First (leaked) Official Samsung Ice Cream Sandwich ROM appears

galaxys2icsThe latest major Android refresh was only released on the Galaxy Nexus a short time ago, but Samsung have been busy updating their current devices to Ice Cream Sandwich. A beta release, leaked by a Samsung insider, shows their progress on the Samsung Galaxy SII. Most of the basic functions are working, but with many force-closing apps and random reboots, it’s an unstable release which isn’t recommend to anyone just yet. While it has only showed up so far on the GSII, there will be other devices updated, with the final builds arriving early 2012.I hope. Perhaps unsurprisingly, TouchWiz has made the jump over to Android 4.0 too, and while many are passionate about the stock ‘vanilla’ look, it’s understandable given that many consumers out there are already accustomed to TouchWiz – updating to a completely new look and feel may be somewhat of a shock to some!

See a video of the GSII with ICS in action after the break.
