    ICS launcher is ugly, i like more the touchwiz stuff, better more functions that less.

    Only 5 Homescreens on ics this sucks, and some other stuff, it is boring after a week usage. But who cares, others that are using stock ICS launcher are installing anyway a other launcher cuase stock android was always boring and the launcher with the less functionality.

    and what’s up with the green battery??? they should put ICS icons so it would feel a TW ICS.

    and i hate the samsung update in the upper drawer. Can’t remove it…. :(

    the only good thing on this the fast interface and 3d like feel.

    i have read at XDA that GPS is not working properly. please update and fix some minor issues…

    Hi there. Firstly, thanks for all the roms etc. Great work.

    Just a few quick questions. I haven’t installed any roms on my SGSII since I’ve had my phone. So I’m fairly new to all this. (Had a Wave S8500 – flashing was a quick and easy task)

    1. If I want to install this (official) rom, do I have to root my phone?
    2. If I don’t have to root my phone to install this rom, will the warranty void counter be enabled
    (Yellow notification triangle-thingy at phone start-up)
    3. Do I need an SD card in my phone to flash?

    Thanks :)

    not any visually major changes over gingerbread i will wait till march i think..still great work sammobiles ,hats off to u guys.

    ———@Troffel @—- i will try to give ur answers.ans1-) no for official roms u do not have to root ur phone , you can just flash it by adin named software with ur (official) rom.
    ans2–) first of all u should know this rom is not officially released yet, if u dont want to lose ur warranty update ur phone through kies only.(if ur country is quick with updates) and yes rooting ur phone will lose warranty,that yellow trangle comes only after rooting phone not by updating rom.
    ans3-)no u dont need it atall. even cwm uses internal memory to update zip.if u uses it… so big NO. just back up all ur data beforeing trying this stuff ,good luck.

    Found bug/issue.

    On Gingerbread you could switch vibration always –> settings –> sound –> vibration

    But no there’s just an option for the vibration intensity and silent mode. Thus for me the option for always vibrate is missing?! Or did samsung put it somewhere else?

    Please confirm or disconfirm this. by the way if anyone knows how to turn always vibrate back on, please let me know.

    The software update icon disappeared after letting yer phone check for updates. The market error disappeared after the first reboot. Tried it on three phones, all had the initial market “network error” but after the first reboot market worked fine on all of them. Google background services are asking for WAKE_LOCK and getting it, draining the battery (on my phone) in 3 hours. Apart from that it’s a nice rom for a alpha/beta (whatever it is). Kind of stable, turns off the screen every now and then but no serious hang-ups. I kinda get that samsung wanna brand their phones by putting TW on top of everything, I don’t say that I like it, but I get why they’re doing it. We can all go, say CyanogenMod, in a couple of weeks, right? Even though right now, without kernel sources available to fix ****ty things like hardware codecs and stuff, its not as good as this leaked rom (for everyday usage). I’m happy with this version. For me 2G/3G worked out just fine, no manual configuration required.

    Configuring APN never was a problem, give a name, apn name, save and ready, until you can install an APN SWITCH WIDGET to save battery, works fine in my opinion.
    The UI look some interesting, by the style to scroll the desktops with that semi-3d effect, at least TW looks some different, the wallpaper now slides sweet and not framed like old ics roms, the TW in this rom have some interesting thing that makes it different from the xxlp6 ics rom.
    The call user interface works fast when you make a call from TW, and returning to TW, without glithes, also changing between apps, or apps folders in the desktops, or simply configuring, watching options or settings, changing wallpapers, the same gallery.
    Still left me test the camera, multimedia, bluetooth, mail client, and video performance on games. Well, i have installed several apps that use in my job, having advantage over all sensor, still haven’t problems.

    Maybe that SAMMOBILE have reason:
    “This rom is still in beta/alpha fase but this one is looking really stable!
    We of SamMobile can say: This rom is ready for daily use.”

    I’ll continue testing on daily use.
    Good luck guys!

    So far there seems to be much better battery life in standby (I flashed the phone before bed).

    Also, the signal level indicator icon actually works now. Wifi has upload and download arrow indicators and 3G and H+ networks are displayed using Bell Canada network.

    One issue is that my keyboard has the “Y” and “Z” keys switched. So, now I am using a QWERTZ keyboard instead of a QWERTY keyboard. Haha! Either way, will check into the keyboard issue and/or replace it with another from the market… :P

    Glad I flashed this release as the previous ICS version was beginning to become quite frustating.

    Thank you!

    Oh, and thank you to Chainfire from the XDA Developers forums for creating the Mobile Odin application as it made flashing / rooting / etc. so much easier! I recommend checking this out if you flash firmwares a lot.

    NOTE: Sammobile should change the p***word on firmware archives from “” to “” to reflect the new website change.

    Posible solution for some problems , 3G, keyb,etc.: This firm is multi CSC and by default it installs a “rare” one, for me.

    Use *#272*IMEI# and search the better for you. In Spain select FOP and then all spanish providers are disposable.

    ATENTION: This change wipe the configurations and apps, then it’s better doing this process just after the upgrade or make a back up first and restoring later.

    IMO its not a daily driver. Its lagging way way too much, and several of my apps kept force closing. Mind you apps that works fine on 2.3.6. And that being apps native to the phone.

    So I think I will wait for the official one from Samsung thank you.

