    The only one in SamMobile is a 3G variant :( That I tried and it gave me a ruddy boot loop !

    To cut along story short my SGSII got water damaged at work. I had it repaired and cleaned by a local company I found while trawling the net. This after being told my SGSII was in for a long and drawn out death due to corrosion by the repairers I usually use.

    Happy days, well yes, and they got happier. My wife took pity on me (before I had it repaired) and gave me half towards a shiny SGSIII which is now sat next to me rooted running Siyah and NeatROM (who needs warranties !)

    So now I have to sell my SGSII (I have to pay my half of the deal back to her !)and I want it stock to do so. I've currently got it waiting to set up on the leaked "official" XJLS JB, as it would be when very first switched on.

    As you mentioned in an earlier post of yours... it's all part of my New Year's resolutions...

    To be nicer

    To stop drinking

    To stop smoking

    To stop flirting

    Anyway, I can't stop here chatting with people who can't even find their firmware on SamMobile. I've got to get ready and get myself down the pub, through all this snow, as I need to stock up on cigarettes and have a liquid lunch with one of the barmaids. ;)

    Pub? Chance would be a fine thing, I'm surveying drainage on a building site in Mansfield today . Then I sit down after tea to flash, while the missus starts a run of three night shifts.

    Friday is usually the one day a week I get to the pub.

    Any way I'm most indebted to you and pleased you sre sticking to your new year resolutions! ;) :)

    You could have spoilt me further by telling me that SamMobile firmwares are now one file rather than the three or four before. (You put it in PDA and it flashes the lot from there - that took half an hour to find out). Confused ? You bet I was. Incidentally Odin 3.07 is very quick and works like a charm. I can thoroughly recommend it.

    So now I have a stock, unrooted, SGSII running ICS 4.0.4.

    Does any one want to buy it ?

    You only had to ask dynomot! It's been in my post, here, for months, under the heading, "My firmware is not eligible for ICS yet but I want it now!". It even comes with a nice little video! :D

    If it's all the same to you, I think I'll do a swerve on that offer... after reading your threads here and here. ;)

    :D I thought you would. My listing in the classified section of Phandroid is honest. I even posted a link to my dropped in filthy water thread. (The missus thinks I don't want to sell it..... she knows me too well).

    No ooberrandy... that is a restriction by the site that only allows you to d/l a file every 30 min's. You can start your d/l and then you have to wait another 30 min's to d/l another one. The d/l doesn't stop after 30 min's on the Regular, free, d/l. ;)

    Ah thanks. I thought it was a 30 min restriction cause my original download didnt work (chrome crashed and I wondered if that had caused it).
