    I for one am impressed that with all this demand the download went quickly.

  • waiting for a custom rom based on this…I’m rooted so can’t update.

    • Blitz

      I was too but it was quick and easy to unroot and get the official update. 

  • Blitz

    waiting for battery to get to 50%!!! This is KKKKKKILLING ME! 

  • mgiusto

    Guys, let me know how battery life is.  I got the latest 2.3.6 update on Friday and that increased my battery enormously.  I used to only go 10 hours before needing a charge, now my phone has lasted easily 1 day and a half to 2 days.

    I hope ICS continues that trend.  If not, I may stick with what I have for as long as I can hold out…

  • Lalkobes87

    Updated and working great!

    • Wil1235

      is ur home screen the same as the old update? mine is

        Yes same but weather widget is no working.

        • J-Hop2o6

           I don’t have a GS2, but i’m sure u have to re-add it to your homescreen.

  • Youngt82

    Congrats to the SGS2 owners , enjoy your ICS:)

    I connect my phone to Kies but no option to update. What am I doing wrong?

  • reggie517

    Mine done it feel good!

  • reggie517

    The phone is very fast!

  • So what are the changes you guys have noticed?

    It’s faster for sure.  GMAIL looks and works better.
    Camera is the same.  Too bad since I like the stock ICS camera.

  • Guest

    Got it at 11pm sharp. looks awesome! a little sluggish at times though. seems to use more RAM than  before the update was downloaded, but that was to be expected. very excited nonetheless!

  • scottyrob82

    And updating now.

  • Tntnguyen714

    just updated mines n my parents phone to ICS! awesome! everything is soo smooth.

    • Wil1235

      is ur home screen the same as the old update? mine is

      • Tony

         well its not really the same cause ics set my phone back to factory but i didnt mind.

        • Wil1235

          cuz my update looks just like the old update, but the rest of the phone is updated. the home screen looks like 2.3.6. is it possible u send me a screen shot of ur home screen @ wil1235@yahoo.com

  • blaq

    downloading this sucka as we speak. 

  • Got the download about 30 minutes ago. Looks awesome thus far

  • MarcusDW

    Took a lil while but mine updated without any problems.  Sure “it looks just like GB” but there are a lot of cosmetic changes to make the phone seem like its finally be put together.  Can’t wait to customize it tomorrow!

  • Installed and running smoothly. Took a bit to re-set up my home screen, but that was a simple enough (I took screenshots before I updated :)

    Only major differences are the task manager, top bar and menu structures, not much else feels different so far. Very smooth, no hiccups or lag noticed.

    • Df3

      uh try the browser big difference

      •  Browser isn’t *that* different. Things may not be in the same place, but they’re all still there. Refer to my mention of menu structure for the browser change.

  • mike_hilly

    Well this sucks. My SGS 2 won’t connect to a computer… it sucks. Pretty sure it’s the phone.

    • Amero07

      Pull the battery from your phone, restart your computer and try a different usb port. and make sure kies software downloaded from samsungs website is updated.

      • mike_hilly

        Did all that before posting. Had nothing to do with it. Had to reboot phone while plugged into USB to have the option to mount it.

  • Guest

    Keeps saying “no firmware”. Really annoyed

    • Na

      You must be new here. It’ll say because that’s for OTA firmware updates. ICS is available by KIES only not OTA.

  • teflonman

    where is face unlock

    • Amero07

      you have to set it up like you would a pin or pattern. Just choose face unlock instead of those.

  • eJ

    IM HAVING A ISSUE sorry for the caps but anyways Ive done all the instructions I get to where I connect my phone and in the kies sections it just says connecting but nothing brings up is there something I need to do please help

    • Df3

      Mine did same, try rebooting phone and computer then try it again. 

  • Supermansdad79

    I HAVE BEEN ICE CREAM SANDWICHED!! FINALLY I HAVE IT AND ITS WORKING GREAT!
     

  • Marvin_avilla

    if it fails trying agian turn on debugging them connect to computer
     

  • MikeLT

    Turn on mock location

  • Df3

    Browser seems way faster and phone is more responsive, cool!

  • GBGamer

    I am loving the new update!

  • Isn’t working on my macbook, keeps disconnecting my device every time it finally downloads and messing up my phone…Kies is so dumb I don’t understand why we have to update through a stupid application 

    • Df3

      try repairing permissions and then reboot

      • nope still doesn’t work, annoying but oh well might be time to upgrade anyways

        • Df3

          did you do a battery pull on phone before starting?

