We’ve hoped that the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch will be available “soon” ever since February. Unfortunately, a few months have passed and we’re still toying around with custom ROMs and official leaks.
Speaking of which, a new Ice Cream Sandwich build for Sprint’s Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch has surfaced and is now available for download on the XDA forums, so if you’re interested in flashing your handset and dabble with a bit of “manual update”, you should give this new build a try. Join us after the break for more.

Naturally, like every leaked build out there this new ICS version comes with a few bugs so keep that in mind before you decide to go with the update procedure.
Those who decided to update their Galaxy S2 Epic 4Gs to this latest leaked build experienced problems with Bluetooth sharing and Google + contacts sync as well as a few Wi-Fi issues just to name a few, but on the other hand the performance has been increased notably, so before you go on with the update check the XDA forums in order to decide whether or not it’s worth it before following the instructions.
As for the official launch of the ICS update for the Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch, your guess is as good as ours, but it looks like we’re one step closer to the official release. Unfortunately there’s no word on when exactly Android 4 will be released OTA for the above mentioned handset, but we hope Samsung will shed some light on the matter soon enough, before they bore everyone to death.
Until next time, feel free to share your thoughts and updating experiences with us.
Thanks Phandroid for the heads-up regarding the Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch Ice Cream Sandwich leak.