    Flashed it now for the third time, set the APN countless times, dis a couple of soft/hard resets, battery in/out, but no internet! Even flashed a Gingerbread build in between (and that had working 3G instantly).
    So I really wonder how you guys manage to get 3G internet working on this build.

    Turns out there is no XEN CSC for the Netherlands in this build!
    That does it!
    I’m going back to Gingerbread. Couldn’t see much differnce with ICS anyway.
    If you select the same background picture, the only thing you notice is a different menu and shorter battery life

    Esta ROMs, no te permite instalar algunas APP como son las de televisión digital tal como TDT a la carta … y todas las parecidas …. parece que le quiere ahorrar baterias y …bit a las empresas de teléfono …. De lo demás está muy buena para uso diario … !! La KK5 sigue siendo la mejor de todas !!

    This is a great ROM with the right tweaks. Virginmobile/Bell Canada, and all (mobile/GPS) are file. Add the APN manually, gps is stable. Flashed CF-Root. Flashed Nova Launcher (much prefer it over TW), set it to black wallpaper, Auto Brightness off (major battery savers). No real problems with apps (one restarted it out of nowhere). Froze a lot of bloatware with Titanium Backup. I’m getting 1% battery loss per hour (did full wipes before flashing).

    One MAJOR problem (apparently with all of the derivatives of this ROM) is that NONE of the VPN types work. I tried flashing a number based on this one, and all either have timeouts on L2TP, or “Uncuccessful” on PPTP. apparently. tun.ko (and cifs.ko) are missing. The Tun.ko Install app reports tun.ko as loaded, but then no tun.ko available (or installed if you search for it). This apparently has to be compiled into the kernel/has to be compatible, so I don’t know if any are out there. Regardless, I use it as a work driver, so that’s one feature I’ll have to work around. For many on a long thread across various devices (including the Nexus) on another XDA forum, this is a major dealbreaker that Samsung had better deal with this, or they can kiss this distribution goodbye as a viable business alternative — quite a number of people use the VPN functionality.

    Overall, however, it’s a good, stable ROM.

    Using it for a few days now. Very stable rom.

    Gps works, 3g, wifi, market and all apps.

    This is only for the international version, maybe thats why al the problems!

    I got the same gs2 as everybody here. And i have zero problems! VERY STRANGE!

    Hi guys back with my report after a few days of use.

    The following things should be fixed:

    Still missing the option to turn vibration on all the time.

    Sometimes short messages won’t arrive even a reboot doesn’t deliver the missing short messages!

    Can’t send or recieve mms.

    Background synchronisation doesn’t work as it should. Sometimes it doesn’t even work anymore and just a reboot helps to get it working again.

    GPS works every now and then.

    I manually had to create my carrieres APN (vodafone germany).

    It is a bit laggy every now and then also I don’t do any multitasking.

    Sometimes it drains much power sometimes it very battery saving (Android OS sometimes sucks my battery empty) – kind of strange!

    Every now and then the can’t use my data network so I have to reboot and when checking the battery stats after such a reboot, the system displays that the system is running just for few seconds – it seems to me that the systems hangs up and starts back like if you removed the charger.

    Sometimes when using the dialer and I got contacts with the same name I can’t expand the contacts to choose the right contact! Very annoying!

    All in all it’s fun to use but in my eyes it is not ready for daily use, cause there still to many issues left which need to be fixed first!

    I just in the morning install this new ROM, I had troubles with the internet connection, but was solved after configure APN (I wasn´t had this trouble with the previous ROM version LP6). The another issue is related to the Kies backup, since it was not reloaded, also the Kies doesn’t inform any trouble in restore.

    For those who has troubles, remember first unlock your phone with the operator before start the Odin process. Make your backups using google and maintain the sync updated.

    The battery was really god, I had some locks with the settings app, and the software upload notification is still there after reboot, and disable the app.

    Regards from Colombia.

    Hi everybody,
    For those who have a premium car phone system (like audi, volkwsagen, mercedes, nokia 6xx, parrot ck3500…), the bluetooth sim access profile (SAP/rSAP) is still not supported.

    So th XXLPB is unusable in this kind of car phones.
    I hope that Samsung did not stop the support of rSAP.

    I have installed this firmware, it looks stable but i found this:

    - no random restarts
    - wifi working
    - camera working with photos / videos
    - 3g worked but after i deleted the APNs and added again, not working anymore
    - Various programs which worked on 2.3.6 crashed on 4.0.3 XXLPB (go contacts ex, apn manager, facebook app doesn;t load anything on 3g just on wifi)
    - seems stable.


    - the phone looked that it was on the network (signal full) but nobody could call me (the operator saying that my phone is off or not in coverage) and i could not call anyone. Didn’t work with restart from the phone menu, just with power off and on again.

    I’ll go back to 2.3.6 for a while

    To anyone having problems with the stupid Software Update notification, this solution worked for me so I hope it will help you guys out.

    1. Navigate to the Apps menu (Settings>Apps) and select the “All” tab
    2. Scroll down until you see 2 different “Software Update” apps next to each other
    3. There should be one with a green icon, you want to select this one
    4. It should now give you the option to “Force Stop” or “Disable”
    5. Hit “Disable and good bye stupid notification

    The only problem I’ve experienced with this firmware so far (aside from the stupid notification thing) is that my gallery will crash if I try to apply a new home or lock screen background.

    I can still browse the gallery without any problem and apply live wallpapers with no problem either. Apart from that, this firmware is the best and most stable release by far (until the next one).
