I'm new to this forum and android too. Please be patient and help me to get out of the issue.
I'm in Bangladesh & bought my precious SGS2 I9100 from Samsung shop with warranty. Here we dont have any Carrier issue or jailbreaking or other problems.
My SGS2 Phone details are given below:
Build Info: Thu Jun 9 18:16:44 KST 2011
Android version 2.3.3
Baseband version I9100DDKE4
Kernel version 184.108.40.206-I9100XWKF3-CL276555 root@DELL101 #2
Build number GINGERBREAD.XWKF3
Now, i know there are so many firmware updates after my version. When i connect the phone to kies it says "this version of the device cannot be updated". I think i understand, its because of the region. but i'm with the same region of India and i saw on net India got new firmware updates via kies, but i'm stuck with my default one.
So please tell me what should i do to update to 2.3.4 or 2.3.5. I saw so many rooting and upgrading guides online. Can i choose from them and which firmware I'm confuse. And will it void my warranty if i update using ODIN (i read already that upgrading firmware doesn't require rooting). I'm willing to take the risk but please can you give the link for my stock firmware so that i can revert the OS if i messed up?
All the helps will be appreciated.
thanks and sorry for such a long post
