Ice Cream Sandwich on S2? - Page 2. 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. So I was considering CM9, though I'm just getting confident of odin - I'm not sure if I'm up to rooting just yet. Looks good and seems to be very stable AND can be installed via odin - I think? Has anybody here tried it yet? One last question for those more experienced, does the version I have currently installed (and XXLPS kernel in my case) have any bearing on the choice of roms I can flash?
