ICS update for AT&T Samsung Galaxy S2 possibly delayed until June 23
Good news doesn’t seem to last long when it comes to that Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update, does it? We reported yesterday that the long awaited ICS update is finally coming to Samsung Galaxy S2 owners on AT&T, which they were supposed to get via Kies. While some users have been able to get the update with no trouble, some haven’t been as lucky. What gives?
As reported by Phandroid, one of their readers was able to get in contact with an AT&T rep, who then confirmed that the ICS update was put on hold due to technical reasons. The problem apparently lies in the Kies server, which forced AT&T to delay the ICS roll out. Fret not though, as the update will (hopefully) be back in full force this Saturday. What’s a day more when you’ve waited more or less 6 months already for ICS.
So pour some more water into that glass and stop saying that it’s half empty. Saturday is not a bad day to be installing ICS on your phone – what with all the free time you’ll have trying out the new features of the latest Android OS.
As for folks who have luckily got the ICS update on their Samsung Galaxy S2, mind sharing with the rest of the readers how you dig the new look of the phone? Please let us know as well if you see the ICS update back on Kies.
