i have found this out about the phone but dont no if we will use this to install the update..what they might do is release a app to put on the phone and you have to use Samsung Kies software suite to put the app on you phone then you can update to 2.1 Samsung Galaxy i5700 Spica to get Android 2.1 in Q2 Unwired View

as far as i know, the official 2.1 update for the spica should come in april (not sure how it will be provided since new pc studio does not really work with this phone). In the meantime, you can google to find guides how to install the unofficial 2.1 rom on your spica.

There is an unofficial method as detailed in this blog post.

Of course, like most hacks, there are a few caveats and bugs. If it indeed is April when we get Android v2 and above on the Spica, then it isn't all that far away, is it ?

And by official, you mean completely unofficial and not sanctioned by Samsung or Google in any way, right?

Any update on firmware availability? Nokia is connecting people... Samsung is disconnected with customer once they sell the piece. I am wondering what preventing them to announce the schedule so that customer need not to google everyday get the news....

guys finally i got eclair working in my fone gt5700. it is obviously an unofficial way but pretty easy. just search for guide "how to update firmware of spica" n you can do it yourself. you have to download a firmware 2.1 of any choice of baseband version and a ODIN application. i guess least chances of bricking your fone. if you are not dumbest in the world then go for it. you can do it easily as i did. eclair is great and finally bluetooth works in my fone. feeling like nexus! hahhaha....
any help regarding update, you can ask me. i will tell you exactly what to do.

We're playing the waiting game. Most of the european countries that should get this first haven't so it's probably not our turn yet. Meanwhile you could make sure your phone connects and is detected by NPS as "up to date" since there isn't a 2.1 update yet.

hmmm....The NPS is already Up To Date. I've got the latest samsung New PC Studio..The problem is, when i want to download the update firmware from the NPS, there's GT-I5700 in their gadget list to download the firmware..But i don't know why, the NPS don't want to start downloading..and say the device isn't suppoprted...

So, to make sure we're on the same page:

You run NPS. It detects that your phone is connected over USB as indicated by the icon on the top right mounted in an OSX-like visual. You then click on the triangle and go to "upgrade mobile phone" it then searches for an upgrade, finds it but then claims your device isn't supported?

Also, are you running NPS 1.4 or 1.5? I've read in various situations in which versions of 1.4 won't support the phone properly

If we're on the same page and you're on 1.5, then i don't have an answer or idea for you

the only difference between firmwares as per continent category is the language recognition in them. and english is default in almost in every one. so if you are good at english. you can update your phone with any firmware you wish.

i have myself updated my phone with european version when i reside in ASIA(india).

hope it will help!

I've followed the procedure to install xxxxJCF - and I subsequently tried xxxxJD1 as well - and Odin seems to do exactly what it's supposed to do.

But when the phone reboots I get the Triangle/Exclamation mark warning, and when I power off/on I get the Samsung logo and a progress bar, and when it hits the end it just hangs.

Not just a few minutes, 20, 30, I've given up.

Anyone got any advice they can offer?

Cheers,
Chico

*** UPDATE ***

I finally managed to complete the update using the .tar and the .ops file from Message 29 in this thread:

New FW I570EXXJD1

Worked just fine, so if you have the same problem as me, stalling at the Samsung logo after flashing, try this out.

Cheers,
Chico (A very happy Chico I might add).

May I ask which individual told you this? Such a comment seems rather unwarranted since there is no logical reason to conclude North American phones have a greater chance to brick.

As long as you follow the same procedure, everything should work out. For a North American user, since none of these firmwares are from a North American source, you will definitely need to take a few steps after reflashing, such as setting up your APN from your NA provider, since they will likely not be available in the firmware you flash over (use something like APN backup and restore for this).

I am from Canada and my phone is Rogers (my service provider) branded. I really want to update my phone but when I go into the about screen on my phone the Model Number is: GT-I5700R. For people in the rest of the world isn't it GT-I5700? If I install a European firmware for example would everything work or would it be ok? If something doesn't work is there a way to go back to 1.5? Do I loose the crap that the service provider from who I bought the phone put on? Also is the installation process just the normal instalation process from Home

The R might be there merely because the North American HSDPA bands for rogers are 850/1900 and not the ones you would normally find on the phone. I know of at least one user on samdroid.net who flashed his rogers galaxy spica without a problem. beyond that, the hardware itself should all be the same, and thus there shouldn't be any harm in flashing any official firmware onto any phone.

