You will lose the NFC capability, that's all.

It should be one file from SamMobile for JB, LSD. This is flashed as per the instructions in #1.7, here.

I also have a Galaxy S2 from O2 in the UK (GT-I9100P) and want to upgrade the firmware due to the wifi freeze bug in ICS. As O2 have not released 4.0.4 I assume I now need to void my warranty and download and install the firmware some other way. That being the case am I best advised to follow Cooper1973 and install JB?

I've no idea what I'm doing so have been looking through this forum for some clues but so far I've not found a step by step guide other than the CNET video telling you how to install ICS. If someone can point me to the right guide that would be really great.

Also - do I have to ask O2 to unlock my phone first? And after installing will all my apps and data (emails etc) be intact?

Hello

Follow this guide
Jelly Bean update - Dummies Guide

The latest LSD release will be fine for your phone but as pointed out by Ironass you will lose NFC.

The release is a non wipe release so your apps etc will be fine but be aware that some apps may not be compatible with this release.

You do not need your phone unlocking but you will lose the O2 branding and O2 specific apps that your carrier has included in the ICS firmware

You should pay attention to this section in the guide

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

The process is pretty simple but if you require any help then just ask
