    I followed the XDA instructions but Kies always stops downloading at exactly 69% and gives me this message: Error found in the downloaded file. Do you want to try downloading again?
    Edit: Run as administrator solved the problem.

    I was hoping this would work on my SkyRocket as well, but no cigar. At least I have Kies ready now for when and if ICS becomes available. Maybe the Myan long count calendar theories are tied to this conspiracy by Google, AT&T, and Samsung. Is it possible the Myans saw this ICS event centuries ago???

    I have had most of these issues as well. Sometimes the phone will freeze and go to a black screen for a few moments. If you hold down the home and power button it will take the screen shot.

    After sweating this out for a while, I just got past the 90% hangup by following the info here: xda-developers - View Single Post - I just got the official ICS Upgrade

    Follow that info but basically done by using recovery mode, restarted Kies as admin. I have ICS up and running. My phone was stock, unrooted. Looks great so far.

    I got this to work as well, but be warned, any system created folder will be wiped clean (IE all my side loaded nook books, all of my backups for widget locker and go launcher saved to the SD card, anything I downloaded from AmazonMP3 store that I didn't move into my own music folder, etc). Thankfully my pics were all in a folder I had created myself, so they were still there. Either backup everything to the web, or move all system folders into a self - created folder to hopefully hide them. Good luck!

    I followed the instructions on AC and the update went somewhat smoothly, I did want to backup my device before proceeding, which I thought KIES would allow, but after installing Kies it said that an update was available, so I went for it and prayed.. Like everyone else it took about 15 minutes and seemed to come up OK. ICS 4.0.3 was installed. The home screen looked slightly different, with the Swipe screen to unlock message at the top. Browsing the web did seem a little faster. Pretty much all my Apps ran fine if a little laggy. Had just installed Aces Spades under 2.3.6 and it was running OK, but under ICS It locked up, tried working with the vendor to see if there was a fix for it but to no avail. Think they're working on it and someday the issues will be resolved. Battery life was bad when I first loaded ICS, I have an Extended battery and it was running thru a full charge in under a day. I'll be watching to see if it gets better as it settles in. Maybe Samsung will look at this if there is an issue. So for me its wait and see.

    This was my first update for an Android device, my previous smartphones had been Blackberrys and I did a few leaks,with my Bold's. For the Android Op Sys I would like to be able togo back to an older version if necessary. That had crossed my mind when the apps were a bit laggy and the battery life was draining a little too quickly.

    Have you tried aokp out yet? I ran shostock2 and than I tried aokp and have not looked back! Stock android is better versus Touchwiz!

    HTH,

    I got ICS installed probably took an hour total with my apps reloading. So far all seems good will update later.....Okay so after roughly a days use I have to say I like the ICS upgrade but battery life seems about the same. Runs smoothly with no noticable lag on any of my apps possibly even a little smoother and faster... anyways just my 2 cents.......

    I talked to Samsung support last night, they told me AT&T were in fact testing last week, and were going to release to everyone after Kies down time (today) but had to pull the update. Now again there is no ETA on release

    Hey, I think that my phone just grabbed the update over my wifi! I'm taking screen shots during it's progress with my ipod touch and will post them after it's done.

    DOH! It grabbed the 2.3.6 firmware. I though I already had that installed...
    Oh well. Sorry for the tease.

    ICS will not be an OTA update, it is only going to be available for via Kies or unsupported side loading via Odin.

    Who wants to bet we won't see the ICS update this weekend?
    I remember getting my hopes up in March, and I bet that we wouldn't see ICS until after July 4th.
    ... I hope I'm wrong.

    'very soon' from AT&T could mean anything..it may mean sometime tonight, could be tomorrow, early next week..honestly, who really knows, it'll be out whenever the hell it comes out

    As AT&T did not pull the update notice, I would guess somewhere between Sunday and Tuesday

    Hey Guys, you can update to ice right now.
    1. Open kids diconect phone and choose option Update and initialization of firmware, it will prompt the s/n and model (find it on the sticker below battery)
    2. Download firmware and when prompted connect the phone in download mode.
    NOTE: THIS PROCES WIPPED MY INTERNAL MEMORY.
    Let me know if you succeed!

    lies itsesf tells you how to do that.
    Press volume up and down at the same time and connect the cable (while phone is off), then confirm with volume up.

    Let's bet because I've been seeing it on my phone for the past couple days.
