    Samsung Galaxy S II updated: Swype swiftness, auto-brightness fix

    Samsung’s Galaxy S II may be fresh to the market, but that hasn’t stopped the company’s engineers from pushing out updates. In fact, we’ve seen two firmware updates arrive through Samsung’s Kies app in short order, bringing the GSII up to i9100XWKE2.



    The first left Swype more responsive and apparently also addressed some connectivity issues, while the second fixed the Galaxy S II’s automatic brightness. The firmware is also rootable, which is good news for those looking forward to all the third-party hacks we’re promised.

    You’ll need to hook your Galaxy S II up to Kies in order to download the update.

    Whether they release Mac version or not just download virtual box and Ubuntu. Both are free and you will then be able to use the Samsung kies mini. If not then download windows xp.

    This allows you to run multiple operating systems on one computer.

    Kies sucks. Try ODIN instead.
