    hello all

    I am very confused. When I connect my s2 to kies (latest version) it tells me that my firmware is the latest version.

    PDA:LD3 PHONE: LD3 CSC: LD3(VMC)

    PDA: I9100MUGDL3
    PHONE I9100MUGDL3
    CSC I9100MBMCLD3
    BUILD INFO thurs apr 19 15:39:18 KST 2012

    Within KIES under tools if I click firmware upgrade and initialization it tells me
    gt i9100m does not support initializing. The phone is just about 1 month old. Am I doing something wrong? Is this normal?

    Your phone is already on the latest firmware for your CSC code, I9100MBMCLD3, which is ICS for Bell, Canada. For more information, see posts #1 and #2, here.

    AFAIK this indicates that your phone cannot be updated via Kies. There could be a number of reasons for this as outlined in post #1 of my earlier link.

    Hi

    I have checked the eligibility of my phone here.

    My phone is a GT-I9100
    CSC: I9100XEFKE2

    If I understood well, you put this CSC in bold and so I expect to have an eligible phone. You wrote that, for the letter in red "G", I9100XEFKE2 is also eligible.
    Did I understood correctly that GT-I9100 and GT-I9100G can be upgraded??

    The problem is that with the very latest Kies version 2.5.0.12094_28 (I installed a few minutes ago), it says that there is no update available, although I'm still running the very old 2.3.3

    Any idea what could be wrong? Is it really eligible for an upgrade to ICS?
