    My New Galaxy S2G

    Recently i purchased a samsung galaxy s2 (Gt-I9100G)
    it made in china by Samsung "written in french"
    I'm a new user for Samsung phones and Android system
    its data is:
    ================

    PHONE : I9100GDZKH5
    CSC : I9100GOJPKG7
    Build Info : Mon Aug 29 14:04:52 KST 2011
    Android Version : 2.3.4 Ginger bread
    ================
    Is there is an official update for this phone supporting Arabic language ??
    How and where can I find these official update?
    How can I choose my appropriate update to my phone?
    How can I install update in my phone?
    How can I know is my phone rooted or not?
    Is that necessary to root my device?
    What is KERNEL ?
    What is the meaning of "Dead phone", and how can I avoid this?
    ================
    When i connect my phone to computer with Kies program this message shown up
    " Your device doesn't support software upgrading via kies "
    "Current firmware version : PDA:KH8 / PHONE:KH5 / CSC:KG7 (XEF)"
    Why this message appear and why i can't update through kies?
    what are the alternative programs can I use it?
    ================

    all versions or any update (united states,United Kingdom, United Arab emirates) supporting Arabic (read & write) or must be an Arabic version " i need English interface and all thing is in English but reading and writing Arabic".
    what is the difference between firmware update( KSA, KSA (JED), Egypt, and UAE).


    Is product Code important for update firmware?
    and if it is that's meaning that i can't download any firmware expect France firmware


    What is Stock ROM for my phone and how can i know it and where can i download it?

    Is that important to install kernel beside firmware update and what is its benefit? how can i choose a appropriate one to my phone?




    is there problem to install this rom in my phone (for example)

    Egypt EGY – I9100GJPLC1/I9100GOJPLC1/I9100GXXKL4/I9100GJPLC1
    ----------------------------------------------------- WHAT THES CODES REFER TO?????
    Version: Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread

    or any on of other firmware without looking at my current firmware (france as i mentioned up)

    ===============================
    Very sorry for Elongation
    I hope a complete answer to my questions
    Thanks again

    Why don't you look at the Wanam Roms.
    This one is the most recent: http://wanamlite.com/2012/05/25/%D8%...s-v11-7-xwlpd/

    Oops!! forget that, you have a I9100G so no updates to ICS yet.

    EDIT: Yes you can install the Egypt Rom you mention.

    This link shows you how and has the link for the Odin download.

    You can install any I9100G firmware to your phone, but you want one that supports Arabic script and right to left scrolling.
    If you go to the sammobile.com site and select:
    Smartphone > Android > I9100G
    You will then get the region choices.
    Choose your region then look for firmware from the country of your choice.

    If you want to stay with the firmware region you already have, then under the CSC heading look for I9100G XEFxxx
    At the moment the xxx on your phone is KG7, so you are looking for a newer version.

    But it is not important to stay with XEF (this is for France so may not be the best language choice for you)

    The Firmware for Egypt that you found would work perfectly well and not affect your warranty.

    You can install the Egypt or Saudi firmware.
    1. Connect to Kies and install drivers.
    2. Download firmware from Sammobile, and unzip to get a tar file
    3. Install Odin
    4. Put tar file into PDA (do not touch any other boxes)
    5. Put phone into USB debugging mode.
    6. Turn off phone and put into download mode.
    7. Connect to computer and make sure box in Odin turns yellow.
    8. Start

    When you install Kies on your PC, the first time you connect your phone the drivers will be installed automatically. You need these drivers so that Odin will recognise your phone.
    Yes, the file you have is OK for S2. Just put the .tar.md5 file into PDA section of Odin, wait for yellow box and press start.
