    Well, using the Captivate as a case study ...

    Froyo released May 2010

    Captivate launched with Eclair in July 2010

    Captivate received Froyo in February 2011

    So while Froyo had already been out for 2 months when the Captivate launched, it came with Eclair and didn't receive Froyo until 7 months later. This time, the GSII would have been out on AT&T for about a month before ICS hits a device.

    So I'd put an official ICS push to this device sometime in June 2012 (if ever).

    If you want it sooner, there will very likely be a developer release that you'll be able to flash if you're rooted.

    If a phone is rooted, can you manually put sandwich on the phone?

    Well you are right, however, on my captivate, July 18, 2010 Captivate with Eclair around August or September a leak of Froyo *ji6* was released by DesignGears, ran that until I stepped up to Perception *i9000 based* a few weeks later and then when GB was released earlier this year for i9000 based roms switched over to that and ran DarkyRom based roms for the past 2 months then I got my sgs2.. So waiting for an official ics will be a rather long wait but when there is a leak released, then we will see some ics on the sgs2 when that happens but it is still a wait and see as it is just a bit early right at the moment.

    HTH,

    The article makes sense.......considering how popular S2 is and its relative importance to Samsung, and Samsungs head start on working with ICS, it is reasonable to expect an official update perhaps sooner than later.

    I just got done playing with the ICS Emulator, not that big of a deal IMHO. While everything looks a tad prettier overall core functionality is the same. Won't hurt my feelings either way.
