New Android 4.0 ICS ROM for the Samsung Galaxy S II Leaks Online
The good old developer community have managed to yet again get hold of another beta release of the ICS update for the Samsung Galaxy SII.
The release version is named I9100XXLPB, and has a build date of 29 January, so it’s fairly recent indeed. And according to users who have flashed their Galaxy SII with this pre-release firmware, it would seem to be a big improvement over a previously leaked version of the ICS update.
As you can see from the picture above, the update has an improved UI compared to previous ICS betas, and according to reports the latest version also has better battery performance too.
This leaked version of ICS for the SII seems to be the most stable useable version yet. However, there are still areas that are either a bit iffy or do not work at all yet – like the GPS functionality. Also, there is apparently an update notification that refuses to go away. Check out the video below to see the update in action.
If the fact that a few things are still not working hasn’t put you off and you want to give the latest update a test run you can follow this link to download the files required. Once you’ve done that you’ll also need to download this file to find a step by step tutorial for applying the update. You’ll also need to root your Galaxy SII – files and tutorial can be found here.
Remember, it’s important you know what you are doing though, as if you don’t it can go horribly wrong and will most likely void your warranty.
