Default Jelly Bean update - Dummies Guide

Last updated 17 MAY 2014

Please read all items in posts #1, #2 and #3 carefully and thoroughly as they should answer most of your update queries. Particularly post #3 as this has, "Tips for using this Dummies Guide".

This thread is only for the Jelly Bean, (JB), update* for...

Samsung Galaxy SII, GT-i9100, GT-i9100M, GT-i9100P, GT-i9100T, GT-i9100G

(To check your model number... Settings > About phone > Model number)

(*For update to ICS, Android 4.0.?, see, here.)


#1.1. What determines if I can update to JB?

It doesn't matter where you bought your phone or what sim card you are using or what location you are using it in. 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, "Version", with 4 lines of information...


PDA refers to the language pack and 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, languages, 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.


(***Please include the above information when posting a question)

The CSC code will determine if JB has been released for your phone's firmware and will look something like this... I9100XYZLPZ or I9100MXYZLPZ

The important part to determine your eligibility for JB 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 JB is available for your CSC code.


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

For the language packs included in the various stock releases, see, here. The code for your language pack is shown in PDA, above, and is the 2 letters following your model version, i.e. i9100XWLSS or for the variants, i9100G/M/P/T/XWLSS. All language packs contain English.

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

Samsung, Jelly Bean, User Manual, (English, Europe), download, here.


#1.2. Tips... on how to prevent update problems

Although the JB update is a, “No wipe”, update, meaning that during the installation of the new firmware an attempt will be made to update and integrate all your existing app’s and settings to run with the new JB firmware. However, it is possible to receive corrupted downloads of firmware updates, and also, not all app’s or settings on your phone may be compatible with JB or correctly integrated. This can, of course, cause problems since it is difficult to track down the cause of such problems and, in the case of ICS, the blame was in many cases unfairly placed on the ICS firmware. The advice for a trouble free installation is to back everything up and do a Factory Reset and a format of your internal and external memory, particularly if you have moved some app’s to your internal/external SD cards, prior to the update, thus enabling a clean, “vanilla”, install and then re-sync your phone with your Google account after updating and checking that all is well before re-downloading your app’s from the Play Store. For more details on this, see, Firmware update problems... what you can do!.
The choice is yours.

After updating, re-calibrate your battery as follows in post #1, here.

Always ensure that you have a fully charged battery before updating.

I would recommend avoiding OTA, (Over The Air), updates if possible as they can cause problems if the download is interrupted or corrupted. If you do choose OTA, make sure your battery is fully charged and use Wi-Fi as the download can be around 500+MB.


#1.3. 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".


#1.4. I have an *** carrier sim card... why can't I get JB?

See #1.1.


#1.5. JB 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. It has also emerged during the ICS update 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 #1.6.
.

#1.6. I have rooted my phone. Can I get JB?

You will not be able to receive JB via Kies, the Samsung PC Suite, if you are rooted or have changed your firmware, CSC code, 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 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 the original stock firmware, if you know it. You could, of course, use the method in #1.7.


#1.7. My CSC code is not eligible for JB yet but I want it now!

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

Stock, official, Samsung Galaxy S2 firmware can be downloaded from the SamMobile Firmware Page, after registering, by entering either "i9100, i9100G, i900M, i9100T, i9100P" in the, "Search device here", box on the page followed by your CSC code, (i9100***), see #1.1. To see all firmware releases for your model of phone, just omit the CSC code.

For step-by-step instructions and video on installing firmware via Odin, see here.
(Ignore the ICS file that they suggest you download and use the official JB firmwares 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).



#1.8. When will JB be available for my CSC code?

The answer to that is that if you have not received it by now... you never will. See below.

What I can say is that Jelly Bean is, IMHO, worth having. Firmware wise it puts the the SII on a par with the SIII. It brings a lot of new applications and features to the SII.

Update on Jelly Bean releases so far

Over a year after the official release of Jelly Bean, Android 4.1.2, for the SGSII and more than 80% of all the CSC codes in post #2 have now been updated to JB. In fact, some of these individual CSC codes have now received as many as 7 separate JB updates to give them the latest version of JB. See, #1.9.

Of those CSC codes yet to receive the update to JB, by far the biggest proportion are carrier branded firmware and are the responsibility of the carriers to update. Since the SGSII is now over 3 years old and at its EoL, (End of Life), these carriers have decided to not to spend the time, money and effort on JB support for the SGSII and prefer instead to concentrate on the newer models such as SGS4, SGS3, Note3, etc: The Galaxy S2 will not receive the JB updates to Android 4.2.2, 4.3 or to KitKat, Android 4.4.

