GS2 is not designed to be upgraded to kitkat, so don't do it, you will just ruin your phone.
I heard the best OS for GS2 is only jelly bean version! can someone please confirm that?

many thanks

how can I choose to only upgrade to ICS?
the system gives me the latest upgrade available which would be JB I think.
can I select which one I want? from where?

Many thanks

Your reply will be much appreciated,
so is it worth upgrading from ginger bread to jelly bean?
also why suddenly my phone developed a drain battery symptoms, I deleted everything I downloaded recently still the same, new battery also the same. It takes hours to get fully charged!! why is that?

any help would be much appreciated, I love GS2 and I still think one of the best phone ever produced by Samsung.

even the latest phone doesn't excite me as much.

so please advice me how I can resolve the above matter.
Also to say my internal memory is almost full, could that have anything to do with this problem?

Fantastic device. Very nice design that looks great even after years since release. Shame the motherboard dies after a few years. I wanted to buy a used one and ran into tens of S2's with dead motherboard.

> In reply to kINgtArO @ 2014-07-18 13:57 from fsTy - click to readThe issue will be due to the charger port. I had the same problem just before the phone would no longer charge at all.
I tried installing a new charger prot (for an S2 plus as was cheaper and more easily available than i9100 charging port) but that didn't work. Problem fixed when i got hold of a genuine i9100 charger port.
Now phone charges and is recognised by pc and no fake charging/connected to pc issues anymore
