Factory reset didn't work on mine. To revert back I have to root my phone and void my warrenty. ICS is garbage, it compleatly killed my signel. On top of theat rogers added a crap load of more usles bloteware.

download the official rogers GB rom

 

flash with Odin3

 

and voila you have stock rogers GB 

 

do not need a rooted device with this method, just know how to go into download mode (power button + volume down after boot)

I too am having issues with the 4.0.4 ICS update from Rogers. My phone occassionaly won't connect to my wifi and I have to turn the wifi toggle off and on to fix it.

 

Also if I attempt to power off the phone it gets stuck on the red rogers splash screen. I am then forced to unplug the battery from the phone. The same is true if I try to restart the phone. It was fine for the first week.  I did a factory reset/ restore which fixed the issue but it came back.

to flash with odin3 you need to put your phone into download mode

to do that when you start your phone hold down the volume down key and power button till you get a warning screen (this is ok)

press volume down again to enter download mode

plug in your usb cable to your computer than to your phone

open odin3

make sure PARTITION is NOT CHECKED if it is you will HARD BRICK your phone and not even a jig will save your phone

click the PDA button, and locate the file you want to flash

now if odin reconized your phone it should say something like [com:3] or along those lines

than click flash and it'll do its thing, itll than tell you if it passed or failed and reboot your device (99.9% it passes ive had it fail once due to a bad download)

and voila your back on stock rogers

did odin say pass?

did you load the .tar file into the PDA section?

are you sure you were in download mode and not recovery mode?

sometimes it can take a device up to 10min to rebuild it's cache after having a new rom installed so that could be why it's taking so long

as well you do have the samsung galaxy s2 LTE SGH-I727R right?

Hey all. yes i have rogeres samsung galaxy s2 lte. i did use the exact firmware from sammobile. i did use odin3 and i even passed. exact same problem as soondai14.

then what i did. i download the ics firmware from sam mobile. i flashed it again with odin3 and i passed again. so i was back to ics. but after the restart it was giving me error again. same kinda message. then what i did i managed to go the setting and restore the phone to the factory setting. thats how i am able to use the phone (on ics unfortunatly). well at least fone is  working. i tthink i made the big mistake by trying to go back  to GB and then after ICS. i should have not tried to go back to gb. well i hope to get JB asap.
