Default Ice Cream Sandwich available through Kies

Just updated my firmware through Kies and BOOM Ice Cream Sandwich is on my Galaxy S2 i777.

BTW my phone has never been rooted.

I read your post and decided to connect to Kies - and for the first time I actually have an update available. I am hoping for the same result - ICS. I will update the post when it has completed the update but I am getting excited.

After it sitting on 55% for over an hour I finally removed it and started the emergency restore but it upgraded my S2 to ICS anyway.

I wonder if it was removed. Because I see a few posts on different forums about the update not being there. I updated mine about 7:30-8pm EST

Im trying to figure out how to open Kies. Do I need to install it on the computer or will just plugging in the phone via USB make Kies available? I plugged in the USB and searched for Kies and didnt find anything.

you gotta download kies from samsung website. scroll all the way down and make sure software is selected.
edit: hit see all downloads first.

so far so good. Seems to freeze, but this could also be GO launcher which I'm trying out.
Also, from a power usage standpoint, jury is out. I was reorganizing my home pages and downloading apps, and power went down from 70% to 30% in 2 hours.

Many times the rollouts are limited by region or range of MEID/ENS numbers so the servers don't get overload with downloads. It's promising that some people are seeing the updates. I would be optimistic that everyone should be able to update by the end of the week.

Same here. I hope it becomes available for me later today. I saw this message on the Samsung support site:

I've never been crazy about the message about your firmware being up-to-date in Kies. What it really is telling you is that there are no later versions of firmware available to you.

I just hate how long we have had to wait for this update. Made me even consider a Windows phone solely because of the fact that they do their own updates like Apple does, not having the users rely on the carriers for updating.

Same message here: Latest Firmware: PDA:KK6/ Phone: KK6/ CSC:KK6 (ATT)

I assume they are doing regional roll outs. I'm in New york, anyone else experience this in the region?

Default Samsung confirms ICS update

I chatted with Samsung a few minutes ago asking about the update. They were reluctant to give me information, but the representative liked me . They mentioned to me that last night they were doing a test on how the servers would respond to the update. Obviously, no bueno. Tomorrow, their shutdown is to fix all the issues with the ICS update release. They did tell me NOT to update to last night's version of the OS . They also mentioned to me that 100% sure, everyone will have the update by the end of the week (3 more days!). They did hint to me that the process will begin tomorrow night after their servers come back online .

Cheers everyone!

Well well well. I did do last night's upgrade and the power consumption is even worse than 2.3.6. This is affecting me only marginally as I gave up on this issue a long time ago and just walk around with at least one spare battery. But I wonder if that's why you got that rather interesting piece of advice.

Immediate improvement I noticed right away: speech recognition is materially better. I can actually dictate texts without having some ridiculous word salad coming out. I've also used the GO launcher, since I've had to reorganize all my home pages and apps. I'm not entirely sure about that one - I must be missing some subtleties in terms of how it's supposed to improve my life. I'm now wondering if I've not added another layer of stuff to an otherwise elegant OS.

So -- to get back to your post, it looks like I can look forward to another upgrade in the near future. Or else use Lunatics59' wonderful advice on rooting and installing something cleaner. (too busy to give it the time required so far... )

Cheers,
Leila

If I install ICS on my Samsung S2 SGH-i777, will it erase all of my (already installed) apps, music, movies, games, documents etc... or will it just replace the system files?

What version is the new update?

It shouldn't, but you may find that there are apps that aren't entirely compatible with ICS and will need to be updated. As far as your documents and media files, they should stay the same. All effort has been expended to make this an in-place update, but going from Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich is a major step and I'd highly recommend that once you update you perform a factory reset and reinstall everything just to clean up the OS. Make sure you back up ALL your important data before you do, or you could lose it.

I believe the update is 4.0.3

Wow, this is totally reminiscent of how the Gingerbread update went for the Infuse 4G. It's almost conical how they seem to be incapable of preventing a repeat of their mistake. From what I've seen with the Infuse, they're going to drag this out and people are going to think that they're working hard to improve bugs, but once they release it again, it'll be the same damn one.

If they don't do that and actually show that they had a legitimate reason (like working on 4.0.4), I'll be very very pleasantly surprised.

that looks like a good way to do it, but I am scared to try it. (cause it might erase my data and settings)
update: actually later on in that same thread it says it WILL wipe your data.

update: actually later on in that same thread it says it WILL wipe your data.

Ok so I was going to do the method above but for some reason I cannot find my S/N.. I have looked behind the battery and all that is there is the IMEI, the SKU, the FCC ID and the model number... I tried looking into the phone but the serial number is not shown in the settings, and I even tried a code I found on a website but that didnt work either.. I cant find my box either because I just recently moved... Can someone help on this?

There is absolutely nothing there. Just the ones that I mentioned earlier. And this is one that ATT sent me directly so I know that it wont be an illegal one or anything like that... I am so confused right now...
