Samsung Galaxy S2 Ice Cream Sandwich?

So, there are rumours on the net that ICS will make an official appearance on the SGS2 on or around 1st March.

As I am new to VM Mobile I'm not really sure on the stance they take on new firmware? Is the SGS2 under the mercy of VM and their own release schedules or will it pick up stock Samsung/Android firmware when it is released?

My previous experience of this was on the Vodafone network with Nokia phones and they were painfully slow at approving updates.

VM need to test the firmware before they release it.

Yes my phone awaits it and also lets hope we don't get any problems with this new version.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S2 Ice Cream Sandwich?

It has been rolled out to sim free phones but those of us locked on to networks have to wait a bit longer.

It will be interesting, because as far as I can tell my SGS II is unbranded, even though I got it from a VM shop, so will see whether I can get it on Monday or not

Re: Samsung Galaxy S2 Ice Cream Sandwich?

It started to rollout to parts of Europe yesterday but the UK isn't due to get the update till at least next week, and thats only for unbranded handsets bought SIM free.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S2 Ice Cream Sandwich?

If it has any pre installed VM apps then I hate to be the bearer of the bummer and say its a VM iteration of the phone software and as such like all the other networks won't be rolling from the 19 the.

It's surprisingly Virgin free-only the network operator's name gives the game away.

Further to that *#1234# gives you various information-apparently xeuk or xx means unbranded. Virgin have confirmed on the community forum that they'll be taking the software for testing once it's released in the UK, but it appears that you won't have to wait for that process if your phone is unbranded.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S2 Ice Cream Sandwich?

Well as I put in the main Google Android thread, I took the plunge and did the update via ODIN last night as KIES is very flakey on my computer.

Worked fine and still picked up Virgin correctly (rather than seeing it as T-Mobile)

Yup, but it got all UK stuff in it anyway - just followed the instructions here http://reviews.cnet.co.uk/mobile-pho...y-s2-50006766/

Also best bit is it seems to have got rid of the 'Fully charged' beep which has been annoying the hell out of me since I got the phone
