T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II Gets A Software Update

Samsung Galaxy S II needs no introduction. Samsung has already managed to sell 20 million units of the powerful Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone in less than 10 months of its official launch. This handset was launched last year exclusively for AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint customers in the US. Samsung Galaxy S II was originally shipped with the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) Operating System. The international version of this handset has already received the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) update. However, the Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile variants of Galaxy S II are still waiting to taste the Ice Cream Sandwich.

T-Mobile recently started rolling out a new software update for the Samsung Galaxy S II. Before you get too excited, let me tell you that, it is not the much-awaited Android 4.0 ICS update you’ve been waiting for. The T-Mobile’s variant of Galaxy S II was facing the problem of random reboots from a long time. The latest update fixes the random reboot issue as well as it brings stability improvements. The complete changelog is posted after the break.
