[Video] Android Ice Cream Sandwich Ported To Samsung Galaxy S II



Google in their Galaxy Nexus launch event couple of weeks back also introduced their latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS. Samsung confirmed that Galaxy S II will get ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich OS) update but it will take time. Few deys back ICS code went public and we saw many ports for Nexus S, Galaxy S and Nexus one.



But everyone were waiting for ICS to port on famous Android device the Galaxy S II. Today a developer name @xplodwild have partially successfully ported ICS on Galaxy S II.

The ICS build for SGS2  is still in alpha stages, and audio, modem and quite a few other things are not working. Still I would suggest Galaxy S2 owners to try out this alpha build so as to get a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich, until the official update from Samsung lands.

Check the video of Galaxy S II running Ice Cream Sandwich OS 4.0:



The ICS SDK now on Galaxy S II has also the touch panel buttons but developers claims that in future work they will remove it. The rest ICS looks pretty smooth on Galaxy S II without any lag and other major issues. If you want to install this port of ICS on your Galaxy S II you can follow the guide here

Note:
I haven't tested this yet. Please use it at your own risk.
