Hi All, what I did before I update my phone to 4.0.3 was the back up my messages and contact number and first uninstalled all aps, formatted my onboard memory and then flash stock 2.3.4 rom with odin and then update to LPQ with odin after I booted the phone.
After that I have been using it for 2weeks without any problems, some apps and games don't work but no crashes that I did not cause myself, meaning messing around with files. Its very vast and smooth and if you want the best out of ICS donwload Nova Launcher, it give you the closest to ICS possible. Thanks.....

If ICS is officially released in ur area, just go to Samsung and tell them... moreI definetly know how to install ICS on my phone, and it would not be any difference if anyone from Samsung did the same thing!
Why be a blind fan and deny all the problems with this official, lpq, ICS "upgrade", are you afraid iPhone or Nokia fans will learn how bad your S2 actually is after this "upgrade"? S2 is a very expensive phone and buyers shoulds demand that Samsung properly test their official upgrades before their customers are encouraged to install it on their paid expensive phones! Samsung make good hardware inside their phones, well camera and sound-quality could be better on a this expensive phone, but their customer support have always been terrible, and software-upgrades are handled very bad where still not properly tested beta-fimwares are released as "official" "stable" releases.
Just because you atleast say you have no problems with this "upgrade" does not change the fact that very many less fanatic Samsung-fans have very many big problems with this, lpq, "upgrade"!
And what did Samsung-ICS really give us that we did not already have before, a different way to close recently used apps and a different, but not really much better, stock browser, and stereo, but reversed, recording in vidoecamera? ICS is still Android, so it is not a completely new OS, not iOS or Tizen or..., so there should not be any reason for these many backward incompatibility problems with apps and games for Android!

If ICS is officially released in ur area, just go to Samsung and tell them to reinstall it because clearly u r not capable to do so. But pls stop *itching in this column abt ur horrible experiences, u'r getting because of ur own fault!!
Definitely a bad update. I did factory reset before I upgrade it to ICS, but problems still occur. If I run HD games, it will suddenly crash. After awhile, the TW Launcher will also crash. They better fix this, whoever is responsible. We don't pay a hard-earned money for this. We deserve something better.
I upgrade my phone to ICS, and it's amazing.And I have no problem with that.
for those who have upgraded to ICS and are complaining, did you factory reset your phones before upgrading to ICS?
I just bought Samsung Galaxy SII two days ago. May be I'm too early to post about it. But from 2 days experience its the best phone anyone can go for.The Camera, battery life is just too awesome. I wud sincerely suggest people to go for this.
new_android_user, 25 Mar 2012Hey guys, I live in Canada, and I bought the S2 about a month ago. I was wondering if the OFFI... moreno official update for canada is still not available wait for it, will be out soon , very easy to update , just keeping for update in setting menu, select the update option when the phone shows tbat a update is available.
AnonD-252, 25 Mar 2012I have a 32 Gb sd-card in my S2 and no problem at all with that!Thanks TC, it's a big help;)

2. 'Yes, gonna buy galaxy s2'

'Oh wait, gonna read reviews fir... moreThe "update" to ICS made my S2 often lag worse than my old S1 ever did even before any lagfix, so the "update" made S2 a lot worse than it was on GB, and that is not a small problem! If users do not complain after a this bad "update" then Samsung will continue deliver bad and untested "updates"!
If Apple sent out an official update that actually made most iPhones a lot worse than before the update, then the users would be very angry and demand that Apple fix the problems with a new and properly tested update!
S2 is still the best phone for me, because Samsung made it so easy to install firmware using Odin, and I easily can go back to official GB ki8 that made my S2 "the best phone in the world today"! I will probably continue buying Samsung-phones as long as they stay so easy to root and as long as Odin can be used! But I am not a blind fan that accept anything from Samsung, or any company, and S2 is a very expensive phone so users should not have to accept being used as beta-testers when Samsung release these not properly tested official updates, and updates should not need a complete factory reset, even though not even a complete wipe and factory reset can fix all the problems with this official "update" from Samsung!
I upgraded my samsung s2 to ics a week ago in Nigeria, everything worked well, battery life increase a bit. If you want to enjoy upgrading your phone with ics, make sure you perform factory reset immediately on phone before using it by pressing *2767*3855#. This gives you best result on your phone. SG S2 is the best phone ever.
