Samsung Galaxy S2 getting some Android ICS 4.0.4 update love: Update
Since Google first released the Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system late last year with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, we have had months of false starts and problems with a number of capable handsets waiting to get the new software. Today we can tell you that the Samsung Galaxy S2 has been getting some Android 4.0.4 update love.
Recently we had the news that the Galaxy S2 would likely be set to miss out on the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, but as the Android Community are reporting in an article owners of the handset are least getting some good news for a change. While all the focus recently has been on the latest smartphone from the Samsung, the Galaxy S2 is still going strong, and Samsung has been busy pushing out updates to all the various versions of the Galaxy S II.
Trouble is the update the handset was given was the 4.0.3 version of Ice Cream Sandwich, but now though there has been numerous reports that the company has begun pushing out another update to the global and international versions of the handset, and in the form of Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich.
While it hasn’t been confirmed that the Galaxy S2 will not be getting Android Jelly Bean, owners will be hoping this update will pave the way for the next version of the OS in the coming months.
The Android 4.0.4 update is not being made available as an over the air update, and instead is available via the Samsung Kies application. It has been reported to be available for users in Russia and some other regions, so hopefully as the week goes on the update will become available to all users. With any luck the software will reach the various US variants quicker than the last update, and to see if it is available in your area you will have to check via Kies.

UPDATE: It has been confirmed that the update is now rolling out – Make sure you have the latest version of KIES or update your phone by using OTA. (Over the air)
