EXCLUSIVE: Android 4.0.1 by Samsung for SGS2 (CUSTOM)

Follow: Firmware news

After a long wait Samsung has finally started testing Android 4.0.
Last week our “insider” presented us with XXKP1.
The Android version of this ROM is Android 4.0.1.
The build date is 7 december 2011.

As you may know of us we often get these leaks prior to release.
After we did some checks on it we can confirm that we’re dealing with a “CUSTOM” Samsung build.
We strongly advise people who only flash stock ROMs to not flash this.
As you all may know we only offer stock ROMs so you will not find this firmware on our usual firmware page.
We at Sammobile offcourse have tested this ROM in all curiousity.
Samsung uses Android 4.0 with their own TW-Launcher and Android 4.0 tweaks.
Below you will find a video review of this ROM.

What works in I9100XXKP1?
All the Basics work like calling , sms , internet and more.
Some applications havent been worked out correct so they will force close on stress.
Because we are dealing with a “CUSTOM” ROM here it can occur that the phone will react very slow from time to time.
There is also the chance of some “RANDOM REBOOTS”
We at Sammobile advise people to not use thhis ROM for daily usage.
If you want to download this firmware then you can do so via the provided link below.


Again if you only flash STOCK ROMs then dont flash this.
Because you flash this rom with “unsecure” kernel the phone thinks its “CUSTOM”and will start counting on your custom counter.
You will loose your warranty because of this.

    thanks for sharing guys, i guess i’ll do a nand backup and maybe give it a try

    but Samsung’s take on ICS is very bad at the first look, hope they’ll tweak it some more until the final release.

    Nice to see that Samsung has moved. “TouchWiz” is simply out of place and makes the beautiful “ICS” broken. I like to wait until codeworkx has published his build.

    Just a piece of advice to Samsung, please be careful with your wordings, do some research and know what is a Beta and what is Alpha, then name this accordingly.
    No way this one could be called a Beta.

    A BIG thanks to sammobile to upload this anyway, without you guys Samsung are half f*ed up.
    Nuff said.

    Well here’s some bad news for some (most?) :( of you. It looks like even though the Samsung Galaxy S2 will receive an update to Android 4.0, it will look nothing like ICS at all. In fact you’ll barely notice any difference in the UI compared to what you have now. It will mostly be the same old TouchWiz 4.0. So most of the changes will be under the hood….

    The developer of this program receives my consideration. However, he has forgotten several functions, such as call forwarding or call waiting can be not activate or deactivate is not, for example, the menu available. Furthermore, only about one wireless data connection to be made ​​not on the SIM card. So without any contact with the wireless Internet. Perhaps this can still produce.
    The facial recognition is not accurate.
    Phone you, it is sometimes not possible to end the call and the phone restarts.
    Is it in the menu and you want the menu to the right goes to left and vice versa.
    It would be great, I know it is a beta version, but one can certainly make these points a little.
    It would be great if ICS would be available.
    I have many ideas, but I am no developer and no clue. But I use it a lot. So please, dear developer, and then listen to what the consumer has a lot more joy in your development.

    If anyone can help me with my problem would be grateful. Use this room in my Galaxy S II AT&T SGH-I777, everything works fine, my problem is I want to return to the original room, I have a backup done with the recovery mode of ClockworkMod. Now I can not enter the recovery mode to load the backup (vol up + vol down + power button). Try charging the original room from odin, but now my phone does not continue to turn from the boot animation, i still can not enter the recovery mode. Anyone thinks of something to help.

    Thank you very much and I apologize my English is very bad
