Samsung AT&T Galaxy S II Skyrocket users gifted with an (official) Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich ROM which has been leaked for the device which can be flashed in a simple steps. If you’re intrested in downloading and installing that, can follow the easy step-by-step guide right now from here.
Laest week, the Galaxy S2 skyrocket was promotionally featured on AT&T’s Android 4.0 update list and today we’re seeing the very first look. The 4.0.3 ICS build is very similar to that the European Galaxy S II customers were treated to a few weeks ago.
While this is a leaked official Android 4.0.3 ICS ROM, we have no idea about when AT&T and Samsung will make it officially for the Skyrocket release to the public.
Well the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket Android 4.0.3 update looks nothing like Ice Cream Sandwich on the Galaxy Nexus, it does feature all of the system tweaks which make the Android 2.3 seem so dated.
Get started now :
DICLAIMER : Grabi will be not held responsible if you lose data or your device gets damaged in the following of this guide. Proceed at your own risk.
Note : This process doesn’t require you to root your device (no rooting). ODIN is able to flash a new firmware without requiring root access. But your device must be fully charged and simply backup all your secret data since this procedure, according to reports, will completely delete data such as contacts, texts, photos/videos, music, apps and their data and system settings. Means it makes an hard format.
Step 1 : Download the .exe file from here [RootzWiki Thread]. It is a one-click solution which includes ODIN, the popular firmware flashing tool for Samsung devices.
Step 2 : Once download is complete, double-click the .exe to launch ODIN.
Step 3 : Now “Turn off your AT&T Galaxy S II Skyrocket”, take off the battery and place it back again.
Step 4 : Press and hold Volume Up + Volume Down and simultaniously connect the phones with your Mac or Windows PC. Beaware, do not let go of the buttons while connecting the phone or it won’t boot into Download mode. (When your phone goes into Download mode, it should be detected by ODIN).
Step 5: Click Start in ODIN and let the flashing complete.
If you followed the steps correctly, your AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket will now boot into a leaked version of the official Android 4.0.3 ICS ROM.
While its similar to the Android 4.0.3 ICS upgrade for the International Version of the Galaxy S II which looks more-or-less exactly like the stock Android 2.3 Gingerbread ROM that the device comes with. Which gives you the delicious functionality of Ice Cream Sandwich, familiar with Gingerbread.
What do you think about, will AT&T update the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket to Android 4.0 before T-Mobile rolls out the same update to the HTC Sensation 4.0
