Hi guys & girls,
I'm just about to pick up a couple of S2's @ have a quick questing.

I'm purchasing them from Noel lemmings as great price for the sgs2 XT version. (Vodafone version $200 more)

However I plan to use them on vodafones network, I was assuming as the sgs2 was quad band there shouldn't be a problem, can anyone confirm this?

Really appreciate the help :)

I am almost completely certain you are correct and there is no actual difference, though are you sure these are the phones you want, there are newer more powerful models filtering through now. The HTC X is free on a 24 month contract with Telecom.

I gave it like 30 mins,? was still really bad.? Email messege coming up all the time about it crashing etc.? Did a wipe/factory reset and cleared all caches,? this instantly fixed all issues I was having.? Is running great now other than the total freeze requiring battery to be removed.? Has not done that for a while now so should be all good.

Thanks again.


Thats ok.

You didn't do the factory reset before flashing the rom, did you? That is why you had all the trouble.

Wipeing it AFTER the rom flash is ok, but you may lose some of the add on apps the rom's developer included if you do it that way. Always do it before a flash.

Sometimes you can get away with no wipeing, but in MY opinion you are only asking for trouble.

Got to the market and buy the full version of titanium backup, learn to use it. very useful, essential.

Anyway enjoy ICS.

Of course I did the wipe you told me to and so did the install instructions. I might have to start again from scratch then if a wipe after may have removed some stuff. Plus I am getting at least two freezes a day that require me to take out the battery.

I did do the reset because pretty sure you told me too and also the install instructions did as well.  I dunno why I went all screwy.

And yer I do have the full version of TI backup I have everything backed up now.  I think I will have to start from scratch again though as I dont want to lose any of the add on apps plus my phone now hard locks at least 2-3 times a day and requires me to remove the battery :/.

Edit... wait how do you do the wipe?  Is it not the wipe data/factory reset option.. if not then that Is prolly why I had all the issues.

I've had my SGS2 on both 2Degrees and Telecom.  Yes it's quad band.

As for new phones, you'll want to list your needs.  The OneX for example dosn't have a SD Card slot so if you need more storage then this will be a consideration.  The SGS2 is only 12 months old.  And the new phones will be coming out at full retail which may in turn drop the price of the "older" devices.

EDIT:  Specifications confirming quad band here.

Yeah im happy with 8, moreso with neak kernel as bln works nicely.


I don't know your method of download, but for a version 8 on XDA, the torrent file states v9.  Is that what you found? I'm unsure if they're in the process of updating the XDA thread to v9 or it's just a file naming error.   

V9 was released last night, based on LP4. 


Thanks Lee.  Downloading it now. Q: Did you beta test v9?  I don't know what has changed or been fixed/added. Anything that would be useful to know?  Cheers

Because Indie was heading away for two weeks holiday he didn't have time for Beta testing this time. I got a copy with just enough time to download, install and start testing before the general release. He really only had time to port the mods and themes, nothing extra for this one. Everything worked fine, although the scrolling seemed to stutter a little.

Would anyone who has had a decent run of Wanamlite and Omega like to comment on which one they prefer and why? I haven't tried Omega, been using Wanamlite since he started ICS builds.

Hi Neets,

I remember you helped me with my Galaxy S !! hopefully this S2 will be quicker (please not aa much lag)

Cheers for that, i had read the same thing but wanted to check they hadn't done anything with the firmware (or anything silly like that)

Picked up the S2 foe $630 (noel leemings) so for that price i cant justify any other phone in that price realm (i prefer to buy phones outright)


Cheers

I can't help you compare, other than to give a quick rundown of Omega. It's stock-based with all Samsung apps (no AOSP). You have the choice of three themes and a few mods (call recording, no increasing ringtone, mms/sms mods). It's usually pretty smooth, no fc's, and has good support.

I've used most versions of DarkyRom HD, Omega and Resurrection ICS roms.

The best thing is to make a nandroid/titanium back-up and try Omega. Test it for a few hours and if you don't like it switch back. I often do that to try new things, it's how I ended up with Omega in the first place.
