- first navigate to the settings -> about phone -> kernel version on your device and find out the kernel version. note the string that is listed there. for example it might look something like .6.35.7-i9100xxkg1-cl349526. in this example what matters the most is the bold part of the string (kg1) while you can ignore the remaining start/end parts of this string.
- now try to find the matching kernel, firmware, modem etc. matching (or closest) to this 3-letter substring (e.g. kg1). for example if you cannot find the kg1 firmware that is an exact match for your samsung galaxy sii (s2) then try your luck with the closest match kg2 for example.
