Samsung Galaxy S II official Ice Cream Sandwich test build leaked, available for flashing

The first official Samsung Galaxy S II Android 4.0 build is out and is now available for download. Folks over, who got this build from their inside source, say that this build is not for everyone. If you only install stock builds and do no play around with Android on your Galaxy S II then you better stay away from it.

Being a test version, it is expected to have bugs. Initial impressions reveal that Samsung has kept its TouchWiz launcher over the ICS UI, but Android 4.0 elements are clearly visible and you will notice them in the following video.

Calling, SMS, Internet and basic stuff is working, but there are force closes, random reboots and it isn’t all smooth. So it you want to try it out, make sure to keep a backup of everything because chances are that you will be back to your existing ROM.

This leaked ROM should give a boost to the existing ICS development being done by the Android community and we would expect better custom ROMs in the days to come.

    Why are people so stupid that in the rush to update the phone with unfinished software which is more likely to break the phone.

    Just wait for the official version and get a life.
