its nice to know that the galaxy s phones will get gingerbread. there should be no reason for us to wait to receive it since its arriving on the nexus s on the 16th. i know samsung wants people to choose its newest phone over the rest, but people wont buy the nexus s if they know the lack of support from samsung and the carriers on getting the updates out on a timely manner.

The nexus s will be updated and supported by Google not Samsung....so the Samsung update issues don't apply

The only thing Samsung has confirmed is our ability to harass them on twitter and get a canned response from ^Mary or ^Sab

Galaxy S support

i understand your frustration...however as usual my question is, what is specifically that you want from froyo?

the usual answer is flash...and personally i feel its significantly overrated on a mobile device unless you have hacked hulu on it

I could almost gaurentee that most of the people that are making it such a big deal do not know what the changes truely are....now trying not to trip as i get off my soapbox

The only real reason I want 2.2 is I am hoping more roms will be available.

If its that big of an issue then y not root, get dj05 leak, and a new rom/kernel? I can say that probably anyones phone on here with "aftermarket" lol rom/kernel will outrun an X..

I had a rooted eris and had a TON of roms on there but never had one that ran as smooth as the original. So I am scared of hacking this one and then being disappointed and jumping from rom to rom weekly.

Default What I want from Froyo

1. the ability to my micro sd card function as the on board memory- to make up for the dismal 2 GB Samsung gave this thing- I can't believe these phones made it to marked months after the Dinc did with so much more on board memory.

2. fixes to little glitches like the GPS issue.

3. Flash would be nice. I am a baseball fan (as my screen name would imply) and I have a subscription to Major League Baseball's broadcasting service. If I had Flash, I would be able to watch the games via mlb.com. Right now I can't. It's ever more upsetting when I think about the fact that Apple and MLB made an app that allows iPhone users the ability to watch games on their units. I HATE admitting that iPhones are superior in any way, but in this area they are.

lag wont be fixed by 2.2...that is a result of samsung using the rfs file system for whatever reason

gps is fixed by the leaked dj05 update, but i understand resistence by those not wanting to root and run leaks

true google experience on this phone will only come from aosp, which seems to require 2.2 ril files...so im hopeful that happens soon...but again you will need to root to use an aosp rom

1. 2gb is a tad small yes....but really saps had like a million apps at one point and couldnt come close to filling it up ....but when 2.2 (when it comes) will allow apps2sd fwiw

2. like was mentioned, if you need to fix gps, root and install dj05

3. well im usually "meh" when it comes to flash, but it seems like you have a legit reason to want it...id assume by next baseball season (and if we dont ahve 2.2 by then, we never will) you ll be good to go

wel theres that and other things here and there i agree ....my point is just that the yelling for 2.2 is a bit much and over things that generally arent a huge deal....dont get me wrong, its a big screwup for sammy/vzw to not have it out yet

The reason i'm complaining is like you said about other phones having 2.2 and not me. Also, that would mean that future updates that might have major changes will also be delayed for my phone.

But I guess you misread what I wrote because what I was trying to ask is what updates are coming with froyo that makes you so eager to get it. Most people truly don't know what changes there will be with froyo they just want it because they hear "we should have it". And as for it pushing back other updates we really don't know that. I know that everyone is saying that it will make gb take till say summer but we don't know that. And we also don't know that we won't just skip froyo and go straight to gb, not likely but until we get froyo who is to say any different. I do hear people say thats wasting money but its not. Other galaxy s phones are getting froyo so that isn't wasting money. Maybe verizon couldn't work bugs out of froyo so they are waiting til after nexsus s to give us gb. Of course they wouldn't do this before christmas because that would take away from ppl buying the nexus. So until we see one or the other we really don't know. Ahh now there's my .02

And we also don't know that we won't just skip froyo and go straight to gb, not likely but until we get froyo who is to say any different. I do hear people say thats wasting money but its not. Other galaxy s phones are getting froyo so that isn't wasting money. Maybe verizon couldn't work bugs out of froyo so they are waiting til after nexsus s to give us gb. Of course they wouldn't do this before christmas because that would take away from ppl buying the nexus. So until we see one or the other we really don't know. Ahh now there's my .02
Your right. Im not saying that I dont like the SF. I actually like it over any other VZW phone and I love how everything functions. I dont have any complaints about the phone. Im happy with my choice. I think I over reacted when I found out that we didn't get froyo in November and would have to wait until next year. Hopefully you are right about other updates pumped out the same time as for other phones. We'll just have to wait and see.

It would probably be a good idea to just have a " I can't wait for froyo complaint thread "where everyone can voice their opinion of why they are so frustrated in waiting for it to release.
Seems as any mention of froyo or GB just turns into one frustrating and meaningless thread like this one.
I for one like to see all of the complaints because in this world it is the squeaky wheel that gets greased first unfortunately. I say the more complaints the better to put sammy and vzw under pressure for the release.
As I have said before I can understand why those who are afraid or do not want to void there warranty by rooting are so frustrated waiting for froyo or at least the DJ05 bug fix.
I know alot of folks are sick and tired of all the complaints scattered all over the place, but that is mainly from all of us that are rooted and really have no need for froyo. I think if all of the complaints were mereged into one thread it would make this forum alot easier on the eyes. It would also make it alot easier for sammy and vzw to see just how many are frustrated and may not purchase another Samsung phone in the future. The majority of Galaxy X phones are non rooted by a huge margin and that is the majority that sammy and vzw are going to have to deal with.
If you think about it this way, those that are non rooted are following the sammy and vzw rules as opposed to us rooters who violate those same rules. The part that sucks the most is: All of the perfectly good phones that are being returned from borking which down the road is going to bite us in the ass big time. I will never encourage rooting to anyone, if they decide to do themselves that is fine and I will help all I can. Encouraging anyone to root is just shooting ourselves in the foot. JMHO

I want Froyo for:

1) Faster browsing and better power utilization
2) Push chat notifications for the new FB update
3) Gingerbread KB hack
4) Chrome to Phone
5) Flash would be at the bottom of my list

There's a lot we're missing by not having Froyo

fair enough ....having had 2 android phones with 2.2 im painfully aware of the limitations of 2.1....i just like to point out that the majority of people complaining about the lack of updates usually dont have a good reason for it other than "i want it"

when people have specific reasons, i completely understand

Well Froyo 2.2 obviously has enhancements & fixes in it, so those that are technical savy naturally want it. i think the frustration is coming from the fact that it was promised 6 months ago. if you arnt going to deliver on something, thats fine. just dont say you are.

i bought my phone under the premise as supplied by samsung that it would be updated to froyo. if i would have known it wouldnt be until 2011 i might have made a different choice.

Amen to that. That is exactly why I am angry at Samsung and mostly at VZW: Their broken promises. And i want flash to work cause it'll make me feel better.

Forget Gingerbread, my wife made frosted sugar cookies last night and I dipped my phone into said frosting, instant 50% performance boost (and it tasted way better than gingerbread).

Nope, eating all this Gingerbread leaves a bad aftertaste, so the next version is going to be Halitosis.
