    Much appreciated. I used TWRP and cleared the caches. Booted up just fine this morning. Hopefully no more issues. If I end up having to clear the cache about every week, I'll try the new stock ROM.

    does any one know if in this update did they change the radio or so? I thought i had 3 to 4 bars all the time before this 4.0.4 update .. now its 2 bars or so

    I haven't flashed it yet but I assume the radio has been updated. Most of the time when the Rom base changes as it did in this case, a new radio will be included to match. Did you check in About Phone for your Baseband version?

    Yes, it has a new radio. I'm not sure I can tell a lot of difference, although its not worse. Others say its better.

    Try rebooting you computer and see if that helps. Or even another computer if you have one.

    Downloaded through Kies last evening, and I just noticed something: did this update take away the screenshot function?

    Hi flightwriter :hello:

    No its still there. Press and hold power and home at the same time. Might have to hold it several seconds.

    There it is, thanks! It also used to work on mine by holding the Power and Volume "down" buttons at the same time, but that seems to have gone away.
  11. I am new to the samsung galaxy s ii and i was excited when i saw that i could upgrade to the ics in some way. I attempted to last night on the t mobile t989 on kies. However, nothing ever popped up and kies told me no updates were availabe. Now im wondering how i can just go straight to the 4.0.4 someway from gb 2.3.6. Also is this update worth it? or would it be safer to stick with the gb?

    Hi xcoletrain :hello: Welcome to the forums!

    You can use this Odin guide to install ICS 4.0.4. I, personally, think it is worth it. Were you using Kies on your computer?
  13. Yes i was usin
    g kies and it told me here was no ne firmware.
  14. I would also like to add that i just bought the phone about 2 days ago from walmart. I noticed in another thread that other people who also bought the phone earlier than me had it preloaded with 4.0.4. Why was mine left behind?

    I don't know. Look in settings > about phone. What does it say for your Android Version and your Baseband Version?
  16. Version 2.3.6 gb
    Baseband T989UVKL1
    I already checked this stuff. Just wondering if ill be able to download 4.0.4 from odin i guess since kies did not work

    Yes, you can use Odin.

    I was wondering why Kies wasn't working is the reason I was asking about your version. The version you have is not even the latest version of Gingerbread. The latest was T989UVLDE. It was also sent as an OTA update. Have you tried going to about phone and select software update?

    Its hard to believe it wasn't already updated when Walmart got it. I would be tempted to return it and get another one.
  18. So what do you think i should do my friend? Go back to walmart or just do the update myself?

    Its really your decision, but if it was me and I just bought it 2 days ago, I think I would try to return it and get another. With firmware on it that old it makes me wary where its been. You should just be able to put your sim in a new one and off you go.

    If Walmart asks, just tell them the Operating System is 3 updates behind while everyone else is getting the latest one on their phone.

    I have a warranty replacement phone from Samsung directly. It came preloaded with ICS 4.0.4
    Although there is plenty of free ram, it is still super laggy as compared to Gingerbread. I will be downgrading. I lost hope for Samsung.

    You could try a factory reset first. Or try a different launcher like Apex.
  22. Just wanted to say I took the phone back got it replaced. I believe the one they sold me may have been defective or even returned. The new one i exchanged for was brand new. Running on 4.0.4 now with no problems. Thanks for the help :)

    That's great! :thumbup:

    Yeah, I'm like you. I think the other one you had must have been refurbished or something. Enjoy your new one. :)

    Super laggy? Impossible unless your underclocking. Jk. But really. Do you use your task manager and control your open/running apps?

    I have a S2 from AT&T (not rooted).
    I just did the update some minutes ago via Kies, and now my cellphone is locked.

    It's asking me for a "Network Lock Control Key".

    I had already updated my cellphone using Kies in the past, and it did not lock it. What can be the problem? How can I solve it?

    And I'm not living in the US right now, so I cant take it to the vendor to re-unlock it!

    any help will be appreciated
