    Tried 3x too get this root to work....I went back and noticed on the top of the XDA thread that it only works for ICS phones. I'm glad that you showed me mobile odin....now I just got too get the phone ready for it.

    I hadn't actually used it myself but came across it yesterday in the All Things Root forum.

    However, Mobile Odin should be able to take care of your flashing requirements and then, if you wish, you can root afterwards.

    I just tried that but Mobile Odin gives me a error message "SuperUser access is needed, but could not be acquired......"

    I have a friend with a older laptop(apparently runs like crap) that I will try Odin on, or I will go buy another laptop for a spare. I spent most of the day reading the rooting/flashing guides that you and others built.....awesome job and thank you!

    Providing you follow the instructions for flashing very carefully, then XEU firmware will cause you no problems other than it will revert your phone to its factory condition and so you should make a backup of your files, etc. and make sure you are fully sync'd with Contacts, Calender, etc; with your Google account. There are several threads in the forum, some by me, describing this.

    However, if, as you say, your phone is as it was, out-of-the-box, you could take it to a Samsung Service Point and explain that you cannot update and ask them to do it for you.

    You're in a Catch 22 situation. You need to be rooted to use Mobile Odin and the only way you can do that running Gingerbread is by using the PC Odin for Windows. If you can just borrow someone's PC then use this guide for rooting.

    Once rooted then you can use Mobile Odin and once updated to ICS you can use that rooting method if need be.

    If you have any further questions on rooting, can I suggest posting them on the All Things Root section of the SGSII forum please.

    A few more new ICS releases have been added to post #2 and I notice that the Spanish CSC code, OXX, has an update to the LPG version of ICS.

    csc: I9100Ojpkj1
    Biuild: Thu Oct 13 13:50:39

    This is IRAQ releated mobile, but in post#1 I saw that ICS is ready.

    Hi all.
    I know it's been asked a thousand times but Kies comes up with the line above when connected.
    My Wife also has a Galaxy S2 and has updated to ICS with no problems, plus both phones from the same shop in the UK (Tesco T-mobile)?

    The details are:-
    PDA : I9100XWKH1
    PHONE : I9100XXKG5
    CSC : I9100XEUKH1

    Any ideas chaps? Or is it a case of wait till somebody releases ICS for my firmware?
    Don't fancy flashing ROMS via Odin etc too!

    Also #2 states XEU has been released already?
    Have i got myself a dodgy phone? :confused:

    Any help would be greatly recieved

    Hello and welcome to android Forums BeWolf! :)

    Yes, you are correct. As per post #2, ICS, Android 4.0.3, has been released for CSC code OJP, Iraq.

    That means - install Kies - connect mobile with USB - Check on Kies on PC firmware update and follow the instructions?/

    Possible to revert, if needed?
  14. ironass

    ironass Well-Known Member

    This is indeed available, as you say, via Kies.

    To revert back to Gingerbread firmware you will need to enter... *#1234# into your dial pad, before updating, and make a note of the 4 lines of code which show your current firmware.

    You would then have to download this firmware and flash it with Odin, as per post #1.

    Great, master chief!

    Do i need root?
  16. ironass

    ironass Well-Known Member

    To update via Kies... No.

    This would be an official firmware update issued by Samsung to your CSC code.

    As you mentioned in some post page#3, Kies doesn't like O codes mobiles...
    Kies said to me that 2.3.5 is the lastest firmware

    Going to Sam Mobile i found ICS only for that mobile

    PDA: I9100JPLPC
    CSC: I9100OJPLP9
    Version: 4.0.3
    Date: 2012-05-01
    Regions: Arabic

    And mine is

    PDA: I9100JPKJ2
    CSC: I9100OJPKJ1

    Should I wait? Or i can flash...

    It would appear that so far, OJP, has only been released for Iraq. You may want to wait if you are not in Iraq... if not, you can flash it via Odin, see post #1, if you feel competent.

    Thanks for keeping this track!)
    Does Kies detects location? How do they know where am i?

    I would try to flash with ODIN. But which firmware should I take to ICS flash.?
  20. ironass

    ironass Well-Known Member

    They use your CSC and firmware codes. So, for instance, you could have a Nordic phone with a Swedish language pack and be living in Australia and it would update it to the latest Nordic firmware.

    If you want the Iraq OJP firmware now... you will have to flash it with Odin. See post #1.

    Hi. Im new to this, so please forgive my ignorance. I hope im doing this correctly.
    I am in New Zealand, and bought my S2 online, out of Hong Kong.
    My *#1234# says CSC. i9100OJPKJ1, so I assumed the CSC would be OJP (Iraq), but when I connect phone to Kies, it says that my CSC is KJ1 (MID). I cannot find KJ1 on the list, but MID is United Arab Emrates Which one do you think it would be. Kies also tells me that I have the latest firmware even though OJP (Iraq) is in bold. ?? Many thanks.

    Strange... but not unheard of.

    I'm guessing that the vendor had a whole batch of i9100's with United Arab Emirates, (MID), firmware, which would restrict sales to that market, and has flashed the OJP, Open, firmware over it to cover a wider area and thus increase their market. This practice by vendors has been mentioned several times in this thread.

    You can...

    1. Take this up with the vendor

    2. Take it to a Samsung Service Point and explain the situation and hopefully they will flash an update for you.

    3. Referring to post #1 under, "My firmware is not eligible for ICS yet but I want it now!", flash a firmware yourself.

    Hi again. Didn't find a CSC for my mobile, so went to some store where lot of friends of mine purchased mobiles. They want 100$ to install ICS !!! SO i decidd to make a read read on xda-developers and here.

    Please, advice, if I'm on correct way.

    My mobile is: OJPKJ1 (CSC) and OJPKJ2 (PDA). Kies says this is latest firemware ( Android 2.6.35)

    I found the following:

    [ROM+Guide]Official i9100 Firmwares LPE/Q/7/2/F/S/4/7/G/9/W/D/F Download - xda-developers

    Android 4.0.3

    This package has: PDA: XWLPF| Modem/phone: XXLPX| CSC: XEULP5

    XWLPF Stock Kernel:
    Password: intratech@XDA

    Individual CSC Packages

    Arabic OJPKG1 CSC: http://uploadmirrors.com/download/0A...I9100OJPKG1.7z

    As i understand for ODIN flashing it's relevant only XWLPF package and specific CSC (Arabic OJPKG1 CSC), which should be added to Odin as PDA and CSC. No modem file.

    And after that following the guide?

    What is wrong with OJP, ICS, (Android 4.0.3), here?

    I could be a millionaire!

    So, correct me if I'm wrong, you intend flashing XWLPF, ICS, (Android 4.0.3), which comes with a European language pack, and then you propose to flash a CSC for OJP, Gingerbread, (Android 2.3.6), to get the language pack you need?

    /What is wrong with OJP, ICS, (Android 4.0.3), here?/

    Now I'm totally confused. This archive (I didn't find it not on this site, neither samfirmware or xda-developers) includes 4 files.
    I quess, this is the one I need I9100_CODE_I9100JPLPC_CL537255_REV02_user_low_ship.tar.md5

    But why is it 4 files inside?

    And could I use this one?
    XXLPQ -- Update Galaxy S2 to Android 4.0 Official Firmware Manually

    Nevertheless, Kies is not relevant after Odin, so...

    If I will want to reverse (I have some my job related app, not sure it will work on ICS, can't try it on other phone -
    Flash this one: AndroidFirmwares.net - Download Firmware ?


    Indeed -)) 1$ for each flash)
    Actually, I planned to update to 4.0.3 only. It should have all languages I need.
