AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket Tastes Ice Cream Sandwich
By on July 11th, 2012

It’s raining Ice Cream Sandwich updates for Samsung devices. Yesterday, Samsung and AT&T started rolling out the Ice Cream Sandwich update along with a “Premium Suite of apps” for the Galaxy Note. Joining the Galaxy Note is the AT&T Galaxy S II Skyrocket.

Like the update for the Galaxy S II, the ICS update for the Skyrocket does not bring any major visual changes. The UI has been spiced up a little, but the simplicity and elegancy of stock Android 4.0 has been completely spoiled by TouchWIZ. Apart from the UI changes, Ice Cream Sandwich brings with it tons of other new features including GPU rendering for better performance, a much faster stock browser, the ability to monitor 3G data usage, enhanced keyboard and copy-paste mechanism, an updated lock screen, and more.

The update is available only via Samsung’s KIES software, and not via OTA. While installing the update won’t wipe your phone clean of any data, I will highly recommended Skyrocket owners to factory reset their phone once they install the Ice Cream Sandwich update on their phone.
