AT&T Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket gets ICS leak
Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket owners have probably been sitting on the edge of their seats for the last couple of days, with the announcement from AT&T that the Skyrocket is one of the 10 devices in the carrier’s lineup that will get ICS over the coming months. But wait no longer you must, since the official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich ROM has made its way to RootzWiki.
It appears that the leaked ICS ROM is the real deal. Those who have updated their Skyrocket using the leaked ROM seem to believe that it’s the official 4.03 firmware for the phone, claiming that most things work as they should. Along with ICS and a sprinkle of TouchWiz overlay, your Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket can finally make use of that NFC chip for some Google Wallet mobile transactions. Note, however, that the leaked ICS ROM won’t work with other Samsung Galaxy S2 variants in the US.
You can find the download link for the 670MB leaked Ice Cream Sandwich ROM file here, but you’ll first have to install Odin on your Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket. The standard words of caution apply — only continue at your own risk, as we’re only the messenger of the good news.
Other devices on AT&T that are waiting to say adieu to Gingerbread and Honeycomb include the Motorola Atrix 2, Atrix 3G, Pantech Burst, Pantech Element, Samsung Captivate Glide, Samsung Galaxy S2, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, Samsung Galaxy Note, and LG Nitro. Meanwhile, the HTC Vivid gets the honor of being the first AT&T device to officially receive the ICS update.
Will you be installing the leaked ICS update on your Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket?
