    I got my S2 yesterday simfree i am using an O2 sim, It came with v2.3.3 , I did an update search on the phone and it said there was one, YES , I thought 2.3.4 , but after a full flash update my phone was still on 2.3.3 , maybe it was an O2 update :(

    Another thread with a very misleading title.

    Or is it just me?

    I clicked to see if Official 2.3.4 firmware update via kies has finally arrived.
    How can it be "Official" when it isn't even out yet?

    its coz Kies is based on ur region. meaning it is officially out via Kies to some users, but not all.

    Nobody else seems to have found the meaning difficult to grasp. The opening post does make the purpose quite clear. ;)

    However I'll edit the title to make it obvious to even a cursory glance.

    I did have my samsung galaxy 2 running on android 2.3.3 but after installing villain rom 2.4.2 onto my device in the phone status menu it now says android version 2.3.4. Am I actually running android 2.3.4 or is this a mistake?

    What does 2.3.4 do better than 2.3.3?

    Does it fix bugs or add features or both.

    Villain Rom comes with 2.3.4, so no it's not a mistake.

    hey guys, i have a SGSi9003 (rooted).. still in the firmware 2.2, i'm from the Philippines. the Skies I installed via the original cd inside the box as i bought it. i tried to upgrade my firmware via kies, but didn't work.. no updates were available. then i tried via my phone, through settings and firmware updates, it didn't push through. is there any 2.3 firmware available for my SGSi9003 here in the Philippines? i don't wanna try Odin, I might brick my phone.

    Thanks! :)

    On a contract with ThreeUK:

    Kies shows;

    PDA: KF4
    PHONE: KF2
    CSC: KF1 (H3G)

    *#1234# shows the same. (minus the H3G)

    Still 2.3.3, but waiting patiently. :)

    Quick question. How do you determine what the PDA, PHONE and CSC are? Is it in the settings sectiosn and if so what info is related to what? Eg is the 'baseband version' in phone settings the PDA, PHONE or CSC?

    EDIT: DOH, just read your comment again and saw you found out that info from Kies.

    EDIT 2: Just hooked up my phone and started kies but can't find the info that you found. Where is it in kies?

    When the phone is connected, you'll see "Firmware Information" on the Basic Information page.

    Under that, you'll see;

    "Current firmware version: PDA:? / PHONE:? / CSC:?"


    But you can also find out on the phone itself by going into the dialer like you normally would for a call, and entering: *#1234#.
    A different page comes up with;

    PDA: I9100 ?
    PHONE: I9100 ?
    CSC: I9100 ?

    On O2 UK, nothing to report, just a quick question, if I check on my phone for software updates, will it detect a new update and if so, can I install it OTA? or is it all done through Kies?

    Hi Evohicks, I spoke to O2 regarding this, they are still "checking" the 2.3.4 update and have no idee when it will be let loose!

    Guys, i dont think i understand how it works.

    I have unbranded phone. My network is T-Mobile.

    Now, do i have to wait for T-Mobile to release update Through Kies and get Branded firmware, or am i waiting for Samsung to release it on Kies and have my mobile still unbranded?

    Just stumbled across this thread. I am on Three (H3G) contract.

    Went to Settings > About Phone > Software Update > Check for Updates

    I then had to register with Samsung (email and password, took 1 minute) and an update was available. Downloaded over Wi-Fi in about 30 seconds. Just installing now.

    What is in the update?

    Unbranded = generic = update direct from Samsung.

    Networks only come into the equation if the handset has a customised firmware, only found on handsets sold directly by the network (or a retail partner).

    My 2 cents input.

    In Australia, carrier is Optus.

    PDA: KG1
    Phone: KF3
    CSC: KG1 (OPS)
    Android Version: 2.3.3

    KIES and Phone state that I'm updated........go figure
