as far as i knew 1.6 is a baseband so couldnt do wireless flash, it had to be done by wire.
its got nothing to do with smartphone dumbphone, the reality is that people dont update as often as you expect if at all.
I know loads of people on HTC winmo devices that havent moved from the 1st rom, alot of which use them for business purposes.
samsung do give updates to the phone, infact one could say 3 updates in less than a month is pretty good going in comparison to other manufacturers.
we have a few custom roms out and a new one that is looking to be good shizzle and on par with the stuff cynogen is doing.
i dont understand the big rush to 1.6 tbh i really dont
also you knew this would be vanilla android when you bought it.
