  10. Upgraded to this firmware a few weeks ago and ive come across a few problems and they are quite annoying. anytips on fixes would be appreciated. when i open some apps i they freeze up and close and say that they are not responding and end the app. this happens on the phone app, so i cannot dial phone numbers.

  11. Pradeep can u plz tell me when i connect my phone to kies it says “firmware update not supported” what should i do now?i dont wanna flash firmware i want to install it from kies!

  13. i updated to this new version ICS….but one problem, my contact list don’t open up properly like it takes forever to open up or it just crashes…

  14. Thanks for sharing this, worked great! One thing though, since installing this i have been receiving weird ads downloaded to my phone whihc never happened before i installed this.. ? in my notification area, it shows a + sign in green and when i check it, it s always an ad to download an app or something weird!

  15. HUGE BUG: cannot re-enable disabled apps:

    You can disable a system app, by going into System Settings -> Apps, tap on app, the click “Disable” button, but you cannot enable it back, because once you close the Settings app and clear it from memory, when you enter next time the System Settings -> Apps, IT DOES NOT DISPLAY ANY MORE THE DISABLED APPS, so you cannot tap on a disabled app and click the “Enable” button. This does not happen on a 4.0.3 build for HTC (which displays the disabled apps), so I suspect that it is a bug in the XXLPH version from Samsung.

  16. Hi Neela,
    I have two questions for you. Kindly answer both.

    1. Please guide me, which is the most stable and efficient gingerbread firmware for Samsung Galaxy S2 I9100, I am using I9100XWKL1 2.3.6 indian version but I am not satisfied with its performance?

    2. In which month, Official ICS firmware is expected to be available on Samsung Kies?


  17. It works great on my S2, but I have a little bit problem connecting back to my Kies via USB cable.
    It’s just say “Connecting..”

    Please advise.

  18. Also vibration is not working with the ringtone?
