Galaxy s2 i777 updates
Hello I have a question that I am not able to find a answer too, so maybe someone here can help me.
I went to ATT in Iowa and bought the Samsung galaxy s2 i777 phone straight out full price and than I went home and unlocked the sim card so that I can use it on the t-mobile. the phone is on os 2.3.4 and I cant get it to update to anything else through the update phone program. It tell me (communication failed, you have a update available)
in about phone it says this
android vers. 2.3.4
baseband vers. i777uckh7
kernel vers. 126.96.36.199
build # gingerbread.uckh7
bought and use in the U.S.A any idea on how to get the updates? THANK-YOU

Re: Galaxy s2 i777 updates
There is only one official update available for the I777 (UCKK6) and trust me - you do NOT want that update. It contains major battery life regressions.
The only way to get a non-broken update is to manually install firmware that was ported from I9100 to I777. (Do NOT install I9100 firmware directly!)
I suggest spending a day or two reading through the I777 development forums on xda-developers.com
AT&T has been stuck on the broken UCKK6 update since December. I9100 received many Gingerbread updates, and within a few days I should have Android 4.0 porting to the I777 finished.
