A ROM obtained by SamMobile, from a Samsung "insider," shows a custom December 7th build of Android 4.0.1 for the Galaxy S II that melds relatively-unchanged TouchWiz with the revamped UI that Matias Duarte and co. have been slaving away at since 2.3.

We knew it was coming, but that doesn't make it any less painful to see: Samsung has begun the Ice Cream Sandwich skinning process. A ROM obtained by SamMobile, from a Samsung "insider," shows a custom December 7th build of Android 4.0.1 for the Galaxy S II that melds relatively-unchanged TouchWiz with the revamped UI that Matias Duarte and co. have been slaving away at since 2.3. We're proud of Samsung for being relatively fast on the turnaround here, though it seems like there are still a number of kinks to work out, but we can't help but dream (continually, repeatedly) of a world where we at least have a choice to get a stock ROM on our handset of choice.
