While, shipments of preorders of the Samsung Galaxy S III from AT&T have been delayed. Samsung Galaxy S II owners were happy to know that the update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich was available until the ice cream melted.
The update disappeared after a brief appearance.
As with other Samsung Galaxy S II ICS updates, the update had to be performed via the Samsung Kies computer software. Some owners downloaded the Kies software and were able to download update, but sadly the updates did not work properly. It became apparent that the update was released to a few owners by mistake or were part of a testing process.
The T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II received the update to Android 4.3 on June 12.
We plan for the upgrade to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) for Galaxy S II customers to be live very soon. Like with every OS update, we test it on our servers before we roll it out to customers. We’re in the process of doing that with Android 4.0 (ICS) for Galaxy S II customers and hope to make that live soon. We recommend customers wait to attempt the update.
