    My Samsung Galaxy Gio has been using Froyo OS. Now, I want to upgrade it to Ice cream sandwich. Is it possible over the air?

    Hello friend,

    Samsung has not yet announced Ice Cream Sandwich update for your device. It might not be announced even in future due to hardware limitations.

    But you can officially install to Gingerbread 2.3.6 update on your device. For this you must install Samsung Kies form the CD provided to you. After installed connect your device through usb and search for updates. ( I would prefer this method instead of over-the -air ).

    But still if you are keen to run ICS, you may do it un-officially but on your own risk.
    For this you have to root your your phone which voids warranty.
    If you are interested you can find many custom ICS roms
    for your device on XDA Forums. But it is not suggested seeing the risks involved.

    Regards!

    Firstly varify that if the official ics 4.0 is launched by samsung or not...!!
    If yes then you can easily update it via samsung kies..!!
    Juat click on check for updates...!!
    Or even by samsung care too...!!
    But if officially not...then dont go for it.
    It can even damage your smartphone too...!!
