AT&T Galaxy S II Ice Cream Sandwich Update Now Available
It appears that the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II Ice Cream Sandwich roll out has finally arrived.
We have received a couple of tips that indicate that the AT&T Galaxy S II Ice Cream Sandwich update is now available through Samsung Kies, an update that will take the phone from Android 2.3 Gingerbread to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
It doesn’t appear as though the update is rolling out Over-the-Air which means that users will have to travel over to Samsung’s website, download Samsung Kies, and manually install the update that way.
It shouldn’t be too difficult of a process and the device should start running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in no time at all.
AT&T’s Samsung Galaxy S II Ice Cream Sandwich update comes shortly after T-Mobile released Ice Cream Sandwich for the Galaxy S II. Rogers, a carrier in Canada, rolled out its Galaxy S II Ice Cream Sandwich update today, also through Samsung Kies.
In addition to the features of Android 4.0 itself, we assume that the update will bring enhancements and bug fixes to owners of the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II. AT&T hasn’t provided a full changelog but we assume that the update will have some fixes on board, major Android updates generally do.
AT&T’s roll out means that Sprint Galaxy S II owners are now the only ones left waiting for Ice Cream Sandwich. Sprint has yet to give any specific plans as to the timing of the update which means that owners must still toil away not knowing when the update is going to arrive.
As for AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II owners, welcome to Android 4.0.
