Default can i put standard samsung ICS on vodaphone SGS2 without rooting

Hi all, i have got a vodaphone samsung galaxy S2. i have unlocked it to work on any network and i have a few qustions regarding it:

firstly, samsung say they will be releasing ICS for it in the first quarter of 2012. but because my phone was locked to vodaphone and it has al those vodaphone blooters on it. i would then have to wait for vodaphone to release there version of the update.
is the any way i can install the official samsung ICS release without having to wait for vodaphone. preferebly without rooting it. and if so how?.

my second qustion:
if i were to root it. that would void my warranty. but if it broke after i had rooted it, would the be any way of unrooting it??. so as to get back my warranty??

Thanks to anyone who can help
Cheers CoreyB

No, you don't have to wait for Vodaphone to distribute the update out.
No, you don't have to root to update.

Try not to break it =)
Yes, you can always simply unroot your phone.

Depends on how bad you break it though haha

Welcome to android forum Corey

An ota or kies update will be made available for you at some point. But if you don't want to wait around for that you will be able to flash ics from here as soon as a stable build is available

Vodafone seem on ball with ics. I've noticed many Vodafone apps updating to "Android 4.0" over the last few days.

The leaked ICS development firmware doesn't require root, but as it's a leak and wasn't intended for public release you'll void the warranty by installing it.

Almost all the download links of XDA Developers point to multiupload which now I believe has shut shop. Try only if someone has put in a mirror link.

Yeah a lot of the older firmware is on multiupload so can't be downloaded but all the recent ones including all the ics firmwares aren't so can be downloaded fine.
