New Android Ice Cream Sandwich update available for Samsung Galaxy S II for VodaCom, MTN and Cell C users.


Hi. I'm currently 33 years old and I'm a full time web developer. I love my wife and... my two cats! The main goal of this blog is to help other South Africans with product reviews, how to articles and updated science and tech news. There are many things that's not very clearly explained like how to do your tax or how to renew your car license for example. So hopefully this blog can be useful to others.

      Hey. Yes. A friend who works with me got his Cell C update on Friday. Maybe it updates in some weird sequence or something. Keep on trying.

        Hi, so it’s me again.

        On Cell C network with the Galaxy S2 and it still says no update available… I have tried over the air upgrade and via Kies but still nothing. I’ve even formatted my phone and still no update. Does anyone have any clue as to what i can do to upgrade my phone… This is killing me day by day… Please help!

    Just showed update available via Kies for MTN S2… Finally!

  11. Axen says:

    I see the update is out for MTN in my KIES but it is not allowing me to download. Gets to 2% and says that there is an error in the file, then closes. My phone is undisturbed and plugged in the whole time

    • Francdore says:

      Hey. Maybe it’s because everyone’s trying to download now at the same time. Maybe the server can’t handle the traffic.

    Hey there just wanted to make sure and confirm, i officially just received the firmware update from vodacom… Upgrading to ICS in a few minutes!!!! Yay!!!!! 🙂

  13. Lynton says:


    My phone told me some time last week and again this afternoon that there is an update for my phone. I download it over the phone (without Kies) but after both times the phone reboots, says installing firmware….gets to around 40 % and then reboots and says failed to install firmware 🙁 I don’t have access to internet on my PC without using my cellphone. So stuck in a catch 22. Any ideas?
    P.S. I am on Vodacom

  14. Donald says:

    Kies says update *yay* but as above 2% then dies. *looks for error 37* 😛

  15. Madelein says:

    Hey guys my phone had the update, i installed it and am now a happy ICS user….. Maybe try doing it without KIes?? I have wifi so it worked better that way for me….

  16. Marko says:


    So, I just picked up my new, shiny S2…and am very frustrated as I can not update it to ICS. I am on vodacom, and every time I click on Software Update, it says that there aren’t any updates available and when plugged into my mac through Kies, it says that my firmware is the latest one…
