    I got my phone yesterday. It looks like I have KE2, but I might be wrong. The build number is GINGERBREAD.XWKE2. I cannot update. I wouldn't know how to use KIES to do this. It doesn't show anything about updates or system settings (in the browser). The normal Android update procedure doesn't show anything as well.

    I am still on KE2 also and Kies is saying that there are no new updates.
    I am on O2.

    Can I know how/where do you check for the latest updates for your sgs2? How come the link posted with the KE7 files are from megaupload and not from samsung? I could not find anything on the SGS2 website mentioning about this update. Only found this:
    Phone Firmware Update - Mobile Phones | SAMSUNG

    You need to use Kies to search for the update. Not all phones have it made available to them yet. Hook your phone up and it will notify you immediately.

    Phone hooked, nothing happened. Or must I wait longer? Can't find anything in the browser indiciting a harware upgrade

    I did open samsung apps and found a camera firmware update. Did that. Found out I already have the latest drivers, I think it was through samsung app and not kies

    By hooking up, you mean with the cable? Then I see a USB-icon, and the only thing I can do is press the home button, which closes KIES. Or do you mean KIES Air? For me nothing happens with both of them.

    Have you downloaded Kies to your computer? You need to have the software open, then plug in your phone. It will then communicate and automatically check for updates.
