You can now update your Samsung Galaxy S II to Android 2.3.4
The Samsung Galaxy S II might be flying like hotcakes off store shelves, but it still hasn't made its US debut. That doesn't stop it from getting the latest of Android Gingerbread, though, as folks over at SamFirmware got their hands on a leaked firmware update to Android version 2.3.4 with a build date of July 5th.

This update is a minor one, but if you're interested in features like enabled video calls in Google Talk, better battery life, improved reception and patched security holes, you won't be disappointed after spending a few minutes to manually update your phone. Of course, you can wait for Samsung to officially release it, but it's anyone's guess as to when it will come. Trying it on your own though carries some risks and you may void your warranty, so proceed with caution. Check out the download links below for the files you need and instructions about how to install them.

No es cierto!... el Samsung Galaxy S II (i9100) aun no está disponible en México con ningun proveedor (el cual supongo más adelante será Telcel).... te estás confundiendo de teléfono o de modelo de Samsung amigo...

Una disculpa, tienes toda la razón, efectivamente ya está en México el SGII junto con el SGPlus....... PERO...... el SGII es una versión disminuída con tan solo 2GB internos (y quien sabe que cosas de menos traiga, ya ni quize preguntar jeje)

The one in México is just a diminished version with only 2GB internal memory, not bad, but almost everybody needs real space on their phones!

I've had mine since the end of April, It's an awesome phone, I plug my phone Into my PC everyday and load up KIES to see If 2.3.4 Is out. I live In the UK with an unlocked GS2. FYI Samsung have updated this phone's firmware a few times since I've had It so It looks like they are listening to customers.
