Just don't get too excited based on emails or comments from some low level tech. or an over-excited fanboi.

Understand this: There is NO OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM SAMSUNG. They have made official announcements about it for the Galaxy S, but NOT the Spica.

There are even doubts that the ARM processor in the Spica is sufficient for Flash, which is a key selling point in 2.2.

If they do decide to put out an upgrade to the Spica, good, but as I said, until they either SAY they are going to do it through an official channel, or actually do it, I am not holding my breath.

I suggest you don't get too excited yet.

Frankly, if they do upgrade it, I'll install it quick enough to sell this legacy phone and move onto something else.

I think Samsung's customer support is a pile of f***ing sh*t.

My thoughts exactly. Why would Samsung have to contact "head office"?

If you're talking to Samsung Support, you should be talking to "head office"!

Which is why I won't take the word of a couple of low level lackeys.

Default OKay guys lets put this one to bed

Hi is the offical answer from 3 mobile UK

" They’ve [Samsung] advised us due to the limited internal storage of the device that Portal cannot be upgraded to the full Froyo version. In fact as it stands Samsung will not be relasing Foryo for Portal [Spica] for any operator."

Have a look here to view it on the 3 site Samsung Galaxy Portal – video Welcome to the Three Blog

So 2.2 is not coming to the I5700 (spica - galaxy portal or whatever its called in your country) from 3 mobile.

why will there be a lot of angry customers samsung have never said that the galaxy lite/spica/pootal was getting 2.2

im not angry at samsung for not updating to 2.2 i was at t mobile and still am thats why i gave my pootal to my girl friend..the bit that did it for me was when they said that the 2.1 update was not benaffical to our customers what a joke but now they have released 2.1 5 month behind every body else

i no its called the portal the reason i call it the pootal is because its the way t moblie has treated its customers not a the phone being poo as its a good phone

Follow my root guide, and by default it installs tethering software.

because that's the status right now

New here, obviously. There's just a few things I want to know...

I've been reading through the posts and I'm seeing 'Yay! 2.2!' and 'No. No 2.2 (haha)'

So what's the story with the Spica and Android 2.2? Is it coming or not or is noone certain yet?

Also I've noticed some people have been waiting quite a while for this firmware update. I'm new to the Android system so I'm asking: what's so special about this update (apart from Flash)? I know I could look up a website and get some opinionless stock answer but I want to know what you guys think. Should I be disappointed if the Spica never gets 2.2? What does the new update offer and why are Samsung and alike being so vague about it?

It's a lot of questions but I'm just as clueless now of what to think than I was before reading this thread.

Thanks in advance!

What's apparent is that some low level nobody at an Irish carrier told someone they'd be upgrading it (and on another thread, a low level tech in Dubai).

But on the Three blog, talking about their "branded" Spica, the Portal, they stated:

"Thanks for your post. Samdroid is an unofficial version of Froyo, not released by Samsung. They’ve advised us due to the limited internal storage of the device that Portal cannot be upgraded to the full Froyo version. In fact as it stands Samsung will not be relasing Foryo for Portal for any operator."

Which is a lot more specific and says they've actually spoken to Samsung.

You can draw your own conclusions, but this sounds to me as if they want us all to buy Galaxy S's.

Well they can f**k off.

Initially Samsung Mobile Singapore stated in their fb page (Samsung Mobile Singapore | Facebook) that they will be updating spica to 2.2, but when I dropped them a message again 2 weeks ago, they said that it won't be coming out. Boo!
The whole page's on Samsung Galaxy S.

Dammit, spica's not even a year old!

Okay, so 2.2 won't be released for Spica. Samsung would've made more noise about it if were coming out anyway.

Is this such a bad thing? What won't my phone be able to do without this update?

@ikra0nite

well, we won't die without 2.2. 2.1 is quite a good update from 1.5 (better battery life, bluetooth etc.) but if I am not wrong, 2.2 supports stuff like wi-fi hotspots & tethering (older versions do it with apps), apps2sd (= able to install more apps!) and faster performance.

Or at least, these are the three reasons I have for wanting to upgrade to 2.2.

there's adobe flash support too, but not too important for me :P

Here are some of the highlights: Android 2.2 Platform Highlights | Android Developers

For more details...Google!

All these are already available on 2.1. You just need to update to them.

Clues..

Root the phone. (Allows customisation)
Install Samdroid Kernel LK208 (installs customisation)
Install Samdroid Kitchen (Provides Tehtering)
Install Samdroid Turbo (3 x Permormance and improving)
Install Xmister I/O Performance Boost (2 x Access Speed)

If only there was some sort of guide available or something that could help you?

We sholud ask Samsung for an official statement on their website. They should say only:

Yes, Froyo for Spica will be available officially, OR
No, Spica won't get 2.2 upgrade.

This is it, there would be no more questions about it.
Is there a reason, why not to ask them? Seriously. I'm hunting every piece of infos about Spica&Froyo, and they could solve our problem with a single sentence, on their website

I just received this link, apparently from Samsung Benelux:

That has got to be the flawed excuse ever by Samsung
Samsung I5500 Galaxy 5 vs. Samsung I5700 Galaxy Spica - GSMArena.com

so i5800 is getting 2.2 but the more powerful spica isn't "due to hardware limitations"?

so if internal memory was the only problem, surely i7500 deserves an update then?

Clues..

Root the phone. (Allows customisation)
Install Samdroid Kernel LK208 (installs customisation)
Install Samdroid Kitchen (Provides Tehtering)
Install Samdroid Turbo (3 x Permormance and improving)
Install Xmister I/O Performance Boost (2 x Access Speed)

If only there was some sort of guide available or something that could help you?
Links please on how to root and where to get the apps needed.

BTW, shouldnt someone change the title of this thread, it's misleading?

Thumbs down

I found this article for those thinking of rooting their Samsung and what won't work after rooting and installing 2.2, assuming you won't brick your i5700:


working:
  • Touch Screen
  • Home and other keys
  • Send and Receive SMS/ Make calls
  • GPRS/Edge/3G With manual APN configuration.
  • Vibration
  • SD Crad/ USB Mass Storage
  • Google Services like Gmail, Market, Contacts and Calendar.

not working:
  • Audio –No ring-tones, voice etc
  • Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth
  • GPS Services
  • Sensors

No ringtones, no voice. That's going to be one very useful telephone, isn't it.
