Galaxy S II has once again found its way into the clutches of the XDA Developer Forums and the new version, Android 2.3.4 adds one notable change from the previous version. As with any private release, it has already leaked onto the Internet, and if you have a Samsung Galaxy S II. This is nothing more than a point-release and t introduces two long-awaited improvements: video and voice conferencing support in Google Talk and much-improved battery life. A member at a well-known Android message board has written very clear instructions on how to set up Android 2.3.4 on your Phone. All you need is a Samsung Galaxy S II and some knowledge on how Android works.

You can download SuperCore 1.0 kernel from here, DarkyROM2 from here and the STOCK XXKG1 ODIN firmware from here. As a bonus, this process will keep your phone’s settings intact, unless you specify by adding a folder named “wipe” /file to /sdcard/Dark. Android 2.3 first became available to developers in December of last year and has made its way onto some Android smartphones ever since. This version of Android, codenamed “Gingerbread”, includes improvements to the Copy and Paste feature, user interface refinements and a new Download Manager that allows users to have access to the files they’ve downloaded from their web browser or other Internet-connected apps, among others. Google Talk being built into a phone can have several interesting ramifications, including the elimination of the need for a connection to a cellular network in the long run, assuming that the user manages to get all their contacts to move over to Google’s service and that Wi-fi became more universal than it is today, which is unlikely to happen just yet.
