Then we will guide you in the due course of the article on how you can easily update with this ICS build. Though this version of firmware is still in the alpha stages and is the unstable version but if you are an ultra-excited person then this is for you. Please be informed that this is not an official update released by Samsung Electronics and there is still no ETA on by when the official update of ICS will be arriving for this handset. Also, in the process of applying this update, you need to root the phone which will void the warranty.

Over a due course of this article, we will see on what are the list of quick pre Requisistes you need to follow, followed by which we will check on what is the procedure to update ICS Android 4.0 in the next page. For your simplicity, we have broken this article into two different pages wherein in this page we will see the pre Requisistes which you need to follow and in the next page the procedure to apply ICS Android 4.0 firmware.

Note: PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS UPDATE IS STRICTLY NOT FOR THE USERS OF Galaxy S GT I9000 or for other similar Galaxy Users. This procedure should only be followed by the users of Galaxy Vibrant users only. Also, as of now we don’t have any update on reverting back to the original firmware, so its better that you note down the exact version of your current firmware.

    I’m assuming the 911 does not work? Or does it work with this build? I know the major ROM developers said they would no longer develop for the Vibrant, because they said that 911 didn’t work on non-samsung ROMS.
