Yea. That is the only way with the S2 LTE. From what i have seen, mine still says " No updates available."

I guess Rogers is still working on it or Samsung just released it to Rogers now... No one knows until we get the update. I will be checking again during the night to see.
Samsung did state that "The availability and scheduling of the software upgrade and specific models upgradable to Android 4.0 will vary by market and wireless carriers’ requirements. For carrier specific details, please visit your nearest carrier retaile".


OK so Kies. Thanks for the update!

This is so exciting.... from what I remember, kies usually says "this is the latest version" or something. It doesn't say that today. It just says the current version number. I hope this means the update is imminent!!

If the update is done via Samsung Kies, exactly HOW does Rogers influence the release date? It doesn't make sense. 

 

Kies is owned by Samsung.

 

If the update was OTA then I'd believe Rogers was responsible for any delays but since it's through Kies, then Samsung (Canada) is the party responsible for any delays. 

 

Simple logic. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Just read on mobilesyrup.com that the update will be rolling out this week.  Not today.  Oh well.  I've been waiting for an update to see if it fixes my huuuuge bluetooth problem.  Oh well...

Do I need to enable USB Debugging under Applications > Development before plugging the USB cable into the computer to check for updates with Kies? Anyone know?

No, you can just connect via usb. Have Kies open & running on your pc first... You'll see in the upper left that it's asking you to connect your device. Here's a link:

No firmware update notification yet.  Nothing OTA, and nothing on KIES.
