Samsung Galaxy S2 I9100 Receives Android 4.0.4, Ice Cream Sandwich Update

Samsung has begun rolling out the Android 4.0.4, Ice Cream Sandwich update to the I9100 Samsung Galaxy S2 model.

The company has begun issuing it in U.K. and other parts of Europe where customers are already running the 4.0.3 build of the software.

The upgrade is said to fix some minor issues with the software. It is also supposed to make the TouchWiz UI run smoother, improve the notification dropdown, improve the lock ring circle animation, create a contacts link button on the dialer, remove local search, improve browser notification, improve camera and video playback, and add battery percentage to the display setting.

Samsung has already rolled out the Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich update to Galaxy S2 models in the U.S. including AT&T's Skyrocket variant.

A Christian Post employee recently downloaded the update for the device, and the new software appears to have fixed an issue with the Bluetooth.

Upon purchasing the Skyrocket variant of the Galaxy S2, one of the employees at CP had an issue when trying to connect the device to the Bluetooth speaker system in a vehicle.

The Bluetooth function would connect the device to the system, however, it would not allow him to hang up on a call using the cars controls, leaving the driver stuck in the phone call until the speaker system was turned completely off. Once this was done, the user turned his Bluetooth off and then back on and could not get the device to reconnect until leaving and returning to the vehicle.

Now it seems that the device now has the ability to hang up when in a call thanks to the recent Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich update recently issued to the Galaxy S2 Skyrocket.

When connecting the device to the system, the CP employee found that once the call was finished, it could finally be terminated using the hang up button located on the steering wheel. This is extremely helpful, since Bluetooth in an automobile is essential to avoiding accidents and troubles with the law when the driver receives a phone call.
