  1. hmmm..2.3.6? so it only available for stock firmware? i tries to open my kies but it does not allow me to upgrade.am from Philippines
    am still using custom rom checkrom 2.3.5
    in your own opinion which do you prefer?
    pls advice. thanks

  2. Hi Jayce,

    Am currently on XXKI4 – and just updated the DXKL3 firmware via Odin.
    Since the CSC on XXKI4 is “LCKL2” – will it have negative impact on this firmware?
    I don’t want to wipe the data off my phone – but if its neccessary I’ll do just that…..
    So far… things seems normal to me… however the DXKL3 firmware does have the “LCKL2” CSC….. not sure if there’ll be compatibility issues

    Thanks

      • Hi Jayce,

        Thanks for the reply…. maybe I’ve mistaken.. I always have this impression that the firmware and CSC comes as a set.. ie go hand in hand.
        But if you’re using the Europe CSC on an Asia firmware for a while now…. think it should be just fine..

        Cheers!

  3. hi Jayce ,
    well ive been talking to my friend … well he said tat if we run a custom rom we r actually giving information about us to the developer of tat rom .. is tat true ?? also do samsung service centres accept phones with custom roms … well the reason im asking this is the service centre accepted my phone while it was running checkrom !!!
    cheers !!! 🙂

  4. Hello Jayce,

    Thanks for this information. I also upgraded to XXKI4 when it came out. So am wondering other than easier with warranty issues at samsung service centre.. is there any other reason to use our own region firmware (more stable, etc?)

  5. I see. So if i flash via odin to DXKL3, will it do i need to wipe cache and data (factory reset?? ) or it doesnt matter usually?

    Thanks again.

  6. hello Jayce,

    i am presently running stock firmware 2.3.3. and wanted to upgrade to this 2.3.6 XWKL1…is it possible to flash this with odin insted of using kies? Also after the upgrade , to root it back which CF Root should i use?

  7. Yeah, thanks for the info. I already updated mine to 2.3.6 just now after desperately checking for it everyday. I’m from Philippines btw and I was expecting that there will be a rotation animation for this one…but I’m not disappointed since it has improvements in battery life and some additional UI effects. This is a good christmas and new year gift from samsung. Cheers!

  8. would you recommend this if im already on
    XWKK5
    Android 2.3.6

    This package has: PDA: XWKK5| Modem/phone: XXKI3| CSC: XEUKH2??

    please advise. Thanks!

  9. Hi all,

    Some observation on DXKL3

    Was from XXKI4 and then upgraded to DXKL3.
    I would say, battery life took a slight hit – other than that I don’t see any visible change.
    I’m not saying that battery is bad – especially if you’re coming from 2.3.3 – you’ll immediately notice the improved battery performance.

    I don’t need the Asia language – therefore went back to XXK14….. am waiting for ICS to be release.

    • Hey SG Guy,

      I reverted back to DXKL3 from XXKI4 just this morning and initial looks of it, it looks true.. battery seems to drain slightly faster (3 – 4 %) more than XXKI4 and battery seems ‘hotter’ during normal use – i am using a battery widget as a gauge (29 degrees when screen is on for the first time, and 32 vs 36 (XXKI4 vs DXKL3).

      Well its just the first day for me and had to do some reconfiguration of settings since i did a factory reset as well to solve other issues so maybe that contributed to the battery drain.. Will see how this goes and make another comparison soon.

      • Hi Clement, thanks for the feedback. please keep me posted on your observation.

        The battery drain may be temporary- may want to go back to DXKL3

        • Hi SG Guy.

          Hmm just a quick Day one observation post for DXKL3

          2015 charged to full 100%
          2359 light surfing, playing a quick 20 min game dropped to 91%

          Next day
          0700 checked and it had dropped to 85% (usually in the night it usually drops only 2 %)
          1200 light surfing, IM , checking and replying emails 67%
          1700 light surfing, IM , checking and replying emails 52%
          2000 light surfing, IM , 42%
          2230 25%

          Since it is not possible to do exactly the same thing everyday.. Will test out for another week and see how it goes. Overall i think battery life is definitely better than 2.3.4/2.3.5. However comparing to XXKI4 it seems to drain slightly faster, typically it should be 10-15% more than what it should be. But perhaps on those days i was doing less stuff.

          Hope this gives you and others a rough guide 🙂

          • Hello SG Guy,

            After close to a week of using DXKL3, i feel is that the battery life is comparable with XXKI4, overall i feel it drains slightly faster (typically 4 – 6 % more depending on repeated usage) but to me i feel it is acceptable. 🙂

  20. hi jayce………….I have official bvkg3 on my sgs2 , 2.3.5 from orange Uk and it’s official now……………..how can I update it to 2.3.6 because kies does not show any update available as yet ?

