How to flash/install I9100XXKI3 Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread on Samsung Galaxy S2 via Odin

Here's the step by step guide on how to update or upgrade the Samsung Galaxy S II to Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread with the firmware build version I9100XXKH3 and multi-CSC OXAKI3. This guide is a manual flashing by way of using Odin multi-downloader tool.

Some changes on the I9100XXKI3 Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread gathered from most users who already flashed it via XDA forum.

- the vibration notification icon is always shown when vibration is enabled. it's smart also, because the user can see than vibration on !
- instead of the apple patented overscrolling, there's now that ugly blue overscrol effect 
- the homescreen cycles now, if you're at your last homescreen you will jump to the first one and vice versa (looks a bit awkward due to the background "reset")
it's NEW blue overscrol effect ! and I love it ! it's much sexy OVERSCROL than we got before
- It's super smooth and responsive, font smoothing is also improved.
- Definitely better than previous releases.
