As we all have heard, sadly, ICS will not be available through Samsung because of the lack of memory available in the SGS to run Touchwiz.

However the community isn't happy, XDA will probably find a way to get ICS on your SGS.

If you feel you should complain about the lack of ICS on your device, you may do so in this thread. However, other threads about the subject will be closed / deleted, since one thread should suffice.

Consider this a warning too; We strive to keeping the forum clean, and if anyone ignores this, disciplinary action will be taken.

Edit2: Samsung might be rethinking this strategy: http://www.theverge.com/2011/12/27/2...upgrade-review Hurray!

What was wrong with the last thread?

Anyway, this is kind of a bummer. Shows that 18 month program was a whole load of hot air.

Also, the claim that Touchwiz won't run on top of ICS is trash. I wonder if the leaked S2 version can be ported. Perhaps making our own "official" rom could be quite effective way of getting them to buck their ideas up?

EDIT: Actually, the 18 months was after the S was released and the S has been out of 18 months already (Wow time flies), so point is void.

I've signed all online petitions, but I'll be happy if they just release AOSP Compatible Drivers for all the components of our phone.

Maybe we should spam Google, asking them to tell Samsung to release drivers at least.
