How to get the Samsung Galaxy S2 Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update
If your Samsung Galaxy S2 resides in any of the above markets, here is what you need to do to get the update: If you’ve never updated your Samsung Galaxy S2 before then you need to know a couple of things, for starters you need the latest KIES software. So make sure you have the latest version of KIES (KIES 1.5 doesn’t cut it) and do not carry out the update over 3G as the download is of a substantial size.
