    I am running a unbranded rooted (using CF-Root) SGS2 using GINGERBREAD.XWKE7. There is a new firmware update as we all know but after my phone downloads it, it fails to install after the requested reboot. Can anyone help me by telling what the firmware version and where I can get it please?

    Any help would be grateful.:D

    after ur phone downloads it? are u using automatic updates via Kies or something? (not sure how this works, ive never done it via kies or thru the phone before :D)

    but if ur rooted, u should be familiar with flashing via Odin..
    [ROM + Guide]Official i9100 Firmwares KF1/2/3/4/, KG1/2/3/5/6/7, KH1/3 Download - xda-developers

    check out this link and download XXKG5 (OXA Poland) the newest official firmware being released on kies. flash that via Odin. that'd update ur firmware but remove root. to root again, go to the CF root page and download the KG5 CF root kernel here:
    [17.08.2011][CF-Root v4.1] KE2/7/8, KF1/2/3/4, KG1/2/3/5/6/7, KH1/3 - su+bb+CWM4 - xda-developers

    job done :)

    Update - I'm now running 2.3.4 having found another post. Simples. Heshanj your contribution is much appreciated in helping others and gave me the confidence to give it a go. Many thanks


    Sorry to jump on this thread but I just want to feel 100% sure before I upgrade my SGS2 to KG5.
    Until now I've always used Kies to update official firmware which is currently I9100XXKE7 02UKG2 but feel I'm missing out waiting for 2.3.4 to come to the UK. So i'm prepared to take the plunge and have downloaded Odin + the Poland version of KG5 FROM xda. As I want to stay with official software and don't want to change any installed programs can I just flash the KG5 and not worry about the root part?
    It is this that is confusing me as I thought I could upgrade the firmware with Odin without rooting.
    Am I missing something? :eek:

    Appreciate any clarification

    Just flashed the firmware as I don't want to root at the moment. As easy as using Kies but alot quicker. :D Also found a Gtalk fix so have video chat as well.:cool: All in all very pleased and glad I finally took the plunge.

    Many thanks

    yes the gtalk fix is great, seeing that the video thing was removed from the official firmware for some reason (a test version, KG2 had it, weirdly) remember, whenever u wanna root, the process is exactly the same :D flash the CF root kernel via Odin, the best and fastest way, in my opinion
