The "Will my phone get an ICS update" thread.

I figured I'd put together a list of current Rogers phones and their supposed timeslines for ICS updates.  To avoid all the "ZOMG" why doesn't my phone have ICS yet threads.

"Factory (ETA)" is generaly the eta of the international unlocked version to get ICS.  Rogers would have to release their version of the ICS firmware after that...  Custom ROM availability is listed for reference, in case people are tired of waiting or for phones that won't be getting official ICS firmware.  Most Rogers phones come with locked bootloaders making custom roms difficult / impossible, and certainly not for the faint of heart (unlocking the bootloader will kill your warantee.) Sorry for the format...I had it all custom coloured and everything in Excel.  Let me know if there are other phones you want listed or if you have information I don't.

If it's locked, does that mean the ICS update will not be recieved on the phone or what does that mean? For example, for the xperia arc, it is locked so will the phone still get the update for the users in Canada?

Re: The "Will my phone get an ICS update" thread.

Locked in the list just means it can be difficult to install a custom ROM.

 

The Xperia Arc should be getting ICS.  The international firmware has already been released so, it's up to Rogers to get it out to its users.

Re: The "Will my phone get an ICS update" thread.

What about Samsung Captivate? I know it won't get an update but I think it should be on the list as a NO. I did hear rumours that Samsung will release another update for this phone but it won't be ICS. Not sure if that is true though.
