That depends. Are you wanting to manually update it an the official version without having root, or are you wanting to know how to root it and install a custom version of ICS?

So far I can only find instructions to do it in Chinese (its on their official site). Are you writing from Asia, or do you need an English version?

An English version is better.

Official build is a good place to start. If you manually update and still dont like it, then you could consider rooting.

Might make sense to try that first.
