Samsung releases official ICS firmware for Galaxy S III and Galaxy S II


We are sure that many of you remember the leaked firmware for the Samsung Galaxy S III that landed just last weekend. It produced live wallpapers, static wallpapers and S-Voice, just to name a few things. Of course developers were hard at work picking it apart and pulling features and applications to other devices, mainly the Galaxy S II. It now looks like Samsung has opened up the flood gates and made the official firmware for the Galaxy S III, well,  official. It is important to know that the SGSIII leaked version and the released version are in fact different. The leaked version was I9300XXALE8 and the officially released version is I9300XXALE9.