  21. Hi Jayce, I own a galaxy S2 and from India with an android version of 2.3.4,

    Baseband version: I9100XXKG6

    When i connect through KIES it tells me that “Your device does not support Software Upgrading through Kies”. However i understand there is a official version release (2.3.6)

    How can i upgrade the official firmware in my phone??

  22. Hi Jayce,

    I am using Galaxy S2 stock in India. 4 days ago it could not detect the service provider. I put in the flight mode. After that its stuck in flight mode. Have tried switching off. Removed the battery for few hours. Have even tried doing a factory reset. No luck.
    Surprisingly it is not showing even IMEI details. Please help

  23. Jayce,

    I dont have broadband in home, hence i wanna upgrade firmware in Office laptop in office. But seems somewhere its port or server is blocked. Even kies doesn’t show up latest version update.

    Any knowledge, what link or port kies uses to connect to samsung server?? Any way to sort it out??

    Please do share…that will be helpful, i am eager to upgrade my firmware in s2.

    Regards

  24. jaycee,

    currently my SGS 2 have audio problem. when im using the handsfree, the voice i heard from the earpiece are too low. very hard to hear when calling someone eventhough im using original handsfree provided in the box. but i can hear loudly when playing music.

    also, when i make normal call (wihout hndsfree), my friends complaining my voice are too low and i need to repeat and talk loudly to make them hear me.

    did android already have firmware update that can solve this problem?

    hope you can show me how to solve this problem.

    regards

  25. Updated to this new firmware for 9100G. But it got hang problem eg receive SMS, typing SMS, run the camera etc intermittently. Need to take out the battery to reset.

    Does anyone else have this problem?

  26. Hey guys! Just wondering…I’m from the Philippines and I just connected my S2 to Kies for the first time to hopefully update my firmware to 2.3.6., because I heard that the update is already available here. How come Kies tells me that I have the current version? XXKI1 or XWKI4 and I’m on 2.3.4. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance! 🙂

  27. I tried to upgrade my Samsung S2 GT9100 to android 2.3.6 but when I open my Kies it say up-to-date which is 2.3.4. How can I upgrade to the latest version?

  28. Hi Jayce,

    I have a SG S2 with firmware version of 2.3.4, and would like to update it with the latest firmware version of 2.3.6

    If i update the official firmware using Odin will Kies detect any firware upgrades in future.

    Thanks in advance

  29. Hai jayce, Hi upgraded to 2.3.6, but I am not like the over all UI, the fonts are little bit blurred. I reverted to 2.3.5 XXKI3, which is great I think. I suggest all users to install 2.3.5 XXKI3. Can you tell me when will be the android 4.0 for the galaxy s2 launch?

  30. Hi Jayce,

    I upgraded my s2 firmware to 2.3.6 through my mobile itself.
    After that whenever i connect to my PC , the usb is not getting detected.
    I tried installin again both kies as well as samsung latest usb drivers.
    Can you help me on this.

    • hi just found this on Google an am sharing this.
      This helped me to connect to my PC

      Resolution
      1. Unplug the USB cable
      2. On the cell phone, dial the following number: *#7284# Once the last # is hit, the PhoneUtil application is launched. Choose USB -> Modem and then USB -> PDA mode. The good mode should be PDA. Even if the mode is PDA, switch to Modem and then back to PDA.
      3. Plug the USB cable.

  31. please, i wanted to gingerbread 2.3.6 for galaxy s2 (GT-I9100G). Now, my phone can’t use. Display show is phone logo and computer logo. I wanted to link.

  32. Hi Jayce, i tried to update my GT-9100G with the latest firmware 2.3.6 (as the kies detected), but each time will ended with error. So i decided to download the firmware from sammobile and flash manually. Myquestion is: after i downloaded and decompressed the file, only 1 .md5.tar file, so mind teach me how to flash using odin? Thank you

  33. Got my sgs2 firmware upgrade through kies took me 2 hours due to poor internet speed. So wats new in 2.3.6 actually it solved one of the most discussed problems of sgs2 that is over heating and battery drain.
    didn’t find any mirror crackling updates just a few minor tweaks
    1. Extra poversaving Option
    2. Home screen can run on continuous loop
    3. Wifi option improved
    4. Minor changes to notification bar
    5. Swype key pads upgraded
    6. New options added in accessibility
    7. ofcourse how can one forget the blue line which appears at the end of scroll

      • YES IT IS STILL WORKING. no problems at all.
        one more new thing when we connect it to kies on pc we can use the phone explore it or even use gallery since befor we had to keep the phone away while using kies with pc. no moreannoying screen saying do not exit this screen. so all in all except making call while connected to kies we can do pretty much everything

  34. Hi Jayce,
    See you really the man here. thanks for having sucha a cool forum. i have a coupla questions here so please bear with me,
    1. i have only been updating my phone via kies havent done any rooting stuff (to be honest dont really understand it all) if i use odin will if change my root thingy?
    2. i noticed to new leaked ICS does kies have it yet or do i have to use odin and more importantly is it worth installing right now? thanks dude.

