It looks like there’s no stopping the Samsung Galaxy S2 when it comes to firmware updates. From official releases by Samsung to underground modified versions, the Galaxy S2 proves to be a fantastic device among many consumers.

Galaxy S II i9100 Users Now Have Android 4.0 Based MIUI

by: Christine TorralbaJanuary 26, 2012

If you already know what MIUI is, you’re well aware that it looks nothing similar to the Android versions that are on your device. For one thing, the MIUI is light while the Ice Cream Sandwich has a dark exterior. It is also simple, whereas ICS is full of different menus. Also, MIUI is sleek compared to the others that are clunky.

But because the Android 4.0 version is taking a while to be adapted to other smartphones and tablets other than the Galaxy Nexus S, many are growing tired of waiting. Considering that the Nexus S is still the only device where the ICS OS is officially available in, it is understandable why developers are getting impatient.

How to Update Samsung Galaxy S2 to Android 4.0.3 ICS XXKP8 Firmware

by: Carl ParkerJanuary 23, 2012

Firmware is practically raining from the sky! After XXKP1 for Android 4.0 and XXKP2 for Android 4.0.1 were released, an all-new leak of Android 4.0.3 just recently hit the servers. Samsung Galaxy S2 GT I9100 users must be in heaven with this firmware, the XXKP8 for Android 4.0.3.

Bear in mind that firmware version XXKP8 for Android 4.0.3 is not officially from Samsung Electronics. As such, there is no ETA for when this update will be officially pushed through Samsung KIES. Because this is a leaked version, it will also need to be updated through Odin and not Samsung KIES.

For devices that are network-locked, users should be careful as there is no telling what [...]
