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.

Thanks for the list.  I await the update for my Sony Xperia Arc.  Why does it seem

to take so long for Rogers to process these updates and then make them available?

Is it a staffing issue?  Adding all of that bloatware can't take THAT LONG.

It sucks how in Canada, we can't even get 4.04. Kinda makes me want to get an iPhone (even though I HATE Apple and its products) just because iPhones at least get updates regularly.

Skladman, Google XDA - you'll find loads of information about how you can get ICS for lots of different phones & "pure" ics at that!

AT&T said the Captivate Glide will get ICS and that was back in March. http://gizmodo.com/5895686/a-bunch-of-att-android-phones-are-about-to-get-an-ice-cream-sandwich-upda...

So still waiting so the guys at XDA can make a custom ROM and I can load it.

I own and use the Xperia S. I spoke to Sony Canada in which told me Rogers has the update and they are the ones taking the long time. It upsets me because its a flag ship phone from Sony and Rogers takes its time updating the phones they have. No excuses or anything.

Hopefully by the end of Aug we may get it.

awe.. i feel irritated on waiting for the update for so long.. 😧

 

on another topic.. Do you know if Beats Tour's function are compatible with Xperia S? Like Microphone, VOlume COntrol, etc?

Well it does not because Sony uses a different headphone jack then the rest. Its still the same 3.5 mm jack but the gold jacks inside are a little different. The headphones will work but not the controls. This is something Sony has failed to see & change.

If you want to use the Dr Dre headphones, they come with a another normal cord you can use OR if you only have that one, you can plug in the head phones & press & hold the Volume + & it will work.
