Does anybody Know will Samsung or T-mobile Release the Ics (Ice Cream Sandwich ) 4,0?
and I also Heard On December 12 that there's an update ROlling out today But i haven't Gotten Mines yet it says no updates currently at ths time has anyone else Gotten the Update yet ?
I haven't, but I would check Samsung Kies software. Its a software similier to iTunes but for Samsung devices. This software is made to do the updates manually rather than waiting for the carrier push which could take months because it is based on IMEI numbers.
I haven't either but that would be awesome if they do this week!
So, I tried to update through Samsung Kies and it said my device was already up to date. Maybe we will get the update tomorrow?
Yeah, and Santa's gonna deliver it.
OK OK OK... OP (denn90), the ICS update is not coming for a long time, no need to keep refreshing your update button. There may be an update soon regarding wifi calling - it came out yesterday for the HTC Amaze 4G, but not yet for our device. Hopefully soon, though. Kies is a great program, but we're not going to get an ICS update straight from Samsung until T-Mobile has one ready, which won't be until *well* into 2012 if history has taught us anything about OTA android updates.
Speculation is that it will be release mid 1st quarter, now whether this is correct or not it makes sence. Everyone is wanting ICS and I am sure Google is aware of it and working to port it over. I am surprised that the SGSII would not get it for Christmas because it surpases the Galaxy Nexus in performance. I am hopeful because Samsung has made the last two Pure Google devices and most likely already have there hands on ICS to port over.
But remember, any firmware update will come through Samsung Kies first because the carriers send the updates in batches based on IMEI numbers. I know people that still haven't gotten the Gingerbread update when there particular device has been pushed the update to everyone with the same device.
Nice read....I will be happy if we get it next month or Feb.
OK it's Feb 16, 2012. Where's ICS update for the Galaxy S II?
At last word, it'll be the end of March, but that's likely for the international version, not the T-Mobile version (which is different). Stop worrying about when it will get here or you'll drive yourself nuts. The phone is great just the way it is. Whenever we get an update, it'll be a nice bonus. These things take time.
Yep you're right. Probably no big deal anyway. Thx.
Also, just so everyone can be prepared for this frustration, ours is probably going to be the last GS2 model to get it. Not only does ours use a different processor, but T-Mobile has to add in wifi calling and all that, then of course test it extensively, which seems to take longer for T-Mo than other carriers (probably because they just don't have the $ to do it quickly). So just be ready to watch others get it first. Deep breaths, all.
You convinced me to go ahead and root my phone. Now I just have to wait for motivation to strike and I'm just going to do it. No point in waiting at all. Just none. The custom ROMs out there are just awesome from what I have been reading and the lacking bloatware and CarrierIQ? What's to think about any more?
