Hello and welcome to Android Forums Fath88!

Your CSC code, I9100GOLBLP6, shows that, as per post #2, you are already on ICS, Android 4.0.3, version LP6.

EDIT

Between me replying to you and now... there has been a further update released for OLB. See next post.

Further updates for the following CSC codes...

Tks for all info. Though I must say I'm more confused than before I started, haha.

In Australia.

PDA : XWKH1
PHONE: XXKG5
CSC: XEUKH1

Kernel Version: XWKH1
Android 2.3.4

As I understand my phone is a generic UK phone and ICS should be out.
I have never rooted my phone.
Updating via Kies doesn't work thus trying to flash via Odin using method 1.

Over on the "official i9100 page" at XDA there are millions of firmwares avail yet no one matches KH1. The same case happens on sammobile.com

The only matching KG5 (which should be matching since it might affect carrier compatibility?) only has a poland or japanese version.

I'm genuinely confused on which firmware should I DL for ICS. Or even how to select which one to DL.

Cheers!

Hello and welcome to Android Forums arman1201!

You are running generic, unbranded, UK, Gingerbread, (KH1), firmware, (XEU), on your phone in Australia.

The latest ICS version for that is here. This is XWLP7 and was released in April. This will not void your warranty if you flash it via Odin.

As you are in Australia there are a number of operator branded firmwares for Vodafone and Telstra for their, "T", variant phones. These T, variants have different modem software as the aforementioned operators require it for compatibility to their networks. So, you could, if you were with one of these operators, flash their firmware to your phone. However, as per post #1, this will void your warranty.

Firmwares for these operators can be downloaded as follows... VODAFONE... TELSTRA.

The choice is yours. It migh be a good idea to grab a coffee, or a beer, and start some reading.

Up until 48 hours ago, this was the releases for ICS to-date.

However, that has all changed with the release of a further 21 updates to ICS on the GT-i9100 model. No changes for the G, M, P or T I'm afraid.

To check if your phone is eligible for an update, just connect it to Kies or check out the SamMobile link in post #1 if you upgraded using Odin.

Hello and welcome to Android Forums nlpnlp!

I think you mean that your CSC code is.. I9100OJPKJI which was released in January.

It would seem, that as you cannot update via Kies, (see post #1 for why this may be), you can either take your phone to a Samsung Service Point and ask them to upgrade it for you to ICS or you can flash the OJP firmware yourself, using Odin, as described in post #1.

I am going for the I9100JPLPC_I9100OJPLP9_OJP, as mentioned by ICS Thread owner ironass on the following post

ICS... CSC are you eligible for an update?

Now my query are as follows

When I unrar the I9100JPLPC_I9100OJPLP9_OJP.rar , I found 4 files as follows

1) GT-I9100-MULTI-CSC-OJPLP9.tar.md5
2) I9100_APBOOT_I9100JPLPC_CL537255_REV02_user_low_sh ip.tar
3) I9100_CODE_I9100JPLPC_CL537255_REV02_user_low_ship .tar.md5
4) MODEM_I9100XXLPW_REV_02_CL1131641.tar.md5

Which file from above I have to use in ODIN to flash my SGS2 with 4.0.3?

If you ere using the instructions and video in post #1 and downloaded your firmware from SamMobile, it comes as a 'zip file which needs to be extracted once. This will give you a .tar .zip flle which is placed in PDA. This one .tar .zip file contains all the files you need. I'm guessing that you have further extracted that .tar .zip file.

Actually I got from another source and it includes 4 files, as pointed in my snapshot,

I was able to update to 4.0.3 but it was a clean installation, I lost my contacts, gmail emails,sms message, colornote and others.However I got back the gmail emails, sms message (thanks to sms pro+), contacts from gmail and apps from google app.

I missed colornote which I did not backup, I got all apps back.

Now a million dollar question : )

I backed up my SGS2 (2.3.5) via kies just before the upgrade and now I want to restore back it on 4.0.3. Should I expect any issues or duplication or something.


Thanks & Best Regards

Oh well, at least you have a clean install. Not a bad thing. See, here.

Providing that prior to flashing your phone, you had Contacts, Calendar, Play Store, etc; sync'd to Google, you should find that after signing in to your account that these are restored automatically.

As for your backups on Kies, unless you really need anything in particular, I would try and avoid a restore as far as possible using Kies as it will be old, Gingerbread, data/settings.

PDA: I9100XXKI4
CSC: I9100OXAKI4
I see on the XDA Developers FW page that there's a package with "PDA: XWLP8| Modem/phone: XXLPS| CSC: OXALPS". Would this match my phone?

Hello and welcome to Android Forums aboalghool!

