Samsung Galaxy S2 New LogoAfter Three successive ICS Android 4.0 series of updates, here comes one more for your rescue as this all new update of Ice Cream Sandwich XXLP6 Android 4.0.3. This update  ropes in various enhancements which are not major though there are many performance fixes which makes this firmware stable than all other previous builds. Please note that this is not an Official firmware version released by Samsung Electronics and also we don’t have an exact ETA on by when there will be an official update of ICS Android 4.0 for Galaxy S2 GT I9100.

Note: This update is not for the users of I9100G, the model number should be I9100 only which you can find by dialing *#1234# in your Samsung Galaxy S2 GT I9100.

Disclaimer: Please note that this process of firmware update is not recommended for the basic users and is only recommended for the advanced users. Also, we should not be held responsible for any damage happened to your device in any manner after applying this update.

Rooting Information:

  • Applying this firmware then it doesn’t mean that the phone is rooted,
  • Just in case if your S2 is already rooted, then after applying with this update the rooting access will be revoked,

We will soon be coming up with an article wherein it will help you to root your Samsung Galaxy S2 GT I9100 on XXLP6 Android 4.0.3 firmware version.

    For those who have issues on their samsung account on Galaxy S2 – ICS that says “processing failed”.
    The solution is to run/open your ‘Samsung Apps’ application just like Google Play Store, it will request for an update and update the program. after that, your problem is solved when logging in to your samsung account inside Galaxy S2.

  • James

    A quick FIX for PROCESS FAILED UPDATING. go into applications, and disable the updating app in ALL tab. that will get rid of the notifications on the top

    Dears,
    I’m still unable to fix GPS.

    The 1st time I use it, GPS icon blinks, then remains black.

    Still black from 2nd use, no lock at all.

    Tried all GPS test softwares in the Market, resetted AGPS a lot of time, nothing to do.

    I tried to install the old GPSfix, no changes.

    What to do ?

    Can anybody help?

    Thanks a lot!

    Why it takes so much time to wipe/factory reset and wipre partition. This process took full charge battery to end, and during process it shuts down. Now, i don’t know the process completed or not. Furthermore, I am also facing problem with the software registration. It fails to process. I was also feels some lagging in previous version ICS XXLP2. I am thinking of go back to official version 2.3.6. Please advise, Can I install 2.3.6 or not.

    Thanks

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Pradeep Neela

      yes you can go back to the version

      • haywire

        and what are the steps i should do to go back to 2.3.6??

    Neel,

    I have successfully upgraded to ICS. Now the problem is, it takes hours for wipe/factory reset and wipe partition cache. The cell become hot when processing and even it drain battery within 1:30 hour. Please give your suggestion in this concern

    Thanks

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Pradeep Neela

      battery will take some time to stabilize, may be 2 – 3 charge cycles!

  • Mohd

    hi,
    I hv updated with XXLP6 but I found the flwg :

    a. software update always there as I cannot get it updated, it always fail either i used 3G or wifi.

    b. 2G option does not exist anymore. You have to select data and automatically it goes 3G.

    c. background screen moving rather stays if you scroll home page horizontally.

    is there anyway to shorten the selection for 3G. we always have to go to settings > mobile > select data ? Cant this be
    done similar to wifi ?

    thanks anyway for the update.. Great improvement.

  • monster

    the restart button end up power off. it weird. any solution?

    Hi,

    Thanks in advance.

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Pradeep Neela

      yes you can apply the firmware.

  • Mir

    Earlier, I have install the ICS but not satisfied so now I am expecting better firmware. The only issue is, this unit hang several time at the time I receive the incoming call’s. Secondly, face unlock issue occurs many time and shutdown instantly. So Mr Pradeep, shall I believe this firmware would help resolve the earlier issue which I have mentioned above?

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Pradeep Neela

      there will be many new releases after this, we are waiting for a new one!

  • Pradeep Kumar

    Hey Pradeep I got updated to the XXLP6 4.0.3 successfully.Everything seems to be functioning great as of now comapred to the previous versions of ICE Cream.
    However i see the battery back up is not that great.
    I will post any bugs if found.

    Thanks again!!!! :)

  • Mohd

    hi,
    1st thing after update this release, I found that the 2G feature option in the mobile network option is gone. So we cant use 2G to get into the network. There still some issue with updating contact from backup. I cannot get into ‘software update’ option as everytime I try it says ‘failed’.

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Pradeep Neela

      you need to update manually!

  • Pinaki Chatterjee

    Hi Folks,

    Looks like I am the first to post review to this firmware update, here is my observations

    1.Initial language shows is not English, so make sure to change the Language while setting up the phone initially itself
    2.Software notification at the top does not go off as device failed to register for software update
    3. If clicked on Contact Icon phone screen hangs and crashes, I guess it was the same issue I find in the previous versions of ICS as well.
    4. Yet not been able to find a way to download all my contacts from the backup file created in the external SD
    5. Kies on PC finally recognized the phone and showing up the contents etc. So hopefully it will work with Kies

    Contacts is one of the most important things in the phone so If it keeps on creating issues will uninstall this and wait for another version till that I am happy with 2.3.6

    I appreciate all the efforts taken up by Androidadvices team and will eagerly wait for more stable version specially atleast contacts works.

    Cheers,

    Sir,
    I have updated almost all the updates from you. Every thing is fine for this
    But even after Wipe data/factory reset and also you need to select Wipe Cache partition

    My phone is not connecting to Market hence unable to get my applications installed.
    This was the problem with XXLP2 so I was using KPA but the same is with this new one.

    Please help

    Hi,

    In Odin when we enter the file for PIT, the check-box for for Re-Partition gets marked automatically. But your screen image above shows it unmarked. I updated from XXLP2 to XXLP6 yesterday but with Re-Partition marked with yes symbol and everything went smoothly.

    I would like to know from you about the differences (if there are any) in flashing with or without Re-Partition option marked.

    HI Neal,

    How much more stable is this update compared to XXLP2? I had video issues where the in-built video player stops unexpectedly very frequently. Unable to post comments on Facebook via the in-built web browser. Are these common problems and will they manifest themselves in this latest update too? Don;t wanna sound too fussy but just wanna know whats the progress of this update compared to the previous 3. thanks.
