    Ok so I've spent some time reading over the last couple of days and I still don't seem to have much joy. I've downloaded the firmware from sammobile for optus ICS update.

    I'm wanting to do the update without deleting everything that's on there. I have apps on there with info that I need. Every time I try to sync with kies, it just gets stuck 1/2 way through and never completes it. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling kies, same thing.

    Also I think I found the steps through the flashguide but it seems like it'll format my phone and delete everything on it which i'm trying to avoid.

    I'm not quite sure what to do, I'm wondering if there's something wrong with my phone or it got corrupted with the last update but

    I believe it is infact rooted because when I look at the phone info it does say: root@dell88 #2 but I could be wrong. I have a basic to intermediate understanding of this stuff but not complex.

    I'm hoping someone can guide me through it or just give me some advise!

    Thanks in advance. Have a good day.

    First of.... ODIN and KIES are like water and oil, they don't mix.
    Odin is for flashing firmware that you can download. Kies is for official upgrades. First you need to know which one you want.

    Second, updates via Kies is non-wipe and in most cases for Odin, you can select non-wipe versions of firmware as well. The current advice is to of course do a wipe anyway if possible to prevent/solve problems with firmware clashes.

    Thirds, that root does not mean your phone is rooted....

    Try to explain what you want to do, then those who know can guide you on the best way to do it. Example upgrade via official channels so as to maintain warranty or not.

    Vodafone release ICS today according to this:-

    Vodafone Galaxy S II Update Available Today via Kies, April 17th OTA

    Not sure at this stage if it is all Vodafone locations or just the UK.

    EDIT Includes Spain, (ATL). Germany, (VD2)

    This is the update via Kies. The promised OTA, (Over The Air), update is scheduled for the 17th April.

    Also released are:-

    SwissCom, (SWC)

    Thanks so much Russell Ng for your response!

    I'm an Optus customer in Australia with an S2 so technically the ICS update is supposed to be available for me through kies but it's not. I've called Optus and Samsung and they just give me vague answers and nothing specific.

    At the end of the day I want ICS. And I don't really care what I have to do to get it at this point. I would prefer to not lose my Apps because I have quite a bit of stuff that I couldn't get back. I have however moved all my contacts to my SIM and my SMS & phone logs have been backed up. I've put all my photos on my computer just incase.

    I guess the fact that I can't get ICS when I should be able to is concerning me and leaving me wonder if it's my phone or something else.

    Anyway I would be happy to answer any specific questions anyone has (as best I can) to shed some light on this - I can provide screen shots, details, etc. I have provided the CSC etc. details in a previous post.

    Thanks again!

    From what Ironass reported, it seems ICS have yet to be rolled out for Australia. In that case ecinereb, you either have to wait or use Odin to flash. I have not flash, since my phone works fine for me with Gingerbread and I rather have ICS ONLY when they fixed all the issues.

    As for flashing, there are a lot of advice on those already in the forum. Have a search. Although some of the senior members are experts and would be able to redirect you to the best downloads.

    Why dont you try Sammobile site at >smartphone>android>your model>your place for your original firmware?

    I think it is only Europe which gets the update. Australia is definitely not there.

    You can download 'root check basic' from 'google play' to find if your phone is rooted or not

    You've got the Austrian 'mob' csc version and will have to wait till the Austrian firmware version of ICS is released and update your phone using kies, that's if your phone is not unlocked... if it is from what I know you won't get the update through kies and will have to use Odin to upgrade.
    Check the info in the first page of this thread or click the link in my earlier post.. for info on how to update through Odin. you will require some info from someone more knowledgeable than me... hope that helps...

    I have nfc O2 S2 (O2U code), which should be available according to earlier in this thread.

    Still not getting update via Kies.

    Did it Factory Reset ? If so when you reinstalled stuff/connected to google account etc, did you lose the layout of all your home screens ?

    If so i might prefer to wait for the OTA update, if, that doesn't need factory reset too:p

    After reading posts in another thread decided to go ahead with it.
    Damn thing came back on as new but with my apps still there so all my homescreens are as if i put it on for the first time....gonna take a while to get it all back how i like it :( Even having to setup all my email accounts etc again :( :(

    I'm on a Virgin Mobile U.K sim free S2 and have just taken the ICS FW update via Kies so I imagine if you are in the UK and have a sim free, you should be able at last to get it.

    No ICS update has been released for the i9100P variant yet! ;)

    I'm afraid that whoever said it was available, is wrong! :D

    XEU update from U.S. worked flawlessly via Kies. Seems to run smoothly.

    Got an update too on XEU in the UK. Lost my homescreen layout but all my apps still on my device.. Haven't noticed any significant difference yet other than a few menu screens and some colours...

    Thanks - I must have misunderstood.
