Nope. No releases. No updates. No nothing. Lucky if you manage to speak to one of the tech support bods who knows what they're doing.
Had an argument with Samsung front line support who insisted first, that my network provider is responsible for releasing their firmware. I explained I was off contract and could use any provider I want, Im not tied to a network. Then he insisted Google make the firmware to which I just said "Really, Google make Samsungs TouchWiz 3.0 interface? Amazing!"
I wish they would just acknowledge the problem with the GPS.
I know they're releasing leaked firmware to geeks, but the direction they're taking is pitiful.
Instead of fixing the problem with signal lock, getting the phone to lock onto <20SnR satellites, or getting the phone to lock onto more than 8 satellites, they're spending all their time fudging the signal to smooth out the path in the event of a GPS signal loss.
They're not actually sorted the GPS signal loss.
Then if you actually take a look at everything in the background, it's laughable.
Under LBSTestMode, you can set MS Based or MS Assisted A-GPS mode, you can turn on or off Skyhook, as well as GPS Plus, then there's another page for SUPL settings (which I thought was A-GPS) which points to a SUPL server that no one can actually find on the internet, but the jupiter.xml file points to bcmls2.glpals.com.
Then of course there's another tick box under Location and Security to get the device to use Wireless or Mobile networks.
That's like what, six or seven different technologies?
No wonder GPS isn't working.
