      XXKP1 is pretty old now and new firmwares are available from Samsung, the latest and best of which is XXLPB. So, I would suggest you to install that — http://www.theandroidsoul.com/xxlpb-galaxy-s2/

      • Rajendra samant

        no i am little conservative now and go ahead with this only if you can help to make my phone better….

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

          Hey, XXKP1 was most worst beta rom ever. Install XXLPB, or CM9, you’ll like it way better than KP1.

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

      Shouldn’t take more than 5 mins…. so retry. Btw, new firmware is available, named xxlp6, which is much better than this one. Try that. Search for it here, we’ve got guide and download links covered.

    • Tihien27

      You cannot fix it unless you upgrade to new version. make sure your phone is samsung galaxy s 2 is GT-I9100 not GT-I9100G.

      Cannot, all upgrade are only for GT-I9100. No upgrade for GT-I9100G at the moment.

  • Rohitpuraswani

    internet is nt working in 4.0 ics on samsung galaxy s2, plzzzzzz help

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

      It’s buggy. Not suitable for daily use. Go back to Android 2.3. Search for xxjh3 here and install that.

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

      Err… search for xxkh3.

  • Rohitpuraswani

    vibration is not workin after this install, plzzzz help!!!

  • Ollie Barbor

    Do not install this. XXKP2 just got released today which has fixed most of glitches/bugs in XXKP1.

    If Kapil would be kind enough to do some research and post how to install XXKP2 I’m sure the community of Androidsoul would love it! :’)

  • http://twitter.com/Dope415 Daddy

    It seems as there is no way to go back to GB because Odin does not recognize the phone anymore

    • Ollie Barbor

      Tick or untick your “Usb Debugging” on your phone. 
      Can’t remember off the top of my head but you need it ticked or unticked for ODin to work. Change the settings of your USB debugging and try again. :)

  • Hamid1129

    hi
    i installed successfully, but it’s not stable , and have a huge bugs collection, many exceptions throws through simply daily use of phone, how can i downgrade to my previews version?
    is it possible to use odin with I9100JPKJ2 md5 file?

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

      Yes you can go back to firmware of your choice, including jpkkj2, using Odin.

      If nothing else, search for xxkh3 here and install that.

  • Dverwoert

    Internet 3G connection not working, problem with APN setup (cannot write to APN)
    wireless is working but many problems with apps not able to run. Face recognition is working fairly well but needs good lighting to function. Do not recommend this version of ICS for daily use. Not having internet connection is a serious if not fatal flaw in this release.  
      

  • Freehorn3000

    hi
    please help

    i can not turn on wireless and search in web

    • Ollie Barbor

      You can’t just turn on the WiFi by dragging down the notification bar and clicking the WiFi icon. You have to actually go into setting and turn WiFi on manually. Once you have done that it should work fine. 
      4.0.3 has just been announced so i would wait until that comes out instead of installing this ROM.

  • Ollie Barbor

    Pretty good ROM. :)
    Still many things that don’t work though. Wouldn’t recommend installing if you’re going to be using this daily but it’s still pretty awesome to install and mess around with for a couple of hours.

    • Raymond Keus

      Can you tell me wat isnot working?

  • Ben_hoeke

    Hello Kapil, 

    I tried the same tutorial but I was not able to install the screenshot app and neither I was able to run any app properly, Everything was just saying “Force Close”. 

    Is there any solution for that ?

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

      Screenshot can be taken directly. Just press Vol Down and Power key together. I got force closes too, btw. It’s buggy, no doubt.

  • Edan Davey

    My thoughts: TouchWiz pretty much ruins ICS

  • Mike

    is there a root method for this firmware yet ?
