Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich update now rolling out to the Samsung Galaxy S II on Telstra

More Samsung news, yay! From all the people sending us emails, tweets and various other forms of communication, we can confirm that the Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich update is ready to be applied to your Samsung Galaxy S II from Telstra. The update doesn’t appear to be available for download over-the-air, so you’ll need to connect your Galaxy S II to your PC and sync it up to Kies.

The update is apparently just over 200MB and will bring you up to the latest major version of Android — TouchWiz is included also. This updates means that Vodafone will be the last to upgrade the Galaxy S II to ICS.

Let us know how the updating process goes in the comments below.

ICS now installed and running ok… Battery life is pretty good but every now and then the phone just switches itself off.  Probably happened about 3 times in the last 4 days.

Anyone else have a similar issue?

I am not having any battery issues with mine. Updated using Kies, all went smoothly. Been using it for a few days and only charged once.

I had the same problem with the battery usage being used up very very quickly, within the hour I used about 60% battery. I’m not sure if it was the opening and closing the camera app and rebooting the phone that did the trick. however once I charged my phone fully the battery drain stopped

no issues, downloaded on the phone, backed up on computer.. and did the install from the phone… if you aint getting a update, try signing up to Samsung account, as i had the update itching to be downloaded on the phone the other day

I had no problems yesterday loading and updating, my phone is unlocked but with a Telstra chip.
I used Kies from my laptop. The thing I have noticed is it goes through the battery a lot quicker, I will watch this one

Doing the firmware upgrade and it always seems to stall when downloading the file for it…

Very frustrating!

Have you tried Kies? I thought that ICE had been released for generic (non-branded) devices. Could be wrong…

Shaun Anthony Dickenson

Yes I checked the OTA and KIes and no update.  Kies is the latest version.

I am never getting a Samsung again, I never had this issue with Htc.

I think all the things that made Touchwiz good for Gingerbread, it kind of sucks for ICS. GO Launcher EX didn’t really work as well either. Upgrade itself was fine, I factory reset after install and everything is smooth. No launcher though.

I forded a rooted stock install in my future.

 I had a similar issue. Interupted it mid update a couple of times (whilst doing via my wireless). Ended up plugging the phone into my laptop and updating via the kies software.

Downloaded via Kies…that was a bloody effort an a half.

Man, how disappointing is it? Reminds me when stock is way better than TouchWiz…

Downloaded over Kies (didnt show us update OTA). Update went very smoothly and took about 30 mins (lots of apps updated on reboot) everything running as it should even GO Launcher EX remained in place.

Update went well but the text in some programs (like text messages) looks strange. Thicker outgun some areas of the letters and thin in other areas.

 Fixed the issue by reseting the font back to default rather than “Helvetica S”