So, what do you do if JB has not been released yet for your CSC code?

1. You can, as per #3.6, contact your carrier directly and see if they have any plans for releasing JB for your phone, as Samsung will have sent them the stock, Samsung, JB firmwares over the last year and will only be awaiting their return with the added carrier, "bloatware", for release, should those carriers decide to support JB. For non carrier, unbranded, firmware you can contact Samsung who may be waiting for the OK from a country's telecommunications authority before being allowed to release their firmware. Certain Middle Eastern countries are notoriously slow in granting such permissions, for instance.

2. You can flash any of the stock Samsung firmware releases so far for your model of phone and language pack, see #1.1, (all firmwares contain the English language), by carefully reading and following the step-by-step instructions and video in the link in #1.7. Please take the time to read posts #1, #2 and #3 first as they will answer a lot of your questions.

3. Root your phone by carefully reading and following the step-by-step instructions and videos in posts #1, #2, and #3 of the Rooting Galaxy S2 - Dummies Guide and install any of the custom ROM's, (firmware), that are available for the SGSII, including JB, 4.2.2 or the very popular NEAT ROM KitKat Android 4.4.2 ROM. If you have any questions about rooting or custom ROM's, see the, "All Things Root", section of the forum.

The choice... is yours!



#1.9. Jelly Bean Build releases

Contrary to popular belief, firmware releases such as Jelly Bean are not a single entity but rather they are constantly evolving and receiving updates for bug fixes and features. Hence, a particular CSC code may receive, 1, 2, 3, 4, or more updates. Since Samsung do not release change logs for these it can be difficult to place these releases in order. The release build can be found on your phone by going to...

Settings > About phone or About device > Build number (i.e. XWLSN).

In SamMobile listings, see #1.7, for firmware this is shown under PDA and are the last 3 letters.

This is a rough guide to the builds so far by the fixes and content contained in them...

(LS4, LS8) (LSD, LSE, LSF, LSG, LSH, LSI, LSJ, LSK, LSM, LSN, LSQ LST) (LSS, LSU, LSW, LSY, LSZ, MS1, MS2, MS3, MS5, MS8, MSA).

Tips for using this Dummies Guide.

I have tried to keep this, "Dummies Guide", as simple and easy to understand as possible for absolute beginners, with no prior knowledge of Android and the Samsung Galaxy S2, whilst trying to cover the most commonly asked questions about updating.

#3.1. Please take the time to read posts #1 and #2 carefully and thoroughly before posting a question as they should contain most of the answers you require. These 2 posts are the sum total of knowledge gained from the previous ICS update.

#3.2. If my reply to a question states, "See, #1.7". It means that the answer to your query is already contained in post #1, item #7. Re-read that item again, carefully, and it should answer your question and saves me the time and trouble of having to repeat myself all over again.

#3.3. When posting a question, please include your, "Version", details as shown in post #1.1.

#3.4. Please, please, please, help keep this thread on topic. It is designated for the actual update to Jelly Bean and not for Kies connection problems, general JB questions or problems, backup and restore, app's, rooting, battery life, etc: There are other threads on the forum for that or you can start one of your own.

#3.5. I will endeavour to update post #2 with the latest JB releases, on a daily basis, So, please keep checking. It is also worth re-reading post #1 from time-to-time as this too will be updated if new information is released.

#3.6. Do not ask when, "XYZ", firmware will be available... I have no idea. If the firmware you are interested in is carrier branded, then contact your carrier directly as they are responsible for returning it to Samsung for release. See, #1.8. For unbranded firmware queries, Samsung, Contact Us.

#3.7. Please do not PM me with JB update questions. Ask them on the forum so that others may benefit from the questions and answers.

First official Samsung JB update is for the GT-i9100 on CSC code...

FOP = SPAIN

This is available via Kies and has an XX language pack = Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom.

If you are not on CSC code FOP you can still install this by following the instructions in #1.7.

Cool... looks like got Jellybean now... haven't checked Kies in quite awhile. But no time to go through the hassle of updating yet. Its fast if you just update and don't care, but taking care to wipe, format and reapplying all the settings takes time. Its time worth taking in my opinion, but have to find a free day to do it properly...

Cheers... let you know how it goes when I get it done.

