Chekd samfirmware...ics has not been released in any part of the world for G version.
Do anyone have information when Samsung would release ics for G version????
Maxon, 04 Apr 2012From India, Im not getting an option for it on KiesXWLC2 was released for india users you can also check in samfirware.com where Samsung publish all the latest firmware for all phones. You can also download the firmware from there and install through kies, if not you can go to Samsung care and get the firmware upgraded.
The latter option is better, to go to Samsung care.
Killer, 29 Mar 2012My S2 I9100G screen will automatically turn on bright without touching it, then it turn to dar... morego to settings>dispay>brightness and turn off automatic brightness. this would solve the issue. after this you can adjust brightness by holding and dragging your finger over notification panel left and right.
upgraded mine s2g.
dont believe any romour.
good work samsung.
GSMArena should add (planned to upgrade to Android 4.0 ICS) to the OS specification as this variant of Galaxy S II will also get the ICS update for sure. It's just that Samsung didn't yet confirm the exact release date of the update for GT-I9100G.
AnonD-5405, 30 Mar 2012I too faced the same booting screen display problem since yesterday after updating.I rebooted ... moreSame problem with my SGW after the update it just got stuck in odin mode, can't connect it to Kies anymore, didn't have this problem when i update from 2.3.5 to 2.3.6 during january, sent it back to service centre last week, hopefully they got it fix by end of this week, sigh. Samsung better look into this issue.

Hey i recently got to know tht i have the g version of the s2 ..ive overclocked it using antutu cpu control.. ive run all the benchmarks and they're almost identical except for nenamark 2 for which i get 33 fps instead of 46 of the s2 .. how is this device inferior to the non g other than the custom roms ??
