Yeah this is what I'm waiting for, I heard it would be on the next upgrade, but I really don't think it will be, as they carn't even get there software to work, chances of them getting somthing decent to work would be zero I think

Default Upgrade available in UK?

This page provide instruction to upgrade the Galaxy portal. I tried to download NPS as per the instruction. Quite surprisingly NPS installation file is quite different from the one listed under support page

New_PC_Studio_1.4.0.IL2.exe

Support - Phone Firmware Update - Samsung Mobile.

Can anyone try this and let us know whether it is working?

PS: This page is not yet published officially I changed the URL of i7500 to i5700 and landed on this page.

Uninstall EVERYTHING Samsung related using Control Panel > Remove program (do not remove drivers for your monitor if that is a Samsung model).

Then reinstall NPS, then the driver and try to connect your phone once this is complete. You may have more luck with the computer recognising the Lite/Spica/Portal after doing this.

It works for me, but I have to uninstall everything and reinstall each time I want to connect thephone to my Win 7 PC. Not great, but at least it kinda works!

You need not to reinstall everything each time, you reinstall drivers every time to resolve this issue. If you installed your application at default location then navigate to

C:\Program Files\samsung\Samsung New PC Studio\USB Driver

and install it again.

At least for android platform NPS is just a Junk.

I've tried at least 5 versions of NPS downloaded from various samsung sites, and I've got one that finally recognizes my spica(1.3.0 something.. I'm at work atm can post later). No updates ready yet though (just various error msgs).

here's one that seem specific for the spica though, didn't work for me, but maybe for others :

http://support-sena.samsung.com/content_services/software/New_PC_Studio_1.4.0.IJ3_ForI5700.exe

If I don't reinstall it just doesn't work. Already tried what you suggested.

Also if I don't reinstall I don't get i5700 like in this screen:
I5700 Galaxy Spica/lite officially gets Android 2.1

I get "Samsung Android Device" and "USB modem" which doesn't let you do anything.

I got my Galaxy Portal as an exchange for a faulty SE C905. I love the Portal but the support is awful and I now wish I'd waited another couple of weeks before pestering T-Mobile and I could've got the HTC Desire instead

I just don't get it!!

All the tech news sites are reporting that it is available now after receiving a press release from Samsung. Yet Samsung tell its customers that it isn't available and there is no date yet set for when it will become available.

Are they saying in the reply there that they don't yet know when it will become available or are they saying that they do know but they have decided not to tell anyone?!

The press release already said that it would be pushed out to other countries slowly. It should only be available in Germany now.

Any Germans on here who can confirm whether it has been released there?

It seems that Samsung are saying it has been released (in Germany) but in actual fact nowhere has it.

Eclair manuals are up on the UK site as kingdave pointed out, hopefully that means that a release isn't far up. The problem is that when you call Samsung the people you are calling are mainly for basic questions and they wouldn't know much about when the i5700 is getting an update. But T-Mobile said April a while back so I don't know if it'll be out before then .

Don't worry, it is coming to the UK however we don't know exactly when. However, I think for my next device(in 17 months ) I will go to HTC as they seem to offer fantastic customer service on all their old and new devices.

This does not mean anything. The manuals are updated on the german site since 15th of March. And the update is nowhere to be seen.

This forum(german) talk quite lot about the official upgrade they received since march 19th. Hence I assume update is already available for them.

Not really, they are talking about an 'offizielle Version (99,9%)' which is the 2.1 (I570EXXJCB) from the samsung-firmware/samdroid sites.

You should not fully trust google translate

And ... i live in Germany, and have not seen any update yet.


I have however updated the phone to the above firmware, and this might be a reason

It writes very clear, in that thread, that they have done the update with Odin, using the instructions from samdroid.net.

You people, just just be patient. The update will come eventually, otherwise there would not have been that much firmwares leaked from Samsung.

You are right patience is the key when we go for a handset from companies like samsung who release a software which doesn't recognize their own handset. Do they have a Q-team inside the organization?

Anyway I bought it in india without any tie-up with carrier and it cost only 12400 INR which is equivalent to 202.3 euro or 273 USD($). This help me to dispose it any time through ebay.

Do you have any idea since when the HTC Hero users are waiting for 2.1 update? Or other users with other devices?

As far as i know, the only phone that got an update to 2.1 is the Nexus one and it got the update from 2.0 to 2.1.

As for the disposing, you can do anything you want. Nobody stops you, it is a free world .

I didn't mean to dispose out of frustration. I meant to say that i do not have carrier tie-up(=freedom) and this device is the cheapest capacitive device available in india so that i will get a good resale value(=opportunity) currently.

This is true. I also got it because it was the cheapest device i could find with that specifications. And i am really happy with it.

Anyway, i am keeping an eye on the german forum, and on the update business and i will let you know as soon as something changes


Have a nice day!

Default Why I love my iPhone

This is exactly why I kept my iPhone, why I love my iPhone and gave my Spica to my girlfriend!

Whenever an update is coming from Apple, I get it right away. And I can actually download paid apps without rooting the phone og support pirating (I live in Norway, and Market only have free apps here).

