ICS Officially Released for SGS2, Root Acquired

Now is the time for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. In the last few weeks, we’ve seen dozens of devices receiving ICS, RUU leaks, and so on. And when we first heard news that Samsung was starting to roll out ICS for its immensely popular Galaxy S II line, we knew that it was only a matter of time before the OTA would be captured and instructions on how to root the tasty treat were released to the wild.

Now thanks to the work of XDA Forum Member Faryaab, this is a reality. Using the previously covered CF-Root for the Galaxy S II by Recognized Developer and Senior Moderator Chainfire, Faryaab has posted instructions on how to get your newly updated device rooted and ready for all the root-only action that you can find on these forums. And if your SGS2 isn’t lucky enough to have received the update already, the instructions even walk you through manually installing the update as well.

I9100XXLPQ (Official Final Build) DO A WIPE BEFORE FLASHING!
Base Firmware: I9100XXLPQ (4.0.3)
Build Date: 8th March 2012
Modem: XXLPQ
CSC: OXALPQ
Change List: 223505
Kernel Version: 3.0.15
Chainfire’s CF-Root XXLPQ

To get your SGS2 up to date and rooted with the latest in Google-flavored tasty treats, head over to the development thread. You know you want to. This is like peer pressure, only in the absolutely best way possible.

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]
