The Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket has been out for over nine months now (it was released back in November 2011). At the same time, Android 4 ICS has been available since about the same time, giving carriers plenty of time to take care of the nitty-gritty bits of rolling out an operating system update.

Now, there are reports that the Galaxy S2 Skyrocket is finally getting the long awaited 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich update. The reports have come from the XDA Developers forums, stating that Skyrocket users can get the update through Samsung Kies PC companion software. Android Police states that “rooted users would be advised to wait for a pre-rooted build of the update. Everyone else needs only to fire up Kies, look for build i727UCLF6, and grab the update”.

The AT&T Galaxy S2 Skyrocket Ice Cream Sandwich update is definitely a nice treat for those of you who will be stepping up from Gingerbread. However, isn’t it a bit disappointing that this update is rolling out just after Google I/O and the announcement of Jelly Bean? Is this the day that you have been waiting for much too long? Let us know in the comments below.
