  1. Changelog?

  2. nice one!

  3. nice, but did not change anything looks almost nothing since the gingerbread.. :S
    At least not show anything.

  4. whats so deff from the 4.0.1 ?? is it worth the wipe ?

  5. Till nothing so far… only restart button is green in case of orange. Need some more time to check.

  6. any significant changes???

    Sammobile rocked again

    I will waiting for the day which shows sammobile leaking jelly bean for galaxy s2

  7. Guys, how is the browser? Coz in 4.0.3 was not as smooth as in gingerbread, there were some micro stutters

  8. We just got a tip not sure if we were the first or something. Please take care.

    This rom is official Samsung but not out yet.

  9. Thanks Sammobile. You’re great!.
    I hope jelly bean for SGS2 next…

  10. one more thought about this !! JB forget about it for the next year or so now …… at least for the next 6 months i dont see it coming any time soon unless samsung skips this update and jump to JB all together .

  11. it seems that most important thing is to have newest phone os. Only thing which I like on ICS and I didn’t have it with GB is possibility to use google talk to talk :). This is the only functionality which I get. Face recognition and similar …. things are so … bljak …

  12. hope fix problem with data 3g on galaxy S2 and waiting jelly bean update :)

  13. im sorry about this question in advance, but which files do i use with which options in odin??

  14. lol sorry forget that i mixed up the files :P

  15. is it 3-files rom ??

  16. Do you have the rooted kernel for this firmware?

  17. Suckssssssss!!! Fuck samsung !!! Is similar with 4.0.3 ics !!! Garbage !!!

  18. Think before you post give me one reason why samsung should change whole interface for 1% of all galaxy s2 users. 99% of all s2 users don’t care about any update.

  19. OH! MY GOD!
    Goodness Samsung
    next step for S2 is jelly bean.

  20. Thanks DannyD. Now I hope Galaxy Note 4.0.4 fixes the battery drain issue. ;-)

  21. though i m not owner of 9100G(G model),Samsung clearly cheated to customers which have 9100G.

  22. 4.0.4 is awesome and now waiting for JB…

  23. hey guyz,does everything on this update work and can it be rooted????

  24. Hey guys, this might be a very silly question but where is the link for the download?

  25. Any significant difference b/w 4.0.3 and 4.0.4 ?

  26. we didnt even get the ics 4.0.3 here in middle east :(

  27. not even the lock screen is changed…….and i give a formating usb storage and now recognize only 4,11 gb from 12gb……enyone know something?

  28. i tried it and cant find any noticeable changes. Menu fonts a little bigger….icons appear slightly smaller. Screen appears slightly sharper, even in dynamic mode colours were not as over saturated. Other than that not really worth it in my opinion. Flashed back immediately. Prefer nova launcher with 4.0.3

    HUGE LET DOWN

  29. guys u talkin about if whether u change to 4.0.4 update or keep with 4.0.3 but we here in Middle east got none except GB so please samsung we need the ICS update like the rest of the countries

  30. Google made na visual changes in the 4.0.4 update. Just some tweaks under the hood.
    Samsung isnt going to make much changes with the 4.0.4 updat either so stop whining!
    If you dont like TouchWiz and want a pure google experience on the latest Android version go CM or buy a Nexus!

    Samsung will first update the GS3 to Android 4.1. Maybe after that the GS2 will be next in line or if were unlucky the Tab 2′s go first. But we may get lucky and receive an early leaked version of 4.1, SamMobile does it everytime _O_.

  31. i hope 4.0.4 will also give changes on the flaws found in galaxy note like the way it plays videos and other bugs

  32. It became even worse than 4.0.3 because, I have my camera sound back even in silent mode, brightness control over notification bar is also gone. quite disappointing… somebody show me one single diffidence between UHLPS 4.0.3 and XXLQ5 4.0.4 !! . I feel like cheated!

    I’m going to flash back to XWLPG which in my opinion has the least bugs.

  33. Guyz please could any 1 tell me
    What’s the capacity of the ram on 4.0.4?

  34. So many leaks for SGS2 and not a single one for GTab 10.1 :-(

  35. thanks…….i updated my fone now my fone is more smooth ,doesnt freeze, and battery life is improves…..

  36. I updated this afternoon, most of the application stable.. but now i cant swipe at the top of the screen to change my brightness..

  37. So ,This is old tuochwiz ?why ?

  38. installed and works fine, dont get all the bla bla……………

  39. According to XDA, if you flash without the PIT file, you won’t lose your data (no need to wipe either).
    Can anyone bring real feedback on what this ROM improves? Is it worth the change versus 4.0.3?

  40. Yeah!! I Wanna 4.0.4 on my GALAXY NOTE too !!!! :-)

  41. I don’t think I will ever buy a Samsung phone, because it’s all buggy and they don’t know how to fix it. I own a GS2 for over 1 year, there were many bugs with samsung’s android 2.3.3 – 2.3.6. Now with Samsung’s android 4.0.3, it’s even worse.

