You can try to flash a new stock ROM via Odin software but you need experience for that because you might end up with a bricked phone if you do not know what your doing .. my advice is to check some tutorials on how to flash with Odin.

I have already updated to 2.3.5 in Sweden via Kies. I don't know anything special in the new version not even video option in gtalk. I think something new will be available in ice-cream version i.e andriod 4.0 in Novemeber.

each mobile phone has a code for the country it comes from. my code is xef, which means it's from france. i already use it with german language. but because of the code, kies doesnt give me the update. if i would have the german code, it would have started to roll out the update. it doesnt matter where you live, it only matters which county-code the phone has.

Daniela
Daniela

yes i know, but thats not what i mean. because i have a galaxy s2 from france, the firmware is'nt offered via kies at the moment. so i can't install it. that's my problem. i don't get any update at the moment. in germany they offer the new update. i live here but my mobile phone isn't german. so i have to wait for the french firmware. and that's why i'm asking, if the french firmware 2.3.4 is available. if yes, it could be possible that kies doesnt offer it to me, because i live in germany. do you know what i mean? thanks for your answer.

Daniela

i know that Germany has the 2.3.4 update since the 26th of september. please correct it in your list. But i have another problem: I live in Germany but i have a Galaxy S2 from France. So i can't get the German firmware. My question is, if anyone knows about an available update to 2.3.4 in france? if its already available via kies, i'll never get it here in germany :-( if it didnt arrive yet, i can keep my hope, that the problem isn't that i live in Germany by having a french galaxy s2.

I Bougth my Galaxy SII in Qatar almost 2 month ago. I'm running 2.3.3 XXKG5. I can see that Gingerbread 2.3.5 is already available and even 2.3.6 for the Nexus S (Which I had before) is out. Untill when do we have to wait to get the official update via kies ? I'm really unhappy with the samsung updating progress, I'm not even able to find a service center that I could contact by email for more details :(

@Magyar: Android OS bug = When I see battery usage of applications, Android OS is always on top with around 70-80% battery consumption. It is usually 1/4 of the total time on battery. So with only very mild use, my mobile survives 16-20 hours at maximum. (I keep my wifi on all the time and 3g data for around 1 hour). It is possible that you don't have it at all or you have not noticed it. FIX: Even after update, the problem is still there. I have tried to fix it with enabling System Power Saving mode in Settings->Power saving. My mobile now lasts for 20+ hours or probably 24 hrs which is acceptable.

what do everyone talking about, OS bug. what is it exactly?

i dont think my question has been answered. I understand if using kies it will not be a custom version of android. but would imagine it wil build for your carrier, probably reading your imei number. i was wondering if ther is a non carrier branded version we can install, as the manufacturer wanted the phone to be before the carriers tweak it. second question is, even if you one and installed it, would kies overwite it next time you update it to the one for the carrier? by the way if the update hasnt fixed the os bug i am a vey unhappy customer..

For me, Android OS bug is still there in the latest update as bad as before.

Hi.. I am in India. Want to know when the update to 2.3.4 will be available. I bought the phone on 16th september 2011 (SGS2). I have android 2.3.3. Another question..Will SGS2 be updated with android 2.4 (Icecream sandwich)?

Mudassar

@Magyar:I think changing IP will not work. And I did not get it because I am in Germany (people in Germany still don't have the update). I got it because it has been released for Nordic countries. By the way.. no video chat in gtalk Android OS is still there but I think not as bad as before. i will update after charging it fully and then see the difference.

Have a question if I use a proxy from a country which have it available could I the upgrade as well?

you need to be rooted to manually flash a stock rom with support for arabic language. without that you cant! Or try contacting Samsung services in your country they might help you out.

Florian Mihu

Alright lets check a few things .. first .. you have KIES software installed is your device recognized by KIES when you plug it into the USB? if so .. Check for new updates and tell me what it says.. if nothing happens than its not available or it could be a problem with your operating system on your PC/laptop/MAC. Happend before to few unlucky people the device is undetecable. Pls provide more details about your problem so that we can figure out whats going on. You can also contact local customer service (carrier) call them or go directly to a local store and ask about an update.

Florian Mihu

it doesnt matter if its a german of a france firmware update.. all you need to do after a successful install, is to change the language from Menu>Settings>Locale and text>your language. if you dont understand the language of the firmware.. "Locale and text" ICON has a letter "A" thats the one you want to click on!

mate it will be available u just gotta wait a bit , Samsung are releasing the updates first in some specific countryies then it will release for others but dont worry it will be there

Florian Mihu
Florian Mihu

You can do that using Odin or Heimdall but our advice is not to if you do not have previous experience into flashing ROM's. Samsung should release sometime soon an update via KIES in Romania, until than check our website from time to time for new firmware availability / upgrade announcements or you can just subscribe to our newsletter!

2.4 will remain for Gingerbrea firmware in the future if AndroidDevs will want to keep it updated until it reaches that number, while ICS will use nr 4.0 and will go on from there with 5.0 probably with Android Jelly Bean as rumored

Scott Popowich

2.3.5 firmware update is available only if flashed through Odin from PC worldwide while the KIES update is still delaying in most of the countries, Nexus S 4G 2.3.6 is also available do a search on our website and you'll have the instructions inside the post on how to update it
