    what is the size of the update…?

    isthat sufficient..?

      Hi Hagimaru,

      Try to get it install via KIES only, as any file missing during OTA could result in failure of upgrade and you will loose your costly 3G as well.

      @Mnnu the update for GT-I9100G will probably be released on a later date. Nothing official right now.

    This update is not working through Kies. Something is wrong. After downloading some files, it keeps crashing. Thought of taking it to service center tomorrow. Same issue for anyone?

    I might have tried 10 times in different systems.

      Try to update over the air go to settings> about device> software update> update

    I flashed “i9100XWLSD” and have been using it for some time now.
    This “i9100XWLSK” will be different from it? hmm..

    BTW, official jelly bean on S2 is really nice, go for it! Don’t even feel the need for any custom rom with it.
    Especially love the smart stay feature.

    Hey Mohit,
    I have that i9100 model , So is it available to us to download the new version?
    Does it requires our phone to be connected to PC, or it will be downloaded and installed just like any android app.

      Mohit

      (April 3, 2013 - 6:45 pm)

      Hi Vishal,

      Currently it is available only via KIES (PC Suite for Samsung) ; No OTA (Over The Air) available as yet.

        ok thanks

    Unfortunately it is just for i9100 model not i9100G.
