US Cellular finally updating the Galaxy S2, with Ice Cream Sandwich

Posted In News - By AndroidPress on Friday, December 14th, 2012 With No Comments »

We may be sitting in a place where the Galaxy S3 is often talked about. And also at a time when Jelly Bean is often talked about. But that being the case, we probably should not stop thinking of the Galaxy S2 and Ice Cream Sandwich. After all, US Cellular has just announced an update for that handset.


That said, those sporting a Galaxy S2 with US Cellular should probably move forward and grab this new dessert. Ice Cream Sandwich is arriving as version 4.0.04 and with build number FK19. This update will bring goodies to include what was, and still is described as a “more intuitive interface” along with some enhancements to the notification bar and Face Unlock. The notification bar enhancements include icons having been updated in the pull-down menu.

Otherwise, Ice Cream Sandwich also brings some improvements to the text input and editing as well as encryption. The encryption deals with both on device and the SD card. This update will also bring some pre-loaded apps to include Google Play Movies & TV as well as Slacker Radio.

With that, those ready to update will need to have a Windows computer with the SimpleDL app installed. And for those worried about how, worry not as US Cellular and Samsung have a detailed step-by-step that will walk you through the whole process.
