    It depends which carrier you are on, it is already out for people on 3, and maybe other networks I'm not sure. If you have SIM free, Samsung have announced that you will only get it after it has been released by each network (which is ridiculous IMO). You could look into installing a custom ROM with ICS, I don't know much about that but the other people in this thread might be able to help you

    Are you trying to update via Kies or Over-The-Air?

    I go;
    Settings > About Phone > Software Update > Update

    It connects to the server and responds by saying there is no update avaliable.

    Connect your cable and update via Kies; it isn't available OTA yet. Ensure you backup everything prior to updating.

    Better to check here:
    https://sites.google.com/site/rizandroid/ics
    and
    https://twitter.com/#!/SGS2Update

    Tis a script that checks for updates every 6 mins and tweets as soon as it hits the KIES server.
    First link is a list of all ICS releases out so far (UK At bottom). Both links by the same person.

    I connected my phone to Kies but how do I update it? Kies keeps asking me to install the latest Kies update, 2.3.0.12035, over and over again and that's the only thing that happens.

    It should inform you that there is new firmware available in the 'Firmware information' box. :erm:

    Firmware information:

    Please update Samsung Kies to the latest version and then upgrade firmware.

    I click upgrade and it wants to update to 2.3.0.12035_16, which it has done about 5 times now.

    Hmm... try uninstalling Kies and re-downloading it from the Samsung website.

    A long time afterwards... Is your phone rooted? You can use Mobile ODIN to flash the upgrade on your phone without losing data if it is.

    Or you can just flash it with Odin and don't need to root it at all...

    I'm not sure if the data is preserved when flashing with Odin.

    It is, make sure you use an upgrade version though and not a clean wipe version (I think a few exist in some places).

    Though I would still recommend rooting and using titanium backup in case.

    This is a ridiculously unlikely request/question, but here goes:

    For widget locker, I currently have the standard ICS unlock circle but with four icons around the outside, all of which are white. I really want to have it so that they are ICS blue (whilst the padlock and circle stay white), which I know the hex code for, is there anyway to change it? Just the four icons around the edge, nothing else.
