Owners of the Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100 won’t be left far behind as the device is catching up with the latest version of Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich firmware known as the XXLP2 upgrade.
This said firmware carries several performance improvements over those provided by the earlier firmware versions XXKP8 and XXKPA.
In this article, you will find the steps for updating your Galaxy S2 firmware to Android 4.0.3 build XXLP2. This guide will work only on handset model GT-I9100 and not on other models such as the GT-I9100G. To check whether you’re using handset model GT-I9100, dial *#1234# on your phone and check the handset information.
Congratulations! You have successfully updated your Samsung Galaxy S2 to Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich firmware build XXLP2.

Which things will not work on this Update ? and Which KIES will Work After this Updation?
I think most things should be working. This one is apparently the most stable one. Will try out and report in the next 12 hours or so
One Thing i Wana Ask .. If i do this Update to my S2 .. and after Couple of Weeks IF Samsung Launches Android ICS officially then i Will be after to Update that OTA .. or Through KIES .. ?
I updated but i cant restore. and other problem is i cant get 3g or edge on my phone
This ice cream sandwich is very slow, apps hangs and when i close on galaxy s2 it keeps running all apps. it is stylish but performance wise i am dis-satisfied… please android do something
Can i do this from my gs2 now? it has lit’ning rom the latest version. Will it work for me?
Please, if I want to go back to my old firmware, how can I do that?!
if u want to downgrade use this link
you can but you have to factory restore
is this the skinned version or just plain old android?
No you cant if you need official update must wait all this are unofficial you can update official update via kies not odin.
is this version fully stable ?
no is not
Running since today morning.
I found some issues:
- Viber and Polaris Office aren’t working;
- Home screen wallpaper scrolling not smooth as previous versions;
- Hung 3 times on bluetooth file transfer.
1.they arent ICS optimized yet.
2.change wallpaper to fixed type.
3.blutooth unstable in this beta.
Hey, this is my first time using odin and iv’e been doing the upgrade and the phone stopped downloading from odin and it’s been like 15 mins.. is that suppose to happen?
Nice, but unstable. Downgrading now!
All wokds ok but I cant get a mobile network now, any suggestions?
All works ok but I cant get a mobile network now, any suggestions?
Keeps crashing/freezing. Looks as if some apps, such as contacts, stop responding every so often.
I upgraded my Sim Free Galaxy S 2 last night and had similar problems to the guy with the original post. I have sorted the following ones out by doing the instructions I worked out below :
Solutions to problems after upgrade to ICS
Problem : Browser not working/crashing/or slow
Solution : go to settings, applications, select All at top
Find Internet application on the list and select it
Clear cache AND clear data
Then try it and should work !
Problem : Contacts slow, crashes or not working
Task : To ensure Google knows about all of your contacts
First ensure your contacts are sync’d in Kies
Click contacts on phone within Kies
Make sure they are right, remove all duplicates, and save to pc (this only needed for phone contacts)
then select google contacts at the top of Kies and import the file you just saved (contacts from phone)
Then remove the contacts from your phone.
Sync contacts to google.
Next on your phone go to settings, applications, select All at top
Find the following applications from the list :
Google Contacts Sync
From each one clear cache (if its an option) AND clear data
Then go to settings, accounts and sync
Select your google account and contacts and sync.
This will then sync all of your contacts from Google back to your phone
Task : If opening contacts is still slow then it is down to volume of contacts.
Or if it doesnt load or crashes then on Google contacts (contacts.google.com) check you need everyone that is on there or not and remove any wierd or unneeded ones and sync again to your phone
Second way to speed up loading up your contacts list is :
open contacts on your phone
Go to settings
Tick the box that says ‘Only contacts with phone numbers’
Now try contacts menu and see if it speeds up
This totally worked for me after several weeks of getting frustrated and annoyed at my phone. Thanks man.
P.S Had 7800 contacts so I just changed settings to display only contacts with phone numbers and hey presto!
my phone is the same dan mine keeps freezing
ghanta jastoo…sucks my ball..cam dosent works

Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..

any idea on how to get google app installed with cyanogenmod 9 on S2 with ics?
Guys the best thing u can do is wait until Samsung release
their latest firm ware update for android. Installing android is not equivalent
to installing os in pcs. First android should be customized for the device. Then
only you can get the best performance from your device. If you do this you will
have to face for lot of problems. Please don’t install partially developed firm
ware updates. This is one of them..
