    HTC Galaxy S II 4G — Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 submission delayed by Samsung.

    as correct as the telco is at providing support.

    Sorry to be a nit picker but...

    "HTC Galaxy S II 4G — Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 submission delayed by Samsung." (under Telstra)

    ???

    Any word on Jelly Bean for Telstra Galaxy Note?

    I have the HTC incredible s with virgin and it never gets an update. Is my phone not worthy ?

      @Steve D Got it in one.

      Nothing to do with the phone, its the carrier thats not worthy.

        Wrong, it Was HTCs decision. You can get it officially from htcs developer site. I have it running on my incredible s, but its fairly buggy. HTC were really lazy and I will not be going with them again unless its a nexus device

      Please do not take this as being disrespectful to you but I am curious. It has been well-known and well-documented since the birth of Android that updates are a continuing problem and failure. If updates to the OS were important to you, then why did you buy an Android phone?

    Does anyone know if there is a way to get a Vodafone Galaxy Nexus (yakjudv) onto the official Google build without voiding the warranty (i.e. rooting)? I had a Vodafone Nexus One and there was a sneaky way it could be downgraded and then upgraded onto the Google build - no rooting or wiping of the device required. I've got 18 months on this contract to go so it'd be nice to keep the warranty...but waiting for updates is shitting me! And 4.2 is out now and I still don't have 4.1!

    I thought iOS updates for iphones were regardless of carriers due to apple issuing them over itunes etc?

      Yea, don't see the point of adding iphone under each operator. Misleading to people who don't know that iOS updates are not operator dependent (which is about the only good thing about an iPhone:-))

    Jeez when is this GS II update getting here?

      Honestly, I think they've given up on the sgs2 updates and are concentrating on the 3?

    hurry up Vodafone I.can't wait any longer!!

    Optus, would you pls just say you know nothing about Android and just let HTC release upgrades as they please? you ppl can't do anything to the software other than ruining it completely with ur bullshit bloatware that nobody has no use of anyways. stop being a joke and give the green lights to HTC ASAP! cheers!!! if u really believe ur crappy apps have any use for anyone, just put them in the bloody play store so ppl who want them will download them. just release the freaking jelly beans already.

    4.1.1 has already dropped to my Galaxy S3 on Vodafone. In fact, it dropped last friday.
