Weird Samsung Galaxy S Update
Ok…….. So a weird thing has just happened, I plug my Galaxy S into kies and I get the normal your device has and update available and I am thinking great they have released Gingerbread for my phone finaly, which is supposed to be relleased this month on all networks.
Here is the weired bit, my phone has updated to froyo, even though it was on that before but this time version 2.2.1 kernal version 126.96.36.199 FROYO.NEJS2 , basicly it is froyo but with the standard android parts left in rather than the version that Samsung has removed some of the standard function.
Dose this mean that Samsung will soon release future updates via over the air update like normal Android devices, I am not sure but I hope so because as we all know even with Kies recent update it still sucks.
Another wired thing is although over the air is enabled, you now have to sign up for a Samsung account on the phone rather than over the air update using the google account, which could mean Samsung are still trying to control the update service, but only allot less than normal.
Watch this space to see what happens 🙂
** Also the Samsung Galaxy Europa has all so just revived the Froyo update, I am doing that one now as I right this. **