Your CSC code is OJV I see. SamMobile have a couple of ICS, Android 4.0.3, firmwares for this code on their site as per the screenshot...

Thanks, I'm getting a message from hotfiles that I've exceeded my download limit for the time being so I'll try later.

But in general though when searching for the right FW on that XDA thread I linked too I should be looking for one that matches my CSC, in this case 'OXA'?

I assume the region code bit, the 'XX', doesn't matter too much as any western European FW is going to have English?

Virtually every firmware comes with English. I try and stick to XX or XW codes usually as codes such as DX are not that good in Europe I've found.

Many phone companies have integrated the standard look of their phone eg: xperia look, htc sense into the ICS design..lockscreen pattern may change..but the basic functionalities remain unchanged

Hello and welcome to Android Forums firebiker!

I believe you CSC code should read, "I9100OJPKJ1".

In which case, see post #307 for your options if you cannot use Kies to update. Flashing an update to your original, out-of-the-box, firmware via Odin will not invalidate your warranty.

However, your vendor, "may" have changed your firmware, prior to your purchase which could explain your inability to update vis Kies. See under, "ICS is available for my code but I cannot update", in post #1.

You are running a multi-nation code covering Russia and the Ukraine. CSC OXE is upgradable to ICS. If you don't want to update to this, then on sammobile there is an update to 2.3.6. You could either flash it yourself or take it to a samsung repair shop and ask them to flash it for you.

You are on a 2.3.4 from South Africa. There is an Update to 4.0.3 available on Sammobile (see #1).

You can flash it yourself using Odin or bring it into a Samsung repair shop.

Hi, I´m new at the forum, I have been reading around but couldnt find the answer I was looking for. This thread has helped a lot but here it goes:
I bought an AT&T phone in the US, with AT&T logo and software on it, but UNLOCKED to be used with any carrier.
Kies tells me my phone is eligible for an update (and it still recognizes it is an AT&T phone, because it says something like PDA: XXX.... ATT)
My question is: If I update my AT&T unlocked phone via Kies, will it remain unlocked?? Or will it be locked to AT&T again?? (Obvioulsy i use another carrier...and woudn´t like that)
Thanks!

Hello and welcome to Android Forums dpeerthy!

ICS for CSC code, OJC, has been out for a couple of months, as per post #2 of this thread.

As to why you may not be able to get it, and what you can do, see post #1.

OXX = MACEDONIA

CHO = CHILE

OJP = UNITED ARAB EMIRAT.

OJP = EGYPT

Further updates to already released ICS, for...

DBT = OPEN GERMANY

PRO = BELGIUM/ LUXEMB.

LUX = LUXEMBOURG

See posts #1 and #2 for more details and to check updates or, alternatively, connect your phone to the Samsung Kies, PC firmware.

This thread is great, i have been following it for some time now waiting for my CSC code to be in the list for an update (now OJP is updated to ICS). I have the following question/issue now though because I didn't see it already answered.

When I check my CSC on the phone by using the *#1234# method I get a CSC of OJP (I9100OJPKF2). But when I connect by my SGS2 to Kies it said that by CSC is XSG [it says CSC:KF2 (XSG)] and I get the typical message that it can't be supported through Kies. I know that XSG is currently not on the ICS list in Post no 2. My real questions are what is my real CSC? And why does the phone say one thing and Kies say another.

I bought my phone from one of those used mobile shops on the UK high street. Could they have done something to cause the mismatch. Is there something I can do in order to fix the issue so I can update to ICS?

Note I also checked the other CSCs that i could change my phone to using *#272*Device IMEI#, and OPJ was not on the list. And none of the other CSCs have been updated to ICS from this list.

It would appear that your phone's CSC code was originally XSG, (United Arab Emirates), and has, at some stage, had the OJP firmware flashed on to it for various reasons outlined in post #1.

It could have been changed by anyone in its chain of ownership. It does mean that you will not be able to update using Kies, see post #1. Even if you changed your firmware back to XSG you would still not be able to update to ICS as it has not been released for that CSC code.

Therefore, you should use Odin and flash the latest OJP firmware to your phone as described under, "My firmware is not eligible for ICS yet but I want it now!", in post #1.

Hello and welcome to Android Forums Zeinynet!

There are a number of reasons that you will receive that message when connecting to Kies. See under, "ICS is available for my code but I cannot update", in post #1.

If you wish to update to ICS for the OJP firmware then you will need to flash it using Odin and the method described in post #1 under the heading, "My firmware is not eligible for ICS yet but I want it now!".

Hi Ironass,

It is indeed Four files inside the zip, I even downloaded directly from SAMfirmware side as well.

Any how thanks for your support, I was having battery drain issue and it seems to me improving a lot with use so it is useable for me as of now.

TIA
