Samsung Offers Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Upgrade for GALAXY S II

SEOUL, Korea – March 13, 2012 – Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., the global leader in Android™ smartphones, today announced the availability of Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) software upgrade for GALAXY S II. The upgrade will begin in the European countries including Poland, Hungary, and Sweden, as well as Korea today and gradually roll out to other markets. Android 4.0 ICS software upgrade for GALAXY Note, GALAXY SII LTE, GALAXY R, GALAXY Tab 7.0 Plus, 7.7, 8.9 and 10.1 will follow soon.

Samsung Electronics has completed upgrading the GALAXY devices to Gingerbread last year by providing software upgrades to both Froyo and Gingerbread. With the ICS upgrade, Samsung Electronics has solidified its position as the leader of Android devices.

Samsung Electronics will also offer Android 2.3 Gingerbread firmware upgrades for GALAXY S, GALAXY Tab 7", GALAXY S Plus, GALAXY S SCL(Super Clear LCD), and GALAXY W from end of March. The firmware upgrades for GALAXY S, for example, include Face Unlock, Snapshot, Photo Editor and others.

"We expect that our customers will enjoy an enhanced experience with their GALAXY device through this upgrade. Samsung is committed to satisfying our customer needs", said JK Shin, President of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics.

The availability and scheduling of the software upgrade and specific models upgradable to Android 4.0 will vary by market and wireless carriers' requirements.

Crazeuk,

If you have the technical skills, the XDA developer's forum has full 'walk you through' instructions for downloading the official ROM for the GT-i9100 and flashing/installing it -
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1544487

If you do flash the new ROM, let us know what you think of it !

Oh, and if you want to root your new ICS, there's a download which includes a rooted kernel and Odin to flash it ....

Am i likely to lose the data behind my apps? (i.e. the databases?)
I have far too many with lots of data in them.

Finally Android 4.0.3 ICS is coming. But I was heard that ICS itself has some internal issue or bug even Google's own Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus also having the issue from ICS.

Is it worth to update ?? Or just wait for another few more updates then only update ??
Because currently I have no issue and very smooth running on my SGS2 running 2.3.6

Thanks.
