  1. Thank you very much. This worked perfectly. I was a little afraid that I might brick my phone as it had happened before with a different phone and ROM.
    I was able to upgrade my SGS2 SGH-I727R which comes originally from Rogers but was unlocked. I believe that due to the unlocking, Samsung Kies did not propose the firmware upgrade. But it worked quite well with Odin.

  2. Thank you so much. I update my rogers I727r 2.3.5 to 4.
