Default [AUSTRALIAN THREAD] Galaxy S II 4G LTE (I9210T) help/root/updates etc

mods please relocate this post if in wrong area; could not find SGS2 4G forum. If not, please delete this comment!

Hey guys,

I'm hoping we can try keeping this thread for those who have the I9210 SGS2 phone, which is really only going to be the I9210T (Telstra) model which is 4G compatable; has a bigger screen; a better processor and NFC chip. I'm excited getting stuck into this device; have not had much of a play with it yet.

GSMarena Specs, user comments and pics here:
http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_gala...i9210-4124.php

For the latest FIRMWARES or info on UNLOCKING device:
Sign up/sign in and search on www.samfirmware.com

Causing a fuss helps; I managed to get this phone today on $59 CAP without paying the MRO $5 per mth and also had over $250 of previous contract termination fees fully waived; so think i have done well there.

Right now I just want to root this phone safely and where possible, get unbranded firmware (i hate all of telstra's locked apps) whilst maintaining all of Tesltra's functionalities with this phone and modem, so that i don't notice any difference in 4G access speeds...


If you have any useful tips, tricks, videos, manuals (etc), link or post them and I'll see if i can add them to this post. If you respond to this thread confirming you have the same phone in Australia and on the Telstra network, i'll add your details here:

This device has a Snapdragon and the GT-I9100 has an Exynos, so they are 2 completely different devices.

I don't believe XDA has a forum for this device, so I moved it to Android General.

Thanks

Hey Roosta,

There is a few of us out here now who have this phone. Myself, i got mine the first day it was released.


Rooting instructions can be found here:
http://forums.overclockers.com.au/sh....php?t=1022750

A few people have complained about the bottom buttons not working after rooting. I did not have this issue. The instructions i followed (which was prior to the release of the OCAU instructions above) were for the ATT Skyrocket. Link here:

Thanks lunchbox, but with the success rate very low from those users who have tried ROOT, i am a bit hesitant trying out the method; especially with MULTIPLE people losing 2 of the 3 front phone buttons.

So you have used the American version and instructons STEP FOR STEP to root the I9210T Aussie stock phone with their files, and it worked no problems?

Anyone else tried and can they share their choice of guide and/or files where the result was a SUCCESS for the aussie stocked version of this phone?

Hey guys,

Thought you'd wanna know i have been playing with the T989 ROMS.


Just installed the SlickMOD supreme 3.5 and it worked.

Link here to ROM: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1596790

Take note of instructions. Also the bottom buttons didn't work until after a reboot or two.



DO A NANDROID BACKUP. SAVED MY BUTT MANY TIMES!!!!!!!!!

My steps were to install the CWM recovery file supplied from the AT&T thread through Odin. Once phone restarted i went to the market and downloaded the SU file and busybox from there. Thats all i did and it worked without any problems.

Hey guys. quick update. I managed to get my phone replaced by Telstra putting the "buttons not working" issue described and linked-to above, as i bit the bullet, had a go and couldn't get the same outcome as xrobau or lunchbox. I recommend anyone with SGS2 4G does not attempt root until we have a 100% fullproof method working for all who follow a tutorial step for step, OR until ICS is released.

Smile Theme for Stock Telstra ROM

Hi Guys,

I have knocked up a theme for the stock Telstra ROM.

It includes the lidroid 14 button mod, a modified Google Play and some general ICSifying of the ROM.

Still very much a work in progress (eg, fix colour of clock in status bar), however I though I would get it out there!

Cheers,

Gary







You can grab the CWM flashable zip file here:
