I’m new with Android or for any other related to Android 7 accessing the Net through a smartphone.
I have SGS2 with current details displaying perpetually on vehicle dock :-

Android version: 2.3.3

Kernel version: 2.6.35.7-I9100XWKF3-CL276555

Build number: Gingerbread .XWKF3

Thus, can anyone kindly advise & confirm this status as it now stands lease? should i need to call the support in Holland where I’m at or you have the answer saving me time and bother calling Samsung, much appreciated, thanks.

I received my sgs2 brand new at the beginning of sep 2011, and it came with KE7 installed already. Nevertheless, the pink spot is painfully present! Very disappointing.

I supposedly updated but am showing Gingerbread.BVKH2
Where does this fit, in the scheme of things?

I’m not an expert (I suggest referring to the guys at XDA dev), but the letters correspond to a date. K “might” be the year, but the letter proceeding the K is the month. The number following is the build release for that month. Not all releases come through Kies; they’re largely developer releases.
I believe KH would be a September release. But I defer to the XDA guys for those details…

I just bought my Samsung Galaxy S2 last week and so happy about it. I’ve done some flashing and tweaking it and still works perfect.

I also post a guide on how to flash a firmware on the Samsung Galaxy S2 for your reference.

Thanks.

my camera settings (shortcuts, settings like autocontrast etc) reset whenever i exit the app and reload it. Why is this? It’s a horrible bug :( its as if it clears the settings file whenever I leave the application

I am really happy with the new KE7. I just updated a few minuyes ago. Biggest improvement for me was . that the screen brightness is much darker now. means more batterylife. i will post some results later if i can find anything else usefull. btw where are the patch notes so i could see exactly what changed? sorry for the typos.
