Your smartphone and / or tablet is just begging for an update. From time to time, these mobile devices are blessed with maintenance refreshes, bug fixes, custom ROMs and anything in between, and so many of them are floating around that it's easy for a sizable chunk to get lost in the mix. To make sure they don't escape without notice, we've gathered every possible update, hack, and other miscellaneous tomfoolery we could find during the last week and crammed them into one convenient roundup. If you find something available for your device, please give us a shout at tips at engadget dawt com and let us know. Enjoy!

Official Android updates

  • Samsung Galaxy S II: Ice Cream Sandwich is now available for manual installation to the US Cellular variant of this smartphone. [TeamUSCellular, Samsung] [Thanks, Adam]
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9: Like US Cellular, AT&T must've put this one on the back burner and then forgotten about it. Sadly, the Ice Cream Sandwich update isn't available over the air, so you'll need to use Samsung Kies to install it. [Android Community]
  • HTC One S: T-Mobile has announced software version 2.35.531.10 as an OTA update that will be deployed through the end of the month. The software update is intended to fix connectivity and stability issues, but if you're currently on version 2.35.531.7, the update isn't necessary. [TmoNews]
  • Motorola RAZR HD: Telstra has released its Jelly Bean update for this handset from Motorola, which is available for OTA installation. [Android Australia]

Unofficial Android updates, custom ROMs and misc. hackery

Other platforms

  • HTC 8X: Word is that HTC has begun delivery of a small update for the 8X smartphone that's designed to resolve intermittent WiFi connectivity issues. [WMPoweruser]
