T-Mobile customers who own the Samsung Galaxy S2 now have access to the Android 4.0.3, Ice Cream Sandwich update.
The carrier finally released the official upgrade for the SGH-T989 model of the Galaxy S2 this week.
However, this is not an OTA update. Both Samsung and T-Mobile are requiring users to upgrade by using Kies software and a computer.
A link to the instructions for the update can be found here.
The Android 4.0.3 Sandwich update for the Samsung Galaxy S2 began rolling out in India at the end of last month.
The company also recently updated its list of countries that have or will be rolling out the Android 4.0.3, Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade for the Galaxy S2 and its Skyrocket variant.
No dates for the upgrade were confirmed for the U.S. But with T-Mobile finally releasing it, other carriers should be following suit in the near future.
The roll out of the Ice Cream Sandwich update has been slow, but Samsung has finally released it on one of the major carriers in the U.S. The Korean electronics giant has also begun selling new a variant of the S2 with the latest Android software pre-installed.
These Samsung Galaxy S2s that come with Ice Cream Sandwich are now available in parts of India.
YouMobile.org received some information earlier this week that revealed that Samsung is now shipping these all new Galaxy S2 I9100 units that already have the software.
Customers not willing to wait for the ICS update for the S2 can instead pick up the Galaxy S3 when it launches in their country.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 comes with Ice Cream Sandwich pre-installed.
