  44. Hi neal,

    Will there be ICS update for Samsung Galaxy fit s5670

  45. Hi,

    My Samsung Galaxy Pro (rooted) is not starting (shown the first screen – SAMSUNG) even i done wipeout factory reset… Can you help me

  46. How is it their is no update for galaxy sl oh!! comon it has 496mb ram and an awesome 1ghz processor and it has the capabilities to run ICS I am so dissapinted with Samsung really they are lazy!! please tel me der will be ICS update for my phone…

  47. I believe that Q1 for the final release of efficient ICS is reasonable. The Beta for Galaxy S2 has been tested and still has 70% room for improvement. Many of the functions does not work i.e Camera, Detection of SD ad External SD, Plenty of Force Closes. I say, better be patient and have a full working OS than something that is half cooked and we end up blaming Google or Samsung for our impatience.

    Thanks Neal for all your Help.

  62. please get it on hTC Incredible S… please…

  63. What r d minimum requirements for ics 4………. i hav galaxy s plus….
    pls tell ????

  64. What about Samsung Galaxy W? I’m going to buy it, badly need the information…

  65. Hi,

    I know there has been little information regarding ICS getting upgraded to Samsung Galaxy W’s but I am not familiar with how these updates happen (I’m only looking into stuff for santa presents so I’m a bit lost..). Is it likely that it will be updated due it beening quite recent?


  66. Will the Samsung Galaxy W be getting ICS does anybody know?

  67. And Optimus 2X is getting ICS officially.

  68. Claiming that Galaxy R will get ICS….and the adding unofficially is highly misleading. First of all Samsung Galaxy R is probably one of the least popular phones among developers right now. (Plus it’s not even properly promoted by Samsung e.g. there’s no way to find it on the most of national websites). The only meaningful resource that belongs Samsung Galaxy R is the impressive army of ordinary users that nobody gives a shit about. So to sum up: things are going really wrong with our device. It’s safe to state that there’s no aftermarket development at all in the moment. So it’s really doubtful we’ll get anything sooner unofficially than officially. Officially we’re enjoying :( GB 2.3.4 in Europe, unofficially we’ve got one custom kernel so far. I don’t want to be misunderstood guys. I appreciate the job you do here. But how can anybody say that we’ll get ICS unofficially in such circumstances?

  69. what do u mean unofficially?

    u mean there will be developed xda roms and such?

    if that is what u mean, there’s no reason to inform us about that, and that is understood that they will develop roms. the question here is are they going to make official SAMSUNG updates or not!

    • Officially is by the phone manufacturer, custom ROM are available for Android 4.0 for most of the phones they are not official ones.

      That is what is describe on the table above (Official Launch)

    • unofficially means sources other than SAMSUNG! IT CAN BE XDA ETC.!

  70. lg optimus 2x will get the ICS, its confirmed by the LG officially

  71. will there be upgrade to new android 4 ice cream sandwich in samsung galaxy s plus????
