    Apologies to those who get angry about people not doing their research as I already have and am just need advice. I have a UK unbranded S2 that I tried to update to ICS. The upgrade got stuck and I unplugged. I tried to recover using emergency recovery and this also failed. I contacted Samsung who told me to take it to a service centre (phone not rooted so still in warranty) but the nearest one is 30 miles away. I decided to flash the stock firmware myself which went fine but now I cannot upgrade via kies so don't know whether I have the correct stock gingerbread firmware (I9100XWLP7_I9100XEULP5_XEU) as found it very confusing as to which one is correct. If I flash the official ICS rom will I lose all my apps/app data in the process (but if done through kies I wouldn't)? I presume my warranty is also now void?