It's kinda like how its the same android firmware for a google nexus one regardless of where the phone is.

Thx I got it to work yesterday and I am very happy I upgraded. No more lag on games and phone seems faster. When I go to the about screen now the model doesn't have the R their anymore, but I don't really care about it everything still works. The upgrade though is well worth it.

I tried to update last night and today, both times Odin's clock kept counting upwards and i was forced to pull my USB cord at around 4 hours.
I give up, I dunno what to do, I want 2.1 but I guess I'll have to wait a couple months for an official release in Canada.

Default The update is available now in UK & Norway

You will need to get the new version 1.4 pc studio. Windows XP SP3

Then I downloaded the auto mount program from the market, then ticked the usb debug.

I started the software then plugged my phone in it was found on the second attempt.

It said that an update was available and I proceeded with this which was a version of the 1.5. after this installed, I turned off the phone unplugged it then turn it back on.
Then again connected it to the PC again it found available update then clicked on it and it started downloading it, the phone then turned it self off and then back on. Now i have 2.1 and it comes straight with the 3 home pages, you have then to press the up arrow button and then select edit. Click the plus symbol to add a home page then select the one you want.

There are some good features and some bad everyone has different tastes so I will not go into these just to say the phone is better for me, yet I still feel a little let down there is not more features available.

I hope this helps.

#7465625*638*<unlockcode>#

But you need to get an unlock code first. Also, this isn't THAT sim lock. This sim lock is referring to the one you can set under security on your phone, so everyone has to enter a code before using the phone.

Default a complete guide to update firmware from cupcake to eclair

Friends, after i was successful in achieving an update to my spica, i prepared my own guide to the same. you can refer to it and easily get your phone updated. newer versions are arriving but still no official releases worldwide. so we have to apply such methods!
go ahead!

Take Note that there are different firmwares available for each region. The Firmware mentioned by faixan.6x in the above guide is the Asian one.

There are others availble. Here are the latests version no's for each region.

I570EXXJD4 European version
I570EDXJC4 Asian version
I5700JPJC1 African version

I have the latest European version. PM me for a Rapidshare link.

So, got past that screen, and my phone is boned. All I'm getting is a samsung screen with a progress bar. Nothing more, and the Volume down and Camera key thing isn't putting my phone into USB mode... help..
Nevermind, I was able to get to USB mode, but I'm still stuck with bum software


Well, thats all sorted out. Running, SLOWLY but running. I'm now in the process of trying to figure out live wallpapers and other things! Thanks for the guide!

live wallpapers dont work on every kernel version available for spica! i guess some of the livewallpapers work on ....JB2 version. but it is now the older one.
check out http://androidmodz.com/tutorials/16-how-get-live-wallpapers-working-your-mobile-phone.html about the tutorial that can help you out!

I found this impossible as my Spica was not recognised by Kies or New PC Suite (although it mounted) and I didn't want to risk wiping my phone by reprogramming it.

I took it into my network provider's store (T Mobile) and they sent it away for the software to be updated. It came back a week later with Eclair on it (free of charge).

Just to let others know that there is this option available to them, if they are struggling as I did.

Ok, I need some help, and I have searched a bit and I'm getting tired. Rogers, Spica 5700R, running stock UXJA8, Cupcake. I think I am looking for UXJG9 (is this the latest update for Canada/Rogers)?
D/L'd the JG9 file from here -> multiupload.com/FOZT0MQNQ9 (via Samfirwares). However it unpacks into some .bin and .rfs files. Not sure where to go from there. I have ODIN 4.03 but if I understand correctly, I need some .tar files. I looked in some of the Euro spec files and they unpack into the correct .tar files. Also, where is spica.ops?

TIA.
Resolved: Found Spica.ops and realized you put the JG9.TAR compressed file in the "one package option" field in ODIN. Updated OK.

Having the same problem. Seems to connect with the latest PC suite from Samsung, but when you go to upgrade no phone is found.

Anyone know a solution? Don't really want to send the phone away.
