        Hi my ace was brought from singapore .i am in chennai-india. came with froyo.upgraded to 2.3.3. through kies.worked fine till now. today upgraded through kies to 2.3.6.could not connect to wifi. broadband is working fine on PC.broadband service is from BSNL. they say they cannot do anything because the connection to PC is working fine so it is the fault of the firmware upgrade.my ace is not rooted, not using sim. do not want to root. samsung customer care says this upgrade should not be done through kies and should be done at their service center and i should pay for it as it was brought from singapore and the warranty does not apply here. anyway i do not have the warranty as it was a gift.is there anyway i can go back to the2.3.3 version without going to the service centre. i am not well versed in technical matters and would appreciate a step by step guide

  3. after installing one click its asking for driver installation, after successfully installing driver oneclick java again asking for driver and it showing as failed!! please help. kindly give your contact number

  4. I have a galaxy s2 i777 and I’d like to update to 2.3.6. I’m having trouble getting into download mode. I was able to do it last night, testing it, but ever since, unable to. When I hold down volume up and down key, home key and power button, it just powers up. Did I do something wrong when I put it in download mode yesterday and then exited out??

      hi is your phone is working then you can kies. i think for S2 android released the latest ice cream sandwich version. it is better than 2.3.6 version. here is the link to download KIES. kies is a software which you can get latest updates for your Samsung smartphone. i recommend best way update android version is kies. you need a windows or mac to down load kies. I will give you the video link.

    its also not being detected by pc. please help

  29. hai my at&t samsubg galexy 2 glass is broken . can it be replaced in chennai

  30. I understand how helpful that any of you who has provided advice are trying to be.. and I’ve tried those methods… only thing is, is I don’t know how any of them are supposed to work when my power button is no good. I mean, The power button isn’t stuck inside its not physically broken. Thing is, is the button sits there; any regular button, and it wont turn on, its fully charged. I dont know what it is. So, if there is anyone here, who has experienced the same difficulty and over came it, or know the solution please get back to me here: [email protected] . Though you should know that this has been going on a while and I just never knew what to do. What I have done continuously and obliviously since then is push POWER + HOME + VOLUME UP. This has worked well for a while, it only worked while it was connected to the charger, when the charge completed. Now my phone has been off for 4 days without any sign of it coming on anytime soon. If you have any advice please notify me. Any help is appreciated.
    Merci :)

      You mean your phone is not booting in download mode either ? if so, your phone is hard bricked, go to service center.