        • yep, seriously done with Samsung and their strange updating…not sure why it couldn’t just be OTA like HTC devices

        • Reinstall Kies and most importantly, the drivers. Kies Mac should have a driver repair option as connection diagnostics or something like that.

  • ICSonMYgalaxyINlouisianaYAYYY

    ICS in Louisiana. About to try it out.

  • Caffiend

    I know we’re all hyped to get ICS going ASAP. So just a quick PSA for those having troubles…

    Make sure Kies is updated

    Make sure your phone is all charged up at least 50%

    Your phone can be rooted, it’ll just get goofy if it’s not stock

    Restart your phone before you begin. Even better, do a quick battery pull. (This will solve 90% of the problems people are having connecting to a PC)

    Resist temptation to unplug and start playing with the phone till it’s restarted completely

    It will be a bit laggy at first, if it’s too laggy for you, restart it.

    Good luck, I’m going to Carvel to celebrate!

    • Df3

      Carvel Rocks!

    • none of these things worked for me but hopefully they will help others!

  • ICSonMYgalaxyINlouisianaYAYYY

    L O V I N G IT!!!!!!

    • Df3

      Yup, no reason to upgrade to SG3 now

      • Benjamin Curtin

        except the extra gb of ram and ICS nativity on it, and a better screen right?

  • Mjerpca

    On step 7 what does select at phone prompt. Do i need another version on kies on my phone. Also does anyone have issues downloading new kies update. Pls someone help.

  • Djjohnnybraciole

    amazing update, one issue, ics eats up all the phones ram.

  • sad

    still dont have it , i go to start upgrading the firmware then it get it 100% and stops

  • Dumbazz

    Oh my god this new voice to text is like porn!

  • Dumbazz

    weird but rejecting calls isn’t working right. Anyone else having this issue?

  • NewZ05

    I didn’t mind redoing my homescreens but my app folders were a pain to get right again. Other than that mine and my girlfriend’s phones are great w/ the update

  • Benjamin Curtin

    LOVE the new update! Just what I’ve been waiting for! BUT I do not like how much more ram stock uses. Waiting for the ability to root it to remove crapware

  • happy

    finally!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Lance734

    I downloaded Kies to my laptop, but when plugging in my phone via USB cable, it doesn’t recognize.  It just keeps saying that it’s “connecting” and the troubleshooting option isn’t working either.  I’ve restarted both the computer and the phone and neither has worked.  What am I doing wrong?

    • kay

      i am having the same problem…can anybody help…

      • ShawnL

        I spent 3 hours this evening getting ICS because my wifes S2 would not recognize. My issue was a dirty micro USB port on the S2. Try cleaning it. I took a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol and chopped the end in half so it’d fit. Worked for me.

    • Mia P.

      yup, i’m having the same problem. i looked it up and people were saying to remove the sd card but it didn’t work for me. i’ve tried everything people were saying here: 
      http://androidforums.com/samsung-galaxy-s2-international/393624-help-samsung-galaxy-s2-wont-connect-kies-3.html

      but nothing worked and it’s driving me crazy. I just want ICS!!!!

      if anyone has any ideas… let us know. Please.

  • Rafael

    I been having problems with downloading Kies… And once downloaded, fails miserably when I’m trying to run it… So I’m upset… No update here… This is total bs, for real why make it harder…Samsung doesn’t care for otas updates like htc.

  • Rosario

    So updated my sisters phone and everything downloaded and is working fine. Im playing around to see whats changed and everything’s looking good. Any chance we’ll get an article saying the improvements or specifically whats changed from stock ICS.

    Hmm, then again figuring everything out is half the fun.

  • guest

    does anybody notice the new contact page?

    • Rlmedic

      My pictures don’t show up and I’m synced to the Max … Any suggestions?

    • baopham

      thats from Ice Cream Sanwich

  • happy

    anyone else not getting notifications for messaning ?

  • Aljimz

    Just downloaded and now my camera app not working .. When I open it it closes and when I go to gallery it says ” media scanning running ” goes black then back to the app . Showing nothing !!!!!!

  • Aljimz

    Help

  • Aljimz

    Fixed !! Had to go to settings storage and tap on sdcard

  • Shawn

    If you do a factory reset after the update your “My Account” and “My Device” merge into Access T-Mobile.

  • guest

    The contact picture for each persons contact page is really small.  Is this happening for anybody else?

    • Shawn

      Yes but that’s because it’s the small picture you added before. If you delete your contact picture you will notice that the picture box is now larger. Kinda like the cover photo on Faceb00k.

      • guest

         Where do you get the option to delete contact pictures if you’re sync’d with facebook?

