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

There seems to be a lot of confusion surrounding the release of the Ice Cream Sandwich, (ICS), update. So lets see if we can clear a few things up.

Please read posts #1 and #2 carefully and thoroughly as they should answer most of your queries.

Is my model of phone eligible for ICS

This thread is only for the Samsung Galaxy SII, GT-i9100, GT-i9100M, GT-i9100P, GT-i9100T, GT-i9100G models. To check your model no:-

Settings > About phone > Model number


I got my phone from XYZ carrier directly but cannot get the XYZ ICS update

It doesn't matter where you bought your phone or what sim card you are using.

What does matter is the CSC code, (Consumer Software Customisation code). To find your CSC code... go to the dial pad and type in...

*#1234#

You will then get a screen showing 4 lines of information, thus:-

PDA refers to the build version of the firmware

Phone refers to the baseband/modem version

CSC is specific to geographical region and carriers. It contains the software packages specific to that region, carrier branding and also APN settings for data connection, MMS etc for your service provider.

Build Info: The time and date of the build you are running.


The CSC code will show if ICS has been released for your phone's software and will look something like this:-

I9100XYZKD1 or I9100MXYZKDI

The important part to determine your eligibility for ICS are the 3 letters after the number... in this case XYZ, (unless you have an M, T, G or P variants. In which case it is the 3 letters after that).

You can now go to post #2 to see if ICS is available via Kies for your CSC code.

For an explanation of Samsung's Firmware codes, see here:-

SamMobile Firmware Page

and here:-

[REF] Samsung letter codes to check firmware compatibility - xda-developers

Of course, the easiest way to determine your eligibility for ICS, is to connect your phone, via USB, to Kies on your PC and check for an update!

To download the latest version of Kies, Samsung's PC Suite, see here:-

Kies Samsung


You may want to read through this excellent post by DaveSyd, entitled, "What to expect upgrading SGS2 to ICS using Kies":-

TIPS: What to expect upgrading SGS2 to ICS using Kies


Problem connecting to Kies

If you experience a problem connecting to Kies then follow this excellent troubleshooting guide by Hawker, entitled... "Advanced steps to take for Kies connection problems", here:-

Tips n Tricks thread.



I have an ABC carrier sim card... why can't I get ICS?

See above.


ICS is available for my code but I cannot update

Provided that your phone has never been rooted, unlocked, flashed or altered in any way, (see next section), then the best advice is to take it to a Samsung Service Point and ask them to update the firmware for you. Alternatively you can use one of the methods described in the following two sections.

It is also emerging that sometimes vendors have been flashing phones with a different firmware prior to sale in an attempt to sell to a wider market and therefore upgrades via Kies are not possible, see next section.


I have rooted/unlocked my phone. Can I get ICS

You will not be able to receive ICS via Kies, the Samsung PC Suite, if you are rooted or changed your firmware/kernel and may receive the message, "YOUR DEVICE DOES NOT SUPPORT SOFTWARE UPGRADING VIA KIES" . There are also reports that people who have had their phones unlocked or repaired at a Service Point and re-flashed with different firmware are unable to receive updates via Kies. You will need to revert back to your original stock firmware. See here:-

[ROM+Guide]Official i9100 Firmwares KL1/2/3/LA2,4/LB2,LPE/Q/7/2 Download - xda-developers

or for carrier firmware, see here:-

[ROMS]Official i9100 carrier branded firmware download for Odin Flash - xda-developers

You could, of course, use the method below.


My firmware is not eligible for ICS yet but I want it now!

You do not have to wait for ICS to be released for your CSC code. You can install, via PC software called Odin, any of the stock Samsung firmwares shown in post #2.

Stock, official, Samsung Galaxy S2 firmwares can be downloaded from SamMobile Firmware Page, after registering, by entering either "i9100, i900M, i9100T, i9100P", in the, "Search device here", box on the page followed by your CSC code, (i9100***). To see all firmware releases for your model of phone, just omit the CSC code.

For step-by-step instructions on installing ICS via Odin, see here:-

How to install Ice Cream Sandwich on your Samsung Galaxy S2 | Reviews | CNET UK

(*** Ignore the ICS file that they suggest you download and use the official firmware mentioned above)

This is for competent users and will void your warranty, if you have one, by flashing any firmware other than that intended for your original CSC code as well as preventing future updates through Kies or Over The Air, (OTA).



When will ICS be available for my CSC code?

That, I'm afraid is the $64, 000 question!

A release of ICS, version LPQ, was released to generic, (unbranded), handsets in Korea, Poland, Sweden and Hungary on the 13th March. This was followed by the UK release of ICS to branded phones on Three and O2 CSC firmware.

A lot more releases are now being made available through Kies and some CSC codes are already on their third and fourth update of ICS and on Android 4.0.4.


In conclusion

Whilst I can understand, all too well, how frustrating this must be for some of you who want to get ICS on to your phone immediately I would strongly urge patience as with any major firmware release there are hold-ups and glitches, particularly when dealing with so many locations and different carriers. I'm sorry to say that all the moaning, whinging, whining and throwing teddy bears out of cots... won't bring it any quicker. Thinking back to previous Android releases, this is no different I'm afraid!


My thanks go to intratech for some of the clarifications.

If you could post on this thread, your 3 letter CSC code, location and carrier, when you can update your phone with the official Samsung ICS release, via Kies, I will endeavour to update this list for easy reference.

GT-i9100 CSC codes that are eligible for the official update update to ICS via Kies are shown bold type. A P, T, G or M denotes that it is available for those variants as well

Samsung official letter code.

