Update Galaxy S2 I9100G to Official Android 4.1.2 DXLS8 Jelly Bean Firmware
Galaxy S2 I9100G has been in the spotlight for quite some time, as
the smartphone has received uninhibited developer support with a spate
of Jelly Bean updates via custom ROMs, besides regular official updates
from Samsung. Recently the handset received Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean)
custom firmware via the popular SlimBean Build 5.5 ROM from SlimROMs team.
Now Samsung has rolled out its latest Jelly Bean Over-The-Air
(OTA) firmware, Android 4.1.2 DXLS8, for the phone in several countries
including Malaysia. The official firmware is still unavailable for
download through Samsung KIES. Nevertheless, those who did not receive
the OTA update notification and those who cannot wait for the official
release in their country can download and install the same manually,
using our step-by-step guide. NOTE: The installation of this firmware does
not require ClockworkMod (CWM) recovery or a rooted Galaxy S2
smartphone. Instead, it can be installed via ODIN flash tool. Android 4.1.2 DXLS8 Firmware Details: PDA: I9100GDXLS8 CSC: I9100GOLBLS8 Version: 4.1.2 Date: April, 2013 Key Points to Note

How to Install Official Android 4.1.2 DXLS8 Jelly Bean Update on Galaxy S2 I9100G Step 1: Download Android 4.1.2 DXLS8 Jelly Bean firmware for Galaxy S2 I9100G and Odin v3.07 on your computer. Step 2: Extract the firmware zip file to a desired location on the desktop to receive a .tar.md5 file and some other files (optional). Step 3: Extract Odin zip file to obtain Odin3 v3.07.exe along with few other files. Step 4: Power off the phone and wait for vibration (about 5-6 seconds) to confirm complete device shutdown. Now boot the phone into Download Mode
by pressing and holding Volume Down, Home and Power button together
until a construction Android robot icon with a triangle appears on
screen. Then hit Volume Up button to enter Download Mode. Step 5: Launch Odin3 v3.07.exe that you obtained in Step 3 as an Administrator, as Admin privileges are required to complete the firmware installation process smoothly. Step 6: Connect your phone to computer via USB cable. When the device connects successfully, the message saying "Added!" appears in ODIN and the ID: COM box will turn yellow with
the corresponding COM port number. If the message fails to appear, try
reinstalling the phone's USB drivers or changing the port on the
computer. Step 7: Choose the following files from I9100GDXLS8 folder that you obtained in Step 2 in Odin using respective checkboxes:
Select the PDA checkbox, and click the .tar.md5 file
Tap the Phone checkbox, and select the file named 'modem' (ignore if such file is not found)
Choose the CSC checkbox, and click the file named 'CSC' (ignore if there is no such file)
Click the PIT checkbox, and choose the '.pit' file (ignore if the file is missing)
Step 8: In Odin, enable Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time options by selecting the checkboxes. But, the Re-Partition checkbox must be selected, only if a .pit file was chosen in the previous step in ODIN. Step 9: To prevent ROM related errors, verify Step 7 and Step 8 are done correctly. Then hit the START button to begin flashing the firmware. Step 10: Once the firmware installation is complete, the phone will reboot automatically and soon a PASS message with green background
appears in the left-most box at the very top of Odin. Now it is safe to
disconnect the USB cable to remove the device from computer.
The Galaxy S2 I9100G is now running on Android 4.1.2 DXLS8 Jelly Bean
official firmware. Go to Settings > About Phone to verify the
firmware version installed. Troubleshooting:
If the device gets stuck at boot animation or Samsung logo after Step 10, then go to recovery mode (press and hold the Volume Up, Home and Power buttons together) and perform Wipe data/Factory Reset as well as Wipe Cache Partition before tapping reboot system now. NOTE: Use Volume keys to navigate between options
and Power key to select an option in recovery. Please note that
performing wiping function will erase your phone's internal memory and
not data stored on SD card.
How to manually upgrade or install the I9100MUGMA5 Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean on Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100M
Note: This stock firmware ‘I9100MUGMA5′ is only compatible for Canada’s Samsung Galaxy S II with the specification model number “GT-I9100M″. The I9100MUGMA5 is an upgrade from previous released I9100MUGLD3 4.0.3 ICS. Step 1: Grab the relevant files for flashing I9100MUGMA5 - Odin3_v3.07 Flasher toolDownload link - Samsung Galaxy S2 USB driver, Download link
Grab the Original I9100MUGMA5 Stock ROM Bell – BMC_I9100MUGMA5_I9100MOYCMA5 download link Virgin– VMC_I9100MUGMA5_I9100MOYCMA5 download link Sasktel– BWA_I9100MUGMA5_I9100MOYCMA5 download link Step 2: Prepare things as follows:
- Use a PC or laptop that runs in Windows OS, with a good and perfectly working USB serial port.
