Samsung X2 And Ice Cream
 
Any idea when it will be out? I swear i saw an update on my phone last week but i missed it by removing the index on top screen so might be out, but not sure.

I have Tmobile so not sure if they have it or not, but great phone.

Are you talking about the Samsung Galaxy S2?

Now Samsung has confirmed the Samsung Galaxy S2 Ice Cream Sandwich update is landing next week, here's our constantly updated hub of all information for the next level of Android on your flagship Samsung phone.

The problem with Android updates is the process is so staggered, leading to consumers getting angry at the length of time it takes them to receive the next generation of software.

Android 4.0: Ice Cream Sandwich review?

Once Google throws out the source code to the manufacturers, it's up to them to divert resources to combining the latest version of Android with their hardware – this can take longer if there's a skin running atop the OS, as is the case with the Galaxy S2.

And once that's complete, the likes of Vodafone and O2 then have to make sure there are no issues with the new firmware running with their networks – it may sound trivial, but you don't want something like this happening - so check below to see how long you'll be likely to wait for the next generation software to land on your Galaxy S2.

Update: It looks like you need to plug your Galaxy S2 into your computer and access the Ice Cream Sandwich update via Kies. The update will not show up in the Settings > About phone > Software update > Update option on the handset.

Good luck with that Bigman. When we had TMobile and we were waiting on updates to our phones they were slower than Oprah leaving Dairy Queen during a sale on Peanut Buster Parfaits... well almost as slow.

OEM's release upgrades, not service providers. :o

But they have to load their **** on it and send it through months of testing.

We had to wait for T Mobile to release the upgrade before we could get it. They have to make sure it is compatible with all the crap they do to the phone on their own.

One of the other reasons I love the iphone, we don't have to wait for those upgrades like we did before.

Last I heard Google was trying to move away from Carrier customised firmwares. No?

Why don't you just use their software?
