It's been a long time coming, but today AT&T's Galaxy S II Skyrocket finally got the official Ice Cream Sandwich update users have been waiting for. This official update comes quite some time after a leaked build of Ice Cream Sandwich started making the rounds in March, so we're sure many will be happy to get their hands on the finished build at last.

The official update is being rolled out over Kies, so all you need to do (provided you're a non-rooted user) is look for build i727UCLF6 and download the update. Rooted users, naturally, should wait for the pre-rooted release of Ice Cream Sandwich to arrive before updating.

The main difference between this official build and the one we saw back in March is that it will update the Galaxy S II Skyrocket to Android 4.0.4 instead of Android 4.0.3. Otherwise, the updates should be mostly the same, so if you were using March's leaked build, the transition to this new update should be quite painless.

    Need some help guys. I usually go with the OTA updates so Im not familiar with Kies. what is it and how do I use it?

      Kies is basically Samsung’s version of iTunes. It connects your phone to your PC (not Mac) and keeps all of your backups for pretty much everything on your phone. If you make a Kies backup of your phone and then soft brick it, you can restore it and have your back up saved.

    I’m running mine now and it’s going very slowly. The first time I tried to do it, it timed out =/ I’m also at my friend’s apartment complex which has pretty crappy internet.

      Timed out again. Lame, I’ll just try it when I get home on a real connection. I just want ICS! 😛

    I connected to kies air and i dont see any options to update. Could someone help me out?

    • techdude

      connect with your data cable

  • If Kies says your device is not supported, update Kies. Also use the PC software and not Kies Air.

    If it timeouts just try again. That happens from time to time sadly.

    Kies reconizes my phone and tells me I have an update, but when I hit the update button nothing happens. I have unistalled and reinstalled both the drivers and kies to make sure I have the latest version. Can anybody help?

    Not working. Samsung says their servers were overloaded and that they stopped letting people update. Lovely.

    I officially hate this new update for my Skyrocket. Not only did it not add anything of importance, but it also took away half the things that I liked on my phone, most importantly my background dimension setting. I loved that. I honestly can say that this update isn’t worth it and avoid getting it if you can or you will be as disappointed as I am.
