Sprint Epic 4G Touch Ice Cream Sandwich update rolls out, U.S. Cellular Galaxy S2 not as lucky
A few days ago we told you that Sprint was getting ready to roll out the highly anticipated Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade for its Galaxy S2 version – more commonly known as the Epic 4G Touch – and it looks like the update is already available. Better late than never, right, Sprint subscribers?
The update is available as an over-the-air (OTA) download, so you should have no problem installing Android 4.0.4 on your Epic 4G Touch device. Sprint already posted the complete changelog for the Epic 4G Touch Android 4.0.4 update (hit the source link below) and revealed that starting July 15, “for a limited time only,” the carrier will offer a “Buy One, Get One Free” deal on Epic 4G Touch purchases. We’ll remind you though that the carrier also sells the newest Galaxy S model, which you should definitely check out if you’re buying a new Android handset.
The video below should come in handy when upgrading your Epic 4G Touch to Android 4.0.4:
U.S. Cellular Galaxy S2 owners are not that lucky. The carrier has scheduled a software update for the device as well, but unfortunately for them it’s not Ice Cream Sandwich. Instead, you’ll be getting Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread installed on your device, build version FF18. The update brings a few “Google security patches” and other fixes, but you’ll have to manually apply it – full instructions are available at the “Samsung” link below.
There are no news at this time on when the U.S. Cellular Galaxy S2 Ice Cream Sandwich will be rolled out.
