Official ICS Update Available for Samsung Galaxy R I9103
To all Samsung Galaxy R GT-I9203 users waiting to get official ICS on their device, we’ve got news for you! The ICS update was recently spotted on SamMobile. Although the OTA may be pushed out to your devices very soon, those who can’t wait can download and install it manually right away.
This is the European I9103XXLQ9 Update and it was spotted here on XDA by Recognized Contributor ardatdat. As is the case with every official Samsung ROM, this one is also TouchWiz based. Not being a carrier-specific version, this can be installed on any Galaxy R i9103 and contains no carrier bloatware apps. Here are some more details:
Regions: Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom
You can grab the firmware from SamMobile and flash it to your phone using Odin or Heimdall. Though keep in mind that it will overwrite your recovery if flashed directly, so if you want to retain it, you might want to wait for a custom ROM, or flash a custom kernel with recovery after flashing it.