  42. Reduced phone memory from 11.41gb to 4.1gb, I am shocked !!!

  43. well in my opinion the 4.0.4 is much more stable and way faster than 4.0.3 …. just gaming and browsing is so much better and textures are sharper … the one thing that annoys me the brightness control on the notification bar which unfortunately has dissappeared :( … come on SAMSUNG !

  44. It’s great to hear that, thanks a lot. But GS3 sreen lock will be available on GS2???

  45. Any one pls tell me wat to do as my usb storage shrink to 4.11 gb!!! .pit is reason for that? Shuld i flash it again without .pit? Pls guys suggest me how to gt back usb storage to 11.5gb….

  46. Be careful with any wipe or recovery use on this firmware. After it you will have a chance to hard-brick your phone without any yet known way to recover it.

  47. DON’T USE THE .PIT FILE! IT REDUCES YOUR USB STORAGE BY 8GB. STRAIGHT FROM XDA DEVELOPERS!

  48. The PIT file as stated above appears to be odd.

    Ext4 8GB? Nice format, but no thank you.

  49. Hmm.. better wait for Jelly Bean for now…

  50. Everything is working fine. Bluetooth, Wifi, 3G, etc. Some Bugs have been corrected, screen is sharper than 4.0.3 and battery is very nice. I flashed just the big file (I9100_CODE_I9100XXLQ5_CL753921_REV02_user_low_ship.tar) via Odin and I wiped out the phone before the entire process (*2767*3855#), wipe clean procedure, and after that flashed the device. I’m in the second day, and so far so good.

  51. But i’m waiting for jelly bean.

  52. Flashed last night and seems to be better so far …

  53. Nice, looking forward for an official non beta release :)

    BUT:
    IF SAMSUNG DOESN’T RELEASE JB FOR S2, I SEE NO REASON TO PREFER SGS3 OVER MOTOROLLA PHONE.. they get all the updates pretty quick too.

  54. Please make some rom for galaxy r gt i9103.. i want ics and jeely bean for my galaxy r gt i9103.

  55. what abowt root it ? i trie and i loost my camera.

  56. Thanks SamMobile, great updated!, finally a spain language good translate, new icons in some option menus, the faster lockscreen, a new Samsung Account apk but the GPS it´s a bit slower and the baterry download more fastest than 4.0.3. Also the Email apk have a issue with the Folders don´t sync or not appear

    Thanks!!

  57. Is samsung galaxy s2 will get jelly bean update ????

  58. Android 4.0.4 March 29, 2012:

    * Stability improvements
    * Better camera performance
    * Smoother screen rotation
    * Improved phone number recognition

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Android_version_history

  59. It works fine for me, more stable and smother. The problem came after I rooted the device, Netflix did not show any video. So i roll back to 4.0.3, hope a better root

  60. I had same the problem after rooting. I’m going to try 4.0.4 ZCLPL though.

  61. working fine.. no remarkable change.. except 4.0.4 the new milestone for galaxy s2.. waiting for JB..

  62. Is this beta version or official?

  63. I’m waiting for the update for i9100G in France :D

  64. it has some problem with video screen, I select full screen and my videos fails to see

  65. after upgrading to 4.0.4, the upper left right slide to adjust screen brightness is no longer available. So, need to change the brightness manually via settings or use third party software available for download at google play. I noticed the screen transition is faster than 4.0.3 too. Thanks sammobile for this firmware, I like it :o)

  66. @maxwel1

    If you are talking about arabic ROM then try Iraq’s ROM from middle east, its complete arabic version

  67. …been using this firmware for a couple days now & I cld say, it’s fast & no more laggy…. satisfied with it so to speak :-D

  68. very fine update but … in my case shows no videos from youtub or whatever video just plays sound without picture
    I found the reason was that I changed the original kernel to Siyah kernel, so when am back to the original rom kernel the video played well

  69. I was upgrade to this and difference is significant. More smooth and battery draining is better. I flashed by odin 1.85 without pit file and wiped everything before upgrade. It seems camera software is not as good as in last 4.0.3.

  70. This ROM is definitely better than 4.0.3. I have used it for about two weeks now and here are some observations;

    1) Toggling Wifi /3G on and off is much faster
    2) Connecting to wireless networks is much faster as well
    3) Generally screen and apps ‘respond faster’
    4) Battery life is definitely improved ( I don’t have any battery management apps installed – no juice defender, no Go power master.)

    I flushed the PIT file despite the so many “DON’T …” pieces of advice. When I wiped my internal storage, the capacity was reduced to 4.11 GB.

    No sweat solution is simple!!!

    1) Flash a stock ginger bread ROM (with PIT file u1_02_20110310_emmc_EXT4.pit)
    2) After you reboot, you will have a soft brick ( efs partition missing, cannot wipe cache etc)
    3) Flash stock ginger bread ROM again (with PIT file u1_02_20110310_emmc_EXT4.pit)
    4) Reboot and format internal storage. Capacity should now be 11GB.

    Note: You should have a backup of your efs partition. The serial will show ’00000000000′. Restore your EFS backup to rectify this.

  71. MAKE MY S2 ARABIC
