    just read this ,

    "Just reporting back for anyone who might find this. I didn't go down the re-flashing route but instead tried disabling a few applications. Was still having 1-3 switchings off a day (for 5days) until I disabled Easy Battery Saver and since then (about 3.5 days ago) all has been fine.

    now I've deleted this app....at 11am ....hopefully it might be this simple..keep you updated.

    those battery saver apps are bobbins anyway, they never work. Hope it stops the restarts for you though.

    Hi Nige

    The version is 2.3.4, the phone is on Orange, I have checked for updates a few times, but nothing seems to have come through, my bro is on Orange and has a HTC and he updated to ICS a couple of months ago now.

    Mate thats old hat, I have an S2 & its running 4.03, go here mate, SamMobile.com | Everything for your Samsung Mobile | SamMobile sign up, goto firmware, search for I9100 & see list, should find orange listed, make sure you read any notes, you'll need a pit file, odin & the fw file, make sure you read it fully, been doing droid updates for ages now, fairly simple.

    The samsung OTA, Kies & Orange are effing useless mate trust me, Orange are terrible for updates to handsets.

    Although I have an Android phone, this is what annoys me most...how long phones take to get updated. Far too many good phones are using very old OS's, and the newest ones will run fine on them.

    But newer firmware has hardware contraints aswell, so its not all plain sailing & some just arent upto the latest versions anyway, so in one hand I agree, but on other I understand the reasoning behind.

    Look at iphone 3g using the newer fw's, v4 was a headache for allot of people, slow as hell, 313 was good(ish)

    Can you show me a screenshot of the about phone page so I can see kernel etc, as 4.04 is known to have issues in specific circumstances, but as its working then you havnt been in this category that would be affected.

    You will probably need to root it and manually update it. That's all part of the fun though ;) get yourself on xda developers forum.

    Yeah I use a few, xda is one, but thats the issue, rooting a 4.04 is part of the issue that can brick the S2, so beware.
