My kies doesn't find the update now either. At first, it found the update and started to download it. Then Kies told me to restart the phone. It was not there. I tried it again and Kies says I have the latest Firmware. My firmware is still Gingerbread. My wife has the same phone so I tried her phone. Kies says my wife's phone has the latest Firmware. She still has Gingerbread.
Is this happening because everybody is updating at once. I called Samsung and his computer told them Rogers S2lte does not have ICS yet. I called rogers and they sent me an email in how to download ICS on S2 LTE.
Important: Before performing this update you will need to download Samsung Kies. Click here to download the software. Ensure that you have a backup of your information before upgrading to Android 4.0.
Has anyone checked to see if bluetooth hands free is working on ICS update. It works great on gb, but I hear it doesn't work on android 4.0. Please confirm. I need hands free with my car speaker kit (Motorola T505) and afraid to upgrade until I'm sure it will work. Also if I don't like ICS upgrade can I roll back to the previous ROM? When performing the upgrade does the process backup the existing system and data, or overwrites everything?
I have tried three time now to update my Galaxy S2 through Kies and keep getting hung up with a 'Crypt Error' at 69% completed download. What's going on and how can I get it to work? Any help would be appreciated!
When you said the T505 "worked" with ICS, to be more specific, could you initiate a phone call, and clearly hear the person you called, as well as play music through the T505 speaker. I've heard the media audio works fine, but the phone audio doesn't.
Yes the bluetooth call quality it good. I talked to my wife on the way home for about 20 minutes and didn't have problem with it.
I have Vlingo and AIVC installed, although I tend to use Vlingo. As soon as I connect with bluetooth, Vlingo opens up and prompts for a voice command. If I cancel, I can then initiate Vlingo again by pressing the phone icon on the Motorola. I can dismiss Vlingo using the phone icon again.
Voice actions didn't work for me when I had Gingerbread. I would press the phone icon, it would just make an irritating tone, and then nothing would happen. I haven't tried it since upgrading to ICS, but I find Google doesn't understand me very well anyway.
Give Vlingo a try if you haven't already.
I did play music on the way home as well, and that worked. ICS allows you to control your music on the lock screen. I don't know if you've used Rdio, but I have it and the controls to skip, pause and go back appeared on the lock screen. That was quite impressive.
Anybody know why the ICS lock screen feature where you can jump to camera etc doesn't work? From android.com:
New lock screen actions
The lock screens now let you do more without unlocking. From the slide lock screen, you can jump directly to the camera for a picture or pull down the notifications window to check for messages. When listening to music, you can even manage music tracks and see album art.
It was my Data plan! Officially, tethering should not have been working before.
Hope this helps someone else out there!
Stupid thing was, support said I should try calling Samsung to see what they would say. "Have to send in the phone." was the response. Morons. Great products, support was a bit poor. At least it was easy to get a human quickly, probably because ALL their responses are simplistic useless doodoo.
