    Is this real ICS firmware????

  • Rodrigo

    still no official release!!!!!!!!!! Samsung come on!!!!!!

    • Phillip

      Having had 2.3.5 on my S2 and finally “updating” I must say very stable and reliable. Not sure why Samsung needs to make an “official” release. Similar too Windows, we all go through the tantilizing Beta phases and the “official” release for 4.0.3 comes sometime around the next Beta one for android 5. Is always the case.
      Excellent ROM! No APN issues, wifi is super NO FC!

    This firmware is faster for sure.
    But it doesn’t turn on 3G when wifi is turned off.

  • roro

    Could I ask someone who has updated to ICS to do me a quick favour? I just want to know if Irish language interface support is maintained in the update – it’s there in the original. It should be listed as “Irish” or “Gaeilge” depending on the model.

    Thanks a lot.

  • FauSt0

    @ roro, yes it has the Irish language

  • roro

    Thanks a lot, FauSt0!
