I think it's the server you are downloading it from. If it's Kies, try updating it to the latest version but if it still doesn't work, then it's probably your internet.
Sandy, 18 Mar 2012Hi, It happened with me too. I tried updating my software almost 8-9 times and every time it ... moreHi! Thanks for your reply! In your 8-9 times of trying to upgrade it, was your phone in the recovery mode where the screen has the message "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies and try again."? (with the images of a phone and a computer and in the middle of them a yellow triangle with an exclamation point?)
i have an unlocked SII and when connected to the KIES it shows an update but after going through with it in a short while an error message displays that i need 300mb of free disk space. anyone with same issue and how do i get around it? Thank you in advance if anyone answers the post.

It happened with me too. I tried updating my software almost 8-9 times and every time it reaches till 30-40% and it used to give error of 'Operation timed out'. After lot of research on internet, I found that this is due to load on Samsung server or your internet connection link to the server gets disconnected. There is only one solutions that you need to keep trying till its get completed. As I said, I managed to update after 8-9 times.
I hope you get an update without many tries.
oh ya my bluetooth problem still there. I think 1 of my program kill the background service. But i've no idea which one of it.
i Just update my SGS II to 4.03 ICS. I failed my first updated, actually it's already finish d/l from kies to 100% and the green robot appear at my Samsung, but it failed to load to my Mobile. All i did just take out the battery and restart again after that just plug in the cable again and try to reupdate. Lucky me, my second update success. After 100% and the green robot appear at my Samsung, the data was starting to trasnfer to my Samsung.
All the menu that i set before, just reset to normal. But the program that i installed still there.
Almost all my program is working.
Total call recorder for Samsung is not working because it's not supporting for ics yet.
Extreme call blocker is not working either. But i click for the fail safe and lg mode, everything just fine. Can block call that i don't want.
GT racing, the tilt steering is not running properly. I don't know how to calibrate it.
Asphalt 6 GT is working perfectly.
Camera and video is working perfectly, but at first the preview mode is not update automatically after you took a picture. All i need to do just reset camera setting, everything just working normally again.
The other game like defender, where's my water, all angry bird is working perfectly.
Flash still working. Just update your flash at play store to the new flash which is already support for ics.
I was testing with dolphin browser hd open website which need flash, it's working normally.
I do not feel an improvement in battery endurance. I feel a bit worse actually.

Worlder, 16 Mar 2012Hi, I've updated to the official samsung ICS 4.0.3. Totally disappointed!!!!!!! When I saw... moreIt is because Samsung blends its TouchWiz 4.0 in ICS.

Hi! I'm from the Philippines, and I'm currently downloading version LP7 (aka ICS) via KIES. Head on to Samsung KIES to check if the firmware upgrade is available in your region. I'll be back to post my hands on experience with ICS once all data have been ported to my unit.
