    Hi All,

    Apologies for asking a queation that has probably been asked a million times by now.

    I recently upgraded my SGS2 to ICS with odin and i instantly regret it. It's sluggish, crashes a lot and is basically worse than Gingerbread.

    So, looking to flash it back but i can't seem to find the Gingerbread files anywhere, all of the links i've tried are dead.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Ok, to get more eyes on this I've moved it to the Galaxy S 2 Forum. The people who frequent there have more experience with your particular phone, so hopefully they can help a little better. :)

    Hi, thanks for that, 'm new to all of this so may need a bit of spoon-feeding.

    I'm looking for the files to re-install Gingerbread 2.3.6, im also looking for the Vodafone UK version, if there is such a thing...

    The latest firmware that I can find for Vodafone UK is Android 2.3.5 and is BUKJ3 which you can download from here:-

    Hotfile.com: One click file hosting: I9100BUKJ3_I9100VODKI2_VOD.zip

    To install this to your phone you will need to flash it using Odin3 v1.85. Step-by-step instructions on how to do this are here:-

    [ROM+Guide]Official i9100 Firmwares KL1/2/3/LA2,4/LB2,LPE/Q/7/2/F/S/4/7 Download - xda-developers

    Please read it very carefully. ;)

    Dude, i can't thank you enough, i had to do a factory reset after flashing it (google services and framework kept failing) but it is now back to Gingerbread and working like a dream.

    Cheers again dude, faith in humanity restored.
