Overseas version of the Samsung Galaxy S II to get its Android 4.0 update on March 10th

has already announced that March 15th will be the date in that country. What is holding up the update in the U.S. is the idiosyncrasies of each carrier's version of the model. Once Samsung gets past the problem of dealing with different carriers, it shouldn't take too long to roll out Ice Cream Sandwich in the States.
Those receiving the OTA download can load it over their mobile network, or speed things up using Wi-Fi. The fastest way to download the Android 4.0 update would be through the Kies desktop interface which hooks up your desktop PC and your Samsung handset. If you live in the U.S. with your Samsung Galaxy S II, just file away the above for later because eventually you WILL be receiving Android 4.0. Really.
UPDATE: Unfortunately, the March 10 release date has been nothing but a mistake. An official date for the release of ICS for Samsung Galaxy S II has yet to be established.

Yeah, but I wanted to see what Samsung's official ICS has to offer before rooting. Besides, Cyanogenmod 9 Stable isn't out yet, so I'll just wait till then

I'm on the XXLPH firmware(open europe, February). It has no issues with flash, or BT. Everything works fine, except one or two minor glitches. And yeah, it is TouchWized, with some cool 3d transitions(and believe me, the TW icons are better than the original launcher ones. In any case, you can grab the Trebuchet launcher.) . The final version will be polished I believe.
