Default Why won't my Galaxy S2 upgrade to 4.0.4?

First of all, I am sorry if this isn't the right section to post this. I have just joined this forum.

I have recently bought SII and it is android 4.0.3. When I go to software update it checks for a few seconds and then shows no update is available. Whereas 4.0.4 has been officially released for SII. I want to know how I can upgrade. I have not rooted my phone and I will never be doing it. I am new to Android world and I don't want to mess up. So please tell me how I can do it the clean way.

Another question, what is a custom ROM? And do you need to root to get custom ROM? Thanks

Hi Duke Thunders, and welcome to AF

You'll get the best advice on this in the S2 section of the forum, and in particular the forum for your version/network. Not really knowing the S2, my best guess is that 4.0.4 may have been released for some S2 models, but perhaps not all - especially phones bought via a network will typically have to wait until the network implement the update before they receive it, so get it some time after the unbranded versions.

A custom ROM is a set of android system software built by independent developers (i.e. not the manufacturer). I'm afraid you do need to be rooted to install one.
