    Okay guys it seems like KE7 is out which will improve the ram & battery:

    Samsung Galaxy S2 KE7 update available now

    as it looks like its out for Basebandversion: I9100XXKE4 phones, but on this site its shows that you can update KE7 via odin:
    How to Manually install XWKE7 Update in Samsung Galaxy S II | Android Total

    am i able to update it via odin without breaking my phone even if i dont have I9100XXKE4 because mine is a Basebandversion: I9100XXKDJ.

    I hope you can help me guys because i really need this update :)

    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.

    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.

    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.
