Samsung I9000 Galaxy S gets the official Froyo treatment
One of the coolest smartphones currently in existence just got even cooler. Samsung is already seeding the Android 2.2 Froyo update to I9000 Galaxy S units in selected markets and worldwide availability should come in the following days.
So head to Kies and hit that Firmware Update button to see if you are among the lucky fellas in the first wave. But even if you are not, don't get discouraged just yet - wider availability should be a matter of days only.
And if that's not good enough for you, you can get the latest update through a registry hack that only takes a few seconds. You can check out the update topic at the XDA-developers forums for more details on how to do this.
We already got the official update running on an I9000 Galaxy S we had lying around in the office and we have no issues with it so far. The update even left the user data and preinstalled apps intact. On the other hand it doesn't bring much performance improvement over those latest leaked ROMs we've been seeing so don't expect miracles just because it is official.
Share with us how the update is working for you (if you got it already) in the comment section below.
