Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket Android 4.0 ROM leaks – official update is coming soon?

skyrocket

Last week, the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket was prominently featured on AT&T’s Android 4.0 update list and today we’re seeing the very first leak. The Android 4.0.3 build is very similar to what European Samsung Galaxy S II customers were treated to a few weeks ago, save for AT&T’s bundled applications. While the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket Android 4.0.3 update looks nothing like Ice Cream Sandwich on the Galaxy Nexus, it does feature all of the system tweaks which make the Android 2.3 seem so dated.

We don’t know when AT&T and Samsung will officially be making the Android 4.0.3 update for the Skyrocket available to the public. No major flaws have been found in the leaked build, but AT&T may still have a few rounds of testing left to finish up. It may be exciting to see Android 4.0 updates finally trickling out to consumers, but lets not forget that Google released the code over six months ago. It will probably be another 3-6 months before Samsung, Motorola and HTC deliver on all their Ice Cream Sandwich promises.

Do you think AT&T will update the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket to Android 4.0 before T-Mobile rolls out the same update to the HTC Sensation 4.0 (expected before the end of March)?

    I hope so! And with the original s2 and note updates right behind it or at the same time! But I think the sensation will get it first.

      the note and s2 will get iCS just weeks before Jelly Bean launches. lol

  • spazby

    HTC seems to get the updates first, I think it will continue..

    T-mobile will update the Sensation first but hopefully, the Galaxy II will get the ICS update next month.

      Seems like T-Mobile are always last with these things, but it’s good to see updates coming out, the good thing about this is, that a rom can be made from the skyrocket ics update for the t-Mobile GSII since they’re basically the same phones.

    Wow, Samsung releasing an update! Oh wait now were back in the same boat waiting on AT&T. If it aint one its the other..

    Not sure that the leak means it’s coming out “soon” for everyone. I guess depends on how you define “soon.” There was a leak for the Acer Iconia 500 tablet, and for the Sprint Nexus S4G over two months ago.. yet, both of those haven’t gone official.

    hopefully ICS comes to the T-Mobile SGII soon as well
