The Samsung Galaxy S2 has only been out on the market for a short while, and itís not even available worldwide yet. However, that hasnít stopped Samsung from issuing software updates for its flagship Android device of 2011. In fact, so far, the Galaxy S2 has received no less than two different software updates.
The latest one is version i9100XWKE2, and itís now available to install via Samsungís Kies desktop software. And therein lies the catch Ė neither update is of the over-the-air variety. Which is a bit odd, since the Galaxy S2 does seem to have an OTA update mechanism built-in, unlike its predecessor, the original Galaxy S. So updating your phone will require a computer and Samsungís Kies desktop software.
The updates have made the Swype keyboard more responsive, addressed some connectivity issues, and fixed the automatic brightness. Presumably other, less known bug fixes have also made it into these updates.
The new firmware is rootable, so even if youíre into that sort of thing, you can flash without worryin
