How To Update Samsung Galaxy S II I9100 to KIES Gingerbread XXKG5 Release

Galaxy S2 LogoWith frequent beta updates if you are still wondering on with what version you need to update your phone then we will help you in picking the right version for your phone which is none other than XXKG5 Gingerbread 2.3.4 version which is the KIES release for the Galaxy S2 users in Poland and comes with the native Poland CSC. It’s interesting to see that still the Video talk integration hasn’t been included in this update as well. We can only hope that in the coming versions or say in the Android’s Gingerbread 2.3.5 version will surely come with the Gtalk’s video capability.

If you have not got the update or are not from the Poland or just in case if you wish to update with this KIES release then we will help you to update the firmware manually and not from the Odin as with the help of Odin sometimes users face issues like firmware not getting downloaded and host of other issues but with the help of Odin there are not much of issues which have been reported and also its very simple to update your phone by using the Odin flash tool which we will see in the due course of this article on how we can use it.

Last time we saw other Gingerbread versions like XXKG6 and other versions but this version of the XXKG5 is the KIES release and is an official release from the Samsung. The best part of this update is that it’s a Global update and not a Poland specific update. So, be it an Australia, US or India, each and every user of Galaxy S2 GT I9100 can proceed to update their device with this. Please make sure that you follow each and every instruction which is mentioned in this article or else there is a high probability that you may even brick the phone for which we should not be held responsible for.

Please note that this update is only meant for the phone with the model number Samsung Galaxy S2 GTI9100 and not for any other similar looking models or similar sounding models like Samsung Galaxy S I9000M or Captivate, Mesmerize or even other phones like Vibrant etc. If you still proceed to update the device then you may even end up bricking up your phone or some keys won’t be responding as per the functions which these keys are meant to do.

Note : You will have to reconfigure the APN settings after updating the firmware to access the data services and the services as all the Internet APN settings will be reset. You will have to contact your Service provider to get more info on the APN Settings. Not to forget also configure the MMS Settings. Also, we hold no responsibility if anything goes wrong which is an unlikely event if anything goes wrong.
