I9100XWLPD - France unlocked or unbranded version of Samsung Galaxy S II GT-1900 is now finally getting its official Ice Cream Sandwich firmware upgrade. The I9100XWLPD is an update from the current firmware if I'm not mistaken I9100XWKJ2 which is 2.3.5 that was released last year on October 2012, OMG! too long ago. This XWLPD is also currently being rolled out in some selected European countries like, Austria, Italy, Croatia, Netherlands, Nordic countries, Norway, Poland, Portugal and Slovenia. This firmware is reportedly the most stable ICS OS for the Galaxy S2, just being pushed out on some countries above to fix some minor bug issues including SOD (Sleep-Of-Death) problem according to some users that experience it.