Hi ironass -
I searched the SamMobile Firmware page for i9100G and does not list any 4.1; what am I doing wrong?

Not reading #2.2 I guess!

There has been no JB releases for any of the variants. If the ICS release schedule is anything to go by, the G variant was released about 2 months after the GT-i9100.

I guess my confusion is because
"#2.2. A red P, T, G or M denotes that JB is available for that variant. Example: XYZ = RURITANIA P"
andost #1 does shows G variant in read. I also searched for variants M, P and T with the same results; they are also in read under post #1

Please tell me what I am doing wrong?

It is post #2 that contains the CSC codes and countries that have been, or are waiting to be, updated.

It does state quite clearly in #1.1...

Post #2 does not show a red G against any of the CSC/Country codes I think you will agree.

Hi brightman!

Try re-downloading the Chinese, unbranded, firmware, I9100OZHLSF, again from here.

Open Odin by right clicking and select, "Run as Adminitrator"

Place it in PDA in Odin as per instructions in the link in #1.7.

Do NOT check, "Re-Partition", in Odin.

Hey Ironass!!

Something told me that you would create such a thread as this - you are the man! - Thank you :-)

I have been following the long awaited update for some considerable time like lots of folks and it seems we are close to having an update here in the UK.

I have a dilema. So far updating from GB to ICS and associated updates inbetween have all gone marvellously WITHOUT any problem and WITHOUT Wiping apart from one small thing.

Currently my Phone shows (*#1234#) CSC : XEU whereas Kies is showing CSC : LPA (CPW).

The phone and PDA all tally - Phone: LQ6 - PDA: LPT

Currently this is no big deal but I would like to update via Kies when the UK XEU variant is released. At the moment when I connect my phone to Kies, it reports "Your device's current firmware version is not supported to update firmware via Kies". My phone is a GT-I9100. I understand that if I try to reflash my CSC, this will wipe my phone, will it not? This reflashing may or may not allow Kies to work but I don't know anything else to try.

I DO NOT want to root my phone but maybe it is the time to back everything up and do a full wipe etc etc as and when I update to Jellybean.

My questions are (please): -

1. Is there any way to get Kies to recognise my firmware right now without wiping my phone?

2. What is the best method to back everything up on a non-rooted phone?

Any help would be greatly appreciated so I can plan my upgrade as when it eventually arrives.

Thank you

3 choices here...

1. Flash a CPW firmware over XEU via Odin to your phone. This, "shouldn't", wipe your phone.

2. Try and change your CSC on the phone to XEU by going to the dial pad using the method, here. This should mean that Kies will now recognise your phone. It will Factory reset it however. I have not personally tried this but some posters reported success in the ICS thread.

3. Stick with XEU firmware as this is unbranded and, "may", be out earlier than CPW, although on ICS they were both at the same time as they are identical.

Unlike rooted phones which can do nandroid, complete mirror image backups of OS, app's and settings, you are restricted to piece meal backups as described in the link in #1.2.

Thanks - real food for thought here.

My phone as you have probably guessed was a CPW phone and continued like that until I became impatient for an update for ICS - 4.0.3 to 4.0.4, which is what I am currently running. I then downloaded a Nordic firmware, via Checkfus, an XEU one, and flashed via Odin. Since then Kies has not recognised my phone.

So I am thinking that flashing to a CPW firmware, might restore everything to what it should be and allow the phone to be updated via Kies as and when :-) Whether I can wait that long though is another question lol!

I will have a think. :-)

I have 125 apps on my phone which I have downloaded from Playstore and the thought of re-downloading and installing them again scares the s**t out of me lol! Backing up my SMS's and Contacts/Email settings and emails isn't so much of a problem. Some of these apps have quite complicated settings and I really haven't the time to write them all down.

I just wish there was some program that could at least record the apps you have together with the settings so that when you reinstall them all is quite simple.

Yesterday I downloaded an app called "App Backup & Restore" - has anyone used this? I would seriously be interested in any comments regarding this.

Thanks again

You might have more luck posting this in the main section of the forum rozel as I am trying to keep this for JB updates only. See #3.4.

I have heard good reports about, "My Backup Pro", mentioned in my link in #1.2, if that helps.

Some people said that upgrading to the official Jelly Bean increased their Dropbox free space to 50 GB. I upgraded to the official Jelly Bean (I'm in Spain) and I have been using Dropbox for quite some time now, but I did not see any increase in my Dropbox space, it is still 5 GB. And yes, I have turned on the automatic upload of photos etc.

