Android 2.3.4 is installed successfully on Samsung Galaxy S II using some unofficial tools, as reported by XDA Developers forums. The official Android 2.3.4 is yet to be released but this leaked version works on Galaxy S II without any problem. Above all, the method which is used in this technique is very simple and even an ordinary android user who have little knowledge of rooting, unlocking, and installing unofficial adnroid versions can perform it.
Android 2.3.4 is the minor version of Gingerbread. Gingerbread was released in December last year while introducing many new features in it like improved copy-paste, UI, new download manager etc.
Android 2.3.4 won’t bring many new features. It bring fixes related to Voice Calling and Video along with battery improvement. However, I think Google may include some support elements for Google+ in this release.
Here is how you can install this leased version of Android 2.3.4 on your Galaxy S II device.
Step 1: First of all download the required files:
- Download SuperCore
- Download DarkyROM2 XXKG1 BASE R2 DEODEXED CWM
- Download STOCK XXKG1 ODIN Firmware
Step 2: Now install SuperCore with ODIN.
Step 3: Boot your device and upload DarkyROM2 zip folder to internal SD card.
Step 4: Reboot your device into recovery mode by using Volume-up, Home and Power buttons.
Step 5: While using the recovery Menu, select DarkyROM 2 zip and install it.
Step 6: Reboot Samsung Galaxy S II and enjoy Android 2.3.4 on it.
- This ROM installs without wiping your data, if you want to wipe, put a folder/file called “wipe” inside /sdcard/Darky folder.(Do not use wipe/factory reset from CWM!)
- If you want to experience a lighter and faster version (lots of apps removed) create file/folder “no-samsung” inside /sdcard/Darky folder
- If you want to not install Swype, create file/folder “no-swype” inside /sdcard/Darky folder
