Vodafone Australia releases Ice Cream Sandwich for Galaxy S II

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

Vodafone Australia today announced on their blog that the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for Samsung Galaxy S II will be rolled out starting from May 2nd (tomorrow) at 12pm. A couple of days back Vodafone Australia announced that the update will be available very soon and now the update is going to roll-out tomorrow.

You can get the update on your Galaxy S II via Samsung Kies or over-the-air. Over-the-air update is around 225MB and will be available on 3G, and getting the update using a Vodafone SIM won’t cost you any deduction from your monthly data allowance.

To get the update via Kies, you need to connect your phone to a PC and select “Firmware Upgrade” option in Tools menu. The update is around 1050MB in size when downloaded via Kies. Devices sold by Three can also get the ICS update, but only via Samsung Kies.

Before updating do remember to back up all your important data and make sure the phone is fully charged.

Update your Galaxy S II, enjoy the delightful taste of Ice Cream Sandwich and do remember to share your views with us.

    The update is available as mentioned on another post (Weekly Wrap up) on Vodafone Blog where it lists all the updates released over the past week. Check out for yourself at http://blog.vodafone.com.au/blog/software-update-weekly-wrap-%E2%80%93-2nd-may-2012/

    If you have tried it on Kies then try getting the update over-the-air or vice verse. Or you can also try it via Kies on some other computer/laptop.
