Get flash to fully experience Pearltrees
I'm new to android and was nervous using odin to flash a stock Samsung ICS to my new S2. It turned out to be fairly painless and have since update the original XXLPQ based rom with an up to date XXLPS rom. With both I noticed that it sometimes reboots ... but I'm not prompted enter a sim pincode so I'm thinking it's just the UI that is crashing not the underlying OS!? Anyway since this is official samsung and it's not 100% stable I'm thinking the open source roms cannot be any worse. Plus I always like the look of the ICS on the nexus.

The wait is almost over! Samsung has started rolling out Ice Cream Sandwich to the Galaxy S2 -- with Poles and Swedes among the first Europeans to get the update. Lucky them. The S2 ICS rollout isn't due to reach Blighty til 19 March, but we couldn't bear to wait that long, so we grabbed the firmware from a developer forum and flashed a rather fetching white Galaxy S2 we had lying around the office so we could take a closer look at Samsung's changes.
Like a relentless technological bulldozer, Android continues to steamroll all before it. Google's mobile operating system has undergone some radical changes during its relatively short lifespan, and the most recent iteration, 4.0 for those of you that like numbers, Ice Cream Sandwich for those who prefer daft codenames, is the most polished yet . The problem is, this latest flavour of Android is currently exclusive to Google's Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S phones. Samsung has announced that the Galaxy S2 will get Ice Cream Sandwich starting from next week, although it is down to the phone networks to decide exactly when that will happen. For those of you who simply cannot wait, salvation is at hand. This handy guide will show you how to install Ice Cream Sandwich on your beloved blower, allowing you to reap the benefits of enhanced speed and functionality, before it is made available through the auto-update section on your phone.
Dying for a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich on your Samsung Galaxy S2 ? As you wait for your phone to update to the latest version of Android, Samsung has prepared a handy guide to all things ICS. Cool Smart Phone has compiled Samung's Ice Cream Sandwich guide into a handy PDF . It's a bit dry, but does contain some useful hints, like making sure you've updated to Kies 2.0 ready for the update. It also provides a reminder that Ice Cream Sandwich doesn't support Flash and your wallpaper will disappear when you update.
