The moment I saw that software update reminder, I got my hopes high, hoping that I’ll be able to finally use Ice Cream Sandwich on Galaxy S II! But they aren’t as fast as I unthinkingly hoped for.
Anyhow, Samsung released a “minor” firmware update for their Galaxy S II (GT I9100G) users (in India), pushing installed version to Gingerbread XWLA1. Being a minor update primarily for bug fixes and improvements, it is duly available Over The Air and via Samsung KIES.
Do note that OTA installation shows ~50 MB of download size but KIES seems to download entire updated firmware which almost weighed 500 MB (somewhere near this).
Regarding the per se improvements, the most obvious change is the lock screen (swipe to unlock – refer screenshot’s) and the blue highlight which appears when scrolling isn’t possible has been tuned down (looks neat now!).
