(Updated) Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Receives Ice Cream Sandwich Update

Update: Apparently a number of you are receiving the update via OTA, contradicting what the above document says. 

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 owners woke up nice surprise yesterday as T-Mobile released an optional Ice Cream Sandwich update. T-Mobile does give a quick note for everyone thinking of upgrading — advising them that the Ice Cream Sandwich update will wipe the home screen layout, so be advised of this change before proceeding ahead with the update.

The update requires manual installation via Samsung’s Kies software, and will not be delivered via any future Over-the-Air (OTA) update.

    I got it for my wifi only tab last week.  Much to my surprise it worked perfectly.  (Previous updates have often randomly hung during the update and required a power cycle.)  Not only that everything was preserved – I had expected to lose some data or apps, but all that went flawlessly.  Heck even my rooting and su was kept.  Except as mentioned I had to put icons back on all my home screens – I really wish they had at least migrated the placement information.
