Android 4.0.4 is rolling out to the Samsung Galaxy S II in some territories
Already, most Samsung Galaxy S II owners are relishing on all of the wonders that come along with the recent Ice Cream Sandwich software update, but for those holding onto the GT-i9100 international version, it’s actually seeing yet another one.

As some people will recall, the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy S II was based on Android 4.0.3, however, this new one bound for the international version is sporting a slightly newer 4.0.4 firmware. From the sound of it all, the 4.0.4 firmware was finalized not too long ago – more specific, this new “XWLPM” firmware was built on July 5th. Furthermore, it’s currently available as an over-the-air update and through the conventional Kies process, though, it’s being made available to unlocked Russian handsets initially.

Although it’s a very minor bump, this new version includes a new radio firmware as well – but beyond that, there isn’t anything else prevalent with it. Nevertheless, if you own the handset, it’s best to keep on checking for that update. Seeing that the international version is typically the one to see new updates first, it’s only a matter of time before carriers will get the update to test out on their handsets – albeit, it can be a lengthy process for some.

What a crap? My friend updated from GB to ICS official update and only one thing he found updated i.e firmware version(4.0) LOL... Rather i preferred installing a Custom ROM & I can really taste the flavor of ice cream sandwich.

cuz google didnt release the JB source code for OEMs just yet ...they update nexus series first to giving it a lil advantage over other handsets ...and after a while they release the source .... even then the OEMs will need some more time to modify it ...to add all their enhancements ,launchers .. and stupid bloatware

No offense but you sound quite pathetic. It doesn't take much effort to type everything out. This is meant to be a reply to Wiki_jaan
