AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket ICS update leaks out

AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket ICS update leaks out
AT&T’s Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket might get updated to Android Ice Cream Sandwich even sooner than expected as what looks like the very official ICS 4.0.3 firmware leaked out on RootzWiki. You can download the ICS 4.0.3 ROM and flash now, or you could also wait for the official OTA update to arrive saving you the hassle.

Everything seems to be working properly on the ICS-flavored Galaxy S II Skyrocket. The Android 4.0 version comes with some heavy skinning courtesy of TouchWiz, nothing too shocking considering this is a Samsung device. In this update, there’s the added support for NFC with Google Wallet, which will allow you to pay with your phone.

The build date for ICS 4.0.3 is March 14th, 2011, so it looks like it’s been out for a while and this is just another hint that it’s coming sooner rather than later via the official channels. Hit the source link below to download the files needed to update.

Note that this currently doesn’t work on the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II and could brick your handset if you try it.

Man, if the Skyrocket gets ICS before the regular GS2, that's just plain gonna suck.

You could always root and run a custom ICS rom on your I-777. But I would agree that the skyrocket version get ICS before the SGH I-777 considering how closely related it is to the GT-I9100

Yeah, only a few countries in Europe have gotten it. And they are unlocked and unbranded GT I1900's. Not the AT&T subsidized I-777

Downloading official update on my skyrocket now! Update installed.... 2.3.6 this is not ICS Samsung! This is a silly little update that was on the gs2 months ago and wasn't available on the skyrocket even yesterday!
