Isn't it pathetic that Samsung cant release ICS update even for its flagship phone 'Galaxy S2' even after 3.5 months after the official ICS release? With the Android release cycle being 6 to 8 Months, 3.5 to 4 months is a long time for update release.

Seriously?

shouldn't a leak arrive earlier? I mean maybe that release date is for kies, progress on the leaks has been quite good, or is it just wishful thinking

It's really pathetic for Sammy's, they're doing it so slow.
We all know that it will be just "Touchwized android 4.0", so why there is such delay in progress?

I would wait without single shout, if
they release it with tw5.0, but, probably, tw5.0 is saved for GS3

I have flashed a few ics roms and there is nothing about it that really blows me away. I really dont know what all the hype is about. I would say that MIUI is without a doubt the best rom out there.

Are you living on the moon? There are already tons of ics leaks for the sgs2 with TouchWiz. It looks 90% like gingerbread... And is tw4 not 5

Yeah totally agree. If you haven't flashed miui you don't know what your missing. Google should make it the standard.

+1. What I don't understand is why Samsung are delaying it so much since (as someone pointed out) the source code has been around for a while and the majority like stock better than touchwiz
