Though this says its for i5800, it works for i5801. No risk, no explicit backup, etc... I'm not sure why we r struggling with unknown 3rd part SWs?

Samsung hasn't released the upgrade everywhere. Canada has it, but Latin America doesn't. I have a Latin America region phone, and Kies said my firmware was up-to-date with I5800LVIJG7 (2.1 Eclair). I would have liked to upgrade through Kies, but that wasn't an option for me. I'm glad for the alternative.
