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.

Plenty of custom ROMs to be honest for the captivate (similarity to Nexus S ftw)  Heck there are even Jelly Bean ROMs out for it already.

 

I can't edit the posts more than once...I really don't get that restriction.

Apparently Its a Rogers Razr ICS 4.0.4 leak

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

should I wait for Rogers or go for xda? If Rogers stop loading craps on the software, we shouldn't have to wait at all! sigh!

To be fair to Rogers...I doubt it's adding the bloatware that takes time. (it takes about 2 seconds to push apps to the system directory, maybe a couple hours to compile a new ROM)

 

More likely they are testing the software on some ISO approved schedule that requires them to have the firmware for X amount of days, including back end work to ensure compatibility.  (That said...the GNex doesn't have these problems regardless of ROM)

 

Generally speaking, if you aren't rooted and don't really want to bother with custom ROMs just wait.  GB was and still is a good bit of operating system.
