Has there been a firmware fix update since ics was released?

Just wondered if they had done an update to iron out the bugs?

Hi Rob, are you able to detail what bugs you have been receiving? I had issues with the messaging and also error message telling me charging paused voltage too high but only when it was not plugged in charging. As always Vodafone blamed this on Water Damage

We no one of the problems is causes by the previouse firmware and apps that have been left on 

A Full rest can fix these if that does not work and it was working fine on Gingerbread it still is possible that the firmware did not down load completly 

some times a roll back and a re flase may fix this 

But yes if you can let us no what bugs you have ???

Android 4.0.4 has been released but not for the S2.

 

Also users were reporting signal issues on 4.0.4.

 

Like NDJ said, some "bugs" are got rid of by a full factory reset and then restoring apps to your phone.

 

Most bugs are in the apps though, as some are still not optimised for ICS (I've had a few rants about this so won't bore you!) depending on what apps you really need they may work better on Gingerbread, the roll-back procedure is quite simple.



Sometimes the simple answer is overlooked because it's technology that's complicated!

@JSK73

 

Just a heads-up... I have now updated the Rollback guide and included 2.3.3, 2.3.5 and ICS.

 

All Links work

 

Odin3

GB 2.3.3

GB 2.3.5

ICS 4.0.3

Re: Has there been a firmware fix update since ics was released?

Main problems i seem to be having are that the 'vibrate only' option does not work when i select it i get no vibration but vibrate works on full sound. Other problem is the screen freezing up etc. Ive already done the factory reset several times. It hsnt fixed the issue.
