Vodafone Samsung Galaxy S2 Official Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich Firmware Upgrade Stock ROM (I9100BULPC)

Here’s the available stock ROMs for Samsung Galaxy S II GT-I9100 with Vodafone carrier. This ROMs are all original and unmodified official Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich pulled from Samsung Kies server. This may only useful to manually upgrade your Vodafone Galaxy S2 I9100 devices using Odin downloader tool,  just in-case you are having issues  upgrading via OTA (over the air) or Kies.  Some may encounter problems and cannot upgrade for some reasons due to installing custom ROM and or rooted devices.  So, the only option is using the manual method called Odin flashing, as prepared by some advance users.

NOTE: If your Vodafone Galaxy S2 currently still running in Official firmware I9100BUKJ3 2.3.6 Gingerbread and without doing anything about it like modding and rooting, I highly recommend you to update on Kies or via OTA (Over the air) only.
