The AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II Ice Cream Sandwich update is available once again.
The update is now available through Samsung Kies, a few days after AT&T pulled the update because it wasn’t finished testing the software. Fortunately, it looks like everything is good to go and the Ice Cream Sandwich software can now be pulled from Kies.
Late last week, Galaxy S II owners on AT&T were able to pull the update. However, shortly afterward, the update mysteriously vanished leaving many device owners wondering what had happened to Android 4.0.
AT&T clarified the situation saying that it was just testing the update and that the software would return to Samsung Kies soon. Turns out, the carrier wasn’t lying and Ice Cream Sandwich did, in fact, return soon.
Keep in mind, Samsung Kies is the only way to get the software. AT&T and Samsung are not rolling this update out Over-the-Air which means it will need to be manually installed using Kies.
The process is a simple one which means that those who wish to install the AT&T Galaxy S II Ice Cream Sandwich update should be able to get it up and running in no time at all.
Ice Cream Sandwich for the Galaxy S II should not only bring the features coming with Android 4.0 itself – features like Face Unlock and the new UI, but it should also bring numerous enhancements and bug fixes along with it as well.
Overall, the update should make the Galaxy S II a better device so those who are still on Android 2.3 Gingerbread should definitely consider installing the new software.
