    I was able to download the ICS update yesterday at about 9 am. The phone was stock unlocked and I was not rooted. I followed the kies firmware update and initaliation. Back up your data if you go this route.

    To get the phone into download mode shut the phone off. next hold the volume and power buttons down at the same time. Then follow the directions on the phone it will ask you to push the up volume button. Now you are in download mode.

    On the ICS update, I don't see NFC support, and my data disabler app is not working well at all, and there is plenty of AT&T bloatware.. Cellular data does not reintitalize fast as it did in 2.6. Battery seems pretty good though. I may just root and go to cm9 and be finished with AT&T firmware.

    Just finished. Pretty painless process. Not noticing the lag that some are experiencing. Hoping the battery life has improved.

    I'm still getting 'Your device does not support software upgrading via Kies.' And it says I'm still on current firmware at 2.3.6.

    a few days ago i was having trouble getting it to recognize my phone as well. i switched USB ports, and then it started workings. its weird because the other USB port still works. but i guess kies wants me to use the other one. im also on a MBP

    For everyone trying to update on a Mac:


    The problem we are all having is that the Mac version of Kies is 1.3, and you need 2.0 to update firmware. No phone can be update using Kies on a Mac.

    In fact after intense amount of Googling I finally found this page: Software Upgrade Samsung If you look at the tips sections (near the bottom) it states that to update firmware you need a Windows machine.

    This is complete bull.

    so I tried to update, got halfway through and encountered an error. Kies told me to use the firmware recovery tool which I have tried numerous times, but in recovery mode my phone is not being recognized. I have removed the battery, put it back in, hit the power button on my phone which is supposed to put the phone in recovery mode, and reconnected the phone to my pc. Kies tries to do the recovery but my phone is not being recognized as being connected. Anyway, what can I do at this point?

    So the update went ok. Obviously I have to re add all my folders (and apps) to the "desktop". Question...how does one go about re sizing the samsung power widget? Normally I'd have it where I'd swipe left or right for all the options. Now it's showing - all options.

    This is not an android issue. This is a Samsung issue. Most phone makers do their updates over the air without having to hook up to a computer.

    Do we have to upgrade back to 2.3.6, or can we go straight from 2.3.4? And, if I am reading this right, I am going to have to download all my apps and settings again?

    Uh yeah... That's not an Android problem. Kies is Samsung only. To write off Android completely based on pure Samsung software issues is just ignorant. Quit whining and buy a damn Nexus or HTC if you don't like it.

    Here's a better example of the samsung widget I'm referring too. I can re add it , however there's no option of making it smaller (like I had before i updated to ICS).
