Now you are able to install XXKH3 on your Samsung’s Galaxy S 2 and here I’d like to say that XXKH3 is the latest firmware to leak for your Samsung Galaxy S2. So, before you get started to follow the steps make sure that you have Backup your Apps and important data. In this regard Drivers are important, and if you’ve the proper drivers installed your work transform more easy.
DISCLAIMER: The below method is bit risky and we will not be held responsible if you lose data or your device gets damaged in the following of this guide so please proceed at your own risk.
Download the drivers from the links below:
You can also download XXKH3 from here and below are the steps that you can see…
Download the firmware from the link above and simply extract the downloaded file ‘I9100XXKH3.rar’ to get 7 files that you can see below:
- EFS_I9100XXKH3_CL479037_REV02_user_low_ship.tar.md5 [This file is of no use in this guide]
- GT-I9100-CSC-HOME-MULTI-OXAKH3.tar.md5 [This file is of no use in this guide]
- KERNEL_I9100XXKH3_CL479037_REV02_user_low_ship.tar.md5 [This file is of no use in this guide]
Now you need to download Odin3_v1.85.zip from here and then extract and to get these two required files – Odin3 v1.85.exe and Odin3.ini. Make in your mind that you have no need to delete the .ini file since it’s required too.
After doing the above steps keenly you need to disconnect your phone if it’s connected to PC.
Then simply you should Power Off your phone and also stay 5-6 seconds for vibration to verify complete Power off.
After this you need to place the Galaxy S 2 in Download Mode — press and hold these keys together that you can see below:
This is required to install the XXKH3 using Odin PC Software now you need to open Odin (from step 3) — Odin3 v1.85.exe. Admin privileges would be required!
Now just connect your phone to PC now. You should get the message “Added!!” under the Odin’s message box in the bottom left. If you don’t get this message, than probably there is a problem with drivers. Keep in mind seriously that you’ve the drivers installed previously before you get started — if not, use the link (s) given above in the pre-installation thoughts heading above. If you still don’t get ‘Added’ message, attempt one more USB port, or restart PC. You can also try installing the Kies software as a last resort, this should fix it.
Now you need to choose these files in Odin at respective tabs (check out the screenshot given at the top for help):
- Click the PDA Tab, and select CODE_I9100XXKH3_CL479037_REV02_user_low_ship.tar.md5 (from step 2.1)
- Click the Phone Tab, and select MODEM_I9100XXKH3_REV_02_CL1050544.tar.md5 (from step 2.6)
- Click the CSC Tab, and select GT-I9100-CSC-MULTI-OXAKH3.tar.md5 (from step 2.4)
- Click the PIT Tab, and select u1_02_20110310_emmc_EXT4.pit (from step 2.7)
Make sure these 3 checkboxes are ticked: Re-Partition, Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time. Since we’re using the .pit file, Re-Partition checkbox also needs to be ticked, otherwise not.
Now, strike the START button to begin the flashing process. When it finishes, your phone will automatically reboot — and you can unplug the cable then. Plus, you’ll get a PASS (with green background) message in the left-most box at the very top of the Odin. If it’s red and with FAIL written over it, the process flashing process wasn’t successful. You should attempt once more, and take care to not complete the whole process without any break whatsoever.
When the phone restarts, it will be running the latest Android OS, v2.3.4 with Samsung’s custom UI TouchWiz 4 atop it. Check out your phone’s android version here > Settings > About Phone.
