    Still not received Android 4.0 ICS update

    I already came to know that the ICS update has already started rolling out for my Samsung android handset. But it is a few days and i am quite disappointed for not getting the notifications about the update so far. Is there any other way so that i can get the update? What are the usual options for getting such update?

    You will not get any notification for updates
    The other way to upgrade your phone to ICS your phone should be rooted .
    Download rom manager after you are rooted. From the android market
    And flash clockwork mod recovery.
    After flashing open Rom manager and select download.
    Here you will get all the upgrades compatible with your device
    Just download the rom ( in your case download ICS rom)
    And install it
    For more better understanding go to YouTube and type how to root and how to install custom rom in (Your device name)
    I hope this helps you

    My dear friend
    I am sorry to say that you haven't mentioned your samsung handset model number.
    So its very difficult for me to tell you whether your handset will be upgradable to Android 4.0 ICS.
    So my dear friend mention your Handset model number.
    But i can help you with one thing.
    You can Google about your handset and check its Operating System from their or within your Handset.
    Then you can check whether it is upgradable for further version of Android like the Android 4.0 ICS or not.
    This way you will came to know a lot about your handset OS and its updated Version.

    So i hope this will be helpful.

    Thanks a lot.

    Re: Still not received Android 4.0 ICS update

    Hello friend,

    See not all Android devices are capable to handle ICS due to hardware limitations.
    This is why manufacturers don't announce updates to certain Android handsets.
    Generally, Samsung rolls out updates only to their high or high-mid end devices. As of now, ICS isn't announced even for a powerful device like Galaxy S and it wouldn't announced even in the future. So it your device isn't in the to-be-announced ICS list, you won't get any notification.

    But, if Samsung has already released ICS updates for your device, and you still haven't got any notification, you can do this:

    - Install Samsung's KIES software on your PC. You also have to install .NET Framework 3.5 or above to run it.
    - Connect your device to PC through USB cable and select Media Player.
    - Now run KIES on your PC.
    - You can search for updated if any, from KIES and also download and install them through it.

    Regards!

    Once the Update is released for your device it will automatically be available for your Device through Samsung. As of now not all the devices from Samsung gets the ICS update so be patience you will get the update for your device sooner.

    Mean while dont try to update the device manually by rooting and installing a custom ROM, better option is to wait for the actual update, All the best.

    Hello

    It would be very helpful if you tell me which handset you are using.

    Samsung has just released the ICS update for galaxy s2, and high end phones

    Its already out and you can get it by connecting your phone to your pc or laptop via samsung kies.

    If any update is available for your device then you will certainly get it with time as it takes time from region to region.

    Just connect your device and kies will tell you if any update is available or not.

    Thank You

    Re: Still not received Android 4.0 ICS update

    Hi,
    In order to find out the device has received a update or not you can navigate to "Settings" from the application drawer and then select the option as "About Phone" there you will find an option to check for software update. Tap on the menu so that you can see if you have received any update also please make sure that the internet connection is available in your device. If you are not receiving an update through the phone then fire up Kies in your PC and then select the option as "Check for Firmware update" if the update is available you will be notified. The reason for not receiving the update might be an reason due to the region you are in so check with Samsung Service center to be sure.
    Hope this Helps.

    OK, you cant get notification on your phone for ICS upgrade.for upgrading to ics if officialy it is arrived you have to do one of following methods.
    Before Doing following methods backup your data first.

    1)Go to customer support and flash your phone with latest firmware, they flash your firmware for free of cost.
    (I reccomend this)

    2)connect your phone to computer and upgrade to ICS by using your phones pc companion,this method requires internet connection to your pc and pc companion with drivers installed.(use CD that come with your mobile.)

    My dear friend you can check for the update manually on your Samsung Android Handset.

    If you have not received any Android ICS update notification then maybe your handset is not compatible for receiving the ICS update.
    In that case you can not update your phone to Android ICS.

    Otherwise you can manually check for updates from your Android smartphoneby going to the update settings and notifications bar.

    Or you can contact any expert who can help you updating your Samsung smartphone.

    Thanks.

    Re: Still not received Android 4.0 ICS update

    Hello friend,



    I will help you to solve your problem,don't worry just follow as i say.

    1.Firstly mention your device model in next questions to get correct answers.

    2.If there is any official release of ICS update for your phone there won't be any message popped up.

    3.When you connect your device to PC then if your version is up to date then it will inform you that you have a latest firmware for your mobile.

    4.Now you can click 'OK' option so that and follow onscreen instructions and you can update your phone.

    5.If you are doesn't popped up with any firmware update but announced that update is available then you need to wait some time such that it is available at your locality.

    6.if there is no official update available then also you can update but it could be dangerous for your phone.

    7.You can do it by watching the specific video at YouTube.

    All the best....................
