From Gingerbread to Ice-cream in one mobile step

Over the weekend, I upgraded my Galaxy S smartphone to Ice cream sandwich (or Android 4.0.3 by its official name). So my Galaxy started out as an Eclair and is now an official (ice cream) sandwich, after being a Gingerbread for a few months.

Now ‘in one step’ is a little mis-leading in that I made a few attempts using an Android 4.0 ROM and some guidance from different blogs but with little initial success. The main reason for my failed attempts was an ‘e-signature verification error‘ that prevented the full upgrade to happen.

Help was at hand in the form of a blog and an online video  from the helptimes.com – where detailed directions on the appropriate firmware upgrade as part of an Android 4.0 step-by-step upgrade procedure were provided.

Now I realise I’m still behind, as Jelly bean is now available with some significant accessibility features and of course the helpful videos are already online.

For the moment, I’m enjoying the ice cream.
