I bought my my phone from a friend of a friend, with just two months, but he must have done something to the phone... Today I installed the official samsung jb rom, with odin, and kies says it is updated to the last firmware, so recognises the jb rom... The only problem is that my phone asked for the sim unlock code... What shoould I do? Thanks in advance!!!

I was so sick of waiting that i used the firmware and instructions on sammobile to flash my S2 with the Spain firmware. (i am from belguim)

Following the instructions on sammobile, this went without any problems, in app. 30 minutes or so.
To my suprise, the backup that i made before (contacts pictures settings...) was not needed afterwards, when the firmware flash was done and the phone restarted, everything was still in there, only the android version changed.
I am mad at myself for not having done this before, Jelly bean is a real big improvement. so fast and snappy and smooth, i would never go back to the previous version.
Just use the Spain firmware on sammobile and flash it with Odin following the instructions and you will be fine. Just wanted to let you guys know that it is extremely simple and quick.
