Hi Everyone.

I'm an Android amateur. Basically I want to install the official ICS software on my galaxy s2 Orange UK phone now that it is out, however, because I have flashed it previously, Kies says "Your device does not support software upgrading via Kies"

I want to use the links on this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1113928

and the specific links I need are these:
BVKJ4:http://www.multiupload.com/U92KWLX188
Firmware info: PDA:BVKJ4|PHONE:BVKJ4|CSC:eek:RAKJ4

BVKJ4 Stock Kernel: http://www.multiupload.com/5QK0QAI2SF
Password: intratech@XDA


However Multiupload is down and I can't access the downloads?!

Please please please help me!!

Flash the Orange firmware via Odin or download it via Checkfus .

First of all you are going back to GB from ICS so you will need to flash the old bootloader before you flash the firmware to avoid bootloops.Follow these steps.
1.Unzip file from below to get the old bootloader tar. file first.
2.Open Odin and put the tar. file in PDA and connect phone.Without selecting anything else hit START and it will take about 4-5 seconds.
3.When done disconnect phone and let it boot and then turn it off and boot to download ready to flash firmware.
4.Flash this -2.3.6 GB Orange U.K (cant find the other one)
http://www.hotfile.com/dl/152491674/...1_ORA.zip.html
This version has no root kernel but if you want to flash via kies you wont need it anyway.Now update via Kies.

ALTERNATIVE WAY............................................... ...................................

Latest official kies release for Orange U.K

http://www.hotfile.com/dl/153501669/...B_ORA.zip.html

CF-Root kernel if you want to root

http://download.chainfire.eu/143/CF-...-v5.2-CWM5.zip
This is and older kernel and could give problems mounting storage.At the moment there is no specific CF kernel for you unless you want to try a different one or SuperOneClick (not a good idea)

OTHER OPTION,
U.K. and Ireland unlocked Kies official latest release.Kies will still work but if you dont have a factory unlocked phone then the updates wont work anymore untill you reflash your carrier ICS firmware.

http://www.hotfile.com/dl/153177481/...5_XEU.zip.html

CF-Root kernel (stable)

http://download.chainfire.eu/158/CF-...-v5.4-CWM5.zip

@ cooza
you do not need to flash boot loaders when you flash using Odin.
You don't need to flash boot loaders even when you flash using cwm.
You get boot loops when you go from ics to GB with out wiping.

True that its not really needed for Odin but thought Id post it anyway.Ive suggested this to people with bootloops who have tried everything and still have one and it has been the only thing thats worked when going from GB to ICS via CWM and in a couple of occassions via Odin also.More senior members than me also recommend it.It may just be luck or may not but Ive never seen it fail.If he does it nothing bad will happen to his phone anyway.

cooza you really dont need that,
bootloops fixed by right kernel's, wipe's, or best formating system partitions :P
