Samsung has been working on the value pack of IceCream Sandwich for Samsung Galaxy S but Samsung denied the rumors that they have no such plans to release any such type of Value pack for Samsung Galaxy S but now sammobile has released the leaked version of Value pack of ICS for Samsung Galaxy S.
The Value Pack includes some features from Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, such as Face Unlock and the ability to take pictures while recording a video, but is based on 2.3 Gingerbread.
There is no confirmation whether Samsung will release this Value pack officially or not because Samsung denied such rumors of value pack for Galaxy S (may be because of poor performance of value pack on galaxy S).
Well who cares now if Samsung will release the value pack or not it’s already available for download on XDA forums, follow the instructions below on how to download and install Value Pack of ICS Android 4.0 on Galaxy S
