AT&T seems to be in a roll when it comes to its Android-powered smartphones getting updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the latest version of the Google mobile operating system, whether officially or through leaked ICS ROMs. First up, we finally see the HTC Vivid 4G get first dibs on the ICS update in US shores thereby beating the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch of Sprint to the ICS punch. Then, just yesterday, another very capable handset of the wireless provider, the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket 4G, got a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich through a leaked ICS ROM which is said to be near the final build of the ICS update for the handset.
This time around, it is the turn of the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G to get a leaked Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich ROM for that matter. As to be expected, the leaked ICS ROM for the handset looks like it is virtually identical to the official ICS update that hit the original version of the Samsung Galaxy S II a couple of days back. Early adopters of the leaked ICs ROM who were brave and adventurous enough to flash the ROM to their respective Samsung Galaxy S II 4G handsets reported that that the ROM is heavily overlaid with TouchWIZ, the custom user interface of Samsung. Aside from that, the leaked ICS ROM brings other treats to the handset such as a multitasking menu and app compatibility.