        • J-Hop2o6

           DL contact-sync from the Play Store. It gives u the option to sync HD FB photos up to 512×512. The regular FB app doesn’t use HD photos, which makes the contact photos look horrible.

      • guest

         Where do you get the option to delete contact pictures if you’re sync’d with facebook?

    Tha market is not working keep saying error package file invalid

  • Ballinouzgx

    Big let down. Phone responds extremely well, but system processes run slower than android 1.5. Did I do something wrong?

  • Guest

    I am going to wait for this upgrade. There is a golden rule concerning technology. If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it. So I will wait for the kinks to be ironed out before I do something. 

  • Avshopper71

    Anyone figure out how to do screenshots? The old way isn’t working anymore.

    • Ibn0721

      Same as the old way, just hold it for a little longer.

      • MarcusDW

        THANKS!

    • Yes it didn’t work for me either, hold volume down button and screen lock button simultaneously.

    • MarcusDW

      Hold it longer now.

  • Shadmaster

    The only problem that I came across so far is that the stock email app. The emails won’t show up. Tried deleting the account and re-entering it. Its connected but no emails show up at all

  • Guest

    Anyone has a fix for the email client. I can’t see any of my work emails

  • 1) the brightness slider is not working for me anymore
    2) emails not showing up …. no new email notification

     

  • baopham

    If you’re having trouble getting the phone to connect via Kies be sure to use the original USB cable that came with your phone.

    • None

      And don’t connect through a USB hub – I had that issue myself.  Theoretically it should work that way but to be safe just connect directly to a USB port on your computer.  (using a good quality cable)

  • baopham

    the update was good, but they kept the original TW launcher – which means no folders, no quick launch dock…somewhat dissapointing…be sure to use Apex/Nova Launcher after.

    • Cole

      GO Launcher works really well!!!

  • MarcusDW

    One thing that really sux is that when you grab the screen to scroll around, you are LOCKED into that direction.  You can’t free scroll anymore!!
    If you are in a Browser or the Gmail app and want to move the screen around in a circle pattern, you can’t do it.  It still works in the Gallery though…

    • Dumbazz

      It’s like they killed fun.

      • MarcusDW

        Is it the same for you?  These issues seem kind of hit and miss.  I may just do a wipe like you said.

    WOW google wallet finaly for the GS2 tmobile. I downloaded it this morning after update.

    • Scott

      Google Wallet does NOT work. This is the message you get…..”Unfortunately, Google Wallet has not yet been certified in your country or on your device/ carrier”

    • Networkjct

      Google wallet his saying its not available in because the carrier has not approved it.

  • Alexgitman

    Wow, this upgrade my phone respond so slow. What were They thinking during testing? Does anybody else have the same problem?

    •  you where the same person  crying for them to bring the update now the update is here, you once again complaining…

      • Guest911

        So…his phone is not slow? And him wanting an update to work properly is crying? Guess he should just be happy with whatever crap they throw his way eh!

        • My phone is not slow….we all had the same update… too many cry babies for something not so important.

        • Df3

          Lots of trolls on the website.

        • Youngtexas_balla06

          Im having problems with my music player, but shit we want everything to be perfect, this why we bye what we buy, you wouldn’t want your food half done, soooooooooooooo we dont want this update half ass

        • Dumbazz

          I had issues with the internet not working and not being able to reject calls. A factory reset fixed this however so people having issues may need to do this.

        • Guest911

          Good point. If your phone is not slow then no one else has the problem. Come on dude – you have to be smarter than that.

        • Guest911

          Good point. If your phone is not slow then no one else has the problem. Come on dude – you have to be smarter than that.

      • Alexgitman

        All I am saying that the phone is a little slow

  • Df3

    New Kies download this mornng, hope it’s less buggy.

  • MarcusDW

    I strongly suggest everyone download NOVA Launcher and gives it a try.  You get the best of both worlds now!  An ICS look and feel while retaining the TouchWiz widgets(this wasn’t possible for me on GB) AND you still get the awesome TouchWiz background features.

    This for me is the perfect setup now and would actually keep me from buying the GSIII right away if I didn’t already plan on giving my GS2 to my moms.

    • guest

      what does DL stand for? I found a Nova Launcher but not DL Nova Launcher

      • Cole Belke

        DL just means download…

        • MarcusDW

          LOL

  • Tim

    One thing I noticed, the “show clock on lock screen” and “show weather on lock screen” don’t actually do anything.

    Screenshot your home screens first – they will all be reset!
    Likes: New gmail, mobile hotspot, wifi direct, look and feel – can’t wait to play around with it more.

