    So I've been doing a ton of research online to find an acurrate date of when ics will be released and honestly I don't think we will get it until mid July. Why would at&t release a new update to a phone that can somewhat compete with the s3. That's just stupid marketing. I can guarantee you that the update has been available in a stable format for weeks. At&t is.just trying to milk out as much.money from its customers. I would place a bet that it will be around mid July and honestly NO PHONE besides maybe the nexus series has received and update on time. Think about it I have has 5 android devices 4 of them were updated months late. This is something Apple does right. They release stable and on time updates while android releases unstable,laggy and outdated updates. It almost makes me want a phone that runs ios5

    Apples updates are never stable, they are always glitchy and usually cause problems for many phones, that is why they often follow up an update with another update weeks later. Apples updates are only designed for their newest phones in mind, when i had my 3g the more i updated it the worst it ran, and same with my 3gs.

    I don't hate Apple but yeah, the releases are best done on a fresh wiped phone, that goes pretty much for any manufacturer. Wipe, update, restore apps from backup. I had a lot of issues on my wife's 4 with updates until I wiped it clean.

    I just hope it runs stable and battery can last me more than 10 hours with light to moderate use. Currently average 7-8 hrs with minimal use.

    I had an update a couple days ago but it went away and when i ttried to update again it said no update check back later. I heard that at&t release the update for the s2 but shut it down due to some errors. So we should be next in line very close being the gs2. I mean, we better be. Lol. Probably within a week we will hear news.

    Yeah but with the original s2 having so many problems getting the update it may take a while. Truthfully even when the update does come out I will wait a week and see if there are to many problems, if so I will be happy to stick to perfectly smooth gingerbread

    I have the 4.0.4 UCLE2 build on my phone and it works great. Most apps have already updated to work with it. On LTE network it flies

    No the original did get the official update today but its over kies and updating it over your computer can sometimes be a hassle. I'm willing to wait to have an update ota sometime around mid july

    Seems like the "premium" Skyrocket would get the update first to me, too. I am one unhappy Gingerbread camper.

    But if the kies is not capable of doing updates for the skyrocket, then at&t is set to do an update thru them. Has anyone else had a problem registering theirs on sammy's site or kies like i have?

    Well my skyrocket is running 2.3.6 and I get the following message when connected to Kies: "Your device does not support software upgrading via Kies". I just tried it, when it had 2.3.5 I didn't get that message.

    You may want to make sure you have the most recent version of Kies. The version I have for Windows is 2.3 something. Very recent - just before the update. The prior version wouldn't even run, never mind update my phone. 2.0 version or so of Kies never did much if I could get it to run at all.

    I did get the update on my older S2 phone. The Skyrocket should roll out in a week or so. Smooths the thing out nicely.

    Just installed Kies on my PC yesterday and it didn't even recognize my phone. But it allowed me to do other things, just not check for firmware updates.

    Running 2.3.6 and Kies sees my phone but get the not able to do firmware update error...so it is going to be interesting on how they will deliver the update...OTA? or will it require a Kies update?

    Either way I have to think it is delayed for a couple reasons...SG III sales, making sure not to screw up the LTE and AT&T is always last...remember the Captivate delays!!

    I am unable to update via Kies as well. It tells me my device is unable to update the firmware via Kies.

    What's the point of the upgrade if it's unavailable?

    Am I missing something? How would it be possible to update the firmware to 4.0 if it's not been released for the Skyrocket yet? It seems only logical that it's unable to update the device's firmware currently. If it's going to be an upgrade via Kies, perhaps the error message will no longer occur...That being said, I find it ridiculous to have to go through Kies. Correct me if I'm wrong, weren't we originally promised an OTA update?

    It has to be an OTA update. Kies on 2.3.6 just won't update the device. I downgraded mine from stock 2.3.6 to stock 2.3.5 and Kies simply told me no update available. I ended up just doing the OTA back to 2.3.6 until ICS is released.

    Do you think they will give us a heads up date to when it will be released or just throw it out there like they did with the original s2?
