XXKP8 Firmware to Install Android 4.0 on Galaxy S2

Advertisement

Android-4.0-Galaxy-S2_thumb1

Update (March 24, 2012): This firmware, XXKP8, is pretty old now. Rather a new firmware, which is an official update too from Samsung Kies software is available, dubbed as XXLPQ. We would recommend you to install XXLPQ firmware to upgrade your Galaxy S2 i9100 to Ice Cream Sandwich.

Okay this is the best new year present you could get for yourself and your beloved S2 –  a brand new leak of an Android 4.0.3 firmware, XXKP8. Celebrating already? Lets see the installation and other stuff below.

Well, I’m installing it on my Galaxy S2 (i9100) and I hope this time Ice Cream Sandwich really has come to stay in my beloved S2. The Galaxy S already has a cool custom rom out for it but for S2, ICS has been a bad joke till now, even though we do have a decent enough ICS rom for S2, too.

I’ll update with how’s everything is inside the rom, like what’s good and what’s not so good and all that. So, check back again.

Btw, you can install from Android 2.3.x to XXKP8′s Android 4.0.3 directly without problem. And to go back to Android 2.3.5, download and install XXKH3 on your Galaxy S2.

Now, without bugging you much lets see the links and instructions now — after we’re done with usual warning and compatibility stuff, that is.

Warning!

The methods and procedures discussed here are considered risky and you should not attempt anything if you don’t know completely what it is. If any damage occurs to you or your device, we won’t be held liable — you only will be responsible, you’ve been warned!!!

Compatibility

This rom and the guide below is compatible only and only with Galaxy S2, model number i9100. It’s not compatible with any other device. Check your device’s model number in: Settings » About phone.

Pre-Installation tips:

  1. Backup your Apps and important data — bookmarks, contacts, SMS, APNs (internet settings), etc. This Android backup guide would help you.
  2. If you have Samsung’s PC software Kies installed, un-install it first because it may interrupt the flashing process.
  3. Drivers! — it’s important you’ve the proper drivers installed. Download links below: 32 bit (x86) Windows |   64-bit (x64) Windows

Installation video (of older Android 2.3.6 firmware XXKG1, just to help out newbies)

If you’re new to Odin, see this video first to get an idea of how firmware is installed using Odin. It’s of one old firmware (XXKG1) but very helpful to newbies, and you’ll definitely be more comfortable installing XXKP8 after watching this video. Then, follow the guide below.

