Galaxy S 4G owners, the wait is finally over - Gingerbread is officially available for your device. Samsung threw a couple more fixes into the mix as well, like a Google security patch (vague, I know), camera enhancements, and Wi-Fi enhancements.

Unfortunately, this one won't be coming to your device over-the-air, so you'll have to install Kies Mini and grab the USB cable in order to pull it.

The entire process seems to be pretty cut-and-dried, so it should go off without a hitch. For full instructions, changelog, and other info, check out T-Mobile's Software Upgrade page.

    I'm not happy that the regular Vibrant hasn't got Gingerbread. The devices are mostly identical, you'd think they'd just tweak it and release for both.

      Hopefully it's up next, but jeez - almost a year late.

        You, sir, earned my respect.

        Captivate user, if you are asking how to install CM7, don't. On the Captivate, it is quite a dangerous process. Too easy to brick. In fact, without 3 button combo or a JIG, flashing CM7 there is NO way to come back from it to stock ROM. So don't.
