The official upgrade for the Galaxy S2 tops off at 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. You might want to contact your cell carrier directly and see if a 4.3 update is in the works. In the meantime, you can still get an unofficial 4.3 custom ROM for your phone by installing the CyanogenMod version. You can find the download and install details here:

I want to update my phone S2 4.1 to 4.3

You just have to remember that when you root your S2, it will make you lose warranty if you still have it.

Also, before you can start, you have to make sure that you have installed all of the updates. And most importantly, you need to backup your files as rooting will lead to loss of data.

Before you start, make sure you have the following installed:

  • ODIN downloader
  • XWKDD Kernel
  • SuperOneclick
  • Samsung Kies

Once these are installed, you have to make sure that you have debugging enabled on your phone. Turn off your phone and then restart to go to download mode. Launch the ODIN software in your computer. Establish connection between your device and computer via a USB cable. Enable "auto reboot" and "f reset time" in ODIN. Select the PDA button and then the XWKDD_insecure.tar file. You do not need to bother to change any of the settings as the default settings are OK. Click the start button and all the files will be installed. It will also automatically reboot afterwards. After that, open SuperOneclick and select the "root" tab. You have to restart and that's it.
