Kiss How to Update Samsung Captivate with Android 4.0 aka Ice-cream Sandwich?

Samsung Captivate i897 was released on June, 2010. The phone originally had Android 2.1 aka Éclairs as its operating system which is upgradable to Gingerbread (2.3). The latest version of Android cannot be installed on this phone officially. But if you want it otherwise (Samsung wish it or not!), there are ways. This is the main fun with the Android; it is truly customizable unlike iOS.

........To update

The link for the ICS update appears to be either broken or Samsung has locked it down. I get a "forbidden" error when I attempt to download.