Anybody has an idea what are the conditions for this increase of the cloud storage? Do I need to flash Jelly Bean via Kies? Or is there anything else for this Dropbox offer? I could not find any information on this.

The DropBox increase was on the unofficial, LSJ leak, only, so far.

Default stuck in 2.3.5

I'm sorry for being a real noob at this, but i'm so confused right now.
I've had my Phone for over a year now, and i've never updated it, so i thought it was about time.
My CES is TEN.
I tried updating it over wifi several times with no success, so i guess i need to wipe it.
When i go into kies i get no prompt to update, so this was all very cryptic to me.
Can someone help me out a little, is the only way to do this factory resetting my phone? If so, how do i go about doing that?

So, the latest version is 2.3.5?
That's really strange, because a friend of mine got an automatic update for his phone today, which, as far as i know, is identical.
after seeing his updated version, mine looks old and outdated.

The latest version for TEN = NORWAY according to SamMobile, is, ICS, Android 4.0.4. To update manually see post #1...

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

Hello and welcome to Android Forums chikheang!

The only difference between the GT-i9100 and the T variant is the modem which is required for the signal. Since no T variant has been released there is no T modem available for JB. See, here...

Excuse me if this question is dumb, but once these variations are released, do they then go to our Telco companies to add adware? Is this a list of post-adware ones? Because I'll just root if that's the case, Telstra hasn't even got ICS out for some 4g models of the s2 yet >< horrible!

The list in post #2 covers all JB releases, both branded and un-branded, as they are released.

The first, "variant", JB release, post #36, is in fact, carrier branded.

See also, #1.8 and #3.6.

Great thread Ironass.

My CSC is OJV, I currently have 2.3.5 running on my SG2 and I live in Nigeria. I guess we in Nigeria may not ever get JB, considering the fact that ICS has not been released for Nigeria up-till-now,

I'd like to know if I have to first upgrade to ICS before moving on to JB. Or do I just upgrade directly to JB. Thanks.

Following the tip in #1.2, you could go straight to JB.

My Danish GS2 - NEE = NORDIC COUNTRIES - was updated to Jelly Bean 4.1.2 today (it's possible the update has been available longer, I've had update checking turned off for a few months as the past few over the air updates have failed).

Hi, which of the JB CSC's would you recommend I flash on my phone. I went through your list and noticed that there's no OJV CSC and Nigeria is also not on the list.

Nordic Countries, (OXX), so long as you don't mind a European Language pack.

OJV not released. Nigeria did not even get ICS! See post #2, here.

Thanks for the response. I hope you dont find this question annoying, what's the implication of having the nordic pack installed? And what if I try flashing one of the United Kingdom versions on my phone (since they'll belong to English speaking countries)?

Nothing if you require English language as all Language packs contain it.

There have been no UK versions of JB released to-date, as per post #2.

Default M variant JB

JB has been released for the, "M", variant, GT-i9100M, for Canada for unbranded/Virgin, Bell and SaskTel on the following CSC code...

OYC = CANADA (unbranded/Virgin, Bell, SaskTel)

Strange that the CSC code is shown as OYC when in the past it has been BMC for Canada



If you cannot update via Samsung Kies, PC Suite or OTA, (Over The Air), then you can use Odin as per #1.7.

Default Crash after update initiated

What can I do if I accepted to install the update only to find my phone (Galaxy SII) doesn't turn on?

I accepted and pressed install, the phone said it would reboot, and since then it has been completely black.

I removed the battery after a while, pressed the on button, and the first logo appeared, and then it went black again.

If I proceed to press the on button, nothing happens.

Hello and welcome to Android Forums pgdx!

Could you supply the details in post #3.3.

Was this update via Kies, OTA or Odin?

Thanks for the quick reply. It's a bit hard to go to the dial-pad now as the phone wont boot, but I can go to the Android system recovery <3e>.

The phone is a Samsung Galaxy SII, GT-i9100.

I did it through Kies. For some time the phone had been asking me to update and I have postponed it a couple of times before accepting.

In the recovery menu, it says:
# MANUAL MODE #
-- Appling Multi-CSC...
Applied the CSC-code : NEE
Successfully applied multi-CSC.

Ps. The phone has not been rooted, but the development mode was turned on (the one where you can install your own APK's). Furthermore, the phone was connected to the USB port (for charging purposes).
