Wireless carrier T-Mobile has officially announced plans to start the delivery of Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich for its Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G devices on October 3rd.
The new platform upgrade will be delivered to users as software version T769UVLH5, and will be available for download only via the Samsung Kies desktop software.
According to the mobile phone carrier, this is only an optional update to the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), yet it also comes with a series of performance enhancements for the device.
In addition to the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, the upgrade will also bring along a fix for the Mobile Hotspot Icon location, while also resolving an issue with the Add Email option.
“Manual download to T769UVLH5 (ICS): If you want to update to T769UVLH5, you can update via Samsung Kies. Ensure you are on the latest version of Kies prior to attempting the update,” T-Mobile notes on its website.
The wireless carrier also warns users that they should make sure the previously released software update for their handsets has been installed, namely version T769UVLB7 / T769UVLF4.
The T769UVLF4 update was made available back in July as an over-the-air software
. Based on Android 2.3.6, it was meant to resolve various problems the handset was found to be affected by.
Additionally, Galaxy S Blaze 4G users are advised to charge the battery inside their handsets at least at 50 percent, so as to make sure that they don’t run out of juice during the upgrade process.
They will also need a data connection, along with 20 MB of available memory (File size of update is 15.7 MB).
Those who would like to learn more info on the new update should head over to T-Mobile’s support website
for that. Specific details on how to perform the upgrade are available there as well.
