Where is Jelly Bean 4.1 for my Skyrocket

Don't even bother wasting time on ICS, I've had this phone for 8 months on launch day and I'm not even running the latest and greatest Android version. Att and Samsung need to wake up and give me what I paid for.

I should call the FCC about this

No joke. I've had the Skyrocket since about the same time. It's silly how they haven't released ICS for the Skyrocket. I would love to have JellyBean on my phone but I just can't stand TouchWiz anymore.

Two words: Galaxy Nexus.

I had an SGH-I777, and switched to an international, penta-band GSM Galaxy Nexus configured for the "pure Google experience".

I have the latest version of ICS 4.0.4 (yakju IMM76I), and it's really stable. I'm now on day 26 without a reboot. Plus no TouchWiz or bloatware and updates come straight from Google.

And, I'm expecting that I'll have Jellybean before long.

No more carrier-subsidized phones for me.

Maybe they're going to surprise us and release Jellybean instead of Ice Cream Sandwich! Who am I kidding, we'll probably wait another year before they downgrade us to FroYo and go "HURRRHURRR THIS WOULDN'T HAVE HAPPENED IF YOU HAD JUST BEEN GOOD LITTLE BOYS AND GIRLS AND BOUGHT iPHONES"

I'm sure we'll have JB on our phones in the next month, thanks to XDA!

Considering all the problems Galaxy SII owners are having with their ICS updates, maybe it's a good thing ICS isn't available for our phones yet.  Who knows what havoc JB might cause.

Re: Where is Jelly Bean 4.1 for my Skyrocket

I got my Skyrocket back in February.  It still has the same OS version (Gingerbread) that came on it and AT&T tech support says that's the most recent available.  C'mon!  ICS has been out for over half a year (8 months)!  Is there one guy working on this with an ancient punchcard system?  Get it done, already!

 

When I purchased the phone I was told it would be updated as new versions release, but your release cycle is unacceptably slow!  When THREE operating system updates come out before you've released ONE, it is time to reevaluate your methods or your clients will reevaluate their vendor.  This is the epitome of poor support.

I got my skyrocket not long after it came out, and the only update its had is gingerbread. Come on AT&T, give us Ice cream sandwich or jelly bean, hurry up.

dawiz, it's sad though that the carriers are so far behind that it's hard to distinguish between sarcasm and seriousness. I mean, imagine if Dell was selling computers with Windows 2000...

I just got a skyrocket, I just assumed it will have ics. I am appalled to say the least. Wake up AT&T / Samsung, you are being totally ridiculous.

Re: Where is Jelly Bean 4.1 for my Skyrocket

Yeah I was actually misinformed too, I was told they were starting to preloaded the ICS on Skyrockets and bought one only to find out they pretty much lied. It's not the consumers fault for being annoyed about this, it's a fairly recent phone and there's already a successor and they weren't given what was promised to them at the launch basically.
