I've been running JB on the majority of my devices for weeks and other than the occasional hiccup on my 1st gen Note, everything is stable, hell the improvements to my Nexus (GSM) was so nice I stopped using my SIII for awhile and went back to carrying it.
The mention that the SII will also get an "official" JB update is great and all, but by the time the carriers get through "testing" it here in the states the next version will be out for sure.
So why wait?
