Problem: Galaxy S2 Gt-i9100g - No Firmware Upgrade Available


My dad bought a samsung galaxy s2 from ksa. Below are the details:

Gt-i9100g
Android 2. 3. 4
Baseband version: i9100gdzkh5
Kernel version: 2. 6. 35. 7 root@dell81 #2
Build number: gingerbread. Jpkh8

Thing is, i am in india. When i try to upgrade the firm ware using kies over wifi (have given up on finding a solution to the usb cable problem) it says no firmware upgrade available. I'm a complete newbie at android but have seen a lot of posts saying that update for gingerbread 2. 3. 6 is available for this model.

Can someone help me with understanding if im doing something wrong coz i dont really want to miss out the updates. Also, since my dad created his own samsung account on the phone, i cant seem to remove that and put mine instead. Any help for this would really help me a lot.

Firmware Upgrade Problem With Kies 2

Had my galaxy s for a week now and have decided to upgrade to android 2. 2 now rather than later. But kies 2 would not let me set proxy settings. So i connected to the internet directly using a 3g modem. Now kies 2 says "no sim card inserted. Unable to continue communication. " Getting to the point, finally kies recognizes that it's time for a firmware upgrade and when i tell it to go ahead it crashes on me. I tried running the "gt-i9000.exe" program directly as well as compatibility mode for xp sp2 (i use win 7) but same problem. It's now been hours to do a simple upgrade. What's wrong with kies? Anybody got suggestions? If feels so backwards, should i reconnect my pc from the 1990's?

Firmware Upgrade Phone's Not Compatible - Htc Hero

So i'm using a white hero from europe i believe but it doesn't function as it should (i'm referring to the ones on youtube). For instance, i can't drag an app on homescreen to delete it. The red delete box does not appear at the bottom nor can i drag it to begin with. Also, i can't use the pictures i downloaded to backgrounds folder on my sd card to use as wallpaper or lockscreen even when i'm using linda file manager.

And i only had english to choose from at the beginning when setting it up. I went to htc websites from us, uk, and europe for firmware upgrade and my phone's not compatible with any of them. This is my very first smart phone, so if i could get some help, i'd appreciate it very much!

Firmware Update Failed On Samsung Galaxy S2 (international)

Galaxy s2 (uk 3.co.uk), not rooted or anything like that. I checked for updates this morning and for the first time since i got the s2 there was an update available. I set it away updating and didnt pay too much attention to it. I think it did a f/w update first and then downloaded another software update (ice cream sandwich perhaps? I don't know)

It finished installing the second update and then restarted. Ever since the phone just keeps restarting. I get the samsung splash and then the 3.co.uk splash and then another "s" splash and then back to the 3.co.uk splash and then the "s" splash again (*repeat infinitively)

I booted into the android system recovery <3e>
Tried wiping the cache partition + restart
And tried data/factory reset + restart
No change

In recovery the yellow text at the bottom says:

-Coping media files.

Successfully copied media files.

# Manual mode #

- Updating application.

Successfully updated application.

- Appling multi-csc.

Installing multi-csc

Can't access to '/system/csc/h3g/system/'.

Successfully applied multi-csc.

What do i do now please? I'm stumped!

Considering Upgrade To Samsung Galaxy Nexus From Htc Incredible

I have had an htc incredible (adr6300) for about two years now, and i think it's about time for me to jump on to the 4g bandwagon. As is usually the case with anyone even remotely tech savvy, i'm hesitant to actually "pull the trigger" on a new device for fear of picking the wrong one, or missing out on the bigger, better device coming out in the imminent future.

I understand that if i was just to wait for the "next awesome device" to launch, i'd never get a new phone since they're always coming out with new ones. But i'd really like some peace of mind when it comes to picking a 4g android vzw device from the current market. From what i've read, the galaxy nexus looks to be quite a solid phone. I like the idea of ics, as well as the potential for software updates not taking forever-and-a-half as it did with my incredible. And based on friends in my area with 4g devices, the service is available in many of the locations i spend time in.

Would you say that going from an incredible to a gnex is a positive jump? Rooting is important to me, if for nothing more than the ability to appease my short attention span when it comes to software in general. I don't need a physical keyboard - between swype and swiftkey i've become accustomed to touchscreen keyboards with no problem. That said, i have heard the rumors of the htc incredible 4g - though i'm not convinced it's worth waiting for because 1), who knows when it will actually be released, and 2), there's no guarantee that it will be able to be rooted.

Right now i'm considering the galaxy nexus vs the motorola razr maxx. The battery life on the razr maxx is of course awesome, but as long as the gnex is at least equal to what i'm getting on my incredible now, it's fine. I'm rarely in a situation where i am using my phone heavily and have no access to a charger. All in all, i suppose i've already made my mind up for the gnex, but i guess i'm really just looking for people to validate my opinion or give me some first hand experience that might sway me away from the gnex, if necessary.

Is Ota Upgrade Of Android Version Possible In Samsung Galaxy S2?

