    KF2 is the newest firmware at the moment. its supposed to have improved battery life. i just flashed mine (frankenstein KF2) yesterday so i'll see how the battery life is today. lol.. n yeah, i doubt it'll be a huge improvement, if ur not keen on flashing too often, u could just wait it out til 2.3.4 is out

    +1 for the Frankenstein + KF2

    Yet again... +1

    I'm rather hoping that the forthcoming CyanogenMod, CM7, may extend battery life as it did on my Nexus One.

    nope. Some regional firmware seem to have limited language options (e.g., KF4 Hong Kong release which primarily supported English & Chinese languages).

    However, I'm running the stock Polish KF2 firmware (not Frankenstein version) and it has robust language support. From what I can see scrolling through Languages in Settings, it supports all Euro languages, Korean, as well as some I don't recognize.

    If there's a specific language you're wondering about, let me know and I'll take a peek to see if stock KF2 supports it.

    I'm also getting great battery life with KF2.

    i still havent flashed and really i dont think i need to? i might just wait for 2.3.4 as my battery life easily lasts one day with moderate use with sync always on with push email going, no rooting so wifi sharing and all that still running, have had no problems with it

    love my sgs2 =)
