has anyone received updates to ICS for any Samsung devices.
I have Tablets and phones and even a Samsung Washing machine but no sign of ICS.
ASUS have received it and I cannot see why Samsung are so slow in getting updates

Are you expecting a ICS update to your washing machine?

You'd have to ask Samsung.

They're due to start rolling it out to some devices over the course of this month "supposedly".

My washing machine got it this morning but my drier is now jealous because it is stuck on Gingerbread...

An Ice Cream Sandwich in a washing machine sounds messy.

It's taking a long time for ICS updates to come out because ICS has significant changes from Gingerbread. There's enough integration and testing work that it takes months just getting the core platform working and stable, and that doesn't take into account any work that needs to be done on skinning the phone (e.g. TouchWiz on Samsung, Sense on HTC).

It's a universal problem, not just Samsung-related.

As others have mentioned, it sounds like Samsung will be pushing out updates for the SGS2 starting this month. The Note shouldn't be too far behind. It'll take a while for them to get around to updating the older phone models (if they get updated at all).

I have a Samsung freezer that has had icecream sandwich in it for a while now. A freezers hardware is more compatible with ICS than a washing machine. If left it can end up full of bugs

My Samsung Fridge/Freezer recently received an ICS update to the freezer component only. Unfortunately the fridge component is stuck on Eclair due to constraints with the device not being able to support Touchwiz and anything newer than Eclair. As a result of this the ADS (Automatic Defrost System) failed resulting in a melted Eclair but frozen ICS.

The current test versions for the SGS2 and the Note are both 4.0.3, stands to reason others would be the same.

I flashed a custom ICS rom to my Samsung front loading washing machine last week (SuperSud 4.0.3)

Since then my powerbill dropped about 2.2%, its got amazing power management and water use.

Clothes are about the same when it comes to cleaning though.

re your tag line
I think you should realise that Second  person plural of the verb To Be is Yuse as in 'Yuse Guys'

English 101



stevenz: The current test versions for the SGS2 and the Note are both 4.0.3, stands to reason others would be the same.

"You are" = "You're" - Not "Your".    "They are" = "They're" - Not "Their" or "There".   You probably mean "lose" not "loose".
On the internet, wasting time, since '89.
