Is there an ETA when this should be available to in the system updates. I checked and my phone still says that it is up to date at 2.3.7.

Hey Korey,

Thanks man i downloaded your version last week but quick question. The leaked version you posted is the same as the OTA right? Mine is working great and i really dont want to flash back to gingerbread and wait for the "OFFICIAL" OTA from Sprint. Let me know what you think.

Both should be the exact same

Yes, they are identical. If you loaded my leaked version over the past fews days you already have what was announced here. So no need to roll back to GB and update OTA

You give the Nexus S 4G the ICS 4.0.4 update before the Galaxy S 2, come on!!! I thought the Epic 4G Touch was the flagship Phone... And this is how we're treated...!?! WOW Sprint... Really, Wow!!!

If your leaked version is not an official signed version it may disable the ability to do any future OTA upgrades.

Sprint does not decide which gets the update first. That starts with the manufacturer. The Nexus, being pure Google with no manufacturer or carrier software loaded on it, is much easier to update the software on.

Updates are pushed out over a few weeks. Your phone will get a notification when it is its turn.

Whatever made you think that the Galaxy S 2 phone was the flagship phone? Unless the phone has Nexus in its name then it is not an Android phone running 100% pure stock Android and will generally not be among the first to get new Android OS updates. I'm not saying this is always true, but the Nexus phones are the ones that are supposed to be first. The Galaxy S 2 phone's updates are heavily customized by Sprint and Samsung. It has TouchWiz and Sprint has to decide if they want to add any bloatware to the phone. The Nexus S 4G's updates come directly from Google. Sprint has no say in what Google does to the OS on the NS4G phone. Sprint and Samsung simply provide the hardware drivers to Google, nothing more.

Exactly. Tardy or nonexistent updates (and the horrible, non-erasable bloatware) is why I'll never buy another non-Nexus Android phone. Going to Amazon now to order the Nexus S 4G for $50 (since I'm out of contract!):  http://wireless.amazon.com/?tag=battleforthew-20
