Default Galaxy S2 gt-i9100G

The idea of this thread is to provide a comparison between the gt-i9100 G and the gt-i9100. A full comparison can be found in the link below
Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100 vs. GT-I9100G Ultimate Comparison Guide. All You Need to Know! | 10Division.com

Even though the two models basically have the same features, the difference in hardware means that firmware and kernels from one model WILL NOT work on the other.

I know that many of you will have already known this but there will be others who didn't. So I am trying to provide a place where questions can be asked about updating firmware and kernels on the G variant.

I'm hoping by keeping questions about flashing the two different models separate will save confusion and avoid people bricking their phone by flashing the wrong things.

I have got one peculiar issue with this I9100G S2 (OS-2.3.6) phone..The headset button of the earphone does not respond to a QUICK short single click to answer a call or pause a song while playing. The call answer or song pause though works fine on this I9100G S2 when i do a long click and release of button but does not repond to a short click and release.
To test it further i used the same earphone on a I9100 S2(OS-2.3.6)..it works as expected for short click & release..I tested on few other I9100G S2 phones running on OS 2.3.6 and the issue persists.

I even took this to a authorised service center of Samsung and confirmed the issue is with the new I9100G phones.

I would appreciate any help to resolve this small issue as the short click and release for the button is required so that i can use it for music players on my phone to jump over to next songs..with long click this would not be possible.

My gs2 is GT-i9100G
Baseband - I9100GDZKJ2
Kernel - 2.6.35.7

Kies says this is the latest firmware. Is it true?
Is it only possible for me to update the firmware for my Baseband version?

Kies updates are regional and carrier specific. So if kies says that there aren't any updates then you are on the latest official firmware available for your phone.

I have a problem on my S2, I'm using camera after awhile it hang. I turn it off. when I reboot it, the camera it wasn't work and a message appear "camera failed". I couldn't use it anymore. So I put it on my pocket, then I feel hot, it's my phone screen getting hot and the battery easily draining so fast. I take out my battery and let it cool. Then put it back and turn it on. the camera become ok. What may be the cause of it? What should i do? Can someone know how?

Dude even i m facing the same problem, samsung customer care agreed that S2 G series has lot of problems and the production of the same has been stopped.They replaced me with the new handset and unfortunately they have replaced the same G version and now as the problem still persists i demanded for replacement again, they have denied it and now i am fighting in consumer forum.

Thanks

i too have experienced those problems. the phone heats up quite fast, especially when i play games for about 20 mins non-stop. i also had the camera failed problem once. the phone also automatically switched off while playing, two times now. and i couldn't boot it up until i removed and re-inserted the battery, and its been just over two weeks since i got it. should i be concerned?

PLZ HELP!
I had the official 4.0.3 by samsung before. Then my friend installed ROM manager and OPERA, witch looked like ICS for Nexus.
Now I wanted to install the XXLP2 firmware and so I did it with odin.
I downloaded this ICS to try it out but when I get in to my recovery mode I dont have the “Mounts and storage” or “Install zip from sdcard.” like I used to, so I cant install this ICS.
I REALLY NEED HELP <3333333

Not sure by what you mean phones never come up. Does the phone even turn on?

My suggestion is to send it in and get it looked at by Samsung service since its probably still under warranty.

If you can turn on the phone, try pressing Power+Home+Volume Up.
That will bring you to a screen for options like factory reset, wipe cache, and I think firmware recovery. If you try those, it might work.

Cheers

At present ICS is only available for the Samsung Galaxy SII, GT-i9100, GT-i9100M, GT-i9100P, so i'm sorry to tell you that it is not available for your model yet.

Officially.

Download latest Samsung Kies on your PC. Connect the phone to the PC via the USB. Kies will tell if your phone is due for an upgrade. If it does, it will tell you to backup, make sure the battery is charged... etc, then perform the upgrade based on screen instruction.


Unofficial.
If Kies says firmware is the latest, then you are officially not due an upgrade. But you have unofficial option. Upgrade via ODIN. Try the official method first.

Cheers

Welcome to the forum digimon and thanks for joining.

If those apps were installed you have successfully rooted your phone.

The yellow triangle means you are rooted. You should now have cwm recovery which will allow you to flash different roms and kernels if you wish. Apps which require root access should also now work.

Some kernels don't work with all the features of the cwm app and will give that error message. Cwm recovery will work fine though so use the app (or volume up, home and power) to boot into recovery mode. You can then flash roms or kernels from there.

It might be worth rerooting with a different kernel. There are a few alternatives here

It sounds like you previously told superuser to deny access to the cwm app. So open superuser and remove cwm from the deny list then open cwm again and when prompted press allow/grant.

The first thing I'd try would be to wipe dalvik cache. To do this turn your phone off then boot into recovery mode with volume up, power and home, then find dalvik in the advanced menu and wipe. Then reboot your phone with the option in the main menu of recovery and hopefully the problem should be sorted. If not try fixing permissions which can also be found in the advanced menu of recovery mode.

It appears that the kernel isn't compatible with the cwm app. You will still be able to flash roms and kernels, you will just have to boot into recovery mode and flash them via install zip from sd card.

Honestly I'm a bit stumped on what the problem is. I'd probably cut my losseswith the lucifr kernel and give one of the others a try from here

Default Kies tells me there is latest firmware for my galaxy s II

I am scared to comply with the dialog box that is coming up from Kies when I connect my Samsung Galaxy S II to my laptop. the dialog box is headed

Firmware upgrade

A new firmware version is available. Upgrade may improve the performance of 'GALAXY S II (GT-19100G)'. Do you want to upgrade?

Current firmware version: PDA:LC1/PHONE:KL4/CS:LA2 (AFR)
Latest firmware version: PDA:LPDY/PHONE:LPV/CSC:LP (AFR)


Are there no dangers of slowing down my lovely S II? I have read of many people complain about phones slowing down after upgrading them. I wanted to keep mine as original as it was designed. However, I am conscience of viruses and other things that I need to protect my phone against. One of the ways to use to protect my machine I suspect it this firmware, if I am right.

Someone help me! Are there any advantages of upgrading according to this warning or instruction?
