ICS was released for Galaxy S2 today..

Looks like ICS has been released for our GS2s today, looks like its kind of hit and miss on if you get it right away but the way to get it is to connect your phone to your computer/Kies and if your one of the lucky ones you will get the update... 

Good Luck Smiley Happy

I didn't look or see any of those stats... it didn't take long. I was doing it from PC connected to high-speed internet, though.

Re: ICS was released for Galaxy S2 today..

update for sgh i777 is buggy and i see considerable lag while moving around. Email sync and notification system is completely buggy. i am not getting any notification sound alerts. At least for ginger bread it was flawless. And battery life is same no improvement.
hope AT&T will fix it soon

After so many months AT&T should release a good OS at least

If you think that AT&T is not committed to its customers, why do you sit here waiting around drooling for ICS?

 

AT&T must be happy with this one way committment.

 

Sorry, for being so harsh, but why are you waiting? I have been on CM9 for months now, it took some time to come to a conclusion that AT&T would not be proactive and that I had to take matters in my own hands. That was very liberating and rewarding.

 

There is probably a kid in your neighborhood that canhelp you root your device and put CM9 on it.

Re: ICS was released for Galaxy S2 today..

I am not going to root until 1 yr warranty is up. even then the rooters have problems with ICS. I am going to wait a week or so on ICS for ATT s2 then see what happens. If the verdict is mostly good on the ATT official version of ICS ill get it. Quite frankly I am always very worried to mess with an operting system that you have no big complaints with. I may even wait until ICS 4.1 unless I see no issue out there for most S2 users on the "death star network" (ATT)

>>> I may even wait until ICS 4.1

Ummm ... I believe 4.1 will not be Ice Cream Sandwich. It'll be Jellybean (should be announced this week?), and I doubt you'll ever see an official Jellybean release for the I777.

When the final CM9 is released, I might consider it. But I can't spend time on "nightly builds". Also, if AT&T screws things up, at least there's a warranty!

I fully expect 4.1 for the I777. Google, Samsung and AT&T pledged a commitment to timely upgrade releases for the first 18 months of most new phones. This help lure me and many other customers away from the Apple world. As one of the most popular Android devices, this phone should be on the list. We bought our phones under that commitment and we should hold AT&T to their end of the bargain. It's sad how long this upgrade has taken.

 

Some people will argue that we should have known better, but this was the first major android update since the commitment was released. Their previous mistakes were acknowledged and things would be different this time.

I agree. I just want to GAIN not LOOSE what I have now with gingerbread. Looks like jelly bean might be 4.1. Does not matter. the issue is what will work with S2. If 4.0.4 works likely 4.1 will as well.

 

On the 4.1 vs 5.0 mini controversey see below.... Geeez this is as bad as iphone 4s vs iphone 5. just have to wait people until the middle earth drones can crank out more code for bigger phone processors.