Yes, iPhone has its problems to, and is kind of a closed solution, but everything works as announced, and the device + os gives me more presicion.

When software and hardware's not built for eachother this kind of things can happen, sad but true!

android market not giving you paid apps has nothing to do with samsung tho
I myself am also missing the option to get paid apps (Belgium)...

The only major downside for me about the spica is just this, the PC software
(that and a somewhat slow tilting)

Well you will be happy to know, that once 2.1 comes the tilting is much snappier and the phone is recognized with kies, so you can copy files to the phone and sync calendars or whatever you want to do with it.

Personally I don't know what use does the pc studio have even if it worked properly? I have my contacts, calendar and everything else in the cloud, and if I want to transfer files I just take the sd card out and stick it in my computer.

As to the paid apps problem I'm sure google will eventually make it possible to download them in any country. While waiting for that to happen the net is floating of them.

And by the way comparing the spica to iphone doesn't even make sense since it's more than twice the price, even though the hardware is pretty much the same.

If we knew when the handset is released on 3, this would help us know a date.

As NPS should be able to repair problematic software and reflash.

Three say this weekend they will start selling the handset, so I'd expect Samsung to start rolling out UK by then!

Help me find out IP/Port addresses for "Open Socks5 Proxies at Germany".

I can do the trick
Hopefully...

Following is an example...
Socks proxy list: free and anonymous socks proxy servers, socks4 socks5 proxy for free, US socks

I have been reading this forum (and others) regarding upgrade to 2.1 for some days now.
I am also eagerly waiting for 2.1 to come but then let's not forget that 1.5 isn't too bad. I have simply fell in love with Android. Lots of awesome free apps and a wonderful User Experience.

so just enjoy and wait for the upgrade to come... then enjoy more with a new experience []

you could try using the Tor proxy system (Tor: anonymity online)

Thanks. Thats great!

But how do I connect to some particular Tor Relay from Tor? I can get the Relay IP but I can't find the port number from the description. Basically I have to use both IP & Port to connect to SOCKS4/5. Also, is it possible to tunnel traffic through some particular relay from within Tor itself? Any Idea?

well... Tor is tricky a little bit did you try to find your answers in its docs?
i'm pretty sure that it is possible to decide whitch Tor Relay to use yesterday i'd managed to use German and French one

the port should be at localhost 9050 as far as i remember, but you can change it in settings. here http://www.ghacks.net/2008/01/29/configure-tor-to-use-a-specific-country-as-an-exit-node/ and here http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/proxies/115467-force-tor-use-only-us-relays.html you can find some help

and don't forget to turn off proxy-authentication

@ maciunio

Well I did go through local docs but couldn't find anything useful on how to use some particular relay from list of relays. May be I had overlooked something.

Well, that sounds cool, will give it a try. Thanks.

BTW I used proxifier and the results were identical
Fooling NPS to pull upgrades off the German Servers


@got-petrol

Convinced. This seems to be least required to even fool NPS. The reason why I wanted to give it a try, I heard someone from Germany having success upgrading ... at some forum I guess I landed earlier

It seems that NPS update begins to work

Samsung Galaxy Spica: Android-2.1-Update im Test - News - CHIP Handy Welt

google translate
From now owners of the Samsung I5700 Spica Galaxy offers the latest Android release for free download. So far, the phone worked with the restricted 1.5-OS (cupcake). The update to the modern 2.1-platform (Eclair) provides better performance and include additional camera settings.

How, where
The fresh firmware is theoretically loaded on the new PC Sync to the Galaxy Spica, which lies on the manufacturer's website. In practice, the update but not quite as simple - the experts of the CHIP mobile world have tried it.

Next silent on Samsung's support site that an update on Android 2.1 is present for the Galaxy Spica. In addition, the update works better on the program, PC Studio ', which is also available for downloading. In addition, the direct reference is missing, the cell phone store data as a backup on your computer.

Camera: Much more comfortable. Known how
Before the update be noted that the cell phone under "Settings - Information" uncheck "Only as a mass storage" and disabled "USB debugging" under "Applications" / "development" is checked. Cell phone via USB cable to connect to the PC, open PC studio - and ... During the first update procedure fails, run smoothly with our review sample, the second attempt. The new firmware is downloaded and unpacked.

When the software finally starts to install the update again Spica, the phone will restart automatically and the only option for mass storage enabled - our Windows XP machine reports a new mass storage. Shortly thereafter, informed us the PC Studio software that would not connect to the phone over and now would have the option of "disaster recovery" using the PC Studio. There is after all the instructions to remove the battery to be reinstated and the Spica turn with a special key combination again. Big sigh of relief: It is now easily contain old update.

First impressions
Immediately after the fall update us on some pleasant news. This allows the keypad to resolve more quickly and directly from standby to activate and deactivate the silent mode. The Android keyboard responds better for our taste. Essentially the camera options have been improved and provided with numerous new features. Thus, the digicam is now fairly intuitive to use. (fgo / wh)

so its out in germany going to try mine i bet it will not work

update
no its not been put on the english server yet but it means theres light at the end of the tunnel and the update is comming soon
