It seems like Samsung is going to release FroYo for the G5 soon. They've pulled down all available upgrades from older to a more recent build of Éclair. Two weeks ago it was possible to update to a January build KA1 of the Android 2.1 on XEU version of the device. Not this update is no longer available. Today I checked all available versions with their product codes using the registry hack and Kies_1.5.3.10103_64_1.

I've tested all these and none of them could be updated to a later version of Éclair, neither to FroYo :

None in this list is currently upgradeable, maybe for a reason.


I've already installed I5500XWJP9 and it looks running smooth. I am not using its compass, as I have a real compass :-) Neither am I using the Android Market, but some alternative app markets out there so I have no idea whether certain apps will not download. What I find annoying in this build of the FroYo for G5 is that it comes translated in not too many languages and it is probably the only reason that Samsung are still not putting the FroYo firmware up on their update servers. I do not find Russian, Romanian, Bulgarian and other languages which were present in later versions of Éclair.

Btw don't get scared by KIES messages that device could not be upgraded. It is just an ugly translation of the tool in action. In fact this message means that there are not current updates for the the region of the device available at the moment.

Stay tuned for the official FroYo soon !
