U can upgrade to any firmware version u prefer. Just download the firmware manually from sammobile.com and flash via Odin.

Why not upgrade to JB?
I would advise against upgrading to 4.0.4 though. Please read about 'eMMC Brickbug' issue on 4.0.4.
Check it with the 'Got Brickbug?' app on XDA.

But if you insist on 4.0.4, u must flash a safe custom kernel!

Yup, JB not yet released for Pakistan. :(

You have three options:
1. Flash a generic unbranded Jellybean firmware for now. Then flash Pakistan JB when it comes.

2. Flash ICS 4.0.4 firmware, and flash a safe kernel (and read about Brickbug again).

3. Flash nothing and wait till JB Pakistan is released (it won't be long).

:)

Thats what I did before the Indian release came!

I will guide you to do that, but first..

Since you are obviously new to rooting and flashing, may I suggest you read:
Introduction to Android and Galaxy S2

Recovery and Download modes

How to flash stock firmwares using Odin

And don't forget to take an EFS backup too!! (Requires root)

Better safe than sorry!

I can't help you until u read about what you're going to do. :)

You don't need to be rooted to flash official JB. And I would advise you NOT TO try any of these stuff until u are sure of what is being done. Otherwise, you may end up bricking ur device! :)

Language problems huh?

That link is for installing a custom software (NeatRom), not for official software.

Mera urdu ithna achaa nahi hai.. lekin agar aapko kuch samajhne mein doubt hai, tho mein urdu me bataaoonga..

Do you want to install that given in the website, or do you want to install official samsung jellybean?