CSC codes starting with "O", can indicate multi CSC codes for more than one country/region, (Open), and will be added to the list as, and when, ICS is available for that code. For example... OXA, OLC, OXX, OJP, etc: Use Google to see which regions are covered by your particular code.

If you have received the official update for ICS, (Ice Cream Sandwich), via Kies, could you please post your CSC, 3 letter number, and your location/carrier and I will endeavour to update post #2 with the codes that are available for ICS.

It seems that people are still not understanding that their firmware upgrade is reliant on their CSC.

As far as I understand, this is Samsung's update of ICS, NOT ICS as seen on the Nexus. They will make things look as similar as possible in order not to confuse consumers who aren't tech savvy.

But then, I may be wrong!

Default problems with kies update

Hi Guys,

I've been trying to update my Galaxy S2 to ICS via Kies but it's not working. I have it on O2, haven't tinkered with it at all since buying it about a year ago. I installed Kies on my Mac but it says that my "device does not support software upgrading via Kies."
My CSC is KG2 (O2U)

Any help with that?

Cheers

Posts #1 and #2 have been updated due to further releases by Samsung for more CSC's.

As you can see from post #2, CSC, O2U is available. Unfortunately, there is a history of Kies and Mac's not playing nicely. If possible you could try the update on a PC. As you say you are running the stock firmware that came with the phone, you could try taking it to a Samsung Service point and ask them to up-date it for you.

The fact that you cannot access your, "Version", info via *#1234# does not affect your ability to receive the ICS update via Kies when it is released for your CSC code. It just means that you do not know what your CSC code is. My guess is that it is a, "Connection problem", that may resolve itself.

Although the, "T", variant is identical to the International version, it has a different modem, designed to work primarily with the Telstra and Vodafone networks and therefore requires a different firmware to accommodate this. There is no date given for ICS on the "T", (or "G"), variant.

I know of some people who have rooted their phones and flashed the standard ICS and then flashed the "T" modem, as they were not willing to wait.

Whilst I've tried to make the list as comprehensive as possible, new CSC's are cropping up. If a CSC is not shown in the list at all it will be added when an ICS update is announced by Samsung and released via Kies.

For instance, I added about 6 new CSC's today as Samsung had listed them as available for ICS.

"O", at the beginning of a CSC, usually indicates a multi-language pack.

My CSC code is I9100XEUKH2

So as this code is not bolded in the list above means the update isnt available yet for me?

BTW my phone was purchased from Three network here in uk.

Hi, same problem. Upgrade via Kies worked fine, then one day it just froze and stopped working, wouldn't boot anymore. Sent my phone back for repair, and received it with a new moterboard (and newer version of firmware). Since then, get the error message in Kies "device does not support software upgrading via Kies."

PDA: I9100XXKI4
PHONE: I9100XXKI4
CSC: I9100OXAKI4
Build info: Tue Sep 27 16:33:36 KST 2011

How can I solve this? And is it eligible for ICS?

Thank you in advance for your help !!

I would update it today but do you know if I update it if it will cancel my warranty for the phone? I have bought a 3 year warranty for it and I don't want it to not count if I update it and something happens to it.

With Bell in Canada with a 3 year plan and I bought a 3 year warranty plan too.

Hello and welcome to Android Forums Stargasm!

OXA is a multi language pack and there has been no ICS release for it yet.

As for Kies not supporting software upgrading, this could be because a different firmware version to your original was flashed after repair and it does not match your phone's ID. Without knowing your original codes, I cannot say for sure. I would take it to a Samsung Service Point and ask them or get them to flash ICS for you.

Updating your phone to the official ICS firmware for your make and model, via Kies, should not affect your warranty. However, flashing it via Odin or rooting your phone, almost certainly will.

I have the CSC code OLC which I can't find anywhere. Phone is unlocked, my carrier is Vodafone NZ and bought it from Singapore airport duty free.
Kies 2 says CSC:KL2 (XSP).
Simple question please: can I update to ICS?

Your CSC is XSP, for Singapore as shown in post #2, and no update has been released for this yet.

Thanks! I too am having difficulty in tracking that one down.

"O", is usually representative of a sim free multi language pack, above and beyond the language packs installed normally. For instance, they may decide to expand, say, an Asian language pack. I have been adding any "O" CSC codes as, and when, Samsung show a release for one.

Just out of curiosity, where did you purchase your phone, is it locked to a carrier and has it ever been in for repair. I've heard of a few people who have "O" codes on their phones after repairs by Samsung.... this could be coincidence however.

Malaysia. Have lots of languages in there since Malaysia uses different languages. Also the first time the sgs2 was launch, it was using European CSC I think. It was updated a few Weeks later with the language pack. Still on GB 2.3.3 at that time

An update has been released for the CSC, H3G, as per post #2.

Providing you are running the carrier branded firmware and kernel that came with the phone, I would take it to the nearest Three or Samsung Service Point and ask them to update it for you.

I only got The phone yesterday. He said it had been unlocked. So guessing its under The sim free category now. How can I find out if running the official firmware and baseband ??

Settings > About phone... will give you the current baseband.

Unlocking it may have affected your ability to update via Kies and void your warranty. Was this done by a Three Service centre or representative?

The NE shows that you have a H3G, Nordic phone, Sweden. See Network Carrier codes, here:-

SamMobile Firmware Page

Your phone may also be rooted. Download, Root Checker, free from the Play Store, to check this. If it is rooted, see post #1. If not, you will have to wait for the Three release of ICS in Sweden.

If you are based in the UK, you might as well download and install the latest ICS, Three, firmware, XXLPQ, via Odin.

See here for download :-

If you can tell me if that is the original firmware that the phone came with and hasn't been flashed or un-rooted... yes, providing you sort your connection problem out with Kies first.
