    Two ways.... (a) the "official" way using Samsung's Kies software (as discussed/debated here). which will tell you if there's a more recent firmware release available for your handset or....

    (b) the "unofficial" way using Samsung's Odin utility program (as described here), which allows you to flash any GS2 firmware to your handset regardless of locale, carrier etc.

    The KE2 firmware is a couple of months older than KG2, but they're both the same (2.3.3) version of Android. Some regions/carriers have received 2.3.4 updates but it's a slow and haphazard rollout. To be certain, what does Settings/About phone/Build number tell you?