    • 1. Odin does not change your root access unless you install kernel that provide root access.
      2. No ICS from Kies yet. You can install leaked beta version with Odin. But not for daily use as not everything is working now.

  35. Jayce,

    my Samsung galaxy s2 GT-I9100 has 2.3.5 version and i would like to update firmware to 2.3.6 official firmware using Kies but it keeps telling that i have the latest firmware installed. i dialled *#1234# . The result:

  36. Dear Jayce,

    Now, I have SGS 2 (GT-I9100)
    Android Version : 2.3.3
    Baseband Version : I9100XXKG5
    Kernel Version : 2.6.35.7-I9100JPKH1-CL453266 root@DELL140#2
    Build Number : GINGERBREAD.JPKH1

    Now how can i get your said version on my SGS 2

    I am in UAE but i wan to use Indian version because, my SGS 2 doesn’t shows me Indian languages.
    I checked in Language and keyboard but there is no HINDI language listed.

    Please help me.

    Thanks.

  48. Hi, I’ve used ODIN to sucessfully put on various Kernels on the Samsung GT-I9100, root phone etc.. but when I came to downgrade my 02 XWKJ1 ROM to generic XWKE1 or XWKE2 ROMS, the firmware is applied but when the phone reboots, I’m prompted for a passowrd (have tried intratech@XDA just in case but no joy)

  49. Hi Jayce, no (there’s no SIM in the phone at the moment), this is a password to load Android (comes up just after th einitial Samsung splash screen)

  50. Hi Jayce,

    I found the answer on xda forums – it’s to do with security applications on the phone (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1290266&highlight=password+at+boot)

    Btw the password thing- it happens when you had previously installed security apps. Like any antivirus or any password protection app. Like -‘ app. Protector pro.’ And these passwords are not actually harmful as they are just for security measures and when you input incorrect password 4-5 times they will say that going through will format your SD card but they actually don’t do anything when you go through.

  51. hey Jayce,

    I’ve just updated my GS2 to DXKL3 and now I can’t send SMS and go on the internet through the browser. Receiving SMS and using the internet via application like facebook, whatsapp works just fine. Have no idea what went wrong.

    Please help!! Thanks!

  52. Hello Jayce,

    How do I install the new firmware update? From Kies on my pc or I can just search for the update on my phone by using the Software update option in the setting? Also I would like to ask if charging from my Mac/PC better than charging from the AC supply or vice versa. I’ve been using my Mac/PC to charge my phone and I’ve had the poor battery issue since. What do you suggest? Thanks.

  53. hi, here my version

  54. jayce the battery life was better on the xwki4 than the latest xwklp 2.3.6. 🙁
    i just wanna know which rom are you using or simply prefer as the best one to use ??

  55. Hi Jayce…. please kindly if you could help, i have this prob with my frone bought from malaysia

    it’s really annoying me, and i just bought it new
    how could i fix this prob?? please help

  56. i did try to upgrade with the samsung Kies, and factory reset it. before i upgrade it. it seems still have the same prob.
    when ever i left my phone and sleep but when i wake up the screen just freeze or turn off.

  69. Hi Jayce,

    my unit is samsung galaxy s2. Can i change from gingerbread to ice cream? Will it void my warranty? I’m from Philippines.

    Thanks in advance.

    • Hi jeff, yes you can. There should be official ICS firmware for Philippines now. Install official firmware with Samsung Kies won’t void warranty.

  70. Hi Jayce,

    my S2 battery always shows 100% and when I reboot it shows an error msg with the battery and a attention icon with the temperature bar type (not sure what it is). I am able to switch it on again only if I connect to the usb or charger. How can I get this fixed.

    Thanks in advance

  73. Hi Mr Jayce, I wanted to downgrade from ICS to this firmware cause I didn’t really liked it. So I wiped data and cache and I installed via odin but at the first try, it says, “Fail!” So I tried flashing it again and now it’s stuck at the setupconnection. May I know what’s the problem? TKs!:)
