Samsung Galaxy S II Ice Cream Sandwich beta ROM lands *UPDATE*

Samsung Galaxy S II Ice Cream Sandwich ROM released through Kies

Multiple Ice Cream Sandwich beta ROMs for the Galaxy S II have started to trickle out, according to YouMobile. Floodgates, however, are still not widely open, since the new ROM requires Samsung Kies software and can’t be installed over the air. What’s more, we’re not sure every Galaxy S II user can get its Android 4.0 fix — Kies software updates are known to target select markets so you may not see it just yet.

The 2 ROMs are the following:

  • I9100XXKP4 is based on Android 4.0.1 Build date: December, 20 2011
  • I9100XXKP8 is based on Android 4.0.3 Build date: December, 30 2011

It is said that most regions will get the KP8 ROM with Android ICS 4.0.3 directly. As far as we can tell, the new software slightly changes the UI, bringing new icons and new on/off toggle to the mix. If you’re in the lucky group and you also like to experiment with Kies updates, please let us know about any changes you notice.

UPDATE: These ICS sandwich updates are leaked developer builds (not official) and require manual intallations. Instructions and ROM downloads are here.

    Hy guys what the different between Samsung i9100 and i9100g?
    the two device have the same name !!!Samsung galaxy s2!!!!

    • Irfan Faiz Nazerollnizam

      The GT-9100G is the only model sold in Asian countries now. It has a different SoC (CPU/GPU combo) than the GT-9100. The G variant has Texas Instruments’ OMAP4 SoC instead of Samsung’s Exynos.

      Samsung has stated all Galaxy S II phones will get ICS.

    I have been doing as much research as possible for days now, but I just can’t find the the info I’m looking for.  I have the GT-I9100M, the Bell SGS2 and I was wondering if I could use the GT-I-9100 ROMs for it.  I think I’ve done the comparison and discovered that the basebands are the same, the hardware specs are the same, but I can’t figure out what the “M” is.  Would I be able to use these ROMs,
