hi every1. i keep seeing every1 talking about android version 2.3.4. but i currently have 2.3.3 on my gs2 and i have looked for a software update on my phone but it says none available. where can i get it? i dont have kies. i just use the update through my phone.

It says the software on my phone is:

Android version 2.3.3
Baseband verson I9100BUKG1
GINGERBREAD.BUKG2.

Is this the latest?
thanx.
 
I flashed mine in Friday - used SAMFIRMWARE.com - bit of a PITA cos of the download limits - one every 30 mins! But downloaded the large file overnight.

Was easy. First time. Also did my misses galaxy mini - had a heart stopping moment there when the first attempt did start lol! Used a later version and it was fine.

Battery life on s2 if around 8 hours better and its slicker and quicker. Only problem is on the lock screen there is an FM radio widget that jams the screen up occassionally - it appears when I get a text message that I haven't read. Just need to hit the power button to unlock it again. Anyone know why it does this?

If I update to KH3 or KH4 to try them then flash back to KG5 will that wipe my data going backwards?

Also reading instructions to get rid of a yellow triangle after rooting there are steps that I need to take to do so and one of the steps is to download the STOCK KERNEL, just a little confused my phone out of the box was I think KE2 then updated via Kies to KE7 then updated to KG5 via Odin which would be the stock kernel?

if you updated to KG5 firmware, and then rooted, the stock file you need to remove yellow triangle is the KG5 stock kernal, found on the same XDA page where you downloaded the KG5 (Poland) package - it's directly below.

and no, going backwards shouldn't wipe data. though if you're rooted and done your titanium backups it wouldnt be an issue anyway.

im not sure about flashign back an olded firmware.. generally all the firmwares on that thread are non-wipe unless it says it will wipe ur phone.. but when i initially flashed KG5 over KG6, i had to wipe.. not sure if that was an issue with KG5 or KG6.. anyway, like Sydney said, if ur rooted, use titanium before u flash back, and it wont matter :)
