How To Update Samsung Galaxy S2 I9100 to Gingerbread XWKE2 2.3.3 Firmware

So, as you can see that the Green colored bar will be shown which will mean that the firmware has been successfully flashed in your Galaxy S2 device. Since there is a cache memory of the previous firmware gets stored in the device, you will have to clear the same and which can be done by performing the full reset by dialing the short code *2767*3855# and then you will see that all the cache is cleared successfully. To check that version has been successfully updated or not you will have to type in the code as “*#1234#”.

Do, let us know if you encounter with any of the problems as we will ensure that all problems are solved. Please note that since you have updated your firmware, all the APN Settings will be cleared. So, to access all the data services / MMS / Internet, you will have to get the Internet settings from from your Service provider.

  9. Anyone please help me here. Still not got resolved.

    I tried flashing Samsung Galaxy S II I9100 to Gingerbread XWKE7 2.3.3 using http://androidadvices.com/how-to-update-samsung-galaxy-s-ii-i9100-to-gingerbread-xwke7-2-3-3-firmware/ link.

    After done successfully, my About Phone reads like this:
    Is it correct and is it updated correctly? Why is Baseband shows KE4 instead of KE7? :(

    I am so much confused.

    Android Version 2.3.3
    Baseband Version I900XXKE4 (WHY IS THIS BEING DIFFERENT?)
    Kernel Version 2.6.35.7-I900XWKE7-CL215725
    Build Number Gingerbread.XWKE7

  10. Please help.

    Should I follow the instruction in the below link and do a fresh re-flashing again?
    http://androidadvices.com/how-to-update-samsung-galaxy-s-ii-i9100-to-gingerbread-xwke7-2-3-3-firmware/

    Just curious as to why there is different of version number in Baseband, Kernal and Build number? Should that not be all same? Please advice.

  11. Hi Neal,

    In my About phone section, the reading goes like this:
    Android Version 2.3.3
    Baseband Version I900XXKE7
    Kernel Version 2.6.35.7-I900XWKF3-CL276555
    Build Number Gingerbread.XWKF3

    Is it not correctly updated? Should I update using your firmware mentioned here?
    Why is there difference in Baseband version and Build number and Kernel version. Should this be all reflecting same as KE7?

    Please help.

    Should a re-format solve this?

  12. Thank God. I followed your other thread where it stated how to hard reset. Tried plenty of time. At last got succeeded. Connected my Kies and it stated I have an update. I updated. My present version reads like this:

    Any idea why there is a different in baseband and build number?

    Android Version
    2.3.3
    Baseband Version
    I900XXKE7
    Kernel Version
    2.6.35.7-I900XWKF3-CL276555
    Build Number
    Gingerbread.XWKF3