     

    • MarcusDW

      My 
      “show clock on lock screen” and “show weather on lock screen” do what they are supposed to do.  I’m diggin’ the weather thing too!

      Maybe reset your phone and see if it will work.  

    •  for the Weather to work, you will need to allow “Google location Service” and for the Screenshot, it use to be called “ScreenCapture” still there just goto your Gallery to find it.

    •  for the Weather to work, you will need to allow “Google location Service” and for the Screenshot, it use to be called “ScreenCapture” still there just goto your Gallery to find it.

    • Aliriano194

      In display settings you need to pick the option to position the clock on the top of the lock screen not the bottom in order to get the weather to show

      • MarcusDW

        Mine works anywhere I put the clock.

  • Youngtexas_balla06

    Can someone thats at home tell me if kies has a update, i heard.they did something this morning also,

    • Df3

      yes, there is a new update.

      • Youngtexas_balla06

        What does it do, i did the ics update lastnight,

        • Df3

          It’s just a kies app update don’t know whats new.

        • Youngtexas_balla06

          Ok thanks, do i need to hook my phone up to it….

        • Df3

          no

  • Guest

    If you can’t see your email in the default email client – you have a bunch of grey rows with no text – touch the option button.  (Lower left permanent button.)  Choose “Font Size” and choose one of the options.  Your email will now be visible.  Took me 20 minutes to figure it out.  Seems the ROM defaults to a null value for that particular setting.  Lame.

  • cspek

    anyone notice the transition when you’re messaging (txting), it’ll pop up and down whenever you have a word suggestion? Anyway to stop that?

    • Rea702

      That is my only complaint so for. I can’t stand that, gives me a headache. Anyway, sorry, I don’t have a solution.

      • cspek

        seriously, it kind of like flashes as you text, it keeps moving up and down.

        • larry d

          YES VERY ANNOYING , makes me dizzy

        • cspek

          i’m assuming best fix for now, judging from the comments is to download the gingerbread keyboard

        • larry d

          YES VERY ANNOYING , makes me dizzy

  • Aliriano194

    The stock web browser gets laggy at times when you pinch and zoom or scrolling. Even in gallery when you pinch zoom it gets choppy at times. Anyone else experiencing this? That my only complaint.

  • Dumbazz

    If you are having issues since the update I would recommend a factory reset. I had to do this because after updating I could not connect to the stock browser. Chrome and all my other browsers worked fine but not the stock. Also I could not reject a call it would lslide as if rejected but then it would rring again.
    Damn my favorite app in the world folder organizer is not working with I c s.

  • Dumbazz

    Kind of sucks because if you want the full new google voice to text you are left with only the samsung keyboard. The updated swype uses dragon. Kinda sucks

  • MarcusDW

    Is it just my phone or did our ICS not come with all that bloatware??

    I was rooted and froze(not uninstalled) that crapware on 2.3 so I’m guessing that’s why the apps aren’t on my phone at all after 4.0.3??

    • Dumbazz

      Ha ha I had rooted my phone but hearing it wouldn’t let me upgrade to stock ice cream sandwich I unrooted

  • MarcusDW

    We got multiple Fonts back.

    I must say thought that the Roboto font is lookin pretty good up top.

    “Display battery percentage” YESSSS!!

      Also thanks for the nova launcher heads up!

  • Mystrobiggz

    ICS is running beautifully on my phone. Smooth as silk. Gmail app looks a thousand times better. Downloaded the stock ICS 4 calendar from the market. Still using Gingerbread Keyboard. It seems to be the best one. My stock browser does everything I need it too. Tried Chrome, no flash killed that for me. Have noticed it uses more RAM, but has not slowed my phone down one bit! Loving it!!!!!!

    • MarcusDW

      U don’t like the ICS KB?  Best KB for me since it’s been available.  And yeah I love the new Gmail!

  • Julz

    Its not working for me..i dont know whats wrong. All its says is its connecting nothing happening..sucks

  • Dumbazz

    Nova launcher ROCKS!

  • MarcusDW

    Man, now you can search your music right in the search bar.  That is awesome.

    Quadrant score averaging 3700 now!!

    • fixxmyhead

      u could do that in GB too. settings>then check music

      • MarcusDW

        You sure right. I forgot you can search a handful of different things.

  • guest

    Any body else having problems with KIES saying need to update to the latest version but when you press the update button it says it already has the latest version?

    • Julz

      No..my issue is kies is not regonizing my device.

      • MarcusDW

        Kies version 2.3.2.1254_20?

