    I fired up Kies a few minutes ago and was prompted for a new version .7 After the install there was also a firmware update for my Skyrocket. It is applying as I type. I will report back what changed.

    Finally ICS for skyrocket is here at KIES!!!!!!


    http://www.samsung.com/us/article/android-4-0-explained

    Look at the date of the article 12/11/2011, that's how long it has been ready!!! This is not an OTA update, it has to be done through Samsung KIES

    If you don't have KIES you can download it from this link: http://forums.androidcentral.com/e?l...token=SrV-Pwll

    I wouldn't count on these upgrades to be OTA for the AT&T variants. The original AT&T GS2 wasn't updated OTA and I expect it to be the same for the Skyrocket (Proven already) and the Note (Said to be upgraded to 4.0.4 tomorrow)

    My Skyrocket is on 2.3.6 not working for me, I still get the following "Your device does not support software upgrading via Kies"

    I think this option only works if your Skyrocket is running 2.3.5.
    I think you're right, hopefully they put 2.3.6 as the latest in Kies at some point, otherwise ICS upgrades are going to be tricky. Kind of makes sense it says your device is not supported since running "Firmware Upgrade and Initialization" loads the phone up with 2.3.5


    Finally ICS for skyrocket is here at KIES!!!!!!


    Get to Know Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich | Samsung Cell Phone Article

    Look at the date of the article 12/11/2011, that's how long it has been ready!!! This is not an OTA update, it has to be done through Samsung KIES

    If you don't have KIES you can download it from this link: SAMSUNG
    ...and when you click "See the List" below Android 4.0 updates you'll notice Galaxy S II Skyrocket (SGH-i727) doesn't have an update listed next to it yet.

    If ICS has been available since Dec 2011 for our phone, do you really think people would be posting about installing leaks..?

    Edit: N/M seems to be sort of confirmed by Ping1337's post

    I am trying to return skyrocket to stock from the UCLF5 leak that came out a like two weeks ago. Using ODIN and the .tar file. However something goes wrong. Everything goes back to gingerbread except the baseband version keeps staying the same. I got KIES to update successfully now I just need the phone back to the correct baseband version. Anyone can help?

    Here's a follow-up. I found that the ICS update was available today via Kies. You have to install Kies, then install the update. What I didn't know was, in my experience at least, Kies does not recognize your phone on 64-bit WIndows 7. I found this out after trying on 4 different machines. Lucky for us we have a lot of PC's around. I finally tried a 32-bit version of Windows 7, and the update worked right away. So, the answer is 32-bits.

    If you rooted your phone, and didn't revert back to stock correctly, then kies will keep giving the same message of incompatibility. I had that same problem and it turns out that the stock tar provided by Krane is not 100% stock. Google recovery stock tar i727 and that zip file is the correct tar. No disrespect intended or any negativity toward Krane (he is very helpful to us skyrocket owners)...so please don't take it as anything more than a simple answer and resolution for you.

    Yes I get the same message and most of the time I can't even get Kies to connect to my Skyrocket. I really don't like Kies so far. It is too unreliable.

    I am confused. After reading several posts in the Skyrocket threads, I was under the impression that the ICS update (whenever they flip the switch) would need to be downloaded through Kies. I just had a chat session with Samsung and they are telling me Kies is not compatible with the i727 and that the ICS update would be avaible OTA.

    So what is it? Do any of you have Kies working with the i727? And will the ICS update be OTA for me?

    Thanks for your input!
    The necessary tar file is attached in this video. Hope this helps.

    You don't use Kies Air. You use Kies on the PC/Mac.
