Either download and instal Samsung KIES from here or use the phones OTA feature to update.

Menu> Settings> About phone> Software update> Check for update.

@5teven
I had a similar issue and the drive mode error looks like it's caused by a usb connector fault. Some people managed to fix it by cleaning out the port with an air duster. I ended up taking it back to the shop for repair. It also caused weird charging issues.

What if that all does not help?
I am having the same problem with fast battery drain. Started to happen suddenly about 3 weeks after ICS upgrade. Battery is flat within 7 hours and does not charge to 100% anymore. And voice command keeps starting up all the time and I cannot stop it. I even had to remove the app.

I tried factory data reset twice which didn't change anything. Battery is still crap. I love my phone but I hate ICS.
Any idea what else I could try to get my battery life back to normal again? Thanks

As mentioned by CNJ above, apps and data from Gingerbread can have adverse effects on ICS so I recommend this as the first point of call for all users experiencing issues with the update.
You will lose any unsynced user data like contacts, calendar events unless synced with Google and you will loose apps and their data like games etc.
There are applications available to back up your device like My back up and if your rooted Titanium Back Up, only the latter will be able to back up app data like Angry Birds etc.
For non rooted devices I'd recommend installing two really usefull apps:

SMS Backup & Restore by Ritesh Sahu - SMS back up and restore application, with the addon you can schedule back ups and sync with Dropbox.

App List Backup by Pun Software - with this you can easily remember what apps you had installed in your device before the reset. Open the app before the reset and select Back up, the so generates a list which it access to your SD card. Once the device is reset, instal App List Backup from the Play store and launch for that list to reinstall your apps. Tapping each app in the list will send you to the market.

The are other applications on Google Play, just search.

There are newer versions of Samsung ICS being released to iron out some of the bugs so if you haven't already, try an OTA update search or KIES to see if your device has an updated firmware release.

If you wanted you could update yourself to a Generic Samsung ICS if your region or carrier/provider hasn't provided a recent update.

As for going back to Gingerbread, it is totally possible although as with the above if not researched/done properly it could damage your device.

Any questions, please ask?

Several. The biggest one is that my Samsung Galaxy SII no longer recognizes the presence of any blue tooth device whatsoever. I have put three different blue tooth devices next to it, all turned on, and the phonse says there are no blue tooth devices in the vicinity.

Lots of my user preferences disappeared. And some of my contacts or some of their data have disappeared.

I hate ICS. We tried a Samsung Nexus and turned it in for a second Galaxy SII. Now they shoved it down my throat on my SII as well. It is possible to roll back to prior operating system without losing all contact info and apps?


"As for going back to Gingerbread, it is totally possible although as with the above if not researched/done properly it could damage your device.

So that's my question. How to go back to Gingerbread? Without losing contacts. I can reload apps with much less effort so that's not as big a deal. I do have a backup but a lot of my contacts don't get backed up I guess, because not Google folks.

Here you go, my guide to rolling back to Gingerbread.

https://www.galaxys2forums.com/index.php?topic=6532.0

EDIT: Sorry, just realized you have a Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G from another post.
I'll get back to you as to whether this method will work on your device.

EDIT2: Have a look this, can't guarantee it'll work but worth a look.
I would recommend doing this unless you are sure, either sure it won't brick your device or sure you not bothered if it does.

I take no responsibility for anything you do to your device!

Hi Folks: I found a solution that I love - it gave me back the phone that was my reliable right hand resource: http://www.androidauthority.com/gala...irmware-93958/ Follow the directions if you like gingerbread better than ICS. I did it yesterday and it worked like a charm. Plus it rooted my phone, giving me more flexibility with gingerbread going forward. Yeah!
