Firmware

ICS update Galaxy Note maybe delayed by Samsung.

According to Sammy Hub Samsung has started with their ICS updates for Galaxy Note in Q2
Sadly we know this allready we have tweeted this many times..
April = Q2  But some extra information…
Samsung isn’t happy with the bugs on ICS for Galaxy S II.
Samsung may have delayed the ICS update for the Galaxy Note.
This could mean later in April or maybe in May.
But still we put our money on the end of  April.

Samsung even stopped to release dev roms at the moment for the Galaxy Note, this is also the reason why Samsung has put out another Android 2.3.6 firmware for the Galaxy Note.
Things that Google still hasn´t fixed in Android 4.0 is the battery.
Many people are complaining about this after the Samsung released the ICS update for the Galaxy S II.
Hopefully Samsung will find a way to fix this problem.

We keep you up to date!

Not only with Note, but I’m disappointed about Samsung because of their software politic. I don’t say other phone manufacturers are better; they are not. Most of them don’t offer any software updates for their phones, but the Samsung politic is just plain ridiculous. I’m European, and I had up to 4 different products, and most of them are still stuck with Android 2.3.4 (no Kies update available; not even 2.3.6). I paid the whole price for these products (no arrangement or carrier offer because I knew carrier-specifics CSC are NEVER updated up there after the phone launch). Now I… Read more »

What does ICS bring to the table? Anything ground breaking, exciting? Nope…hardware acceleration, new menus, new layout, but for the average day to day user, probably not much.
Gingerbread 2.3.6 LB2 is running SMOOTH on my note.
Sammy can keep ICS until they or google get the bugs fixed. I’d rather have it delayed a couple weeks, than have FC’s & reboots.

The problem is every comapny want to have own interface integrated into android and cause really big problem to make it work. IF they just drop it and all will have fast releases and less bugg to fix. Best is release vanilla android as soon it release and have options to install touchwiz/Sense/Moto etc…. with addons package. Just like 3d party launcher. Best of 2 worlds.

I am happy user of SGS II. It seems that there are many children using it. And parents of those children spent a lot of money last summer in order for their children to have hottest toy in that moment. Now, the toy is not so shiny, and children start to cry. “We wont toy to shine again. If producer cant make my toy shine and hot again, we will never ever use toys from this producer again”. I personally use Skype, Camera, Gmail and Calendar, few games, navigation, viber, twitter, polaris office sometimes, applications for local news and weather,… Read more »

you’re right, it is possible for us. which we believe we are a very small percentage against all other users like With The Samsung galaxy s2, but understand that samsung never serves its users. most people with samsung as my uncle did not even know that the cell is updated, and as many more, so if we are a small group so whay do not pay attention. think that with that crap called BADA will succeed, impossible andriod roks, IOs roks. BADA suck will always be so.

HTC was first with ICS. And no public beta release from them.

When will you all understand that all current devices that have shipped with Android 2.3 have imprinted some kind of user experience in their owners! Samsung, HTC, Motorola, LG etc. can’t use the ICS default interface because it is Different! The ordinary Joe will be confused and wouldn’t be too happy (at least in the beginning) with the change! Yes I know that we all want stock ICS (including me) but Non of the big companies will do this for the power users because: 1. We are a really small user group compared to the whole 2. We can modify… Read more »

only thing i want is to have lag-free 3rd party launchers and browsers. because everything is pretty laggy and it makes me mad when i see something goes frame by frame. i don’t care about the ics or stuff like that. but yea, we keep hearing bad news by the way.

Not surprisingly that this happens in samsung but for those who have a galaxy note do not expect a big change, is like buying a car and change the color not more
no more Samsung for me.

i wondering this website will never report to samsung users and preferences, what all want

Will you use Samsung in 2012?

i select yes but my real answer is not like others

Have anyone seen an official update to ICS for a device other than the Galaxy S2??? NO!!! Samsung are doing their Best to roll out these updates as fast as possible but still ICS have its problems! There are bugs that have to be addressed and this is why most of the companies are still waiting for ICS to mature! There will be an update for the Note when it is ready! for now I’m happy with the performance of a rooted stock XXLC1 Rom!

I everybody should give Samsung a slack, my previous phone was a motorola milestone which recieved 3 updates in 2 years. My GN has had updates about 6 times already in 3 months. I’ll wait for ICS patiently.

Next is called Jelly Bean (note the letters going up in alphabet with each release ;))

For me so far, After updating my Galaxy S2 to ICS 4.0.3, although felt a bit cheated, but overall, I’m still satisfy with the performance of my SGS2. I still think ICS 4.0.3 worth the upgrading.

i should say: Gingerbread 2.3.6 is very good. Installed ICS on SGS2, and it´s not what you people are waiting for… So, calm down and enjoy your device with gingerbread.

Android is not as great as they say after all. All hype and no action. Should we wait for the bug free version of ICS? Maybe they should call their next firmware a “Butter Cup” or “Cup Cake” or “Blueberry Pancake” or “Blueberry Tart” or “Syrup” or “…..

Seeing that so many “F” ‘s are floating around, I also would like to join the ban wagon of torching Samsung’s undying incompetent software management!! F… them all!! Of course, what do we expect from Korean make.
