Cry SGSII heating after update to ICS

Hallo everyone!

So since a week ago i'm a proud owner of Samsung Galaxy S2 (yay!).
It had Android 2.3.5 at the beginning so 2 days ago i've updated it to ICS (4.0.3). I've updated it via ODIN (since it couldn't find updates via KIES or by air) with a official ROM (if that's what it's called) from samfirmware.
Since then my phone heats up a lot more compared to 2.3.5 , i don't know how's that possible but i haven't installed any new apps or used the phone differently since the update. I know it's normal to heat up when playing games but even if i'm browsing the web it heats up a lot. I haven't this problem with 2.3.5

Any suggestions?

Backing up your phone data and performing a phone factory reset from Android's Settings, would (usually) solve the heating issue... especially when you upgrade firmware from 2.3 to 4.0.

I did .. One before upgrading , one after upgrading , one a day after and one today. No difference... What's the average normal temperature of SGSII? Mine jumped from 31C (sleeping) to 38C (with 10 minutes of browsing). Is that normal? Good thing that it doesn't go higher than 38C.

PS: No heating while charging.

Those figures (temp.) are pretty much average readings for the phone. Mine is about 29-33 (sleep) to 38-42 (multitasking[constant switching and background processing] while browsing)... and 45-48 hits using 3D apps... undervolting at 50mV but I'm using thick leather casing here; hence contributing to the slight increase of temp. readings.