Install XXKP8 Firmware on Galaxy S2 to get Android 4.0 ICS

  1. Download XXKP8 firmware. Filename: I9100XXKP8_I9100OXAKP8.rar. Size: 313 MB → Download Link. [password: samfirmware.com]
  2. Extract the downloaded file ‘I9100XXKP8_I9100OXAKP8.rar’ of XXKP8 firmware to get these 7 files:
    1. GT-I9100-MULTI-CSC-OXAKP8.tar.md5
    2. I9100_CODE_I9100XXKP8_CL42141_REV02_user_low_ship.tar.md5
    3. I9100_EFS_I9100XXKP8_CL42141_REV02_user_low_ship.tar.md5 [not to be used]
    4. I9100_KERNEL_I9100XXKP8_CL42141_REV02_user_low_ship.tar.md5 [not to be used]
    5. MODEM_I9100XXKP8_REV_02_CL1092599.tar.md5
    6. Odin3 v1.83.exe [For windows only. Double click to run this file when asked in step 5 below. Admin privileges will be required!]
    7. u1_02_20110310_emmc_EXT4.pit
  3. Disconnect your phone if it’s connected to PC.  Switch Off your phone. Wait for vibration to confirm complete switch off.
  4. Now, put the Galaxy S2 in Download Mode — press and hold these keys together: Volume Down + Home + Power. You’ll get an options screen. Press Volume Up now to go to download mode (which is also called Odin mode). This is required to install the XXKP8 (or any other firmware) using Odin PC Software.
  5. Open Odin (from step 3) — double click the Odin3 v1.83.exe.
  6. Connect your phone to PC now. You should get the message “Added! !” under the Odin’s message box in the bottom left. If you don’t get this message, then probably there is a problem with drivers. Make sure you’ve proper drivers installed. See point 3 above under pre-installation tips.
  7. Select these files in Odin at respective tabs:
    1. Click the PDA Tab, and select I9100_CODE_I9100XXKP8_CL42141_REV02_user_low_ship.tar.md5 (from step 2.2)
    2. Click the Phone Tab, and select MODEM_I9100XXKP8_REV_02_CL1092599.tar.md5 (from step 2.5)
    3. Click the CSC Tab, and select GT-I9100-MULTI-CSC-OXAKP8.tar.md5 (from step 2.1)
    4. Click the PIT tab, and select u1_02_20110310_emmc_EXT4.pit (from step 2.7)
  8. Important! On Odin, make sure Re-Partition, Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time checkboxes are selected. Do not touch any other checkbox or tab or anything, except as was required in step 8 above.
  9. Double check everything said in step 8 and 9 above. [And, do not use the files in step 2.3 and 2.4 anywhere in Odin]. This is my Odin’s screen while I flashed the XXKP8 on my Galaxy S2 — your Odin’s window should look real similar to this: odin-XXKP8_thumb2
  10. Now, hit the START button to start flashing of XXKP8 Android 4.0 firmware on your Galaxy S2. Flashing of XXKP8 would take some 3 mins 30 seconds and booting up of phone would take around 3 mins too. Your mileage may wary, btw. When the ICS has been installed by Odin on your phone, your phone will automatically reboot — and when you see the Samsung logo, you can safely unplug the cable. Plus, you’ll get a PASS (with green background) message in the left-most box at the very top of the Odin. If it’s red and with FAIL written over it, the process flashing process wasn’t successful. In case of FAIL, try everything again from step 4, making sure that you don’t break the process. On successful flashing you’ll get his sort of screen: Odin-XXKP8-process-Complete_thumb2
  11. When it has restarted, your Galaxy S2 will be running Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) with version being Android 4.0.3, build being XXKP8 and Samsung’s custom UI TouchWiz 4 atop it. Check out your Galaxy S2’s android version here: Settings » About Phone.
  12. (Optional, of course) If you found this guide useful, share it with others too on webpages, forums, your Facebook/twitter/Google+ pages, etc. That would be helping us grow too!

Share your thoughts, observations, complaints, problems (if any), etc in comments below. We’ll be glad to help you out. And do let us know if you spot anything too good so that we all know it.

    • http://www.theandroidsoul.com/ Kapil

      You mean you can’t open links from browser app? Pls clarify a bit more about your problem. Also, whether you’ve installed it already or looking to install it now.

      • Joy

        already installed but i noticed that i couldn’t open links posted for example on twitter , when i open some it gives me a black blank screen… :-(

        • http://www.theandroidsoul.com/ Kapil

          Hmm.. better install XXLPQ linked in first para above. XXLPQ is the officially released firmware from Samsung, while XXKP8 was a test firmware that got leaked on Internet.

          • Joy

            will try, thanks…

    • http://www.theandroidsoul.com/ Kapil

      Hey, install the XXLPQ firmware linked at the top (1st para).

  • milen

    I have installed the update – works fine for now – the only issue is when sending SMS the recipient receives them twice?

  • Capricorn3179

    hi i tried downloading but by mistake unplugged the phone while in progress, now my phone only show a mobile and computer icon with an exclamation mark….. pls help 

    • http://www.theandroidsoul.com/ Kapil

      Can you go to Download Mode? If yes, this is not a problem, flahs a firmware again. But this time, flash XXJVQ, which is latest good firmware, officially distributed by Samsung with its Kies software.

      • Are_mir9294

  • Ranindu777

    latest firm ware update will be released in april or may!!wait until it releases..
     