- Use the USB cable wire for your Galaxy S2.
- Make sure that your Galaxy S2 battery is fully charge.
- Back up all important files stored from your phone’s internal memory – contacts, messages, etc.
- Enable USB debugging from your phone’s settings. Go to Settings >
Applications > Development, and tick the box that says ‘Enable USB
- Do a “Hard Reset” if you have a lot of 3rd party
applications installed from your phone, this is useful to gain a smooth
flashing. (Just make sure that you already back up all your
important files before resetting your device. Step 3: Extract or unzip the downloaded stock firmware so that you’ll get the Odin flashable .tar.md5 file. Use winzip, winrar, 7zip or any extracting tool you had in your computer.
Step 4: Run and Configure Odin
Run Odin downloader on your computer’s desktop. Watch out the check-boxes options on the right top of Odin, ensure that the ‘RE-PARTITION’ is unchecked. Leave the ‘AUTO-REBOOT and ‘F.RESET TIME’ remains ticked. Step 5: Reboot the Galaxy S2 into Download Mode.
To put your Galaxy S2 in download mode, just simply switch it off
then gently press and hold the “POWER, VOLUME DOWN and HOME” buttons
simultaneously. You’ll be then prompted in a warning screen to continue
(press volume up) or cancel.
Step 6: Connect the Phone to the Computer or Laptop
Once the phone screen shows in downloading mode, connect your phone to the PC with the USB cable.
You’ll then notice the upper box in Odin that turns in yellow color.,
it also indicates the COM:ID where the device is being detected and a
word “added!!’ on the log box. If somehow those things never showed up,
check out the USB cable connection, read again from the top of this post.
Step 7: Load the .tar.md5 file in Odin.
Now, click on the PDA button, then browse and load the tar file that
you have previously extracted. For example I’m using the Bell stock firmware on this guide so I got the “I9100MUGMA5_I9100OYCMA5_I9100MUGMA5_HOME.tar.md5″
Step 8: Flash it!
Once all set and ready, hit he “START” button to begin flashing.
Do not touch anything that might interrupt the process to avoid any
fatal errors or failures, it may ruin your device if any interruption
occurs while already in flashing status.
It may only takes about 2 to 5 minutes, depends of your PC/laptop
speeds. A word “PASS” will display in Odin once it finishes. If somehow
you will not get the word “PASS” or just stuck in a long time.
Disconnect the phone, remove battery, re-insert it, check the USB
connection, re-install the driver, disable Kies and any anti-virus. Set
the phone in Download mode again, and repeat the whole procedure.
The phone will just automatically reboots if the firmware flashing
successfully completes. Just wait until it boots up on the welcome
screen logo for a while then into an android update screen. If it still
shows boot logo try rebooting and if it stays there, you need to wipe

We all know that this phone re branded from China. But which mobel was that? Model No is: S9 spd 6820 & Callbar A1
Standard Stock ROM - Rooted This is mostly a copy of the stock rom of the device with the following changes:
- SU binaries included - SuperUser app added -
Ayu_Sales.apk (CAIVS) application removed - In case you want to know
what this app is, check your mobile phone bill. If you find SMS messages
sent to chinese numbers (starting by +13) that you have never sent, you
now know who to blame
As the ROM is rooted, you can now mount as RW the /system folder and change anything you want.
Modded Stock ROM - Rooted This
is a modified version of the rom I have done to clean the device from
unwanted and chinese software and to add some missing apps. Details are:
- SU binaries included - SuperUser app added - Ayu_Sales.apk (CAIVS) application removed - Go Keyboard (and all its language plugins) removed - Default Launchers (there were 2) and theme removed. - ADW Launcher added - GMail added - Google Talk added - Gallery3D substituted by Cool 3D Gallery
And that should be all.
Link to firmware: Download Now, for the flashing software, the link to get it is: Download
For Rooting you can find many ways in Google. This phone is a Speadtrum which Unrootable. But I suggest to see this post in XDA-Developers.
make sure you do a Clean fresh install
you can wipe cache and wipe dalvik after flashes as well
For now this is going to be based on Google's Open Source for kitkat 4.4 (stock aosp google for now)
ParanoidAndroid is starting from scratch and once the team has updated the PA sources i'll add as it goes along..
