Ubuntu and T-Mobile Samsung Exhibit II 4G Firmware Update

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – Samsung's Kies does not work with Linux or Ubuntu. I have Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit and I have been able to use Air Kies and my USB cable to connect to my Samsung Exhibit II 4G phone (not the same as the Samsung Exhibit S II or Exhibit II S phone! No S!!) and access all the information on it. However, I have not been able to request a firmware update. I have Gingerbread Android on it as is, out of the box. There seems to be information leading me to believe that Ice Cream Sandwich may be available to update my firmware to. Is this true, and how do I get this firmware update if I cannot use Samsung (HowTos)