    • http://www.theandroidsoul.com/ Kapil

      Try the XXLPH firmware. It’s the latest one and far better than XXKP8 above.
      XXLPH Download and Instructions –www.theandroidsoul.com/xxlph/

  • Ranindu777

    Guys the best thing u can do is wait until Samsung release
    their latest firm ware update for android. Installing android is not equivalent
    to installing os in pcs. First android should be customized for the device. Then
    only you can get the best performance from your device. If you do this you will
    have to face for lot of problems. Please don’t install partially developed firm
    ware updates. This is one of them..

  • Fathurxmail13

    • http://www.theandroidsoul.com/ Kapil

      Yes, search for root xxkp8 here. Btw, I’d suggest you to try newer and far better build than this: xxlph. Search this site for that, we’ve already covered a guide and download links.

  • Masko

    Bugged wifi, doesnt run a lot of apps…and so on…loks good, starts to feel good but  doesnt stay that way for long :(

  • Jaccobninan

    What about the Kernel file that has been downloaded.

  • Grg1997

    Does this work with the i-777 or only I 9100

    • http://www.theandroidsoul.com/ Kapil

      Won’t work on i-777, it’s only for i9100.

  • Pinoyson

    Viber not working, the restart function is not working if you wish to restart the phone, software update failed to register.

  • Norman_zx28

    I have installed it,in version XXKH3 was success but,i can’t use the camera and the messages was completely dark…what’s the problem? can you please help me out?

    • http://www.theandroidsoul.com/ Kapil

      Try xxlpb, it’s much better than xxkp8. Search here to get download links and instructions.

  • Nath_o

    Lol @ all u impatient people….are your handsets now buggy and buttons not responding properly??! This is why u should just wait for the offcial updates!

  • Wkffelix

    mine is GTI9100G, can i update it by these procedures? 

    • http://www.theandroidsoul.com/ Kapil

      This is for i9100 only. So, I’m not sure whether it will work or not. Try this only if you are capable of flashing a i9100G firmware back, which would restore the phone back if anything bad happens.

  • Tommy

    I keep gettin a kernel panic upload mode! WTF????

    • http://www.theandroidsoul.com/ Kapil

      Retry …. it shouldn’t happen. And make sure you have i9100 model.

  • http://twitter.com/JaimeTayag Jaime Tayag

    I do not recommend this.  It’s still quite buggy.  I prefer the 2.3.6

  • Tariqrahim85

    My internet is not working not able to serach network for 3g and edge ????? plz helpppppppppppppppppp

  • Reachpraneeth

    installed in the same way that was mentioned here..In odin, it showed ‘Pass’..But while rebooting, there are so many errors happening…Ex: failed to mount cache  and snapshot of the issue looks similar to http://androidforums.com/samsung-galaxy-s2-international/484203-e-failed-mount-cache.html.
    Please help

    • Meee

      you probably forgot to turn off some kind of lagfix or something. try flash a 2.3 version en do a sd repartition, then turn back to 4.0..

  • Rebeckawoods

    i also followed this and right after i hit start in odin the program says not responding and my usb debugging is checked  and shawn there is steps at the top of this article to get gingerbread back just follow the steps you might be able to restore your back up then or maybe you backed it up in kies .

  • Shawn

    I followed this to the tee, and once rebooted, the Back button does not work, nor does the Search button, and the power button only works part of the time. It does not work right and I am unhappy. So I was just going to restore all the data I backed up, so I went to reboot into recovery mode, and there is NO OPTION to recover or restore to the previous state. I just want to take it back to the original rooted state. Please help.

  • Scott

    Im having issues going back. I took a CW backup before the update but because the update replaced the Kernel I cant restore it. I have tried using Odin and following the XXKP3 that people areu00a0suggesting, I can see the phone but after I click start it just sits there. Have tried it sevral times leaving it for hours and it does nothing. Any sugestions?nnThanks

    • Not Sure

      I just successfully restored via the method they offer, read the text, there is a link. It failed first time, making me thing I may have bricked it.nnBut I re-ran Odin, this time right-clicking, and choosing ‘run as administrator’, and it worked first time. Now on some other stock rom, and just about to root…nnThe wifi logo was better, but still no % for battery (when, oh when will they realise that we want a % reading for battery???).nnBut as I said before, no big deal at all.

