More Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update news is appearing this afternoon. While all the hype as of late has been about the Galaxy S III, it’s older smaller brother the Galaxy S II is finally getting Android 4.0 ICS over on AT&T. They have two models, and this is the standard 4.3-inch original SGSII, not the Skyrocket. More details below.
This was leaked about two months ago but today it’s official. Like the T-Mobile version however, this update appears to only be available via software using a PC and Samsung Kies (download). AT&T will not be pushing the update over the air to devices so users will be required to manually update to Ice Cream Sandwich should you choose to — which AT&T is calling an optional update.
If you have the original Galaxy S II on AT&T you’ll want to install Kies from the link above, grab a USB cord and update to the latest and greatest version of Android. Everything should remain the same, data and contacts should be in tact, but as always I’d backup or save anything important just to be safe. Drop us a comment below and let us know how it goes.
