelly bean on yourself or wait for the official update, but honestly I didn't right now if you can get your hands on a Nexus 4 and bring that to ST you're much better off!

Skyfox2000: @KidMizzle i have an Galaxy S on StarightTalk i will i get an offlical update on my Galay S

Fernando Encarnación: no descarga :(

phonegirl07: Would all the features work if purchase the AT&T branded Galaxy S2 and use the straightalk sim?

KidMizzle: Yeah, Sara's right, I brought this via eBay and did the whole sim thing with Straight Talk

SaraST8: Hi Mendoza1495, this is Sara from Straight Talk Wireless. The phone is not from Straight Talk. We have this Bring Your Own Phone (BYOP) program that lets you bring an AT&T or T-Mobile compatible GSM phone, or an unlocked GSM phone. You must be able to change the APN settings for the internet to work. If you have any other question, send us an email at TF.CorpResolutionTeam@tracfone.com.

MattNT10: Hi athends, this is Matt from NET10 Wireless. Thank you for choosing our service. Our apologies for any inconvenience this has caused you. We can review your account as to why you are having issues in sending picture messages and no service to your phone. Just send us an email at NT.CorpResolutionTeam@net10.com with your name, phone number or serial number. Thanks!

Kevin Bisson: i want to get this phone on straight talk, i know the phone comes with android 2.3 once i get the phone how do i update it so i get jelly bean??

KidMizzle: Yup, all the features work the exact same

Felipe Espinoza: did you buy the sim card for it? and how much was your entire total? I bought mine off of walmart (tracfone) from ST version. I bought it online. with taxes and all that stuff it came out to a total of $384!!! I know I can find it cheaper. I'm gonna return it and get it somewhere else.

anthony delsite: Can you do the s-beam or no with the update? Im determin to buy this or the iphone 5 for straight talk

KidMizzle: I'm not sure, Samsung has been super slow with the roll out of jelly bean to the major carriers so I'm not sure when it'll get to the Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile versions

SuperMito21: Hey, I REALLY need to know if it supports rSAP, remote sim acess profile??? Thank you!

byeperry: can u make new vid about camera app?

KidMizzle: Sure thing, I'll definitely keep that in mind and will try to knock one out in the future

Felipe Espinoza: Lol thanks for the heads up. So you had to buy a sim card right? since it was from at&t

doll.20: how do i update my phone to that? maybe it was said somewhere in the vid but i missed it

KidMizzle: I flashed it onto my phone from a link that came from XDA

KidMizzle: True, there were a couple slight mods to the firmware, but for the most part it is an official port of Jelly bean

Skyfox2000: @kidmizzle but they got to update it because its there phone when dose samsung update thier phones

KidMizzle: Sorry Skylar, I haven't seen any info regarding an official update to Jelly Bean on the Galaxy S

KidMizzle: I'm not going to be able to help with Google Music unfortunately because I don't use it, but regarding the shortcuts on the lock screen in the settings list you should see an option for lock screen and once you click on that there's a shortcut button that you can press that allows you to add whatever apps you want

KidMizzle: I've actually have never had that happen to me, that's a weird one

sai paladugu: What case are you using on your s2?

KidMizzle: With the update I had, I could not do S Beam

SaraST8: Hi Jah, this is Sara from Straight Talk. Please be informed that for you to avail the Straight Talk Bring Your Own Phone program, make sure that your phone is an unlocked GSM phone. For further inquiries, please do not hesitate to send us an email at TF.CorpResolutionTeam@tracfone.com. Thank you.

jah stinson: ok i have the tmobile galaxy s2 with jelly bean can i get straight talk on my phone?

KidMizzle: It's a slim fit Body Glove case that I brought from Wal Mart

Felipe Espinoza: @KidMizzle hey man! at what price did you get your phone for at ebay?

KidMizzle: I just popped it up

Genta: I have a blue yeti that I absolutely love (its for music) but I wish I had the little screen that this 1 has for the variables setting. I have to agree that the sound pick up that the mic you showed would annoy the hell out me especially in a quiet room.
David Nguyen: Hey I just ordered myself a scuf yesterday, is it worth the purchase?
Mister Tee: It is about time someone addressed the buffering issue one has when using a string of true bypass pedals.
presentsolutions: Note: it is much easier to get the Honda tool now than when I did this a couple years ago. Did timing belt on Odyssey and got tool for free from O'Reilly's. There are lots of videos on using that tool. I found using that tool, not using an extension on the ratchet was the best way since the extension introduces extra twisting under pressure. Also cheap extensions can snap. Also, I needed to use a half inch drive socket on the pulley bolt, a reducer from 1/2 to 3/8 will snap in two. I got a 1/2" drive ratchet wedged on the frame to hold the tool, then got the breaker bar straight on the socket on the pulley bolt, then sat on the ground in front of the car and put my foot on the bar, held on and pushed like crazy (make sure car is well supported so it doesn't fall in your lap.). I'm leaving this video up because I think it illustrates ways to try to solve problems, sort of think outside the box idea, and I liked McGyver... I don't think the chain could hurt the pulley since the chain I used was way softer than the steel in the pulley. Don't think tape would protect the surface, would just tear up. That pulley is very hard material. Been driving that car for two years now and no belt problems yet so must not of hurt the grooves too bad. Also am amazed that over 100,000 people watched this! Are there that may shade tree mechanics left???
