about ICS firmware for I9100G:
i was research many forums & do experiment since last week ive found the only STABLE firmware is from INDIA region.samsung india do a hard work to build their firmware & also fixed many bugs.other samsung country just copy & edit few things & cannot fix bugs,thats why it have problem such as still hang,gps lock issue & battery drain fast.
option u can download ICS firmware from India.visit sammobile.com/firmware & install it via Odin software.after 3 days ive tested,phone running very smooth.try it to believe it.gudluck!
patrick osunde, 10 Jun 2012Why is the screen always hot and the battery does not last long. I must confess this is the b... moreu can adjust brightness about 50% via manually in setting & DONT set to AUTO.u also need download BATTERY REPAIR on blackmart.make sure battery power left is 1%.run app & connect to charger.dont do anything on ur phone due to app will repair ur cell battery,it take around 3 hours to complete repair.try it to believe it.
Except 687MB RAM issue, ICS update is worth to do it.. it has resolved camera, music on handfree hanging problems...

Hey Guys Samsung is cheated us the g version s2 is a very bad phone.daily 2 or more time hang and restart automaticilly..so pls dont buy this phone its my requist...
I upgraded days ago to ICS.
No slowness, no more hangs, long battery life.
No problems at all.
Guys please read reviews before upgrading to ICS. I just checked it on my friend's phone. I found it to be really very slow which I would not have liked for a smartphone. I will wait for another update from Samsung. If you need the facelock feature in Gingerbread, try Facelock for apps pro in Google Play. It is a paid app but works really well. There is a trial version also.
After upgrade to ICS, my phone cannot connect to wifi eventhought router at beside phone.
If anyone get an idea how to downgrade Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich to Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread official version???????
Anyone can help me???
Is there any idea how to downgrade to Gingerbread back?
Can i Upgrate to 4 and work with no problem in i9100G ?
i had i9100 worked great with 4 version of android
I choose Gingerbread version cause it is more durable than Ice cream sandwich that only care about unique display.... Anyone agree this??
Im become hate to this phone after upgrading to ICS, cause it lag while playing game or serve internet. But 1 thing only that I like is Animation while rotating the screen :|
after ics update ..aaps n game shw unfourntley stop..wt the hell.any one face ths problem..share ur reviews after ics update.
louis, 07 Jun 2012What's mean OTA?OTA means over the air. In this case you upgrade your phone via Settings>>About Phone>>Software Update>>Update (which will check for updates and allow you to directly download and install it on the phone). The update is hosted in the air and hence called OTA.
For those who are complaining contact bugs, ram decreased and etc, u can actually just root your phone to the latest CM9 nightly build. It's quite stable now eventhough it's still in early stage.
