AT&T’s Samsung Captivate Glide receiving Ice Cream Sandwich via Kies

Another Samsung device is getting it’s taste of Ice Cream Sandwich as the hot days of summer near an end. AT&T has announced the availability of Android 4.0 for the Samsung Captivate Glide, making it just the latest device to receive the honor (even if most sights are set on Jelly Bean at this point).

The update will only be available via Samsung Kies, where it should be up for download now. Kies will be the only way to get the new Android version for the Captivate Glide. No over-the-air update is planned.

    Updates like this are why I’m coming back to Samsung after Motorola screwed us all over.

    Kies is another reason why Android is so fragmented. OTA only please. Better yet, Nexus only please.

    I have samsung Captivate glide and this Kies is not updating my phone at all. Its stuck on *Firmwire in progress* and its still on 0%. this is pissing me off. My hope were up and now going down. I’m so depressed. ._.

      Kies sucks ass! I had multiple issues trying to update my Galaxy S II and had to 3 different computers with 3 different outcomes to finally get an update. The third time on a Mac finally worked.

    My phone wont even connect to the bloody kies program and now i’m stuck trying to find a way to manually do it without kies being an asshat.

    One of the worst software I ever came across.

    Not pushing the update OTA is just stupid and lazy on Samsung/AT&T’s part. Customers that aren’t tech savvy can’t and don’t have time to do this.

    They said the lock screen was going to have the option to unlock to certain apps … my phone does not have this

    why not just root and flash custom ROMs? I’m running 4.1 on my Captivate (non-glide). and it runs amazingly smooth with very few bugs. some ROMs aren’t good for everyday use but I highly reccomend remics ROM. its amazing.

    My update went smooth as can be but the “upgrade” is buggy as heck. It freezes or the android app stops running. *sighs* When it works, it’s much faster and has some neat tools but it never works for long.

  • Civilgal

    AT&T announces the roll out with a text, but not the cancellation of the roll out at all. I guess it is a good thing I didn’t have the necessary cable with me when I got the message, but cripe.

    My phone always freezes with this hole android.phone.com thing after a phone call. My internet usage has doubled because my internet is always being used when I don’t even have anything open or being downloaded. I cant connect to kies through media. When I visit websites I can’t zoom into them like I used to. And this hole syncing thing is just confusing and randomly starts by itself. I want my old phone back.
