How To Install DXLP7 For SGS2 - Official ICS ROM

Posted by Ticehuac Acuauhtli On Saturday, March 24, 2012 14 comments


DXLP7 is not perfect and still has a few bugs. With that being said, it is near-perfection if you want to install an official ICS ROM. If you don't like Touchwiz, don't bother trying this. I myself am not in-love with Touchwiz but I've always liked its reliability.


[ Update: DXLP7 Rooting Guide ]


Well, enough of the chit chat. Just a few reminders before you install this ROM:
  1. DXLP7 is a stable release but still has a few bugs which you can see here.
  2. DXLP7 or any official ICS ROM will break your root. 
  3. Installing DXLP7 won't increase your flash counter or break its warranty.
  4. The DXLP7 firmware available for download in this post is a multi-CSC package. CSC determines region-specific settings (APN configuration, carrier branding, etc.). The CSCs found in DXLP7 are for the following regions: Philippines, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. These things are important if you still want to claim your warranty. 
  5. Setting aside number 5, anyone can install this ROM if you're not so much of a control freak. DXLP7 supports multiple languages.
  6. The DXLP7 Firmware available for download is a wipe version which means it will delete all of your phone data.
  7. Charge your phone to at least 60% but 100% is better.
How To Install DXLP7 On Your SGS2
  1. Download: DXLP7 Firmware | ODIN v1.85
  2. Install ODIN on your computer.
  3. Unzip the downloaded DXLP7 firmware. Password: intratech@XDA. You should see a .md5 file
  4. Launch ODIN on your computer and select PDA. Select the .md5 file you unzipped (File name: GT-I9100_XTC_I9100DXLP7_I9100OLBLP7_I9100DXLP7.tar.md5). Now, don't click anything else on ODIN.
  5. Turn off your phone.
  6. Switch your phone to download mode by pressing Volume down + Power button. When prompted, press Volume up to confirm.
  7. Connect your SGS2 to your computer using a USB cable. The message "Added" should appear on ODIN and this small box on the upper left must turn yellow.
  8. On ODIN, click Start and wait for it to finish.
  9. Once ODIN is done flashing, the green box on the upper left will turn green and say "PASS".
  10. Your phone will reset instantly. You're SGS2 is now on DXLP7 Ice Cream Sandwich :-)
If you want to root DXLP7, please read the separate post I made for it :-)

  5. Why after I update the firmware the phone lock just won't work. Like the pattern unlock and all that stuff.

  6. @Anonymous: That is strange. Try doing a complete wipe, and then flash again. Maybe that'll work.
