Lots of current Android phones are without the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update. AT&T’s first Android phone got the update last week in the HTC Vivid and while the carrier announced several devices that will be getting the update in the future, most owners have to wait. Most. Those who own the Galaxy S II Skyrocket will be happy to know the Android 4.0 update has leaked out today courtesy of RootzWiki.
They believe that the update could very well be the final version of Android 4.0 for the Galaxy S II Skyrocket and at this point, it’s hard to disagree with them.
Still, there is a possibility that AT&T will cook up something else between now and the official roll out date so be weary of that.
The build has apparently been out since March 14th and it appears that it only works with the Skyrocket at this point. Sorry, Galaxy S II owners, even those that are on AT&T’s network.
NFC and Google Wallet may not work either.
Now before you download, we’ll say this. You’ll be installing this at your own risk. Unless you’re a power user, we suggest waiting for the official update to arrive as it’s always possible that something could go wrong in the installation processor.
And no one likes a bricked phone.
From the comments though, it seems like the software is working like a charm though so you’ll want to hit up the source link in order to get the files.
For those that don’t want to take the risk, we should see an update fairly soon if† this is, in fact, the final version of the software.
