Looks like owners of the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G are about to receive their Ice Cream Sandwich update finally, with Craig Ruhan from Telstra advising via the Crowd Support Forums that the Samsung has advised that the update will begin rolling out to the handsets from 5PM tomorrow :
Samsung have informed us that the GS2 4G ICS update will commence deployment from 5:00 PM Friday 14 December.
The FOTA deployment will be “staggered” :
Day 1-3 : 10k of devices selected at random to be eligible for update, users are either alerted via FOTA Push Message or by manually checking
Day 4-13: An additional 10% of devices are selected per day
Day 14: All devices are now eligible for update
Craig has also advised that the update is about 190MB in size and recommends being attached to Wi-Fi to download the update. If you don’t want to wait for the staggered rollout you can connect your phone via Kies and get the update immediately as it will be available from Day 1.
If you wish to prompt your phone to check for a software update you can go to Settings > About Phone > Software Update > Check for update after 5pm tomorrow and hopefully you may be one of the lucky 10,000.