Samsung Galaxy S - Tried New Firmware Now Phone Won't Start

So i decided to try and upgrade to froyo after i couldn't get the kries reg. Trick to work. I was using [13. 10. 10][cf-root v1. 2] jph jpk jp6 jpm jpa - superuser+busybox+2e, cwm compat! - Xda-developers website to upgrade the kernal? To enable "2e" recovery, apparently what i needed to do to be able to do the firmware upgrade listed on [rom] [froyo] voodoo doctor edition v2. 0 | universal lagfix | cwm recovery - xda-developers.

So anyway i obvioiusly missed a big chunk of information on the basics, and basically i put the phone in download mode "down volume, home, power" then i opened odin and chose the . Tar file i downloaded from the first link, and hit start. After this the phone just sits at the galaxy start screen white letters saying "galaxy s gt0i9000 samsung"

It just sits there won't go any further. So obviously i've flashed it with the wrong firmware (kernal). I can still go into download mode, so i'm guessing there is a way to fix this i'm just not sure how >. <. I've gone into reset mode and hit reset to factory but that obviously doesn't help as it resets it to the last flashed firmware which was bad.

The phone was brought from smartphones, htc, sony ericsson, blackberry, nokia, brodit, hp ipaq, palm - clove technology the details i have from the phone in kries regeditnd the phone's download mode to restore it so i can at least turn it on?

Ics Upgrade On Unlocked Orange France Samsung Galaxy S2

I think i've worked out that rooting is not what i am after, and i think i have determined that my phone is unlocked but not unbranded, but i'm still short of understanding what i need to do to upgrade my gs2 to ics 4. 0.

1. Unlocked: i have an orange france gt-i9100, for which i purchased a plan. After three months i was allowed, via a tool on their website, to unlock it so that i can put my (non-french) sim in it. This works fine.

2. Unbranded: the phone came with a bunch of orange. Fr applications and widgets on it, which i would generally prefer not to have and just have native android (or samsung's own additions) if possible.

I'm not sure in this instance, where i should expect to get an upgrade from - samsung, orange, or? I have downloaded and installed kies with the idea that this might identify availability of an upgrade for me. It has found an available update.

About phone:
Gt-i9100
Android 2. 3. 3
Baseband i9100bvkg2
Kernel 2. 6. 35. 7-i9100bvkg2-cltest_i9100bvkg2 root@dell127#2
Build number gingerbread. Bvkg2
Finally, using check for updates on the about phone menu says none are available.

Cannot Disable " Data Background Services " After Upgrade To Ics - Samsung Galaxy S2

Since upgrading to ics (ice cream sandwich) with my galaxy s2, one of the changes is you can no longer disable "data background services". When i bought my phone a couple of months ago i was told in the o2 shop to disable data background services to enhance the battery life. I did this and the battery lasted really well as i only enabled the service when i needed to. This facility has now gone and i am finding my battery life really quite poor.

I don't use the mobile network for internet as have wifi at home and work so my phone is connected to that. I notice it must be doing things in the background as i get alerts for facebook, twitter etc so i presume it is working hard in the background and that is what using the battery. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how i can improve the battery life. It is really annoying that this has gone with the upgrade as it certainly made a big difference.

Recovery Firmware

Just bought the htc magic (32b vodfone version) and absolutely love the thing to bits. I successfully installed cyanogen mod 4. 2. 13, and 'permanently' (as worded by the tutorial i followed) installed the recovery firmware. I was just wondering, now that i have replaced the original recovery thing with the modded one and backed up my current firmware, can i now install any custom rom on my device with no worry of bricking it?

I just assumed that so long as the recovery thing isn't modified i could always boot to it if the custom rom doesn't boot, is this true?. My other question was, will all my apps and settings be backed up with the backup i made in recovery, or does it just back up the firmware?.

Apad Firmware 2.1 Or 1.6 ?

I recently bought a apad from ebay and now i am getting a little worried that the seller has put false information about this item. First off he says its andriod os 2. 1 its posted everywhere that its 2. 1 so i know that previous versions cant use the android market. After reading everything on the listing i notice he says its android os 2. 1 firmware 1. 6 ? So im really worried he just said it was 2. 1 and its really 1. 6 ? Is it possible to be on os 2. 1 with a firmware of 1. 6? Or is this just ridiculous?

I Want To Upgrade To A Smartphone

Alright so i want to upgrade to a smartphone, i have just a talk and text only phone (intensity). I am looking at the droid x, or the t-bolt. However the thing is i can't upgrade until november of this year. I called customer service and they told me to buzz off 2 times so far. How do i get them to hook me up without being a jerk, threatening to leave, and screaming at managers? I will be spending more money obviously, getting the phone, and adding a data-plan. Any thoughts? Has anybody been through this?

Firmware Update Problem

Last night i went ahead and took the plunge . Updated the firmware on my archos 70 internet tablet 250gb (2. 1. 3 - android 2. 2. 1).

My tablet still worked after the update. Slower than before though.

This morning i found out that i can't get online

None of my four radio apps work (they all worked fine before).

Bible. Is no longer works.

All three of my browsers no longer work.

Firmware update doesn't work (can't connect to the internet).

Wi-fi shows that my archos is connected to my internet service. My son and i are both online with our computers, so there is nothing wrong with our internet connection.

Looks like i have no choice now, but to reformat the archos and start all over again (for the 4th time) . That will be very time consuming, as i will have to download all of my many apps all over again, and then reload all of my files all over again .
