T-Mobile US Releases ICS Update For The Galaxy S II

By 05:28 Wed, 14 Jul 2021 Comments

US users who have been waiting patiently for a (legitimate) way to upgrade their Samsung Galaxy S II devices to Android 4.0 will finally have their day in the sun, as T-Mobile finally released the official Ice Cream Sandwich update for the former Samsung flagship.

The update won't be a straightforward OTA update, however, as Samsung and T-Mobile are requiring users to upgrade using Kies software and a computer.

To acquire the update, download and install the Kies software onto your computer, then connect your S II via a Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable (making sure Universal Serial Bus (USB) debugging is enabled) then simply accept the update. Be sure you have the latest software available, as Android 2.3.6 is required to upgrade.

While the update won't wipe all the data on your smartphone (your contacts, apps, etc. should all remain intact), it does restore the homeclassy screen settings to factory default. Nevertheless, it is recommended that you backup your data beforehand just to be safe.