      • Scott

        Yea tried that. Ive tried following the guide in the link sevral times its still not working just freezes. I have USB debug on and Unknown sources.n

      • Jose Adolfo Chancafe Oblitas

        Yes you are right i fixed the problem by flashing again but this time under admin status…thanks so much foru00a0clarifying that.u00a0

    • Myer

      You need to flash an old bootloader through Odin. Very easy, just google it.

  • Raisul

    ics installed just fine on my i9100 but settings keep crashing and phone keeps restarting. Any idea as to why that is?u00a0

  • Not Sure

    It worked first time.nnBut crashed twice in the first 10 mins whilst searching around the menus.nnAnd now not rooted? Bah! Can’t restore the backup!nnAlso, why are we here? This is no big deal really. If you are desperate for this, well you need to get out some more.nnGo outside – the graphics are great!

    This version XXKP8 based on 4.03 of ICS has some serious bugs such as forwarding all calls to voice mail. Bug prevents loading Samsung driver MTP. Pressing long on power button does not bring up options, it just shuts down the phone. I have not been able to root with Super One Click 2.3.1.0 so I will try another method.u00a0

    • Slackernewbie

      Is your phone a: GT-i9100? The ‘i’ seems to be important.nnMine is and did not forward all calls to voice mail and the long press on the power button works just fine. Don’t know about the other things you mentioned.

      • Dverwoert

        Yes it is the GT-I9100 as this is the International version. I will be going back to Gingerbread as I cannot root this version of ICS.

  • Mike Snelgrove

    What if it just sits on ‘SetupConnection’ in the message bit?n

  • Jose Adolfo Chancafe Oblitas

    Dear Kapil, thanks for posting this guide, it was very easy to make it done. So far i have found some bugs, one of them is thatu00a0whenu00a0i’m trying to enter to contacts sometimes it freeze and then it doesn’t response to the touch after a while it reacts and said calendar has stopped working. Another issue is that later when i try to go to my albums or music i got the message not enough memory. So far i would like to go back to stable rom 2.3.3 but i’m worry about the process, because i use PIT and checked in re-partition as it was mentioned in your post, i read that its not recommendable to check that option, i still haven’t done anything to my phone yet, i wanted to flash using odin the original firmware but not sure if i will break it, do you the new firmware and theu00a0re partitionu00a0that has been done, please let me know if i could go ahead with that process for getting back to 2.3.3. Thanks in advance for your time.

    Just another observation I also found the Face Unlock dosen’t work. You can go through the process of setting it up then you have to use a pin because face unlock fails.

    i have installed the ics 4.0.3 version on my phone just now. the features are working fine except the usb host feature of s2. Also the registration for software upgrade message that we get is not being completed as it displays an error for that. u00a0u00a0

    I have also found that if i use live wallpaper like beach HD sometimes the screen locks so it can’t be slide sideways and apps like Applications Contacts etc can’t be seen and a restart s required. Any ideas on this problem?

  • Big AL

    Upgraded from 2.3.6 and went without a hitch. Although I backed up all my apps etc using titanium backup I couldn’t restore because it had disappeared with quiet a few other apps so was unable to do a restore. Got most back using Polaris Office.nnsometimes when a app is started it shuts down and has to be restarted so OS a bit flaky.

    Sorry. I meant to say GT-I9100T.

  • Hanimalik

    This may be silly question. My GSII is model number GT-I1900T. Could I still flash it with this version of ICS?

    • Jack A Nisbet

      I just ran this on the GT-9100T, it worked without any problems (except the thing now loads up claiming to be a GT-9100)

      • Hanimalik
