Rogers Samsung Galaxy S II Ice Cream Sandwich Update Now Available

While most owners of the American version of the Samsung Galaxy S II sit and wait for the Ice Cream Sandwich update release date to arrive, owners of the Rogers Samsung Galaxy S III have seen its Ice Cream Sandwich update roll out.

MobileSyrup is reporting that owners of the Rogers Samsung Galaxy S III can now access the device’s Ice Cream Sandwich update when using Samsung’s Kies application. It doesn’t appear as though the update is rolling out Over-the-Air, at least not yet, so this is currently the only way to get the update for Galaxy S II owners who wish to upgrade from Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

Those who own one will want to head to Samsung’s website to download Kies which will then allow for the Android 4.0 download and installation to occur.

It appears that the update takes Galaxy S II owners to Android 4.0.4 which is the newest version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and which is something that should be welcomed by device owners.

The update should come with all of the features of Android 4.0 and it should also bring about some enhancements and fixes that Rogers has seemingly yet to detail. Most major Android updates bring fixes and enhancements to shore up issues that users were having on the prior piece of software.

Rogers’ roll out comes shortly after T-Mobile rolled out Ice Cream Sandwich to its Galaxy S II and it comes before the Android 4.0 update to the variants on AT&T, Sprint and Verizon.

None of those carriers have announced a specific roll out date for Ice Cream Sandwich but we expect them to do so at some point soon.

For those that own the Rogers Galaxy S II though, the update is now available.

    Ice Cream I installed 4.0.3 and it has several bugs unfortunately.
    Wi Fi is trying to signal several times
    The screen is light where the shortcut home, search, back, there are times that lights and other times not.
    Skype drops the signal all the time.
    I hope that solve the problem of bug, because I’m really disappointed.

    I updated my S II on Rogers and my green phone icon disappeared.So far I am about 50/50 on the change with the new keyboard being the biggest issue other than the missing icon.

    Does anyone know where/how to get it back?

    I just updated my GS II to the 4.0.4 and now I can’t receive all my media texts, battery drains faster and my swype keyboard doesn’t work anymore. I want the old version back!! Anyone else have these issues?

      I’m still on gingerbread trying hard to get ics. My Kies keeps telling me my device can’t be upgraded. I’m on the SGH-I777. I’m reading that your all having issues. Have they been fixed? And are any of you using my model? Also how did you update the system? Samsung told me Kies has issues with windows 7. What operating system are you all running
      Any help is appreciated

    I have my rogers sII plugged in right now. I have it connected to Kies. I have started the firmware upgrade, but it keeps telling me that my battery is low(it is telling me this while its connected to the computer charging) I did read somewhere that your phone needs to be at least 50%. If upgrading OS is this hard for Android, I will switch back to iPhone next time! One simple plug into computer and start iTunes and update. Done!
