If you're still toting the US Cellular-connected Galaxy SII, good news – it seems the device's update to Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 is ready to go and can be installed using USC's "Simple Upgrade Tool" any time now.

The update, which carries software build number FK19, brings with it all the Ice Cream Sandwich goodness some other carrier variants already enjoy including Face Unlock, TouchWiz improvements, and more.

While US Cellular's Galaxy SII may be a bit late to the Ice Cream Sandwich party, it's nice to see continued support for the device, 10 months after it first debuted on the carrier.

If you're tired of reading and ready to grab the update, grab a snack and head over to US Cellular's lengthy update instructions document, linked below.

    You have to wonder why some folks who don't have any of the resources and access to proprietary knowledge that the manufacturers have can pump out a Jelly Bean ROM for these units almost a week after the OS goes public yet the companies that have everything they need and then some, yet are still releasing updates that are two versions behind.
    It takes the Open Source Devs about a week to two weeks to get it working and these guys are still releasing updates to phone who have had them for over a year thanks to people who have one hand tied behind thier back.
    Just rediculous.

      Manufacturer isn't to blame as this phone is identical in hardware to the sprint model. US Cellular either held back the update on a particular issue or has a rather slow testing program.

      Is the version released by Google really *THAT* awful/incompatible that it takes a team of programmers weeks/months/years... just to get Android to work on an Android-based phone???? (ICS was released by Google 19-Oct-2011.)

      What actually goes on during those 14 months???? I would think it could be done in 0-10 days (at most), instead.
