Months after AT&T's Samsung Galaxy SII Skyrocket got a leaked build of Ice Cream Sandwich, it looks like the device is finally getting an official update. Users at XDA began reporting the update earlier today, indicating that it is available over Kies. Unlike March's leaked build, the official update brings users to Android 4.0.4, rather than 4.0.3, and (of course) carries a different build number. Here's a snippet from the update's build.prop:

ro.build.description=SGH-I727-user 4.0.4 IMM76D UCLF6 release-keys

Of course, rooted users would be advised to wait for a pre-rooted build of the update. Everyone else needs only to fire up Kies, look for build i727UCLF6, and grab the update. To follow the discussion surrounding the new update (and to find various ODIN and other flashables) just hit the XDA link below.

    Haha two weeks after I flash to a custom rom they release this. I doubt I'll go back to stock, touchwiz is so ugly.

      Just install Nova Launcher and you will be good to go and won't have to deal with TouchWiz.

      • BlaineMagee

        Good to know. I jumped to the nightly CM9 builds started coming out I just jumped over to it.

    My Kies says "Please update Samsung Kies to the latest version then update firmware," but it is the latest version of Kies. I even uninstalled it and downloaded a fresh copy from Samsung, reinstalled and have the same message. What is up? Kies says my current firmware version is: I727UCLA3/I727ATTLA3/I727UCLA3/I727UCLA3

      Any luck with fixing this issue?

      • kprawl

        Got it figured out. Didn't have my phone set on TWLauncher. Once I set that it updated perfectly.

      this is what i did. down grade to 2.3.5 using odin 1.85 then put your phone in download mode, open up kies click firmware upgrade and initialization. a box should pop up enter your s/n and model number and is should say it will take u back to the original firmware and do a emergency firmware recovery. i hope that helps

    Can someone upload a video on youtube when they do the update! thanks would greatly appreciate it

    • Jammer

      Go to page 4 of the XDA link. Install Odin 3, download the zipped md5 file, read the thread for directions. Its pretty simple. Look up how to boot phone in download mode. Also, u will need the phone drivers installed on your windows machine.

  • Jammer

    Installed with Odin instead of that POS Kies software.
    Installed CWM recovery
