samsung-infuse-4g-android-gingerbread-update
Last Updated: April 9th, 2012

A little over two months ago, AT&T released Gingerbread for the Samsung Infuse 4G. Turns out that it had some "issues," so the update was yanked, leaving many users with half-functional devices and others update-less.

After taking the update back to the lab and Frankensteining on it for a while, Samsung has now made available the new build (UCLB3 for those who are into knowing that sort of thing) for Infuse 4G owners. Like with most Samsung updates, you'll need a copy of Kies Mini to pull the update. Once you have that, connect your phone, select 'Kies (Firmware Update), and the rest should be easy peasy.

Changelog:

  • Improved Copy and Paste functionality
  • Redesigned Multi Touch Software Keyboard
  • Download manager for long running HTTP downloads
  • Improved power management and application control
  • Notification Shade: "Flight Mode" added ("Silent" removed)
  • New Fonts options added include Choco Cooky, Cool Jazz, Rosemary
  • Keyboard Changes: Android Keyboard with Wider Spaced keys and Quick Keys at the top
  • New Widgets: The name of the content provider will be listed on the widget list along with the widget name. Previously only the widget name was provided.
  • New Widget: Traffic (Android) added to list of available widgets
  • Menu Changes/New Apps: Downloads and Google Books added new, Promotional pre-load of Angry Birds removed.

    An update to Gingerbread at this stage is completely irrelevant and an utter failure imo. Most, if not all of those infuse owners, have already updated to something better (like CM 7) or another worthy ROM free from bloatware and other crap.

    I gotta disagree. My kids have these phones, complain about battery life all the time, can't use video chat on the Google+ app, and wouldn't have any clue how to use a custom ROM (I can't even convince them to use a custom launcher, despite the fact that they always tell me how much they like the way mine looks). It's great news for them. Oh, and I got it to actually work...eventually. Kies mini wouldn't recognize their phones from my laptop, but did from my daughter's older laptop.

      Update: having quite a few issues as well. Phone seems to loopingly restart quite frequently. Notification bar will disappear at random as well. Looks like I'm going to have to use Odin as well at this point. Further bulletins as events warrant for the three people who might care.

    I am having all kinds of problems with this update. Bricked my phone and I had to use odin to get it back to working state. Not very happy with Samsung/ATT.
