    Awesome was when the update was stopped before I could get it on my handset, hopefully it is with us soon.

    That said I am already looking forward to an Ice cream flavored android, lets hope Samsung will not take so long with the next upgrade, or at least for Cyanogen mod to start supporting galaxy S
