Ice Cream Sandwich ROM for the Samsung Galaxy S II leaks, TouchWiz included
The official Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Samsung Galaxy S II will not be out until later this quarter, but thanks to the guys at SamMobile, we now have the privilege of taking it for a spin. Well, kind of. What they have come across is an official alpha build of ICS for the Galaxy S II – a yet-unpolished ROM based on Android 4.0.3, to be precise. It is customized with the TouchWiz user interface and can be easily flashed using the ODIN software tool.

However, there are a few things that you need to know first. As the case is with alpha builds, the ROM may be too buggy to be suitable for every day use. Besides, it can be installed only on the international version of the smartphone, which means that Epic 4G Touch or Skyrocket owners should not even bother. Same goes for the other U.S. variants of the Samsung Galaxy S II

Those of you who are interested can get the ROM from the source link below where a brief step-by-step guide to flashing it is also available. If you are new to manually installing ROMs, however, we would recommend sticking with Gingerbread for now and waiting for the official Ice Cream Sandwich update to be released.

Oh god, where do you people get your info? Did you even watch the video? Have you even used a SGS2 before? I admit that the moment I got my SGS2 I immediately downloaded a custom launcher because I want my phone to have nothing to do wih iOS at all, but one thing's for sure Touchwiz is slightly sluggish, the way it's programmed to, but not laggy...

There will be touchwiz 5 on the sgs3 so this is nothing. I would rather just have stock ics.
