    It's probably only for the international version. I hope we get it on Sprint as well, but I'm certainly not holding my breath for it.

    I would reread that article a little closer... especially this line.
    and the update will also allow GS2 users to Beam with other phones by simply touching another NFC compatible phone
    As far as I know... No GS2 has NFC support natively. I've seen/read that there are batteries that have NFC support, not sure if the GS2 has ever seen one though.

    To true... To true, but after everything I've read in the forums about the ICS update that Sprint screwed up... Do you want them to???

    Gonna Wait!!!!!! For what??? I've been running CM10 since Alfa3 on my ET4G... It's freaking AMAZING!!!!
    I haven't had a single issue with it yet... wouldn't give it up for any other rom out there. Everything works as it should if not even better than it should.
    Battery life is good to... Not as good as with CM9 but I still get 15 to 16 hours off of a full charge.

    And I've been running CM10 on my Gtab10.1 for almost 2 months now... Same thing... Smooth as butter!!!! Sure the camera's don't work but for me that's just fine. I've only taken 3 pictures with my Tab in the last year and they where all off my feet!!!

    The international S2 has NFC. And my phone worked perfectly fine on ff18 and fh13 and there are several other leaks out.

    SouthPhilly,

    Can you or anyone post the links and instructions on how to install CM10 cause honestly it seems to me that ever since the GS3 came out our phone has been pretty much tossed aside and i barely see any news regarding this phone.

    Thanks sorry for asking.

    It's a bit of a process. You need to download the ROM and gapps-jb-20120726-signed.zip from here:

    [ROM] CM10 alpha5.3: Android 4.1.1 for Samsung Epic 4G Touch - xda-developers

    You either want Alpha 5.3 or the latest nightly (I'm running 5.2 and waiting for the next alpha release to update).

    Once you have that, you need to download and use the tool Odin to revert your phone back to a kernel that's safe for flashing since the Samsung ICS ROMs have a bug that can cause your phone to hard-brick (ie become useless). Here is a video w/ instructions on how to do that: [ROM][CM9][AOKP] Temporary Stock E4GT from emmc - xda-developers

    Once you're on the EL29 Samsung ROM, turn on the GPS and get a fix while in Google Maps. Once you have a fix, reboot the phone and it should go into Clockwork Mod custom recovery. From there you can follow the instructions in the original post (OP) on Xda Net for CM10 and wipe and flash CM10.

    Good luck! This was the first ROM I flashed on my phone and I'm glad I finally took the leap of faith and gave it a try. I've been using it as my daily driver for a few weeks now, and for the most part it rocks!

    Odining to EL29 isn't necessary. Just as long as it's a safe recovery. I flashed from FF18. EL29 is said to be safer, but is only really necessary if you know for a fact that you have GPS problems and absolutely need GPS.

    Samsung Galaxy S II - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Search "NFC" on that page. Most S2s have it. TMo and ATT have it, Sprint got screwed.

    I'm pretty sure xda has safe kernels for ics to flash anything on but I could be wrong I'm on cm9 beta, I'm not to up on the jelly bean builds. There is 4 jb roms on xda for our phone not sure which is the best it seems to very from person to person. One of them is the rom here. Qbking77 has a video for at least one build on how to install the rom on YouTube.

    This is how to install the aosp build over on xda. It should pertain to all of them, but read the op for the rom you are going to install to see if anything is different but it should be the jist of what to do.
