Download official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Firmware for Samsung Galaxy S II GT-I9100 now. Well, kinda… This is a leaked engineering version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Firmware for Samsung Galaxy S2. It is the very first Android 4.0 ICS XXKP1 firmware for SGS2 from Samsung. As the name apply, engineering build == beta == unstable == not for daily use because not everything is working. So this is a ROM for those wish to test and have a feel of Android 4.0 ICS on their Samsung Galaxy S2 looks like. Note – XXKP1 firmware is considered a custom ROM. So your SGS2 warranty will be voided once installed it. Anyway, not a big deal as you can always restore back to original stock firmware with Odin. Only install it if you know how to restore back…
Thanks samfirmware.com for the leaked Android 4.0 ICS XXKP1 firmware. I repacked it because there are bootloader and kernel that are not needed. And don’t want to confuse you all and might mess up with the leaked bootloader. Basically, the installation is the same as other firmware using Odin. Just it has 2 files instead of 1 file in XXKP1 firmware. Put these 2 file like below. Or refer this screenshot here.
- PDA = I9100_CODE_I9100XXKP1_CL16459_REV02_eng_mid_ship.tar.md5
- PHONE = MODEM_I9100XXKP1_REV_02_CL1085642.tar.md5
Well, I am not surprise that Quadrant score on XXKP1 Android 4.0.1 SGS2 firmware is low. It is still an engineering build. Looking forward to CyanogenMod team to come out ICS CM9 for SGS2 and official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Firmware for Samsung Galaxy S2 soon…
