Question [Q] SHV-E120S Samsung Galaxy S2 HD LTE

Hello,

I bought Samsung Galaxy S2 HD LTE (SHV-E120S)

it's Unlocked,

but When I want to update phone from
"Settings > About Phone > Software update > Update"

I get this message:
"Failed to software update. Use SKT USIM to progress update."

Is there a solution for this problem?



Also,
Can I add Spanish language for keyboard? How?
and, Is there ICS update for this's phone?


Thank you for helping!

But when I use Kies to update, it shows on screen that, the device does not support using kies for update.

Why? any special techniques to deal with it?

Default Only GPRS?

I bought an SHV-F120K to be used in an 900Mhz carrier however I only got GPRS? I used it before with a galaxy nexus without any problem. It is some software to change this situation?

thanks

Exclamation Galaxy s2 hd lte shv-120l

GALAXY S2 HD LTE SHV-120L
It hangs during call
It drops the call
while I try to dial it says the message "not registered on network" and after some time it again gets connected to the network but during call 90% of the time it delivers problematic calling experience...

If a factory reset doesn't help you then visit the thread on Rootzwiki for the firmware that you are looking for
XiaoMi 2 - System 1: MIUI V5 (miuiandroid) System 2: JLB 14.0 (rooted)

Default SHV-E120S how to update to 4.0.4

What I did is to first use the ODIN to install the rooted kernals (you could find in XDA links). Use the standar ODIN procedure and clear the cache.
Then use the market enabler app to set your region to S.Korea. As the market enabler need to have a root permission.
Make sure that once you set this, you do not open the Google play or do anything, other than connecting to Kies.
Kies will show you the latest update for your device, go ahead & update. Welcome to ICS.

I used the ODIN to move to a rooted kernal since any root procedure in the internet was not helping me to get the phone rooted.
PS: Try at your own risk. Though I do not see any problem to happen in between other than the ODIN flash. I suppose I took the rooted tegrak kernal.
Also one more tip, if after the root Kies is not detecting the phone, try the procedures to un-root the phone & retry.
