SGS_froyo

Fresh off the presses (read: Twitter), @SamsungUK has just tweeted saying that Android 2.2 (Froyo) is now available for the Samsung Galaxy S "on all networks." As this is SamsungUK,I'm guessing that means in the UK only, but I've tweeted back asking for clarification just in case - although whether I hear anything back is dubious at best. Regardless, I'll post here once we have some clarification. It looks like the update will have to be applied manually, through Samsung's KIES software.

To anyone unfamiliar with the situation, this update has been a long time coming after having been delayed a few times - which would explain why people were fairly pissed. And now it is finally rolling out - 7 months after Froyo was released, and a few weeks after Gingerbread dropped. But hey, better late then never. Right?

    let's be honest - sgs is a brilliant device but it is really lousy out of the box - the lag made me want to tread it in the ground several times. the unbearably slow email app (worked on my aging win mob like a charm) , the occasional freezing of the system and few other annoyances.... question is whether this release would cure all these problems.
    but there is the community. And just like those guys at xda used to do with win mob, they continue their cool work with android. I still can’t believe that an 18-year-old girl with the help of others could develop a blazing fast rom which should be adopted by sumsung as their own (Darky).
    Bottom line 1 – i understand why people like iOS – it is a smartphone for people who believe it would bite them had they done something bad to it. Steve, sorry, but i kinda like doing what i want with my property and the chance of bricking my device is a thrill in otherwise boring xmas time.
    Bottom line 2 – Samsung, do you know that there is a website called XDA developers? A lot of smart people there, should you need a hand...
