updating Samsung sgh -1927R (Galaxy S Glide) to Android Ice Cream Sandwich

Samsung Kies is not recognizing that the device is available for an upgrade from Android 2.3 to 4.0. Any other ways of upgrading?

Hello sluken

That is the ONLY way to upgrade your phone to the latest software unless it can do OTA updates. I would contact Samsung Canada and see if the techs can help you out on their end. Rogers wont be able to help much and will just tell you to try Kies.

I was told that all Software updates have to come from Rogers directly becuase they have their own stuff that they put into the OS?  I'ave been trying to find out about the upgrade since May - with no satisfactory response.

 

Frankly, I'm not sure we will ever see one - Rogers doesn't even list this device in their support area.

Can anyone at Rogers tell us the status of this upgrade for the Samsung S Glide to ICS?

I was also told when I got it that there was going to be one.

I'm pretty sure you'll have to root and install a custom ROM on this device to get ICS.  I highly doubt Rogers will release an update for this phone.

You won't be seeing an update for the Glide. It was not a successful phone in Canada, so both Samsung and Rogers won't make the effort to get an ics update created. You'll have to install a custom rom if you want ics.

Hello mebin2004

Rogers & Samsung will NOT be updating the Samsung Glide to any new updates. The phone did not sell as well like AnonymousUser said thus Samsung & Rogers will not put the effort to update the phone.
