Samsung Galaxy Y is a low-end Android phone that was launched with Android 2.3.5 and was recently updated to Android 2.3.6 software update. Since it is a very low specs phone, it won’t be getting Android 4.0 ICS officially, but well, you know how developers are. Android 4.0 ICS for Samsung Galaxy Y is now available unofficially.
Android 4.0 ICS brings a brand new UI with lots of new features and battery performances. ICS is already available unofficially for many low-end Android phones: Samsung Galaxy Ace, Galaxy Gio, Galaxy Mini and Galaxy Fit. Check after the jump for the full tutorial.
