    They're up to FD26 at XDA and it sounds like it fixed a lot of the remaining bugs. I wouldn't be surprised if there's only one more "leak" and then we're gold. I'm going to wait until the final rooted OTA is available. I can't muck about with test ROMs because I need a working phone.
    The latest builds - heck, most of the FDxx series but particularly FD24/26 - have been daily driver status. My only beef with it (corp. wi-fi) is also now resolved.

    Running the latest FD26 leak myself... http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1623876 and it's by far the most stable and smoothest run version yet. Not one issue yet and the battery life on it is just insane.

    Lol, try it with a 3800mah battery! With heavy use, I can go nearly two days!

    From the Samsung ICS update page:

    SAMSUNG

    Only one of 16 US phones/Tablets has an update to ICS. This hasn't changed for weeks.

    Its not looking good for us any time soon.

    Even more ominous, the only phone that was updated is a Nexus device that was updated from Google. On the flip side, JayWill has posted that the most recent build is pretty close to release quality. Hopefully that is a good sign.

    I'm still holding out for an official release of ICS, but I'm starting to get kinda antsy. It feels like ICS should be coming any day now but it's not.

    I was trying to wait for an official update from Samsung and Sprint. But instead I bit the bullet and went ahead and rooted my phone and installed AOKP build 37 on it. It runs very smoothly.

    The ROM I'm using now is rocking the FE16 leak and it's running smooth. The best part is that (and I'm hoping I'm not jinxing myself) I haven't gotten any 4G reboots!!

    I don't get to much 4G where I live so I don't normally use it. But I haven't gotten any reboots at all! Everything is running so smooth.

    I'm running AOKP Build 37.

    The earlier leaks seemed to have a big problem with rebooting while on 4G, but this one seems solid. I'm using this ROM:

    I will probably purchase Nexus devices from here on out. I'm still enjoying my GSII but am getting tired of waiting for the latest updates. I didn't heed warnings about Sammy's slow stateside updates.

    Skipped the current Nexus as it wasn't a huge upgrade. But going forward...

    I literally only want 4.0 for Chrome compatibility. Rooting may be the only solution?

    To get ICS sooner, yes. I use Chrome on one of my tablets and I love how I can still access all my links from my desktop

    Chrome is still screwy on our phone as of the latest available ICS build. It's a Chrome issue though, not necessarily our phone. Hopefully Google gets it sorted out sooner rather than later.

    You don't need to be rooted to get the OTA update.

    does anyone have a clue when we may get the update? Im guessing Sprint/Samsung will make us wait until after the SGIII is released

    Most likely after they catch enough people in the 'gimmie new' net. then they will drop it. Thats what i think at least

    why release it when s3 coming out with ics and there trying to bring in alot of pre orders. it will defeat the purpose.

    Well the race is on. Will the SII get ICS update before the SIII is release on 6/21?

    I'm guessing not. Just shows how hard it is to debug the custom carrier versions.

    I'm glad Google is trying to address this problem buy having several Nexus phones on different carriers, should be much easier to update vanilla Android than the carrier customized versions. They probably will be without 2 year contract discount though.

    I don't see why Samsung would **** off their loyal customers in the hopes that one or two people will order the SGS III for full price just for the software upgrade. Sprint just needs to get a move on and get the upgrade released.