        I can only suggest that you try re-installing the software.

        • Julz

          Marcus…do u have a link to update kies 2.3 cuz mines 2.1

      • Df3

        try installing drivers

      • Bobothebar

         be sure to use the original cable you got with your SGS2

    • Guest

      I figured it out.  My work PC was blocking Kies from accessing the internet but Kies never gave an error message to the effect the network connection was blocked.  

  • alfonzso

    Damn Kies either freezes or doesn’t recognize my device. :-(

    • ICS <<<

      uninstall kies , reinstall , restart computer , restart phone , try again should help

      • hey. have tried everything you suggested multiple times. after attempting to connect it states for me to reboot phone. when i do still no luck.

    • ICS <<<

      uninstall kies , reinstall , restart computer , restart phone , try again should help

  • Rudeboyruntings

    The ICS install was smooth, updated Kies before updating my device and it took me all of 15, 15 minutes. Pros: don’t have to use the built in task manager anymore as ICS shuts down apps as I exit, that was super annoying having to close the text messaging app each time I used it. Cons: don’t like how the pattern lock screen looks, its a minor thing but it still irks me a bit. And why did T-Mo have to add google +? Like there’s not enough bloatware on the phone already!

    •  lol and the funny thing it can’t be deleted them…. I don’t open them…everybody happy

  • Nastleford

    So I’ve seen some people post about an ICS Keyboard better than the gingerbread? I updated last night and now there are a couple selections (gingerbread keyboard & google voice typing) but no ICS. i was using Swype and it looks nice, except the whole “flashing” feel you get when it comes up to autocorrect while typing and then goes away and come backs – so I went to GB. Is the ICS keyboard like the calendar that samsung is blocking so you have to get it from the play store?

    Also for others who have it updated already; phone charged all last night, I used it this morning to look at a contact and then used it for a couple minutes for miles tracker and 4 hours later it is at 30% battery. No GPS, BT, Wifi, nothing but sync. Anyone else having problems with the battery? I also did a reboot last night before putting on the charger after the update.

    •  you sync might be draining your battery…. I would advise disable it….. I have 89% charge last night wake up this morning in 85% without charging of course….something is draining your battery….

      • Nastleford

         the sync is email that has always been on before. i have restarted twice also. maybe have to do a battery pull?

        •  Maybe if you goto settings -> Accounts and sync  do you have that setting on or off?

        • Nastleford

           i had gmail, FB (which always have had) and T-mobile Contacts – mobilelife contacts that weren’t there before. that mess up all my contacts last night after the update too. Maybe that was it? guess i’ll see.
          What about the keyboard? Did you get an ICS keyboard?

    • EastVillageDavid

       ICS ate my battery in 5 hours and it was a burning fire brick most of that time.  The day before, my battery lasted 12 hours.  The only change was the ICS upgrade.

      I turned off the GPS, charged the phone to 100% (which went much quicker than with Gingerbread), and then pulled the battery for three minutes in the hope of resetting it. 

      But you know what?  F-you, Android.  I like having my GPS on because I use Google maps a lot, both en route and after in locations.  Why do I have to turn features off to get the phone to last for a day?

      I have the same problem with battery. please go to settings -> about phone-> status. Does Battery status say discharging? mine does.

      Same issue with battery.  Seems to be really bad.  Also, seems like my Radio has issues, weaker.  Also, experienced lots of crashes

    is anyone having issues with the contacts?? I used to have my contacts synced with facebook and i was able to see the profile pictures as caller ID but now i have all the contacts but no pics and no info.

    • Help?

      Hit “contacts to display” then hit “customize” then choose contacts you want displayed. Does that help?

      • Ramon Sanchez-Aviles

        I just restarted the phone and its rebooting let me try it…hopefully that works

      • Ramon Sanchez-Aviles

        nope it didnt work, still i see the contacts but no pictures

          Did you try adding the facebook account through the facebook app? I noticed that if you added the facebook account through the account settings and chose the facebook account under social hub no longer syncs contacts. The facebook app account should sync contacts now.

    Does the update change the sms/messages look? and can u revert to gingerbread somehow if u dont like the update

    • Dumbazz

      I dont think you can revert without rooting to do that. A factory reset after updating to ICS will reset to ICS. The SMS app looks the same. Have you tried any of the replacement SMS apps?

    For those that haven’t upgraded yet…
    If you run into issues after the upgrade either give it some time to smooth out or do a factory reset. I had numerous issues after the update so I FS’d. I didnt want to wait and hope this stuff worked out because one of the issues was not being able to reject a call.
